CMPD's Major Vicki Foster Adds Surprising Words of Wisdom to her Emails

Ever wonder what the person of the other end of that email is thinking, what things are on their minds, or what sports teams they are passionate about?



That is one of the reasons emails have the footnote option. Just a little lighthearted fun in most cases.

But, in the never ending saga of the strange and weird, CMPD's Major Vicki Foster recently discovered she could automatically add a little footnote to her official CMPD emails.

Copy below:

Major Vicki Foster
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police
Community Services Division
601 E. Trade Street
Charlotte, NC 28202
704-432-0377(Office)
704-336-5712 (Fax)

"God will handle those who lie and seek to destroy character. Disclaimers of I know not what I say or do will not be an excuse. Intelligent people know registered agents are people who can receive mail on behalf of another."

As you can see, she is really out there with her thought process and what she considers acceptable for official CMPD correspondence.

Someone commented they thought is was some type of "Jehovah's Witness" thing and a claim she has nothing to do with Melvin Key's security business. See Cedar Post story: CMPD's Major Vicki Foster

As taxpayers we have to ask ourselves do we really want to continue to pay this person's salary? Someone who in their official capacity fails to understand the basic concept of appropriate behavior.

Reminds me of one of those scam emails from Nigeria:

"I write you today with sadness in my heart, and tear in eye and must report the passing of your departed ancestory Mr. Insisnaspa Jones."

or this one....

"I do the voodoo that you do so know well, I have your picture, I will take your eyes. Unless of course, you pay me $500 USD, then we'll sort of skip that whole eye taking stuff - ok?"

Props to the person who forwarded Major Sherie E. Pearsall's email to Cedar Posts. Another member of Chief Monroe's Commandand Staff who has no concept of professionalism and no clue as to how her emails appear to the taxpaying public.

BOO! I’m back……..!

No, Just kidding……..Thanks to all of you who submitted nominations recognizing our employees and citizens for works well done. I do appreciate it and look forward to seeing ALL OF YOU at this year’s awards ceremony scheduled for May 13th .

Nominations are hereby closed……OVA AND OUT!

Maj. “P”

Oh...My...Word!! I cannot help but agree with you Cedar about how inappropriate these quotes are for a person in her position. I am simply stunned and saddened that such an intelligent person has been so negatively affected by "hitching her wagon" to this administration. So very sad.....

Anonymous said...

Not only inappropriate for a person in her "position", but totally inappropriate for any sane person.

If she has something to say, say it and don't mask it in indecipherable quotes.

Exactly WHAT is in the koolaid that some at CMPD have been gulping?

Everyone knows she is still in the security business, and many believe she should be "let go" because of being disingenuous about it.

As many have said, if "others" had done what she did an continues to do, they would no longer be at CMPD. Well, if integrity was still a commodity valued at CMPD, but we know the chief is not a fan of integrity and ethical behavior.

But this is just too over the top.

I hope she is planning on going with him to DC.

I am not surprised from what I have heard about her kiss butt relationship with rodney.

Anonymous said...

Wow, that is rather threatening, don't you think?

And should not be on a city email.

So now she is calling on a Higher Power to take care of her "enemies"? Seems she is about as mean and vindictive as rodney, they are two peas in a mutated pod.

The CMPD is SO screwed if she is appointed a Deputy Chief.

But what does that mean, that last bit of the sig line? The bit about being a registered agent and receiving mail?

She is living in Bizarro World, huh?

And as far as I have heard, NOT A WORD OF WHAT HAS BEEN POSTED ON CEDAR POSTS HAS BEEN A LIE, not one word. It has just been verifiable facts.

And just when you think it can't get ANY weirder? You can't make this crap up, can you?

Anonymous said...

I especially liked Major Pearsall's email last week when she was seeking nominations for Police Week Awards. The salutation began with "BOO!" and she signed off the CMPD Everyone email as '"Ova and out! Major "P"'. Does anyone still have a copy to post?

Is anyone sensing that professionalism among our Executive Staff has completely gone out the window? With their WRITTEN word and inappropriate ACTIONS, how do they expect anyone to respect them? But then again, Pearsall is Vicki Foster's best friend and shopping buddies (and Leadership Charlotte buddies) with Marvette Monroe. That's why she was promotoed to Major after only being a Captain for 11 months.

No she di'unt!

