The insanity continues, and evidently, no lessons were learned. Many Connecticut Police departments, however, are stepping up.

The world has, once again, proved our capacity for hate, evil, and devastating acts against one another. In light of the horror in Orlando this weekend, many Connecticut police departments are expressing their support in protecting the LGBTQ community.

In a story from, police all across Connecticut are increasing patrols in response to Orlando's mass shooting. More officers are stationed in public gathering places, nightclubs and LGBTQ venues.

New Haven Police Chief Dean Esserman told Eyewitness news,

 We're standing in solidarity with the LGBTQ community and our partners in policing.

Hartford police officials said they are working with federal partners to make sure the region is being monitored.

The horrific events came home to our state as well. According to, Kimberly Morris from Torrington had recently moved to Orlando and was working at the club where the murders occurred. May she rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers go out to not only Kimberly's family but to the families of everyone involved in the massacre in Orlando.
