Town's white police official calls Obama N-word
AP ^ | 5/16/14 | Lynn Touhy

Posted on 05/16/2014 5:54:18 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue

A police commissioner in a predominantly white New Hampshire town says he won't apologize for calling President Barack Obama the N-word, and he sat with his arms crossed while angry residents at a meeting called for his resignation on Thursday.

"I believe I did use the 'N' word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse," Copeland said in the email to his fellow police commissioners, part of which he forwarded to O'Toole. "For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."

Old folk have a tendency to be both blunt and honest, NH has one of the lowest crime rates in the US, as does Maine and Vermont. Mostly if you took out the cities, we would have a statistical zero crime rate.

Hope the guy’s taxes are in order.

BTW, one definition of the N-word:

Slang: Extremely Disparaging and Offensive. a person of any race or origin regarded as contemptible, inferior, ignorant, etc.

That definition fits. That is why he is not apologizing.

Us old guys are the ones who are the most dangerous for several reasons.
1. We have less to lose.
2. We come from an education system that had the goal of actually educating people.
3. Our values were established and confirmed before PC even existed

Because of that, we make no apologies for calling a spade a spade or exposing that the emperor has not clothes.

Town resident Jane O'Toole, who moved to Wolfeboro four months ago, said she overheard Copeland say the slur at a restaurant in March and wrote to the town manager about it. Copeland, in an email to her, acknowledged using the slur in referring to the president and said he will not apologize.

"I believe I did use the 'N' word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse," Copeland said in the email to his fellow police commissioners, part of which he forwarded to O'Toole. "For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."

He should have added, and she can move back to Boston.

He can say whatever the hell he wants in private conversation. The eavesdropper is the one in the wrong.

By the way, I should have added, that is mild compared to some of the things I have heard obama called, right here on FR.

He's old enough that he doesn't need to give a shit about people taking offense at what he says. He doesn't need the job.

One Barney Fife cop in a town smaller than Mayberry spits out the “N” word and it’s national news?

It is telling that the AP article has to say in the headline itself that the police commissioner is white. If he were black the word would have been shrugged off by the editor and not become a news story.

In any case, the fact that it did in fact become a news story that a local policeman used that word in a private conversations shows just how rare such an occurrence really is. If this were a dog bites man story, nobody would care.

I hope the folks there pressure town resident Jane O'Toole to "get outta Dodge" and move BACK to wherever she came from.

SHE cast the "first stone," didn't she?

When I grew up my daddy used the N word but NOT for color.
The N word for for sorry ass individuals and yes some sorry ass white people fit that mold also.
If he were alive ZERO would fit the mold along with Slick & Jimmah..
He had no use for LBJ. LBJ was a choir boy compared to Jimmah, Slick and ZERO

The town has a new busybody, eavesdropping on every conversation she can, hunting for political incorrectness. Look at that woman’s face.
May we assume that since his party affiliation isn’t mentioned, he is a Democrat? Were he a Republican this story would be front page NYTimes, right?
