Understand the issue and realize the court ruling does not mean she didn't do it..

clickQualified Immunity is a doctrine in U.S. federal law that arises in cases brought against state officials under 42 U.S.C Section 1983 and against federal officials under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents, 403 U.S. 388 (1971).
Qualified immunity
, when applicable, shields government officials from liability for the violation of an individual's federal constitutional rights. This grant of immunity is available to state or federal employees performing discretionary functions where their actions, even if later found to be unlawful, did not violate "clearly established law".

Subject: FW: Outstanding Policing and Community Efforts

I would like to recognize the outstanding and efficient professional efforts of the New London Police Department for the investigation and identification of the person responsible for last weeks tragic, hit and run fatallity, on route 32 in front of Connecticut College. The efforts of the first arriving officers and investigative personnel were significant and effective, however, the investigation was greatly enhanced by the extra efforts of Sergeant Kevin McBride, all involved personnel are recognized for the determination, care and commitment to safety in the City of New London.

Also recognized for outstanding community efforts are police department personnel, Brenda Flemming, Officer Max Bertsch, the Police Union and other members of the New London Police department for their significant and committed efforts in the "Adopt-A-Family" holiday program. Many become accustomed to dealing with the police in negative moments in their lives, it is critical and quite impressive for the police to proactively show and display such a caring and empathetic attitude in this community.

Please share these incidents of city workers going above and beyond and ensure my office is advised of the many other exceptional, efforts, taking place by our empolyees in your area of responsibility.

New London council’s committee pick not without controversy

Union questions Councilor Dominguez and Nolans vote
and praises Councilor Tranchida fo wanting to wait.


“Now you’re appointing someone who had a pending complaint against a police officer,” Lynch said. “I wouldn’t want someone who thinks police are never wrong either, but this committee now does nothing but drive a wedge between the community and the police department.”



Labor in the news


“There’s clearly budgetary problems. We know that,” said Sal Luciano, executive director of Council 4 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents 16,000 of the state’s 40,000 unionized employees.

Labor blunter in its criticism of Malloy administration

Luciano faulted the administration for failing to inform legislators a year ago when it became clear that federal funding for the jobs centers, some of it geared to jobless rates, was drying up as the state's economy improved.
