[KY] THE PROMOTION OF WIFE-KICKING (EXPUNGED) POLICE SGT SHOBE





TODAY'S NEWS ARTICLE ABOUT THE PROMOTION OF LOUISVILLE POLICE OFFICER KIRBY SHOBE TO SERGEANT DIDN'T SAY ENOUGH, SO I DUG UP INFORMATION FROM THE LIBRARY ARCHIVES. THE INFORMATION ARRANGED INTO A TIMELINE BELOW HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM THE FOLLOWING COURIER JOURNAL ARTICLES:

2000_1025 Police Officer Arrested On Charge Of Assault
2001_0331 Louisville Officer Pleads Guilty To Harassment
2001_0831 Dv Case Against Louisville Officer Is Dismissed
2002_0809 Officer Who Pleaded Guilty To Harassment Is Suspended
2006_0217 Promoted Officers Were Suspended


ø¤°`°¤ø,¸_¸,ø¤°`°¤,¸_¸,ø¤°`°¤ø


1996
A WOMAN (NOT OFFICER SHOBE'S WIFE) SOUGHT A DOMESTIC-VIOLENCE ORDER AGAINST HIM, WRITING IN HER PETITION THAT SHOBE HAD TEMPER TANTRUMS AND HAD DESTROYED HER KITCHEN WITH A GOLF CLUB. A JUDGE GRANTED A NO-CONTACT ORDER AND STIPULATED THERE BE NO FURTHER ACTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR ABUSE.

ø¤°`°¤ø,¸_¸,ø¤°`°¤,¸_¸,ø¤°`°¤ø

1997
A DOMESTIC-VIOLENCE ORDER ISSUED IN JANUARY 1997 ORDERED SHOBE TO UNDERGO ANGER-CONTROL COUNSELING AND STAY 300 FEET FROM THE WOMAN. THE WOMAN LATER DROPPED HER REQUEST FOR THAT ORDER AND AN EMERGENCY PROTECTIVE ORDER...

1998
KIRBY SHOBE IS HIRED BY THE LOUIVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT. DID I MENTION THAT KIRBY SHOBE IS THE SON OF RETIRED JEFFERSON CIRCUIT JUDGE BEN SHOBE? HE IS. DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN SAID THE 1997 DOMESTIC-VIOLENCE ORDER WOULD HAVE SHOWN UP IN A BACKGROUND CHECK WHEN SHOBE APPLIED TO BECOME AN OFFICER. BUT SHOBE WAS HIRED UNDER FORMER CHIEF DOUG HAMILTON'S ADMINISTRATION, THE SPOKESMAN SAID, SO HE COULDN'T COMMENT ON THAT

2000

JANUARY
SHOBE AND HIS WIFE ALSO FILED FOR DOMESTIC-VIOLENCE ORDERS AGAINST EACH OTHER. THAT'S ALL WE KNOW ABOUT THAT.

OCTOBER
OFFICER SHOBE WAS BEEN PLACED ON PAID ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE AFTER BEING CHARGED WITH 4TH DEGREE ASSAULT -"ASSAULT WITH NO INJURY" (?)... SHOBE'S WIFE TOLD OFFICERS THAT HE SLAPPED HER, "THREW HER TO THE KITCHEN FLOOR AND KICKED HER FIVE TO 10 TIMES." (THINK ON THAT.)


ø¤°`°¤ø,¸_¸,ø¤°`°¤,¸_¸,ø¤°`°¤ø

2001

MARCH
SHOBE PLEADS GUILTY TO HARASSMENT WITH PHYSICAL CONTACT BUT NO INJURY. SHOBE MUST ATTEND ANGER-CONTROL COUNSELING AND CANNOT HAVE CONTACT WITH HIS WIFE FOR SIX MONTHS... IF SHOBE COMPLIES WITH THE NO-CONTACT ORDER AND THE COUNSELING, THE HARASSMENT CHARGE LIKELY WILL BE DISMISSED...

AUGUST
THE CASE AGAINST OFFICER SHOBE WAS DISMISSED ON AUGUST 31ST BECAUSE HE COMPLETED ANGER-MANAGEMENT CLASSES ON AUGUST 28TH. A MOTION WAS ENTERED TO EXPUNGE THE CASE FROM THE RECORD, AND THAT MATTER WAS SCHEDULED TO BE ADDRESSED IN OCTOBER.

OCTOBER
ALL COURT RECORDS IN THE CASE WERE ORDERED EXPUNGED.

2002
OFFICER SHOBE HAS RECEIVED A 15-DAY SUSPENSION. POLICE CHIEF GREG SMITH SAID THE PUNISHMENT - METED OUT AFTER A DEPARTMENT INTERNAL INVESTIGATION THAT OPENED IN OCTOBER 2000 - WAS FAIR, ADDING THAT "15 DAYS IS A HEAVY SUSPENSION." A LOUISVILLE POLICE SPOKESWOMAN SAID THAT SHE WAS NOT SURE WHY THE INTERNAL INVESTIGATION TOOK 22 MONTHS. "THE DEPARTMENT TRIES TO BE THOROUGH RATHER THAN WORK UNDER ANY KIND OF TIME FRAME." CHIEF SMITH SAID "POLICE ARE HUMAN, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE."

2006 - FEBRUARY 17
TODAY, FEBRUARY 17TH, LOUISVILLE METRO POLICE OFFICER KIRBY SHOBE WAS PROMOTED TO SERGEANT. POLICE CHIEF ROBERT WHITE: "WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT THEY DID WRONG AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. BUT WE ALSO HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE THEIR CAREERS... I AM CONVINCED THAT EACH OF THEM UNDERSTANDS WHAT OUR MISSION IS... THEY'RE ALL TEAM PLAYERS."

    [Excerpts] An officer suspended for drunken driving and another for harassment are among the 15 officers to be promoted by Louisville Metro Police today. In a ceremony this morning, Jerald Fifer will be promoted to lieutenant and Kirby Shobe to sergeant, despite past discipline from the department. Police Chief Robert White said both men have been solid officers since they were disciplined and have earned their promotions. "They have done what was asked of them. They paid their price," White said. "We have a responsibility to acknowledge what they did wrong and hold them accountable. But we also have a responsibility to give them an opportunity to continue their careers"... Fifer was off duty when he crashed his personal car into a minivan on April 2, 2003. He was sentenced to four days in jail, serving three of them on home incarceration. Fifer's suspension was reduced to 25 days after an appeal to the Police Merit Board. Shobe was suspended for 15 days in 2002 after pleading guilty to harassment in a domestic-violence case. Former Chief Greg Smith issued Shobe's suspension... Shobe's wife accused him of slapping her, throwing her on the kitchen floor and kicking her five to 10 times during an October 2000 incident. Shobe pleaded guilty in March 2001 to harassment with physical contact but no injury. Under a diversion program for first-time domestic offenders, the charge was dismissed after he completed anger-control sessions...
