CMPD Pledge Fund Continued

Need some help with the ground work on the pledge fund case. Consider this the crime of the week on PD Live.

Who was really in charge of the Pledge Fund? And why did a certain Major suddenly resign with only a couple of years left to retire? Anyone care to fill in the blanks?

How many total officers have been wacked by this Ponzi scheme?

Ed Williams the hire back detective in cold case has ALL THE ANSWERS. He was in charge (the treasurer), retired, made sure he jumped ahead of everyone else and got his money, then came back for more then it all went in the toilet.. jwilliams2@cmpd.org

Since schools are closed, let’s have a math lesson...

1500 officers contribute $5 a week to a fund.
15000 x 5 x 52 = 390,000
1500 officers x $10 = $15,000 payout
$390,000 / $15,000 = 26 payouts per year funded

If more than 26 officers retire, the fund is short and payments are delayed.
If more than 26 retire the next year, the delays get longer.
Not a Ponzi scheme. Simple math.

BUT, were people being paid the right amounts?
Were people who didn’t do a full 30 getting the full payout?
The answers to those questions are what we really need to know.
The pledge fund was destined to fail when more than 26 retired but did it fail sooner than it should have?

*1500 x 5 x 52 = 390,000...my bad. Wasn’t so simple I guess

OKAY IDIOTS, I WILL ONLY TELL YOU THIS ONE LAST TIME ON THIS BOARD. THE CMPD HAS HIRED AN ATTORNEY AND AN ACCOUNTANT TO DISPERSE THE REMAINING FUNDS. THEY BOTH GET 1/3 OF THE CUT, SO THERE IS 1/3 OF THE FUNDS TO BE RECEIVED.

I DO NOT KNOW THE TOTAL SUM, NOR DO I KNOW THE AMOUNT OF RECIPIENTS TO RECEIVE PAYMENTS. THIS IS ALL I KNOW. PLEASE MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIVES. I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER STORY ABOUT THIS ON THIS BLOG. I WANT TO SEE A STORY ABOUT THE AIRPORT DIVISION STANDARD DAY. DO THEY ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING AT ALL? WHAT ARE THEIR PRODUCTION STATISTICS?

Not a Ponzi Scheme??? Really???

Do some googling on that my friend... When is the last time we only had 26 people hired in a year? That's an academy class and we run 3-4 per year... A system that takes in payments from 1500 and can only pay out 26 is, by definition, a ponzi scheme... If you paid into it, get over it and just accept you got taken and move on with your life.

Got to love all the cops on this board complaining about who got their funds stolen. There's a reason the force doesn't hire those who score high on their civil service tests, and a bigger reason that these sheep got taken to the sheering.

What I have always thought was fucked up was how officers get injuried on duty and go to the hospital. Very few people actually care that the officer was hurt. No one donates money to their medical bills. But if a cop doesn't get their paycheck or a pledge payout...everyone goes crazy at Ed. Thirst for money shows the true motive of the officer all along, and that is not a good thing for anyone. Many of these officers hasn't really worked hard in 10 years before retirement anyways.

Whats the deal with all the mandatory temperature taking? Not a doctor but you can have the virus without symptoms for 14 days. By then because of their foolishness most would be infected, missing work or worse yet dying! How about reducing human contact? Makes more sense. No more roll calls, hanging out inside building/offices, training events, group activities or worst yet, reporting as a group for temperature taking. Now is not the time to reinvent the wheel. Also don't look to command staff to keep you safe on this one. Be safe out there!

Stay on point people, I happen to want the true info on the Pledge Fund. Yes, I got screwed out of mine in the 11th hour. Has anyone else that got screwed contacted an attorney? If so, do we have a case? I personally think that we have a case against the city and the police department.

1137,

The reason Estes looks horrible is because he knows what is coming. The corona virus will deter so many prospects from becoming police officers, which will destroy the recruiting system that CMPD has in place. Also, the corona virus will cause 100+ officers to resign this year. Once a few people get sick, the domino affect will take place. Third, officers will use this virus as an excuse not to work or resign. Those cops never wanted to be here anyways. Finally, the brass has no excuse not to go out and assist will service coverage.

Estes sees the writing on the wall.

Here is my take on this Police Pledge Fund topic.

Most of the cops in their last 5 years of work basically get paid to do nothing. There are several veterans that collect pay checks for longer than 5 years. It is like stealing tax dollars from the civilians. So why are some many people complaining about this 10k pledge money? The answer is that other people got the 10k, so why not them? The other people sat on their asses and stole their pay checks. Two wrongs make it right in the eyes of many at CMPD.

The chief of police said "So many other people have done it", in regards to his double dip scheme with RNC. It was total scheme, but he said other people have done the same thing, so why not him? That mentality is shared by so many at the CMPD.

Thoughts everyone?

