CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY POLITICAL THEATER AMID DRIVE-BY SPIKE DEBATE BETWIXT MAYOR SLY VS. KCPD CHIEF!!!



Kansas City Mayor Sly has been mostly focused on providing corporate tax breaks whilst the KCPD Chief seems far more concerned with calling out his colleagues and accusing fellow police of bullying and racism . . . In the midst of public frustration with both of these public officials . . . This "debate" story magically appeared. You decide:

KCTV5: KCPD Chief Forté, Mayor James square off during police board meeting

Deets . . .

Mayor James brought up an increase in drive-by shootings and asked what the strategy was in place to combat it.

"A lot of these things are multi-factorial,” Mayor James said. “And the question still remains, what strategies are being employed? That's a legitimate question and it's one that still hasn't been answered and even if we had more people.”

KCPD Chief Forté said lighting and trash also are issues, but added that it’s also a matter of staffing.

“We're making some progress and we're trending in the right area, and I understand his frustration, but I'm frustrated also. You have to give me some more resources if he wants to do some things,” Chief Forté said.

Mayor James wasn’t convinced the blame needed to be on the city.

“If it’s only to sit around and blame the city for every damn problem that shows up, then I can do that in my office,” Mayor James said . . .

To wit . . .

BRAVO TO BOTH OF THESE KANSAS CITY PUBLIC OFFICIALS FOR PUTTING ON A GREAT SHOW AFTER ONE OF THE BLOODIEST YEARS IN RECENT KANSAS CITY HISTORY AND IN THE MIDST OF A DEBATE ABOUT MORE TAXES AND THE BUDGET!!!

IF we take this public slap fight at face value (we don't) . . .

IS MAYOR SLY GETTING READY TO JETTISON THE KCPD CHIEF TO SAVE HIS DECLINING POPULARITY BEFORE THE GO BOND VOTE???

You decide . . .

This is a debate that needs to happen.

But I don't know why the mayor is bitching about no strategy.

What happened to his Citizens Task Force Against Violence? The only solution they came up with was to outlaw guns.

Sly and Forte slapped each other on the back and laughed back stage at the conclusion.

I see the Amos and Andy show is back.

If nothing else this should serve as a great example as to why KC should never be in control of KCPD.

I don't know how you even strategize to stop drive-by shootings. Random and unpredictable. Maybe start selling kevlar siding.

It all starts at the top.

When bow tie crime is running rampant "behind these wall$" on the 12th floor it's going to rear it's ugly head at the street level in more hideous ways.

They can't shave. Their appearance is required in order to be an associate member of BLM.

They all laugh behind closed doors after a dog and pony show. The only people not laughing are the ones paying for the circus acts to continue as planned.

The unshaven look is a statement. It's called screw you, we can do as we please. And it pleases us to look like two successful clown school grads. And apparently get away with whatever expensive and useless acts their benefit-actors can convince.

Nig slap bitch fight. Hope neither wins.

The mayor is the one who had the big committee investigating crime in the city. Seems to me a way to deal with drive-by s should have come out of that. Of course, if you'll remember, there were no police on the committee.

Gimme, seriously, gimme a fuckin break.

The noblesse oblige hopes of white liberals who prayed to the secular Gods of the Progressive Narrative, was that, if Americans would just elect blacks to positions like, Mayor and Police Chief (Not to mention President.) that the outrageous disproportionate criminality that is part and parcel of areas, neighborhoods and cities with large black populations would be mitigates in a flurry of Kumbaya, rainbow, inclusion and diversity. What a joke.

The most salient result of these elections to public office of unqualified and unremarkable black people to "Peter Principle" positions where they flounder like a carp outta water, is the "Ferguson Effect". Pulling back from enforcing the law, because it is "Racist" gave thugs carte blanche to enforce their own laws in neighborhoods, where now, if cops show up, they are threatened not only by physical violence while enforcing the law, but, are acutely aware, that ANY, ANY accusation of racism towards cops will be dealt with in a "Guilty until proven innocent" Star Chamber court of public opinion, in the press and maybe, in actual court, where they can serve time at some point with the fuckin altar boys they already arrested.

