Still No Justice For Richard Lapointe

Click here for my latest for CT News Junkie.

Is justice on the way for Richard Lapointe, the mentally disabled former dishwasher from Manchester who was brow beaten into confessing to a grisly crime he almost certainly had nothing to do with?

This sad case shows, more than any in recent memory, the power of law enforcement to obtain desired outcomes through questionable means. If the state doesn’t let Lapointe go right away, we can only hope the poor man is exonerated after his new trial.
