Critics criticized former Attorney General (and former Associate Justice) Peter G. Verniero for complicity in condoning the practice of racial profiling during the Governor Christie Todd Whitman years.
The New York Times wrote about it in 2000.
[Then] Rev. Reginald T. Jackson, executive director of the Black Ministers Council of New Jersey, said that Justice Verniero does need to answer questions about his handling of the troopers’ indictments. He said he would ask Justice Verniero in a letter to respond before any official formal inquiry begins, and added: ”His being nominated really was unfortunate. I’m still surprised that the nomination was made in the midst of everything that was going on with racial profiling.”
