The Airport Police Holocaust

OpEd by: Anonymous
It appears the eradication of the, formerly known as, Airport Police by the Third Reich is in full swing.
Can you imagine what these officers must be going through? First, they suffer through the invasion, occupation and hostile takeover of their homeland, and then secondly, to find out they aren’t viewed as equals. Lastly, they fear that they will lose their jobs with CMPD given the spiteful move by the airport leader to make Charlotte Douglas an Airport Authority.
All these officers ever did, for years, was to keep the airport employees and customers safe in a professional manner.
The power struggle between City leaders has been nothing less than despicable.
The City of Charlotte encourages each employee to show leadership, have team work, initiative and be dependable. If the director of the airport and chief of police were evaluated on this scale they would receive an unacceptable performance rating worthy of dismissal. 
No group has been more deeply affected by this childish power struggle and spitefulness then the airport police officers. In spite of all the stress they must be going through, they continue to do the job they were doing before the tanks came rolling in and with pride.
As in the 1940’s, people notice the injustices but do nothing to make it right.
What can the officers say without fear of being silenced?
Nothing, they have been silenced by fear and now all they can do is stand back and quietly watch as the graves are dug and the extermination begins.
At least the airport officers have access to one thing that the Jews did not; lawyers and the United States Federal Court System.

Neither RoMo or King Orr have any morals and never any scruples about sticking to staff, officers or each other.

The entire mess is a Gift from Curt Walton. Worst City Manager ever.

To be so great, CMPD hasn't shown me a thing.

I can't understand the power grab, or Patrick Cannon saying CMPD is better than the airport police.

I thought all airport cops were CMPD at least at one time. I can't see sending beat coos out I the airport seems kinda specialized.

This City vs Jerry Orr conflict is such a Charlie Foxtrot for the employees out there not just Airport Police that if anyone on Charlotte City Council had even the smallest sense of right and wrong they would have fired Jerry Orr months ago.

So what is the real story out at the airport? Inquiring Minds what to know.

Anon 625, what do you want to know? What is the question?

The real story is Jerry and Herbert Judon were all about control and covering up problems at the airport for so long that now their lies are catching up to them. Herbert Judon has told so many lies (unexplainable trips to Asheville, playing dumb about airport police hiring, covering up a former female officers misdeeds then get her a job as Jerry's secretary making over 100% her market rate, allowing a former male officer to take a position as the "badging supervisor" knowing he didn't meet the qualifications and that he lied about having a degree, etc...) Jerry's greed for power has brought all this on as well....he micromanages everything at the airport - you can't fart without his permission. So how is that he plays the "I didn't know anything about it" card and people believe that? Jerry and his attorney's have researched the airport authority mess for years prior to its announcement. He knew and conjured the idea up to Rucho. Jerry is crooked as the day is long. Just a matter of time before someone starts looking into the expenditures from the "airport discretionary fund" and other hidden cost centers at Jerry's disposal and putting two and two together. Oh and someone ask how Operations Manager Jimmy Mynatt was able to have Jerry buy him a police interceptor vehicle using a police contract? Myantt is nothing but a wannabe who is heartbroken his 1980's "control room" is no longer responsible for dispatching police.

I hear that after the CMPD took over that the former female officer (secretary) was given a listing of all the airport officers by Judon and asked her to mark which ones were still "loyal" to the cause (the airport) and could be trusted to come back once Judon and Jerry get their authority. I also hear that thin skinned sgt Greg Wilson has been promised a major leadership role in the airports new police force, assuming the authority goes through.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a hit list to me and to trust her is very unwise. She is known for creating "problems"; but, everyone believes she is the wronged party and would not dare upset her for fear they will become Herbert'Judon's next target. Herbert tried to fire one person over bringing the truth about her to light - but like always Herbert is a failure and couldn't even get that right.

No matter how wrongheaded this airport fiasco was and continues to be and no matter how villainous the major players might be - the use of and comparison to the Holocaust and the actual history of the Third Reich and equating the two is over the top and plain wrong. I would have expected better.

7:29 I hear ya, and thought the same thing, but one man's holocaust is another's barbecue.

And the point is that the airport officers are being exterminated.

Thank god the airports dispatch center is no longer in charge of commucations for police! We are all much safer for it. None of those folks have received any emergency training, telecommunication training, or even no what questions to ask people calling in emergencies. Oh and don't forget Orr was so cheap he had the airport police officers sharing their radio channels with maintenance and janitorial staff.....I'm sure the DCI auditors would have loved that convicted felons and other thugs could hear vehicle and driver information while t hey were scrubbing toilets!

Imagine working at a place where you gave 100% even when the department only gave you 50% back. True, the Airport Police Department had several flaws but you came in, got your check on Friday and it was what it was. Now the great and powerful CMPD has "absorbed" the department and tells the officer's they are not good enough to work for them and were told lie after lie from the beginning. A sworn police officer for a NC police department has to re-apply for their job and attend a full police academy in order to be a real CMPD officer. City Council should be ashamed of themselves for allowing Curt Walton to make this reckless decision that has affected the LIVES of people and their families. Now Jerry Orr will have his Airport Authority so he can have absolute control again which leaves the officers to have to re-apply for their job all over again, if they were considered loyal to Jerry that is. CMPD’s response to this Airport Authority is they will find a job for the officer’s somewhere in the city when Jerry kicks them out because we certainly could not work in a district or wear a real CMPD uniform. This political warfare is absolutely pitiful because the shit being thrown at both parties is falling on the heads of innocent officers. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU!!!!

