When you get into a Wichita taxicab, you face about a 1-in-10 chance of being driven by someone with a felony criminal record.
Fifteen of 131 people licensed to drive taxis in Wichita have been convicted of felonies, according to a check by The Eagle. Thats 11.4 percent of the taxi drivers.
Their crimes include first-degree murder, a fourth DUI, voluntary manslaughter and aggravated sodomy. The man with the murder conviction isnt driving a taxi anymore; he died in July.
The parents of a man fatally shot by Wichita police in Old Town in 2012 have filed a civil lawsuit in federal court, alleging that officers were negligent and excessive in their use of force, and violated the Constitution.
The lawsuit, filed Friday in United States District Court in Kansas City by Randall Smart and Brenda Bryant, also attempts to cast doubt on law enforcement claims that their son, 23-year-old Marquez Smart, fired the shots that prompted a police chase and his eventual killing.
The complaint names the city of Wichita, the Wichita Police Department and two police officers, Lee Froese and Aaron Chaffee, as defendants. Among accusations, it alleges that Smart’s killing was unconstitutional because he was not shot under exceptional circumstances and that Smart did not have a weapon at the time.
Jorge Wong, a radiation oncologist with Central Care Cancer Center, was not negligent when he gave radiation treatments to a patient who may or may not have had cancer, a jury decided Friday.
Wong was sued in Sedgwick County District Court by Nancy Funk of North Newton, who received 15 treatments of radiation therapy from Wong in early 2010.
“I don’t think anyone can say they didn’t have their day in court,” said presiding Judge Warren Wilbert after closing statements on Friday.
