READ EXCLUSIVE TKC TIPSTER TESTIMONY REGARDING INSIDER DETAILS OF AN ONGOING KCPD DISCRIMINATION CASE!!!
More than a year ago KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS BROKE NEWS of the case and we were pretty much the only media outlet to cover the controversy.
It's on Casenet for everybody to see but few newsies dare to follow-up on the details.
1116-CV32742 - CHAD RIVES V RANDALL HUNDLEY ET AL (E-CASE)
Now here's the message sent my way . . .
1116-CV32742 - CHAD RIVES V RANDALL HUNDLEY ET AL (KC Board Of Police Commissioners )
Depositions are underway regarding the upcoming civil trial against Deputy Chief Randall Hundley, Major Floyd Mitchell, and Deputy Chief Kevin Masters. Several members of the Investigations Bureau and other bureaus have been called in to depose their knowledge of the allegations.
In my years in law enforcement, I have given several depositions for criminal cases in front of defense attorneys. Neither I nor any other cop I know has ever had the defendant present during the deposition.
In the depositions given by several KCPD department members, TOP RANKING KCPD OFFICIALS sat across the table from them, staring them down the entire time. This was a blatant attempt at intimidation. Keep in mind that THESE ARE TOP RANKING OFFICIALS in the Investigations Bureau, and the Violent Crimes Division. These two civil defendants positioned themselves across the table from witnesses against them, but below them in their chain of command.
Despite the allegations of racism and corruption that have been launched against TOP KCPD OFFICIALS, our current chief has chosen to promote them both. This further alleges corruption among top command staff of the KCPD.
Again, we know this stuff is important so we don't want to screw around . . . I've edited the names concerning direct allegations out of this message and it's not because of ingratitude but because I haven't yet had a chance to confirm independently . . . Yet. Also, all city orgs have a standing policy that they won't discuss ongoing litigation. But off the record, what you see posted does check out with multiple sources . . . Who, for obvious reasons, want to stay off the record.
But I can confirm this . . .
ALLEGATIONS OF DISCRIMINATION AGAINST LOWER RANKING WHITE OFFICERS AND ENSUING RACIAL TENSION AMONG ALL KCPD EMPLOYEES REMAINS ONE OF THE TOP CONCERNS AMONG KCPD INSIDERS!!!
It's my own opinion but one that is shared by KC Insiders that Mayor Sly James isn't helping the situation that's reaching a boiling point.
Now . . . For my own protection and to make sure this TKC Free Speech And Fun Zone sticks around I was advised to take a few precautionary measures on this post and I've done them all. If lawyers, courts or judges want to know the origin of the message they can politely ask Jeff Zuckerburg by way of a $100 message or maybe go see if they can understand the Indian dudes running my e-mail server who speak in a delightfully rich and charming Hindi accent because it has been DELETED from everything I own and control . . . And I've already forgotten even the address of the anonymous re-mailer that might have forwarded it my way.
But more importantly . . . THE TOPIC OF SERIOUS KCPD RACIAL DIVISIONS hasn't even been discussed as we move closer to putting the topic of local police control before voters and Missouri Legislators.
