KANSAS CITY SUNDAY TESTIMONY!!! REMEMBER 1988 FIREFIGHTER TRAGEDY!!!
This week Bryan Sheppard was set free following a decision that basically nullified his mistaken conviction and sentencing. Accordingly, here's an interesting reaction on this topic along with an important recollection. Take a look:
TKC Blog Community Testimony After Tragic Firefighter Death And Recent Court Decision
The day before this incident, I had just dropped 24 tons of AB3 to that job Site, not 150 feet from those trailers, it was cool and misting rain.
Got off work, and was laying in bed wayyyy over in Johnson County. Merriam to be exact that early morning when I heard a loud clap of thunder, or what I thought was thunder . . . It actually rumbled the house and the entire neighborhood. It wasn't until later that morning that we learned what actually happened.
I had delivered 24 tons of AB3 to a construction company what was then known back in 1988, as Mountain Plains Construction . . . They more less were the general Contractor on that site.
Later Mountain Plains Construction was brought into the lawsuit and legal fiasco and CONFRONTED FINANCIAL HARDSHIPS AMID fines and lawsuits.
I remember seeing the trailers parked there, but didn't know what was inside them and I was less than 150 feet away from them.
I can only imagine what would of happened would they have gone off while I was dumping my load of AB3 . . . I'd been vaporized turned into Dust and ashes . . .
This is the 1st time and only time I've ever publicly shared this story.
