Known as the "land of steady habits" for its political, social and religious conservatism, the colony prospered from the trade and farming of its ethnic English Protestant population.
The Congregational and Unitarian churches became prominent here. Connecticut played an active role in the American Revolution, and became a bastion of the conservative, business-oriented, Constitutionalism Federalist Party.
The word "Connecticut" is a French corruption of the Native American word quinetucket , which means "beside the long, tidal river".
Reverend Thomas Hooker and the Rev. Samuel Stone led a group of about who, in , founded the settlement of Hartford, named for Stone's place of birth: Called today "the Father of Connecticut," Thomas Hooker was a towering figure in the early development of colonial New England. He was one of the great preachers of his time, an erudite writer on Christian subjects, the first minister of Cambridge, Massachusetts, one of the first settlers and founders of both the city of Hartford and the state of Connecticut, and cited by many as the inspiration for the "Fundamental Orders of Connecticut," cited by some as the world's first written democratic constitution that established a representative government.
The state took a leading role in the industrial revolution of the United States, with its many factories establishing a worldwide reputation for advanced machinery. The educational and intellectual establishment was strongly led by Yale College , by scholars such as Noah Webster and by writers such as Mark Twain , who lived in Connecticut after establishing his association with the Mississippi River.
Many Yankees left the farms to migrate west to New York and the Midwest in the early nineteenth century. Meanwhile, the heavy demand for labor in the nineteenth century attracted Irish, English and Italian immigrants, among many others, to the medium and small industrial cities.
In the early 20th century, immigrants came from eastern and southern Europe. While the state produced few nationally prominent political leaders, Connecticut has usually been a swing state closely balanced between the parties. In the 21st century, the state is known for production of jet engines, nuclear submarines, and advanced pharmaceuticals. Various Algonquian tribes long inhabited the area prior to European settlement. The Dutch were the first Europeans in Connecticut.
By , the new Dutch West India Company regularly traded for furs there and ten years later they fortified it for protection from the Pequot Indians , as well as from the expanding English colonies. The site was named "House of Hope" also identified as " Fort Hoop ", "Good Hope" and "Hope" , but encroaching English colonists made them agree to withdraw in the Treaty of Hartford.
By they were gone, before the English took over New Netherland in Original Connecticut Colony settlements were at Windsor in ; at Wethersfield in ; and in , at Hartford and Springfield , the latter was administered by Connecticut until defecting in They funded the establishment of the Saybrook Colony named for the two lords at the mouth of the Connecticut River, where Fort Saybrook , was erected in The Massachusetts colonies did not seek to govern their progeny in Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Communication and travel were too difficult, and it was also convenient to have a place for nonconformists to go. The English settlement and trading post at Windsor especially threatened the Dutch trade, since it was upriver and more accessible to Native people from the interior.
That fall and winter the Dutch sent a party upriver as far as modern Springfield, Massachusetts spreading gifts to convince the indigenous inhabitants in the area to bring their trade to the Dutch post at Hartford. Unfortunately, they also spread smallpox and, by the end of the —34 winter, the Native population of the entire valley was reduced from over 8, to less than 2, Europeans took advantage of this decimation by further settling the fertile valley.
The Pequot War was the first serious armed conflict between the indigenous peoples and the European settlers in New England. The ravages of disease, coupled with trade pressures, invited the Pequots to tighten their hold on the river tribes. Additional incidents began to involve the colonists in the area in , and next spring their raid on Wethersfield prompted the three towns to meet. Following the raid on Wethersfield, the war climaxed when Pequot men, women, and children were burned out of their village, in Mystic.
On May 1, , leaders of Connecticut Colony's river towns each sent delegates to the first General Court held at the meeting house in Hartford. This was the start of self-government in Connecticut.
They pooled their militia under the command of John Mason of Windsor, and declared war on the Pequots. When the war was over, the Pequots had been destroyed as a tribe. In the Treaty of Hartford in , the various New England colonies and their Native allies divided the lands of the Pequots,along with surviving Pequots, taken captive by the various tribes, amongst themselves.
In a group of London merchants and their families, disgusted with the high Church Anglicanism around them, moved to Boston with the intention of creating a new settlement. They understood theology, business and trade, but had no farming experience. The good port locations in Massachusetts had been taken, but with the removal of the Pequot Indians, there were good harbors available on Long Island Sound. Eaton found a good location in spring which he named New Haven.
The site seemed ideal for trade, with a good port lying between Boston and the Dutch city of New Amsterdam New York City , and good access to the furs of the Connecticut River valley settlements of Hartford and Springfield.
The settlers had no official charter or permissions, and did not purchase any land rights from the local Indians. Legally, they were squatters. The leaders attempted numerous merchandising enterprises, but they all failed.
The history of the New Haven colony was a series of disappointments and failures. The most serious problem was that it never had a legal title to exist, that is a charter, though the same can be said for Connecticut for most of this period. The larger, stronger colony of Connecticut to the north did obtain Royal charter in , and it was aggressive in using its military superiority to force a takeover.
New Haven had other weaknesses as well. The leaders were businessmen and traders, but they were never able to build up a large or profitable trade, because their agricultural base was poor, and the location was isolated.
Farming on the poor soil of the colony was a formula for poverty and discouragement. New Haven's political system was confined to church members only, and the refusal to widen it alienated many people. More and more it was realized that the New Haven colony was a hopeless endeavor.
Oliver Cromwell recommended that they all migrate to Ireland, or to Spanish territories that he planned to conquer. The colony had a very negative standing in London, and plans were afoot to merge it with New York. But the Puritans of New Haven were too conservative, and too wedded to their new land to leave or join the Anglicans in New York. One by one in the towns joined Connecticut until only three were left and they too submitted to the Connecticut Colony in They gave up their theocracy but became well integrated, with numerous important leaders and after Yale opened in , influential academics.
The three River Towns, Wethersfield, Windsor and Hartford, had created a general government when faced with the demands of a war. On January 14, , freemen from these three settlements ratified the "Fundamental Orders of Connecticut" in what John Fiske called "the first written constitution known to history that created a government.
It marked the beginnings of American democracy, of which Thomas Hooker deserves more than any other man to be called the father. The government of the United States today is in lineal descent more nearly related to that of Connecticut than to that of any of the other thirteen colonies.
On April 22, , the Connecticut Colony succeeded in gaining a Royal Charter that embodied and confirmed the self-government that they had created with the Fundamental Orders.
The only significant change was that it called for a single Connecticut government with a southern limit at the Long Island Sound , including today Suffolk County on Long Island, and a western limit of the Pacific Ocean, which meant that this charter was still in conflict with the New Netherland colony.
Indian pressures were relieved for some time by success in the ferocious Pequot War. While the Pequots themselves gathered again along the Thames River , other tribes, especially the Mohegans, grew more powerful, though they had a rivalry with the Narragansetts located in Western Rhode Island and Eastern Connecticut, and this rivalry shaped in a large part diplomatic matters between both Indian tribes and colonial affairs.
