Malloy: East Haven mayor's comments were 'repugnant'

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today released the following statement in reaction to the racially insensitive comments by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo:
“The comments by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo are repugnant. They represent either a horrible lack of judgment or worse, an underlying insensitivity to our Latino community that is unacceptable. Being tired is no excuse. He owes an apology to the community, and more importantly, he needs to show what he’s going to do to repair the damage he’s done. And he needs to do it today.”
As Register reporter Susan Misur reported, Maturo, when asked what he would do for the Latino community in the wake of East Haven's racial profiling scandal, said “I might have tacos when I go home. I’m not quite sure yet.”

What did the register expect for the mayor to say? I will represent the entire community. I wonder how he continues to hold his position after making such an inflammatory, racist and ignorant remark.

He is part of the problem and he is giving us Italians a bad name.. He needs to be ousted.... We Italians and many other were also immigrants and him and those disgraced officers seem to forget that....

Wow, Malloy must be looking for votes already. I am getting so tired of this whole idiotic issue. And to ask a dumb question like "What are you going to do for the Latino Community?" Is the Mayor supposed to give them the key to the Town or give them City Hall. What a stupid, mindless question, but of course, it was coming from a reporter that just had to ask something.

Malloy is speaking from Switzerland,a place 99.9 % of state residents will never be able to visit,because we don't have the UCONN Foundation picking up the tab.
What hasn't been reported is -is crime down in East Haven because of the increased stops ? How big is the Latino community in East haven ? How many are here illegally ?