You can thank Medlock for the yearbook fiasco. That was just one of his last major F@#$ ups before departing the dept. Just one.. That red faced screaming idiot left his shit stain on this dept for years. Together with his butt buddy Romo left this place a mess and now we are paying for it. We saw it coming then and called it. We will continue paying for it for many more years with the idiots they promoted to "command staff". The folks on the upper level now couldn't lead a group of girl scouts at a cookie sale. Do yourselves a favor and just fly low for the long term. It's going to get worse before it gets better. Until we get some real leadership this place is doomed. If I didnt have so many years invested in this dept I would be seeking employment elsewhere...

Anonymous said...

Getting back on track here. The Police Pledge Fund was offered as a voluntary supplement to bridge the gap of employment separation to retirement. The funds were drawn from weekly pay, after taxes on your paycheck. That makes it a federal document. For those who say get over it, let it go, it’s lost in a Ponzi scheme or “suck it up, buttercup”. You are stupid. That is your money, earned and
paid for after taxes. To let the excuse of, “it’s gone”, is a lame tactic to scare you. Man up, get a federal, forensic payroll lawyer involved. Your low wages are bad enough. Are you are going to let someone take that away from you? It’s robbery without the weapon.

What a sad state. No one gets together and fights. We all complain and moan but no one sticks together. By the way, not even part of the fund, just pointing out the facts. Remember this, a wage garnishment cannot happen without authorization. That’s Federal law.

Anonymous said...

I think the reason that no one has banded together is because the ones that retired and got screwed are few in number compared to the ones still employed. The ones still employed and were contributing are too damned scared to say anything about it. They are afraid that if they join together in a lawsuit, the department will find a way to burn them. Sadly, they are probably right.
The officers that did a full 30 years, retired, contributed for the entire career are the ones that truly got it up the ass. We are the ones that need to join forces with an attorney and go after our money.

Most officers have PPE at this point. Go thru your COC or to Property, and they'll give you the sergeant's name who has them. Most of the people bitching now maybe didn't have them the first week or so, but now all have them and in fact are the ones refusing to wear them.

8:35 FALSE. Property control & warehouse had NO masks to give out TODAY when asked. There is no virus killing alcohol hand cleaner either. Everyone should be wearing masks in our line of work, both in the public & around co-workers. Start taking this seriously. Protect yourself! That means staying out of the hot zone academy, training classes, lunchrooms, elevators etc.

COMMAND STAFF: U need to SUSPEND academy classes. We see the recruits and academy staff daily. They are NOT practicing social distancing and are elbow and elbow everyday. YOU are placing these recruits and staff at RISK. Then the staff go to local restaurants and spread whatever they have incurred that day. Send academy staff to patrol divisions that are short and send recruits on some days off.

I believe they were trying to let some office staff work from home to delay the spread of this virus. Someone in command complained and now those employees are back in the office. Everyone was told that they would be going back to patrol as soon as all the patrol units become infected. Total lack of planning by command staff. They plan on all of us getting this virus and DO NOTHING to protect us or our families.

It’s fend for yourselves. Wear masks if you have them to protect yourself but we were only given one mask so good luck. I would stay away from the office gyms and the academy.

This is a very interesting case study at CMPD.

I’ve been around this place for a while now (20+) years and have seen many come and go and have seen all types of people in command staff roles. I don’t have stripes on my shirt, I don’t have a gold badge I simply answer calls and try to make sure I get home safe everyday, that’s been my motto for over 2 decades now. However that creed has become increasingly harder to do as of late and it starts with the top, those making descions for boots on the ground who haven’t actually had thier boots on any ground aside from the second floor hallways for years. Command staff stopped caring about the heart and souls of this organization (the men and woman on the front lines) a long, long time ago. What is more important to them is how does the public perceive us and what are we doing to gain trust in a city that averages 100+ murders a year. It doesn’t matter who is up there, once that command kool aid has been sipped common sense and street smarts goes down the toilet along with those dumb food truck lunches they love so much.
Take care of each other out there, get hole to your families safe everyday and know that while command is really only worried about padding thier retirement checks, some of us recognize the hard work and effort we put forth everyday and are grateful for it.

Cedar... you gonna mention the miscarriage of justice today at the abortion clinic on Latrobe? Who is the gutless officer who made those arrests? This was a peaceful prayer meeting with the occupants 6' apart... if the opening of this murder clinic is considered "essential" then the folks praying and assisting women in their times of need must equally be essential. I know some of you will scream... "well, hey.. that is the law". "Their breaking the law". Maybe the evil command staff is now enforcing laws unequitably like it does their SOP and policy. Are we officers arresting the dude loading 15 bags of mulch into his truck at Home Depot? You can't say that mulch is essential, or any of the other folks out and about at the hardware stores. Point is, this is just an excuse to persecute Christians or anyone who dare speak out against the killing of innocent babies under the guise of "women's choice". I for one will take a stand against this. Let a sergeant tell me I am to make an arrest for this sort of non-sense... see what my response will be.

