Request To Release Dash Camera Video From the Marcus McGowen Shoot Out
Greetings Police Chief Pat Kitchens:
I hope this correspondence finds you in good spirits. First, let me say that my sympathies are with you and your officers in dealing with the terrible tragedy of witnessing a slain child, while trying to protect the public. My name is Alonzo Washington and I have been a activist and child safety advocate in the greater Kansas City area for over 3 decades. I started my journey to make a difference when I was in my teens.
During my journey I have been successful in assisting various law enforcement agencies in solving a large amount of murders and crimes. High profile cases like the Precious Doe/Erica Green and Renee Pernice cases, to low and no profile murder cases that no one would recall. As a outspoken activist I encourage the public to give tips and I use social media to get the community active in fighting crime. I was the first person in the metro area to use social media to address crime. Now it's a common thing that all law enforcement agencies do.
My task is very difficult because many people in the general pubic don't trust law enforcement. That sentiment is ten times greater in urban communities as it relates to Africa Americans. Doubt and mistrust is building in the community due to the fact that the suspect is African American and the explanations of the events has varied. When citizens from any community doubts a Police Department, crime fighting is hindered. Tips to solve future crimes become harder to obtain and the Kansas City metro suffers.
Currently, its not clear how Cadence Harris was killed. It's not even clear if Marcus McGowen fired his gun at the police or if his bullets killed Cadence Harris. For the sake of clarity & transparency I am requesting that your department release the dash camera video of this tragic event so that the citizens of the metro understands fully what happened during this horrible tragedy. I have a strong feeling that Mr. McGowen's bullets did not kill Cadence Harris. If that turns out to be the case, I would also request that the Leavenworth Police Department review and change it's chase policy of suspects with a child or chidren in a vehicle so that this won't happen again. Please respond to my requests at your earliest convenience. Please review the following information regarding my advocacy.