King Philip's War — spilled over from Plymouth Colony ; Connecticut provided men and supplies. Connecticut's contribution to the war also included the large number of Indian allies they brought into the war, including the Mohegans, led by Uncas and the Pequots, of which a small population had reformed from runaway slaves taken at the end of the Pequot War.
The participation of Native Allies is in a large part responsible for the Colonial Victory, and this participation was largely due to Connecticut's involvement, as they generally had the best relationships with their local Native tribes, in particular the Mohegans. More than three-fourths of all adult men provided some form of military service. Andros maintained that his commission superseded Connecticut's charter. At first, Connecticut ignored this situation.
But in late October , Andros arrived with troops and naval support. Governor Robert Treat had no choice but to convene the assembly. Andros met with the governor and General Court on the evening of October 31, Governor Andros praised their industry and government, but after he read them his commission, he demanded their charter.
As they placed it on the table, people blew out all the candles. When the light was restored, the charter was missing. According to legend, it was hidden in the Charter Oak. Sir Edmund named four members to his Council for the Government of New England and proceeded to his capital at Boston. Aside from some taxes demanded and sent to Boston, Connecticut also mostly ignored the new government.
When word arrived that the Glorious Revolution had placed William and Mary on the throne, the citizens of Boston arrested Andros and sent him back to England in chains. The Connecticut court met and voted on May 9, to restore the old charter. They also reelected Robert Treat as governor each year until Needless to say, this brought it into territorial conflict with those states which then lay between Connecticut and the Pacific. This agreement was never really accepted, however, and boundary disputes continued.
The Governor of New York issued arrest warrants for residents of Greenwich, Rye , and Stamford, and founded a settlement north of Tarrytown in what Connecticut considered part of its territory in May In , with King Philip's War posing significant pressure on Connecticut, New York attempted to land a force at Saybrook, in an attempt to take hold of the Connecticut River, and to assert their claim over all lands west of the Connecticut River itself, though these forces were repelled by Connecticut Colonial forces without a fight.
In recognition of the wishes of the residents, the 61, acres In exchange, Rye was granted to New York, along with a 1. In the s, the western frontier remained on the other side of New York. In the Susquehannah Company of Windham, Connecticut obtained from a group of Native Americans a deed to a tract of land along the Susquehanna River which covered about one-third of present-day Pennsylvania. This venture met with the disapproval of not only Pennsylvania, but also of many in Connecticut including the Deputy Governor, who opposed Governor Jonathan Trumbull 's support for the company, fearing that pressing these claims would endanger the charter of the colony.
The British government finally ruled "that no Connecticut settlements could be made until the royal pleasure was known". In the issue was settled in favor of Connecticut and Westmoreland, Connecticut was established as a town and later a county. Pennsylvania did not accede to the ruling, however, and open warfare broke out between them and Connecticut, ending with an attack in July , which killed approximately of the settlers and forced thousands to flee.
While they periodically attempted to regain their land, they were continuously repulsed, until, in December , a commission ruled in favor of Pennsylvania. After complex litigation, in , Connecticut dropped its claims by a deed of cession to Congress, in exchange for freedom for war debt and confirmation of the rights to land further west in present-day Ohio , which became known as the Western Reserve.
Pennsylvania granted the individual settlers from Connecticut the titles to their land claims./p>
One historian explains how well organized it was in Connecticut:. Given the power of the Federalists, the Republicans had to work harder to win. In , the state leadership sent town leaders instructions for the forthcoming elections.
Every town manager was told by state leaders "to appoint a district manager in each district or section of his town, obtaining from each an assurance that he will faithfully do his duty. These highly detailed returns were to be sent to the county manager.
They, in turn, were to compile county-wide statistics and send it on to the state manager. Using the newly compiled lists of potential voters, the managers were told to get all the eligibles to the town meetings, and help the young men qualify to vote. At the annual official town meeting, the managers were told to, "notice what republicans are present, and see that each stays and votes till the whole business is ended.
And each District-Manager shall report to the Town-Manager the names of all republicans absent, and the cause of absence, if known to him. The state manager was responsible for supplying party newspapers to each town for distribution by town and district managers. Connecticut prospered during the era, as the seaports were busy and the first textile factories were built. The American Embargo and the British blockade during the War of severely hurt the export business, and bolstered the Federalists who strongly opposed the Embargo and the War of Eli Whitney of New Haven was a leader of the engineers and inventors who made the state a world leader in machine tools and industrial technology generally.
The state was known for its political conservatism, typified by its Federalist party and the Yale College of Timothy Dwight. The foremost intellectuals were Dwight and Noah Webster , who compiled his great dictionary in New Haven. Religious tensions polarized the state, as the established Congregational Church, in alliance with the Federalists, tried to maintain its grip on power.
The failure of the Hartford Convention in wounded the Federalists, who were finally upended by the Republicans in Up until this time, Connecticut had adhered to the Charter, and with the independence of the American colonies over forty years prior, much of what the Charter stood for was no longer relevant.
In , a new constitution was adopted that was the first piece of written legislation to separate church and state in Connecticut, and give equality all religions. Gubernatorial powers were also expanded as well as increased independence for courts by allowing their judges to serve life terms. Connecticut started off with the raw materials of abundant running water and navigable waterways, and using the Yankee work ethic quickly became an industrial leader.
Between the birth of the U. Connecticut's first recorded invention was a lapidary machine, by Abel Buell of Killingworth , in Starting in the s, and accelerating when Connecticut abolished slavery entirely in , African Americans from in- and out-of-state began relocating to urban centers for employment and opportunity, forming new neighborhoods such as Bridgeport's Little Liberia. In , Quaker schoolteacher Prudence Crandall created the first integrated schoolhouse in the United States by admitting Sarah Harris , the daughter of a free African American farmer in the local community, to her boarding school in Canterbury.
Many prominent townspeople objected and pressured to have Harris dismissed from the school, but Crandall refused. Families of the current students removed their daughters. Consequently, Crandall ceased teaching white girls altogether and opened up her school strictly to African American girls. Connecticut manufacturers played a leading role in supplying the Union forces with rifles, cannon, ammunition, and military materiel during the Civil War. The state furnished 55, men. They were formed into thirty full regiments of infantry, including two in the U.
Colored Troops made up of black men and white officers. Two regiments of heavy artillery served as infantry toward the end of the war. Connecticut also supplied three batteries of light artillery and one regiment of cavalry.
The Navy attracted officers and men. Politics became red hot during the war. A surge of national unity in brought thousands flocking to the colors from every town and city. However, as the war became a crusade to end slavery, many Democrats especially Irish Catholics pulled back.
The Democrats took a peace position and included many Copperheads willing to let the South secede. The intensely fought election for governor was narrowly won by the Republicans. Connecticut's extensive industry, its dense population, its flat terrain, its proximity to metropolitan centers, and the wealth of its residents made it favorable grounds for railroad building, starting in By , miles of line were in operation, growing to in and in The main development after the Civil War was the consolidation of many small local lines into the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad — popularly called "the Consolidated.
It was a highly profitable enterprise, until it was bought out in and suffered serious mismanagement. New York's leading banker, J. Morgan , had grown up in Hartford and had a strong interest in the New England economy.
