Conn. mayor: I deserved criticism for taco quip
EAST HAVEN, Conn. -- The mayor of a Connecticut town who has been criticized for his quip about eating tacos in response to an anti-Latino bias investigation says he brought the criticism on himself.
He said on Sunday that he wants to move on from the comment.
Four East Haven officers are accused of depriving Latinos of their rights in a pattern of harassment, intimidation and unlawful searches. They face federal charges.
Maturo says East Haven is not a biased community.
He stops short of defending its police against the federal allegations, though.
He says he's awaiting more information from investigators.