Some of the extermination is needed. Some of these officers didn't have proper backgrounds done and were rubber stamped by Aviation HR manager Babette Boone who doesn't have a clue about anything. Greg Wilson did most of them and didn't even have the investigative experience to even think about visiting the applicants former departments to check their files. It was basically if the apllicant had a valid driver license and wasn't wanted in NCIC you got the job - only disqualifier then was to have more knowledge than Greg Wlson, he didn't want anyone that could show that he is a compete moron ot worth of a badge. Thank god he was caught lying by a CMPD captain and was no longer given any responsibilities.

Anonymous said...

@ 8:05...some extermination is needed at most police departments, including CMPD where as Captain Hummel stated "are the only one's that count for lateral entry". Give me a break!

Anonymous said...

I doubt that the airport background check was any worse than the background checks done at CMPD. Which for the most part is not much of a background check at all.

Just the same, Monroe is an idiot not to hire current airport officers.

But what does he care?

All the reports are that since the "take over" cops are fewer than ever before out at the airport.

And what if the airport is spun off do the new and improved officers have to re-apply to work for Jerry?

Bottom line, this can do nothing but reduce the effectiveness of LE at the airport. Not something the mainstream media will take about.

Anon 7:29...expected better what? For officers to take it up the ass a little quieter. Thats for your rescue.

Cedar,
It appears there is no difference in Airport management and CMPD management personnel. They are in it for themselves, they screw everyone they can when they feel like it, they persecute anyone when they feel like it, and they all lie.
If all City of Charlotte department heads are of this caliber there is some work to be done.
Its good to see the true information coming out about airport operations. These guys dont hold back. Names are flying.
Good for them.
Too bad cmpd folks wont do the same.

Key airport players who should be fired by the city for supporting the authority:

Jerry Orr
Herbert Judon
Mark Wiebke
Jack Christine
Haley Gentry
Leila Lahbabi
Lee Davis
Greg Wilson
Shane Nantz
Jimmy Mynatt

They have all conspired to ruining CMPD being successful at the airport. They are just if not more guilty for this mess than anyone.

Officer Steve Brown - I see you have been mighty busy on here. If you had spent as much time on your marriage as you did your blog posting -well you know.....

Enjoy the academy, but the rumor around CMPD is you will be dropped soon. Your a liability, untrustworthy and a snitch. Sounds like a bad combination for a keystone kop.

@ 8:37... You forgot the worst one of all. B.J. Johnson, a.k.a., former airport police officer who be-friended officer's only to get information to pass onto the Orr group; While all along saying very untruthful things about officers for her own personal gain. Hope she is as transparent to those guys upstairs as she was to the officers because they seen right through her LIES!!!!

Nice hit list, but isn't that like all of the airport cops?

So Steve Brown is the ring leader of the Jerry Orr coup d etat?

Or he is part of Jerry's Gestapo?

Just two things:

1.) Keep it civil.

2.) Shortly after the Tisdale death I posted an outline of how the young man made his way onto the KBOS bound aircraft. Even pointed out where he most likley came over the fence and entered the airport property. Anyone ever check it out?

These is a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Why let the airport have this kind of control to where they tell the city what they are going to do or not do. If Orr would have once did what he was told and what he said he would do than this would never be happening. He was told to hire 18 officers which he agreed but never did.
Orr has said for years that he was going to have HIS authority. Orr has had all these secret meetings. I wonder if he would still deny it if recordings would surface and if so would anything be done. If anyone else in America would tell there boss what they were going to do or go behind their back to sabotage things so he can take

Next Orr promoted Herbert Judon who has ruined everything he has been involved in. He has caused problems with the police. He has made promises that he has never kept. He makes deals in the back office.
He destroyed the badging by killing moral and setting terrible example of any work ethic people may have. He gave a job to Tracy Miller, a former police officer, the badging supervisor job. He does not meeting the job requirements. You were required to have a four year degree. Miller does not have a degree and supposedly fabricated his documentation. Judon was told but as a normal practice let it go and do nothing but slap the face of the other badging employees that put in for the job, that met the requirements, that have been doing the job, unlike Miller. I believe the comment about the hit list. Former Officer Billie Johnson is a ring leader in all the gossip and stirring the pot. She lies so much she can't keep on stories straight. Between the hit list, her being out for one reason or another, and stabbing people in the back I do not know how she gets her work done and we are paying her for this.

Why is he allowed to act this way, oh I know because no one does anything to Orr.

