MUST SEE!!! TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY POLICE BRUTALITY WEEKEND PROTEST AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH!!!



This weekend, community activists and organizers hit the streets in order to protest what they consider police brutality.

Even more interestingly . . .

CHECK THESE VIDEO HIGHLIGHT REVEALING WIDESPREAD SUPPORT ON KANSAS CITY STREETS (MAYBE EVEN FROM FIREFIGHTERS) AND OTHER LOCALS WHO SEEMED TO FIND SOLIDARITY AGAINST ALLEGATIONS OF POLICE BRUTALITY!!!

Here's some insight into the clips . . .

"Highlights from the 03-15-14 International Day Against Police Brutality in Kansas City include a woman stopping to tell us about her friend who had been shot repeatedly by a member of the KCPD, a man who gave a detailed account of a member of the KU police shooting him twice, two fire trucks honking and waving in support, and one fire truck actually turning their siren on for half a block."

Now the videos:

Kansas City International Day Against Police Brutality



Another clip . . .

Kansas City Victim of KU Police Brutality



A man-on-the-street interview with someone who was shot twice by KU police. Interview was conducted at the International Day Against Police Brutality demo in Kansas City, Missouri
##########

Now, you decide if that was KCFD support or not . . . However, the fact is that it's important to consider community sentiment on this important topic that has garnered increased attention over the past few months.

Not really sure, would need to see more but I will say that some of these concerns have crept up at local community meetings lately. It seems that there has been more frustration with the complaint process but that is quickly being addressed.

How is it police brutality when the guy from the KCMO FIRE DEPARTMENT was in a drunken rage and was about to beat the cop to death? Give me a fucking break.

So glad I dont live in KCMO. Schools, streets, sewers, crime, and this? The PD and FD having these issues? All these problems and city hall and hand picked contractors are trying to shove a street car and new airport down your throats as the priority?

Seems like a pipe dream.

Would like to hear from cops and firefighters from other cities about their relationship with each others dept. For example, does Overland Park cops and firefighters hate each other like KCMO seems to? Pick a city. I just used OP as an example. I don't get the hatred. Seems to me they would often be at the same places and get to know each other while working towards a common goal. But then again, I don't work in the public sector. So what is the deal?

That is absolutely KCFD support, from Anthony Bruno's own station. I wouldn't expect any less, good for them. The cop dropped a knee and bounced his head off the sidewalk. Only difference, is the cop had a gun and Bruno didn't.

tony is doing the rally a disservice focusing on bruno. bruno was only part of the rally. things like the pregnant woman who's baby was killed by KCPD over an unpaid ticket. things like that and many more.

In KCMO there's a really uncomplicated solution to this problem:
If your house is being broken into or you're being mugged by a street thug, just call your TIF bond attorney, anti-crime nonprofit, or neighborhood activist.
Please tell your next of kin to let the rest of us know how that turns out.

Anonymous said...

11:02 You are right. Tony is really only concerned about one thing. Stirring things up. Ever since Bruno was killed, Tony has been trying to stir up some FD vs PD type cold war, that really isn't there. Yeah, Bruno's own station honked when they saw his name on a sign. Big deal. There are several thousand firefighters and cops that have worked together on several thousand calls since Bruno was killed with no problems at all. Tony has an agenda, it's to stir things up at all cost because it's what brings the most attention to his blog.

People want protection from their local police department, they want fast response to their issues but can never understand they are not the only ones with needs or that spending 100 hours of manpower looking for an 80 dollar Walkman just isn’t using common sense. They want officers to be both tough and pussy's as well. I would hate to be any sort of cop, as mild mannered as I am even I have a point somewhere where I will say enough is enough and will answer anger with words, violence with violence, all human beings are that way. I have witnessed a few acts of officers in action a few times in different locations. I was at Daytona for the NASCAR races this early spring and saw Daytona’s finest dealing with a totally wild drunk. I saw it from beginning to end since it happened right outside my room two floors above ground I with the little lady and friends had a captive view of it all. This fool was ready to fight three officers and to hurt them no doubt if he could; he had already put down two security guards. He hit one officer with a deck chair, ripped a baton out of another’s hands and tried to hit with it before being brought to the ground in a dog pile effect that knocked his ass out when the drunks head hit the concrete I am guessing. But to be very honest I don’t care if he had died. He was asked many times to place his hands behind head and kneel down on the ground and to this he responded with even more rage. Were the officers a little rough with the drunk? Maybe, that depends on your view of the situation and rather or not you saw it, none of us watching it thought they over reacted.

But you who scream police brutality I have to ask just how long are you going to just stand there and let someone hit you with objects, call even your mother names, swing at you with clinched fists, yell at you about how bad they are and how bad they are going to fucking you up, kicking you or knocking you down and start beating the hell out of you before something in your brain kicks in and says this is now a case of me or him? Till you have walked the walk as they say and seen it all I have to say, let’s be careful about using the words “Police Brutality” unless you want to be known as a criminal’s advocate. We can’t have law and order without some forms of violence or acts of violence as the criminals and losers of society have showed us time and time again they are not going to obey the laws of the land nor respect any kind of authority. Before someone says that officers are supposed to be trained for this type of responses I as well ask how do you train someone to just stand there and do nothing as someone is trying to kill or cripple them? I am very sure none of you are going to just stand there and let that happen.

