Tag: Michigan State Police
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
90 days have expired since charges were filed by Mr. Crowder, and AFP. All I can say is, it's amazing.
In other MSP related news, MSP investigates MSP Trooper who stopped wrong vehicle, threatening death with gun drawn down on innocent startled driver to be fit for patrol. I know... color me surprised too. Better blow more money graduating more of those "professionals" to be the armed protectors. Frilliant.

Back a couple years ago Sgt. Mike Oliver of the Michigan State Police, stationed at the Alpena Post, had suspected his wife of having an affair. He used his position and access to the evidence room at the Alpena post to use evidence on a computer in a child porn case to discredit his wife and the man she was supposedly having an affair with. He downloaded the porn from the computer in the porn case and was going to transfer it to a computer used by his wife and her purported boyfriend. He was caught and convicted and then fought his firing from the Michigan State Police. The case against the person in the original porn case was dismissed because of Sgt. Oliver's illegal actions.
Sgt. Oliver eventually pleaded guilty to lesser chargers and was fired by the Michigan State Police. He fought thru the union processes, won his job back and is now being "re-trained". Ain't the unions just wonderful!

I know a guy. He is a post commander for the Michigan State Police.
During his last visit our conversation turned toward the construction of the new state police headquarters in Lansing. He was adamant that a majority of the policemen, as well as himself, were strongly opposed to the new building. He seemed to swear more often the longer we talked about it.
The new building would be too small, too expensive, was driven by politics and not need, and was embarrassing for many of the officers because they feared they might be perceived as being in support of it. I think he swore again at that point. As far as he was concerned, it was a project being ramrodded through by a governor that had no idea what the needs of the MSP were.
