PLAINFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Plainfield's police chief is challenging critics of his department's investigation of the beating of a black teenager to either file a complaint with federal authorities or drop their rhetoric.
Chief Robert Hoffman sent a letter to the Norwich Bulletin on Thursday saying that the critics should bring their frustrations to the U.S. Justice Department's civil rights division. He says they should follow their criticism with action.
Police have been accused of racism and foot-dragging while looking into the beating of 17-year-old Nashawn Williams last October. The teen says he was attacked by a group of white men while waiting at a bus stop.
No one has been arrested. Williams asked Gov. M. Jodi Rell to intervene in the investigation on Tuesday.
