Detroit police officer Michael Woody was abusive and violent to his wife and children, according to his ex-wife, Kimberly Holt.
She says Michael Woody kicked Kimberly and her children out of their home. Later, she says he showed up at Kimberly’s new home, threatened her, choked her, held her down, and raped her.
Kimberly Holt is one of the victims of law enforcement abuse and government corruption who has been filmed for Lawless America…The Movie.
I met with Kimberly Holt on July 26, 2012 in Southfield, Michigan. She was extremely nervous. Kimberly had recently learned about Lawless America…The Movie, and some new friends encouraged her to participate. This is the first time she has spoken publicly about her ordeal.
Kimberly Holt says she is a victim of OIDV — Officer Induced Domestic Violence. Here’s what she told the camera:
Detroit policeman Michael Woody’s outburts with his family grew into complete rage. On April 16, 2010, he kicked is wife and children out of ther home. He told Kimberly that he would make her life a living Hell. Then the emotional and physical abuse escalated.
In August 2010, he came to Kimberly’s new home, threatened her, choked her, held her down, and raped her. Kimberly reported the crime, but the police did nothing. Kimberly Holt never received any help from those who are supposed to help. The police covered for one of their own.
Michael Woody had tools to continue his abuse. He had a weapon. He had skills. Detroit policeman Michael Woody did things designed to keep his ex-wife quiet about the abuse.
Victims of OIDV need somewhere to go, but they have no one. Police officers who commit crimes should go to prison, but they are often protected by their fellow police personnel.
Kimberly Holt has three children, and they have had to go through this with their mother. It has affected the children greatly. Kimberly’s son said to her: “Mommy, I’m sorry your heart’s broken, but I am glad I no longer have to hide in the basement.”
Kimberly says she has felt victimized again and again. She said: “I’m not the criminal here, but I have been made to feel that way.”
Kimberly Holt is afraid that Detroit Police Sergeant Michael Woody will show up at her door to hurt her. She fears character assassination. But she wanted to tell her story publicly, and she felt relieved when she did.
Kimberly Holt seems to be a beautiful woman, inside and out. Thyere are many victims of Officer Induced Domestic Violence, and we the people need to give Kimberly and the others a place to go with their abuse complaints. Our proposed legislation will do just that; Kimberly and all victims of law enforcement abuse will be able to take their complaints to special grand juries, if we can get the state legislators’ to pass this proposed legislation.
I am calling on the authorities in Michigan to open an investigation into this matter. If what Kimberly Holt told me is valid, I believe Sergeant Michael Woody of the Detroit Police Department needs to be indicted, arrested, convicted, imprisoned, and put into prison with the general population. I have invited Sergeant Michael Woody to be interviewed.