There is a time and a place for everything.

Seems a lot of higher ups do not have ANY sense of PROPRIETY!!

That is what happens when the STANDARDS OF APPROPRIATE AND ETHICAL behavior are lowered.

And make no mistake about it, they indeed have been lowered by rodney and rayray at the CMPD.

It's just a matter of how low can they go....and how many sheep will follow them off the cliff.

I just can't help but feel someone has GOT to stand up to this bully and stand up for what is ethical and right.

Really, if vicki is capable of attaching something like this to all of her city emails, what exactly does that say about her maturity level and her professionalism and her JUDGEMENT folks. Is this someone who should be in a LEADERSHIP position at CMPD?

And for that matter, Pearsall, too?
Her email was NOT cute, and TOTALLY inappropriate.

Anonymous said...

The point is the command staff of the CMPD is in place, and we, the taxpayer, MUST be ready to stand with the officers who must prevail under these conditions. Our safety is at stake, and yes, the reputation of the CMPD and Charlotte as well. I understand POLICE WEEK is nearly upon us, normally a somber time for officers to remember their fallen comrades. We are with you in deed and spirit officers!

I am glad that this is being brought to light in the organization that I used to respect. But it is still incredibly embarassing....I feel sorry for those who are suffering under this incompetence.

Regarding Major Foster, "intelligent" people know she is not just "receiving mail" for her fiancee. Give me a freaking break.

Her name is on company documents, her resume USED to be on their website to tout their qualifications, it has been removed.

Once again, she is hiding behind loopholes and being totally disingenuous.

It wasn't that long ago that she was boasting about her association with the company, from what I have heard.

As the saying goes, "I was born at night, but it wasn't last night".

Why cant she just say it? This would be an example of a female acting like they are still 12...Where is the professionalism at?

I have heard the same thing from several different sources.

And so it continues unchecked...what will have to happen before all the ethicalissues swirling around rodney are addressed?

With each new issue I think, well, someone will address this, will at least question how and why this was done, question rodney and rayray directly. But that does not happen, so just what will it take?

Anonymous said...

I would like to think that people, both inside and outside the department, are working in silence about Rod n Ray. Waiting for the right moment, which is very important to avoid negative backlash you think? That is just my theory. Too many people are being screwed over for someone to not be conspiring? Who knows though..maybe he really is "above" the law and everyone else

I really want to believe you are right.

I just don't want to think that there is no one on Command Staff that is not repulsed by what has gone on and continues to go on under Rodney/RayRay.

I don't want to think that there is not one person that has the integrity to stand up for what is
ethical and professional.

So I truly hope you are right!

Real as the nose on your face!

An ACTUAL BUSINESS email sent to everyone on CMPD.

Both were, the email sent by "major" Pearsall and the salutation on the one by Major Foster.

Doesn't seem possible, does it, that two Majors could have such
a lack of judgment?

Things have change drastically, from everything I hear, since the
rodney/ray machine blew into town, and decidedly NOT FOR THE BETTER!

The sad part is that there are much better professional people in the department who can't get promoted because they have common sense. I have worked under one of these Majors in the past as a Sergeant and was surprised even then she made it that far. I can't even imagine what some of the other higher ups are thinking right now.....Lord help us all.

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:33,
You are right, from what I have heard. There are much better qualified people in the Dept. who are better equipped to be LEADERS.

People who are not in it for their own "glory", like the ones there ow who just want another plaque to hang on the wall or another meaningless "commendation" to hang up.

There are people that actually care about the CMPD and it's Officers and want to keep it the well respected, responsive dept. it WAS. People who are not egotistical "glory hogs" who are just in it for themselves.

Let's hope at the end of the day, common sense will prevail and people will see this regime for what it is: self-serving with no integrity. Promoting unqualified people simply for the sake of diversity, which is never, ever a good thing.

Has anyone heard about the latest public information spokesperson brought in from D.C., Latricia Good? Julie Hill was fired from that job because ROMO said he'd be the spokesperson for CMPD. Then Ray Ray was hired to do it, then the TV reporter, and now this gal. Pay steps have been frozen due to lack of money. Isn't it interesting how money can be found to pay for whatever ROMO wants, but not for the rank and file?

Anonymous said...

The money for the position is probably coming from, in part, the suspension of all non-state mandated training. It appears that training for high risk situations is no longer seen as needed by the new administration.

