Fired New Jersey Cop Says Police Chief Made Racist Comments
A former New Jersey cop’s lawsuit is making national headlines.
Harold Johnson of Frenchtown, New Jersey claims that in 2011 Chief Allan Kurylka called him “n***er’ and told staff that he was waiting for Johnson to “get him some black p***y.’ He was later fired
A former black police officer says he was fired from the borough after speaking out against a chief who often used racist jokes and slurs.
The Superior Court lawsuit filed by Harold Johnson was settled last year for $92,500.
Johnson was the only black police officer for the small borough of 1,300 people, less than a dozen of whom are African-American.
Johnson, who lives in Lawrence, had claimed he was subjected by “verbal abuse, harassment, disrespect, and threats of job loss on more than one hundred different occasions” and that Chief Allan Kurylka called him “n*****” and other vulgar terms.
The lawsuit alleges that the Kurylla in 2011 told about 10 other cops that he was “still waiting for Harold to get me some black *****,” using a vulgar term for a woman’s genitals.
A year later, Kurylla told Johnson that he needed an Ebonics book so that he could be “up to date on Officer Johnson’s slang.”
Johnson was fired Aug. 1, 2012, the lawsuit says.
SMH…despicable, this demand for black women definitely has Daniel Holtzclaw undertones.