Anyone who thought command would do ANYTHING to protect their people is delusional... Other agencies were modifying their response policies and CMPDs talking heads were ON TV telling everyone that we were going to every call.

"Public Perception" is all the third floor cares about and it's all they ever will care about. It's no wonder they've been bleeding officers since Kerrick. Those who aren't close to retirement but have too many years to be idealistic are finding other jobs. I remember before I retired, the guys at recruiting would talk about how they had 1500 applicants per class. Now it's more like 100. What's hilarious is that CMPD remains 200 officers short and can't draw flies but they still treat their people like nameless, faceless uniform fillers who are easily replaced. My friends tell me about this bullshit 5 day quarantine policy at CMPD??? Love how the CDC says 14 but CMPD says 5 is fine. Another great example of stupidity in command since RoMo set up the policy of "never promote anyone who is smarter than you." I had such high hopes for Patterson. She was my Captain and was legit. I guess it's in the third floor water or something.

Look guys this is very simple, talk to officers in other departments, not just in this state or S.C. Ask how they have been prepped to combat the virus, ask what steps their command has taken to protect officers. I have spoken with various friends from throughout the country. Chicago has demanded officers stay in hotels paid for by department and aren’t supposed to be going home to families, another buddy of mine works 1 day a week and and is on call for two other days the whole week, and he is patrol, still gets same pay. There is a constant trend we have all seen with command staff here in Charlotte. Just remember if it comes down to you or them, they will sacrifice you first. Everyone needs to have the same goal in mind, MAKE IT HOME. We are under prepared and under equipped. If you don’t have a mask, ask for one, if they can’t get you one, don’t try to be Superman, it isn’t worth it. Whether it comes to taking this order seriously or not, just remember how fantastic the court system of Mecklenburg county is, that is gonna be dropped faster than any other simple possession charge, don’t waste your time.

If you have a sick child or spouse it can be horrible on you if your the one that gives it to them. Protect yourselves, this will pass.

The virus isn't what you need to be worried about. It is the unconstitutional executive order. People will grow tired of being told they can't go to work or go out with their friends. Americans will only take the BS so much. It is the civil unrest that is coming that you need to be worried about. The latest information I have found is there are only 212 known active cases in North Carolina. That 2,500 number that is being thrown out is total cases since they have been keeping track. So 212 people keep the North Carolina population of 10,000,000 out of work, out of money, and dependent on a government check of $1,200.

Sounds like a lot of folks have forgotten about separation of religion and state. You swore to it when took the oath and placed your bible thumping hands ON the book. If you are true believer then you would recognize the importance of that. If not, then you are just another Benny Hinn....

A-remove religion from this job and story. The arrests on Latrobe were legit. Freedom to assemble and speech does not TRUMP the stay at home order. It was a group of morons that deserved what they got. Had they been at home, they would be home.

B-No one cares about airport Officers they are security guards with a city patch. Get over the stupidness. All those afraid, go there.

C-why do many get to work from home but Patrol hits the frontline?

D-Harris Teeter employees Get an extra 2 hour pay per day worked (confirmed). Circle K clerks, $2 more per hour (confirmed). CMPD? Nothing. “Be thankful you have a job”.........

E-Look at all the barrier robbery/spit screens businesses have now. Patrol, nothing!!!

Keep bitching and moaning, don’t come together. No one in patrol should be exposed to anything less than an emergency!!!!!! BS calls need to be curbed. Thanks command! You are the best with all that lack of experience you have. Enjoy that “ social distance”.

We need to rehire some of the old school command that have long since retired to come back and run this place. That would be money well spent by the city... They knew about leadership and how to treat the troops because they knew the "Job". They truly cared and even took time to actually listen to the troops....

Where does it say in the United States Constitution that Roy Cooper's Executive Order is a higher authority? All courts are closed so no one can fight the Executive Order to prove it is unconstitutional. 2307 will surely fall in line when the firearm round up is ordered and the dictatorship is installed.

Thank you for your service, and god speed in your second life.

3:50- Melton and I went to academy together and retired a few months apart. They cut off payments right before we retired.

What always scared me about CMPD was when Crystal Cody started collecting data on officers for her little science experiment with the University of Chicago. She was collecting data from supervisors about officers' UOF and health. They were developing some method of removing officers from their jobs due to various "scientific factors". Remember that when you go to see the shriek. They are just collection information on you for research purposes...my ass.

