Often it takes a Veteran Officer to put it all in to perspective. The author shall go unnamed but CP is pretty sure his thoughts are shared by all who stand behind the badge that represents the thin blue line.
I will begin with saying that I don't know what I would have done had I been in Officer Kerrick's shoes on the night he took a man's life.
Neither could Captain Mike Campagna!
That pencil pushing office poug with a big brass name plate and a chair that fits the shape of his ass, would not rate a pimple on a real Police Officers ass! I never knew him to do anything other than promote himself as he has done by making such bold statements against a fellow Officer.
This entire situation was created by an uneducated (proven) racist lump of whale crap Chief of Police who denied Officer Kerrick the right of a complete investigation.
The minions quickly lined up behind him and now we have a real travesty of Justice!
If Officer Kerrick had in fact violated Departmental Policy why has he not been cited to Civil Service for termination? He is still on unpaid suspension and it would appear to me that as quickly as they were to charge him with a crime why did they not be as equally in a hurry to distant themselves from him by attempting to fire him. Could it be that they did not have grounds to do so as clearly they don't have grounds to pursue a man slaughter case.
They so badly botched the handling of this matter that there has been a great conspiracy to get a conviction. The Mecklenburg District Attorney excusing himself from the case, it being dumped on the State Attorney General who is highly political, two Grand Juries, a law suit settled before the trial and who knows the closed door scrambling to conspire in this god awful mess.
Now we have an Officer who was out there doing his job and was faced with making a split second decision facing a trial for his life, and I do mean his life as a dedicated Law Enforcement Officers life is that of the oath taken to serve and protect!
The people who orchestrated this mess are not worthy of the position they hold and Captain Mike Campagna is an absolute disgrace to the Law Enforcement Profession!
I need to close for now as I am headed off the Mecklenburg County Court House to show support for a real Police Officer.
That is the least I can do!
