The retired police chief of a New Jersey township has been arrested and charged with a hate crime by the FBI for smashing a handcuffed African-American suspect in a 2016 door jam arrest.

CNN reports that a criminal complaint against Frank Nucera Jr., the former chief who resigned in January, revealed his violence towards “African-Americans, using the n-word and other epithets.”

Nucera expressed to an officer in his department that “The n****s are like ISIS, they have no value.”

In an affidavit, Nucera revealed a deeper hate for African-Americans when he said, “They should line them all up and mow ’em down.”

Following his charge for a hate crime, the former chief will be charged with “deprivation of rights by using excessive force” for an arrest last September.

The affidavit went on to explain how Nucera wanted to use police dogs in a discriminating way to intimidate African-Americans.

Nucera worked as the chief of Bordentown, a New Jersey town that consists of mostly White people, since 1983.

On November 1, 2017, he went to court where he “waived his right to a preliminary hearing.” He got out on a $500,000 bail.
