TOW TRUCK THREAT AUDIO CONFRONTS CONTROVERSIAL KANSAS CITY POLICE UNION HONCHO BRAD LEMON!!!

The career ambitions and reputation of a KCPD police union honcho are under attack and in question. 

A quick summary quote . . . 

"Jackson County prosecutors on Tuesday released an audio recording that allegedly captures the president of the Kansas City police union threatening the owner of a tow company if he did not release a car belonging to the union official’s relatives."

Accordingly . . .

CREDIBILITY OF THE POLICE UNION AND KCPD ARE NOW IN QUESTION AFTER TOW TRUCK BEEF ALLEGATIONS!!!

First news headlines . . . 

KMBC: Jackson County prosecutor drops 31 charges against tow lot operator after phone message from FOP president discovered

More deets . . .

"The tow truck driver turned over an audio recording involving Sgt. Lemon in which a man identifying himself as Lemon can be heard asking the person on the line at Private Party Impound LLC. to release a vehicle that had been towed from the Two Light apartment complex downtown."

The prosecutor's office said the tow truck driver, who answered the call, explained to Lemon that he could only legally release the towed vehicle to the vehicle's registered owner, or to someone legally designated by the owner.

When the tow truck driver said he wouldn't release the car without the proof legally required, Lemon stated his position with the Kansas City Police Department, and as president of the police union, and mentioned a previous investigation.

In the recorded call, which was also released by the prosecutor's office, Lemon can be heard saying, "It's game on ... we'll start the same routine with you then."

KCTV5: Charges against tow truck driver dropped after audio emerges of KCFOP president; department will investigate

And so . . .

DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY LUXURY TWO LIGHT TOWING BEEF ALLEGEDLY BESMIRCHES POLICE INTEGRITY!!!

Thankfully, luxury living space car trouble and sketchy "advocacy" are a problem that broke-ass TKC readers don't have to confront. 

KCPD Statement: 

"Today we were made aware of charges being dropped in the case of Allen Bloodworth. This has been attributed in part to an interaction with one of our employees. This matter will be investigated in compliance with our current policies and procedures. To be clear, today was the first time we were made aware of our member being involved in the decision to drop charges. This will be investigated."

As of this writing, the otherwise outspoken KC FOP Lodge social media presence has been silent amid a debate that questions "police privilege" over car problems that everybody else has to confront without backup.

wow a dispute, asshole police union boss vs asshole tow lot guy ....

haven't seen one this good since that fistfight between the asshole KCFD fireman and the asshole KCPD cop brouhaha a couple years back.

If Jean Peters Baker cared about criminals as much as the two cops she hates (Lemon and Smith), KC would have a lower crime rate than Lone Jack. Seriously, the Star just needs to give her a column since she has a new police issue every week and as yet, nothing ever comes of it. What a failure she is.

I'm so old I can remember when the Prosecutor's Office wasn't at war against the Police department.
Used to be that they actually cooperated to put criminals behind bars.

What a Moron... Time to retire Brad! Next President for the so called KCPD Police Union please stand up..... Crickets, Crickets, Crickets, Residency, Crickets, Crickets, Crickets............

does the union boss have to be a resident, 4:55? i guess i didn't know that, thought just a requirement for city employees ... and is that a city employeee ? not a challenge just wonderin

This would have been a better cover story for the Star than the "cry me a river/bend me over and paddle my pale white ass" puke they used instead this week.

Oh, Brad Lemon. You poor, stupid piece of shit. Nobody is going to have your spineless back on this one. You’re fired, dumb fuck.

He is a resident of KCMO. Where does it say otherwise???

Fuck that MF'er Lemon... and people wonder where the bad reputation for power issues and self dealing come from. If the PD is serious about wanting to change the narative and regain the respect of the public on behalf of the overwhelming majority of good officers, they will begin the termination process quickly. No job, no pension, no more ability to threaten "justice" for his own benefit.

