Abstract

"City" piece on Richard Okot, 40, a Sudanese refugee living in Portland and the father of Jackson Okot, 19, who with Akim Carlo, 17, won a civil suit against Portland police sargeant Joseph Conicelli. A jury found that Concicelli had unlawfully detained the two teenagers in 1998 and used excessive force in arresting them. Richard Okot and his friends and relatives now say they are angry and afraid and would like to leave America and return to their war-torn homeland because they no longer feel protected in this country.