Anonymous said...

And that very "non essential" training, i.e., training over and above what is mandated by the state is what has helped to make the CMPD what it is...well, what it was before rodney monroe and ray came.

It was that very training that contributed to the competency and professionalism of the CMPD.

It was that very training that elevated the CMPD to a police department admired and respected by PD's all over the United States.

This will be just ONE of the abysmal legacies that rodney and rayray leave the CMPD.

I am telling you, from what I hear, if he is not stopped soon, and I know others have said this, but it bears repeating, it will take the CMPD literally years to recover from his unbelievable incompetence and willingness to compromise the integrity of the CMPD.

His lack of goals, lack of a plan and his shortsightedness is just the tip of the iceberg with this guy... appalling.

No One could have judgment that bad, no one.

So now she has, like, put a "curse" on her enemies?? That is just too much!

This is simply stunning....I just don't know how she still has a job.

It is truly scary to think she is a position of authority with the CMPD.

I can tell you, as a "civilian" and a citizen of Charlotte, it scares the hell out of me.

Didn't someone tell the story on here of when she was a Sargent and did something to her exes car outside a club? Can't remember exactly what it was, but it was over jealousy?

I wonder... did she put a "curse" on him?

And just what would she do if you disagreed with her at the Police Dept.? I can only imagine you would be on her "list".

It truly boggles the mind.

(I'm sure that is a quote from the Bible, so is she comparing herself to whomever said it?)

Anonymous said...

From everything I have heard about her, she is childish, extremely immature, and is not someone who should be in a "leadership" position, i.e., in a position of leading and influencing ANYONE.

And many wonder just how she has made it as far up the ranks as she has....but I think the Peter Principle applies here...she has reached her level of incompetence.

But incurring the wrath of "God" on anyone that has a negative, albeit TRUE, thing to say about her, well, what can you really say about that? It just proves everything I have heard about her.
Childish, vindictive and immature.
Unable to be objective because she is too worried about currying favor and covering her butt.

Yep, sounds like someone the city would want in a position of power at a POLICE department...sure.

As people have said, you just can't make this stuff up!!

Someone told me there is an additional signature line on her emails now?

It looks like she is sending emails from different computers and each one has a different quote attached to it.

Isn't that misuse of city equipment for everyone to attach their political views, "Godly" quotes and blatant threats to members of the CMPD on work e-mails? I wonder what action would be taken if other members of the city or CMPD started attaching such nonsense to thier e-mails? I bet they would be surely disciplined for it. You all should try it just for the fun of it.

I have known many service men and women of all ranks, and several in law enforcement and fire fighter assignments. Those who worked hard, and studied harder, often times continued to rise through whatever rank structure they wished to be part of. The best never forgot where they came from, or who helped them along the way. However, they also understood that rank held a certain inate respect and esteem. These traits tend to be relinquished voluntarily by those undeserving of their status, while those with honor and integrity flourished. It remains to be seen who among the CMPD elite will prevail but, as concerned taxpayers, let us all hope those selfless souls concerned with employee and community safety rise to the top.

Anonymous said...

Well, I hate to state the obvious, but it looks like anyone with close ties to Rodney/RayRay can do whatever the hell they please and suffer NO CONSEQUENCES.

But just let someone outside his cadre or "inner circle" step even close to the line and all matters of hell rain down on them.

It is so OBVIOUS, SO BLATANT, it's like he is thumbing his nose at the very people who hired him and who work under him.

He DOES NOT know how to lead people. From what I have heard, he thinks publicly berating people and throwing his considerable weight around garners respect. "Anyone of intelligence" knows that just does not work...it only causes resentment and no respect for the person who is doing it.

And playing favorites so obviously only leads to resentments and a racial tension that was never there before.

He truly is the definition of a Bully. There is no depth there.

I love the stories about the CMPD thugs within the department!! Too funny...charlotte's finest!! LOL
I feel sorry for those honest hardworking officers that have to deal with that S#!T everyday. Typical charlotte politics tho'. So afraid of the "race card" that they turn a blind eye to all of this and act like notihing is going on. I have no doubt that Rodney and his gang" will be long gone by the time anything is done. Long enough for CMPD to lose it's national reputation as one of the best departments in the country, and leaving charlotte to wonder "where did all that money go". Remember when he is gone all those positions he filled will be vacant as well.Unbeliveable Charlotte WAKE UP. Since he has fired everyone and hired his "friends and family" it will look like a ghost town down at CMPD when he is finally gone.!!LOL

Anonymous said...

