The Charlotte Observer has glossed over CMPD's failure to "vet" Marcus Jackson. The in-depth story on the front page of today's paper, details the department's failures yet fails to address the core issues in CMPD's recruiting process or uncover the facts.
From the Charlotte Observer: The hiring of police officer Marcus Jackson, who is accused of sexually assaulting five female motorists, has revealed flaws in how the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department screens officer candidates. You can read the entire story here.
Buried in the local update on the back page of the local section is the rather uninformative "Fuel Pizza" story.
The "CMPD Mega-Saga" continues later this week when Charlotte City Council again takes up the Marcus Jackson personnel file.
Expect the Observer's Kevin Siers to have fun with the Fuel Pizza story.
