TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! WORD OF UPCOMING KCPD "BLACK TOWN HALL" CREATES CONTROVERSY AND RACIAL DIVISION AMONG RANK & FILE!!!
There has long been talk of racial division within the KCPD and now the topic is part of a growing conversation that has rank & file officers concerned.
To wit . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS NOTICE OF AN UPCOMING KCPD "BLACK TOWN HALL" THAT HAS MANY RANK & FILE OFFICERS CONCERNED ABOUT THE PROMOTION OF RACIAL DIVISION WITHIN KANSAS CITY'S POLICE DEPARTMENT!!!
An insider raises an EXCELLENT point . . .
"Why aren't the issues of other races and persuasions important?"
Here's the notice regarding the meeting that was forwarded far and wide and has been graciously sent this way via carrier pigeon that was put to a delicious death and marinated in a red wine vinaigrette sauce . . .
KCPD BLACK TOWN HALL
There will be a KCPD Black Town Hall on November 2, 2013 at 1300 -1500 hrs. at St. Mark Family Daycare Center, 2008 E. 12th (one block west of 12th Brooklyn). The purpose of the Town Hall is to allow Black officers a forum to discuss: local city political control, promotion, specialized unit selection, recruiting, and Dept. Race Relations.
Commissioner Alvin Brooks (KCPD Board President), Deputy Chief Randy Hopkins (Investigations Bureau), Deputy Chief Randy Hundley (Administration Bureau), Major Rosilyn Allen (Violent Crimes Division), and Sgt. Kari Thompson (Domestic Violence) will be panelist. The moderator will be Sgt. Bill Brown.
This Town Hall is specifically to address the issues of Black officers, so please plan to attend if possible. There will NOT be another KCPD Black Town Hall during your career…
And now the main question facing the public is:
IS WORD OF THE "KCPD BLACK TOWN HALL" SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP TO EASE OR CREATE GREATER RACIAL DIVISION WITHIN OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT?!?!
It's worth noting that many KC Insiders are holding the Chief responsible for this effort and lament a panel that might needlessly create racial division among the KCPD.
