Detroit Officer Cleared in Accidental Discharge Death

February 10, 2014  | 

A Detroit police officer has been cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a woman who was dancing during a party in his backyard, the Associated Press reports.

Two probes were conducted after 24-year-old Adaisha Miller was shot July 8, 2012 at officer Isaac Parrish’s northwest Detroit home, according to the Wayne County prosecutor’s office.

Adaisha Miller was celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday and was invited to a fish fry by friends who knew the officer, her mother, Yolanda McNair, said after the shooting.

Police said then that Miller “embraced” Parrish from behind while dancing. Parrish, now 40, was wearing his police-issued handgun on his waist, and it fired striking Miller once. The slug punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart. She died at a hospital.

Well of course he was cleared, was there ever any doubt?
What a wonderful 25th birthday present from someone so
frightened he feels the need to wear a gun in his own back
yard. Can't remember the last time I heard of a cop being
held responsible for murder.

Lenny, how in the heck do you hold the officer responsible for this? I guess you haven't been paying attention if you can't remember the last time.

Lenny @ 2/10/2014 6:39 PM

@ Tim
Well let's see, his gun, in his waistband, no safety, one in the chamber.
Who should be responsible the cat?

"Embraced her from behind...and his handgun fired hitting her lung/heart". HUH?

What sort of holster points the barrel up so her lung/heart would have been pierced? Safety not on (what type of pistol?)...was the offcer 7' tall and the victim 3' tall? This one does stink a bit.
