Hopefully the damage is not irreparable but I fear it is. He has promoted too many sycophants and made too many race related promotions. The damage wil be there for years to come.

Bellamy for chief !!!

Good riddance. Take the whole command staff with you.

I'm glad his RACIST NIGGER ASS is finally retiring. Hopefully city council will pick a better leader for CMPD. But I doubt it, as they have their heads up their own asses. Monroe was never a police leader, just a RACIST POS.

Anonymous said...

WOW, been hearing for 6 month he was gone before the trial so when it went wrong he wouldn't have to deal with the aftermath... frankly didn't believe it. Never would have guessed he was that big a coward. Direct that case the way he did then punch out before it blows up in his face. Good Riddance!!

Anonymous said...

This Dept. Use to be great until this raciest POS came along.. He destroyed the budget first year being there, killed the morale, and turned it into a race war.. If you're not black, you're not going anywhere. The entire group of ass kissers (Command Staff) needs to go as well..... I hope this fucker pulls out into traffic and gets creamed by a semi..... That would be a call that would have a delayed response. Thanks for f'ing everything up asshole.. That Officer he railroaded that goes to trial in July I'm sure appreciates it too..

Smart move to get out before the Kerrick trial. The only DC I could stomach is Gallant.
Most brass has lost touch with reality. They should make them do ride-alongs once a month to remember where they came from.

Anonymous said...

Couldn't agree more. A real man would've at least stood behind his decision in throwing Kerrick under the bus, instead he bows out like a coward! Cause he knows he'll get found not guilty and all his "brothers" are gonna burn the city down. Go ahead and bow out, the real men/police will take care of cleaning the shit up.

Goebbels, Goring, Himmler, Bormann...they were all just as guilty as Hilter.

Praise the Lord! Only time to mix church and state. This racist idiot has destroyed the department like the moron on Pennsylvania Avenue has done to this country. Similarities???? Hopefully on July 2nd this place will START a positive turnaround. Sad to say that there are too many minions and Lieutenants that followed his intmifation tactics to keep this place from getting better. What a horrible 7 years this has been!

Chief Monroe is a leader! Sad to see him go. He's made CMPD what it is today.

Anonymous said...

11:27 must have been a sarcastic comment, or by one of the lying losers he has promoted. Either you're drooling over the thought of promotion or you are simply stating he has made CMPD into a place where good officers watch their backs and idiots and criminals are promoted.

Anonymous said...

No! It was not sarcastic! The city has benefited greatly from his knowledge and experience. Its a tragic loss. I am a better officer for having served under him. I'm sickened by the remarks from people that can't get promoted.

Anonymous said...

So you have been promoted under this corrupt regime that lies and covers up crimes they commit--of course only if you are the right kind of person for them to cover up and if they believe they can get away with it ?

Congratulations to you.

The damage done to Charlotte and to CMPD under this loser will continue for years after he takes his reward money for Taser or Information Systems or whatever other place he sent the most Charlotte taxpayer cash. Or a "federal" job where he can do the same for more?

If you believe what you said, you are a pathetic officer. Lying about crime statistics doesn't mean lower crime. And claiming it's because of you and your "leadership" when every major city has seen the same alleged crime reductions during this time period is just as ridiculous.

The damage he has done will outlive him.
The internal workings of CMPD have been destroyed.
There is NO oversight...Rodney has had his way with CMPD and promoted people of little or no character in positions of power who will do more to destroy CMPD.
No one trusts him or his henchmen/women.

He is a manipulative, vindictive, self promoting little man who cares nothing for the men and women at CMPD.

And the ones that have gone along to get along, those who have stood idly by and allowed him to get away with all the corruption share in the lack of integrity, lack of honesty,lack of transparency, and the enabling of Rodney to destroy CMPD...they are just as responsible.

Bellamy.....seriously?

He is lost at sea, out of his element, has NO leadership skills and reached his level of incompetence a LONG time ago.

Anonymous said...

Gallant is just another back stabbing piece of crap, sold his soul for his promotion and jumped on the "RodneyTrain".

Anonymous said...

And let's not forget Eddie Levins.
Don't know if there was selling of any soul involved because it seems like he has been very willing to tow the line for a long time.

Agree with the comment that the ones who know and watch and remain silent (which is nearly everyone) are just as guilty as the initial perpetrators of crimes and misconduct.

Anonymous said...

It's looking like the interm chief will be Putney...of criminals with badges fame.
The Bellamy quotes above are surely sarcasm.
He maxed out intellectually as a mediocre IA Sgt. You can polish a turd but at the end of the day, it's still a turd.
He does win overachiever of the century award however.
I can't think of anyone major or above worth the position.
Maybe Anselmo. He's always seemed fair and generally respected. Smathers? He's a possible also.

Surely the city manager will hire from outside the city. Then all bets are off .... Might get another Monroe.

Smathers is NOT a leader.....unethical., too.

Wow with all the negative comments I just read, I hope the city of Charlotte start with a new Chief and a new police force. What ever happened to professionalism. Using the N-word and others using the Lord's name and calling the man an idiot. If I was a policeman black, white or any other race I wouldn't want to serve with any of you. As long as you serve the damage is still being done.

