Chief accused of slamming black teen's head into door: Trump is 'last hope for white people'

A former New Jersey police chief standing trial for allegedly slamming a black teenager’s head into a door jamb reportedly called President Trump “the last hope for white people” before the 2016 election.

“I’m telling you, you know what, Donald Trump is the last hope for white people, cause Hillary (Clinton) will give it to all the minorities to get a vote,” said Frank Nucera Jr., former chief of Bordentown Township, according to NJ.com’s reporting of a transcript displayed at trial this week. “That’s the truth! I’m telling you.”

Nucera, 62, is charged with a hate crime, deprivation of the suspect’s rights and making false statements to the FBI in connection with the September 2016 arrest of an 18-year-old black man.

Two officers were escorting the handcuffed teenager from a hotel into a police car when Nucera approached the teen from behind and slammed his head into a metal door jamb, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in New Jersey.

The incident was part of what prosecutors alleged to be a “significant history” of racist behavior in which Nucera referred to African Americans with the n-word, compared them to the Islamic State, said he’d like to shoot them on a firing squad and tried to use police dogs to intimidate them. Bordentown, located outside the state capital of Trenton, is 77 percent white and 13 percent black.

Nucera resigned from the police department in early 2017 when he discovered the FBI was investigating him, NJ.com reported. He was arrested months later.

Nucera collects an annual pension of nearly $106,000, public records show.

I've seen no disparagement of Italians or slurs here on DU. His point seemed clear enough to me.

Sincerely,

An Italian American

A very well known poster here refers to them as goombas. I called him a racist and was alerted on.

...the Men's Rights and "white people are oppressed" crowd make up a majority of the Republican electorate. And have for a long time.

There continue to be Democrats and many members of the media who insist that there are many good Republicans and that right wingers simply have a different take on tax policy, the role of government, etc. That mythological thinking needs to stop, and the sooner it does the better. It's time to be honest about the monster created by the GOP over the last 50 years.

Why do I feel like the "all" he's referring to is equal rights?
