black police chief settles racial bias suit for $545,000
A top black police chief targeted with a noose hanging in his Long Island department’s locker room will receive $545,000 to settle a federal discrimination lawsuit, his lawyer said Thursday.
Willie Dixon was the first black assistant chief in the history of the Hempstead Police Department, but was says he ws treated like a second-hand citizen.
Dixon, 62, was forced to retire at a lower rank despite being cleared of a slew of unfounded allegations levied against him by his superior, his lawyer Eric Sanders said.
“Unfortunately the burden of this settlement will fall on the taxpayers instead of the people responsible,” Dixon said.
Dixon found the noose hanging from a locker room pipe near an article that mentioned his name in 2007. The Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI investigated the incident but were unable to determine who was responsible.
Dixon claimed he suffered retaliation from the former chief for going public about the noose incident.
A civil trial was scheduled to begin next month in Long Island Federal Court.
