The State Veterans' Home in Connecticut is allowing in people with criminal backgrounds, posing a possible danger to residents and employees in the home. WFSB investigates, and finds the Commissioner of the state Department of Veterans' Affairs unwilling to admit there is an issue. The Commissioner said the number of people with criminal backgrounds in the home was in single digits, while WFSB-TV found it was three times that many. There are 500 residents on the house, and often only two unarmed guards patrolling the premises. In addition, the Commissioner only consented to a timed, five-minute interview regarding the issue.
