Sgt. Ramona And More KC Makers



No, this isn't a band but a great profile on KCPT featuring one of my heroes along with tributes to other inspiring Kansas City women:

KC Maker: Ramona Arroyo - The Local Show

More KCPT detail on a lady we always felt should have been promoted even higher:

"Our MAKER spent 30 years on the Kansas City Missouri police force and while you may not know her name or may have never heard her story, Ramona Arroyo is the first Hispanic woman to become a sergeant with the KCPD."

Other profiles worth checking . . .

KC Maker: Suzanne Gladney - The Local Show

Just how stupid does "Sergeant Ramona" sound?? Kinda like "Officer Peggy"...

Not as stupid as “Captain Dick“ which is what 9:22 aspires to be!

Mona should have been promoted. Good for her to have received this honor. Thanks for posting, T.

Dodie is a self serving cunt. Don't be fooled by her game. She is a liar just like her sperm drop brother.

I love Ramona, but we should not give spots due to race. Lets put the best person there. I know, this is a hard concept to understand.

Its that kind of racist attitude is why she never got past Sgt, if she were black she would be Deputy Chief, just ask Julia Bush!

I really liked Ramona, but she was over her head as a sergeant. Her real claim to fame was shooting her girlfriend in the stomach during an argument and getting off on self defense. Otherwise, she didn't do anything to distinguish herself, hispanic or not.
