Hit job. This guy he won the lawsuit against is a big time wacko.

Yep, this crime is in good hands alright.
And the Chief wants millions more for what.

Attorney was Tom Pickert. A good guy and great lawyer. Police are looking for van owned by David Jungerman. Tom won a $5.75M verdict against Jungerman in a July. Guy is a total crazy bastard, he represented himself. Tom was in the process of attaching liens to all of his property. Jungerman was sued for shooting a homeless guy at his business resulting in an amputation. KMBC did a story on this in January...good job Kelly Eckerman.

One more NRA Responsible Gun Owner posterboy-- right up until he gets pissed and murders someone who offended him.

Of course, the guy got to keep his guns -- even after shooting an unarmed homeless guy looking to sleep somewhere warm.

Here in Northeast. Two days, two murders. Gunshots nightly. Slashed tires. Windows broken with rocks and BBs, property damage and theft, business holdups on the avenue. Now, a fellow shot on his porch in Brookside. At some point perhaps we, as a city, should stop with the millennial pleasing, streetcar praising, and airport BS and deal with public safety. The neglect of basic safety is criminal, no pun intended.

Hey maybe it was Jack The Ripper, right Tony? Because Jack the Ripper is definitely a possibility. It could have been Jack the Ripper. Yeah, it was probably Jack the Ripper.

This is why Sly stopped chasing ambulances and became the cabin boy for the chamber of commerce's poop deck. It's much safer kissing ass at JJ's then being out in front of one's own home in this city.

Fucking insane that professionals are getting killed in Brookside. It may be a personal thing but it speaks to lawlessness in KC.

Hyperblogal's comments are the best. Things are getting out of control here while the mayor is working on the airport and the hotel.

KCPD has failed the community again.

Phil, have you looked at this guys case net records? I’m pretty sure he should have been in jail by now but he somehow managed to stay out of jail because some lawyer like you made sure he stayed out. This nutcase is being sued left and right, has multiple harassment cases, been divorced twice in the space of one year. He’s 79 yrs old and I’m sure after this shit he probably was not legally allowed to own or possess a gun. But your kind made sure he didn’t go to jail so maybe the next person you represent that should be in jail how about making sure he gets there.

Phil is 100% correct. We need to change the gun laws or Kansas City is just going to keep on getting more violent with more killings.

How would the police have prevented this crime ? Left his van, known issue with victim he obviously did not care. He would have shot with a cop car driving by.

Who cares about that fucking dump the Northeast?

Nobody, is who. Isn't two murders in two days par for the course up there? And aren't we better off without all those losers anyway?

Anybody get a license place up that way? Of course not. Dinsee Nuffins!! Dindu's little brother.

But responsible humans in Brookside took good notes.

5:26 look up hey jackass in Chicago and ask them how their super strict gun laws are working out for them. Ask Phil how many bad guys he’s defended and kept out of jail only for them to do something even worse, but hey, easy money with no conscious pays off for all lawyers

Go the fuck away you fat tub of shit. We are tired of idiots like you who post dumb shit like this. You’re nothing but a feckless troll.

Isn't it interesting you never hear of someone getting a license plate or identification of a suspect when the victim is black?

When they're humans, the case gets solved immediately. Isn't that interesting? I think that shows blacks aren't human.

Really shit-eater, how? How did the police fail us here? What did they do to cause this you dumb motherfucker? You fucking idiot....they can’t stop someone from murdering someone. God, did you even attend school you fucking goon? Your shitty logic shows you to be one dumb fuck. Go the guck away dummy. Let the adults talk.

Yeah, let's really restrict guns more heavily, then we will be safer like citizens of Chicago. Now, about that bridge-------, I'm only asking $$$ for it.

Fuck Phil and his fat Jabba the Hut looking twat of a wife. The city and Mayor created this bloody mess. They cut the department to the bones and left the city with less officers. You fucks get what you deserve.

3:43 the better question is where were all those cops when the poor guy needed them. And where did they all come from and why so many for a dead guy? Makes you wonder if the rest of the city had any cops around during this investigation

Anonymous said...

Oh, what a god-awful, crying shame, hell's bells, a few popos and a couple of detectives who are assigned to yet another frequent homocide scene in Killa City dare to appear relaxed and unfazed. Yeah, well, perhaps they're awaiting authorized CSI to come on scene or finish. Did ya consider that the leads of the squad are maybe conducting live training with a popo or two, standing nearby, who put in for detective slots?

Like no city employees EVER take a long lean on a shovel (or snooze in the truck) in the city parks, or courthouse clerks chit chat in hallways (or refresh makeup and hair while chatting some more in ladies rooms), or mayors get photographed wearing crooked bowties while yet, again, shilling for the pay-to-plays.

Yep, cop haters wanna do kneejerk assumptions of the worst about PD.

Just sayin, 15 cops in the pictures plus traffic cops sitting in cars blocking traffic and crime scene detectives, probably over twenty cops there. Not hating on cops just wondering why so many

Phil Cardarella, WTF? Do you actually have a law degree? Seriously, every post of yours I've seen here gives the impression that you're not paying yourself any compliments and probably losing potential clients.

No that’s a fucking dumb question. You’re every bit the dumb motherfucker 3:43 is. You don’t know Dick about police work, but here you are running your ignorant mouth just the same. Jesus Christ, this blog attracts some of the dumbest people in the city. I didn’t wonder if the rest of the city had any cops around. Only morons like you would. Seriously, who takes care of you? You’re too fucking stupid to make it through the day unsupervised.

To late to change gun laws. Too many guns on the steets that are stolen or illegal. By restricting gun laws now you are really only hurting the law abiding citizens. Now if they raised the mimimum sentencing to a hard 50 years for being a criminal with a stolen or illegal gun or committing a crime with one that would be a start.

So this guy shoots a couple of boon thugs stealing his property. What the fuck is wrong with that? If they'd allow the killing of a few more of those mother fuckers maybe these shit bag felons would start toeing the line instead of becoming role models for the dregs and butt sucking libtards.

I feel bad for this guys kids and wife but we are past the point of tolerating lawyers who fuck with good people so they can make money and help bad guys. This lawyer somehow won a case against the guy who murdered him. What did that guy do to get sued? He defended his business from robbers. He shot one and the guy had to have his leg amputated.

Seriously - this guy was pushed over the edge and fucked by this attorney and the law. I hope Gov Greitens pardons this guy and lets place some blame on the judge who did not throw out the case as well as the legislature that allows convicted felons to sue for injuries sustained while committing a felony.

Lesson learned? when defending your house or business and you fear for your life, shoot until the guy is stopped and the only way to ensure that they are stopped is to shoot until they are dead.

What this guy did was not right, but it was not wrong.

this punishment of the innocent is why we have #2A

Good riddance. Sorry, but defending someone who broke into a place to rob it and later sues for their injuries is a piece of shit. Just like his client. Enjoy hell.

The female KCPD officers on camera always look like they are trying to stuff themselves into uniforms they wore right out of the academy. The uniforms are so tight you can see the chunks and ripples in their thighs and butts.
Actually Embarrassing to witness.