Cedar,
I want to personally thank you for your vigilance in reporting on all these transgressions going on at the CMPD.

It seems you are the only one with a viewership that is not "afraid" and has any interest in exposing rodney monroe and ray for what they really are, and for exposing the ways in which they are
taking the CMPD apart bit by bit.

For the life of me, I don't see how City Council and my fellow citizens can continue to ignore the direction rodney and ray are taking our cities Police Department.

It does break you heart to see all the hard working officers being taken for a ride by these two opportunists.

And if major foster wants a quote, how about this old tried and true one, "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive". Oh, and another good one, "What goes around, comes around". Karma is a bitch!

Anonymous said...

From what I hear "on the street", word is when Rodney is out and about, he tries to explain away the crap he has done...he is good at the spin.

And he can say that HE personally did not do the things, but that is only because he has RayRay or another of his minions do it FOR him, that way he has no accountability for it. He knows how to cover his ass like the Pro at it he is.

If he did not PERSONALLY tell someone, then he can say "I know nothing".

He is a sly one, and people are buying it, hook, line and sinker.

It's such a shame, really.

I am surprised his nose is not ten miles long.

But the things he has permitted to happen on his watch will come back to bite him in the ass...And that deny, deny, deny is a bunch of BS.

Like when he said "My daughter doesn't need my help to get a job"....he NEVER answers the question.

But he does spread his manure pretty good!

Anonymous said...

Well, he hasn't had a major screw up in a few days...his "entourage" of PR people must be getting through to him....it took a village.
But he will screw up again, egomaniacs always do.
He has just learned he can't be quite so "public" with his indiscretions in Charlotte...people are watching him, closely.
He has just taken his show a little more "under cover".
He is still getting his perks and bullying his way through the ranks, just a tad bit quieter.
He and RayRay have learned to not "strut their stuff" so publicly.
But nothing has changed with those two from what I hear.
They are still screwing up the CMPD.
Boy, when they move on, the stories and evidence that will emerge, so I am told. It will blow people away.

Yea...my "informant" from the cmpd has not complained in a week or two it seems like....I wonder why? I never ask questions really but usually i'm bombarded by horrible stories on a daily basis. However, that has subsided now....things must be leveling off? or what? I am guessing Foster also has checked herself?....haha j/k...shes a crazy female..she will do whatever her unintelligent thoughts tell her to do without second guessing. I love the religious quotes Foster...you definitely show signs on competence and intelligence... Does anyone know the ex-boyfriend who's car she went aped shit on? It would be fun to hear what he has to say..... I would have to go ahead and say most criminals (that rod has done such a good job getting off the street) have higher standards than team Ray-Rod....at least the drug dealers don't front and fake like they are doing the right thing...like Rod attempts to do...

Anonymous said...

Yes, I think someone finally got through to Rod/Ray that you can't go around publicly and just do whatever the hell you please because you wear a badge and are the "chief". Especially when those things you are doing are scummy because you lack integrity and a moral center and don't really know the difference between what is appropriate and what isn't.

That is the reason for damage control mode, you are right.

But Rod/Ray won't be able to keep their egos in check for too long...their personality disorders will shine through.

And, really, what else can you say about foster?

Here are some CHRISTIAN QUOTES from the bible that might come in handy on your CMPD signature:

"The authority by which the Christian leader leads is not power but love, not force but example, not coercion but reasonable persuasion. Leaders have power, but power is only safe in the hands of those who humble themselves to serve."

"A bad man is worse when he pretends to be a saint"

"The mind of him that worketh ill is not always corrupt; but the mind of him that defendeth evil is ever corrupt."

"The devil can cite scripture for his purpose"

"Anger is one letter short of danger"

"He who angers you conquers you"

"Lying is the acme of evil"

"The self-righteous never apologize"

"There is nothing progressive about being pig headed and refusing to admit a mistake"

"A man wrapped up in himself is a very small package'

"I believe that in the end the truth will conquer"

There is a new message on Major Foster's e-mails now........and it looks like Captain Freda Lester has joined in on the e-mail brigade. Her e-mail message was a complete paragraph.
I am sure she has to be getting support from above (No not God) to feel comfortable in attaching the type of comments she continues to attach to her e-mails.This type of behaivor would have been quickly addressed and appropriate action would have taken place in the old CMPD. All of this inmaturity and racial tension is going to take years to reverse.

