KCFD CONFRONTS ANGER MANAGEMENT QUESTIONS AFTER WOMAN ALLEGES BRUTAL ROAD RAGE BEAT DOWN!!!
The deets in a recent traffic dispute are scary and speak to a growing level of cruelty on local streets . . .
The victim said she was just heading to work Tuesday morning and was crossing through that intersection, attempting to turn right, when she said a driver next to her, pulled ahead and blocked her in.
"She almost hit my car, going around me and honking," the victim, who did not want to be identified, told FOX4.
The victim recognized the driver who cut her off as a young woman who lives in her neighborhood.
"I got out of my car and said, 'What are you doing? What's going on? Why are you doing this?'" the victim said.
After a heated verbal exchange, she said the teen's dad showed up.
"He punched me and then he threw me to the ground. So I ended up on my stomach, laying on my stomach on the ground. He sat on my back and just started punching me, just kept on punching me," the victim said.
Witnesses told police the man slammed her head into the concrete.
"Everybody saw this and was getting out of their car trying to plead with him to stop. He wouldn't," she said.
She said the man finally backed off when police arrived and arrested him. But she was left with cuts all over her upper body, a swollen face, a bloodshot eye, and her arm needing bandages and a sling.
Here's more reporting on the incident and connection to an embattled city department . . .
LSTrib: Several witnesses reported that a man was beating a woman. Officers arrived and found that the man had assaulted a woman after a road rage incident
KSHB: Police said the suspect remained on the scene and was arrested.
Fox4: A witness works for the Kansas City Fire Department and said his neighbor behind all the issues works there, too, as a firefighter.
Accordingly . . .
THIS IS THE SECOND MAJOR BEAT DOWN ALLEGATION CONFRONTING KCFD SO FAR THIS SUMMER!!! FISTICUFFS ALLEGATIONS ARE ALSO CONNECTED TO THE RECENT KCFD LEADERSHIP SWITCHEROO!!!
Again, don't mistake this for hateration. We know a great many patient, kind and caring people work every day for KCFD but there's no denying this 2019 trend in the aftermath of a former firefighter busted for selling guns.
The fact is, unchecked violence withing the ranks of the KCFD has been identified as a problem by whistle-blowers (ew) & gossips alike . . .
Now, amid a Summer when the homicide count is skyrocketing at a record pace. KCMO seems powerless to control violence on local streets when 12th & Oak can't curtail fighting in one of their biggest departments.
You decide . . .
