Overland Park Push Back Against Police Persists After Teen Shooting Last Year

The tragic case for those who don't remember:

Unarmed Teen Killed by Police Was ‘Simply Backing His Mom’s Minivan’ Out of Garage, Lawsuit Claims

Here's the ongoing fallout from that tragic episode . . .

Overland Park community pushes for change in the police department

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -- Mental health was just one part of the focus Wednesday at a public safety meeting. They also want more mental health training for officers, but they also brought up transparency, which got a bit touchy. John Albers was a high school junior who was shot to death by police in January 2018.

Damn cop should have just let the druggie run over him, right?
It's a hell of a lot more comforting to blame the PD than to admit to poor parenting.

^Shut the fuck up man. This has been re-hashed over and over previously on TKC. It's obvious you don't know shit about these people.

It's a tragedy that this happened. But as always it turns into blame the police for everything. So if the officer didn't shoot, and this kid got away and drove head on into a car load of kids, then it's "why didn't the damn cops shoot him to stop him from doing this"?

Police Officers;
Damned if they do and damned if they don't.
These parents seem to have a real issue in accepting the fact their Golden Ghetto Perfect Child wasn't so perfect.

It was a very questionable shoot, he wasn’t close to running anybody over, they were ten feet away and out of harms way when he came out of the garage, all the ignorant bastards had to do was pull a cop car in front of the door and he couldn’t have gone anywhere, I’m 50/50 on the whole thing anyway.

This kid had several run-ins with law enforcement and they were fully aware how dangerous this kid was. The apple doesn't fall to far from the tree, I've have several friends that they're kids went to Harmony Middle School where this kids mom is the assistant principal and they all have said that she's nothing but a bitch.

What would we all be saying if the cop had allowed the little privileged nut ball to accelerate on down the block and run over a lady walking her dog ?

Reading this story reminds me of the jack booted shaved bald thug cops in Lee’s Summit all dressed in nazi ss black. You know these thugs who have been reduced to ‘revenue raisers ‘ are just chomping at the bit to blow some dumbass kid away all in the interest of “ public safety” . I’m sure it’s got to make one of the rotten prick cops feel as though he’s on his way to the top as opposed to merely hassling a soccer mom for doing a rolling stop which is a crowd favorite in Lee’s Summit. Unfortunately I see many parallels in the pricks in Lee’s Summit and OP. They all signed on to be Konan and instead they’re writing harassment tickets for broken taillights. As far as I’m concerned they should try this fucking moron for murder to make an example for all the other rogues if you think you can blow away some stupid as a first resort your going down , fucking assholes
