HOW BAD IS IT?

“ …..I HAD TO FLEE KANSAS IN FEAR OF MY LIFE … FOR COOPERATING IN THE INVESTIGATION OF A MURDER OF A … GIRL BEING SEX TRAFFICKED BEFORE SHE WAS KILLED. PLEASE, PLEASE, HELP ME PLEASE.”

“THE CORRUPTION IS NOT ONLY IN OUR POLICE STATION BUT ALL THROUGHOUT THE UNIFIED GOVERNMENT AND THE BOARD OF PUBLIC UTILITIES.”

“…IN KANSAS CITY KANSAS THE POLICE FAILED TO CONDUCT A INVESTIGATION AND PUT ME IN JAIL ON HEARSAY AND NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE…”

“SUPERVISORS ABUSED THEIR POSITION BY MAKING SEXUAL ADVANCES TOWARDS FEMALE DEPUTIES AND CIVILIAN STAFF. THEY USED THEIR POSITION TO INTIMIDATE OTHERS, ESPECIALLY PEOPLE OF COLOR. IT WAS ALSO DIFFICULT TO GO TO WORK WHEN YOUR SUPERVISOR WAS CLEARLY UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL.”
