US police chief wanted to ‘mow down’ black people: A police chief in the US state of New Jersey compared African Americans to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) armed group and expressed his desire to “mow em’ down” in a firing squad, according to a federal lawsuit.

Sixty-year-old Frank Nucera Jr, who was the police chief of the Bordentown Township Police Department (BTPD) until earlier this year, has been charged with a federal hate crime and other civil rights offences.

The charges were unsealed on Tuesday.

The lawsuit, seen by Al Jazeera, alleges that Nucera slammed the head of an African American suspect, who is not named in the documents, “into a doorjamb, causing bodily injury”.

The lawsuit also describes a worrisome pattern of racist remarks, including referring to African Americans as “n*ggers”, “n*gs” and “m*ulies”.
