Description

A Star-Ledger investigation of the claim that State Troopers practiced racial profiling --" stopping vehicles solely because their drivers were black or Hispanic" -- revealed that 75 percent of New Jersey Turnpike arrests were of minorities. While state authorities downplayed this statistic, the Star-Ledger discovered a number of other statistics and individual stories that pointed to racism among the troopers.
