New Hampshire Police Commissioner Resigns After Using the "N" Word When Referencing President Barack Obama [Video]

Just the other day I posted about a Wolfeboro, New Hampshire police commissioner who used a racial slur to describe President Barack Obama - let's keep it real - he called him a nigger.  And when called on it, refused to apologize.  

Actually, this is what he had to say...   "I believe I did use the 'N' word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse. For this, I do not apologize - he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."

Well, it is with great pleasure that it has been confirmed, Police Commissioner, Robert Copeland, has resigned today.  

The town manager, selectmen and Mitt Romney all called for Copeland’s resignation, and more than 100 residents packed a police commission meeting held last week.  Up until today,  Copeland refused to step down. 


I guess the man who had so much to say --- quickly became a man of little words.  Copeland submitted his resignation on Sunday night and it was a quick one-liner,  "I resign."

"The town is pleased," Board of Selectmen Chair Linda Murray told the Associated Press. "This gives us the opportunity to move on."

Jane O'Toole, who actually overheard the now ex-commissioner's comments, has received harassing phone calls, threats, and everything else.  But she's also received an overwhelming amount of support. 

“If you’re a bigot or a racist, don’t bother coming here,” she said. “We’re ‘Live Free or Die.’ You can live here if you’re black, Hispanic… Whatever you want to be, we’re open to it. We’re an open town, we’re a town that stood up and said, ‘This is not right.’

“This town is united in its stance against this. There’s no reason why anyone should boycott this town. This is an open, welcoming town.”

Congrats to you for standing up and saying something.  The only way to stamp out racism is to call people on it.  There will always be racists wherever you go, but if you shut them down quick, they will go away quietly as evidenced by the one-liner, "I resign."

This just made my day!
