TKC BREAKING NEWS MUST READ!!! EPIC KANSAS CITY LAW ENFORCEMENT DEBATE!!! SCATHING OPEN LETTER FROM KCK POLICE UNION PREZ RAGES AGAINST KCPD CHIEF FORTÉ: 'YOU ARE ONLY MAKING IT WORSE'



This note revealing Kansas City police conflict is spreading like wildfire across the local Internets and requires very little prelude, it speaks for itself and calls the KCMO Chief into questions for his recent statements.



Checkit:


“AN OPEN LETTER TO KCMO PD POLICE CHIEF DARRYL FORTE”



Dear Chief Forte:

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Scott Kirkpatrick and I am the President of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4 in Kansas City, Kansas. I am writing to you to address some misguided and dangerous statements that you made with regard to police use of force in a recent Kansas City Star interview.

As you know, our Department has experienced unprecedented anguish and grief in the aftermath of the murder of our friends, colleagues and brothers, Det. Brad Lancaster and Captain Robert Melton. We have spent the last two months mourning the loss of these two brave men. We all are trying to heal. Many are trying to resist the urge to throw in the towel and leave law enforcement. Chief Zeigler, through both of these terrible tragedies, has provided untold support to our officers. He has worked tirelessly to keep our morale high, and we applaud him for it.

However, your misguided statements in your recent interview have again torn those healing wounds wide open. In your interview, you say that the recent killing of suspects is a result of as you say “UNREASONABLE FEAR.” When I heard those words, I had to listen to them again because I could not believe that the head of a well-respected law enforcement agency, and person who wears the uniform, would make such ridiculous uninformed comments.

First, how would you pretend to know what was in the hearts of any of those officers. You have not spoken to them, nor you do know them. You have not been directly or indirectly involved in the investigation so you could not and do not know all the facts. Nevertheless, your uninformed speculation is just fuel to the fire of those who have already demonstrated a desire and willingness to harm police officers. When the enemies of justice see comments like this from you as a Chief, it gives them all the license they need to engage in unimaginably callous acts against those you are supposed to represent.

Second and most importantly, to suggest that an officer’s fear at any time is per se unreasonable without knowing the facts represents a monumental misunderstanding of the job we are doing out of the streets in the current climate. Officers are rightfully on edge. They have seen their brothers and sisters gunned down in cold blood simply for wearing the uniform. You say that their fear is unreasonable. Well tell that to Det. Lancaster’s wife and daughters. Tell that to Captain Melton’s children and loved ones. Tell that to the families of officers in New York, Dallas and Baton Rouge and as close as Baldwin, Missouri. The fear is real. People are out to harm us. And now your comments will only make things worse.

On behalf of all the officers I represent, and those that work in and around Kansas City who saw your comments, I ask that you retract your statement immediately and apologize to the families of those fallen officers your words have harmed some completely and so unbelievably.

Right now, you are a detriment to our profession. You are not helping. You are only making it worse.

Well done, sir.

Kansas City residents are in a tough spot when even the metro police can't agree and are fighting in public. I respect both these men but with so much stress for law enforcement during this time, I'm surprised we aren't seeing much solidarity.

In fact, the divisions in Kansas City are becoming clearer every day.

KCK Police have endured some horrible losses and they deserve their say. Thank you for posting this TKC, I hope the rest of the media picks this up. This is a must read for people who really want to know the consequences of so many people targeting police.

Maintenance and repair worker. The 14th most dangerous job in America. Police officer. 15th most dangerous job in America.

The government has moved all kinds of third world people into Black areas in KCK in an effort to stabilize them. They have done this because most White people with any type of job skill do not want to live near Blacks and more importantly do not have to. Instead of facing the underlying cause of the racial conflict (genetics) they bring in third world immigrants to keep the lights running, mend the gunshot wounds and fix the slushy machines.

So when you visit one of these areas in KCK it is like walking into a third world airport. I think liberals and even many conservatives hope these third world amalgamations will interbreed and create some brown American urban mongrel that has no real identity but is more docile than the natives and keeps buying shoes and cheeseburgers. This is of course a fantasy as third worlders have zero interest in breeding with Blacks. Hollywood has been unable to convince them that's it cool to sleep with negros. Just walk into a mall in one of these areas and count the number of Asian/Black or Arab/Black couples. To this day I have not seen an Arab woman with an American Black.

Police board really needs to think about asking the chief to tender his resignation. Fighting with other departments undermines all of kc efforts against crime.

Mr. Union Man, where's your letter to Rev. Mayor Holland? Or are you people going to kiss his ass for another 4 years?

I've worked with every police chief since Chief Caron in the late 70's. I think Chief Forte is the best chief KC has ever had. I think Kirkpatrick is a little out of line trying to read more into something just to blow it out of proportion. I'm over 60 and white and I stand behind Forte.

