In Connecticut, the police chief of East Haven has resigned, days after the arrest of four police officers accused of tyrannizing Latinos.
More than 15,000 people signed an online petition calling on East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr., to replace the police chief.
It was organized by the same organization that sent tacos to the mayor because of this remark.
