(iWIDK By Brittany Hahn) – What did Asians ever do to this cop?
New Jersey resident and Asian-American teenager Adam Kim, 17, was one of 14 people locked inside a police van for 15 hours without food, water, or a bathroom because he attended a loud house party in March of 2011.
The teens were locked inside the van and forced to huddle for warmth and relieve themselves in front of each other.
According to NBC News, the police man, Chief Thomas Ripoli, who did this to Kim and the other teens allegedly called them “chinks” and made dirty remarks about how the Korean girls at the party were dressed.
Ripoli was forced to retire on Monday at the mandatory age of 65, and refused to comment on what had happened that evening.
Kim, however, is suing the borough of Fort Lee, the Police Department, and over a dozen officers.
