TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS DESCRIBE RUCKUS AND GUNPLAY OUTSIDE KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY'S TROUBLED 'ROCK THE BLOCK' UNION STATION PARTY LAST NIGHT!!!
More than anything, last night our KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY realized (again) that unpleasant facts don't get reported in Kansas City when there's political pressure to present a story in certain light.
To wit . . .
OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY EXCLUSIVELY REPORTS THE WIDESPREAD RUCKUS, FIGHTING AND HOT MESS OUTSIDE OF MAYOR SLY'S PARTY LAST NIGHT!!!
It really was a shame how MSM wanted to spin this story a certain way BEFORE the event was concluded.
Here's the round-up of propaganda coverage . . .
TKC FUN FACT: ALL OF THESE STORIES WERE FILED BEFORE THE EVENT CONCLUDED @ MIDNIGHT!!!
Newspaper: Youths end summer with a celebration at mayor’s Rock the Block street party
Fox4: Some KC community members say mayor’s Rock the Block event is what they needed
KSHB: 'Rock the Block' rocks Union Station
Now . . .
HERE'S FIRST WORD OF THE PROBLEMS OUTSIDE OF THE EVENT THAT KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WARNED AGAINST!!!
"They're having a lot of problems down there right now . . .Fights are breaking out and the police have arrested at least one kid with a gun. Tac teams are everywhere and they are closing the streets down . . . The police helicopter is up also."
THIS STORY IS CONFIRMED . . . ONE GUN ARREST NEAR THE UNION STATION EVENT LAST NIGHT!!!
More . . .
"Fights are supposedly breaking out in Crown Center too and there are groups of 500-1k kids running everywhere . . ."
This detail is important. Why?
PROPERTY DAMAGE FROM SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS AND BIZ IS EXACTLY WHAT KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WARNED MAYOR SLY WOULD OCCUR!!! SADLY, HE DIDN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO LISTENING TO THIS COMMUNITY CONCERN!!!
From the opposite end of the spectrum . . .
Here's video and commentary from the event from our pals @ IBWC KC
Check their web page for their take and community citizen media report on the event. As always, these guys do a great job of sharing their perspective with on the scene video.
And so . . .
KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS CONFIRM THAT KANSAS CITY TOP ECHELON INSIDER WORD WAS CORRECT AND THIS EVENT WAS A BIT DANGEROUS BUT THANKFULLY SECURED AS WELL AS POSSIBLE BY KCPD!!!
In fairness, no this wasn't a local Ferguson . . . But AROUND AND AFTER MIDNIGHT the party wasn't the cake walk and family fun parade that MSM attempts to spin on behalf of the embattled Mayor Sly James.
Last word to the main AWESOME tipsters on this story . . .
"All in all ... The event went smooth but it was just the outside crowds that acted out of line."
In the end, we're glad nobody was hurt but in the aftermath what Kansas City news aficionados can see clearly is stubbornness from the MAYOR, just a bit of media complicity in delivering happy news and only KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS AND AWESOME TIPSTERS helping to share the real deal and their perspective on life in Kansas City.
