    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Some residents of a predominantly white New Hampshire town are upset with racist remarks a police commissioner made about President Barack Obama. Resident Jane O'Toole said she overheard Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland use a racial slur in describing Obama. And in an email to her, Copeland, who is white, acknowledged using the N-word 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 excerpt from an email he sent to his fellow police...

    FULL-strength beer has been banned from the Commonwealth Games boxing venue in a bid to curb rowdy spectators. Games organisers described the move as "proactive" while Victoria Police chief Christine Nixon said she did not have figures at hand on how many people had been ejected for drunken behaviour. But both confirmed the heavy beer had been scrapped in favour of light ale. "We had concerns about the venue and about the people who are visiting and coming along to the events and, so, we had discussions with management of the venue around the heavy beer," Mrs Nixon said. She...
  • And what about Giuliani? (Kerik Imbroglio - KERPLUNK!)

    New York City is a hall of funny mirrors, which is why even its smartest politicians don't know what normal looks like. Thus, it is entirely possible that former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani didn't notice anything strange about Bernard Kerik, who once served as his police commissioner. But while a raffish touch can be charming, a walk on the wild side is quite something else. Bush had no choice but to take a pass on Bernie Kerik. None of this will change Giuliani's political future. Had Kerik been a model Scout, Giuliani would still be facing a most unpromising career on...

    Statement by Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik Regarding Kerry's Statement to the International Brotherhood of Police Officers(title edited for length) WASHINGTON, DC— Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik issued the following statement regarding John Kerry’s remarks to the International Brotherhood of Police Officers: "John Kerry's attacks on the President over his support for police and first responders are completely detached from reality. President Bush has provided unprecedented support for first responders. Under the President's leadership, the federal government has provided more than $13 billion to state and local governments to prepare for terrorism. Last year,...

    Posted on Tue, Nov. 04, 2003 WHEN DID COMMISH KNOW? JOHNSON INSISTS HE WASN'T AWARE IN '01 OF FBI PROBE By Jill Porter WHAT DID he know and when did he know it? That Watergate-era question has now surfaced in respect to Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson and the federal investigation involving Mayor Street. According to reliable sources, Johnson knew as far back as 2001 that the FBI was investigating possible corruption in the mayor's office - because he told then-Police Commissioner John Timoney and mentioned it at a meeting of other deputy police commissioners. "That is totally untrue," Johnson...