Starting in the s Morgan began financing the major New England railroads, and dividing territory so they would not compete. In he brought in Charles Mellen as president The goal, richly supported by Morgan's financing, was to purchase and consolidate the main railway lines of New England, merge their operations, lower their costs, electrify the heavily used routes, and modernize the system. With less competition and lower costs, there supposedly would be higher profits. The New Haven purchased 50 smaller companies, including steamship lines, and built a network of light rails electrified trolleys that provided inter-urban transportation for all of southern New England.
By , the New Haven operated over miles of track, and , employees. It practically monopolized traffic in a wide swath from Boston to New York City. Morgan's quest for monopoly angered reformers during the Progressive Era , most notably Boston lawyer Louis Brandeis , who fought the New Haven for years. Mellen's abrasive tactics alienated public opinion, led to high prices for acquisitions and to costly construction.
The accident rate rose when efforts were made to save on maintenance costs. Also in it was hit by an anti-trust lawsuit by the federal government and was forced to give up its trolley systems. The line went bankrupt in , was reorganized and reduced in scope, went bankrupt again in , and in was merged into the Penn Central system, which itself went bankrupt.
The remnants of the system are now part of Conrail. The automotive revolution came much faster than anyone expected, especially the railroads.
In Connecticut had 40, automobiles; five years later it had , There was even faster growth in trucks from 7, to 24, Local government started upgrading the roads, while entrepreneurs opened dealerships, gasoline stations, repair shops and motels.
The Republicans dominated state politics after , and had a lock on the legislature where the one-town, one representative rule guaranteed that small rural towns could easily outvote the growing cities.
While the Republicans developed factions over personalities, they drew together for elections. The Democrats had more internal dissension over issues, particularly the liberalism of William Jennings Bryan , and they were weakened in general elections. The rural Yankee Democrats battled the urban Irish for control of the state party. In , the Democrats elected their gubernatorial candidate Simeon Baldwin , a prominent professor at the Yale Law School.
As the Republicans split between President William Taft and ex-president Theodore Roosevelt, the Democrats flourished in , carrying the state for president, reelecting Baldwin, sweeping all five congressional districts with ethnic Irish candidates, and taking the state Senate. Only the malapportioned House remained in Republican hands and dominated by rural areas. The state did not participate much in the "progressive era," and the Democrats passed only one piece of liberal legislation; it set up a system of workman's compensation.
In , the Republicans pulled themselves together and resumed their control of state politics. Henry Roraback was the Republican state leader from to his death in His machine, says Lockard, was "efficient, conservative, penurious, and in absolute control. When World War I broke out in , Connecticut's large machine industry received major contracts from British, Canadian, and French interests, as well as the U. The largest munitions firms were Remington in Bridgeport, Winchester in New Haven, and Colt in Hartford, as well as the large federal arsenal in Bridgeport.
The state enthusiastically supported the American war effort in , with large purchases of war bonds and a further expansion of war industry, and emphasis on increasing food production in the farms. Thousands of state, local and volunteer groups mobilized for the war effort, and were coordinated by the Connecticut State Council of Defense. As the war ended the worldwide epidemic of "Spanish Flu" hit the state.
Fatalities were high because the state was a travel hub, was heavily urbanized so germs spread faster, and had many recent immigrants in densely settled areas. An estimated people died, about one percent of the population, and about one-quarter contracted the disease.
The largest groups were Italian , and Polish and other Eastern Europeans. They brought Catholic unskilled labor to a historically Protestant state. A significant number of Jewish immigrants also arrived in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These ethnic groups supported the World War the small numbers of German Americans tried to keep a low profile, encountering hostility and suspicion after the US entered the war. Ethnic organizations supported an Americanization program for the many recent immigrants.
Recently arrived Italians, Poles and others had to cancel plans to return to their home villages. They moved up as higher-paying jobs opened in the munitions industry. They deepened their roots in American society, and became permanent residents. Instead of identifying with their former ancestral villages, the Italians developed a new pride in being both Americans and Italians. Their children, born in the U. They were motivated in part by the government's commitment to a process to support an independent Poland, which was achieved after the end of the war.
Nativists in the s opposed the new immigrants as a threat to the state's traditional social and political values. The Ku Klux Klan had a small anti-Catholic and anti-immigrant following in Connecticut in the s, reaching about 15, members before its collapse nationwide in following scandals involving top leaders. With rising unemployment in urban and rural areas producing disaffection with Republican leaders, Connecticut Democrats saw a chance to return to power.
Roosevelt 's New Deal policies by creating new public services, contributing to infrastructure projects, and instituting a minimum wage. The Merritt Parkway was constructed in this period as part of the investment in infrastructure. Connecticut became a highly competitive, two-party state. On September 21, , the most destructive storm in New England history struck eastern Connecticut, killing hundreds of people. The hurricane caused extensive damage to infrastructure, homes and businesses.
In New London, a foot sailing ship was driven into a warehouse complex, causing a major fire. An estimated 50, trees fell onto roadways. The lingering Depression soon gave way to an economic buildup as the United States invested in its defense industry before and during World War II — Roosevelt's call for America to be the Arsenal of Democracy led to remarkable growth in munition-related industries, such as airplane engines, radio, radar, proximity fuzes, rifles, and a thousand other products.
Pratt and Whitney made airplane engines, Cheney sewed silk parachutes, and Electric Boat built submarines. This was coupled with traditional manufacturing including guns, ships, uniforms, munitions, and artillery. Although most munitions production ended in , new industries had resulted from the war, and manufacturing of high tech electronics and airplane parts continued. Connecticut's suburbs thrived as people moved to newer housing via subsidized highways, while its cities peaked in the s and then began a slow downhill slide as population spread into widely dispersed regions.
At the beginning of the s, the increased job market gave the state the highest per capita income in the nation. The increased standard of living could be seen in the various suburban neighborhoods that began to develop outside major cities. Construction of major highways such as the Connecticut Turnpike , subsidized by federal investment, resulted in former small towns becoming sites for large-scale residential and retail development, a trend that continues to this day, with offices also moving to new locations.
It attracted scores of corporate headquarters from New York, especially in the s, when Connecticut had no state income tax. Connecticut offered ample inexpensive office space, high quality of life to people who did not want to live in New York City, and excellent public schools. The state did not offer any tax incentives for corporations to move their headquarters. Labor unions were very powerful after the war, peaking in clout in the early s.
Since then the private sector labor unions have dramatically declined in size and influence with the decline in industry as factories closed and jobs were moved out of state and offshore. The public-sector unions, covering teachers, police, and city and state employees, have become more powerful, with influence in the Democratic Party. Deindustrialization left many industrial centers with empty factories and mills and high unemployment.
As wealthier whites moved to suburbs, African American and Latino made up a higher proportion of urban populations, reflecting their later arrival in the Great Migration and immigration, and relative inability to find and move to other jobs.
They had gained middle-class status through good-paying industrial jobs and became stranded. African Americans and Latinos inherited againg urban spaces that were no longer a high priority for the state or private industry.
