Who wants tacos? Embattled East Haven, Conn. police chief quits; mayor pressured to do same

A powder-keg of racial intolerance: In a move that looked likely for a solid week, East Haven, Conn. Police Chief Len Gallo (left), who oversaw a police force accused of profiling and detaining Latinos in the community without cause, has resigned from his position effective immediately. Expect the move to add extra pressure to his boss, Mayor Joseph Maturo (right), especially in the wake of the comments he made to a TV reporter last week regarding how he “might have tacos” as a form of outreach to the Latino community, leading to the Hartford Courant’s editorial board calling him an “idiot” — a word not bandied around editorial boards that often. A Latino group is asking Maturo to resign already.
