Sandy Hook: Newtown Police Union suing Newtown police chief
"NEWTOWN -- The head of the Newtown Police Union [Scott Ruszczyk] is suing Chief Michael Kehoe over defamatory comments he claims the chief made in the wake of an embezzlement scandal that rocked the union and the department three years ago."

Scott Ruszcyk and the Newtown Police Union are also defending Sandy Hook first responder NPD officer Thomas Beane's attempts to receive adequate compensation for PTSD-related employment termination.

The Newtown Police Union is also considering a vote of no confidence against Chief Kehoe in the strange case of officer George Sinko, who despite taking two hours to respond to the Sandy Hook School shootings, received only a written reprimand from Chief Kehoe.

"...officers believe the disciplinary action would have been more severe were Sinko not friends with the chief and Capt. Joseph Rios, who conducted the internal affairs investigation.

"People want to vomit," one officer said."

Exploring this tension between the Newtown police union and Newtown police leaders--a situation possibly mirrored in the CT State Police--may shed light on the real events of 12/14/12.

"Kehoe declined to comment to NBC News about [Bean's] case.

Eric Brown, attorney for the Newtown Police Union, said Bean has very few options. If he retires early, he would only be eligible for reduced benefits. Bean is not eligible for disability retirement, and resigning from the police force would leave him financially destitute, he said.

“There were three very bad options,” Brown said. “And the fourth option, which is the one the town should be pursuing, is to provide him with a disability benefit until his normal retirement date, just like they agreed to in the collective bargaining agreement.”

Bean said he believes other police officers who have returned to work would like to file disability claims, too, but fear the repercussions of speaking up.

“I believe some of them are afraid of what’s going on, so now they can’t take care of themselves, because they’re too worried about the financial, which is a huge burden,” he said."

Note: "Bean said he believes other police officers who have returned to work would like to file disability claims, too, but fear the repercussions of speaking up.

“I believe some of them are afraid of what’s going on..."

What does he mean by "...what's going on?"
