KANSAS CITY CHIEFS BOOZING IN PUBLIC DURING SUPER BOWL PARADE VIOLATED LAW & EARNED REBUKE FROM PARENTS!!!
During the long-ago era of prohibition Kansas City earned international notoriety for its corrupt defiance of prudish American law that was eventually repealed. During the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade, superstar athletes also defied more reasonable restrictions on drinking in public.
Let's not forget that before the parade Kansas City's top cop warned the public about drinking outside of designated areas like bars, restaurants and residences.
KCPD Chief: "As always, public alcohol consumption also is prohibited."
However . . .
THOUSANDS OF CAMERAS DOCUMENTED THE CHIEFS BOOZING IT UP ON THE STREETS DURING THE PARADE AND OPENLY DEFYING KANSAS CITY LAWS EVERYBODY ELSE MUST OBEY!!!
Sports media confirmation . . .

And thankfully, at least one local station documents beer chugging that breaks the law:

Chiefs fans are trying to spin criticism and claim the booze is fake . . . Witnesses at the scene, social media clips and the smells from the crowd confirm THOSE BEERS WERE THE REAL THING.
More to the point the rambling from the Chiefs during their speeches was nothing more than nearly incoherent impromptu chatter and yelling that usually emanates from the the cheap seats among functional alcoholics who utilize local games as nothing more than an excuse to drink.
Here's word sent our way from one fan and a growing sentiment starting to trend . . .
"I understand this victory was historic and these guys are entitled to a good time but what kind of message does it send to have them chugging beers for three hours on our downtown streets?
Slurring through thanks to Veterans isn't really a proper tribute. It was impossible to listen to them because most players were drunk on stage. There were tens of thousands of young people watching and what they witnessed didn't have any more dignity than a late night college kegger.
Again, I know the Chiefs are young athletes who can do whatever they please during their own time but this was a parade and rally funded by taxpayer dollars, and attended by elected officials. It didn't have to be a beer fest but that's how it turned out. More than anything, this was NOT a family friendly event."
Police escorted the Chiefs boozing so it's unlikely any fines or admonishment will result.
We understand concerns from parents but that's just one of many complaints starting to emerge . . .
As voters discuss the uncomfortable topic of corruption amid a debate over local control of police, this historic episode clearly demonstrates millionaire celebrity athletes acting above the law in full view of hundreds of thousands on Kansas City streets.
