i wonder what the political economy of East Haven is like. here a few
towns over Latinos are fairly well integrated into the entry level
economy. but that doesnt deter local police from selectively doing the
traffic stops, usually with several cop cars lined up in a row like
there is a regular Bonnie and Clyde on the loose. I cant see this going
too far in Southwestern CT, since too many rich people need their lawns
manicured. But East Haven i think is struggling financially.
