It Is Not Always Good To Be The First.
Have you ever heard of a state employee being fired here in Connecticut? It never happens, until last week, Cornell Lewis a 6 year employee of the Dept. of Children and Families was fired over an “incident” , he was looking at his computer along with two other employees,while a child was injured, according to the Hartford Courant. Cornell has been an activist in Hartford , leading the “Men of Color” campaign against urban violence. Oh, and did I mention he has been very critical of the Dept. of Children and Families. Do you think it could be a coincidence that he has criticized his Department and he is probably the only state employee to be fired from that Department in state history ? And were the other two state employees fired? Of course not. Retaliation? Violation of freedom of speech?Discrimination? Or just plain old Malloy Supremacy intimidation that happens every day? Tune in today at 3:00 we will have Cornell Lewis in studio.
