Sgt. Derwin Longmire, Lead investigator in Bailey case being transferred - Inside Bay Area

Lead investigator in Bailey case being transferred - Inside Bay Area: “OAKLAND — Homicide Sgt. Derwin Longmire, whose investigation of journalist Chauncey Bailey's 2007 killing is itself the subject of investigation, is being reassigned to the patrol division in February in what commanders said Friday was a move based solely on department transfer policies.
Calling Longmire a good investigator, Assistant Chief Howard Jordan said Friday the transfer was not for disciplinary reasons or because of his handling of the Bailey case. Jordan said Longmire is "termed out" in how long he could stay in the Criminal Investigation Division, of which homicide is a part.
Jordan said if the department "makes an exception for (Longmire), we have to make exceptions for other people," which can't be done.
The Chauncey Bailey Project reported in October that Longmire failed to document in his case notes on the Bailey killing evidence that pointed to a conspiracy to kill the journalist involving the former leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery, Yusuf Bey IV.”
