On Thursday, Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra asked Governor Dannel Malloy for more state detectives, inspectors, and other manpower to help him deal with the current spike in violent crime and deaths in the city.
"This is literally a public safety issue and I respectfully ask for an expedited response," Segarra wrote.
On Friday, Malloy wrote back. And he's not giving Segarra what he wants. Not yet, at least.