By the s crime and urban blight were major issues. The poor conditions were catalysts for militant movements pushing to gentrify ghettos and desegregate the urban school systems, which were surrounded by majority-white suburbs. Connecticut had very strong state parties, with the GOP led by leaders, such as A. John Bailey was the state chairman of the Democrats from to his death in ; he was also the party's national chairman, until With the ethnics loyal to the Democratic Party, and labor unions at their peak, the Democratic Party strongly endorsed the New Deal coalition and its liberalism.
The Republican Party was mildly liberal, typified by Senator Prescott Bush , a wealthy Yankee whose son and grandson were later each elected as president from their new conservative base in Texas.
Connecticut had some difficulty in projecting its identity, with no big-league sports teams and its media markets dominated by outside television stations in New York, Providence, Rhode Island and Springfield, Massachusetts. Bailey's contact with the liberal element that dominated the Democratic Party was Ella Grasso.
He promoted her from the legislature, to Secretary of State, to Congress, and finally to the governorship. Bailey's usual success in dictating the state ticket was upset in , when the Republican gubernatorial candidate, Congressman Thomas Meskill , defeated a lackluster Democrat. More complex was the situation of Senator Thomas Dodd , a Democrat who had been censured by the Senate for his misuse of campaign funds. Dodd lost the Democratic primary, but ran as an independent and split the vote.
Bailey had an easier time in gaining re-election of Senator Abe Ribicoff. Weicker was repeatedly reelected until being narrowly defeated in He was elected governor in as an independent. In Democrats elected as governor Ella T. Grasso , the daughter of Italian immigrants. She was the first woman of any state to be elected governor in her own right. She was reelected in She "Closed the State" by proclamation, and forbade all use of public roads by businesses and citizens, closing all businesses.
Effectively residents were restricted to their homes. This relieved the rescue and cleanup authorities from the need to help the mounting number of stuck cars, and allowed clean-up and emergency services for shut-ins to proceed. The crisis ended on the third day, and Grasso won accolades from all state sectors for her leadership and strength.
Connecticut's dependence on the defense industry posed an economic challenge at the end of the Cold War. The resulting budget crisis helped elect Lowell Weicker as Governor on a third party ticket in Despite campaigning against a state income tax, Weicker's remedy to the budget crisis, a state income tax, proved effective in balancing the budget but was politically unpopular.
Weicker retired after a single term. Until the late nineteenth century Connecticut agriculture included tobacco farms. In the off-season they turn to the cities for temporary apartments, schooling and services, but with the decline of tobacco they moved there permanently.
With newly "reconquered" land, the Pequots initiated plans for the construction of a multimillion-dollar casino complex to be built on reservation land. The Foxwoods Casino was completed in and the enormous revenue it received made the Mashantucket Pequot Reservation one of the wealthiest in the country. With the newfound money, great educational and cultural initiatives were carried out, including the construction of the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center.
The Mohegan Reservation gained political recognition shortly thereafter and, in , opened another successful casino Mohegan Sun near the town of Uncasville.
The economic recession that began in took a heavy toll of receipts, and by both the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods were deeply in debt. Casinos provide an example of the shift in the economy away from manufacturing to entertainment, such as ESPN , financial services, including hedge funds and pharmaceutical firms such as Pfizer. In the terrorist attacks of September 11, , 65 state residents were killed. Greenwich lost 12 residents, Stamford and Norwalk each lost nine and Darien lost six.
The New York City skyline can be seen from the park. A number of political scandals rocked Connecticut in the early 21st century. These included the removal from office of the mayors of Bridgeport , Joseph P. Ganim on 16 corruption charges,  as well as Waterbury mayor Philip A. Giordano , who was charged with 18 counts of sexual abuse of two girls. In , Governor John G.
Rowland resigned during a corruption investigation. Rowland later plead guilty to federal charges, and his successor M. Jodi Rell , focused her administration on reforms in the wake of the Rowland scandal. In April , Connecticut passed a law which grants all rights of marriage to same-sex couples.
However, the law required that such unions be called " civil unions ", and that the title of marriage be limited to those unions whose parties are of the opposite sex. The state was the first to pass a law permitting civil unions without a prior court proceeding. In October , the Supreme Court of Connecticut ordered same-sex marriage legalized. In July , the Connecticut legislature overrode a veto by Governor M. Jodi Rell to pass SustiNet , the first significant public-option health care reform legislation in the nation.
The state's criminal justice system also dealt with the first execution in the state since , the execution of serial killer Michael Ross and was rocked by the July home invasion murders in Cheshire. As the accused perpetrators of the Petit murders were out on parole , Governor M. Jodi Rell promised a full investigation into the state's criminal justice policies.
On April 11, the State House of Representatives voted to end the state's rarely enforced death penalty ; the State Senate having previously passed the measure on April 5. Governor Dannel Malloy announced that "when it gets to my desk I will sign it". Eleven inmates were on death row at that time, including the two men convicted of the July Cheshire, Connecticut, home invasion murders. In and , Connecticut was hit by three major storms in the space of just over 14 months, with all three causing extensive property damage and electric outages.
Hurricane Irene struck Connecticut August 28 with the storm blamed for the deaths of three residents. On December 14, , Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people , including 20 children and 6 staff, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the Sandy Hook village of Newtown, Connecticut , and then killed himself.

The magistrates being police friendly in this case, convicted her He also went onto say to the police that she might have a case for sexual assault against the police if she wished to pursue that course.
Even the BMA object to the random use of intimate body searches by the police. Lord Justice Robert Goff overturned the conviction and suggested she pursue things by contacting a lawyer for further advice. Kelly, was subject to a strip-search after officers arrested him. He said they refused to say why he had been arrested and he was kept in a cell for several hours before being released without charge.
Mr Kelly revealed to reporters that the same police had arrested him four times previously and that he had been acquitted of charges brought by those police. But on this occasion he said, they decided to humiliate him and conduct a very intimate and embarrassing inspection of his body, and there was nothing I could do about it having about five cops around you ready to force you to bend over, he said. Kelly lodged a formal complaint and contacted a solicitor to begin a case against the Met Police.
Judge Justice Park in his summing up said he strongly disapproved of the 'outrageous manner' in which the police conducted their duties in order to search for imaginary items when they concocted their story to represent the truth!
Mrs George was beaten and had to receive medical attention besides suffering the trauma of her door being kicked down by a Detective Sergeant who said he was in charge of the raid. Seven officers broke in on the pretext of arresting her son for a crime they would not tell her. The Judge said it was plain to see that they immediately opted to invent a false story when they realised she might sue the police.
During the search they pinned her to a radiator while pulling out drawers, opening cupboards and throwing her property strewn over the floor. When she moved she was kicked and suffered blows to the stomach, chest and arms. The hospital recorded bruising and a black eye when she was admitted.
He said the police deliberately lied to him about the incident and awarded exemplary damages. On his arrest he was bundled into a van by officers, and a 'denied' assault took place by the officers. He was so badly injured that he was hospitalised with severe injuries sustained and inflicted by 'ghosts' -- officers said he hurt himself in the van? The hospital concluded he had been viciously kicked in the groin area and did not accept that a fall in a van would explain it.
