First Drip (9/23/13): CMPD review board under scrutiny, Three Amigos robbed at gunpoint, highs and lows of the Emmys and more

Posted By on Mon, Sep 23, 2013 at 10:09 AM

A task force that has been reviewing the board that oversees police discipline is expected to make recommendations to City Council today. The Citizens Review Board has been under scrutiny since earlier this year, when a Charlotte Observer investigation found that the board was among the weakest of its kind in the country. The scrutiny was exacerbated last week after an officer shot and killed and unarmed man.

Three Amigos, a Latin food staple on Central Avenue, was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday. At least one shot was fired and two employees were hit in the leg. Fortunately their injuries are minor.

The highs and lows of last night's Emmys.
