NBC Connecticut and The News-Times of Danbury are reporting that a Newtown police lieutenant, George Sinko, has been reprimanded for how he responded on the morning of the Sandy Hook School shooting, Dec. 14, 2012.
The NBC report said Sinko was directing traffic at a construction site when the 911 call came in, that he stayed at the site and then stopped at the police department on the way to the school, getting there more than an hour after Adam Lanza shot his way into the school and killed 20 young students and six staff members.
