Last month the Charlotte Citizens Review Board issued a split decision on whether CMPT Officer Brentley Vinson should have been disciplined for the fatal shooting of Keith Scott. But the board unanimously approved policy recommendations for the department. CMPD Chief Kerr Putney revealed some of the board’s suggestions and responded to them today. WFAE’s Gwendolyn Glenn was at the press conference and joins Nick de la Canal in the studio.

If the Charlotte Citizens Review Board was a courtroom jury, it would be a hung jury in the case of CMPD officer Brentley Vinson. Members considered whether CMPD Chief Kerr Putney erred when he ruled that last year’s fatal police shooting of Keith Scott was justified and decided not to discipline Vinson.
