Say it isn’t so. Another convicted felon with 31 arrests doing what he knows best, selling drugs and carrying an illegal firearm. Once again, what is GA14 doing besides nothing? Why is he not incarcerated? How many Malloy second chances has he had? Was he one of Malloy’s many early releases so it looks like less are incarcerated in CT? How many felony cases does it take to get locked up in CT? More proof that strict gun laws only hurt law abiding citizens. Convicted felons like this could care less, they will be carrying regardless of any law.

31 previous arrests? But his Momma says he's always been a good boy. Yeah, I do see he is 43 years old! Safe to say, he isn't going to turn things around. This perp needs to be removed from his circumstances.

Thank goodness he was apprehended safely and no police or bystanders got injured.

555 Albany Avenue and its surrounding area is again infested with drug dealers from all areas of the North End of the City. The creeps who used to use the Enfield Street area have gone to that area and expanded their operation. Felons with a 30 year history of bad acts and ruining the city. These characters "employ" dozens of equally bad people as drug runners and lookouts for
the dealers. A cottage industry and underground economy. Cars parked from QP cleaners and onto the sidewalk
blocking view of the illegal activity similar to the area of Edgewood and Albany.

Not a beat officer in sight and the illegal activity inured unabated. Marijuana smoked openly and seemingly everywhere.

The arrest of the convicted Felon Brown (felon is capitalized cause its his title) was great work and evident if daily work by HPD.

The problem however is that the crooks in that area operate the same way every day 24/7.

Lock them up.

Governor Malloy’s, Mayor Bronin’s and Chief Rovella’s soft on crime approach and criminal justice reform is destroying Hartford (and other cities), making cities like Hartford a very dangerous place.

Chris Lyons ,Sorry to appear insensitive to past victims of violence ,but instead of that time you spent on tv reporting cold cases, why not go back on tv and expose this real time mess that you seem to have a credible observation of? Your suggestions to combat this everyday criminal activity will surely be seen by all and just maybe those Hartford politicians/judges/prosecutors will respond with some action.All of those creeps ( politicians/judges/prosecutors and criminals) don’t like bright lights shined on them. Hope to see you back on the tube soon,
