'Death Race 2012' scandal leads to State Police shake-up

NJ.com -- TRENTON — The State Police have reassigned three commanders, including a high-ranking major, as the scandal involving high-speed escorts of luxury sports cars spread up the ranks, three sources with knowledge of the moves said today.

The shake-up was one of the most significant in the division’s recent history.

The commander of the troop overseeing northern New Jersey, Maj. Robert Catullo, and his deputy commander, Capt. Michael Cerisano, were reassigned late Friday, as was a region commander, Capt. Warren Moore, said the sources, who requested anonymity because they were not allowed to discuss the moves.

It was not immediately clear what role the transferred troopers might have played in the high-speed escort scandal, or where they will now be stationed.

It is only illegal if you get caught! Somebody must have forgotten to invite various higher-ups, and the governor, to ride along.

Previous governor (the thief Corzine) was almost killed when he had his State Police drivers speed at around 100 mph in his SUV. So close, and yet he lived to go on and defraud Wall Street.

How about those state police moon lightning in malls and groceries is okay. Could be after work hours but still with the use of uniforms and side arms. Why escorting is different? Just want to know.
