Officer shot in KC.
#1
Had protests here happening today.  Small.  But there.  Now a cop shot.

Hoping this isn't a trend.  KC isn't Saint Louis.  Kc, KS has very compartmentalized minority communities.  The location there is largely African American.  There is a historic area (Argentine) that is mostly Hispanic.  Ok ed there.  Never had issues then.  Times have changed.  News is saying 2-3 have been caught.    Cop is dead.  They just announced it.  Shit.  Getting g tired of this.  Has nothing to do with protests with watching the statement being made.  A drive by that was called in, then it turned into a police chance then asshats shooting the cop.

I was ready to make connections.  Because that seems to be the MO.  That sucks.  Assumption with conditioning because of these fuckers who do this stuff.  Easy leap to make.  BLM is in KC with protests today.  I feel Racist now.  Tired of that too.  That wasn't a feeling I had 10 years ago when made a family with my Latina.  Or 3 years ago when my black son in law married my daughter.
Legit rant.  This shit is being used by some to divide.  On purpose.  Obvious is obvious.  I found myself assuming the worst there.  Because of how it has gone down over the past few weeks.

Gang violence has escalated over the past two or three years here in KC.  Big time.  Kc proper only has 300,000 or so folks.  The suburbs are seeing it now with that.  The kC AREA on both sides of the state line are....pissed.  Community policing...Officer friendly kind of thing was a big push this time last year.  Well, after Ferguson at least.  Not Changing anything.  Because gang shit doesn't care about that.  I have to rant as I have made it known that I have cop and ex cop buddies.  This shit resonates with me. Tired of it.  Why some neighbors in my hood have worked with police and a church to community watch.  Not patrol.  Watch.  And it has ben beneficial. Could go on.  Stopping now.  This irks me every damn time I read or hear about it.  Above average number of police being shot up lately.  Even in my city.

Kansas police officer shot and killed responding to shooting report

Quote:A Kansas City, Kan. police officer was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon while responding to a reported drive-by shooting. Authorities arrested two suspects and were searching for a third.

Officials confirmed that Capt. Robert David Melton was pronounced dead at University of Kansas Hospital at 2:55 p.m. local time.

"There's a lot of pain and brokenness in our community and our nation right now, and we just want to ask everyone to be prayerful and thoughtful right now," Mayor Mark Holland of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County said

Buddy of mine who is KCK (was County deputy)  officer knew him.  His wife hollered.  Said buddy cannot say anything yet.  Was glad to know he is ok.  They alluded to protests but said "don't jump to conclusions"   Second KCK cop killed in two months with that.  Just a criminal/gang shit happening.  Kc  volunteered to de-militarize much of what they had.  Not to get what was offered.  Swat got some stuff.  Not cops.  If that makes sense.  This is why police shoot first and ask later so often.  Lose lose situation.  Where are the goddamn protesters with this one?   No more comments.  Still pissed.
