POWER MOVE OF THE WEEK: KANSAS CITY URBAN LEAGUE EXEC GWEN GRANT LEADS CRITICISM OF GOV. JAY AMID FERGUSON, MISSOURI CRISIS & HOPEFULLY HEALING!!!



Here's an important look at how the local discourse and the leadership of a Kansas City Power Player contribute to a national discussion.

We'll have more POWER RANKINGS later but this recent advocacy deserves special mention.

THIS WEEK KANSAS CITY'S OWN GWEN GRANT LED THE WAY IN CRITICISM OF GOV. JAY THAT RESULTED IN A BETTER RESPONSE TO FERGUSON, MISSOURI UNREST!!!

Check it:

New York Times: “I think his historical lack of authentic connections and engagement with the black community is apparent in this situation by what I consider to be a tardy response to what is happening in Ferguson,” said Gwendolyn Grant, the president and chief executive of the Urban League of Greater Kansas City.

Last night Ferguson was peaceful but more recent deets seems to be causing a bit more rage . . . Here are a few important facts on the subject:

Fox4: Ferguson fuming as police release officer’s name and criminal case against Michael Brown

Reuters: Officer in Missouri shooting unaware teen was a suspect: police

USA Today: Read police report from Ferguson, Mo.


KCTV5: Michael Brown suspected of punching store clerk just before death

Hopefully, the peace will continue but tonight it's worth noting that KANSAS CITY LEADS THE DISCUSSION.

TKC, you need to rank Governor Jay Nixon as your biggest loser of the week. He has totally screwed up the situation no matter what side of the political spectrum you fall on.

Ms. Grant,

Where is your voice and outrage with the "black on black" crime and killing in the urban core?

EXCLUSIVE: Friend of OFFICER DARREN WILSON Speaks Out on Shooting of Mike Brown said...

“Josie,” a friend of Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, called into The Dana Loesch Radio Show today. Josie gave Officer Wilson’s side of the story.


Here’s the transcript:


“He pulled up ahead of them. And then he got a call-in that there was a strong-arm robbery. And, they gave a description. And, he’s looking at them and they got something in their hands and it looks like it could be what, you know those cigars or whatever. So he goes in reverse back to them. Tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again. He tried to get out. He stands up.

And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car. Punches him in the face and them Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away. And the gun goes off.

Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”

You can watch the video at Dana Radio. Dana says the caller was vetted.http://danaloeschradio.com/alleged-friend-of-officer-darren-wilson-offers-his-side/

68 cops killed a year by gun thugs, 29 blacks killed by police since 2012, 9000 blacks killed a year, 93 percent of that by other blacks.

Nothing to be concerned about.

Gwen Grant's dedication to the narrative of victimization has paid her big dividends over the years. Another black, liberal apparatchik whose predictable, vacuous, inane blatherings are in lock step with Sharpton and Jackson.

No surprises here, just another "Community Activist" plying her trade and hypnotizing the chickens.

Keep in mind, of course, that I can only view things through my special Bitter White Male Reality Prism, which turns everything into something only I can understand.

Your lack of originality and theft of my name is of course symptomatic of you, your argument and dedication to the obfuscation of facts.

Killing the messenger won't change the reality on the streets.

Gwen Grant is a shill, you are less.

Get the Military Off of Main Street

Arm police with sling shots.

Anonymous said...

Them same complete turnip truck rubes who complain about the militarization of the police are probably the same Libertarian dipshits who want the public to be able to own fully automatic weapons. See how the two just might be linked? A fully armed public gets you... GET THIS... a Fallujah-outfitted police department.

Be careful what you wish for, dullards.

Someone needs to explain to the national press that, in Missouri, Strong Armed Robbery, is a felony crime involving violence and force. Had teh shopkeeper blown Brown's shit away there is no way a prosecutor or grand jury indict after looking at the video of that big fat shit bag assaulting that clerk, stealing his property and using force to commit the theft. MSNBC ought to be ashamed of themselves for the way they have manufactured complete bullshit while stuffing their noses up Brown's relatives collectives asses. The apparent circumstances of Browns death are sad, but it does not take a rocket scientist to look at that Michael piece of shit and know where he was going to end up. I can not defend the apparent actions of the police on this one, but it seems a shame that young officer is going to end up doing life over a shit bag that was just waiting for Karma to bite him in the ass.
