Perhaps this is why?
Assult with a deadly weapon, assult on a female, DUI, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Many of the prior arrests have rolled off the MCSO on line data. These are only the adult charges.
Charges for tonight's adventure will include charges, three counts of assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm, two counts of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious, assault inflicting serious bodily injury on a law enforcement officer, second-degree kidnapping, assault on a female and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
That is if he survives. The cost to taxpayers will be staggering. We are already well into six figures, Should his injuries prove not fatal society is on the hook for years of physical therapy special needs medical care for life, special prison care should he not ever walk again.
The above photo should have looked like this:
Twitter was a buzz last night with breaking detail and messages of support for CMPD Officer Andy Harris. Anyone who has been around CMPD knows Andy he's a somewhat Omni Present Force in the department.
So it seems interesting that while most of Charlotte was tweeting support for CMPD one city council member remainded silent. LaWana Mayfield's tweeter account at 2:00 am.
Couldn't help calling out Council member Mayfield. Her response speaks volumes. Even 12 hours later nothing about Officer Andy Harris.
