Skip to comments.Wolfeboro Police Commissioner uses the N-Word
Posted on 05/17/2014 10:16:09 AM PDT by First Authority
WOLFEBORO The Wolfeboro Police Departments dispatchers and the town managers office have fielded hundreds of phone calls and emails from as far as Alaska and Canada, reacting to reports of a police commissioners racist comment overheard in a restaurant.
Wolfeboro officials, do not understand that the police commission is a separate, elected board and not made up of sworn police officers.
To clarify any murkiness, Wolfeboro Police Chief Stuart Chase held a press conference Friday afternoon, the day after hundreds of people turned out to protest Commissioner Bob Copelands racial slur brought to light by local resident Jane OToole, who complained to town officials.
Copeland was overhead at a restaurant and has acknowledged calling President Obama a f...... n....., but has refused to apologize or resign.
Chase said the police and towns phone and email inboxes have been inundated with comments responding to Copelands remarks.
The general tenor of the calls or electronic messages is one of shock, anger and disbelief a sentiment that we as police officers and public servants understand. However, many callers have responded with vial, obscene and threatening comments which are misdirected and inappropriate as those purported comments made by an elected police commissioner some weeks ago.
For the record, clarification is needed, said Chase. The Wolfeboro Police Commission is a three-person board whose duties and responsibilities are defined by New Hampshire (laws). The commissioners are elected officials who serve three-year terms. They hire, fire, establish compensation and promulgate the rules and regulations of the police department. They are not officers or sworn employees, he said, adding that many callers assume the commissioners are police officers.
Chase said Copelands comments do not represent the views or opinions of the Wolfeboro Police Department, Wolfeboro Central Dispatch, or other members of the Wolfeboro Police Commission.

NH still is a swing state in almost every election. Sen. Shaheen is up for reelection. and the state is one of the last low-tax states with a very high volunteer government participation rate which pisses off every progressive. They all want to go to Concord and receive the highest pay for doing nothing but stiffing the producer class, IE, the taxpayer. It would be the best job they ever had, but the problem is, NH only pays $100 a year, period, and it is not the Obama period, NH citizens mean it, thank God.
I recommend visiting and taking down the paid Obama bloggers who frequent the MUL. They are there. It is well known.
Oh Noooooooooooooooooo! The “N” word! Crucify him! Crucify him!
This kind of effort on the part of progressives (communists) is to keep Obama in power. One of the ways is to energize his base and keep Shaheen in the senate. If the senate goes to GOP Obama might be impeached and thrown out of office. We can only pray.
I said the President is a...
Get angry over more important issues, hypocrites
Important issues? This is the essential issue, fool. It is about the first amendment, agreed? How about the second amendment, is that important? Should that be no BFD?
Oh, I know, amnesty for criminal aliens, reproductive rights, homo sexual marriage, yea, those are the big deals conservatives should be talking about...FOOL.
Overheard by whom, can they prove it-and isn’t that slander? If I blabbed what I claimed was a private conversation, I would expect to be dragged into court...
Oh-and if anyone asked me about a private conversation, my response would be none of your f’in business, and damn the torpedoes-it is called free speech, also known as the 1st amendment...
It is not slander unless it attributes words to ones being, IE, he is an avowed racist because.....
If it causes no damages, there is nothing to sue for, however, even if it causes some harm, financial or otherwise, if true, there is no case as truth is the perfect defense.
The reality of this is that the use of the words, in a private setting, are broadcast to broad-brush NH residents as racists so as to energize the progressive base to keep Shaheen in office. The democrats are shitteing in their pants thinking that Scott Brown may take that seat. He is not perfect but he is at least 75% better than Shaheen.
Who are you are calling a “fool”? Me?
Or was this sarcasm on your part?
My comments were directed a the hypocritical “progressives” who get all bent out of shape over what someone says that they don’t agree with.
So yeah, it’s a First Amendment issue . . . they right to name call and not be PC’d out for it.
Sorry, I misapprehended your remarks as directed to me, the messenger. Sorry again.
You are correct in your remarks, however, although you are correct you must see the progressives for what they are. Their intention is to distort conversation, society, language, history, speech, freedom, and everything necessary to cause a tyrannical revolution.
It does indeed start with simple things like this.
The racial makeup of the town (2000 Census) was
0.16% African American,
0.07% Native American,
0.36% Asian, 0.00%
0.05% from other races,
0.23% from two or more races.
0.61% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race.