The moral of the story is don't be a Trumper and don't piss off people in power who stay in power. His Trumpism and hatred for the Democrats got a bullseye on his back and rightfully so coming out politically calling out the Prosecutor and BLM. As one old saying goes, if you dig one grave you better dig two.

Busted! Lemon abusing his authority... what else is new in Kansas City. Troy Schulte, Forte, Slick James, Melba Curls, Jermaine Reed, Quinton Lucas... what was the bimbo’s name that used to be on the council? Hairdresser? All abused their authority. City Plan Commission. BZA, PIAC... you name it, folks feel way more important than they really are... AND they believe that they’ll never be called to atone for their bad behavior. I say put him in the electric chair and let him burn.

The tow truck dude is a notorious POS. "Allegedly". Everytime he slips put of charges. Can anyone do their job over there?

Anonymous said...

Wow! Look at the facts. Someone towed his grandmothers car. Then a phone call was conveniently recorded of him trying to get it out of tow. This just doesn't happen randomly peeps. Then the prosecution get's notified and drops all charges against the tow driver?

Smells like a set up from the prosecutors office who is failing to do her job. Connect the dot's people. JPB hate's LE the FOP and Chief because they don't fold to her directive. It's that simple.

Ya cause allissa Canady never did anything about vehicles being towed and she was never associated with the prosecutors office.

Nobody forced him to try and abuse his authority. If he did that, he screwed over himself, his union and KCPD.

@ 9:35 He didn't the prosecutors office did. Plain and simple. Why more can't see that is crazy. Figures what you read and believe.

This is garbage! This piece of shit tow truck driver is a criminal praying on people in the city. Jean Peters Baker and the liberal rag KC Star are just trying to pursue an agenda. They would let the police department fall and the city burn if they could. Brad Lemon has spent a lifetime trying to do the right thing for the PD and the public and this doesn't change that. Some times when you deal with scumbags, like the tow truck driver, you have to speak to them in terms they understand. Brad did nothing wrong here.

Anonymous said...

Jean Peters Baker is corrupt! She's a politician that only cares about getting elected. The police know she's corrupt, that's why they leave her out of the loop until the very last minute. She's also in bed with the KC Star (who else would get in bed with her!), so when they're not apologizing for things the current staff had nothing to do with, what better liberal pinhead to get behind.

I Love KC said...

Really scary here to watch police play judge & jury in this case. I don't like tow truck drivers either but that doesn't give police the right to abuse their authority if that's what happened here. I'm glad KCPD is investigating this matter. I hope they make the findings available to the public.

KC doesn't work for the police, it's supposed to be the other way around.

Judging from these comments, the defense of Brad Lemon is based on character assassination and an appeal to authority.

This story is bad news for all of KC. It's hard to defend against local control when the other side can use this as a persuasive argument against the current system.

KCPD must do better.

JP Baker is an evil anti-police witch.

She needs to resign because she's incapable of performing her job duties correctly.

She should transition into being a "community activist Karen" who marches for animal rights, BLM, LGBT, drug abusers, and the incarcerated.

Jean peters Baker has her own opinions about different situations but when you run for the county executive of Jackson County, Missouri.

Each candidate was required to submit their information from the Missouri Department of revenue to the Missouri ethics commission and once the Missouri ethics commission has reviewed any documentation from the Missouri Department of revenue. Each candidate will be added on to the ballot that supports drug-free workplace protection act.

Senate Bill 43 of the state of Missouri was just informing each individual to take interest in of their own employment. Also don’t worry about other peoples employment.

But once the Missouri ethics commission has reviewed any previous candidates financial statements from the Missouri Department of revenue and each candidate that decides to run for office of the county executive in Jackson County, Missouri will be added to the ballot for the voters.

But as long as there are signs that viewable from the public street/public sidewalk before someone enters into a private area/restricted area that’s indicating that of no trespassing and unauthorized vehicles will be towed at the owners expense.

Providing phone numbers on the public sign for people to call to get their vehicle out of the tow lot. Was also doable but the signs posted that’s viewable from the public street/public sidewalk that says no trespassing on private property and any unauthorized vehicles will be towed at the owners expense was perfectly legal to display to inform folks not to be parking in this parking lot.

