SUSPECT ARRESTED IN FRONT STREET SHOOTOUT – Commentary

Sharing is Caring so Please Share on Your Social Networks:

Another Hartford young man arrested for illegally possessing a gun after a shooting.

I have some questions and comments as a result of Kevin’s May 7th article. What I do love about We the People Hartford site is that regardless of what side of an issue Kevin does make you think about what is happening around us.

Unlike the “so called professional journalists”, he both listens to the public that are giving tips or their own commentary. Kevin also discusses his findings with those who are commenting.

That’s one thing that is great about Citizen Journalism, the majority of them are down to earth people and more than willing to talk to and with their readers.

Another great thing about Citizen Journalists is that many of them tend to have the breaking news that the “professionals” won’t bother to look into or cover for various reasons.

That being said I disagree with the title of the article in that a “Shoot Out” requires at least 2 people shooting, but there was only one person illegally armed and shooting at a defenseless car and an unarmed woman the way that Kevin’s article reads. So the title should have been “Suspect Arrested for Front Street Shooting”.

Thankfully the young woman who was the target of this young man’s anger was not another fatality for the crime stats of Hartford. I do wonder whose house was this gun found at? Was that person the Legal Owner of that gun or was that person also in possession of a gun illegally?

I am for people having the choice to exercise their right to self-defense and protecting their family from harm but it’s angry young men like this that create problems for LEGALLY Trained, Permitted & Armed people.

Why did he decide that it was ok to try to shoot (only 7 of 12 shots hit that huge target?) a car because he was angry with the driver?

What does that say about our society and community; where a person can grow up thinking that it is ok to escalate a verbal argument into threatening a life and destruction of property?

How much worse is it going to get with so many police officers retiring in Hartford? Will there be an increase in the gang-related shootings and crimes in our cities?

This young man was wrong in what he did; but was he carrying the illegal gun because he was unable to afford to get a gun legally? I do not know anything about this young man so I do not know;  would he have been able (prior to this incident) to attempt to get the training that is part of the requirements to obtain a pistol permit?

What can be done to make our cities safer for the citizens that live there? Our police and fire departments are understaffed with more about to retire. Will more citizens be arming themselves illegally because the powers that be have made the basic human right to self-defense out of reach for the poor, blacks and minorities in our state?

How is the pending Bankruptcy going to affect the police and firemen and public safety for the people in Hartford?

Those are just a few of the questions and thoughts that Kevin’s article and the public comments have sparked for me…

What are your thoughts and questions?

Hartford Police officers were dispatched to 24 Front Street this morning on the report of shots fired.

Upon HPD’s arrival, officers located a 2010 Ford Fusion with multiple bullet holes in it parked at the entrance to the Front Street parking garage. The victim detailed to officers that she had been involved in an argument with here “friends” boyfriend. The boyfriend removed a firearm from his waistband and fired 12 rounds at her vehicle. He apparently needs to spend more time at the range,  since only 7 of the 12 rounds actually struck the vehicle.

Based upon the victims information , the suspect was identified and HPD contacted him. The suspect and his girlfriend agreed to return to the scene where HPD conducted a felony motor vehicle stop and the suspect was placed under arrest.

The suspect, identified as Austin Treadwell, 28, of 20 Front Street, Apt 318 was arrested and charged with numerous charges, including carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, Reckless endangerment 1st degree, Weapons in a Motor vehicle, Criminal Possession of a high capacity magazine, Criminal Mischief 1st Degree.

Treadwell had apparently disposed of the weapon, a 40 caliber pistol in East Hartford before returning to the scene. The weapon was recovered through the efforts of HPD.

DON’T GET RIPPED OFF BY MDC IMPOSTERS

Sharing is Caring so Please Share on Your Social Networks:

This warning has been given out back in November by me but this warning post from Kevin Brookman is worthy of a share because he actually has the press release in the article that he posted; in addition to his always worthy of a read even if you do not agree with him commentary.

There were 2 Reader comments plus his own reply that should get people asking some questions about our water bills….

Who are the people that are connected to the reasons why our water bills are going up higher than ever while their corporate buddies are getting a sweetheart deal at our expense….

