About one hundred people gathered to to protest the reassignment of Bridgeport Police Officer Lieutenant David Daniels III today outside the Magaret E. Morton Government Center (formerly City Hall Annex) from the head of the Community Services Division to  Lieutenant in charge of  the midnight patrol, his reassignment starts on Monday.   DoingItLocal.com broke the story Saturday morning when rally organizer Eneida Martinez-Walker posted on our Facebook wall about this rally.  She told us that she hopes that the mayor and chief reconsider the lieutenant’s reassignment.   Speaker after speaker got up and told how Dave Daniels had been there for the community and it was time the community come together for Dave Daniels.  Daniels told us that the union has filed a grievance on his behalf.  Daniels said he wasn’t certain why he was removed from his role and that he “has no problem going back to patrol, I’m a Bridgeport Police officer and I will serve until my 25 years are complete”.  That will be in October of 2013.
