Two NJSP Troopers suspended over 'Death Race' escort

The so called 'Death Race' New Jersey State Police escortgate has led to the suspension of two NJSP troopers:

Sgt. 1st Class (and 25 year NJSP veteran) Nadir Nassry, 47, of Phillipsburg, an assistant station commander at the Totowa substation, and Trooper Joseph Ventrella (6 years in), 28, of Bloomingdale, assigned to a tactical patrol unit, were both suspended.

The commander of the Totowa substation was "transferred until more information about his involvement could be determined," the Attorney General’s Office said.

“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 Chiesa said in a statement. He added that those responsible “will face serious discipline.”
