[OH] There's hate in that suicide threat Laura.

Suicidal, sadistic, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 president, ex-SWAT, ex-Strike Team member, once-U.S. Marshal, current Lorain Police Detective Corey Earl is on paid "medical" leave and is not supposed to carry a gun after his wife Laura filed for a protection order. He had gone to their 0nce-shared house - they're divorcing after 24 years - showed her his gun and said he was going to kill himself in front of her (she said). She talked him out of it. He left. She called the Chief. Chief had officers find Earl and he slept at another cops house. His suicide threat is screaming murder. BUT WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO THE CHIEF:

...Earl's wife contacted the Amherst Police Department later in the day to explain what happened, telling them she did not want to call police earlier because she was afraid to get Earl in trouble with his job... Chief Cel Rivera said he will require a doctor's letter before he allows 17-year veteran Officer Corey Earl to work as a police officer again... "My biggest concern is that he gets the help he needs so that he can be OK and be a part of this police department"... officers had been called out to the home at least twice before for disputes between the couple... There were no charges filed in connection with either incident...

  2. How does a cop get to "go sleep at another officers house for the night" after threatening to commit suicide? I am a paramedic and worked for the SAME city and ANYONE who CONTEMPLATES or THREATENS suicide gets a few nites in the hospital and some counseling. How did he get out of all of that?

    I hope the doctor is ready to shoulder the responsiblity of whatever this man may do in the future, based on his lack of treatment. Why is that officer *above the law* that he upholds any other suicidal patient to when he is working in his city? Such as an ems ride to the hospital and a few nites in the hospital and some intense counseling!??!

    I am appalled.

    LORAIN POLICE OFFICER ARRESTED
    BREAKING NEWS

    Amherst Police arrested Lorain Police Officer Corey Earl Saturday afternoon on charges he violated a Civil Protection Order (CPO).

    Amherst Police Lt. Joseph Kucirek said that on the afternoon of September 1st 2007, the Amherst Police Department investigated the possible violation of a previously issued Civil Protection Order (CPO). After a preliminary investigation, it was determined that enough probable cause existed to issue a warrant for Mr. Cory Earl of Amherst, for the violation of Ohio Revised Code 2919.27; Violating Protection Order (M-1). After the warrant was issued, Mr. Earl was located in the City of Lorain and was taken into custody without incident. Earl was transported to the Lorain County Jail where he his being held until his court appearance in Oberlin Municipal Court on September 4th at 8:30 AM.

    There is no additional information being released on this incident at this time, as there is still an ongoing investigation and charges pending.

    Earl, who is also the President of the Lorain Police Union, was placed on paid leave on August 20th by Lorain Police Chief Cel Rivera, citing medical reasons for the leave, after he allegedly went to an Amherst home threatening to kill himself with a gun. The home belongs to Earl’s estranged wife. It was because of that incident that Earl’s wife took out the CPO against her husband. The order, aside from requiring Earl to stay 500 feet away from his wife, also states that he is not to carry a gun.

  7. Corey fits the typical profile of a batterer. To those who don't really know him, he's a nice guy, who is charming and nice. As a person who has worked with him, and seen his true side, he's not so nice. Underneath his facade, he's violent, sadistic, and deceitful. I hope with all the publicity, people will come forward, and tell of the atrocities he perpetrated on them as a cop.

  10. Wife: Cop was abusive
    Lisa Roberson | The Chronicle-Telegram

    ELYRIA — On May 16, 1984, Laura Earl said “I do” when she married Lorain police officer Corey Earl.

    Wednesday she said “I do” again, this time when her attorney asked her if she thought her estranged husband — currently in the county jail for violating a temporary protection order — would cause her harm.

    “I’ve been married to Corey for 23 years. He’s aggressive, controlling, extremely jealous. He has rage. He has been abusive,” Laura Earl told county Domestic Relations Magistrate Rene Zafarana during a hearing on whether the protection order barring Corey Earl from coming near her — and prevents him from carrying a gun — should be kept in place. “Corey has said many, many times to me that nobody will ever have me except him.”

    Zafarana is expected to decide in a few weeks whether the protection order should remain in effect.

    Corey Earl has been on paid medical leave from his job with Lorain police since Aug. 20, when he reportedly went to the Amherst home he once shared with his wife in the early morning with a handgun in his waistband. Laura Earl told police that she awoke to find him standing in the doorway.

    He then reportedly went into the bathroom and said he was going to kill himself, a threat she said Wednesday that she’d heard before during their marriage and something she’d always talked him out of doing.

    Laura Earl said she thought her husband — who filed for divorce from her in March — was going to kill her and then kill himself. She said she spent about 30 minutes convincing him to give her his gun.

    “I don’t think I’ve ever seen his eyes like that, wild,” she said.