But as long there was signs posted that’s viewable from the public street/public sidewalk to alert any individuals that there was no trespassing and no unauthorized vehicles/piggyback.

That it’s legal for the city of Kansas City, Missouri to tow any vehicles that there was already signs posted indicating to the Citizen that there was no trespassing, no foot traffic of any type, no unauthorized vehicles on private property.

It’s legal as there is signs posted to inform each individual of no piggyback and no piggyback was allowed due to a restricted area.

They can’t read signs and they can’t read anything that’s been previously posted that’s viewable on a public street/public sidewalk of a sign that says no trespassing/no piggybacking/no foot traffic of any type/no unauthorized vehicles.

Then it’s legal for the private owner to file a complaint with the city to inform that there was an unauthorize traffic.

a Missouri Department of Revenue Form 4669 must be completed and signed by the owner or manager requesting the tow.

Most owners/property managers require a parking permit in order to park in the parking lot and without that parking permit that they may have individuals to be towed at the owners expense.

But as long there was signs posted on the property of where they were illegally towed no trespassing, no piggybacking, no unauthorized parties/no unauthorized individuals/no foot traffic of any type that was posted on the property with a sign that indicates of no trespassing.

But most property owners/property managers require a parking permit in order to park on the parking lot.

A Missouri Department of revenue form number 4689 was just a part of the drivers privacy protection act that was signed into US federal law by former President Bill Clinton indicating that each individual was required to obtain a access code from the Department of revenue and was required by law to obtain a access code from the Department of revenue.

The Driver Privacy Protection Act restricts the release of personal information (name, address, date of birth, etc.) from motor vehicle and driver licensing records. Members of the press may be authorized to receive this information if they have a Security Access Code from the Department of Revenue. The drivers privacy protection act was signed into US federal law by former President Bill Clinton.

Individuals will need an access code from the Missouri Department of revenue in order to obtain any type of vicious.

Also the county executive of Jackson County, Missouri of any candidates that run for office within Jackson County, Missouri of anything within Jackson County, Missouri Jurisdiction.

The county executive also processes any documentations from the Missouri Department of corrections to the Missouri ethics commission for a review of any type of previous information from the Department of revenue.

The Missouri ethics commission also reviews each Financial history from the Missouri Department of revenue.

Each candidate was required to turn in forms from the Missouri Department of revenue to the Missouri SS commission.

The drivers privacy protection act does allow for state investigations.

Also for other authorized activities authorized by state law. But as long as the vehicle owner has received noticed that their vehicle was illegal and it’s legal for a tow service to Tow them.

But the vehicle owner must be informed that the vehicle was being towed and give them a chance to move their vehicle.

But as long as the owner of that vehicle has been notified that their vehicle was being towed and as long as they have been notified that they have been informed that their vehicle was being removed from the property.

As long as there are signs posted in the driveway and around the property indicating to any driver that this was private property and no piggybacking, no foot traffic, no trespassing, no unauthorized vehicles was allowed to be on this property of signs being posted and phone numbers to call for any type of questions that’s related to the issues of any type of problems.

But as long as they have been notified that their vehicle was being towed at the owners expense then it’s legal for the drivers privacy protection act that was signed into US federal law by former President Bill Clinton.

But as long as the owner has been previously notified of the vehicle being removed from the property.

But they must first get in contact with the owner to notify the owner that their vehicle was being towed and they must be able to notify them of any type of issues.

But even with the Missouri Department of revenue can also be overstepping their boundaries without first notifying the driver of the vehicle that their vehicle was being removed.

Anonymous 4787 said...

But because the owner was not notified by the truck driving company and it’s legal for the local police department to do a investigation on this type of issue.

Because the tow truck company never notified the owner of the issue and is perfectly legal for the local police department to do a investigation regarding this type of issue. But also each individual was required to notify the driver that their vehicle was being towed and to notify them to give them a chance to move their vehicle that was supported with the drivers privacy protection act that was the United States federal law by former President Bill Clinton.
