Collision Course


The fatal police shooting of Anthony Jose "Chulo" Vega Cruz after a traffic stop in Wethersfield, Connecticut, gained national attention - from the incident itself, to the protests that followed, to the investigation. It also refocused attention on this one Hartford suburb's practice of pulling over black and brown drivers at disproportionately higher rates when compared to whites.
