Well liked, career CMPD Captain Chuck Adkins has apparently been fired by Chief Monroe. Adkins had been with the department since 1991.
Adkins who served under three different department chiefs found himself in Chief Monroe's cross hairs early last year when he got into a altercation with a 16 year neighborhood thug Jamel Malik Williams.
According to news reports from January of this year, the teen was charged with assaulting Captain Adkins but blamed the fight on Adkins putting dog feces in a friend’s mailbox.
The issue was later resolved and Adkins kept his job.
However, sources tell Cedar Posts that Adkins again found himself the center of controversy when he disclosed that he refused to help the victim of an apparent kidnapping and assault that came to his residence recently.
The victim presented herself at Capt Adkins home late one evening, and later became the subject of a missing persons case. No word on the status of the victim.
It is also unclear if Captain Adkins is appealing the firing.
Cedar Posts Bonus: Jamel Malik Williams has been arrested in December of 2011 charged with four felonies and one misdemanor, and again in May of this year again charged with two breaking and entering felonies. William while only 16 weighes in at 240 pounds and is a high school dropout.
Cedar Posts Update: A couple of people from the MSM called over to ask CMPD what was what. CMPD's answer was the usual "I don't know what you're talking about". This is of course CMPD's MO/SOP and the same thing they tried to say (albeit briefly) with Marcus Jackson.
You can expect the formal answer will be something along the lines of "he's still on the payroll". This is all fair in personnel issues, but this is more than Adkins was a bad cop and Monroe wanted to get him off the force. This is a missing persons case, and apparently Adkins was the last to see the woman alive.
Cedar's Take: Personally I think the firing is a little heavy handed since Adkins outed himself. Confession of your sins is normally a pretty good reason for not being fired unless the Chief has it in for you in the first place.
Don't anyone get all worked up about failing to render aid, after all Vicki Foster has said publicly she wouldn't help anyone if they were not a Christian. I man had been attacked before by neighborhood thugs so maybe he didn't feel like dealing with another nut case. I'm not saying it is right, just that many CMPD Officers have committed much more serious transgressions with little if any consequences.