    The Aug. 20 incident was the third time Laura Earl called Amherst police on her husband.

    On July 6, she complained that he had thrown items and threatened to hit her. A few days later, she said Wednesday, Corey Earl ransacked her home, dumping out her possessions, taking his television and snapping a crucifix on her wall in half.

    She also told the magistrate that Corey Earl threatened to “smash her face” and kill her.

    Laura also contacted Amherst police on Aug. 13 about text messages that Corey Earl had sent her.

    Corey Earl was arrested Saturday for allegedly violating the temporary protection order that barred him from carrying a gun and from coming within 500 feet of his wife. Amherst police have not released details of that incident, but they have said it didn’t involve a gun.

    He was ordered to undergo a third mental health examination Wednesday before he can be released from the county jail. If he passes the examination, he will be released, but he will have to wear an electronic ankle bracelet to monitor his movements.

    Corey Earl wasn’t at the hearing, but his attorney, Jonathan Rosenbaum, attacked Laura Earl’s credibility, saying she was lying to get their home in the divorce and to ruin her husband’s career.

    His client, he said, had done nothing wrong.

    “His only mistake is he still wants to be married to her,” Rosenbaum said. “Why, I’ll never understand.”

    He also questioned why Laura Earl never told Amherst police nor Lorain Police Chief Cel Rivera about the threats she said Corey Earl made to kill her or an incident earlier in the year when he allegedly threw her to the ground when he found her drinking in a bar while taking an antidepressant.

    There was no evidence that Corey Earl had tried to harm her or even threatened her, Rosenbaum said.

    “The fact that she chooses to say she’s afraid is not legally sufficient (to justify the protection order),” Rosenbaum said.

    Laura Earl said she kept quiet about a lot of what Corey Earl had said and done to protect him.

    “I was afraid that Corey would lose his career,” she said. “I was going on promises made to me.”

    Both Rivera and Amherst Police Chief Lonnie Dillon had told her they would make sure that Corey Earl would get help and stay away from her. They also told her, she said, to change the locks on her house.

    But Dillon later testified that he never told her to change the locks. Another Amherst officer said Laura Earl told him she first learned about protection orders from him, even though she had already said she was aware of them. That same officer denied telling her that she should give her estranged husband a key to the new locks, as Laura Earl said he did.

During a hearing Wednesday, Laura Earl told county Domestic Relations Magistrate Rene Zafarana that she feared her husband was going to kill her and then himself.

    Paper shield: Can protection orders really keep you safe?

    Sep 8, 2007
    When Lorain police officer Corey Earl allegedly made contact with his wife after a civil protection order was issued against him, he defied one of the few tools authorities have to protect women who fear for their lives... "As for protecting people, they're just a piece of paper, so the protection lies in that the person who it's issued against has respect for authority," said Marilyn Zeidner, executive director of the domestic violence shelter Genesis House... A civil protection order is what Earl's wife obtained after he allegedly came to her Amherst home in the early morning hours of Aug. 20 armed with a handgun and threatened to kill himself in front of her... The civil protection order could last as long as five years — if Laura Earl can prove that she has legitimate reasons to fear her husband, a 24-year veteran of the Lorain Police Department... Earl violated the protection order Labor Day weekend... Earl's attorney challenged the civil protection order at a hearing last week, and a county magistrate must determine how long the order — which bars him from carrying a gun and from coming within 500 feet of his wife — will remain in effect... The second type of protection order, a temporary protection order, is issued by police after someone is charged with domestic violence, assault against a member of the same household, menacing by stalking or aggravated trespassing... It's rare, Zeidner said, for someone to lie about whether they fear their spouse, as Earl's attorney suggested was the case at the hearing this week... It's not uncommon for people to ignore a restraining order, said county Prosecutor Dennis Will, adding that the only certain way to protect someone is to take them into custody...

  13. Lorain police officer released from treatment
    The Chronicle-Telegram Staff

    Lorain police officer Corey Earl was released from a Willoughby hospital where he’d been taken for psychiatric treatment last week, though Amherst police and sheriff’s deputies declined to say when he was released.

    Earl, 45, had been taken to the hospital Friday for psychiatric treatment and was released within the past five days, police said, declining to comment on his actual release date because it was a medical issue.
    Earl spent last week in the Lorain County Jail after being charged with violating a civil protection order that his estranged wife filed against him in August. He was placed on paid medical leave from the Lorain police department on Aug. 20 following incidents at his wife’s Amherst home.
    Last week, an Oberlin Municipal Court judge ordered Earl to receive psychiatric treatment at the hospital. Since he was released, he must now wear an ankle bracelet monitoring his location and is barred from entering Amherst or contacting his wife until the charges against him have been resolved, according to court orders.
    Amherst police Lt. Joe Kucirek said his department has received no complaints from Earl’s wife since Earl was released.
