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.

Hillary Clinton’s Clone
After taking the life of one and devastating the others and not getting charged there has to be some sort of resentment behind your actions. If it isn’t then it doesn’t shock me because most officers and vigilantes (Side note: White Folk) don’t care if they murder a black man. Shelby walked off scott free back in May after killing unarmed father, Terence Crutcher during a traffic stop and has since been working at a comfy desk job. Shelby says that’s still not good enough for her. Now it looks like she’s ready to kick her feet up and collect her pension?
“Since being reinstated, I have found that sitting behind a desk, isolated from all my fellow officers and the citizens of Tulsa, is just not for me,” Shelby wrote in a statement released by a local police union.
“As I have stated before, the incident with Terence Crutcher was a tragedy for everyone involved, and I am sorry he lost his life,” she wrote. “I pray for healing for his family, I will continue to pray for the unity of our community, the safety of our citizens and our police officers.”
Is what she said to CNN
Shelby is set to resign on August 3,2017.