Head on over to We the People Hartford by clicking the “Go to Source” link below & join in on the conversations…. –

MDC WARNS OF SUSPECTED IMPOSTERS
November 30, 2016
For Immediate Release
HARTFORD  The Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) is advising customers to be cautious of an individual posing as a water company employee in an attempt to enter residential homes.
On Tuesday, November 29, a male suspect claiming to be from the water company attempted to gain access to several Hartford apartments in the vicinity of James Street, telling the residents there was a problem with their water bill. No further details are available at this time.
The MDC urges all residents, especially those who are home during the day, to be alert for imposters by following these tips:
  • MDC field employees wear clothing and drive vehicles clearly marked with the MDC logo.
  • The MDC encourages customers to stay secure within the home while asking for identification from anyone who comes to their door.  All MDC employees have photo identification badges and will gladly display them upon request.  The policy is “No Identification – No Entry” .
  • If someone comes to your door claiming to be from the water company and you do not have a previously scheduled appointmentdo not allow access to your home until calling the MDC Command Center at 860-278-7850 ext 3600 to verify their identity.
  • If you have any doubt about the individual’s identity or motives, or authenticity of their credentials, do not allow them entry into your home and call the police.
 
Maybe the next step should be to distribute a flyer of MDC Chairman Bill diBella and the MDC Commissioners to our suburban neighbors. The MDC’s plan to shove Hartford’s debt off onto member towns will cost residents more than any imposters ever could.

Mom Endorses Partnership

Sharing is Caring so Please Share on Your Social Networks:

There are many educational options that are available to those with money but for those in the lower income brackets & higher family expenses there are few options…

If we stop pouring money into the failing public school system & instead focus upon the needs of the students rather than the wants of the public school administrators & teachers unions then positive changes will begin to happen; both in the public schools as they are forced to compete for the students as well for our families & children & our nation as a whole

Better Educated Students (rather than Indoctrinated & Socially Promoted Students) are able to make wiser decisions. They are able to either find work or create their own jobs by going into business for themselves.

With the recent court ruling; ordering CT to fix the problem of the funding of the schools & the disparity of the education offered throughout CT, by having the money follow the students parents will be able to choose the best educational options for their children. What is “Best” for our children many times does not coincide with what is “Best” for the Teachers Union or the promoters of the Common Core materials or what is “Best” for the Testing Companies – all of whom are looking out only for their “Best Interests” which to them are their taxpayer funded Paychecks.

FreedomProject Academy’s Academic Director, Dr. Duke Pesta, was recently doing a radio interview when a parent called to talk about the amazing education her son was receiving from Grace Christian Academy, and online private school partner FreedomProject Academy.

Problematic Hartford Commissions

Sharing is Caring so Please Share on Your Social Networks:

This video is only addressing one of the many commissions which are currently not properly “staffed” so that they can meet & do their jobs… the big question is why is this being allowed to happen?

 

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

There is a serious problem going on down at Hartford’s Town Hall.
There are many commissions that do not have the full number of people that are mandated to have citizens of Hartford sitting on them.
When the new mayor took over he forced out prior to having replacements many of the republican commissioners. The question is WHY did he do that?
#BrokeBronin basically got rid of anyone who might oppose the plans that he & his wife have for Hartford taxpayers.
Meanwhile the citizens of Hartford are in fact suffering while the commissions like the Civilian Police Review Board do not meet in a Proper & Timely Manner
Below is a report by Rachel Baird of a recent trip to Hartford only to discover that the Commission Meeting had been cancelled because ONE person on the board was sick & unable to attend.
There are supposed to be 9 people on the board with a minimum of FIVE (5) people in attendance but ONLY 5 people are currently sitting on the board!
There are FOUR (4) Missing Commissioners because #BrokeBronin is refusing to allow the correct number of people to be appointed on to it!

 

Are the people living in Hartford aware of this problem?
If they are why are they not demanding that these seats be filled with people from the community?
Have they been demanding that these seats be filled only to fall on the deaf ears of the mayor & his wife?

Where are the former commission members from all of the commissions that were removed & until their replacements are properly installed?

They need to be back in place; this is why there is so much corruption going on in city hall, there is intentional dysfunction of the process.

SB422 Keep CT Water in CT_v2

Sharing is Caring so Please Share on Your Social Networks:

Reminder that we were kept in the dark about the deal & had no voice when they sold off our water rights with our permission or even knowledge & at the time the resevoir was only at 85% & a slight drought & with the lack of rain the entire state is in a drought…

#RememberOnElectionDay who has sold us out

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

Just a reminder of what is happening in our government at both the town level & state…


CT Our Water is about to be Stolen.
Men & Women have conspired to give our water away at bargain basement prices to a corporation while raising our rates & risking running our wells dry.
