KCRG.com's Position on Commenting:
KCRG.com offers commenting on stories as a way for you to join a community conversation. As a member of the media we believe in freedom of speech. KCRG.com stands behind the same First Amendment rights that allow us to uncover and discover important and relevant stories every day.
At times the comments will be passionate and spirited. At the same time, they may be mean-spirited and unsettling. KCRG.com believes both types of conversations promote an open exchange of ideas. KCRG.com reserves the right to remove a comment at any time, but we will not remove a comment because some users disagree or find it offensive.
It is our sincere hope that if a comment elicits a passionate response that you will direct your thoughts and feelings to that conversation. Join in and speak your mind!
