Kansas City, Kansas Fire Department Investigates Allegations Of Harassment Against Ousted Mayor Holland



Friday follow-up to a story of civic conflict wherein supporters of former Mayor Holland argued against alleged bullying using taxpayer resources and firefighter proponents claimed the charge was nothing more than sour grapes in the aftermath of an election defeat.

TKC readers who denied the incident should check this confirmation from the KCKFD as SOME 1st responders now face discipline for being "bad winners" of an political contest.

Update and statement reported from the KCKFD:

"The Kansas City Kansas Fire Department has conducted an internal investigation of alleged events in former Mayor Mark Holland’s neighborhood. Investigations included speaking with neighbors; face to face and by phone. This neighborhood canvass was done by Interim Fire Chief Kevin R. Shirley and the Department’s Fire Marshal. One neighbor did confirm that they heard a sound that they thought could have been a siren that morning.

"Facts regarding this investigation concluded that the Fire Department did respond to a medical call in a nearby neighborhood that morning. It was confirmed that on the return trip to the station that a siren was set off for a period of 1 to 3 seconds in the area near former Mayor Holland’s house.

"Those firefighters that were involved will be dealt with as necessary to ensure that activation of sirens and lights will only be done in compliance with current policies."

You decide . . .

They need to clean house of all the inbred dishonest thieves in the fire department, which amounts to 90% of them. Since KCK is so corrupt and the chickenshit new mayor is in over his head, it won’t happen.

For KCMO at least, intimidation has been a pretty effective tactic in achieving goals the last 40 years.

The thing is, KCK is such a shithole, if it burned to the ground, it would be an improvement.

These firefighters were forced to remove any firefighter decals from their trucks for a period of 3 years as punishment.

The news was so devastating to the men involved that one has already attempted suicide.

WTF, did POUTY Preacher consider for the possibilites of there being legitimate reasons for a quick press of the siren? There are still densely forested areas surrounding Piper and the Dotte County Lake. Deer are seen roaming all over KCK hoods from the woods out here. They're thicker than Rev. Paranoid's big head. Bambis, Does and Bucks galore run in the yards and into the dimly lit suburban roads in a flash. We're seeing loose dogs, at times, chasing wildlife. We've got early morning radio blasters and sleepy heads backing out of driveways quickly, and morning rushers who hog the street center. Plus, golly...gee...willikers, there just may have been one of those roadrunners in the rig's way! Not the bird, just a bird-brained jogger with those distracting ear-buds in!

So, to conclude the special investigation into the alleged high crimes and misdemeanors levelled at the fire peeps by the former mayor creep, the impetus for a short warning sound from the siren was for one, or more of the following:
1. Deer
2. Dog
3. Doofus

"Those firefighters that were involved will be dealt with as necessary to ensure that activation of sirens and lights will only be done in compliance with current policies." ( Policies??? How about STATE LAW!!!! )

YA RIGHT!!! IAFF affilated Fire services have no accountabilty, no sense of responsibilty, and truley think the public they serve is a joke. If thats not true, the capatin on that truck never would have allowed such a irresponsible, immature action!! State law requires that lights and sirens on a emergency vehicle are only to be used in a true emergency not for revenge against a mayor that called out their corruption to the public eye - It seems KCKFD thinks state law is a joke and that they are above the law!

Their actions were immature and far from professional!!! The crew on that truck is not fit to serve the public and should be made an example out of to keep the integrity of the fire service intact and they should be fired!

And once again, the fire dept looks like a bunch of goons. Great public image. Someone please thank them for their service before any more feelings get hurt or the fire stations might run out of Kleenex and flushable wipes dealing with all the years and butthurt.

7:56, Firefighters bang a ton a married mens wives which is why most of the public thinks firefighters have NO moral turptitude and are unfit to be rolemodels in this city, and for sure not the heros they think they are. Fire fighters are poon hounds who think with their dick who also think that because they are FF they woman just think they are all that. Funny thing though almost every FF I know (and I know more than a few) have had at least one divorce and some even 3, see woman buy into their sales pitch but soon realize they are just another douchbag with a goofy hat and a water hose that they wish the pin dick they have was as big as. (and no you FF fucks didnt fuck my wife she thinks you bafoons are all monkeys with a ego, her brother is a NYFD FF and she knows all about the truth with you losers, she says you will never be a hero until you save yourself from the rediculious fantasy land that you all live in)