Staff intervened when Mr Service's Catheter was dislodged during the struggle. Amazingly, at Camberwell Magistrates, the charge of dishonestly handling a stolen cheque was withdrawn on a lack of evidence, and they added a new one of ' assaulting a policeman and doing criminal damage to a police van'. The brutal attack happened to Mr.
Carlisle at a restaurant, Renton was off-duty and not alone; other officers were at his table. Renton did not like Carlisle who objected to his course and objectionable behaviour in the restaurant.
Renton decided to deal with him and in the fracas Mr Carlisle suffered a horrible injury that dislodged his eye in the station charge room after he arrested the man on trumped up charges. Due to the fact the restaurant staff seeing the flare up, a Police Sergeant came forward and told the court that Renton had asked him to to cover-up the incident. The Judge sentenced the cop to two years in jail, with six months suspended. He also suggested that one might be forgiven for thinking that some of the actions by police officers and Renton was to some extent, pre-planned?
It is indeed a kind of mockery when one considers that Jack Straw, home secretary in said that the police should not investigate themselves. He claimed that complaints against police should be done by an independent body. Yet, in the same year he claimed that the police were 'cooking the books'. Crime figures were being manipulated and down-played he said in order to confuse the public and make it seem like crime was being reduced effectively.
Using a dirty cloth to remove the stains only leads to a murky patch that waits to be whitewashed over or ignored as something permanent and part of the design. The Infamous porn squad was disbanded due to the discovery of top senior officers in the unit having links to Soho sleaze bosses who bribed them.
A score of other officers were investigated but never charged despite rumours of around officers taking payments from crime bosses being publicly talked about and boasted about by cops in Scotland Yard. It would be fine if this was true, but it isn't.
And what you read next certainly questions that, and it is but a snapshot of the real problem. King was fined for speeding mph. David Coker, he said that Officer Hepburn had done the assault.

Brian Parsons spent 11 years in prison for the crime, which he did not commit after police on the case constructed a false case. It was suggested that evidence was planted by an over-zealous and dishonest police officer. Whilst with the Devon force he raped a woman, and is now due to face trial in Exeter: It now transpires she is suing the Devon and Cornwall Police because they did not offer her enough help to return to work.

She was suspended from duty. The case was sent to the Crown Court. The offence was said to have occurred whilst she was on duty as a police officer. Scotland Yard once again pledged to rid the force of corruption as they have done so many times before? Commander Hayman vowed that their pals would be scrutinized and backgrounds of the jailed cops.
Police Commissioner Paul Condon with his elite anti-corruption squad rooted out twenty detectives after discovering malpractice in the Met. The activities of these officers included fraud, drug allegations, misbehaviour and impropriety. The case was not even contested so an order was made against the Police Commissioner, but he ignored the court and the money was not paid. Michael returned to court again and took out a garnishee order demanding the police chief turn up at court.
The Judge assured Mr. Alt that if the chief ignored the court again, the court would without fail, deduct the increasing amount from the Commissioner's bank account. It is reported that these three ran a police brutality squad in the city and up to being arrested were completely unchallenged. The called themselves ' the wolfpack ' and all three appeared before Chesterfield Magistrates Court. Court 6 was busy with four un-named cops on trial.

They are said to have stopped a motorist late at night and said he was in the bus lane. An arrest followed in which Constable Sams assaulted the man occasioning actual bodily harm.

He damaged Lee Scott's teeth with his baton and punched him in the face three times. In this next session we look at the drinking sessions when cops behave badly and go onto committing crimes. The Met Police launched an investigation and the four officers were bailed to appear in court. Alcohol was banned in the bar for six months.
The Nightclub staff alerted the police after seeing them on security cameras. It started after a National Crime Squad Detective abused a girl in the cloakroom and began fighting with security at the hotel. The other officers, all much the worse for heavy drinking piled in and a huge fight followed. One senior officer of twenty years experience told the Essex tactical support unit to get lost when they were called to intervene. Two Firearms cops had their gun licences revoked because of ' aggressive behaviour shown in the fracas.
He was bailed to appear before St. Dozens of Met Officers were at the party. They assaulted Francis Milburn after they made comments about him and then followed him home. The three officers lied and found themselves at the Old Bailey on charges of ' attempting to pervert the course of justice '. There is much more on this kind of thing so we will come back to it later. Another report showing that coppers were using their warrant cards to get favours, free drinks.
Rudeness by cops and arrogance topped complaints by the public. The report urged that the police tackle the grave issue spiralling out of control, to be addressed. Another promise to eradicate bad behaviour was issued yet again. He suggested to colleagues his rank held favour in high places and what he did was 'locker-room behaviour accepted by all at the station'. The sexual assaults and bad language was no more than a game he said. He admitted to having sex with a vulnerable woman who he was supposed to check on after she took an overdose.
He crept into her flat and got into her bed while she was still under the influence and decided to have sex with her. The Judge said he would be put on the sex offenders register.

Begley who worked with the Birmingham police was suspended and appeared before a court in Coventry. The West Midlands Police said they would review the position after the trial.
The youth had been picked up on a motoring offence and thrown into a cell. Shortly after three police officers entered the cell and one began questioning the young man. Things got very confrontational and because the youth did not cooperate, one of the officers slapped the boy across the face. The suspect said he wanted to report this immediately, and the officer pushed his face up against the boy and said ' no one saw me do it, and no one will say I did.
Sadly, this kind of thing still goes on despite CTTV as the cops have learnt to work around it and make sure a blow cannot be seen easily enough for a court to determine. The married police chief was said to have embarked on an affair with a business woman and that this exposure led to his decision to take his own life.
The two constables were found guilty of misconduct in public office and will be sentenced after the next trial. The two will face trial for the raping of a drunken woman. The two Surrey Cops from Hampshire were charged with rape, indecent assault and wilful misconduct. It was said by the prosecution that the patrol officers rushed back to Guildford Police Station in order to fix their stories and get them in first before the woman made her complaint.
One of them admitted to having sex whilst one denied it, only to admit it later. He received 16 months for strip searches and abuse concerning boys at the Lyndhurst station. Detectives from The Hampshire Force's Professional Standards Unit acted upon a complaint from the boy about his treatment. They arrested Inspector Hutchings and accepted the incident wasn't sexually motivated. It was said that Hutchings worked throughout the Hampshire area going to Havant in The above two reports obviously relate to the same cop, Gerry or Gerald, and in doing so throws up either a cover-up or case of misdirection.
The second report says that detectives accepted there was no sexual motivation in how he treated the boy, but in the first report we can clearly see that he was nailed for sexual offences against 11 prisoners and strip searches on boys?
The next glaring question is what came first, the dismissal or the jailing? I think not, not by any stretch of the imagination, What we have here is a scandal unexplained. Obviously the Hampshire Police hoped that these two cases and reports might never be connected. The offences began in and went until Some of the attacks would take place in the back of his car. He was finally caught and charged with 20 sexual offences including rape, indecent assault and indecency with a child.
