Community Party Radio on So-Metro Radio

Community Party Radio on So-Metro Radio returns Tuesday, March 7. Commentary on urban issues from a grassroots perspective. Guest contributor John Hollis joins us for a discussion about Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy’s state budget proposal, which attacks the working class, the poor and human services providers. Malloy’s budget includes closing Blue Hills Substance Abuse Services in Hartford’s North End, an area plagued by opioid addiction. We will also replay our 2016 interview with Hartford Civilian Police Review Board member Rick Torres.  Mayor Luke Bronin introduced a resolution to replace Torres and three other Board members, in retaliation for asking inconvenient questions regarding the Emilio Diaz brutality case. Torres and the Board asked for the names of the 19 Hartford Police officers who refused to cooperate with the investigation of former HPD Sgt. Sean Spell, who was caught on video kicking Diaz in the head following a June 4 car chase. Enhanced video shows that four other HPD officers stomped Diaz, but Spell is the only officer who has been criminally charged. 8:00 PM Eastern Time 7:00 PM Central 5:00 PM Pacific.  http://www.sometroradio.com/
