Major Trouble at CMPD

Seems a couple of CMPD Majors have found new ways to get into trouble.

First up a certain un-named Major has apparently stepped into hot water while unknowingly passing a fake $100 dollar bill. If reports are true this Major, when confronted with the bill not clearing the “pen test” simply paid with a couple of legit Jackson’s and failed to report the problem to anyone until several days later.

This might explain yesterday’s visit by the United States Secret Service to CMPD Headquarters.

In another rumor concerning CMPD Majors:

As if the Carolina Panthers weren’t having a bad enough season, one CMPD Major reportedly Larry Blydenburg was spotted snagging players gloves and hats from the team bench after Sunday’s 34-3 loss to New Orleans.

Apparently when challenged about the items hidden in his jacket the Major replied “Everyone does it”. No word on an arrest, suspension or termination. But Cedar Posts really doubts there is much of a market for Panthers memorabilia on eBay these days. No harm No foul but oh so stupid!

Cedar Posts suspects Blydenburg will be booted from the CMPD Reserve Unit, though he can't be fired as he is already formally retired from CMPD.

And the embarrassing hits just keep on coming. You make over $100K/year as a CMPD Major, and resort to stealing used gloves. Despicable and inexcusable behavior, but typical under this administration.

Cedar as I hear it that's the deal. But who know RoMo will never tell the truth so your guess is as good as anyone's.

The trouble is because RoMo tries to cover this shit up it always looks bad.

I guess we'll see what the real media turns up.

From what I have heard, and been told, these two things are absolutely true.

But I, too, fear they will just be covered up.

The morale busters just keep on coming.

And why didn't the unnamed Major, why didn't she have a report taken at the time it happened? Surely she knew that was the proper protocol??? Just another example of poor, poor judgment, and the feeling of entitlement that seems to permeate people in rodney's inner circle...that the rules don't apply to them. Hell, they just make up the rules as they go along, then change them later, or better yet claim "they didn't know".

For someone in her position, surely she should have known the proper thing to do.

This is what happens when people of questionable qualifications and ethics reach command staff at this level, and it trickles down.

I truly feel sorry for anyone that works for CMPD under this regime.

Why am I not surprised? My money says the Major has an S and a P in her name but it could be a P and a S.

Anyone surprised? Oh wait none of this is true if you ask CMPD so never mind.

"The fact is, the citizens of Charlotte deserve to receive accurate facts and information, especially as it relates to the law enforcement agency that serves them." quoted from CMPD and rodney.

Well, if you are going to wait for facts and information, HONEST information and transparency from rodney, do not, I repeat, do not hold your breath.

The FACT is, more facts are outed in this Blog than in the last two years of rodney's reign since he has been here...starting with, oh, his bogus degree. How's that working out for him? Has he gone back and gotten any credits like he said he was??? Is he a "Phoenix" yet?

And you're darn right the citizens of Charlotte deserve the true and open reporting of events....but that is just NOT going to happen with rodney, he and his henchmen are incapable of telling the truth.
When you are doing things that are questionable, it WOULD be hard to tell the truth, wouldn't it?

Are you kidding me?

If the Major regarding the "money" is who I think it is, just how many screwups is she going to be "allowed"?

Why isn't she on third shift in the Watch Commander's Office?

Oh, yea, I forgot........

If any of this was real the media would have picked up on this. I'm not saying it didn't happen but they can't be this stupid. Can they? If one of the local stations or the Observer picks it up I'll be shocked.

The mainstream media have already shown us they will NOT question Monroe, I mean look at the bogus ass interview Gantt did! It was ALL pre-determined questions and rehearsed!

Monroe couldn't tell the truth if his has was sitting in the fire!

But I bet you will see some news in the next 6 months if the peeps I have been talking to can get one or two confirmations! trust me, I refuse to sit around while our corrupt leaders eat us alive and bankrupt us!

The mainstream media won't touch these things.....too afraid of the blacklash.

I have gotten it from at least ten different reliable people....these things and a LOT more are oh so true.

It's coming, maybe late, but it's coming!!

And did you SEE the video of V.F.???
Was that MADE up? Hell no, I believe my eyes!!

And yes, they ARE this stupid!!

The Vicki Foster video was priceless. Someone needs to post a copy of it or email a like to CP.

