"Wyandotte County deputy arrested, fired in connection to forgery and theft case"

"It's unclear exactly what his alleged crimes entail, or if any other people were involved in or outside the sheriff's office."

Great news!
Shot Spotter technology was used to make 60 arrests for "celebratory gunfire" last July 4.
But so far this year there are 69 murders in KCMO and not even half of them will ever be solved or so much as arrests made.
Somehow maybe the priorities seem a bit upside down.
