Newscast WOLFEBORO—Embattled 82-year-old Police Commissioner Robert Copeland
faced angry residents in New Hampshire, who demanded he resign after using a racial
slur to describe Barack Obama.
In a restaurant, Copeland referred to Obama as an f******g n****r, and said he
would not apologize for it, because according to Copeland, Obama meets the criteria
of the word.
“I believe I did use the ‘N’ word in reference to the current occupant of the
Whitehouse,” Copeland said in an email to his fellow police commissioners, “For this, I
do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.”
In the town hall meeting the residents asked him to resign because they said he brings
shame their town and New Hampshire, since he is a public official.
