Conn. Rep. Rosario Claims Profiling By Police
A Connecticut lawmaker claims he was profiled by a police officer while on his way to a friend’s funeral this week.
Hearst Connecticut Media reports State Representative Chris Rosario of Bridgeport was stopped by police and was investigated for a stolen license plate on his vehicle.
Rosario says his plate clearly states “Deputy Speaker.”
City officials blamed it all on inaccurate information from another town’s police.
Rosario wants an apology from the police and wants to know why the officer ran a check on his license plate in the first place.
