They call it the “New Jersey Death Race” – luxury cars racing down the Garden State Parkway with an apparent police escort.
Now, New Jersey State Police have suspended a 25-year veteran and a 6-year-veteran for allegedly leading a group of sports cars in a race down the highway back on March 30.
“We will not tolerate any conduct by a member of the State Police that puts the public in jeopardy, as this unauthorized caravan had the potential to do,” Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa was quoted as saying in a news release. “We are thoroughly investigating this incident, and those responsible will face serious discipline. The mission of the New Jersey State Police is to ensure the safety and security of the people of New Jersey, and the overwhelming majority of troopers nobly and responsibly fulfill their duties. We will not let the acts of a few tarnish the entire force.”
