Newtown first responder with PTSD facing termination

Nearly 11 months after a gunman killed 20 children and 6 adults at a Newtown, Connecticut, school, a police officer who responded to the massacre says he is still too traumatized by what he saw to go back to work.

His doctor says he's a victim of PTSD, but his bosses claim he's a liability who should be fired.
