6/13/2012-Violent Weekend in Hartford

Steve Harris

I don't know Steve Harris, but I know who he is. He's a former city councilman and a retired firefighter. He lives in the North End and he has questioned the Hartford police presence in high crime neighborhoods.

 

"I don't know if there are enough cops on the job, but there's more to community policing than a drive-by," he said. "When I see them standing on the street in my neighborhood, they're on a private-duty job." He's not happy with the police department's response to the shootings this weekend, noting that it was less than swift. "We need the folks charged with protecting us to tell us 'we're on it!'"

 

Thanks, Steve, for providing a punch line for my cartoon.
