TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! ANTI-CRIME ACTIVIST ALONZO WASHINGTON REPORTS THREAT OF STALKING CHARGE FROM KANSAS CITY POLICE OVER SOCIAL MEDIA COVERAGE OF TONI ANDERSON CASE!!!
Kansas City's most prolific anti-crime activist Alonzo Washington reports that he was warned by a KCPD Sargent that he might be charged with stalking due to photos of Toni Anderson's mom at her workplace posted on his social media accounts.
Here's Mr. Washington explaining the crisis: "He told me that if I post photos of Liz Anderson (Toni Anderson) that someone else sent me to try to get tips he would charge me with stalking! I told him how could he do that cause I didn't take the pictures & I was using them to help bring in tips. He said it's causing the mom emotional distress & fear. I told him I feel that same way when I go out in the KCMO inner city with 127 murders from last year that they can't stop. I asked him to be clear is this a crime and he said it could be if I keep posting pics of her at her job that tipsters send me. The KCPD has 17 murders in their city and they are telling me they want to built a stalking case against me for trying to get tips on a missing White stripper! All the while the Anderson Family took money from the public via a Go Fund Me page and didn't use it for what they said they was going to use it for. That's fraud but the KCPD is calling me to harass me. Talk about racism & racial profiling!"
A Twitter message on the topic:
Big picture perspective on the confrontation:
Mr. Washington is taking the argument to Facebook live and explains his side of the story.
Like it or not, candid pictures of a missing person's mom in her workplace aren't really that controversial when it comes to mainstream media coverage of a high profile case. Those obtaining the photos might run into legal compilations but disseminating the information or even allowing other people to post those pix isn't something that has EVER been subject to prosecution.
The question . . .
IS KCPD LIMITING SOCIAL MEDIA FREEDOM OF SPEECH WITH THIS CONVERSATION CRACKDOWN???
Meanwhile, there's very little new info on the Toni Anderson case that has now gone cold.
You decide . . .
