(Holyoke, MA) — The ACLU of Massachusetts has asked Attorney General Martha Coakley to investigate allegations of racial profiling within the Holyoke Police Department. A letter by Attorney Bill Newman questions the November arrest of a Springfield man on charges of unlicensed motor vehicle operation. The man says he and three others were harassed and questioned about their immigration status by a Holyoke cop who then improperly arrested him and had his truck impounded. Newman’s letter on behalf of the organization “Just Communities” says local cops should not be acting as federal immigration officials.
