TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HOPES TO AVOID FALLOUT OF THE FERGUSON, MISSOURI UPRISING!!!



So far Kansas City's response to the ongoing conflict in Ferguson, Missouri has been peaceful and well-meaning.

A non-violent rally was well attended by local activists and mostly kind souls who wanted to convey their dissent constructively and show just a bit of solidarity with STL area protestors without taking down an innocent Quiktrip.

However . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS FEAR THE FALLOUT FROM FERGUSON, MISSOURI RIOTS AND CONTINUING VIOLENCE!!!

Nearly every Saturday night in this town has been a hot mess with violent flash mobs dominating either The Plaza or Westport.

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS HAVE WARNED MAYOR SLY THAT HIS ROCK THE BLOCK EVENT IS A BAD IDEA AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SPIN OUT OF CONTROL OR SIMPLY TURN VIOLENT LIKE IT HAS IN YEARS PAST!!!



Our blog community FIRST noted pleas to the mayor to postpone the event . . .

The Mayor chose to ignore and deny what was simply a call for caution with a bit of bravado and willful ignorance.

Moreover . . .

MAKE NO MISTAKE, WE WOULD LIKE NOTHING MORE THAN A SAFE EVENT WITHOUT INCIDENT BUT NOBODY IS REPORTING THAT THERE HAS BEEN PROBLEMS AT THESE PARTIES PREVIOUSLY!!!

Moreover . . .

IGNORING THE POTENTIAL FOR TROUBLE AS UP TO 4K KANSAS CITY URBAN CORE YOUNGSTERS GATHER NEAR DOWNTOWN IS NOTHING LESS THAN DANGEROUS!!!

One more . . .

THANKFULLY, WE'VE HEARD THAT OUR BLOG COMMUNITY WARNING HAS BEEN NOTED AND THERE WILL BE INCREASED SECURITY @ ROCK THE BLOCK!!!

Really, that's all we wanted to hear but Mayor Sly turns just about every question to his administration into a challenge because he simply doesn't understand that political discourse shouldn't be about "winning at all costs" and communicating with Kansas City needs to be more substantive than simply sharing selfies and backslapping on Twitter. Finally, we can't help but notice that Mayor Sly's stubbornness and brash tactics have increasingly become an Achilles heel to his mayoral administration as their lists of failures continues to grow.

Brief aside . . . The fallout doesn't just include tonight's pizza/dance party but also holds consequences for law enforcement in Kansas City i.e. local cops don't seem to like talk about body cam legislation. But I digress...

Again, let's go on record and reiterate that we want nothing less than absolute safety and security for any Kansas City young person who attends this event. However, it's important to note that a cynical survey of tonight's party just seems like the Mayor is using students as props to support his agenda without completely understanding the reality of an ongoing racial crisis in Missouri and how quickly crowds can be incited not by bloggy news content written for adults with sophisticated humor, style, taste and wit . . . But by circumstances that are still unfolding. 

Accordingly, here are some of the latest links from Ferguson, Missouri that kinda prove our blog community point in practice rather than rely on sentimental social media pleasantries . . .

Hey TKC, here's something you should know. There's an information lockdown tonight for RTB. They aren't letting reporters cover the event and they're telling everyone not to show up. FYI

Ferguson Police want to send a message to the middle class: If we take the boot off the black community's neck, they will loot you.

Kansas City Falling Star token minority writer of all things superficial and frivolous, J. Osterizer, seemingly goes "all-in" with her Saturday column, reinforcing her previous faulty efforts to defend Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri.

Adopting the liberal activist line that the Ferguson Police released store video of a "person who may or may not be Michael Brown" (no doubt whatsoever!) stealing, in order to assassinate his character, and that his criminal history has absolutely no bearing in this case. This is an example of the "gotcha" politics played by the race-baiting activists----demand the video be released, and then when it hurts your case by substantiating police accounts, accuse the police of prejudice and engaging in character assassination!

Ms. Osterizer, as before, once again gets lost in a litany of unrelated incidents and racial attitudes that have nothing to do with the Ferguson case. She cherry-picks a few historical cases where white criminals lived to see their day in court, while neglecting to mention all the black criminals who have also been apprehended without being killed. One wonders if Ms. Osterizer knows that are prisons are crowded with living-breathing black men!

