Once again Kansas City stands at the precipice of a devastating political battle over law enforcement funding amid turbulent times that have claimed the lives of police nationwide and locally.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WARN OF AN EPIC FUNDING FIGHT TARGETING MAYOR SLY'S CUTS AND TINKERING WITH THE POLICE BUDGET IN THE AFTERMATH OF A DEADLY YEAR FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!
A bit of background . . .
At the outset of this year police feared that 100 positions would be cut.
Mayor Sly James touted "tough choices" throughout the budget process . . .
The KCPD Chief did his best to argue against staff reductions and then explain his strategy of coping with budget trimming: Reducing positions while maintaining service
The public continued to complain and Mayor Sly's answers focused more on wordplay and not a realistic view of police funding and its consequences . . .
And then . . .
A TRAGIC SPIKE IN DEADLY VIOLENCE AGAINST COPS NECESSITATED A POLICE POLICY CHANGE THAT COULD BUST KANSAS CITY'S BUDGET!!!
KCPD: Officers will respond to every call in pairs following shooting in Baton Rouge
Now here's the EXCLUSIVE part and a quote from AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS . . .
"TKC, just wanted to let you know that the KCPD decision to pair up officers is literally breaking the bank. They wanted to dump it almost immediately because the staffing was nearly impossible but then Capt. Melton was killed in KCK which made the local threat of shootings targeting police even more pronounced . . . There's simply no way KCPD is going to get through this without some MAJOR funding readjustments. A couple of council members are already working on it and they plan on skewing Sly and his cronies and even the Chief for their work pushing police cuts at one of the worst times in history to take money away from local law enforcement. FYI."
Remember that the Baton Rouge cop killer and the local standoff and ongoing investigation in to his Kansas City ties evoked a massive response from police on Sunday . . .
And then . . .
The AWESOME TKC TIPSTER is correct . . . In addition to culture war carnage created by racist domestic terrorists . . . There's also increasing local danger and higher crime stats on both sides of the state line:

Accordingly . . .
MAYOR SLY AND HIS CHEERLEADERS PUSHING POLICE CUTS WHILE COPS ALL OVER THE NATION ARE UNDER FIRE HAS BEEN A TRAGIC MISCALCULATION AND NOW INSIDERS ARE LOOKING TO EXACT A POLITICAL PRICE!!!
As we enter into election season and the BLOODY SUMMER OF 2016 continues . . . Look for anybody advocating cuts against KCPD to face quite a bit of pushback.
