MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY EMINENT DOMAIN AND THE UPCOMING KCPD EAST PATROL!!!



Kansas City's East Patrol has been embroiled in controversy throughout this year.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS KANSAS CITY DOCUMENTARY FEATURING HOME OWNERS DISPLACED BY THE UPCOMING KCPD EAST PATROL!!!

27th + Prospect Promo (Rough Draft)

We're gonna take a minute and watch it right now . . .

More deets from Vimeo . . .

"60 residents of Kansas city Missouri's Urban Core are losing their homes for a tree, a parking lot, and a crime lab.

"This is the (Rough Draft) of the promo video for the 27th + Prospect Feature length documentary aimed to be completed in the summer of 2013.

"The film follows the events and individuals surrounding the construction of new East Patrol campus to be located in the heart of Kansas city Mo, and explores how the project represents the City's current void for progressive thinking in regards to Urban planning, community engagement, and Historical Preservation."

Sadly, mainstream media only scratches at the surface of this debate that will undoubtedly serve to define community perception of East Patrol and might dictate levels of cooperation in this embattled Kansas City neighborhood.

DEVELOPING . . .

Look up an HBO documentary called "27th & Prospect" from the 90's. I'm sure that area has gotten much better in the 17 or so years since that got made

That film is actually pretty good.

I do not see how this land grab increases the chances that Jeremy Ploeger will pay Chris Moreno for his valuable time and vital expertise? Certainly, Mr. Ploeger looks like an unworthy risk for bank loans when he cannot make payroll.

If PR press conferences, rap videos, breathless ribbon cuttings, and promo videos actaully improved anything in the city, KCMO would be the world class place the boosters incesantly crow about.
Maybe a little less PR and a whole lot more actual accomplishments and performance are what we need.
No, not the streetcar.

@ 11/30/12 6:30 AM Apparently, improvements in race relations in the United States and Missouri have been made since 20 years have lapsed.

Things have changed. Your perception, unfortunately, has not. Checkt he facts and look up crime statistics. Your neighborhood is possibly more violent than this area has been in the last five years.

When will we get past the old 1960's mentality from more than 40 years ago.

Really? I would have guessed about seven thousand.

But yeah, day after the day, the same stupid jokes, the same lame headlines. The same nuclearexplosion.jpg - I see what you mean.

Phoney Phleoger pay Moreno will you. Pay your debts deadbeat. And tell all the people you like penis more than the girls you are pandering as football players.

PAY UP PHONY

Great point! What improvement would you like to see?

DavidSummerly said...

What in the world?

Bulldoze the east side said...

Bulldoze the east side.

All of it.

That would be an improvement, even if nothing was built in place of what was bulldozed.

Yeah, you must be new here. I think Ray Salva is emulating Chris Moreno in a desperate attempt to raise funds to repay his $60,000 social security disability debt. Or...something absurd like that.
Welcome to TKC though.

It needs more grit to show the truth of what is. For a draft, it's coming together nicely. We need to hear (in reverberation) "We knew nothing of this project"

String those sound-bites together and show the blindsided nature of this East Patrol Beast! BOOM!

Need to hear more about the sinister, greedy, gold-toothed Preacher who helped ease old people out of their property!

What happened to "forty-acres and a mule"? Instead, we see a coward Preacher cheat 60 residents out of their property...wait for it... AND HE'S BLACK! Genius!

This move set civil rights back 100 years in Kansas City! Christians are rejoicing everywhere! The new house nigga is the Preacher on Prospect!

Those images should come in to thunder and lightning; like the gates of hell just opened up! Then, give him red-eye for effect.

Then show the clips of the Project Head being interviewed for stealing from his mother!
Better background music and we’ve got a winner!

Overall, good start. Tweak to perfection!

KC is such a jike! They go into the core areas and build shit thinking they are going to enhance the neighborhood and all they do is chase the hoodlums out to the burbs with all the folks who left KC to get away from the inner city bullshit. How ironic that the city used the PD as a pawn in a game where the crime lab will only push crime into other areas with less enforcement activity.

This location will prove to be an absolute disaster for the people who live on the eastern part of the East patrol division.
