If I owned that establishment the waitress would be fired.

You see, people don't like to pay money to go eat and be listened too.

It's bad for business. It's just rude. What if the waitress misunderstood the comment.

This is word police. Pure and simple.

Another attempt by the MSM to keep us divided.

you keep usong that word, busybody, to describe this waitress. Why the need to try and label her with a negative stigma?

You keep using that word, racist, to describe the man. Why the need to try and label him with a negative stigma?

One word about one politician in dc doesn't make a person a racist.

You asked which right trumps the other. I said - the mans right to expect to have a private conversation and his right to call one politician in dc by a bad name. That trumps the womans 'right' to listen in and blab. You said to stack them as to who had the bigger 'right' in my opinion. That's what I did.

actually, I havent used to word 'racist' a single time in this thread.

So now, youre not only trying to sway the readers opinion of the waitress by attaching a stigma, but you are lying to try and change their opinion about me, all while deflecting thw queation. Bravo. Thats master level trollery right there.


How about a straight answer: do you admit that this guy said what he said in public, within earshot of other people?

Because using racially derogatory terms in casual conversation tends to be something that Racist do, and than they think nothing of doing so.

So Maybe I am wrong, and should change my vocab, start flowering it up with archaic derogatory outdated slang.

You know for free speech.

In my opinion the waitress is in the wrong, For one she shouldn't be listening in on private conversations and she really should never repeat what she hears customers talking about. Especially since it can cause problems. I wouldn't want to go to that restaurant either if all my conversations are going to be shared by the waitress to whomever she / he pleases to gossip to. The waitress should be fired from her / his job.

The cop has every right to state his opinion and call ANYONE the N word or any other word he deems necessary. Is it racist to call someone the N word? If so then 75% of all Black men and women are racist because they call each other N on a daily basis.

I agree with you.

You left out the part where he stole the Election using Federal Agencies.

Mr. Obama is the worst President in History.

This is the worst House and Senate in History.

And Like you...chances are I would just hate you regardless of the pigment in your skin.

And there he goes .... you pulled the same thing in the other thread .. typical.

How about a straight answer:

I always do.

do you admit that this guy said what he said in public, within earshot of other people?

He was in a restaurant which isn't private however the expectation is that you can have a private conversation. So that's a mixed answer.

Anyone that expects to have a private conversation while in a public place like a restaurant is a idiot. Today you are lucky to have a private conversation on the phone much less in public. A public official should expect for people to be listening to what they are saying because they represent that town and there is always someone with an axe to grind.

- I question if she's even legally allowed to be repeating what she listened in on. Is she? Maybe she is. I really don't know.


Wait, your source doesn't say she's a waitress...



Town resident Jane O'Toole, who moved to Wolfeboro four months ago, said she overheard Copeland say the slur at a restaurant in March and wrote to the town manager about it.


Where did you get the information that she's a waitress?

Come on people. Has the social issue of bigotry become so politicized in this country that people are willing to stick up for a law enforcement official who drops the n-bomb in PUBLIC?

REALLY?

There's no privacy issue, no ambiguity — this guy is a douche bag and he admits it.


Just to be clear on this...

If the police official was black, this would be okay... Right?

Yeah... I can't keep score anymore...


Awesome. That's just a really insightful comment.



A PRIVATE conversation is just that...PRIVATE.

In which he has the right to speak however he wants.

This PC crap is getting ridiculous


He said it in public, in a restaurant, loudly enough to be overheard. Denying obvious bigotry is just as bad as PC run amok. Two sides of the same irrational coin.



The waitress' statement is hearsay. There was no crime committed, aside from maybe liberals believing a thought crime has been committed. But so far that isn't officially a crime. Yet.


HE ADMITTED TO IT. What does hearsay have to do with anything? Lots of things aren't crimes but that doesn't mean we should tolerate it, particularly from law enforcement or public officials. "A thought crime" could you be any more melodramatic? This isn't a partisan issue. Nobody should support this kind of crap. The fact that you are willing to do so ON POLITICAL GROUNDS says a lot about your lack of character.

All the deflections in the world dont change a thing. Someone who has to lie to try and sway the reader is a troll. Plain and simple.

I didnt ask about any expectations. Lets try a third time for a straight answer (since you always do):

Did he or did he not make these statements in bpublic place, within earshot of other people?

Especially if they hold political office.

So that means that whenever someone uses a racial slur they should automatically be labeled a racist by the world at large and shunned? There cannot POSSIBLY be another reason or explanation?

Here's the definition of racism:

rac·ism [rey-siz-uhm]
noun
1.
a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.
a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3.
hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

That reads like a pretty heavy accusation to me. I find it hard to believe that someone using a racial slur once in passing is enough evidence to say that the someone secretly believes that his race is superior to other races.

Well, seeing as how he totally owned up to it, I don't think she misunderstood him. People don't go to restaurants to have really private conversations. I wouldn't plan a murder or a terrorist attack while at a restaurant. I wouldn't tell my husband that I wanted to divorce him while at a restaurant. I wouldn't tell my mother that I hated her guts and wished she would die while at a restaurant. If I wanted to speak about any of these private things, I would do it in a more private place. Any conversations I have at a restaurant, I wouldn't be afraid or ashamed of them being overheard. This guy said something that he is obviously not afraid or ashamed to say in public, since he was eager to admit to it when confronted.

So the police commissioner was upset and said something about Obama in a conversation. He shouldn't have called him the N word though. Maybe "big A-Hole" or "blaming idiot that is trying to destroy the country" would have been more appropriate.

I don't know why this got so blown out of proportion. Maybe it is because the police commissioner insinuated all blacks were as bad as the deceiving politician we have in charge. Don't insult the black people this way Mr. commissioner, most people won't wind up that crooked..

I would also fire the waitress, that is not her job to repeat what she hears to everyone.

I don't have the expectation that a conversation in a public place will not be overheard. If you want to have a private conversation with people all around you, you have to take special care to keep it private.
