SCHEDULE: WHEN AND WHERE TO STAND AGAINST CITY HALL TAKEOVER OF THE KANSAS CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT!!!
Just stumbled upon a bit of an epiphany here at TKC . . . Yes, you've probably already noted this but it takes me awhile to really make up my mind about things - Probably why most GFs bail while I contemplate the institution of marriage and getting into a deal that ends in either divorce or death.
Also . . . TKC has MORE SKILLZ for naming things than old school Dead Tree Media hacks . . .
But I digress . . .
We're not talking about KCPD local control . . . Just as KCPD Chief Forté noted previously, Kansas City already has local control of our police, and that's why KCPD top brass AND rank and file oppose this move.
Accordingly . . .
LOCAL CONTROL IS A MISNOMER AND WHAT KANSAS CITY OPPOSES IS A CITY HALL TAKEOVER OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT!!!
One more time for the cheap seats . . .
LET'S CHANGE THE LANGUAGE OF THIS DEBATE . . . OPPOSE A CITY HALL TAKEOVER OF THE POLICE BECAUSE KANSAS CITY ALREADY HAS LOCAL CONTROL!!!
Here's why this works . . .
- City Hall has a knack for screwing up everything they touch.
- City Hall takeover puts police pensions one step closer to the misplaced priorities of Mayor and Council.
- Opposing a City Hall takeover just sounds good.
So, because Dead Tree Media is in Mayor Sly's pocket . . . TKC offers this desperate hope to change the media spin on this debate as we see the public and the rank and file realign the biased naming of the repeated discussion . . . It's a City Hall takeover and nothing besides.
TL wit . . .
Here's the sched of the upcoming discussion that starts in Northland copland and then moves South to the East Side.
