Jay-Z's Team Roc Accuses Police in Kansas City, Kansas, Of Covering Up Misconduct

 

The Team Roc,Jay-Z's philanthropic group, has filed a lawsuit against the police department in Kansas City, Kansas, in an effort to obtain complaints of alleged misconduct against officers. The suit, filed Monday in the Wyandotte County District Court, claims the department denied record requests involving officers from its investigative division who have been accused of misconduct.


The KCKPD is entrusted by the public to help maintain peace in the community. Yet, for years, it appears that officers have abused their power and engaged in wrongdoing," the lawsuit reads. "To the extent that the KCKPD did not take any steps to remediate these issues, the public should have a right to know so they can organize and take appropriate steps to effect change."
