My word! Is this normal? Or is New Haven getting really fucked up (more than the usual amount)?

That sucks.

The young cops are usually the gung ho ones who chase the criminals down, let 16 go. Have not followed up with this story, does not help crime fighting. Maybe Tabbooma should break out his super hero leather jacket and get back to kicking butt :undecided:

Cash-strapped New Haven begins layoffs; 16 cops cut

NEW HAVEN — Sixteen police officers will turn in their badges and guns Thursday, the police union confirmed, as the city begins a first wave of budget-driven layoffs.

The officers were contacted by the captain of patrol Wednesday afternoon and told to report at 10 a.m. Thursday.

The move drew a strong response from the union.

“You can’t equate dollars and cents with public safety. People are going to get hurt in New Haven. They are paying high taxes, and they’re not going to get the services they deserve,” said police union President Sgt. Louis Cavaliere said after a packed and volatile union meeting Wednesday night. “They’re going to be out there alone. There are going will be times they need the officers and they won’t be there.”

The layoffs amount to about four percent of the police force, which remains one of the largest in the state.

The city did not confirm the layoffs, and city spokesman Adam Joseph repeated the message the administration has conveyed in recent weeks.

“In a difficult financial environment, the city will be facing difficult choices and will be (making them) in the best interest of residents and the taxpayers,” he said.

The layoffs had been rumored for weeks, but the news still caught many off guard. No police officers have been laid off in the city in at least four decades.

Officer Mike DiCocco, 27, a two-year veteran, is engaged to be married in June. He is one of the 16 cops told to report.

“I expected to be here for the next 25 years,” he said as he left the union meeting. “It’s devastating, but at the same time it’s reality now.”

Very sad...

A 17-year-old New Haven resident was shot and killed on Saturday.

After reports of gunshots in the area, New Haven Police Department officers found Vashun Lewis with a gunshot wound to the chest outside of 229 Goffe St. in Dixwell at approximately 12:15 p.m. After he was taken to the hospital, Lewis died of his injuries. NHPD Spokesman Joseph Avery said in a press release that the department has begun to investigate the incident, and is currently pursuing several leads.


Lewis is the 11th murder victim of the year.

NEW HAVEN — A 16-year-old shot late Wednesday on George Street has died, authorities said.

Police late Wednesday were at a shooting outside a corner store on George Street.

According to police, the shooting took place at about 9:15 p.m. near the intersection of Day Street.

The victim, a 16-year-old, was shot in the neck at least once, and initially was in critical condition at St. Raphael's hospital, police said.

Witnesses reported hearing six gunshots, and one witness said they saw the victim being chased down the street before being shot.

George Street was closed for several hours Wednesday night as police continued their investigation.

About 90 minutes after the shooting, police responded to a large disturbance at St. Raphael's Hospital and dozens of officers quelled the emotional scene.

One year after 80 new assault rifles landed at the police department’s armory, patrol cops are set to begin carrying them in cruisers for “extreme cases” where they are out-gunned by an active shooter.About 80 patrol cops will take part in a one-week training on Sept. 12 in how to use the Colt M4s, and will start carrying them in patrol cars as soon as Sept. 19, according to Assistant Chief Petisia Adger. This will be the first time that patrol cops have been allowed to use longer guns, which so far have been used only by the SWAT team.
The move was made possible when the police commission Tuesday night unanimously approved a policy outlining the use of rifles by patrol cops.
The new policy ends a long delay surrounding the new rifles, which have been stored in a vault at the Police Training Academy at 710 Sherman Parkway for the past year.
The guns will be used only in “extreme cases,” said Adger. “This is not a situation where you’re going to see officers walk down the street with a rifle in their hand.”

NEW HAVEN — A 67-year-old man from North Haven was shot in the buttocks Tuesday moments after refusing to give money to two hooded males.

The unidentified victim was shot at about 4 p.m. behind 42 Lilac St. and taken to the Hospital of Saint Raphael with injuries that were described as non-life threatening.

Later, police chased at least one man up to Sheffield Avenue and had the house surrounded.

According to Sgt. Donald Harrison, the victim said he was visiting a friend on Lilac Street when he was approached by two males who asked for money. When he refused, police said, one of them shot him.

Jeffrey Kerekes, who is running for mayor, said he was on Ivy Street to talk to a person who had concerns about crime and the lack of jobs in the city. He said he saw the assailants walk past him covering their faces from nearby security cameras about 10 minutes before the gunfire, After the shot, he saw the same two people fleeing.

“For too many people, this is what they live with,” he said later.

Tuesday was the second time the victm, who works as a bread deliveryman and has accounts in the neighborhood, was attacked. In February, a robber assaulted him inside the truck and on the sidewalk outside a Shelton Avenue convenience store.

He was bloodied and hospitalized but not seriously hurt.

Andre Kelley, 29, became the city’s 30th homicide victim of the year, the highest total in at least 15 years. He was found in the bathroom inside the first-floor in which he lived. A friend who came to visit discovered his body.

The killing was one of three separate shootings on Sunday that wounded five people.

Just after 3 p.m., Twan Singleton-Austin, 17, of New Haven, arrived at Yale New Haven Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. He said he was walking in the area of Shelton Avenue and Starr Street when he heard gunshots. He called a family member and got a ride to the hospital.

Then at 5:30 p.m., gunshots were reported in the area of 89 Shelton Ave. A few moments later, Yale University police stopped a vehicle at Broadway and York Street traveling at a high rate of speed and found a gunshot victim inside. Gordon Petteway, 21, was shot in the shoulder.
