KANSAS CITY POLICE BELIEVE TOM PICKERT MURDER WAS 'TARGETED SHOOTING' AND NO DANGER TO BROOKSIDE!?!?!
A bold statement from authorities put on blast by ABC News attempts to reassure an embattled middle-class enclave.
Take a look:
ABC report last line: "Jungerman is not a suspect at this time but police believe this was a targeted shooting and there is no danger to the public."
This might or might not be reassuring to all of the Brookside denizens who are pretty quick to panic anyoo.
Meanwhile, there's a lot of interesting misinformation out there as the politics of the crime and the constant Conservative vs. Liberal feud is far more entertaining to Internets denizens than anything resembling empathy . . . KCPD hasn't named suspects yet but that hasn't stopped local law firms, social media denizens and just about everybody else from making some rather obvious connections. TKC's top suspect is now a "zombie vigilante" just to keep things fun for Halloween and because this horrific murder once again reveals deep racial, economic and partisan division in Kansas City that so many locals like to pretend don't exist.
You decide . . .
