Will Chief Chalmers testify before the City Panel?



In a WRAL-TV report the question "will Chief Chalmers testify before the City Panel investigation of the Duke Lacrosse Hoax" was asked of the Chairman Justice Willis P. Whichard. He said he is hopeful Chalmers will agree to voluntarily appear before the panel and answer questions, but it isn't resolved as of now.

The MIA Chief is planning to stay in the PD until late 2007, even after new Chief Lopez takes command so that his pension benefits increases. As of now City Manger Baker does not know what what duties Chalmers will have. One suggestion is for Chief Chalmers to answer the basic question of why was he MIA during the investigation which NC AG Attorney General Cooper so condemn?

One would think that if someone didn't have anything to hide they would testify before the panel?

Will Chalmers, Gottlieb, Addison, Clayton, Lamb, Hodge, and Ripberger testify?

If there is a new cheif...how on earth is chalmers allowed to stay on for a pension increase....it seems as if all these people think or care about is their pensions...

somehow i think this is very corrupt.

They need to review all the case documents and then start with questions to those at the bottom of the chain before they'd even know what to ask the man at the top of the chain of command.

Agree with kbp -- questioning needs to start at the bottom and move up. No one knows (yet) what the critical questions will be.

My bet is none of them show without a subpoena, on advice of counsel, and committee will decide not to issue them. Don't see this going anywhere at all. I think we've seen the show folks... defense attorneys talking to plugged ears. Whicahrd showed his cards when he (a) said it WAS NOT a lineup and (b) when he said they didn't have time to read the documents outlining the crimes committed by the DPD. End of story folks.

Ain't nobody been runnin' the damned police department for a long time now . . . it is just the way it is in Durham. Who is running the Dook police? Have they caught the killers of the four associated with NCCU? What is up with that? What about the rape at the party with the Dook student gettin' raped and all? What's up wit' dat? Is everyone in Durham on crack or what?

Is Chalmer's allowed to turn up wearing his fishing kit and carrying his pole? Seems he was always away fishing but caught all the wrong fish. Missed catching the Stripper Kipper!

WHERE is Chalmers?

And where is the voter base in Durham that is paying a salary to someone who's vanished from the face of the earth? Unbelievable!
