Well, point a shotgun at a police officer, maybe you deserve to be dead?

Trial begins for Lawrence man accused of threatening a police officer with a shotgun

Likely not. The family would have sued, and no matter how justified, you know cities would "settle" for some monetary amount.

Also, knowing that police do not shoot at the leg (only happens on movies and TV), this sounds like lucky shot for Mr. Ortiz, and not that the LEO was a bad shot. That or he was a REALLY good shot, and did aim for the leg.

Lawrence City Commission to decide on increased parking fines

I've not heard of this. Generally if you work with the city clerk/court, they will work with you.

Former Kansas high school athlete fatally shot by Alabama police officer

"Another black teenager being taken by law enforcement"

Well.. Here's a hint.. Stop attacking or pulling guns on law enforcement.

Now what? Let's riot and destroy our city? Let the investigators do their jobs in determining what happened.

Subcommittee created to select Lawrence mayor for remainder of 2016

Our city commission doesn't lead or govern. Any time a decision has to be made, it has to go to a sub committee. Didn't they get selected to do that part?

Lawrence Police Department hoping to hire 19 this spring to prepare for high 'anomaly' of officer retirement

Do people really have to be killed for you to care about this? In 2013, the city of Lawrence had 97 alcohol related accidents, and 119 accidents that were related to speed or otherwise. Not really that much of a difference.....
There are around 135 fatalities involving alcohol / year in the state of Kansas. 135 too many.

By the way, this article deals with an upcoming extreme shortage of police officers. An understaffing of 8 by the end of this year, and nearly under staffing by 15 next year. According to documents in front of city commission, that's the equivalent of an entire shift.

Questions and concerns about the Douglas County Sheriff's Office withholding mugshot photos of crime suspects

LPD has no control over this. State law dictates, the Sheriff's Office holds the jails. This is the Sheriff's Office. They take the mugshots, they store the mugshots, and they release the mugshots. LPD controls LPD, EPD controls EPD, KSHP controls KSHP.
