TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! BRIGHT SIDE OF MLK DAY IN KANSAS CITY: RANK AND FILE KCPD OVERCOME RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CONTROVERSY!!!
MLK Day in Kansas City is often a celebration of rhetoric and pleasantries but thankfully local insiders have some important good news to share for a change . . .
To wit . . .
RECENTLY INSIDERS REVELED THAT DESPITE AN ONGOING RACIAL DISCRIMINATION BATTLE AT THE TOP LEVEL OF THE KCPD . . . BLACK/WHITE OFFICERS SEEM TO BE GETTING ALONG!!!
Check a couple of comments . . .
"No real racial issues between the rank and file with each other. The main issue is between some racist AA commanders and their treatment of those at a lower rank. The complaints voiced in a recent discrimination case are all true. A lot of very good people suffered because of it."
Another insider said . . .
"Yeah, there are a lot of issues that go beyond race and have to do with management style and working conditions. Not to downplay the controversy but ALL of the rank and file have a lot in common when it comes to worrying about local control coming up and effective use of resources. These issues are (usually) more important than the racial stuff."
As usual, there's a lot of common ground to be shared when it comes to suffering under politics as usual . . . And in Kansas City, the quest for power and consequences of a "win at all costs" local government mentality often outweigh the legacy of racial discrimination.
