Capt. Chuck Adkins is before Civil Service Board hearing about his decision not to report a 19-year old prostitute who had been kidnapped and beaten by her pimp. Adkins was off duty when the woman spotted him and instead encouraged her to report what had happen and let her use his cellphone. That’s not the weird part though. As the Charlotte Observer reports:
The case is now part of a federal investigation. Details remain sketchy, but officers testified the Department of Homeland Security has interviewed the woman.
They did not say who the federal probe was targeting or what allegations the Department of Homeland Security were investigating.
Two men have been charged with kidnapping the woman who came to Adkins’ home. Authorities did not divulge their names, ages or other identifying information.
We have secret arrests now in the United States? What’s next, secret trials?