It feels like neither the airport nor CMPD care what happens to the employees. The merger of Charlotte PD and Meck County Police is the same functional merger. They were forced to merger. They all keep their pay and rank. NO they all did not have Charlotte PD rookie school as it seems now is the main focus to determine what happens with the airport officers who have been told that they are all one department but truly are not. Why has their not been a story done on what happens to the officers? CMPD is the best option that could have happened as far as accountability and safety for the traveling public, but their is still a lot of work that needs to be done.

The airport cries the cost and crime is up bull crap. The crime has always been their but when you control how it is reported and what is reported then everything does look good. Now that it is being reported correctly and how it is required by law to be reported then it does look like an increase. If the airport would give access to the old reporting system then I bet a new outlook would come to the top. The cost is up some I'm sure but it has been under staffed and has been operated with little to no equipment. Orr and Judon try to paint this bleak picture but they are the cause of all the problems that exist.

Haley Gentry and her Gestapo force are no better that the rest. To take pictures of officers eating and blow it out of proportion is low. They waste time and money gossiping supposedly working from home, doing personal business in one day than the entire city put together. They shouldn't cast stones. I bet if the officers would sneak around and hide in the plants and take pictures they results may be startling. They shouldn't cast stones when you live in a glass house.

Since the ‘big boys’ took over at CDIA, the Airport Police Officers have had a mentoring agency to finally look up to. Our vehicle stops associated with sexual assaults has declined, as well as, oral sex at pizza parlors, countless domestic violence’s, lying cheat and cover ups, oh wait…oh it’s coming back to me now…that was CMPD.

CMPD is the worst company I have ever been forced to work for. Everyone passes the buck and no one takes responsibilty. Shameful!

Anonymous said...

Orr needs to just stand up and tell your employees what's going on and don't lie and say you had nothing to do with getting the authority involved.Because Orr and CMPD can't get along and play together like civilized adults all aviation dept. employees may now be affected by this pissing match when the authority takes over.

Lets tell the real story:

1. BJ Johnson only became a player because she had to do LT/SGT Derricks Waller’s work because he was so incompetent.

2. Derrick Waller only became a player after his embarrassing departure from the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office because CMPD Captain (she was over the airport police at the time) Teresa McNally loved her some Derrick Waller, looked past his sex parties and pot smoking and promoted him to LT

3. Steve Brown only became a player because Waller and his drunken side kick Tim Parker (who Waller got promoted by possably sleeping with CMPD CPT McNally) needed an inside man to keep them informed by monitoring the airports emails,( on everyone). Additionally conducting background investigations on new hires so they would only hire: sex you up Waller’s and I’m a drunkard Parkers friends.

4. Now we get to the fun part: CMPD CPT McNally retires Chief Monroe puts another female CPT in her place, Waller goes to work right away, “bam” we got pizza or maybe a compromising situation between an outstanding senior CMPD official, who certainly sets the example and a guy who was thrown out of CCSO for the same thing.

5. Then in the other corner is BJ, she had been doing Waller’s work and making him look good for a long time. She got along fine with CMPD CPT McNally but was a threat to the new Cpt. Soooo the CPT starts treating her like K9 residue, BJ gets made and turns coat on Waller and Parker who is down in South America with their new wana be Steve Brown (who was probably cheating on his wife, that’s why his divorced) and had no clue BJ was spilling the beans to the Airport Admin on the whole gang and all the dirty little lies and scams they had be hatching since being hired to include the mistreatment lying on other officers to get them fired, the sneaking behind Airports Admins back to get CMPD in the door so Monroe could grab some of Orr’s money.

6. Let me know if you what me to keep going to see how the story ends?

Anon 12:43, aka, BJ Johnson, you poor misdirected person. Anyone who knows you, knows you are full of shit. You always were the shit stirrer. For a mother to sink so low as to lie and say her son, Will, has terminal brain cancer just to get sympathy for others and be able to take off work when she wants without question is truly sick. You really should get some help for your bi-polar disorder. We are all somewhat praying for you.

Waller busy sexing up every chick with low self-esteem on duty in his privet room in US Customs:
US Airways Chick #1 C Concourse manger

US Airways Chick#2 FIS re-check and part time badging chick

US Airways Chick#3 bi polar Indian cart driver

CPT McNally was busy convincing the Airport Admin that I’m a poor excuse for a LEO Waller was the second coming of Christ and every other Airport Police Officer, less Parker and Brown were buffoons and keystone cops and should all be fired.

B. Boone who wanted so bad to believe McNally, allowed herself to be led around by the nose to the point Waller was attending every city meeting representing the Airport Police, attending special management classes and running off any police officer who could see through the smoke and mirrors.

Steve Brown received his city/airport owed take home car and went to work collecting information for Waller and Parker.

CMPD CPT Hummel comes in as the newly divorced, just lost weight Airport Port Police Manger and falls into McNally’s shoes but with a twist; she doesn’t care who knows about Waller and her. At least McNally tried to play it off between the school girl giggles, cups of Starbucks coffee and the lets do 2 hour lunches off the airport property.

Funny thing is other police officers attempted to inform Airport Admin all this was going on, but because of their dislike for anyone who wasn’t like them and willingness to believe a CMPD CPT, they were led down the road to CMPD take over.
