KCK Police Put Officer On Leave After Viral Troll & Disclose 'Medical Condition' To Media

We talked about this a bit in the morning . . . 

Admittedly, because TKC is a denizen of the urban core, we have a high tolerance for a variety of different behaviors.

Accordingly, here's the statement from the department and a reminder that social media pressure is very real:

"The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department understands concerns currently being raised regarding the appearance and wellbeing of one of the officers in the video," the department said in the statement.

The department said the investigation includes a "fit-for-duty evaluation," which will consist of a comprehensive medical and physical assessment.
