Explained: Kansas City Police 'Ghetto Bird' Hovers Over Johnson County

We're living in a brave new world wherein white people are concerned about the flight patterns of local police helicopters.

Internets tech allows plebs to track flight patterns and "public" radio is offering a bit of a flex against law enforcement by feigning citizen media tracking power. 

The explanation isn't as fun as "black helicopters" fantasies from people who smoke way too much weed.

However, here's the obvious answer . . . 

Officer Donna Drake with the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department confirmed with the Shawnee Mission Post via email that KCPD helicopters have been in use over the Johnson County area.

She said that KCPD does not have “additional details about their investigation” involving these recent helicopter flights, and she did not indicate which agencies needed the helicopters’ assistance.
