Question about carrying a firearm in the state of Connecticut. Due to the state not being a "Stop & ID" state does Terry v. Ohio, Prouse v. Deleware, Brown v. Texas & Deberry v. US still hold true? I have heard that police here love to threaten legal gun carriers with arrest for "Breach of Peace". Thank you.

5 girls came to my house to fight, so they trespassed on my PRIVATE property, I was in MY yard and was yelling for them to leave, several NO TRESPASSING signs were visibly posted, and they wouldnt leave. So the cops came and I was still yelling for them to leave as im still on MY PRIVATE property, not jn the streeton my property. So the cop issued me a ticket for breach of peace while I'm on my property. I wasnt in a public place. And the 5 girls DID NOT get a ticket nor did they get arrested. I went to court and pleaded not guilty and had to pay a fine of 90 dollars. Heres my questions. 1) is it legal for the cop to NOT issue these girls tickets when I simply told the cop I wanted them to be issued a ticket for trespassing on my private property? 2) is it legal for this cop to issue me a ticket for breach of peace when I was on my own property? 3) if it was wrong for the cop to issue me a ticket for breach of peace, can I sue for wrongful charges?
