Heard he has a lawsuit on him for beating an older couple because he thought they was hiding their son from the cops. Also heard he had complaints on him before that.

I have dealt with him before. He is a fair man and does a good job. We have to be careful repeating what we "hear". There are two sides to every story.

An attorney for the city of Paducah contends police officers’ SWAT team raid on a couple’s home last November was warranted because their son was wanted for two Dawson Springs homicides.
The attorney for Donnie and Marcia McKinney says police used excessive force. The McKinneys, of Olivet Church Road, sued the city, Paducah police Sgt. Brian Laird and other, unnamed police officers this week, saying they suffered physical, mental and emotional injuries as well as damage to their property. They seek payment for the injuries as well as punitive damages.
The McKinneys’ son, Dustin McKinney, was not at the couple’s home when the police department’s SWAT team broke open the door.
“They called Dustin McKinney on his cell phone the next day, and he gave himself up peacefully,” said Dan Canon, the Louisville attorney representing the McKinneys.“If they had done that 12 hours earlier they could have saved the McKinneys the trauma that they will undoubtedly suffer for the rest of their lives.”
State police said they arrested McKinney at a north Graves County mobile home about 8 a.m. Nov. 20 after receiving a tip regarding his location. Police called Dustin McKinney and he surrendered.
Donnie McKinney has said he was responding to a knock on his door after 11:30 p.m. Nov. 19 when officers blew open the door with explosives, knocking him against a wall. Officers assisted him to the ground, and one put a boot on his back, he said. He later discovered he had broken ribs. McKinney said he was frightened and at first had no idea whom the armed men in his home were.
The city’s attorney, Stacey Blankenship, said police had received a tip that Dustin McKinney was at the house.
“In this situation it was a double murder, and they had to act as they did, which is to ensure their safety and any person’s safety at that house is being protected,” Blankenship said.“You cannot give a suspect notice by knocking on the door and having a conversation with someone at the front door while at the same time someone could be running out the back door.”
Dustin McKinney, 24, and Eddie Goodnight Jr., 40, both of Paducah, are each charged with two counts of capital murder and one count of first-degree robbery. The bodies of Lynn and Mary Ann Moore were discovered at their home Oct. 30. Lynn Moore had been shot, Hopkins County Sheriff Frank Latham said. His wife had been beaten. The two had been killed about two days earlier, according to the murder indictment. Goodnight is the nephew of Mary Ann Moore’s ex-husband.
A grand jury indicted the men Dec. 15 and arraigned them Dec. 21, according to the Hopkins County Circuit Clerk’s Office. Their pre-trial conference was held in Circuit Judge James Brantley’s chambers Feb. 12, but the clerk’s office said it had no information on what took place, including any future court dates. The men are being held without bond at the Hopkins County Jail.
Hopkins Commonwealth Attorney David Massamore has filed his intention to seek the death penalty in the case. McKinney’s court-appointed attorney, Lucien Cisney, declined comment.
Several firearms were missing from the Moores’ home, according to the search warrant for the McKinney home. The warrant, which McCracken District Judge Tony Kitchen signed, gave officers permission to search the property for Dustin McKinney, his red Dodge pickup truck and nine guns, including an AK-47 assault rifle and shotguns.
Canon said he does not dispute that police had the right to search the home, but said they should have gone about it differently.
“In this case there do not seem to be any facts and circumstances for them to raid Donnie McKinney’s house in the way that they did,” he said.“The fact of the matter is, undoubtedly, if a couple of officers had gone to their house and knocked on the door and said,‘Can we search your house?’ Donnie McKinney would have said,‘Absolutely, yes.’”

Detective Mike Wentworth, Police Officer or Undercover Pedophile?
by Paducah Sun Saturday, Jul. 03, 2010 at 3:18 AM

"Crimes are no longer just on the street. They're on the computer and on the Internet," said Sgt. Brian Laird with the Paducah Police Department.

Police have launched an ICAC unit, short for Internet Crimes Against Children. Laird said the unit was created to deal with a huge spike in sex crimes.

The program started last September thanks to equipment and training provided by state and federal dollars. It uses one officer working undercover to build relationships on line, collect underage pornography, and bust bad guys, however some believe there are other motives behind building a large database of illegal pornography.

Since its start, Paducah police have managed to charge seven sexual predators wile collecting thousands of images of underage boys and girls performing sexual acts. Detective Mike Wentworth, who examines every photo in detail, is the man being credited with the program's success. Wentworth went into chatrooms, posing as a 14-year-old girl from Paducah.

"I'm a 40-year-old man so its kinda hard for me to understand how a 14-year-old girl actually is," Detective Mike Wentworth said of his role.

But he quickly got the hang of it, according to Laird.

"None actually came to Paducah, they made plans, but for whatever reason they fell through," Laird said of the men caught in the sting operation.

But with evidence in hand, both conversations and pictures, seven arrests were made. The men were as close as Marshall County and from as far away as Montana.

But Laird warned the seven arrests are just the beginning

"If you're a bad guy, we're going to hunt you down and put you in prison," he said. "Simple as that."

And the police detective gets to keep the photographs as "evidence" to review indefinitely at their leisure.

Detective Wentworth refused to comment about his involvement with the photographs.

I have had dealings with Sgt Laird and I got to tell you he might be a good cop but he has no people skills at all. The way he talks to people sucks even when you not the one who is in trouble. I think he needs to go to a class for social skills or something cause he is an ass when it comes to public relations.

he also gets on the stand at jury trial and lies thru his teeth under oath about how he handles cases in his interrogation room. editing videos and taking out his "bad parts" where he is out of control.

So does anyone have any specific evidence or instances of him lying? If you do, I'll use it to pin him up against the wall.

I have dealt with PPD, KSP and MCSO over the years. They have the type of job that no one truly understands until you are there. I may not always agree with the choices that are made, but I respect those choices. Thye do what they feel is right and have to live with that.

As far as Laird and Wentworth, they are well trained officers and should be commended for doing what is right, even when they are second guessed.
