After using the n-word to refer to President Obama and showing no remorse, the police commissioner of a New Hampshire town has stepped down.
The New York Daily News reports that Wolfeboro, N.H. Police Commissioner Robert Copeland resigned from his position on Sunday night, just two months after being elected. Copeland owned up to using the slur while dining at a restaurant in March, the same month he was appointed police commissioner.
During a meeting last week, the 82-year-old Copeland behaved like a petulant child, folding his arms in defiance while town residents all but demanded his wrinkled dome on a stick.
In a letter written last month, Copeland admitted to using the slur in reference to Obama:
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.
Wolfeboro Board of Selectmen Chair Linda Murray said the town's residents were elated that Copeland stepped down. "The town is pleased," she told the Daily News. "This gives us the opportunity to move on."
Mitt Romney, who owns a home in Wolfeboro, even called for Copeland's resignation. That's how you know he's a truly despicable human being.
