Former KCPD Attorney Open Letter Claims HQ Corruption: 'Reputation In Tatters"

Today's well planned news blast from yet another former KC employee . . .

Here's the word . . .

The former KCPD attorney said the department has a favorable history, but he argued corruption, cronyism and cover-ups "have hollowed the soul of this once-great institution."

McCarty said the agency's reputation is now in tatters. In the letter, he said he doesn't know the origin of the decline but has witnessed the "ongoing erosion of conviction, integrity, faith in leadership (and) morale."

McCarty said he's not referring to the detention and patrol officers and detectives who put their lives on the line. He's talking about those at Kansas City police headquarters who "lord over the rest."

Specifically, McCarty said he's speaking about Mabin and General Counsel Holly Dodge.
