A Vermont state police trooper who pursued and pulled over a speeding New York City rabbi and ordered him at gunpoint to lie on the ground and then with other police handcuffed the rabbi's family has been cleared of wrongdoing.
Sarah Fink told the New York Post the ordeal was “traumatizing.”
“I tell you, there was brutality,” she said. “He was pointing guns.”
