The fallout from the deadly police shooting of a teen in Overland Park persists more than two years following the tragic incident.
Accordingly . . .
Political push back is spreading across the metro and just moments ago a leading activist organization released their demands for the removal of Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez.
Before dismissing the activists, let's not forget that More2 successfully took down the top cop in KCK.
Here's their online petition . . .

"Following the tragic 2018 killing of John Albers by Officer Clayton Jenison, Chief Donchez misled the public, implying that Officer Jenison resigned while keeping hidden a $70,000 severance agreement. In his formal report, Donchez wrote that Jenison left “Under Ordinary Circumstances.” We cannot accept the killing of John Albers as “ordinary circumstances.”
"In July 2020, as the nation's attention was fixed and conscience reawakened to the racial injustices illuminated by the killing of George Floyd, Overland Park witnessed peaceful demonstrations of support for racial justice, like many communities across the country. Yet, when threats from white nationalists emerged, Donchez chose to crack down on protestors rather than stand up to extremists. We cannot accept bending to the demands of white nationalists."
"Just this month, two officers filed a lawsuit claiming Chief Donchez discriminated and denied promotions on the basis of age, gender, and race. While such allegations will inevitably be dealt with in the courts, they embody a pattern of behavior lacking transparency, accountability, and discipline, which is vital to our community trust and safety. We cannot accept the shadow of multiple scandals hanging over Overland Park Police in a time that calls for bold moral leadership."
"For these reasons, we demand action to remove Chief Donchez."
