Zullo v. Vermont
Supreme Court of Vermont; Case No. Docket No. 2017-284
On appeal from Rutland Superior Court Docket No. 555-9-14 Rdcv
Expanding police discretion would exacerbate the racial inequities entrenched in Vermont's criminal justice system in general, and its traffic enforcement practices in particular. Implicit racial bias impacts police office behavior and perceptions of what constitutes criminal behavior.
