Kobe Bryant and eight others were killed on Jan. 26, 2020, when their helicopter crashed on a hillside.
During the response efforts, a number of firefighters and police officers engaged in what some have deemed inappropriate behavior.
Among the alleged improprieties: taking photographs of the accident site and ruins in hopes of showing off the high-profile emergency scene for non-professional purposes.
Fortunately, it looks like karma has come around for those who stood accused of participating in these activities.
Earlier this year, Kobe’s wife, Vanessa, went hard after the police officers who she believes wronged her husband and her daughter.
As it turns out, the firefighters that are alleged to be involved got their just desserts as well.
According to Eric Leonard and Andrew Blankstein of NBC News, “the two firefighters were sent ‘intention to discharge’ letters in December after a fire department internal investigation concluded they had taken photos of the dead bodies in the helicopter wreckage that ‘served no business necessity’ and ‘only served to appeal to baser instincts and desires for what amounted to visual gossip,’ Bryant’s attorneys said.”
That’s one way to watch a game. https://t.co/rlfZSR4DDe

Whether she’s sending special gifts to celebs like Kim Kardashian in hopes of keeping Kobe’s memory alive, or saving her late husband’s fans from scams, or fending off unfortunate claims from her mother — Vanessa has handled everything and anything that has come her way with nothing but the utmost class.
As such, it should come as no surprise that she made it a special point to go after the firefighters involved in this whole situation and ensure that her family got the justice it deserved.
