Brattleboro Reformer

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.
