A police officer has been dismissed after drivers complained he was making them declare Jesus Christ as their savior.
Multiple complaints were received about state trooper Brian L Hamilton, of Indiana, who was pulling speeding motorists over before instructing them to accept Jesus Christ.
According to Metro, Hamilton was lecturing drivers in the way of the Lord, but his repeatedly proselytising and handing out religious leaflets, which claimed to detail ‘God’s plan for salvation’, got him the boot.
Indiana State Police terminated Hamilton’s employment after he had served for 14 years.
Authorities claimed the dismissal came after a complaint received in January which suggested he’d questioned the driver’s religion.
It was the second complaint of that nature in 18 months.
