[CT] Gun-to-girlfriend's head Officer Adams gets sweet deal

Windsor Police Officer Dennis Adams DRY-FIRED his .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol into his (here unnamed) girlfriend's head. Held her head, put the pistol to it, and pulled the trigger. Police Chief Kevin Searles FIRED Adams after an internal investigation, finding that Adams had engaged in "conduct unbecoming an officer, unlawful behavior and lying." He said, "I've been chief for 18 years and this is the first time I've ever had to terminate anyone." (NO one in 18 years?) The state labor board panel reviewed the firing and said that Officer Adams "was GUILTY OF CONDUCT INAPPROPRIATE to a sworn police officer but that his actions didn't call for his being fired." (Inappropriate?) So he got his job back. And NOW he gets to go to a domestic violence program, which if he completes successfully, will leave Officer Adams with
no charges.
WHAT A SAD DEAL!

...The woman was notified of Adams' application for the program, but she was not present in the courtroom today. Assistant State's Attorney Keith DuBoff said he contacted the victim as late as Monday about whether she objected to the application and she did not call him back... Under the pre-trial diversionary program, if a defendant successfully completes the program, the charges are dismissed... On January 19, the board of mediation and arbitration in the state Department of Labor ruled in Adams' favor and ordered that he be reinstated to his job... In its decision, the three-person arbitration panel said that Adams conduct was inappropriate for a sworn police officer and merited discipline but not his dismissal...

  1. Excerpts I found about the weapon:

    ...Due to its large size, the weapon is not practical for concealed carry or most self defense situations... Muzzle Flash - This has been a discussion topic for years.... the fireball is just immense... lights the whole room... The Desert Eagle is unusual in that it uses a gas-operated mechanism normally found in rifles... the rotating bolt and locking mechanism bear a strong resemblance to that of the M16 series of rifles... it allows the use of far more powerful cartridges... For a more detailed look at the Desert Eagle variants as well other .50 caliber and other large semiauto pistols, revolvers, single-shot pistols, etc., see Duncan Long's book, Hand Cannons...

  2. So

    HOLDING A PORTABLE CANNON TO A WOMAN'S HEAD IS WITHIN THE REALM OF WHAT OFFICERS IN WINDSOR CONNECTICUT CAN DO... THEY MAY HAVE TO TAKE A CLASS - BUT THEY CAN DO IT.

    WHERE IS THE VICTIM?
    WHO PROTECTS HER?

    WINDSOR POLICE?

  3. Not to mention Mr. Adams was married
    and got caught
    and is a discrace to the police force not only for cheating but for being a dirty unloyal cop
    So read the name tape next time you get pulled over in Windsor Ct.

  5. Interesting that you're calling out the name. And if you read the transcripts, you'd know that even Dennis Adams' wife (now ex) confirmed that he told her he was planning on having her killed.

    1. Thank you for pointing that out. I don't know how I let that slip by me.