And yes, the Wiki page has already been editted to include the recent “racial controversy”
Seems the complainers are mostly non-residents.
I predicted, back when it was Cliven Bundy on the Hot Seat, that we will be seeing a “Racist of the Week” highlighted in the media until November.
This is just part of the 2014 Democrat campaign strategy
TY After thinking about it, I realized my initial comment was vague so I see how you and apparently others misinterpreted it
I think we agree the PC madness needs to stop. Needed to stop ages ago. The priapism over the Michael Sam stuff is just another incredible example, as is any overreaction to the N word. Far too many problems in the ghetto to get worked up over this distraction.
Hey, everyone. Watch this: nigger. faggot. queer. nazi.
Now, watch this: Black people commonly refer to each other as “nigger”. Faggot is/was a British word for cigarette. Queer means odd. And Nazi...well, Hitler’s dead, so there is that.
I would throw the F word in here, but there is no group that I am aware of which is looking for any excuse to play the “Awwww..you hurt my feeelings! You used a word!”
I am sick of people *deciding* what words (which can be found in any dictionary, with their proper definition)we are allowed to use. I would never call someone a nigger, but you damn betcha if I saw a clown on a unicycle riding down the road, drinking a beer, I’d say he was queer.
If anyone has any interest in this discussion, I will be happy to cite the dictionary for you.
Amen..... using the F word brands you as a liberal.
I live in Wolfeboro and I take my kids to Nolan’s all the time.
When I was growing up, I was taught to respect my elders. I hate the trend for people out in public to say f*** or f***ing without a care as to the presence of ladies or children.
Mr. Copeland will shortly discover the need to spend more time with his family. I regard his offense as the same as if he had called “Obama” a f***ing ass****, and I really don’t think it’s a freedom of speech issue as much as it is a grace and favor issue.
It’s too bad the bad guys are going to win this one, but it can’t be helped.
Czarina of linguistics, Rachel Jentael, has dictated correct and current use of the English language. Not to be offense to you but you ol’ you ‘ol skewl.’ You guilty of retartet speech.
n.i.g.g.a. (wit an A at duh en)
f.a.g.g.u.h (wit uh at duh en)
q.u.e.yay.r. (like what fagguhs do but happay)
n.a.z.a.y. (with fashionable French sounding AY at duh en)
Please NOH8 your thinking to sound like one smart cookie. Dis our time. We in a new skewl. Dis our generation.
“I regard his offense as the same as if he had called Obama a f***ing ass****,”
Do you agree that Obama is that? If so, what is the problem of that sentiment? What if it is demonstrable? How about if there is proof that he is a liar? Can we call him so while using adjectives you might disapprove of?
So, what you are saying is that you, some more progressive type, disapproves of course dialog. Am I correct?
Was is right to call the King of England all of those things our patriots did? How about calling Hitler a murderer? How about calling or referring to Islamists who terrorize, terrorists? When is it improper, in the name of freedom, liberty, and the preservation of our sacred constitution to use language to preserve such?
I hope people don’t make this guy into some kind of hero.
he should just sing it in a rap song.
If a Liberal said something similar about President Bush, liberals would have praised them for speaking “Truth to Power.”
I’d get upset about it except the “N” word is one of the most common words heard on Cable TV and in the movies. If its so vile the blacks need to stop calling themselves the “N” word. You don’t hear whites calling themselves “crackas” You don’t hear Jews calling themselves “kikes” etc. etc.
Mr. Copeland ought to hold a press conference, to the delight of his detractors who expect the usual groveling.
Then he should just start reading lyrics from the current rappers’ repertoire and then ask, “Where’s the beef?” - and watch liberal heads explode.
I don’t regard seniors using the F word in front of children as a conservative position.
“I dont regard seniors using the F word in front of children as a conservative position.”
So you do not agree with the decorum, right?
Is the sentiment and language constitutional?
If you had a choice between what society (the progressive overreach) agreed was right and freedom, which would you choose? I choose freedom....
Thanks for the explanation. Why are people so hot on what anyone says in private-no matter what it is or who it is about, it can’t be substantiated-unless you fall into the trap like that guy did...
Six letter word starting with NI—— that describes Obama:
(paraphrased from Ann Coulter’s Mugged): ‘ the N-word is taboo except when used by black rappers and actors; the non-stop use of the epithet could get you a Grammy, Emmy, Oscar,
or NAACP Image Award”. She mentions the movie Pulp Fiction “where the N word is used approximately 5 billion times.”
