Is it possible that the other two officers involved in this tragedy should be charged with conspiracy? An officer pushes a man down the stairs in his own home and the other two did nothing about it... not even call for paramedics? Just left him there and then the brother finds him?
To Overland PD... Where is the conduct on that?
They not only left with him,they returned and took the surveillance tape(NOT Reingeisen)one of the other officers.3 of them should have been charged with leaving the scene,conspiracy to cover up a crime,obstructing justice,and tampering with evidence.Had this been the normal citizen that committed these things...they would have charged all 3 and added any and all charges they could come up with!

I knew Kenny. Troubled life, troubled death. But I hope the family wins in court because difficult as Kenny could be, the police in this situation were worse. I hope the officer is charged and convicted with involuntary manslaughter.(If he wasn't a cop, he'd be charged with murder - so he's getting off easy. But I believe the fact that he was doing his job and dealing with a difficult person is a mitigating circumstance. I also believe Kenny bears responsibility for having created the situation.) However, proof of police guilt/liability in this case is that they LEFT THE SCENE with him lying there. So wrong. I'm sure they didn't intend to kill him - but their actions resulted in his injury and they didn't call for help. Unforgivable and very revealing. They probably did erase the tape, though I have no way of knowing this for sure. Too bad Joe didn't look at it (or make a copy) before he innocently handed it over to the police.(By the way, it was only three steps, not a "flight of stairs" - but his injury was devastating and resulted in his death none the less.) Sincere condolences to Kenny's family, who loved their imperfect brother/uncle.
YOUR WRONG.........It was a flight of stairs that led to the basement,not the 3 stairs up to the door,and furthermore Ken was harassed by multiple people in the road rage incident.The Internal Affairs report told the whole story..........BULLY with a badge!

I thought the tape was erased? How do they know the police did this?(I don't doubt that they did, just not sure what the evidence was?)
The other 2 officers ratted him out and he wasn't sure if the tape was erased or not.HE PLEADED GUILTY!!!!

Where did you see that the officers called in twice? I don't remember reading this - plus I have other unanswered questions such as: was Kenny conscious or unconscious when the police left him (ie was he capable of refusing assistance?); if the tape was blank, how did they find out that it was the police who did this. I can't imagine them just admitting it. And, were the steps in the picture the ones he fell down, or were they inside? I have heard both. If anyone knows of more info sources I'd like to know too.
Ken was unconscious,with no heartbeat or breathing for 30 minutes before the ambulance even arrived.The steps were inside and led to the basement(14) of them.The other 2 officers ratted him out because they were not sure if the tape had been erased and he pleaded GUILTY!

The Overland cop got off with only 5 years probation and the loss of his job. He didn't even have to appear to his first court date, I know I was following it and was going to be there. He made the deal before his first court appearance. A terrible injustice but I knew this was going to happen by the way Robert McCulloch was talking on the news almost on behalf of the police officers involved. I live in Overland and they are nothing but a rogue police department. I hope the family wins a lawsuit against them for the life they have cost this family.
WRONG.....He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 3yrs and served 1!!!
