Detroit Police Officer Kevin Chambers:
Mistress shot in the leg as Officer Chambers and his wife reportedly struggled over a gun on August 20, 2014.
Officer Kevin Chambers - Mistress shot - Detroit PD
In the early morning hours of August 20th, Officer Kevin Chambers' mistress was shot in the leg as Officer Chambers and his wife reportedly struggled over a gun.
"... until they [Detroit PD] talk to the shooting victim, they don't have probable cause to think it was anything other than an accident...Police say they will also be asking the shooting victim if she wants to pursue criminal charges." ???
Let's end the Detroit PD's silence that protected Officer Kevin Chambers and his job in 2006, for "off duty incident where he fired shots" AND AGAIN in 2008 when Chambers was arrested for: "Fleeing and Eluding, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon, Operating While Impaired and Reckless Driving."
Officer Kevin Chambers' story is also being followed on Behind the Blue Wall and Police - Officer Involved Domestic Violence Network:
[MI] Officer Chambers' alleged "mistress" shot by Mrs. Chambers. (Police wonder if it was accidental?)

RE: Taylor PD Officer Michael Calabrese's May 30th conviction for misuse of LEIN:
On June 10th, Calabrese was fired from the department due to his criminal convictions.
On June 20th, Calabrese was sentenced to 6 - 12 months probation for his misuse of the LEIN criminal convictions.
During a two-year period of time, Officer Calabrese victimized / stalked eight women via misuse of the LEIN. One of the victims was only eighteen years old, and when her parents attempted to intervene, Calabrese reportedly told his victim there was nothing they could do as she was of legal age...

Detroit PD Officer Hamilton Barton murdered by her husband - Detroit PD's version:
On the Detroit PD FaceBook page, they claim that Officer Anna Hamilton-Barton "was found dead in her home..." - WITH NO EXPLANATION OF HOW SHE DIED. They do not mention that she was murdered by her husband. Let's not forget that immediately following Officer Hamilton's murder, the Detroit PD was referring to her death as a "DOMESTIC INCIDENT".
Why won't the Detroit PD say the words: "Officer involved domestic violence murder"? How can the Detroit PD address the problem of OIDV among their ranks if they continue to ignore that it exists?
Check it out for yourself at the Detroit PD FaceBook page:

The Constantine PD and MSP continue the investigation into finding Jodi's killer[s].
2007 unsolved murder of Jodi Parrack - Constantine Police Reserve Officer Raymond McCann suspect.
Jodi Parrack Murder Investigation - Reserve Officer Raymond McCann suspect
On November 08, 2007, 11-year-old Jodi Parrack was murdered. Her mother - Valerie Jo - found Jodi's body in the Constantine Township Cemetery after Jodi failed to come home from a friend's home earlier that evening. It was family friend and Constantine PD Reserve Officer Raymond McCann who had suggested that the cemetery be searched for Jodi.
Jodi Parrack's murder has remained unsolved for over six years. From the beginning of the investigation, Reserve Officer Raymond McCann was considered as a suspect because of his insisting that the cemetery be search for Jodi, and due to the inconsistencies in his stories regarding his whereabouts between the time of Jodi's disappearance and the discovery of her body.
In 2009, retired Michigan State Police Detective Jim Bedell came out of retirement and became Chief of the Constantine PD. Chief Bedell's main motive was to solve Jodi's murder.
Valerie Jo Carver has never lost faith that the police would eventually find her daughter Jodi's killer[s].

[MI] Corrections Officer Kenneth M. Norton - Murder of Tabatha Horn [07/05/1993]
An old case from 1993 - But I am posting this because Norton was paroled in 2012. When you read the post on MIOIDV, you will note that Tabatha's body was found NUDE - and there was a history of child molestation in the Norton family. So this is also a creepy crawler alert, eh.
Officer Johnny Ray Bridges - Detroit PD
The Detroit PD was well aware of Officer Bridges violent tendencies. On February 25, 2006 Officer Bridges beat Olden Medley unconscious. Bridges was not even reprimanded by the department, although the City of Detroit later paid a settlement to Medley for the assault.
A study completed by the National Network to End Domestic Violence - NNEDV - that does not include OIDV...How the hell can you do research on DV homicides involving firearms, and not include the most deadliest form of DV associated with shooting deaths: OIDV?
