In 2007 John Torres was fired from the Lansing Police Dept. after he was arrested for driving drunk when he was involved in a fatal two car crash that killed the other driver,(42 year old Mark Kline of Flushing). Not long after his firing from Lansing, Torres ended up on the Stockbridge Police Dept. and now is the Chief at Stockbridge. Does anyone know if the Stockbridge board checked Torres' criminal background & would have known about this? Does anyone know if the Stockbridge board would have checked with the Lansing Police Dept to see if Torres committed any other acts that led to his firing? What do others think about Torres policing Stockbridge residents & making decisions about residents going to prison?

I don't know about anyone else, but I would not enjoy having a non-law abiding citizen deciding on anyone else. He can't even control himself, let alone a city.

I know him personally and he is the most corrupt police officer that you could ever have the misfortune to meet.

You guys don't even know this man. After his accident he turned to the merciful lord and asked for forgiveness. That is one of the reasons why he is where he is at today. He had to work a lot of crap jobs and go back to school to get a good job back. Also the accident wasn't his fault the other man was intoxicated beyond belief and torres was barely over the limit. He has since quit drinking and has been sober for 7 years now. Everyone pisting bad comments are probably criminals that did something wrong and you guys are now mad at Torres for doing his job. Also yes the board did know this and that is one of the reasons Dan Dancer (now deceased) hired him because he himself had been through the aa program.

He Are you sure he didn't come from Eaton Rapids? Sounds like some of the cops who use to be here.
