Jury deadlocks in police chief’s hate-crime trial

A jury failed to reach a verdict Friday on two hate crime-related charges against a white former police chief accused of assaulting a handcuffed black suspect. Authorities alleged former Bordentown Township police chief Frank Nucera smashed the 18-year-old’s head into a doorjamb while he was being escorted by two officers from a hotel in 2016. They say the assault was driven by racial hatred.

"Hate-crime" should not exist. Why not charge the officer with what he actually did, assault?
