KANSAS CITY FRUSTRATION WITH JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR MEAN JEAN?!?!
Yesterday . . . The story of a South Kansas City rampage from a guy who just got out of jail raised a lot of questions about The Prosecutor's office and their efforts to keep the most violent offenders off the streets.
To even out their coverage . . . KCTV5 wrote this love letter to Jackson County Prosector "Mean" Jean Peters Baker:
KCTV5: Jackson County prosecutor does more than just put criminals away

Mean Jean has been at the forefront of the fight against the Catholic Church . . .
She has made more than a few high profile cases . . .
But the ongoing and increased quotient of Kansas City murder and crime has brought more scrutiny over the way her office handles violent offenders.

But I do know that when prosecutors typically face criticism from the public. The blame is quickly passed along to judges. Natch.