Oh for the simple minded race baiters this drunk appeared to be an early thirties white male with a very WWF looking body and was pissed we gather because the wife packed up and left and his friends ran off with his car keys because they couldn’t deal with him.

Jeebuz, how can you take yourselves seriously when you can't even spell correctly?

Tony, this wide-open comment format might spin you up some internet traffic numbers, but your quality of posts (and related comments) are heading south on an exponential rate of speed.

The ones who used to leak insider crap about City Hall have dismissed you and your site populated, MOSTLY, by racist punks, and those who get their jollies bu posting disrespectful comments about the local fairer sex.

I "get-it" when your ego is pandered to when you hear yourself cited on a reputable news outlet. When you find that citing occurring less and less, pull back and wrap your mind around those that you are pandering to. It will then make sense.

Cops have to wear little cameras on their chests in Oakland. Police brutality dropped overnight when they started doing that.

1:11 Pointing out that we are a bunch of douchebags who should never be given a forum is kind of pointless as it is so blatantly obvious. I just like that TKC's blog has a built-in spell check so we can figure out what people are saying at all.

I've never actually had a KCPD lay any hands on me. They do not fuck around in Killa City with the 5-0 but all in all as a white male who isn't involved in criminal activities and doesn't speed I don't get hassled a whole lot.

The York County Sheriff's Department released the video from the February 25th incident on Thursday. The deputy pulled over a truck and the victim can be seen getting out of his truck and reaching for something in the bed.

After telling the man to get back in the truck and seeing him pull the item out of the bed, the deputy tried to get the man's attention before he opened fire. The officer fired 6-8 shots at the man and then yelled at him to "put down the gun".

The senior citizen was reaching for a can in the bed of his truck.

Someone said earlier not doing as told causes more issues than any brutality does.

But it's simple people shit is going to happen sometimes but the options to eliminate it are not there either.

It's time to follow up on a sue the Fire department members involved in their on duty speech. It isn't protected speech and I'm going to be forcing them to do what their leaders won't do. The Garcetti ruling denies public employees perceived first amendment rights while on duty. This is ridiculous and they need to lose their jobs, and pay for their actions.

5:38 fire truck drivers are responsible for deciding when and when not to use horns and sirens. There is no way to really know why that siren was on. Aside from that, if fire fighters are indeed in favor of cops not murdering people, that is a GOOD thing.

The issue of public safety is in the hands of the Fire Department. When a KCPD Officer kills KCFD personnel made police business fire safety business.

ChrisDorner4Prez2016 said...

All cops are cowards. If you watch the video with Bruno you can clearly see the cop escalates the situation, and takes on someone physically that he can't handle, when the person starts whooping his weak ass he gets scared and murders an unarmed person. Take a look through the history of KCPD murders, most of them the victims are unarmed or unequally armed (a knife or a bat to defend themselves), and always the stories don't add up to what is found out if there is an investigation.
Having a badge and a uniform does not give you the right to kill people because you want to, or because they don't listen to you.

It doesn't take very much digging online to see there is a trend of problems with the KCPD, how about that rape ring they had going on a few years ago?

Police exist only to defend private property, they are thugs. When you have a system that forces people into poverty they will do what is necessary to survive.

1... your obviously an idiot if you think bruno was "murdered"

2... your an idiot if you think its solely the driver's decision on when to use the sirens. Policy governs the use of the siren...not the driver. Would be hard for him to explain his reason for using the siren if they were not enroute to a call. Since your so smart, why dont you enlighten us with a few possible excuses?

Let's see what we have here. Angry crowds in the street--threatening violence if they don't get their way on certain criminal cases--"No Justice, No Peace" is an unsubtle way of threatening a race riot if you don't get your way. Demands by angry community leaders for "swift justice" with "no legal niceties." KCMO in 2014? No, Atlanta in 1915 on the eve of the lynching of Leo Frank, a Jewish businessman falsely accused of raping and murdering a young white woman. Oh, and by the way, the people in this angry crowd in 1915 are wearing white robes and they like to burn crosses. Sad to tell all of the people at today's rallies this point, but ours in a nation in which everyone is entitled to due process. And "everyone" means just that: It is just as wrong in 2014 to deny due process to a white cop accused of racism as it was in 1915 to deny due process to a black man accused of raping a white woman. To the people at today's rallies: You are marching in the footsteps of the Ku Klux Klan; those guys in white robes are you "soul mates." "The more things change, the more they remain the same." Take care. Sincerely and Respectfully, Ernest Evans

So funny how many people complain about the police. There has to be some kind of law and order to have a peaceful society. Someone give me an example of a peaceful/developed society that does not have some sort of police force in place. EVERYONE has police because they are necessary.

Sure there are those big talkers who talk about how they don't need the police...how they can take care of themselves and their family. BUT thats all they are...talkers. The only reason you may not NEED the police...is because there ARE police (and the criminal justice system) to keep evil in check.