Wait a minute here. Are you telling me a Police Major was trying to pass a counterfeit 100 dollar bill? Seriously?

JAT said...

I'll defend a Local Paper -- sort of.

They no longer have a full-time crime beat reporter. Haven't since very early on in MNI's lay-off cycle. As a result a Local Paper has no shot at developing scuttle-butt stories. None.

Cedar Posts said...

To be clear this information is from multiple sources, all unknown to Cedar Posts. In other words at this time it is complete hearsay.

However the common thread is that the person in question "unknowingly" presented a counterfeit bill.

There is nothing to suggest that this person knew the bill was fake.

What is at issue, is the person, a CMPD Major, did not report the incident immediately and CMPD as well has not publicly reported the same.

This is just another example of a continuing pattern of deceit within CMPD’s inner circle. This lack of transparency and accountability as well as the removal of the on line significant event log and 911 calls for service is unacceptable.

It is Cedar Posts opinion that this decorum of deceit begins at the top and is a troubling sign of the inner workings of our once proud police department.

So says CP

More alarmist bs from nut case Cedar Posts. I'm sure the two people Cedar is pointing the finger at are black. So make that alarmist racist bs.

I don't understand why you people read this garbage its only purpose is to discredit a fine man who has done nothing but worked 24/7 to make Charlotte a safe place to live.

Cedar you just need to STFU!

Is that you, Vicki? LOL

What you said could not be further from the truth.

What he has done is divide the department decisively along racial lines with his bias and blatant favoritism, it is what it is.

His goals have been self serving, to say the least. He doesn't have a clue as to how to be a true leader of men and women.

Discredit a fine man? He has lied from the moment his feet hit the ground in Charlotte.

Maybe you need to just, as you said, STFU. No one is holding you at gunpoint to read the blog, are they?

Anonymous said...

Looks like RoMo idiots read this blog 24/7 I missed the Foster meltdown the other day but what I hear was she completly flipping out over Fox News quoting Cedar Posts.

I've seen her to go off over the smallest things so I can expect that Fox giving props to CP made her blow her lid.

Wish someone had Foster on tape that MVP video was is the reason Monroe couldn't make her DC and why the XO job was created.

These two Majors should be fired but they won't because they are part of RoMo diversity program.

From what I have been told, one Major is African American, the other is a white male.

So your BS about it being about race is just that, BS.

And rodney is the one that has made every promotion, every lateral move, about race. He has an agenda or promoting African Americans whether they are deserving or qualified is not a factor in his decisions. He sees only color when it comes to promotions, with the occasional token butt smoocher is thrown in to try and make it appear as though that's not what he is doing.

Look at his "inner circle"......

With his penchant for not being transparent and not being truthful,and for so blatantly showing "favoritism" he has destroyed whatever credibility he ever had.,,if he ever had any.

Anonymous said...

The fact that he has an "inner circle", and everyone knows who is in his "inner circle", is troubling by itself.

But he does, and everyone that is in "it" believes themselves to be "bulletproof". What I mean by that is they believe they can do just about anything and not be reprimanded or suspended, etc. They "rule" with arrogance and impunity.

And the sad thing? This fact has proven to be true over and over.

Really, is this any way to run a PD?

Why do you all feel the need to sit around and post blogs on such nonsense. Take time out and think about your actions. What purpose are they serving? Do you have the BALLS to approach any of the officers that you are blogging about? Let me guess, NO you will not because you are cowards and this is the only way that you feel important. Get a life and research your facts..

Don't be jealous because Chief Monroe is doing a good job in Charlotte. Find something else to do with your time.. Oh I forgot you are unemployed and this is your job. Or maybe you tried out for the CMPD and did not pass the psych test. Or maybe you did get on the force but couldn't make it and the MAJORS that you are always talking about out-shined you... I think that is it you are all jealous or racist... Which one? Tell me so that I will know who I am dealing with and how I need to properly communicate with you. I am so glad I found about this site,,, it time for the Citizens of Charlotte to start posting some positive comments about our CMPD instead of this ignorance.

Anonymous said...

