He was pulled over for speeding.
A New York rabbi is left traumatized after he was pulled over by the cops and pummelled to the ground on a remote Vermont Interstate. He was suspected of speeding and was forced to the ground at gunpoint along with his wife and two sons.
Yehuda Fink, the son of Rabbi Berl Fink, said Monday that his parents and teenage brother and sister thought they were targets of a terrorist attack during the late-night August 8 stop.
‘We’re talking about normal people. What in the world are you doing to them? It’s out of hand. This shouldn’t have happened in any state in the United States of America,’ Yehuda, 29, said.
Rabbi Berl Fink, of Brooklyn,New York, was cited for attempting to elude police after traveling more than four miles before pulling over. Fink says that he did not know that he was being pulled over, but when he did realize this, he tried to find a safe spot to do so and ended up at the spot where the rest of the situation took place.
After the car pulled over, police dashboard video shows, the trooper shouted from his cruiser for driver Rabbi Berl Fink to get out and walk backward with his hands up.
Vermont State Trooper Justin, who was holding a gun, ordered him to lie on the ground.
Thompson decided to initiate a ‘high-risk motor vehicle stop’ because he was in a rural area late at night with no immediate backup nearby, the vehicle had failed to stop, the occupants’ actions were suspicious and the vehicle had been speeding, according to the investigation said.
In such a stop, officers are trained to order the driver and passengers out of the vehicle and to have their guns drawn
During the stop, another of the Rabbi’s son, Rabbi Eli Fink tried to get out of the vehicle, but Thompson ordered him to stay inside.

Right now across the nation, Football Players are taking knees during the national anthem playing to protest police brutality against unarmed African Americans. This current issue is something that Donald Trump speaks out against, more often than the opioid plague that is ripping what used to be the majority. After Trump’s recent attack on NFL Players Colin Kaepernick and Steph Curry, the internet and their family members came in support of the men. Now a higher power over these men’s heads are speaking up and those were the team owners.
A slew of NFL team owners — including several million-dollar donors to President Trump — blasted the commander-in-chief Sunday for bashing their players’ anti-racism protests.
The owners’ defiance was surprisingly led by New England Patriots boss Robert Kraft, typically a Trump loyalist, who said he couldn’t stand by while the president labeled any player who kneels during the national anthem a “son of a bitch.” Continue reading
