This was as bad of a case of “Do you know who I am?” that I’ve seen in a long time. Thankfully, it ended well with the woman who will become the poster child for this often job ending disease, resigning from her post. But Caren Z. Turner has left us with something that she will long be remembered for. We thank her for that and we thank the two Tenafly, New Jersey officers who retained their cool and refused to be intimidated.
Turner’s resignation as a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey commissioner came as the agency was investigating Turner’s actions at the traffic stop involving her daughter. By the way, Turner served as the ethics chair for the agency.
Flashing her commissioner’s gold badge and boasting of her influence during a routine traffic stop involving her daughter, Caren Z. Turner demanded to know why police had pulled the car over and why it was being impounded.
Then she launched into a tirade at the two officers.
All of it was captured on camera.
Tenafly Police released a video Tuesday revealing just why Turner abruptly resigned last week as a commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
