Protester asked to leave city council meeting

Explosive moments at today’s city council meeting when a protester was asked to leave for disrupting the meeting.

It came after statements over a swatting call that ended in the officer-involved shooting of Andrew Finch and transparency in the police department.

Speakers at the meeting were divided over how the Wichita Police Department has handled the case.

“We are here yet again another week, trying to get answers, trying to get the name released, trying to get accountability and transparency, and we are still not seeing any progress,” said Kathy Camden, a Wichita resident.

Others came out to speak in support of the police department.

“There are those that want the officers name revealed that shot Mr. Finch, there is an investigation still going on, so there has not been proof that what the officer did was illegal or wrong,” said Pastor Jeanne Garrelts, Wichita City Church.

Mayor Jeff Longwell says the investigation is ongoing and that there is only so much the city can do right now.
