|Airport Gridlock Causes Tempers to Explode
According to the CMPD source the conflict is not unusual as many people are using the departure area for pickups during peak times. The cross traffic creates an atmosphre of hostility. Additionally the construction at the airport means there are only two entrances avaiable on the upper deck.
The lack of Airport Officers is also a reoccurring theme, CP has learned one Airport Officer has been apparently recently been suspended for using his cell phone while on the job. One commentator on Cedar Posts offerred that most Airport officers are face deep in their cell phones and completly obvlious of what is going on around them.
Yet other offices note that is is normal for officers to text each other rather that use thier radios.
No word on the condition of the victim or if any arrests where made.
Cedar Update the victim arrived at CMC Main was treated for a substantial head wound and was released after 8 hours missing a flight and a planned family 14 day cruise to South America. The suspect was released by CMPD Officers at the scene without citing either party. According to a source the suspect was seen apologizing to the victim's family members.
CMPD has now placed an Officer curbside apparently in an effort to avoid further situations like this.
