>> wbtv's editorial board recently met with charlotte chief of police putany. we asked him about his vision, on the morning of our meeting the chief dealing with the release of a video showing very well of his officers subduing a suspect in a hit-and-run accident am officers say the subject resisted arrest. one is seen landing blows to the suspect's back. the goal was to get him to release his arms so officers could cuff him. there were those who called actions excessive. they began investigation. from the outset, chief putany and the department were transparent about the event and the tactics getting the suspect
he said use of force did not rise to a criminal law, but his department would see if there's policy violation. policing is tough business. most officers handle the job well. we have seen others who cross the line. however,, this incident turns out, we count on the chief to police his department as viciously as his officers do the criminals they pursue. in this case, we believe he did that. we hope his handling of this matter and others that will arrive will help build trust between officers on the street and citizens they vow to serve and protect. >> 77, popular number for wednesday, thursday, friday. we will get some rain, specifically thursday evening ending friday early in the day. another round potentially sunday into monday. i think sunrise on sunday, should be ok. >> yeah.
