County Commissioner George Dunlap Forgets the Names of Fallen CMPD Officers



Mecklenburg County Commissioner and "retired" CMPD officer George Dunlap has a short memory. In a widely circulated email Dunlap asks where to find the names of CMPD officers killed in the line of duty.

Commissioner, all you have to do is look at the wall at CMPD's training academy. As a "retired" CMPD officer you could also look at the back of the memorial badge you obviously didn't bother to purchase. You could ask a CMPD officer to look at the back of his/her badge or just visit the CMPD web site, which is here.

Commissioner Dunlap's email:

Subject: RE: Police Week and BBQ

Sally, would you please send this message out. I would be very much appreciative. Additionally, If you know how to contact the families of the deceased officers or know who can, I would appreciate you letting me know. Thanks!

On Tuesday, The County Commission will adopt a proclamation in support of National Police and the sacrifice made by our deceased officers. You are all invited to attend. Additionally, I would like to recognize the families of deceased officers who lost their life in the line of duty. If any of you are in contact with the families, please extend to them this invitation to attend the County Commission meeting at 6:00 pm, in the Government chamber, on Tuesday, May 17, 2011, for this recognition.

Additionally, I would like to read the names of the deceased officers at that time. If any of you have that information or know how it can be obtained, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

George Dunlap
County Commission
District 3

He should be ashamed of himself on so many different levels!

I wouldn't take up on behalf of George, but my reading of his email seemes to me that he is too lazy to get information himself. He also seemed to want to find out how to reach the family of the officers and did nit know how to do that.

EOW is End of Watch....

I think that Byers and Orr are to be added this week. It seems ashame that Dunlap would leave out the other Sheriff's Deputies, county police officers, DMV officer and the FBI agent killed here.

Personally I think George is well intended. Cut him some slack.. please.

I could add some comments about Ebonics & his 'community' however I think your readers understand these systemic handicaps.

IMHO George is far superior to Vilma who is indeed a racist.

Why were all the previous comments deleted???? That's never happened on this blog before.

Folks, Blogger went down Friday and that is why all comments are gone. Cedar did not delete them. Blogger did because they had to do a complete restore.