Anonymous said...

yes. Every single person within the organization or outside who knows of unethical acts and crimes but doesn't report it is equally culpable. As you are for the end results: what would you say to the getaway driver in a holdup where the other guy shot the clerk? They get charged just the same. There's no "but I wasn't the shooter and I didn't agree with it" defense. Charged. Convicted.

Do the right thing. If there were ever an EASIER time to speak up and provide names, dates, documents, it't now.

Hey you with a badge, uphold the law!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Put away bad cops no matter what their rank. Stop acting like cowards or quit your job so someone brave and interested in doing things legally can take your place.

Pathetic.

Anonymous said...

Ok... here's one.... Anyone see the news this morning about the naked guy at Charlotte Douglas??? News reporting it took 40 MINUTES for the Police to arrive on D concourse.

Now, without re-hashing the BS about the lawsuit, does anyone here see this being a problem? Talking to you Captain Herring!!! How about the staffing issues the officers have been screaming about? How about the way the 9-1-1 calls are routed, first to airport operations, then downtown, then to TSA and then dispatched. What if this had been an active shooter?? I hope the media expounds and investigates the response time on this and looks into why peoples egos get in the way of proper policing. Perhaps if Rodney and the rest of the command staff would listen to the troops on the ground they would understand there are serious issues that need to be addressed.

A quote from this morning's CO article about hiring a new chief from within CMPD. "This time, Monroe said, the hire should be from within."
If the city hires from outside CMPD, the new chief may dismantle Rodney's empire.

Well, the time has come for the ungrateful bastards that infect this small minded town, who hated the apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him). The apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him) has most graciously decided to step aside. The apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him) has listened to the groveling (the mayor himself cried a river of tears to no avail), but in the end will leave. It is too bad. It was only yesterday that The apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him) lifted this open sewer of a city onto his broad shoulders and SAVED it from the clutches of crime and disorder. During the apostle Rodney Monroe’s (peace and blessings be upon him) time here many have suckled from his nipple and now he leaves his dogs to continue. Think of all the apostle Rodney Monroe’s (peace and blessings be upon him) accomplishments! More dogs on the streets, towers on every block, single-handedly saving the city from the grip of protesting hairy-palmed hooligans, and arrests, arrests and arrests like never before! This city will never again see the likes of the apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him). One can only hope that many of the uptown buildings are renamed after the apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him) so this city will always remember the vision of the apostle Rodney Monroe (peace and blessings be upon him) and his legacy.

Why CMPD will take years to improve : when you have the likes of chuck Henson, Bruce Bellamy, pj Wilson , J Blow, Cecil Brisbane , etc etc in positions of authority , you gotta wait till they retire out before progress can be made. Unfortunately more incompetents will just take their place so we are all DOOMED.

CP doesn't normally comment on posts or comments.

I'll make an exception in this case.

City or Airport CMPD Officers have been doing a tough job while the chain of command went to dirt around them.

Yeah, Airport guys got it easy most the time. Metro puts it on the line every night like Eastway and now days Hickory Grove.

Yes South Charlotte is a skate job mostly dull highlighted by smart mouth rich kids and every once and awhile a marriage blow-up.

But let us get one thing straight, no matter your 20 wearing the badge, makes you a target and the thin blue line has never been thinner thanks to Rodney.

Number of CMPD Officer I personally know who have retired, or just plain quit is troubling.

Guys who left to go to work for DEA, or Treasury, even Boarder Patrol, others who are zeroed in on a date that they can walk is bothersome.

The myth of "Hands Up Don't Shoot" has swept the nation and sparked the minds of the psychos among us.

As my grandmother used to say "You boys best get along you never know when you might need the other".

One other thing ....

Let's be careful out there.

Anonymous said...

Amen to that. I'm just glad romo was around long enough to see the airport officers get paid!! Now he can leave with his tail between his legs! We win!!

Anonymous said...

On point, Cedar. A badge is a target no matter where you are. Many misguided people think LEOs are an occupying force, and therefore must be engaged.

It is a fine line--you must CYA and do the same for the men and women you serve with. But, as you do that, you must hold yourself to standards and enforce those same standards on those who have your six.

Some use half of the equation to become a blue falcon and climb the ranks, others seem to embrace the other half and only act to preserve the tribalism that is this profession. The full package must be delivered; friendships may fall, and some careers lost. But I'd rather see careers go down the tube prematurely because someone messed up rather than the careers of those who have done nothing wrong cease because they are fed up with all the BS.

As Cedar said, stay safe out there. But know how to keep your organization safe too. This may mean sending information through indirect, untraceable channels to facilitate change. Or it may mean going through direct lines to make those tough decisions regarding those around you.

But know this--whichever you choose, even if you choose to say nothing, you are making a choice that will characterize local police work. The example given by May 20, 19:37 is a good one. Don't protect this guy the poster is speaking of, or anyone like him.

I don't care if he's going to lose his house and his wife if he gets the boot--I just don't care. He's old enough to know better and that's all there is to say about it. That dumb stuff is for when you're young and before you're a cop, if at all.

