This Minneapolis transit cop may find himself in hot water over the below video. In it he is seen asking a train passenger about his immigration status. This has prompted an internal probe by transit officials to determine if the officer stepped out of bounds.

“It is not the practice of the Metro Transit police to inquire about the immigration status of our riders,” according to the statement released by Metro Transit Police Chief John Harrington. “It is the policy of the Metro Transit Police Department that all members make personal and professional commitments to equal enforcement of the law and equal service to the public.”
