- A man has been set free two decades after his conviction after the Connecticut Innocence Project used DNA evidence to show that he had not committed the crime he was accused of. Said Rep. Mike Lawlor (D-East Haven), co-chair of the Judiciary Committee:
This is yet another Connecticut example of an innocent person having spent two decades in prison for a very serious crime while an actual rapist and murderer has been roaming free since 1986. This is not acceptable. The legislature, working with the Advisory Commission on Wrongful Convictions, must determine whether any state laws need to change and whether the law enforcement community is using best practices in the investigation of cases in order to avoid wrongful arrests and convictions.
- Apparently a shooting range in Connecticut was a terror training ground. Yikes.
- ConnecticutMan captures a small number of anti-Dodd activists who think that suggesting Sen. Dodd drink liquor with painkillers to “cure” his cancer is funny and cute. It isn’t.
- The National Journal has released its Senate race rankings. Guess who’s sitting right on top?
- Caregivers and their allies gathered yesterday to protest the closing or privatization of group homes. Dan Malloy weighed in on nonprofit cuts, as well: he is not amused.
What else is going on?
