Portland man sues police for refusing to take hate crime report

A lawsuit charges police refused to investigate a hate crime.

A man is suing the Portland Police Bureau after he said officers ignored his report on a possible hate crime.

Chuck Crockett, who is black, said he reported the crime to the North Portland Precinct on March 15, a couple days after the incident took place. He said the tepid response from police officers made him feel like his trauma did not matter.
