Heres some of the things that make it seem like Shellum isn't forthright. He makes a statement:
But then you find out through minimal investigative reporting on behalf of the Star Tribune:The officer has been working undercover for the past year and will stay in that role for at least the next 18 months, Shellum said.
He would not go into specifics about what his officer was doing in Coon Rapids.
The officer hadn't alerted Coon Rapids police that he would be in their city, which would be a common procedure if any arrests were planned.
"He could've been following up on a lead or meeting an informant," Shellum said. "Obviously, if an arrest would have been executed there, we would've let [Coon Rapids] know. ... He was working."
Working in Coon Rapids? Or was he coming or going from his house not working? Shellum is making it look like he's trying to cover up something.The officer was recovering at home Friday morning and doing fine, said a woman at his Coon Rapids townhome, less than a mile from the shooting site. She said she was his fiancée.
