Local lawmaker concerned about Police Accountability Bill

A nearly 12 hour public listening session on police reform proposals in Connecticut culminates with a special session of the General Assembly today.  State Senator Tony Hwang, whose district includes Newtown, says the short notice of Friday's session is concerning and he thinks a rushed approach to an emotionally charged issue affecting many lives needs to be slowed down.  Hwang says he and his colleagues must fully examine any unintended consequences to law enforcement to maintain public safety and municipal financial and legal liability that would occur if law enforcement lost its qualified immunity.  While he supports taking a closer look at the accountability and transparency of Connecticut’s police force, he notes that recent measures have strengthen police oversight and social justice.