I found it particularly disturbing that Ms. Osterizer chose to reference in a positive way two local black rappers who apparently made the scene at the recent Plaza protest. Holding up as positive role models young black males who rap with vulgarity about violence, drugs, whores, anti-police, "niggers", "bitches", etc., is perhaps one small part of the perpetual cycle of violence commonly found in urban America. Ms. Osterizer is helping to perpetuate this cycle by using her column to highlight the wrong people.

Congratulations Ms. Osterizer, by choosing to side with the militant left, the race-baiters and outside provocateur extortionists, some in our society will continue to believe that law enforcement is the enemy, when in fact those men and women in uniform, black-white-latino-asian are the 24 hours/7 days a week guardians of our society, maintaining order out of an otherwise anarchistic chaos. Congratulations!

While the Polar Bear would love nothing more than a civil uprising at tonights "Hood rat blow fest" that would include burning George Guestello at the stake, in seriousness, which is very seldom from the Bear...... Hopefully tonights event, however stupid and ill advised, goes off without a St. Louis type rumble.

If you have ever handled C-4 or dynamite, the inherit risks are beyond a normal persons grasp.

4,000 "hoodisrattis urbanis" gathered at Union Station with a powder keg about to blow across the state in St Louis is blatant disregard for common fucking sense. S'lie James is a fucking moron. Nothing more. How a fuck wit like that could get a law degree and pass the bar tells you all you need to know about today's legal profession. It is inundated by total idiots. A dimwit like the Bear could and has taken the LSAT and scored well beyond the required minimum to be accepted into 90% of the Law Schools in the US. Now that is scary.

The Polar Bear wishes you well tonight citizens of Killa City. Who knows, perhaps it will be a good time for all. The Bear was dead wrong about the Thursday "Vigil" and "Projected Plaza Burning".........BUT........the "hoodisrattis urbanis" may show their true selves yet. They don't seem to disappoint that often.

Brilliant and to the point!

The mayor is fucked. he doesn't know whether to shit or go blind. No matter what he does he is wrong on this one. if he cancels the event, he will admit to the city, that he believes blacks are trouble seeking criminals who once again, can't be trusted to eschew violence. If he lets the event proceed and there is no problem, he is still criticized for risking an apocolypse for political gain (And trust me, there IS the possibiltiy of an apocolypse.). If he lets the event proceed and there is gunfire and loss of life, or looting and destruction, he is REALLY fucked.

You can like or not like the mayor, but he is earning his fucking money today.

My guess, is that there will be such an overwhelming police force there that he will slide by. It will be close, because the fact is, large gatherings of this nature are usually going to create problems.

I wish him luck, he will need it.

It would be a great night to rob that bank you have been thinking about knocking over. All the cops in the city will be in one place.

It's a no win situation. If the there's an overwhelming police presence, it invites a confronation. If there's a small police presence, it invites violence in the crowd. Nobody wins here.

Hi guys, Glenn here again.
I've equipped 50 young urban youths with GoPro cameras thanks to an emergency funding effort by Sly and the city council.
Tomorrow we have told the kids to download the footage so that we can see if there were any problems that need addressing by the community, such as the sidewalks being too narrow causing confrontation, lines at the soda stands being too long causing confrontation, not enough cooling fans in the area causing confrontation, these types of things.
It's a groundbreaking effort to fully immerse ourselves in this diverse culture and finally find a way to meet their specific and particular needs.

Good news! In the interests of peace racial diversity we will be busing in 800 Asian folk, 800 Latinos and 800 Whites. We will be playing Luke Warm's new rap hit, "Hands Up" with sound bites of Rodney Kings famous,"Can't We All Just Get Along." Happy Union at the Station everyone.

Who can blame them? During riots in Detroit in '67, people held neighborhood meeting for developing their strategy for defending the area if the riots should spill out into the neighborhood. Of course 90%+ of them were WWII vets so it shouldn't have been a surprise that they knew their way around firearms. They knew that if the worst came to be that the police would not be able to keep their families safe so they looked to each other for help. And that's exactly what's happening in MO. People know that when the whip comes down the government cannot and will not be able to protect them. And that's precisely one of the reasons for the 2nd Amendment.

