RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Four black parole officers who claimed their civil rights were violated when they were stopped by Ramapo police saw their case decimated in court last week, according to a report by lohud.com.
A federal judge ruled that police were within their legal rights to stop the plaintiffs’ car in Airmont but did not dismiss the parole officers' claims of excessive force and an inordinately long detention at the scene, the lohud.com story said.
The parole officers said they feared for their lives during the 2014 stop, which sprang from a 911 call about people in an unmarked car going into a house, lohud.com reported.
The officers had been trying to execute a warrant at that house but had not checked in with local police first, the lohud.com story said.
