More than 100 residents packed a Police Commission meeting Thursday to demand the resignation of Copeland, 82.
About 20 black people live in Wolfeboro, a town of 6,300 in central New Hampshire, a state that's 94 percent white and 1 percent black. None of the police department's 12 full-time officers is black or a member of another minority.
A resident said she overheard Copeland use a slur a restaurant in March and wrote to the town manager. 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 an email to his fellow police commissioners. "For this, I do not apologize - he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."
It's downright scary that someone like this has a badge.
