Previously, his suit against Connecticut State Police was thrown out of court. You can read about it here.
Krayeske's suit did compel former Governor Rell to sit for a taped deposition in Florida relating to the matter.
Krayeske's legal team thought Rell's taped statements proved she did not view Krayeske as a threat when he approached her.It isn't very surprising, but still troubling. The cops basically admitted to having a list of people they were to arrest on sight, regardless of any lack of provocation.
"But the jury bought the (Hartford police department's) public safety argument, the post-9/11 argument," Krayeske said. "If this is the country people want, expect more stories like this ... If it happens to someone who's less resourceful, they'll get squished."
Fortunately, we have a Democrat with a healthy respect for the law now residing in the governor's mansion, so I'm sure we won't have to worry about any "secret lists" going around.
I know I'll sleep easier.
