What is going on in New Jersey?
With recent controversies involving police officers, many states have been shining more of a light on the actions of their boys in blue, but what New Jersey has been uncovering seems downright shocking.
Many of the events that have made news headlines have been tragic, causing uproars on either side of the blue line, but two New Jersey cops have been accused of something that just makes your skin crawl.
Not one, but two different officers, in completely unrelated investigations, have been charged with pulling women over for their phone numbers.
The first arrest happened earlier this year when 37-year-old Marquice Prather was charged with tampering records. The veteran cop had been lying about the genders of the people he tickets, sabatoguing police recording equipment and falsifying case reports.
The department began investigating Prather after several women came forward alleging that they had been unjustly pulled over, and then asked for their contact information. Prather had promised to tear up the ticket if they agreed to go on a date.
After further investigation the department found more women who had been ticketed and forced to pay after refusing to go out with the officer.
He's been suspended without pay while he awaits trial.
Shockingly, pulling over women for a date isn't actually a crime, which is why the only thing they can charge Prather with is record tampering.