How will the "higher-ups" feel if people start putting agnostic or atheist or muslim or buddhist or sikh "phrases" on their emails?

I mean, they tolerate, or maybe even encourage the ones currently being posted....so they would have no right to say anything about others posting their beliefs? Right?

God, it is all so very childish and immature, and most of all, TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL AND INAPPROPRIATE.

And you are right, would not and should not have been tolerated.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude ... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you ... we are in charge of our Attitudes

And lester doesn't even bother to put it in quotes or attribute it to its' rightful author...

I swear it is so childish. As a citizen of Charlotte, NC, I am embarrassed for the CMPD.

But you know the really hilarious thing about all this sig line "stuff"?

The hilarious thing is that foster, lester, rodney and ray are here, reading Cedar Posts. And that they are letting it "get to them", as witnessed by the only way they can answer.

If any of the things said on here about foster are not true, let her have the strength of her "convictions" to address each allegation individually on here and deny them, 'cause we know she is on here reading them. (Or better yet, let her submit to a polygraph and answer direct questions UNDER OATH, with her hand on the bible...yea, that's the ticket!...and rodney, too!)

Immaturity reigns supreme at CMPD!

Integrity and brains have definitely been relegated to the "back seat" from what I am told!

And the people who stand by and tolerate this regime are as guilty as the ones creating this mess.

Anonymous said...

All the people on here that claim that the people (within the department) standing around tolerating this mess are just as guilty, I have a question for you. Would you speak out against Rodney, if you knew it would permanently destroy your image? Whoever speaks out against rodney will be deemed as racist for the rest of their lives by the citizens of charlotte. They will no longer be accepted by the Citizens on Charlotte. The Citizens of Charlotte LOVE this guy....there is not a single white officer that is dumb enough to speak out against rodney. Most of these guys are going to have to get jobs after they retire...being that "racist guy". To speak out against Rodney would be a permanent career ender. Your a grade a MORON if you do not understand this. Curt Walton and City Council is who you should direct your anger at. Would you like to be known all over Charlotte as that racist Prick that tried to get the Savior Rodney Monroe fired????!!!!...I doubt it...

From what I hear, there are many African Americans on the CMPD that do not like rodney any more than the "white" officers. Would they be branded as racists, also?

This IS NOT a race issue, it is a competence issue.

So everyone on the force is willing to let the CMPD be dragged through the mud and slime because they are afraid of being branded a racist?

Don't you think when the real truth about rodney becomes public knowledge that all of the "racist" crap will be zeroed out?

But it is going to take people within the dept. to actually call him out.

Repeat after me, City Council hired Curt Walton, Curt Walton hired rodney....see? They are a bunch of wusses, afraid of their own shadows.

And not all of the citizens of Charlotte buy rodney's bullcrap, he has developed many cracks in his veneer, people are just not buying it anymore. Not even his huge PR Team can fix it in the long run.

And if you mean by ALL the citizens of Charlotte, the black community, you are wrong on that, too.

From what I hear, many in the black community KNOW his crime numbers are a joke. They are not stupid. And they LIVE there, for god's sake, they see it every day.

So FEAR will keep this guy doing what he is doing? Pathetic!

I predict that people who are willing to stand up to him and speak out will eventually be deemed as heroes.

If you have lived your life as a racist, you will be seen as a racist. If you have lived your life as a fair, unprejudiced person of integrity, you will be known and seen as such.

touche on must of your points...actually not really...i still strongly believe a white officer with a right mind will just keep his mouth shut. Or he will be ruined for sure. I do not see how you can argue that and have a sense of reality.....and you must be speaking to a different black community then the one I know of...i honestly have not heard of any complaints by citizens, just the cmpd officers i know of (who are black/white/hispanic) and the angry white citizens on this blog....the citizens LOVE this guy...you need a reality check man. I actually had a huge group of old people at my church tell me how much they love Rodney and how he gets his image out to the people...despite from what i have told them from my VERY VERY reliable source..they blew him off also..Rodney has WON...until the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER starts running articles things will not change...completely insane to expect an officer to stand up to the chief..And BTW the only officers that could actually do it are the DC and they are all white or stuck so far up rodney ass they cant see whats directly in front of them

There are so many rumors flying around at the moment, it's hard not to be hit by one.

