This morning the Rodney Monroe saga goes down a dead end as the Observer makes an effort to get up to speed on the Marcus Jackson cover up. Gary Wright pens a story titled: "Police at odds over Jackson incident: with a sub that reads "Mint Hill, CMPD clash over fired officer's episode with ex-wife", and it all seems a little over the top.
Reading the body of the story things are hardly as sensational, but it does shed a little light on the Monroe spin machine.
From the Observer:
Mint Hill police are taking issue with a suggestion by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police that they made a mistake in how they handled an incident involving former CMPD officer Marcus Jackson.
In September, Mint Hill police were called to the apartment of Jackson's estranged wife after Jackson allegedly pushed his way into her home to retrieve some belongings.
Jackson, 26, is the CMPD officer who has since been accused of sexually assaulting six women while on patrol.
Mint Hill Police Chief Tim Ledford told the Observer Monday he disagrees with the way CMPD has described his department's actions in the September dispute between the Jacksons.
The rest of the Charlotte Observer's story is here.
What is missing, is how was the Jackson vs Jackson episode relayed to CMPD? The answer to that question would have justified Wright's salary for the week.
He would be better served taking a drive up to Vinnie's at Mountain Island Lake where he could find a key player in the Monroe regime hiding his shame in a bucket of rocks.
