Working on a few other things are are going to be worthwhile, but right now we wanted to highlight this bit of Kansas City testimony . . .
To wit . . .
READ THIS SHOCKING OPEN LETTER TO KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES COMPLAINING OF THE CITY'S TOWING STRATEGY!!!
The missive is written from the perspective of the working poor and highlights challenges posed by tow truck operators and city regs faced by people simply struggling to survive . . .
A letter to mayor sly from a Kansas City Activist and Widower,
Dear Mr. James- do you realize that your police force now tows cars for as little an offense as expired tags? From in front of my house, while I tried to argue. $200 to get it out. What do poor people do? That's almost half a week's pay. What about others less fortunate? I find this a pretty disgusting use of power and a blatant revenue grab. This was not an abandoned vehicle. It's a very well cared for Saab convertible. Not an expensive car, but not an eyesore by any stretch. Don't they have anything better to do? Is this really what our police force is for? How is that protecting and serving? My wife died last month and so, yes, I overlooked renewing my tags. I sort of had bigger things on my plate. My fault. How about they write me a ticket?
Pretty disgusted voting citizen, once again let down by the public servants that are supposed to be on OUR side.
We've removed the name and now we turn it over to you . . . Does this guy have a legitimate gripe? Will the toy train streetcar solve this problem? You decide!!!
More in a bit . . .
