Just to let y'all know I'd like to change things up a little. I've spend the last year passing along news about our Police Chief Rodney Monroe.
I think I've been fair, and I've really tried to avoid being a source of "opinion news" about the Chief. The truth is following Rodney is overwhelming, the RoMo news is endless.
As someone pointed out this morning never in the history of Charlotte has a police chief been in the press as much as RoMo. Chief Monroe is the Paris Hilton of Charlotte. There is not a day that goes by that someone in blue doens't tell me another bizarre story about Chief and lil' Chief.
There is an email regarding a former female officer and a male officer who was shot a few years back and they have just now won a lawsuit against the CMPD. It is stuff like this that the mainstream press doesn't cover. More about that later.
In the mean while I'm spinning off a new blog called "Meckburbia" with the help of some friends who follow a less than conventional path for their journalistic endeavors.
Part news, part satire, part paparazzo they are going after crazy stuff that happens around us in the land called Meckburbia.
Think "Parker Myers" from 20 plus years ago, or "The Mecklenburgers" from more recent times. Anyways once it gets up and running it should be fun.
Here's a standing request, see something wierd, got a neighbor who creeps you out, let us know. Write your own stuff, we'll post it but please no Rodney Monroe.
