Sandy Hook (Newtown, Conn.) police chief turns his back on school massacre first responder.

In an effort to appease supporters of first Respond...er Thomas Bean, the Newtown Police Department has decided NOT to fire Officer Bean. While this sounds like a victory, in reality Officer Bean’s fight for long-term disability is far from over. In fact it may have become worse. Officer Bean still will NOT receive any long-term benefits.

Had Officer Bean been diagnosed with a physical injury rather than PTSD, his disability would be paid for the remainder of his career. The move by the Chief of Police is meant to hide the real truth -- they are refusing to recognize PTSD for what it is and denying care for those suffering from this very real disease. Please take a moment and call Chief of Police Michael Kehoe. Tell him you stand with Officer Bean and ask that he reverse his decision by covering Officer Bean’s long-term disability.

Call Chief of Police Michael Kehoe at (203)270-4255 to demand that he recognize PTSD and pay long-term disability for Officer Bean. *Please note this is a NON-Emergency Number.
