Re: “Searching for answers in former Mission Police Chief John Simmons’ departure

Sounds like they appreciated the revenue he generated, but not his "management style".
He did well, they did well, the arrestee did well. All's well that ends well, as long as it ends. And now everybody's happy!

They charge food vendors a lot of money too, I've heard.

Re: “Anthony Bruno's family records Kansas City police officers tearing down memorial ribbons (video)

It's a pick 'em! Place your bets. One of them were going to die... Looks like to me the guy on the bottom was being beaten to the point where he would need facial reconstruction and require hospitalization. (He did.) At first my money is on that guy. Oh, and it looks like the guy on the bottom was also uniformed police officer... Mmmm, that's a cop! Yeah, that's easy money the cop is gonna win, he is a ringer! Aaaaand people are saying cop was wrong? Where in America, who in America, could possibly look at that and say the cop was wrong??? It was a pedestrian stop? You know Chris Rock, right...? "If you don't want to get shot at by the police then don't run from the police, don't fight the police," etc. Aren't we supposed to obey their reasonable requests and lawful orders. Do I get to beat up the next uniform police office that pulls me over or stops me knowing I can fight him am win the fight, and nearly kill him, that he can't SHOOT me? Wow! Can you say anarchy? (Fer ya'll tha' don' git it ya'll say it liken this, AN-ER-KEE. It be meanin' a state of society within no gov'ment or laws 'n such.) Another example of Midwest backward thinkin'. We, Missouri, CONTINUE to be an embarrassment to this nation with our backward thinking. From as recently as how Ferguson (sp?) was handled, to a State Constitutional Amendment banning same sex marriage, to a previous Governor draping classic statues women in the capitol, and businesses are leaving out State in droves.

I don't trust City Hall even when the proposal isn't vaguely worded.

Many thanks to Karen Dillon and The Pitch for the continuing excellent reporting on

Firefighters are the bravest people on earth. RIP.

Re: “Kansas City B-Cycle expansion going slowly; new stations hopefully by the end of the year

I'm going to be completely honest; I was really excited about the B-Cycle program when I first learned about it but when I saw the details it became just a running joke...or rather a riding joke. The fee system first took me for odd that it seemed a little steep. Anyone that would consider the annual rate would be better off just using that $65 charge to grab a bike from Target unless they have severe commitment issues. Mainly though, the $2000 replacement fee...I understand in this article they mentioned that the manufacturer has to use American Steel, have things really gotten that bad in our production systems. The bikes seemed to be designed to not be flashy in the least bit so how could they rack up a ridiculous cost like that. That's the reason my friends and I all burst into laughter when we see them "oh jeez, look at that pricey gray paint-job", "I bet the frame was smoothed over with a diamond finish, then had the finish thrown in the trash", "they have to be completely hollow and filled with gold, that explains it"
Can someone honestly explain why a simple, stream-line bike like that has such an unexpected price tag?

Re: “Anthony Bruno's family records Kansas City police officers tearing down memorial ribbons (video)

Middle aged lady...now EVERYONE knows Bruno was a firefighter. Now everyone knows Hubbard lies. He also responded to an incident that was way out of his league and was not prepared according to the rules. So what's your point?

Re: “Anthony Bruno's family records Kansas City police officers tearing down memorial ribbons (video)

The whole kcfd vs kcpd argument is tired and played out. The officer didn't know he was a firefighter during the incident. And this is not a police brutality case. Watch the video. Mr. Bruno was beating the hell out of his head and face and that would be more than a misdemeanor. You must pay and have permits to put up signage. This is being blown way out of proportion and the pitch didn't tell the while story. Not surprising. There is spin on everything.

Bruno was blackout drunk and seriously assaulting a cop, it was not a slap fight, deadly force was justified

Re: “Anthony Bruno's family records Kansas City police officers tearing down memorial ribbons (video)

So Ti, in your opinion, black-out drunk, assault and resisting arrest justifies taking this young man's life? If that is the case, then a whole slew of drunk, violent people would be wiped out because people do the above all the time. Only difference is they get due process of the law not death.
By adapting this attitude, you may create what we all fear. Total police state and that is a very disturbing state.

Obvious answer for FiveO watch the video. The officers were asked if they were ordered to take them down, reply was,"Nope!" That's what this article is about.

As soon as you resort to name calling and bashing Samantha, you loose all credibility. Which shows your true motive.

Stephanie is a shitty ass attorney and that bitch will say anything to get another dollar, just from personal experiences and her extreme unprofessionalism.

Firefighters vs. Police? really?
Sounds like a horrible Stallone movie waiting to happen.
....and starring Vin Diesel as Jay Nixon.

Celina's Burger is amazing and superlative. The restaurant is the ugliest eatery in the universe. I hate to eat there. It is depressing. Maybe that is why it is not on the list.

"What these officers have done was out of pure hatred and spite."
Question for KC Resident: Curious why you say officers removed some of the Bruno Signage out of pure hatred and spite? Did you speak to the officers that removed some of the signage and they tell you this? Did you consider higher powers (city officials) may have ordered them to go remove the signage? This incident has created friction between firefighters and police. Sad for everyone in the community no matter what side you are on.

Re: “Anthony Bruno's family records Kansas City police officers tearing down memorial ribbons (video)

Trying to rationalize a POLICE OFFICER MURDERING A PERSON because he beat up 2 people is absolutely insane. Is the penalty for misdemeanor assault now "the death penalty without a trial"? Bruno should have been arrested and charged accordingly, not have deadly force used against him.

Let me guess, you all also think Michael Brown deserved to die because he stole some cigars.
