PITCH PLAYS DANGEROUS GAME WITH KANSAS CITY POLICE VS. FIREFIGHTER DEADLY ALTERCATION STORY!!!
Kansas City newsprint is in trouble and there's nothing that will save outdated technology.
Don't believe TKC? Realize that only adorable nerd hobbyists still collect vinyl records and they're not really buying new music. Just in the past few years the music game has switched from MP3s to Internets streaming services. And the Pitch hasn't exceeded more than 50 editorial pages in more than 2 years.
But I digress . . .
This one is a MUST READ from The Pitch, which is still our favorite paper despite it all . . .
CHECK THE PITCH HIT PIECE IN THE AFTERMATH OF A DEADLY KCPD VS. KCFD ALTERCATION!!!
Here's the headline that really should reveal the narrative of the story . . .
Cop Donald Hubbard said he had no choice when he shot and killed firefighter Anthony Bruno last fall. That's because he'd already made some bad decisions
We've talked this one to death and what should concern our TKC Blog Community is that this isn't the only controversial police shooting for 2014 . . . There are several other cases that might require further investigation. . . But they're all east of Troost or in the deep, deep Northeast.
This one has attracted newsie attention . . . And it's not the honeymoon angle that's makes the story unique.
Still, there's no arguing this stuff is captivating.
As for the choice of image . . . Another look at the story could result in this photo being used instead as a representation of the deadly altercation.
You decide . . .
