Jewish Cop Transferred After Busting Prosecutor for DWI

The NYPD transferred Officer Elliott Zinstein from the Bronx to Greenpoint, Brooklyn because the neighborhood supposedly needed more Jewish cops, according to today’s NY Daily News.

But there are a couple of reasons why Zinstein — an Orthodox Jew — wasn’t buying the explanation.

For another, Zinstein believes the department’s punishing him for busting a Bronx prosecutor for DWI — and refusing to cut her a break.
