Vt. trooper in video correct to detain immigrants
Detaining two farm workers as suspected illegal immigrants was without bias, a group found
MONTPELIER, Vt. — An advisory group has found that a Vermont state trooper acted properly and without bias when he made a traffic stop and questioned and detained two farm workers as suspected illegal immigrants.
The Sept. 13 stop in Middlesex and a subsequent protest prompted Gov. Peter Shumlin to ask whether Vermont State Police followed "bias-free" policing policies in the stop.
