Oakland County informants had deep, controversial ties to law enforcement.Posted: May 29, 2021
Tip of the iceberg, Oakland County. You can start with the easy one–former assistant prosecutor Greg Townsend and his problems with the basic constitutional requirement of disclosing information that could help confirm the innocence of a defendant. Then how about your previous prosecutors, some of their “select” staff, Sheriff Mike Bouchard, Det./Sgt. Gary Miller, Det./Sgt. David Wurtz (of “get lost, John Hastings comes from a good family” fame)? Wake up. Paying for an independent counsel is only the first installment on what you should ultimately be required to pay out. Almost five decades of sketchy shit. Cleaning house gonna get expensive. Time to pay the piper.
