IN DEFENSE OF KCPD HORSE PLAY!!!
Social justice activists decry alleged animal cruelty whilst protesters claim that police horses are part on an intimidation strategy.
Right now, let's look at an alternative community news perspective noting the benefits of this program that's at risk of getting cut:
Northeast News: "The Mounted Patrol represents community policing at its core by building relationships with community members of all ages through the simple act of riding a horse. With the very real war on police in full swing, what better resource to have at the department’s disposal than a unit like the Mounted Patrol that breaks down all manner of barriers, racial, socio-economic, et al, just by the very virtue of the fact that an officer is riding a large four legged mammal, – not a common sight in the city’s urban core to be sure."
