Hartford Courant

HARTFORD, Conn. — About 75 Hartford police officers, joined by colleagues from Bristol, Manchester and the state police, rallied in front of Hartford Superior Court this morning where a Hartford man accused of shooting a Hartford officer made his second appearance before a judge.

The purpose of the rally, and a press conference by police union leaders, was to call for tougher penalties for those who assault police officers. The shooting Nov. 12 of Hartford Officer Michael Bodner, and comments by someone of his friends and relatives attempting to justify the shooting, drew the officers together this morning. The murder Sunday of four officers near Seattle, Wash., underscored the danger officers face each day.
