Concerns Raised Over Racism in Portsmouth Following Alleged Attack and Racist Language

The racist attack happened at a diner in downtown Portsmouth on Nov. 22, 2023 and has sparked worries about racism in the area. Dembele’s report of  attack language used during the racist attack has made people demand justice. Goodwin’s past including being fired from the police in 2015 makes this case more complex raising questions about why he did it.
