Special Report: Racism at State of Connecticut Agencies


Story by David Samuels from the NO SELLOUT blog

Last weekend a Black employee at the Department of Developmental Services in Torrington found a noose hanging in an office, when he reported to work. An internal investigation has been launched. The employee suspected of hanging the noose has been reassigned. The employee who discovered the noose will meet with the DDS CEO next week. I talked with the supervisor of the unit where the noose was found. The supervisor gave the employee instructions on safety measures to take, after he was told about the noose. We’re setting up a conference call with Republican Sen. Heather Somers to discuss next steps. Stay tuned for updates.
