Newtown police officer first on Sandy Hook scene faces firing 07 Nov 2013 Newtown officials have notified a police officer who hasn’t returned to work since responding to the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that he could be fired. Thomas Bean, a 12-year veteran, submitted a two-sentence letter from his doctor indicating that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the horrific scene he encountered inside the school. Bean, who was off duty on Dec. 14, responded to the school and entered at least one of the classrooms where children were killed. In a June letter to Bean, Chief Michael Kehoe wrote that he received notice that Bean is “100 percent permanently disabled from performing the essential functions of your job as a police officer.” [See also: Letter from Newtown’s Police Chief to Officer Bean.]