He was jailed for 10 years. It was described as a revenge mission after Pc. Scannel became annoyed in a personal incident involving her brother. Sergeant Haque was already awaiting trial over a previous incident involving misconduct prior to this incident. The Sergeant strangled his wife in a furious attack leading to bodily harm. The Hayling Island based cop with 29 years in the force was dismissed after doing two months of the jail sentence.
He was on patrol and radioed in to say that he was watching raid suspects , a group of masked men near a shop. On examination of the bomb hoax it was found samples taken from his car matched the making of the bomb. No raiders were ever found. It was just a lie that if not so serious, would have been seen differently said the judge. He told the court that he was seized by cops who accused him of kerb-crawling.
He had been collecting for a charity when police grabbed him and took him to Southampton Central Police Station. Mr Fricker 64, is deaf and medically unable to have sex it was said, at the police station he asked for an interpreter, but it was ignored and not provided. When Mr Fricker of Botley, near Southampton tried to take the sergeant's number, the policeman deliberately covered it up. The charge for kerb-crawling was dropped.
In a press statement at the time, they said their inquiry was into the disappearance of expensive goods. The Inspector based at Portswood, Southampton, was not named -- all they would say is that a serving police inspector had been suspended in relation to a criminal inquiry. He made 57 phone calls from the police station it was stated.
He was ordered to attend a sex offenders program. The officer of eight years service was allowed to resign? Sean Hodgson went to prison for 27 years based on a false confession probably coerced as around this time, many detectives employed these tactics. He was jailed for murder on the Hampshire police evidence which was held together by the 'confession'. The West Midlands Crime Squad were practicing this at roughly the same time along with other units around and into the 80's.
The real murderer David Lace admitted the crime, but this was dismissed, but now DNA has revealed it was him. The Hampshire police say this is most regrettable and they wish to put things right. This matter borders on a Major Corruption Probe, a probe that never happened due to 'in-house' police tactics by Chief Constable John Hoddinott in Good cops are hard to find, and easy to set up they say.
This charge actively led to his death -- he committed suicide. The young man actually dropped the charges, but this did not help this officer. A fellow officer who was on the Isle of Wight with Graham Cruttenden spoke out about the file prepared against the Pc. He said it was one of the worst proposed cases he'd ever seen and police procedures had not been followed.
The PCA rejected the Hampshire Police Force's findings twice and ordered that a new inquiry be set up by an outside force. It was felt by his wife who lodged a complaint against the force, that they were trying really hard to ruin the officer at the time of the allegation. And why would fellow officers and top brass be willing to do this?
Police Constable Cruttenden gave evidence against six Met officers in He refused to remain silent and disclosed that six officers helped themselves to several thousands of pounds worth of goods at a break-in at a branch of Austin Reed in Fenchurch Street, London.
The Squad had been called out on a call. The corrupt officers were convicted in , and were jailed. He was threatened by colleagues and received anonymous phone calls. However, due to the case being discussed in police stations throughout the Greater London area, it wasn't long before some members of the Hampshire force became aware of his betrayal -- the cops in London made sure of it. Others too said he would be healthier if he did not make waves over the Cruttenden matter and stay out of Hampshire?
The case concerned a resident on the Isle of Wight and an ' altered a letter' submitted to the court knowing it had been tampered with, and it contained an additional passage so the court would be made aware of what they thought about him.
They as usual, deny this claim saying 'some phantom policeman' must have done it without their consent. Their lawyer in court claimed at one time that the letter was not sent and it did not exist, yet he revealed that the offending part against the man had been ' cut and pasted' from an internal police report?
He also claimed for the police on examination of two letters, that there had been a 'typographical error' so one question remains - how did he know the unsent and non existent letter had been altered at an official level within the Hampshire Police Force?
Unfortunately the judge accepted it being an error and that was that. On researching our files in similar named 'forged and altered items by police officers' we found that no officers were ever charged or convicted and in just two cases at a tribunal stage judges made the comment that the officers had 'acted unwisely' but it didn't reflect on their honesty or integrity??
The police knew the stated article was altered and what effect it would have but they still presented it through their lawyer who also had prior knowledge that this evidence was disputed by the plaintiff, and that a complete new paragraph had been pasted onto the letter in order to give a different impression, an impression that was intended to reduce the plaintiff's case.
A cop for 16 years, Bayldon. The Judge warned him of a possible 12 months jail sentence which would be considered for pre-sentence options. The officer had sex with a 15 year-old schoolgirl it was said at Lewes Crown Court.
One charge of perverting the course of justice was not dealt with by the judge? Further to the court case, the police admitted they were looking into an internal matter involving the officer that he indulged in sexual activities in a police car while on duty. He is to be placed on the sex offender's register. The suspended officer from Ryde on the Isle of Wight, faced allegations of making false representations and misconduct in public office. The judge said the prosecution of Mr.
Thompson had been malicious and hit out at the CPS. The most serious assault on Mr. Thompson happened in the interview room at the police station instigated by officer Hewes.
The judge concluded that the Hampshire Police wrongfully imprisoned Mr. Thompson and violently began assaulting him because they did not like him. The court awarded Mr. Besides sex on offer was spanking sessions, the secret schoolmasters always liked that. These happened oh her off-duty days as it was best to have the spanking and caning sessions in the afternoon. She was based at Hythe Station in Southampton.
Two days were wasted as a result and the judge came to the conclusion that it amounted to a serious misconduct. The Detective claimed he sent an e-mail to the CPS in relation to certain evidence, but they denied receiving it.
The accused was acquitted and costs sent to the Hampshire Police. Officers had conducted a full strip search disobeying the laid down rules in the case of a minor by not calling in her parents or having an adult present to oversee that her rights were not violated. The girl Kerrie Crouch was just sat in the grounds of a Petersfield Church when the ordeal began.
Despite having no evidence of any crime two constables insisted that she go back to the station for a search. He said this was a serious matter when lying to the court. But Hampshire has not laid perjury charges against this obviously corrupt cop. Both officers made gestures in the workplace aimed at her and most of a rude sexual nature. It was said in the tribunal that the all male CID Division except for Evans actively or passively engaged in this behaviour, considering what they did as amusing.
Crowe and Brunt were moved from Hyde Police Station after their three and a half years torment on Evans and the Chief Constable sent an apology? Tango Security the clampers accused him of criminal damage to their property - the sign and four plastic ties valued at around 4p that he had cut. He did say he would recompense them to this amount but nothing else. The Hampshire Police were called by the clampers and they imprisoned Mr Hibbert in a cell for four hours!
The CPS apparently through the charge out, obviously not wanting to have egg on their faces The Police trying to salvage something and not have their heavy hand tactics amplified press-wise backtracked and said the matter was one now of a land ownership dispute between the clampers and him in a civil procedures court.
The police will automatically say they had to act on the word of law, but where was the commonsense and why must they throw someone into a cell without giving the matter more thought?
Isle of Wight Policeman Jason Bolwell in the Guildford Crown Court was arrested and suspended and faced two charges of fraud and false representation.
