Report: Jury Deadlocked in BurlCo Law Man’s Hate Crime Trial

The New Jersey Statehouse.

The federal jury deliberating the fate of Frank Nucera, Jr., the former longtime chief of the Bordentown Township Police Department, who was captured on recordings “using racist language and making threats against minorities and was accused of assaulting a young black man,” indicated Monday morning they are deadlocked, according to the Burlington County Times.

The judge in the Nucera case has asked jurors to “give it another try.”

According to the BurlCo Times:

“Jurors heard audio from a handful of the 81 recordings [Sgt. Nathan] Roohr made of conversations he had with Nucera and other officers, including a conversation shortly after Stroye’s arrest.

“I’m (expletive) tired of them man. I’ll tell you what, it’s gonna get to the point where I can shoot one of these (racial slur),” Nucera was heard saying after the arrest.

“Roohr, a K-9 dog handler for Bordentown Township police, began secretly recording Nucera about a year before the assault after he allegedly heard the former chief say, ‘These (racial slur) are like ISIS; they have no value. They should line them all up and mow ’em down. I’d like to be on the firing squad, I could do it.’”
