- Ritt Goldstein, who had led state and federal legislative efforts for police accountability legislation in the latter half of the 1990s, chaired a 1996 “police accountability” hearing in Connecticut’s legislature, and, who received “Humanitarian Asylum” in Sweden following severe police abuse in Connecticut.
