DescriptionWhen Diaz asked Maturo what he planned to do for the Latino community in response to the arrests of four East Haven police officers on federal charges that they discriminated against Latino residents and others, Maturo said, "I might have tacos when I go home. I'm not quite sure yet."

He later apologized, saying it was his 12th or 13th interview of the day. He said he meant no harm by what he called a "flippant" remark. He went on to say that there were a lot "bigger things that we should be concerned about than that type of remark."

"If it harmed anybody or hurt anybody, I apologize," Maturo said. "Yeah, it's probably a little insensitive, but it was late in the day."
