Police And Fire Hope To Move Past Kansas City Deadly Shooting Media Drama
This one should be obvious but more than a few of you have expressed this sentiment and nobody else is putting it out there . . .
Both KCPD and KCFD rank and file are hoping to put Kansas City controversy regarding a deadly altercation in the past.
The case has been decided, and real talk . . . A lot of people behind the scenes basically see nothing more than a media circus that doesn't help the public interest.
Here are the latest links on the topic . . .

NBC Action News: No charges against KCPD officer who shot, killed KC firefighter
This very well seems to be one of the final chapters in the drama and an insider said this:
"If you know either family involved in this ordeal, you know that this isn't doing them any good and I'm not sure how it qualifies as news when all of the details have already been reported. How is this informing people? That's the important question to ask."
While there might be some legal ramifications and different interpretations of the video . . . I was disappointed that there was never a joint presser between police and fire on this one. Again, the bright side now is that now both sides seem to be moving forward after the tragedy.