Ok so we are onto a new topic today. But I see the same targets are in play. Who is man enough or woman enough to sign their posts? Why is it that you people have so much time on your hands to talk about our public officers? I bet when your house is getting robbed, or you are getting the shit beat out of you, the first thing you will do is call 911!!!! But you have the nerve to put them down. It just doesn't make any sense to me. How about you join the Citizens on Patrol and make a difference? Or volunteer, be a part of the solution and not the problem

So you want me to STFU,,,, And you think I am Vicki,,, You should be so lucky.... Vicki is on the police force so she has certain limitations where I on the other hand have nothing to loose at all... So how about you make me STFU.....

All I know is that Foster went nutty on Fox News or WCNC and that in her crazy rage she forgot who she was screaming at and forgot the camera was rolling. So wait for it. It will be a riot when it comes out.

Anonymous said...

Joke is on you word is she'll be asked to resign.

The burden is on the SS to prove she knew it was fake but as a senior high ranking police officer she should have known the bill was bogus.

It's a catch 22 she's a bad cop for passing it knowing it was fake or she's a bad cop for not knowing it was fake take your choice.

She's going down. In cuffs or not she's out of a job.

@ 10:15 you comment about RoMo seeing only color with promotions, then why is it that with 1800 officers you only have 13 black Sgts out of 175? A total of 38 blacks from the rank of Sgt to DC?
Go back and look at the promotions since Monroe has been here. The same as it always has been dude.

No one is talking about the good officers of CMPD.

The Officers of CMPD are swimming upstream with rodney at the helm.

Well, it looks like since Fox gave Cedar credit for a story, rodney has his minions posting on here left and right.

Seems he might now think Cedar has a bigger audience and credibility, so he is calling out the troops to circle the wagons.

@ 4:19.. How do you think I found out about this site??? Duh, it was on the news... If I was in the inner circle of Chief Monroe would I not have begun posting on previous blogs? I have reviewed this site and it is pretty silly.

Anonymous said...

@ 4:13.. I understand one part no one if talking about the GOOD that the CMPD is doing. Does all of this really make any sense? When I heard about this website being a concerned citizen I wanted to check it out for myself. But it just seems like alot of gossip. Where are the facts? If an officer tried to pass a hundred dollar bill do you really think he or she would still be on the force? I have more faith in the CMPD than that. This site is just really disturbing to me. I know people have the right to there own opinions but when it could potentially effect a person's livelihood or reputation shouldn't they be innocent until proven guilty? I want to find some reason to believe this stuff but I can't. Is there any documentation or anywhere that I can go to look confirm what has been said? Or am I to just take someone's word for it. They could just have a vendetta against someone and post a blog and then it is done. Could this be done to me? Or you? How would you feel it were you? Or your friend or family member. I am just a concerned citizen that feels we have bigger issues than spreading rumors. Thanks for listening.

Except for the fact that 99.9% that is posted on here about rodney and his "staff" is true.

Why would Vicki get so irate, why would it bother her what it said on this "silly" Blog?

Because it brings to light what is really going on.

And people that operate in the shadows don't like the light, in any form.

Not rumors.....just wait for it.

And Cedar has said repeatedly that the Major didn't know it was counterfeit when she tried to spend it.

The problem was she did not have a report taken on the spot....that is what she should have done, especially in her position.

So to be clear, she wasn't trying to pass counterfeit money, but she didn't do what she should have at the time, that's the story as I am understanding it.

And no one is refuting the fantastic job the Officers of CMPD do EVERY day.

They are out there protecting and serving every day, and putting their lives on the line every day....and I don't think anyone disputes that.

So please don't make this about the vast majority of Officers that serve on CMPD......and we thank them for their courage, their honor and their service!

I figured I'd step into this fight.

On the record I work for neither CMPD nor Cedar off the record I work for a Local News Org and not Fox.

Over the last two years Cedar has sent us info. Most checks out and he has been nice enough to let us break some of the news. i.e. Marcus Jackson.

I know for a fact that he has been dead on about Jackson, the Fuel Pizza BJ, and others. We checked out his Monroe exposed post and found it 90% dead on but not newsworthy at the time.

I've seen the letter from Foster's lawyer and didn't move forward because it wasn't addressed to Cedar and he wouldn't let us know the sources, otherwise we would be all over Foster.

Finally I know for a fact that CP is considered a thorn in RoMo’s ass. That the simple words Cedar Posts make veins in the Chief’s head pulse and if you interact with Monroe you know what I mean.

And that my friend makes CP a hero to I'd guess to 8 in 10 who wear a badge at CMPD.

Just saying...
