[TN] Judge says Officer Brown can GO HOME???

A Murfreesboro Police officer whose wife obtained a second order of protection against him will return home and attend counseling sessions with his wife after a hearing Tuesday in Circuit...

Watch below also for Brown's use of police tactics on his wife. There should be a set of special laws for using professional law enforcement tactical techniques outside of the job. And these incidents noted are only what's hit the paper. No one knows but God what Mrs. Brown has endured. Officer Brown can come home with PASTORAL counseling - one of the tricks our police chief David Brame here in Tacoma Washington tried to pressure his wife Crystal with mere weeks before he committed murder-suicide - with their children runnning to the scene.

From Crystal's Journal:
"...
Chaplain Bowlby asked me to call off the divorce proceedings for 6 weeks and meet with him and David for counseling..."

Please pray for this family.

[Excerpts] Complaints about a Murfreesboro Police officer assaulting his wife for the second time in two years are being investigated by detectives, a sergeant reported. Officer Finess Brown, 36, was accused of assaulting his wife, Catina, during an argument Tuesday. The wife accused him of grabbing her wrist, causing her arm to be pulled behind her, Sgt. Harry Haigh reported. Their 15-year-old son tried to intervene. “I examined Ms. Brown’s wrist and did not notice any signs of injury and she stated she was not injured,” Haigh reported.

[Excerpts] A Murfreesboro Police officer is under investigation by his own department for the second time in less than two years after his wife claimed he assaulted her again. Patrolman Finess Brown, 36, could face domestic assault charges. He has not reported to work since his spouse filed a domestic violence report with the Murfreesboro Police Department on Thursday, Murfreesboro Police Maj. Clyde Adkison said... The investigation stems from events occurring between Feb. 10 and Feb. 12, according to the police report. Brown’s wife reported that on Feb. 10 she and her husband got into an argument, which led to the officer grabbing her wrist and twisting her arm behind her back. After a struggle she was able to get away from Brown, “fleeing the house in fear wearing only a T-shirt, shorts and socks,” she told police. She said she later returned to the home after Brown calmed down, and decided to slip out of the home with their three children and some clothing after Brown went to sleep. When Brown realized his wife and children were gone, his wife reported, he began calling her and threatening her over the phone, and through a text message that allegedly said he would "find (her) anywhere.” Brown again made contact with his wife while she was taking her children to school on Thursday, his wife told police. Brown saw his wife and children while they were leaving Hardees on Old Fort Parkway and signaled them to pull over. When she pulled over, Brown approached the car and she cracked the window to allow him to speak to the children. “He immediately demanded her to unlock the door,” the report states. “She refused and he began pulling on the window, causing the vehicle to rock back and forth. (Brown’s wife) stated she was afraid he was going to harm her so she did not unlock the door and drove away.” FOLLOWING THAT INCIDENT, BROWN’S SPOUSE WENT TO THE MURFREESBORO POLICE DEPARTMENT TO FILE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE REPORT. AFTER THE REPORT WAS FILED, MURFREESBORO POLICE DETECTIVE JENNIFER WEST WAS NOTIFIED. WEST HELPED BROWN’S SPOUSE OBTAIN AN EX PARTE ORDER OF PROTECTION AGAINST HIM. That order of protection had not been served as of Friday at 2:30 p.m. because Brown has not reported for work and cannot be located... Brown, who has worked for the department since July 2004, was decommissioned in June 2007 for assaulting his wife... officers reported seeing swelling on his wife’s face consistent with being struck. NO RECORDS RELATED TO THE 2007 CHARGES WERE ON FILE AT THE RUTHERFORD COUNTY JUDICIAL BUILDING ON FRIDAY. A CLERK SAID IT IS POSSIBLE HIS RECORD HAD BEEN EXPUNGED. A Daily News Journal reporter attempted to view Brown’s personnel file on Friday at MPD, but Adkison said access would not be allowed until Tuesday because certain parts of his file would “have to be redacted.” Police officers' personnel files are considered open for inspection under the state’s open records laws...

[Excerpts] A Murfreesboro Police officer has been PLACED ON DECOMMISSIONED STATUS for the second time in less than two years following allegations of domestic violence by his wife. Patrolman Finess Brown, 36, gave up his status as a law enforcement officer after he reported to work Tuesday morning, the first time he'd been to work since the allegations arose last Thursday, according to Murfreesboro Police Maj. Clyde Adkison. Brown met with Chief Glenn Chrisman and Deputy Chief Randy Garrett and agreed to his decommission. "I concur with decommission until further notice," a note written on a decommission notice by Chief Glenn Chrisman and signed by both Chrisman and Brown reads. Brown will not be allowed to carry a firearm "onto any property owned or controlled by the City of Murfreesboro at any time," the document reads. He also will not be allowed to carry a badge, wear his police uniform or present himself as an officer of MPD. In addition, Brown "will not perform in any official law enforcement capacity except by subpoena, court order or as authorized by the deputy chief or chief of police." According to Adkison, Brown was also served late Monday with an ex parte order of protection taken out against him by his wife, Catina... A judge will determine the legitimacy of that "temporary" order of protection and can choose to throw the action out or make it permanent at a hearing set for Feb. 24 in Rutherford County General Sessions Court... "There are no charges at this time,""There are no charges at this time," Adkison said. "This is an active investigation." Brown, who has worked for the department since July 2004, was also decommissioned in June 2007 following charges that he assaulted his wife... According to his personnel file, Brown was reinstated to duty at the MPD Feb. 8, 2008, following the completion of a comprehensive mental evaluation by Murfreesboro psychiatrist Murphy M. Thomas, who certified he was "free of all mental disorders." The latest investigation of Brown stems from events occurring between Feb. 10 and Feb. 12, according to a domestic violence report filed at MPD last week... THE REPORT POINTS OUT THAT BROWN'S WIFE HAD NO VISIBLE INJURIES AND THAT SHE TOLD POLICE SHE WAS NOT PHYSICALLY INJURED BUT DID FEAR FOR HER SAFETY. [Full article here]

[Excerpts] A Murfreesboro Police officer whose wife obtained a second order of protection against him will
return home
and
attend counseling sessions
with his wife after a hearing Tuesday in Circuit Court... Under an agreement between husband and wife, attorney Ben Parsley said Brown's case will be reviewed again in 45 days and six months.
He and his wife will discuss issues with a minister.
Circuit Court Judge Mark Rogers noted Brown has been in his court twice for orders of protection obtained by his wife. "I don't want a pattern to be started," Rogers told Brown. Sometimes, it's better to stay apart or someone could be hurt later, the judge said. Both Parsley and Domestic Violence Program attorney Mitch Shannon told Rogers the couple plans to attend counseling with a pastor. "Mr. Brown, if things fall through, you should remove yourself from the process," Rogers said. "If something develops - and I'm not going to order it - you remove yourself from the situation."

    Finess Brown is pathetic. He is a poor excuse for a human being. How can he stand to look at himself in the mirror???! It disgusts me that he is still able to wear a badge.
