TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FORMER UMKC BASKETBALL LEGEND MICHAEL WATSON WILL LEAD THE KANSAS CITY AD HOC GROUP AGAINST CRIME!!!
Thanks to a TKC TIPSTER who sent information about the line of succession for Kansas City's Ad Hoc Group Against Crime late last night. We learned of the valuable info and then checked it out with a TRUSTED AND KICK-ASS SOURCE who confirmed news of a new Ad Hoc leader.
To wit . . .
UMKC BASKETBALL LEGEND MICHAEL WATSON WILL LEAD KANSAS CITY'S AD HOC GROUP AGAINST CRIME!!!
A Kansas City community minded volunteer and expert calls the decision "a poor choice."
A few online links regarding Mr. Watson:

Certainly, Mr. Watson has achieved some notable success but his leadership has yet to be proven to the vast majority of Kansas City residents.
Moreover, the decision to forgo more connected and seasoned leadership is largely regarded by insiders as a move from the Ad Hoc Board Of Directors to hold on to their influence rather than promote the best interests of the important Kansas City institution. Real Talk: Mr. Watson will have to overcome the notion that he was selected for the Ad Hoc leadership role because he can be easily controlled by the board.
Obviously, we hope Mr. Watson is up to the task of continuing the work of Kansas City anti-violence stalwart Alvin Brooks.
