TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY LAW ENFORCEMENT CONTROVERSY EMBROILING CHIEF FORTÉ CONTINUES AMID CURRENT PROPOSAL FOR EPIC KCPD DIVERSITY REALIGNMENT AGAINST 'EVIL' EXISTING POLICY!!!
Mainstream media is content to move past the FIRESTORM surrounding Kansas City's Chief of Police without much insight or analysis into the root of the controversy.
Thankfully, our blog community looks deeper into the debate in order to provide a more accurate view of the current sitch.
To wit . . .
CHECK OUT EXCLUSIVE OF VIDEO FEATURING MORE CONTROVERSIAL REMARKS FROM THE KCPD CHIEF AND HIS UPCOMING EFFORT TO CHANGE DEPARTMENT STANDARDS IN AN EPIC KANSAS CITY POLICE DIVERSITY OVERHAUL!!!
TKC TIPSTERS get first word always and this note preceded the video share . . .
"Two days before his Kansas City Star interview. He was at East Patrol for a prayer vigil for the 5 murdered Dallas officers."
Credit to the KICK-ASS TIPSTER what we're seeing from both critics and supporters of the Chief is an honest discussion of a HISTORIC KCPD DIVERSITY HIRING AND PROMOTION CHANGE UNDERWAY THAT HAS ESCAPED THE VIEW OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA but clearly has rank & file police frustrated. The comment regarding "unreasonable fear" is merely prelude and justification for significant policy shift.
Still, there's a lot here that has rank & file continuing to fume . . . And not just identifying current KCPD hiring policy as "evil" and calling for help to change it from the crowd.
Money quotes from the KCPD Chief in this clip following the domestic terror killing of two officers in Dallas:
"They keep talking about 'their goal is to go home' now we're talking about other people wanting to go home, too . . . "
"When you have problems in neighborhoods, you need diversity . . ."
"When we see outbursts we don't understand, it's bigger than a man or a woman. This thing is spiritual . . ."
Watch the clip and you decide . . .
What's clear, and what mainstream media is ignoring, is that this debate not only concerns a pattern of controversial remarks from the KCPD Chief but also an upcoming and dramatic policy shift -- Both of which have enraged the rank & file and have many local police fighting for department standards as well as concerns over safety.