You can't expect the crazies in the general public to respect you (or not try to assault/kill you) if you tolerate this type of stuff. It reinforces the stereotype of corruption, which lends itself to racism, coverups, etc etc. This is why you must act, even if covertly. Use back channels if you don't trust the snakes in IA. Use Cedar, use other local off the grid journalists, or use MCSO.

You don't throw your coworker under the bus because it's "the right thing to do," you do it because you are preserving public trust in your position, and decreasing the chance that you'll be all alone with sh*t going sideways, only to find the one citizen that can help you shrugs his shoulders and walks on by due to noticing the uniform you are wearing.

You all know where the line is. "Looking out for someone" is way different than "concealing a crime/concealing the fact that the individual is morally unfit to be an officer."

Use your head, stay safe, and look out for the long game too.

Lets all pray that Putney gets the nod for top job or that the city decides to hire from the outside. Putney is the only D/C with any amount of integrity or common sense. If you put the other four D/C's in a room together they would not be able to count to 10 collectively without taking their shoes off. It's a very scary thought that any of them would even be considered. Please Mr.City Manager. Help us!!

It was Putney's statement last fall mischaracterizing CMPD's rank and file as criminals with badges. ( we have too many criminals with badges). It was stated at a news debriefing.

This was after an arrest of a CMPD officer.

Anonymous said...

Putney?? Seriously?? Mr. "I'm a cop" who has made a grand total of 15 felony arrests in his illustrious 18 month "cop" career??? He's just a big a joke as the rest and has the same bully style of management because he thinks he's a big bad black man. Why do you think he hasn't been hired by all the other places he's applied? They saw through his BS. The only positive thing he has ever done was get Lisa Shores fired! He's a douchebag. Besides, Claire Fallon and the others have asked RoMo to stay now and he is considering it. Whenever he leaves Claire, and the new mayor, Michael "I shoulda been the DA" Barnes will install Putney so be careful what you wish for.

Anonymous said...

We do have too many "CRIMINALS WITH BADGES" within CMPD. Problem is, most of them are not exposed and dealt with correctly.

Every single person in charge of CMPD, including all the current and past DC's, knows exactly who the criminals are and participates in covering it up until they don't have a choice. That's not leadership all the other CMPD members can be proud of. Or learn from. Or should follow.

The fact that Council is asking this corrupt Police Chief to stay indicates the entire CMPD organization and all of Charlotte are in trouble.

Anonymous said...

He was spot on with that statement. There are a number of individuals in the department that have criminal records or have been arrested since employment and are still working. That is reflective on the department as a whole, especially when they get into trouble over and over again and face no consequences. Hopefully he can change that culture when he gets the job.... Criminals should not carry badges.

Anonymous said...


IF HE WERE ANYONE FIT TO BE CHIEF, HE WOULD HAVE ALREADY TAKEN CARE OF THE PROBLEM!!!!!

Do you seriously think that nobody in the department has responsibility to report, investigate, prosecute and fire criminals working in the ranks???? THAT is what's wrong with CMPD. That is why Rodney Monroe is still chief. That is why an outsider who isn't corrupt (if there is one) needs to be hired.

Anonymous said...

To anonymous 11:07

You seem to really like Putney. Well let's just take a look at Putney for a moment. Please help me with my spelling, but does anyone remember Haggi Maroo? Just so happens that she was the one that D/C Putney was having a sexual relationship with before she ended up leaving, (maybe she got fired, I can't find the email). If anyone feels the need to jump in and correct me, I will not mind. So Maroo leaves and was placed on a "Do not hire list". Next thing you know, she is back as an officer. Now Beverly Ashley (Deddie) an officer working at the Academy realized that Maroo had been placed on the "do not hire list" and went to D/C Graue about the situation. Beverly Ashley is no longer at the Academy, but she is back in North Division after she got her pick of where she wanted to go so she would keep quiet. By the way, B.A. Ashley is no saint as well. She was removed from the CMPD lake unit and North Divison, after assaulting an officer, to a less desirable division. So should D/C Putney really be looked at possible pick for top cop of Charlotte or does he need to be investigated for other reasons. D/C Graue and Officer Ashley probably should be investigated too.

Anonymous said...

Her name is Mahroo Grant now. It looks like she graduated in the last class and was assigned to South Division. Did Putney have anything to do with her being rehired? And how would it look for a chief to be involved with an officer? I thought he was married. But May 19 11:03 did say all the DCs have failed marriages. Is she the reason for his?

This is a very juicy rumor, Putney did all that to get someone rehired? Really? Sit back and think about it, it's laughable.

For the record: There is no such thing as a "No Rehire List." Either you left in good standing for rehire, or not. Mahroo left the dept in good standing. There was no "leaving under fire," no issues. She left to get married and be with her family. Period.

I commend her for wanting to come back to this crap hole of a Dept. I commend her for successfully completing the Academy 2X, with a 2 yr old, alone. It is a pleasure to work with her and she is a great cop, and even better person. She has her MBA, tons of management experience and could be doing anything she wants, career wise. She chose to be here because she loves being a cop, something the rest of you should re-evaluate.

If any of you cowards want to know about her, go to her directly, she will be happy to set the record straight.
