How long can Rep. Fred Upton keep protecting Berrien County corrupt cops & court?

(shortened article with commentary)
Dep. chief hired as Coloma police chief By Julie Swidwa, Sat., 3/7/09
BENTON HARBOR - Benton Harbor Police Deputy Chief Randel Pompey will leave the department at the end of this month to become chief of the Coloma Township Police Department.
[POMPEY, MINGO, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT OTHER COPS WILL GET OUT OR TRY TO SINCE ANDREW COLLINS WAS IMPRISONED. MANY OF THEM ARE IMPLICATED AND COULD ALSO FACE CONVICTIONS. POMPEY'S DEPARTURE IS NOT SURPRISING. IF, FOR SOME REASON, REP. FRED UPTON CAN'T PROTECT THEM ANY LONGER AND THE FEDS CHARGE IN...FEW WOULD BE SPARED SENTENCING.]
...Mingo, in a separate interview, said he does not plan to work in Benton Harbor much longer. He said he is under no pressure to leave, but "my immediate plan is not to finish out my contract."
Mingo is contracted with the city through 2013. He said he is getting tired, has some health problems with cold weather and has been further worn down by pending criminal cases involving two former Benton Harbor police officers.