It was said in court he began his plan whilst on duty in the Central Police Station in Portsmouth. He was eventually trapped by his handwriting supplied to the magazine owners. The Hampshire Police Officer was jailed for four months. Hampshire police confirmed that an inquiry would be carried out by officers from the Thames Valley Police? The officer from Havant in Hampshire left three women victims very frightened as he called them from various telephone boxes in the area.
He was banned from going near the three women involved and faces dismissal from the Hampshire Constabulary. Journeying back to his cottage with CPS lawyer Penelope Schofield he hit the kerb in his precarious state, had a puncture and called in at the Bitterne Police Station where he was based.
It was there that he was breathalysed and arrested. It was then that lawyer Schofield began a lie to get him off a charge by saying she was the driver.
Eventually it fell apart and Schofield was charged with perverting the course of justice. The cop who did the night patrol conducted a test on himself before colleagues as a gesture to see how fit he was to drive when it registered he was over the limit.
They dropped charges later and said there was an error? His case was initially turned down, but he successfully won legal aid to continue. The incident was hushed up and only came to light when Mr. Prescott applied for a job at a Children's home, and his application was blocked. It was said that he had a similar name to the known criminal? It finally reveals that 22 Police Officers and 11 civilian staff faced an internal disciplinary hearing.
A force spokesman was quick to say these breaches referred to info of a personal nature rather than criminal? The Male cop was suspended by chiefs at the Cosham Headquarters in Hampshire. She specifically mentioned an incident in a police van when male colleagues handcuffed her and made her go face down on the floor of the police van. She said many of the others were involved in the abuse, but only one handcuffed her.
He spent a day in custody accused of sending texts to a woman, but he didn't even know the woman's name or do texts on his phone. He said police on the Isle arrived mob-handed, seized his phone and kept it for well over a week.
Hampshire cops arrived with three cars it is said to arrest Mrs Cole when she refused to hand back a ball kicked onto her land by kids -- and not for the first time either. She was finger-printed and had her DNA taken, and locked in a cell for five hours. And what's more those buffoons at the CPS are to consider the case as theft?
Cole only wanted to teach these teenagers a lesson, a lesson of respect for other people, but she cannot do that, and no-one else can when it comes to kids rights, they have been given the right to do anything and have everything, because if you deny them this you are abusing them? She never kicked their ball into her own garden, they did, and probably too many times to look the other way. It appears an eye-witness saw the off-duty cops climbing onto the vehicle.
At the moment, the Hampshire cops are not disclosing why or what these two officers were up to or observing? Both officers are said to be under investigation and face professional misconduct charges, and that the Hampshire Constabulary Professional Standards Department is conducting the investigation. He was found to be twice over the drink limit after a police woman smelled alcohol on him after he left the Park Gate Police Station.
The cop from Southampton has since retired on health grounds. It certainly looks like Hampshire cops are above the law, and this amply shows this to be the case.
It shows one could not arrest a cop in a 'citizens arrest' without the tables being turned on them, even if the cop was bent or up to no good. This kind of thing makes you wonder what they are really up to?
Hampshire police arrested pub singer Simon Ledger for singing ' Kung Fu fighting' a 70's record hit for Carl Douglas in I would suppose the song was aired on the radio for thousands of plays,,,but no racist accusation, Carl Douglas was not charged, nor did he appear in court, and the record was not banned by the BBC. One would think common sense might be adhered to,,,but no, the cops made the claim they have to respond to a complaint made by the public One should be aware that any complaint made about the police is not so diligently carried out, they often ignore and mess a complainant around before making any move to write out a statement It was his belief, of which he had no doubts according to his findings when he headed the inquiry into ' the Isle of Wight alleged child abuse and Paedophile ring and sacrifices' that he had no doubts what he was told by community social workers, were true.
This strange case was one that David Icke featured in one of his books and regularly featured it on his blog. The police headed by Kingman began investigating when it was claimed that a number of businessmen, prominent heads on the island were engaged in secret societies. We have since been told that Kingman has now retired, and the other matter never resolved. A spokesperson would not comment on allegations that the cops had been convicted of Benefit Fraud, Discharging a firearm, Possession of Cannabis, Drunk and Disorderly, Assault and Theft.
Members of the public in Hampshire were not pleased to hear this, and top cop John O Connor formerly of Scotland Yard said ' It is totally inappropriate that these officers have been allowed to stay in their jobs '. The Recent Murder of Jamie Dack by monstrous killers has not only led to criticism of the way Hampshire police responded to the Southampton victim, but the charge of misconduct on eight police officers: Two Inspectors, four police sergeants, two constables and one member of the civilian staff.
The outcome was that these accused all received ' management advice' Graeme Howlett, a holidaymaker from Essex. It was said by witnesses that the police mondeo car sped through red lights.
Howlett was very unhappy with the way police dealt with him after the accident, as the ambulance only took the officer, and his family had to wait for a second ambulance before being taken to hospital for treatment. He said his wife was cut and suffered bruising and the children were in shock besides his own injuries. Hampshire Police said they would be investigating?
In certain profile cases mentioned it has been discovered that police have shredded evidence and strangely 'lost files' even amid an investigation carried out by the PCA and IPPC. This happened on ' Operation Countryman ' the massive investigation into corrupt cops, and --' The West Midlands Crime Squad Investigation ' just to name two, there are several more on this site. It was confirmed that both officers were receiving 'management advice?
Nawrot took his case to the Court Of Appeal against the Chief Constable of Hampshire after confusing evidence dealt him a blow in another court. At the previous lower court Mr. Nawrot was found guilty of abusing and threatening a police constable. However, the Appeal Court Judges found that the police were seeking to avoid an award of exemplary damages for unlawful arrest and assault by the police constable because the appropriate sum or figure would be extremely difficult to be ascertained without the police constable being able to explain fully his actions.
Nawrot was given leave to sue the Hampshire police for compensation. The ratings by the Audit Commission said the record keeping by the Hampshire Force was poor in respect of the investigations into violent crime, criminal damage and domestic violence. Bosses also added that officers should meet monthly targets of five seat-belt offences, four mobile phone offences, eleven drink-drive offences and two commercial vehicle checks.
Hampshire Police said when asked about their anti-motorist purge - ' It is a minimum expectation of what we expect officers to be doing, we are not saying that at all costs someone must be arrested' said John Campbell. In recognition of his resignation the CPS and Police decided not to proceed with the case?
They were asked to produce match tickets in order to proceed along the public highway? He now has little wonder there are wrongful arrests and unsafe convictions, the thuggish behaviour by cops goes a long way to confirming this. The officer is accused of dangerous driving and making the capture and pursuit of the offenders 'personal' It was stated on a news item that an onboard camera in the patrol car showed the officer taking risks that were not within the authority granted his trial continues.
Evans was promptly arrested and held in a police cell at Alton in Hampshire. Kelly said when he was eventually released the cops advised him not to press charges against his attacker?? What followed was a blunder that led to his name being supplied to the offender, and he was subsequently attacked by a gang of supporters to the offender.
Later after purchasing a field, the man found a 'man trap' set on his property, but the police failed to respond to his calls. CCTV video footage was requested formally to Roger Trencher, solicitor to the Force, but it was not forthcoming, and they dealt with the issue of the coat by paying compensation. Deakin retired amid the inquiries, which were ongoing in , and it remains a mystery as to who at the police station walked off with property not belonging to them, and why no-one was interested in identifying the person who must have been on the station CCTV If they do know, they aren't saying!!
