TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY METRO PO-PO ROAD RAGE OVER BAD DRIVING ETIQUETTE OF COLLEAGUE AMID FUNERAL PROCESSION FOR CAPT. MELTON!!!
Here's an important share from our blog community which features KANSAS CITY BEHIND THE SCENES LAW ENFORCEMENT SCUTTLEBUTT and some of the discourse during a tragic occasion.
We're posting this as a BLIND ITEM because we know the funerals are tough and everybody grieves in their own way . . . But it also deserves mention because it reminds us that POLICE ARE REAL PEOPLE who have their differences, disagreements and drama just like everybody else.
Here's the word . . .
"Today, leaving the funeral for KCK Captain Melton in Leavenworth at the military cemetery, A LOCAL POLICE OFFICAL apparently couldn't wait to process out of the cemetery with the literally hundreds of other police vehicles. He decided to drive through the cemetery grass in his police car past the other police vehicles. Had this just been a normal grassy area I get it. It was not. This is a United States government and military cemetery where thousands of our veterans, some of whom died in battle are buried.
I hate to even call him LAW ENFORCEMENT because he doesn't deserve the title, much less the badge. Several people and officers saw this and were disgusted . . ."
Now . . .
We absolutely understand the outrage here from the KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS and a couple of others on the issue of conduct at Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery where Capt. Melton was put to rest . . . But let's also not forget that this is a time of grief and stress for the law enforcement community across the nation so we reserve judgement and, again, simply to remind folks that debate is part of the cycle of life . . .
You decide . . .
