TKC MUST READ: OFFICIAL KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST STATEMENT DEMANDS DISMISSAL OF POLICE OFFICER AFTER 'GOOD SHOOT' FACEBOOK COMMENT & INVOKES THE 'BLACK LIVES MATTER' MOVEMENT!!!
More word on this controversy that continues to resonate on social media today . . .
Statement on the Donald Ebert controversy by Ida B. Wells Coalition:
Mr. Ebert’s appalling language cheering on the death of an Terence Crutcher, an innocent human being gunned down in Tulsa, OK by those who only saw a “bad dude” when he did nothing more than try to fix his stalled car – and the subsequent petty attempts to defend his post with some statement that his opinion does not warrant anyone giving him theirs – illustrates more than any of us can how much of a threat police officers can be towards the Black community. In particular it tells an African American that Black lives do NOT matter to Mr. Ebert and we should not trust his judgement when having to deal with those in the Black community or any community of color. Mr. Ebert has shown himself to be a liability to Kansas City and needs to be removed from our police force immediately.