Does anyone on here think command staff reads these comments? If they do, do you think they give a rats ass? I’m just wondering. They must know more than half of the department think their decisions are epic failures... why not heed the advice of those boots on the ground? It’s either they don’t know they’re failures, they don’t care or they have an agenda. If it be any of those, someone close to Putney please remind him that he’s working with taxpayers money not his own. We’re 200+ officers shy of where we need to be with staffing and dropping fast. Response times are not what they should be and they allow themselves (the city) to be the brunt of lawsuits their bound to lose. Outstanding job!

Anonymous said...

Command staff absolutely reads the posts on here and they absolutely don’t give two shits about what is said and discussed. To them it’s nothing but disgruntled officers who have either been screwed over by the morons in IA, officers who were passed over for specialized spots or promotions. What they don’t realize is that over 50% of the Dept is disgruntled and adding dumb learning modules to my success does nothing. I wonder how many command staff actually complete all the state training and Dept requirements or who can shoot above a 70% at this point. Long story short...nothing will change, they don’t care about you or your family and well being.

If someone at CMPD tests positive, then CMPD is required to inform you via email that someone tested positive and location of the employee's job.

If they don't do that, they are open to potential lawsuits if someone else becomes sick.

I understand that we’re in “crisis mode” but if the city can violate the law whenever they want it gives legitimacy to protestors at an abortion clinic

The FOP has served themselves up to the potted plants in the past with little to no results. They are essentially powerless... You are much better off to just find a good hiding spot and do as little as possible in order to protect yourself, and your future.

Anonymous said...

Sanitation is not getting hazard pay, WSOC reported they were getting 3% then retracted it. The FOP is who asked the mayor/cmpd about hazard pay and your chief said he had all he needed and the mayor wants people to bake you cookies. The FOP is trying harder than they have before, but there is no collective bargaining or union, so it is not as easy. If you have issues, email the FOP so they know about it so you can help. The FOP stays active on Facebook, so follow them to see what is being done.

The mayor really cares about cops, so she is building a bunch of new section 8 communities for the cops to get attacked at and injured. She let the chief retire and double dip, and the state had to step in to stop her. lol

You know that Braxton Winston is fighting for the cops, with his current divorce and aspirations to be a full time employee somewhere, someday. Forget about the riots. He is changed man. lol

Lawana Mayfield is our #1 fan, with her constant support of the cops during investigations and training budget discussions. lol

Anonymous said...

Currently, UE Local 150 has demanded double time hazard pay for City of Charlotte sanitation workers.

Come August when the talking heads expect us all to give our best and put on a good show for the RNC, don't forget that Mayor Lyles "declined to take a position" on hazard pay for essential city employees.

If you're referring to the Police Pledge, they cut everyone's payout, so that alone doesn't equate to retaliation against one officer for suing the city.

Anonymous said...

No, the pledge fund was a voluntary decision by many dumb officers that didn't understand with less people contributing, the less payouts. Melton was just earning a living and about to collect a pension, and he got fired for nothing. He can't even get his pension.

I think it is total bullshit that hirebacks get brought back for nice jobs like K9. Those jobs should go to the boots on the streets that have been working toward those jobs. Could you imagine having 10 years of experience and losing a job opportunity to some worthless hireback that keeps a murder victim's clothes in his office like a total weirdo?

2:05. We’ll just selectively enforce the law by arresting folks attempting to counsel women considering an abortion but allow folks already receiving a pension to earn more money thereby taking jobs from people who actually need it. I mean how much more hypocritical can we get? I mean besides Ol’ Cecil Bisbon getting his weasel greased on camera and don’t nothing happen to him.

^^ isn’t that funny, especially how he is now in a role to take massive shits on officers and select whatever idiot he wants to do his dirty work. It never used to be that way, officers were protected by the Dept and everyone looked out for each other. That is a thing of the past and if the Dept can find a reason to hammer you, trust me they will, it’s happens all the time. Can’t wait to be done with this place.

Why is a hireback going to work the crime scene dog? What happened to the CS handler? Also has the CS dog ever found a body yet? This all sounds like a scam to me. If Darrell already knew he’s being hired back how is that different than what the state said was a no go?

I for one am glad that Cecil is in charge of IA. Who else is better at leading this unit than someone who has personal experience at violating departmental policy by getting his knob wet while on the clock. It adds credibility when you have someone in charge that has first hand experience! I firmly believe leadership should have experience to lead! This is a perfect example of lead by example...

At least Cecil isnt a rat like Mike Campagnia. He lied on the stand and tried to send Kerrick to prison for murder. Nice little promotion that he received for that shit, too.

I worked there some time ago when Stephens was Chief. I can’t believe how bad it’s gotten. Your bosses are all backstabbing liars and hypocrites. How are you all able to trust who you are working with when it appears that it’s every man for himself ? When I was on patrol you could count on each other and not have to worry about petty policy violations or who was getting their Johnson licked while on duty. It is a shame that a once great police department has turned into an adult preschool/reality show where the least favorite person gets voted off. It’s like an urban version of Survivor.