It seems rodney is looking for a scapegoat and is willing to go to great lengths to pin "leaks" on anyone that has disagreed with him.
It's like the old saying, if you are not "with" him (i.e., agree with every wrongheaded decision he makes), then you are "against" him (i.e., you will be vilified and portrayed as a "leaker").

From what I am told, it is just amazing the lengths Rod/Ray will go to to crucify anyone that disagrees with them. The TIME ALONE THAT THEY MUST SPEND ON PLOTTING THEIR REVENGE AND RETALIATION IS MIND BOGGLING!

It continues to amaze me, just one concerned citizen, that more citizens have not made it their business to investigate and find out the simple truths I have been told....how about the MEDIA???

Well, Rod/Ray, it seems more and more honest people of integrity at the CMPD are becoming unafraid to speak up and disagree if they think you are wrong and someone else has a better way of doing something.

It would seem that your stranglehold on these good people is lessening. It would seem that they may not be able to stand idly by anymore and sacrifice their integrity and the integrity of the CMPD to you two.

With these two, there is no Metting of the Minds, there is no "consensus of opinions", there is no respect for someone elses' opinions, there is no willingness to even LISTEN TO anyone that may have a different/better way of approaching a problem/situation.
It is Rod/Ray, out on the golf course, making all decisions without any input from anyone else, without ever acknowledging that listening to people that have been at the CMPD, know the lay of the land, might just be of considerable help.

People, from EVERYTHING I have heard, they DO NOT GIVE A RATS ASS!

So we can only hope that the open dissent will commence, that people will lose their fear and regain their self respect and band together against this tyrant.

The ass kissers should seriously rethink their "positions".

You talk about people being remembered as "racists" for speaking out against rod/ray?
How about the people that blatantly and consistently go along with everything he says, when they know in their hearts he is wrong, but say NOTHING.

How do you think they will be remembered when rod/ray are gone?

Anonymous said...

Well, we can agree to disagree, Rod/Ray has NOT WON, not by a long shot.

To concede that they have is a defeatist attitude, and I still have hope that what someone said is true, that good people are starting to "rebel".

The hatred and hostility that I hear voiced against those two is unprecedented in all the years I have lived in Charlotte and been a "concerned citizen".

And it IS NOT just from members of the CMPD.

And I don't think that just DC's can make a difference.

It is amazing what can happen when people start taking a stand, amazing.

Okay, the newest, and probably most outrageous rumor that I have heard so far (and believe me, 99.9% of the "rumors" turn out to be 100% true).

This rumor is that Rod/Ray THINK they have figured out who is giving Cedar Posts information.

And they are burning him as badly as they did the Robbery Detective who was moved out of Investigations and moved to third shift in a Division.

My one and only question to Rod and Ray would be:
If you are conducting yourself with the utmost integrity and are doing nothing that crosses the line, and I'm talking about a moral/ethical line, too, not just a "legal" line, then why should/would you worry about ANYTHING "getting out"?
WHAT WOULD THERE BE TO "GET OUT"?
IF YOU ARE DOING NOTHING "WRONG", IF EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING IS FAIR AND ABOVEBOARD, THEN WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU SO CONCERNED ABOUT?

If this doesn't get the attention of the mainstream MEDIA, then I will consider just throwing in the towel.

If these two vindictive little asses get away with this and no one investigates, I just give up.

OMG, if they are allowed to get away with this, if they are allowed to try to ruin someone's career and good name, then the CMPD is truly doomed.

As someone said, imagine the waste of time and energy and taxpayers money that was spent on trying to find this out, IMAGINE? And imagine what kind of human beings, what kind of childish, immature idiots that are supposed to be running a PD, would do this?

ONE MORE TIME, IF NOTHING UNDERHANDED IS GOING ON, THEN WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

They are just so afraid that the things they have done/are doing are going to be substantiated, (and from what I am told, they would be if investigated), that, from what I have heard, they are trying to, once again, scare people into silence.

Where was all this indignation when Gina Cook went berserk on her girlfriend? A deputy chief actually went to Raleigh on her behalf! Darrell was no saint either to have let that slide. CMPD's downward ethical spiral started a long time ago...