Unbelievable that a heared of thieves use a young man's death as an excuse to loot, steal and ruin businesses. This kind of shit will turn America against those thieving low life sonzabitches. Even the shop keeper who was robbed by Brown and company got looted. How can you have empathy when decent people have to witness this bullshit and members of the press who rationalize the behaviour and simply anger spilling over? These are nothing but opportunist thugs who deserve the tear gas and militarized cops they cry like babies about.

How about we bring in the Highway Patrol for security at the event. They think they are gods gift to law enforcement anyway.
It's funny how an agency that really provides no community policing and doesn't even answer most calls for police services is supposed to secure the city if Ferguson.

"Later, the Rev. Jesse Jackson showed up before an appearance at a Ferguson church. At 6:30 p.m. Jackson walked arm-in-arm with about 50 people down West Florissant Avenue, toward the apartment complex where Brown was killed."

"U.S. Rep Emanuel Cleaver, D-Kansas City, was also at the church and had harsh criticism of Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. "There is not a thimble's worth of trust that anyone can place in the chief of police of Ferguson," he said."
..........

I highlight this news excerpt to demonstrate 2 things:

1) The "Reverend" Jesse Jackson is an opportunistic pandering peacock, who, please remember fathered a child out-of-wedlock while married to another woman. My goodness, that's mighty Christian of you!! Jesse Jackson's son, Jesse Jr., and daughter-in-law were convicted of stealing campaign funds for their personal use, and sentenced to prison. What would Jesus think?

2) The "Reverend" Emmanuel Cleaver who's constantly talking about his efforts to promote "civility" in society, is once again proven to be a fork-tongued hate-spewing serpent of hypocrisy!

Makes me wonder if Mr. Cleaver has lost all knowledge of his bible teachings, as I recall the oft-quoted passage...."He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."

From a friend of Ferguson Police Officer Wilson's family:

Officer Wilson was on patrol and noticed two males walking down the middle of the street. He slowed his vehicle, lowered his window, and instructed them to get on the sidewalk, out of the street. They ignored his instructions and continued walking in the same direction as he watched them now in his rear-view mirror.
He pulled to the side of the street, and heard over his police radio a strong-arm robbery report with descriptions of two suspects which matched the two he had just encountered.
He backed his vehicle to the two men, still in the street, and as he began to exit his patrol car, Michael Brown shoved the door, pushing Officer Wilson back into the vehicle. A physical struggle ensued whereby Officer Wilson grabbed a hold of Michael Brown, and was punched by Michael Brown. Now under physical assault, Officer Wilson reached for his gun, at which point Michael Brown attempted to wrest control of the gun, and one round was fired inside the patrol car during the struggle.
Michael Brown and accomplice then ran down the street, were about 35 feet away, when Officer Wilson ordered them to halt with their hands in the air. The two stopped, turned toward Officer Wilson and began taunting him with something like "What are you going to do?" Michael Brown began running full-speed toward the officer at which time Officer Wilson began firing his weapon. The first couple of shots failed to stop Michael Brown moving forward. The last shot was a round to the forehead, at which time Michael Brown finally fell to the pavement, just in front of Officer Wilson.

As the facts continue to surface in this case, more and more people will realize that Officer Wilson followed standard police protocol and was not acting outside the rules of engagement. I would not be surprised if the toxicology report indicates Michael Brown was under the influence of drugs at the time of his death. Either way, Michael Brown had just robbed a store, disobeyed a police officer, assaulted a police officer, attempted to take the officer's weapon, and while at gunpoint rushed toward the officer in an aggressive threatening manner.

Michael Brown is dead because Michael Brown had no respect for a business owner, a police officer, and most importantly himself.
I do not mourn for Michael Brown, I mourn for the innocent people and businesses in Ferguson, and most importantly for the extended family of Officer Wilson.

Anonymous said...

Dorian Johnson, who says he was with Brown when the shooting happened, has described a different story.

However, since Dorian Johnson participated in the store robbery with Michael Brown minutes before the confrontation, his testimony cannot be trusted. Mr. Johnson is a criminal who is attempting to elude his responsibility for this incident.