The Crabbe Affair The Force was said to have agreed to investigate its own handling of the case. It was said in court that she had committed the offences during In October a Report in the 'Police Specials' mentions that two female officers were arrested in Southampton -- one of them on suspicion of supplying class A drugs and perverting the course of justice.
Apparently, free speech and a citizens right to complain seems to have been dropped from The Human Rights Act in Fareham. It shows a very 'devious and suppressive' side to the Hampshire cops, which writer Mike Whitby agrees with. Galpin possibly an ex-cop of Fareham tells of a ludicrous dispute arising from casual remarks in a police canteen, which took two and a half years to resolve.
He says that 11 high ranking officers were involved, two police sergeants and eight constables The 43yr old former Southampton Special Cop was arrested by cops investigating incidents involving motorists being subjected to on-the-spot fines.
It is stated that officers apprehended him on New Years Eve and he was bailed to appear before Southampton Magistrates.
The Cop who was suspended by the Hampshire Police Force was charged with shoplifting and arrested on August the 3rd. It was said that the three Officers showed a complete lack of respect for their fellow officers.
They were found to have used demeaning language regularly and had done so for a long time, as this case started in , a year ago. The Chief Constable said that their behaviour and conduct was detestable Pulling something from the files, we found that a member of the Legal Profession complained about a police sergeant and said that he found their attitude insulting at the Havant Police Station.
The allegations were of a serious nature, but the University decided not to act on it, and neither did the Hampshire Police Now its been revealed that the man accused was found out and fired Amid something of a lock down on public exposure and a mystery forming, news came in on December the 11th , that there had been the arrest of six men on the Isle of Wight in Hampshire, and three of those turned out to be police officers. Julie Fry the Isle of Wight District Commander said the arrest of the three police officers were the result of a victim coming forward to complain about incidents that have been going on during Luty was arrested on his way home from Park Gate Police Station where he had been interviewing an officer who was the subject of a complaint.
She said she could smell alcohol on his breath during the interview, so she reported him to the station Officer, and Luty was followed home by cops who stopped him and arrested him. He later appeared before Aldershot Magistrates and was said to be twice over the limit when tested. It certainly does no favours for the beleaguered cops of Hampshire and only helps to show that things are going on they'd rather the public did not know.
Ex-Cop Aubry Hendy if actually true says he resigned after almost 18 years of service in the Hampshire Police He says he is now taking the Hampshire Police to Court. He also touches on Freemasonry in the force Citing a second case Citing a third case PS - We shall be watching this site and the Hampshire Cops reaction to this.
The shamed cop was to appear before magistrates and has been suspended. He ran off after being discovered by a citizen who grabbed his coat which yielded a bank statement with the officer's name on it. He was put on the sex offenders register. The disgraced cop had two commendations for his work in the police. He appeared before magistrates in Staines.
Another officer, un-named is also charged with keeping child porn images. They appeared before magistrates at Bury St. It was alleged that he performed sex acts in front of a web cam in close up for the girl and said he wanted sex. An investigation team seized his pc and found images of child porn with children as young as five. The Policeman appeared before Leeds Crown Court.
The Met cop was allowed to join despite the reference on his application form. A spokesperson said there must have been an oversight when the vetting system failed in this particular incident. The former cop was trapped in an Internet chat room sting.

The cop who won a medal in the police, is charged with indecent assault on a girl of 15 and another aged It is alleged that he used the police computer to contact two 12yr old girls in the USA, gather information on prostitutes, paedophiles and homosexuals, consort with a prostitute and exchanged photo images with with a fellow officer.
The officer who was stationed at Liverpool's Anne Street Station was suspended while further investigations took place. Unluckily for the constable, he was set upon by two other lads who came to the girls rescue. The officer stationed at Wanstead Police Station, London, refused to comment as he left the court. The Met Police said a resignation would be expected. Three young girls have accused him of sexual attacks that took place in the Tameside area of Manchester. Based in Eltham, South East london, the constable has been bailed pending an appearance at court.
The officer was actually involved in tapping the phone lines to catch offenders doing the same thing. He was convicted of making nine malicious phone calls. After 24 years in the force he faces dismissal.
He made a string of vile phone calls over the period of a year before being caught. A Cyber Cafe set up by cops at their Luton based station in Bedfordshire came to a halt as cops tried to hack into porn sites on the Internet. The computers were installed with ' no go ' barriers, but officers tried avoiding these by making attempts to get into the system by a back door method.
Cops carried out a further search in his home later, and found another The cop who is on duty in the house of commons is to face disciplinary action. The officer of the Met used a Porsche and two other expensive cars while running up gambling debts.
Page appeared before Southwark Crown Court along with his wife on charges of fraud, intimidation, and fraudulent trading besides threats to kill. It is said that many other cops are annoyed with the anti-corruption department. He was charged for perverting the course of justice. The owner reported items missing - power tools, a search was made of the Constable's home and his locker.
He was suspended pending other investigations. He forged signatures on claims of senior officers to get payments authorised. Taking trips to Florida and keeping expensive cars appealed to his greed to live in the luxury fast lane. He was identified out of 12 people the police wanted. He also faces a charge of misconduct in public office.
Therefore he was quite surprised to find a man inside the toilet suddenly offering to do things. Allen was manhandled and bundled into a police car and taken to the station. All the way to the police station Mr. Allen was told he could leave with a caution. Allen never went to Blackpool again after that. A man was cleared of making threats at Snaresbrook Crown Court, when Mr Natt produced a tape recorder and asked the judge if it could be played as this was his only defence against 'police lies'.
The Judge said he had no objection and on hearing it-- it revealed them abusing him. The Judge immediately disposed of the two charges brought by the Plaistow Police Station, those being threatening behaviour and assaulting a WPC The Court suggested Mr Natt pursue a civil case for damages using the deliberation of this case to support the claim.
The Police declined to comment as they left the court. He was charged with others of assault and murder of Mr. Lowe was with the City of London Police Force. The attack was unprovoked said witnesses at the scene. The drugs were found to be drugs used in evidence at another trial. Snaresbrook Crown Court sentenced the Officer to four months imprisonment. He stated that the he had found the drugs after another officer left them at a party?
He was caught by security cameras which showed him taking the drugs from evidence caches etc. Smith was allowed to resign and walked free from the court. The Police Officer bribed other detectives to assist him in drug dealing. Sadly for the cop and ex-cop it had all been recorded. The Old Bailey judge jailed him.
The four officers went berserk after seeing a two fingered gesture, and gave chase to the two occupants of a car. The officers were also accused of perjury along with occasioning actual bodily harm. The Met Officers invented a story and tried to have one man convicted, but an earlier jury dismissed the charges. He said the statements given by the officers in relation to the events contained some 'untruths'. The Met Police Commissioner accepted that the case was not handled properly and that several opportunities were missed which resulted in the attacker to go free and commit 29 more attacks.
