SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED CLAIMS POLICE RACIALLY PROFILE BLACK TEENS ON THE PLAZA!!!
Councilman Jermaine Reed is repeating his attack against what he believes are unacceptable tactics by the KCPD in controlling the ongoing violent teen flash mobs problem on the Country Club Plaza.
Last year he made these same claims but now the young council dude is starting his campaign even before the City Hall hearing on this topic is scheduled.
Here's a peek . . .
City leader claims group of teens unfairly targeted in Plaza curfew arrests
And so . . .
LIKE IT OR NOT, AND JUST AS TKC TIPSTERS PREDICTED . . . VIOLENT TEEN FLASH MOBS ON THE PLAZA ARE ONCE AGAIN THE FOCUS OF A DIVISIVE DEBATE EVEN BEFORE THE WARM WEATHER BEGINS!!!
"Last summer, more than a dozen teens were cited for causing problems on the Plaza and violating the city’s entertainment district curfew. Kansas City Councilman Jermaine Reed said Tuesday new data he obtained from Kansas City police shows 87 percent of the teens cited between May and September of 2013 were black.
"When I look at this information, it does give me a great deal of pause in terms of doing what’s right for the citizens of Kansas City," Reed said.
"According to documents obtained by Councilman Reed, 16 teens were issued citations for violating the city’s entertainment district curfew law during the summer of 2013. Of those teens cited, 14 of them were black. Reed questions if Kansas City Police Officers are racially profiling Black teens."
Sadly, more programs for youngsters didn't solve this problem last year and now politicos are challenging police tactics as the problem spirals out of control . . . Or as election season gets closer.
