Re: “Cop Donald Hubbard said he had no choice when he shot and killed firefighter Anthony Bruno last fall. That's because he'd already made some bad decisions

So, let me get this straight: The newlywed Brunos wanted to get the cab driver to take their cousin home, as well as them. The cab driver refused and the couple, presumably drunk, started to exchange words, which lead the cab driver to call the wife the c-word.

Why couldn't they just drop it? So what, the third wheel would have had to get a ride elsewhere. Instead, a seemingly belligerent husband unnecessarily escalated the situation by assaulting the driver and then he leaves the scene by hiding into an alley? Um, that's your husband, lady. Why didn't you try and find him? I am assuming she was aware of his violent tendencies if she couldn't approach him.

Both parties are at fault. A hostile fireman and an off-duty officer who shouldn't have been involved in the first place. Case closed.

I just wanted to address the poor way the KCPD handled this situation. One of your boys is obviously wrong and made a huge mistake. Instead of owning up to it and handling it right, they went on to hide, lie, and not cooperate.
C'mon now, this lady lost her husband wrongfully. Own up to it Blue.

Re: “Cop Donald Hubbard said he had no choice when he shot and killed firefighter Anthony Bruno last fall. That's because he'd already made some bad decisions

RTFLDGR-
where is the rest of your list of Hubbard's (lethal) mistakes?? all of which are against KCPD policy? no radio, leaving the property while off-duty, not calling for back-up, not asking bystanders to call for help, & most egregiously shooting to kill when a stun-gun or leg shot would've sufficed.
i read the entire article, did you?

So since Disney owns Marvel doesn't this make THOR the latest Disney Princess?

Re: “Streetcar loses on Tuesday, and other election news

Sorry the reality of the economic development impact of streetcars is minimal and that's from very little movement of business. The real reason for development is due to tax breaks and other $$ incentives. And pleeze a total of 7.6 miles of streetcar fixed rail is not TRANSIT. Proponents have rightly failed at selling this scam. And at a price tag of $$HALF A BILLION that's an expensive ride. I'm all for reducing cars on the road so I'll look for you on the KCATA soon. At least it's affordable transportation to places they need to go and not just up and down Main St. Bring on the compressed natural gas buses. We could buy 105 of them for the same $$.

Re: “Streetcar loses on Tuesday, and other election news

I understand the objections to the tax district putting the burden of funding the expansion of public transportation on some of our poorest neighborhoods - but how short-sighted do you have to be to celebrate car culture and oppose the expansion of public transportation in KCMO? It is one of the major things holding our city back from becoming a truly modern, competitive city.
Economic development will follow the investment in updating our transportation infrastructure. Do you really think a future with a car for everyone is going to happen? Short-sighted, privileged nonsense.

You beat a cops head in the ground after assaulting another man (even if he forgot his radio) you can and most likely will be shot. Even a 5 year old knows that. Redtape or not.

The first one to f'ck up gets the majority of the blame because the first f'ck up gets it all rolling.

Obnoxious drunk + lying cop = one hell of a mess.

Re: “Chuy's: Will it become the new Annie's Santa Fe?

From my many trips to Austin: Chuy's is a great restaurant. They don't smother everything in tons of cheese & actually know how to make a great enchilada. Their hatch green chili sauce is to die for. I like my Tex-Mex HOT.

Usually -with crowds like you find standing outside Chuy's in Austin- something gets lost. Either food quality, service -some part of the dining experience will suffer. But not at Chuy's in Austin. What I like about their Tex-Mex is it's tasty fare at a great price & their bartenders know how to make a great margarita.

Fast-forward to now, after Chuy's has been open on the Plaza for what, a year? I go there regularly, with friends or solo. STILL order my favorite dish, The Southwestern. It's an open-faced (two layers?) enchilada w/fried egg on top, with freshly stewed white meat chicken. They use their handmade blue corn tortillas -substantive & delish. You can order Chuy's delicious refried beans, or outstanding charro beans (like a bean soup with lots of cilantro & quite spicy). Comes with rice, too.

This dish is substantive, filling & SPICY. Since I'm a gluten-free eater out of necessity, it's inoffensive to my system & satisfies my spicy-HOT food cravings. I've tried other dishes on their menu, but what originally drew me to Chuy's & will keep me coming back? Their enchiladas, various sauces & delicious charro beans.

If you like spicy-hot, don't be afraid to ask your server for a sample plate of ALL their sauces. Trust me on this.

A few notes on their servers: Hayley is AWESOME, as are most of their servers. If I have a complaint, it's how Chuy's has their bar set-up. They need to devote ONE bartender & bar space to making drinks for table service. Too many times I've had drinks come to my table that are watered down because they sat too long at the bar. I've watched servers get to the bar & wait to be acknowledged, while the bartenders make chit-chat. This is NOT how you run an efficient bar & especially when tequila costs so much these days (what's up with that?)! Restaurants make a ton of $$$ off bar service. Get it together already. In a restaurant that seems busy all the time, this is inexcusable. If you don't know what you're doing there, you have no business being there.

Some servers just don't get it. They're chatty with their co-workers, they forget to be attentive to their customers. I get it -waiting tables is not an easy job, so I tip well. The service has to be absolutely atrocious for me to tip less than 20%.

We actually had one server argue with my companion about her coffee with Bailey's Irish Cream being cold. On a VERY cold night. "Well, the Bailey's is cold, that's why the coffee is cold...." he said, like a caveman. Duh. We're paying for HOT coffee. Heat it up before serving it. Sheesh.

On other occasions, the servers were inattentive to minor details. One of my companions remarked she would never go to Chuy's again because of it. This is disturbing to me & shouldn't happen. Not on the Plaza, not at Chuy's. The Manager should be watching these things, not chit-chatting with other servers & checking text messages.

I have given them multiple reviews indicating these problem-areas. I can only assume that their FOH manager doesn't have the cajones to run the ship the right way. Chuy's will suffer if they don't get it together & by that I mean, their service will drop off to where they are unable to meet their overhead. Which will ultimately cause them to close. It would be a pity if this happens.

To other (Mexican or Tex-Mex) restaurateurs out there in the KC area who are reading this ->take note. What Chuy's does best is they don't try to hide their poor-quality food under a mound of cheese & they're not afraid of HOT & SPICY.

I hope they win this wrongful death lawsuit and Hubbard loses his job. Both men are at fault here but a sober Hubbard could've handled the situation much better and not used excessive force.

Re: “Streetcar loses on Tuesday, and other election news

Great reporting on this issue all along the way, Steve! TAX DISCRIMINATION DISTRICT vote goes DOWN IN FLAMES!!! Attention Mayor, City Council and Streetcar Mafia Boss Councilman Russ Johnson: STOP TRYING TO SCREW TAX PAYERS over for NO benefit while passing out $$MILLIONS in contracts, tax breaks & incentives to bff's like Burns & Mc, BNIM, condo developers, lawyers, etc. not to mention siphoning a $$MILLION+ from community improvement / PIAC funds.
