A Borough Park rabbi was held at gunpoint and treated like a common “criminal” by a Vermont state trooper, NY POST reports.
Rabbi Berl Fink was driving along I-91 north near Fairlee, Vermont, when Trooper Justin Thompson ordered him out of his 2004 Toyota Camry at gunpoint around 11:30 p.m..
Thompson then allegedly pushed Berl to the ground, handcuffed him and frisked him for weapons, while the rest of the kin — including the couple’s 16-year-old daughter and 19-year-old son — were also told to get out of the vehicle and handcuffed.
The family is threatening to sue the Vermont State Police for civil rights violations. A spokesman for the Vermont State Police said it would investigate. Read more at NY POST.
