From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
Following an unprecedented investigation, 17 Bridgeport police officers are facing discipline–nine could be fired–after the city’s Office of Internal Affairs found they lied on official reports and violated regulations in a 2017 incident where cops broke up a party on Colorado Avenue.
Two other officers investigated for their involvement that night have since killed themselves, including Sgt. Mark Belinkie, a 19-year-veteran who was found dead in his Milford home on Saturday, Police Chief Armando Perez confirmed.
“(Belinkie) told me he was concerned about Colorado (Avenue), about going before the Police Commission; it takes its toll on police officers, having this hang over their heads for so long,” Perez said.
But the chief continued that he did not know what led Belinkie to shoot himself.
