SWINGERS CLUB WEEKEND ENDS WITH A BANG!!! AND THEN LAW ENFORCEMENT SMILES SPARK SOCIAL MEDIA OUTRAGE!!!
The climax of the Kansas City weekend was the report of an EPIC GUN FIGHT and quintuple shooting near an unincorporated Jackson County spot dedicated to the "lifestyle" of sexual sharing, swapping and somewhat scandalous good times.
However, in the aftermath, a notable social media ruckus erupted after Sheriff Forté shared a few public post photos of deputies grinning near the scene of the crime. To be fair, the Sheriff didn't seem to be joking and noted the professionalism and dedicatation of his staff in the narrative of the pix.
As always, local Internets denizens were offended and expressed their displeasure at lack of decorum from the County top cop . . .
The reply for the JaxCo Sheriff:
"I appreciate and admire what law enforcement has to endure day after day. Often times being judged and criticized by some who have no idea of the stress associated with being on heightened alert both while on-duty and off-duty. No one was seriously injured or killed during this incident. Had someone been killed or seriously injured, out of respect we wouldn’t smile for pictures.
"I’m not concerned with comments from critics. Everyone pictured and others in the LE community would sacrifice their life to save a life. They have earned the right to smile. I will continue to show my appreciation for their commitment to our community. LE officials deserve to be commended. I encourage those who haven’t participated in a ride-a-long in your jurisdiction to do so.
"If you don’t like happy deputies don’t look at the pictures."
Was is appropriate to feature smiling deputies after a sex club shooting???
You decide . . .