Super Dave said...

About time others stepped up to the plate and stuffed something in Fortes face telling him he is an idiot.

Another Midtown Mom said...

I blame the Star for leading the Chief into troubling questions. This is a disaster for local police. I think they need to get this straightened out because it looks just awful for all of KC to have the police fighting with one another.

That is ugly to hear, but true. Very true.

Totally agree that Kirkpatrick won this. He did the right thing is standing up for his colleagues and his department.

The comment from KCK was out of line.

Look at all the problems they have had with corruption over the past years, that shows you that they are an undisciplined department and demeaning another law enforcement official is a horrible thing to see. The union rep needs to apologize for the good of the city and for the good of bot departments involved.

Greedo said...

+1 with Dave. It's time for people to step up and speak up. There are some mistaken people in this thread and we need to show others that we can debate and have disagreements but still work together. That's what a Democracy is all about.

I would agree with the union guy IF it wasn't for the fact that KCK is such a dump.

Racism is tearing this nation apart. I don't think this fight between police is going to help. What happens when the police can't police themselves?

Way behind I hope !

Apparently, Slie and Forte are following the Obama narrative against cops. Will KCMO chief keep his job or get promoted if Obama federalizes our Police Department? How big a job can Slie get? Secretary of Streetcars may be on the horizon.

I am w/ Forte. KCMO has benefited from his leadership of KCPD - i.e. no Ferguson, no Dallas, no Baton Rouge!

I don't like the idea that we need a black police chief to prevent riots. That's the worst kind of extortion public life has to offer.

And if it's true then there are other candidates besides Forte.

Clint Eastwood thinks America’s “pussy generation” needs to “just f–ing get over” Donald Trump’s “racism.”

In an interview with Esquire published Wednesday, the actor/director/producer said young America — which he has dubbed both the “kiss-ass” and “pussy” generation — needs to stop calling things racist.

“[Trump’s] onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” he said. “We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

Oh, little snowflakes, when did you all become grandmothers and society matrons, clutching your pearls in horror at someone who has an opinion about something, a way of expressing themselves that's not the mirror image of yours?

Fellow great whites, here and abroad, keep preaching the importance of finding you a worthy white soul mate and breed! Have children! Many of them! This will insure a future for White America. Do your part, and if you are done doing your part of bringing life into this world, teach your children and preach to other white people to do the same. Plant the roots. It's the first and foremost only way to insure the preservation of white people for generations to come !!

Forte is just pandering to his base of power. Without the support of the black community, he would have no support at all. He lacks everything a Chief should have; intelligence, leadership, and honor. More importantly, he lacks the support of the brave men and women of the KCPD. He will not, however, go quietly. He, like Corwin before him, are all about self-enrichment. As long as he's banking tens of thousands of dollars a year in comp time, he's not going anywhere.

6:46 PM I agree especially what you said about Corwin.
He's a self serving piece of shit.

TKC, you need to find the press release made by the Kansas City, MO FOP in response to the Chef's comments. Officers just got the notification about an hour ago. About time they spoke up!

This is like choosing between Clinton and Trump. They are both full of shit, suck to hell and everything they open their pie holes they are either blowing smoke or proving what idiots we are forced to deal with..

Are maintenance and repair workers murdered in the commission of their duties? No? Then shut the FUCK up.

Kudos to you Scott! Thanks for speaking up in regards to his embarrassing comments. He has put anyone who is wearing blue and works the streets for a living more of a target than ever. I'm glad that someone within our own FOP has finally spoken up. I think if it wasn't for your post, I think truly no one within our organization would have spoken up. Thanks for being the initial voice!

Your brother(s) in blue across the the River.

Embarrassing is right. What a thing to say at this time. Feel bad for the officers that have to work under these circumstances.

You all do know the KCMO FOP put out a similar letter to Forte right?

Obviously you haven't done your homework? The corruption you speak of is a two way street dating back many, many years ago in Kansas City. Corruption was one of the reasons the Kansas City Police Department was taken over by and is still ran by the state today. Now the city wants to take back over when it cant even fund the police department with more officers? Which mind you we are all "promised" if the so called sales tax passed??? Heck it takes forever just to get an officer to respond out??? Union rep has no apologie what so ever? Comment was out of line. If an officer would have said it that comment I bet his a $$ would be gone!!!

The Chief of the KCPD is only pandering to the blacks of his city. That is where his power is based, just like all blacks in higher community positions, most will always pander to the black community in an attempt to appease people from that particular faction. Even though Kansas City is still 75% white, that doesn't concern him, his power is based in the black community and that's where his loyalty will always lie.
