Attorney General Michael Carpenter said yesterday that he will not file a hate crimes-lawsuit against Cheverus High School students Adam Cope and Paul Locke who were accused of having made ongoing racial slurs and threats against a black Cheverus student. Portland police chief Michael Chitwood urged that such a suit be filed after the pair refused to perform 50 hour of community service at Portland's Cambodian Buddhist Temple, the AME Zion Church, and the police horse stable. Over Chitwood's objection Cope and Locke were allowed to work for the Refugee Resettlement Program, which is run by Catholic Charities of Maine. Their work there satisfied Carpenter, but still rankles Chitwood, who feels the boys were allowed to "dictate" their own program.
