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.
