EAST HAVEN — How big is East Haven’s latest black eye in the police scandal involving alleged profiling and abuse of Hispanic residents?

Big enough to reach Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Alaska, Hawaii, Taiwan and Great Britain, to name but a few places.

An Associated Press story on the FBI criminal probe and U.S. Department of Justice civil rights investigations into the allegations came out Sunday.

It contained some of the same allegations that have surfaced previously, but also suggested members of the Latino community are leaving in droves, possibly up to half the estimated 1,900 Hispanics that the U.S. Census Bureau says live in town.

The story suggests the police have driven them out.
