Connecticut State Senate President Martin Looney and New Haven Mayor Toni Harp want to start taxing money made by Yale’s endowment.

In New Haven, Connecticut, protests have started again in response to the city's handling of a video showing a police officer using force against a 15-year-old girl at the city's St. Patrick's Day Parade. But this time, two sides are protesting- those who support the officer, and those calling for more scrutiny of his actions.

At a city hall press conference Friday, Chief Dean Esserman said Officer Joshua Smereczynsky would be returned to active duty after an internal investigation exonerated him.

New Haven Mayor Toni Harp says an officer seen in a video forcibly arresting a 15-year-old girl would be removed from active duty. The video appears to show the officer slamming the girl onto the street after an altercation during the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Protesters say she suffered a fractured shoulder and facial bruises.

“I’m happy,” said organizer Barbara Fair. "I am happy. He is off the street. That’s our first demand that we wanted to happen, and it’s happened.”
