FBI arrests 4 Conn. police; racial profiling against Latinos charged

"The FBI arrested four police officers just before dawn Tuesday morning, alleging a conspiracy that one official called “a cancerous cadre” of “bullies with badges” to deprive some residents, particularly Latinos, of their constitutional rights.  The four officers were Sgt. John Miller, Dennis Spaulding, David Cari and Jason Zullo, according to an indictment released by the office of U.S. Attorney David B. Fein.  The indictment paints a devastating picture of alleged abuses, listing more than 30 “overt acts” committed to further the alleged conspiracy.  It also suggests that the conspiracy may have risen to the top of the department." - New Haven Register, Jan. 24, 2012.
