Friday evening MSM fodder for social media and newscasts deserves some consideration as we move forward . . .
"A Jackson County grand jury has indicted a Kansas City police officer who sprayed a juvenile protester in the face on May 30, 2020, during daytime protests at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
"The officer faces a single misdemeanor count of Assault 4th Degree.
"According to court records released today, McQuillen, a Kansas City police officer, recklessly caused physical injury to the juvenile when he sprayed chemicals into her face during the protest in the Country Club Plaza on May 30, 2020."
Push back from the police union . . .
"The FOP is very disappointed that the Prosecuting Attorney would bring such a charge when THE OFFICER employed the lowest level of force available to him. The use of OC spray is an extraordinarily valuable tool that often results in the de-escalation of a given situation. And, the individual here had no injuries or lasting effects from the use of the OC spray.
"We believe this charge has no merit and the FOP will fully support THE OFFICER as he challenges it in Court."
