Hello supporters of KC Checkpoint. Some of you may be aware that DUI checkpoint activist and guest blogger at KCCheckpoint.com, Mike Mikkelsen has been charged with a serious crime. I wanted to give our response to some of the allegations made against Mikkelsen by other KC Media and organizations in our community. I should note that I have not communicated with Mikkelsen concerning this issue and thus, the decisions and statements below are unilateral.
KC Checkpoint’s main purpose remains to defend the constitution of the United States against the constant encroachment of the law and law enforcement. We can not be supporters of the constitution and at the same time persecute people who have not been convicted in a court of law. Nor, would we support or give voice to anyone convicted of the crime of which Mikkelsen is accused.
KC Checkpoint is operated by myself in collaboration with @mmikkelsen and @kccolorcode. I have made the decision that until the end of trial Mikkelsen will continue to have a voice on this blog on the specific topics for which kccheckpoint.com is known. We do not plan on addressing this topic again until such time arises that a court determination has been made, at that time we will resolve the issue entirely.
I would also like to note that KC Checkpoint fully supports the causes of the Occupy KC movement. And while our approach to this situation might be slightly different, we understand the difficult situation that organization has been placed in. I ask that you pay no attention to the distractions and stay focused on the causes of our two respective organizations.
The @kccheckpoint twitter feed and the kccheckpoint.com blog will continue, unchanged. Thanks again for your support KC, the KC Checkpoint army continues to grow; currently at 6700 followers! Please feel free to contact us via twitter if you would like to discuss.
