(Holyoke, MA)  —  City Councilors in Holyoke want to know if a local cop is getting preferential treatment.   Sargent John Hart misplaced two guns in two years and was only given brief suspensions.  At Tuesday’s Council meeting, Police Chief James Neiswanger endured a grilling.   Neiswanger refused to answer most questions in open session.  The councilors have asked for emails and other documents.  The discussion will continue behind closed doors.  In November, Hart left his service revolver in a restroom at the Holyoke Mall.  In 2011 the officer lost a sniper rifle.
