People across Kansas are frustrated with the COVID-19 vaccine distribution rollout plan and the slow pace the vaccine is being administered. This week Governor Laura Kelly and KDHE Secretary Dr. Lee Norman said Kansas is in the top tier for vaccine distribution despite lagging behind nearby states.
The attorney for a former Kansas City Kansas Police detective filed a civil rights lawsuit in federal court in Wichita on Thursday. 35 year old Lionel Womack says he was traveling in western Kansas on August 15, 2020 when he was pulled over by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper. He then led authorities from at least three agencies on a car chase before running from the vehicle and into a field where a Kiowa County sheriff’s deputy ran over him with his patrol vehicle.
