The Shocking Reason Behind Paper’s Delay in Publishing Photo of Accused KC Chiefs Parade Shooter

We have previously reported that there was a horrific shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Victory Parade in the Union Station Area on February 14th.

Prosecutors said that the shooting resulted in one woman’s death and at least 22 other injuries.

In connection with the gunfire outside Union Station on Wednesday, two men are facing murder and other felony counts. Dominic M. Miller (18), of Kansas City, and Lyndell M. Mays (22), of Raytown, each face charges of second-degree murder, armed criminal activity, and unlawful use of a weapon.

Each is being held under a $1 million bond.

Twelve children are among the wounded.

Two juveniles were also arrested for gun charges, but their names were not revealed as they had not been charged with adult crimes and were still in the juvenile system.

The documents stated that Mays admitted that he had drawn his gun and began shooting because the people who were threatening him said “I’m Going to Get You” and that to him meant “I’m Going to Kill You”.

Mays said that the other shooters only started firing after he shot.

The alleged gunman responded, “Stupid man,” when investigators asked him why he had “advanced” with them. Just grabbed a gun and started shooting. I should not have done that. “Just being stupid,” stated the documents.

These actions are probably the most stupid I have ever seen.

Our sister site Townhall has picked up something very bizarre about the Kansas City Star’s refusal to publish the booking photos of the two adult shooters.

This is their editor’s letter, trying to answer the question as to why they hadn’t published the images before.

The Star has published a booking picture for Lyndell, who was treated in a hospital on Tuesday and then taken to the Jackson County Detention Center. The Star waited until Wednesday before publishing a booking picture of Dominic M. Miller. Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office stated Wednesday morning that Miller was still in the hospital, and hadn’t yet been photographed. We also carefully considered whether booking mugs should be used in the absence of other images of adult suspects. The Star’s policy is to only use booking mugs for the most serious crimes.

What the hell, that sounds like a Kamala Harris-style word salad.

Seriously? They claim to only use mugshots of “high-profile crimes.” What purpose does not publishing it serve?

How is it that the Kansas City Super Bowl Parade shooting, which left so many people injured and killed one woman, was not considered the “highest-profile crime” in the United States when the story has been a national hit? Didn’t the mugshots serve the reporting that they wanted to do? The Editor’s note must have led to a flood of questions.

Somehow, I think that note won’t answer these questions.