All the cops in the world and all the black mayors and black police chiefs can, and will do NOTHING. They can't. They are crippled by the politically correct edicts proffered up every day by Progressive/Fascist fucks in the media, in politics, in colleges and in the entertainment industry, who, are ONLY interested in money, sinecure, power and influence violently arrogated from the bodies of the dead.

African American Culture is violence based. If it was food, it would be a stale, stiff, 60 year old chocolate cake that was overcooked to begin with. Sprinkle in some misogyny, indolence and a thick, heavy layer of the icing of entitlement to top off this cake. The only thing jumping out of this cake, will be a thug with a gun and criminal intent.

the mayor should take action, imho.

The result of all this is both Sly and the chief will end up eating the icing on the cake while preparing to go on to high paying cushy jobs. Politicians after life's are worth a fortune. After the frosting is finished running down their beards, and then they can look forward to no more partying with the peasants.

Trump needs to have troops ready to come in and takeover when summer hits.


Sly can do his selfies and photo ops then without interference from Chief or rest of our citizens yelling DO SOMETHING! every single day.

Step right up for the double clown show!! Mayor Bullhorn and Chief Tweeter! Comedy or tragedy?? You decide!

Citizen said...

Staff the Police Dept Mr Mayor and stop underfunding the Police Dept.

Anonymous said...

KCPD is a poor excuse for a Police Department

Anonymous said...


Mayor Bullhorn needs to be blamed on this. He's out with a bullhorn organizing protests on something he can't change and trying to divide the city. He cuts fire and police, and then he sits back and says the blame shouldn't be on the city??

Yes the blame is on the city!! Give the cops and fire dept what they need and stop either lining your pockets or wasting money which ever the case is.

Personally I think Mayor Bullhorn is unqualified.

Interesting how we continually put blacks in charge of a black problem and nothing changes?

Eastside KC isn't that big. It isn't the Southside.

You could probably reduce those drivebys by a lot if you stationed 25 unmarked dark colored cruisers to sit on 'problem blocks' between 8pm and 6am on fridays and saturdays.

Literally draw up a grid view of the eastside and place each cruiser in it's own 3 or 4 block radius.

Anonymous said...

Southside of Chicago that is.

And Hyperblogal, I don't know why you would say a drive by is Random. They aren't random at all, they are targeted.

You can probably just look at a map of the eastside 2016 driveby shootings and guess where the 2017 driveby shootings will be....nightlife areas such as westport and the surrounding areas...eastside drug corridors along between 55th street and 59th street, east of 71...31st street east of prospect...the public housing near the Jazz District...the areas around Budd Park, etc.

It isn't like people are catching a bullet outside of Pembroke Hill or Axois in Brookside.

When you figure this out, be sure to tell Chicago.

This is NOT a Kansas City problem. This is a national gang problem.

Citizen said...

311 your city needs more Police sign up now to help out and contribute.

Anonymous said...

So byron, wouldn't it follow that you set cruisers up in neighborhoods with extensive gang activity? Ones that are engaged in active gang wars?

I know Im just talking with Tonys hand puppet but you get the idea.

We don't need to throw money at local police so they can piss it away on political interest and conjured up horseshit programs. We need a flack vested Federal task force to come in and sweep the streets with these fucking boons.
Let the libtard pussies running these cities sweep up the bodies.

We would never put up with this shit from a foreign entity yet we pussy foot around with these air wasting punks like we should ever have an ounce of compassion towards the behavior. Eradicate and purge and lets be done with it before there is civil war.

More resources? Wasnt the 2010 slush fund renewal enough? Public Safety tax was supposed to provide resources, tools, new buildings, etc. Where did the money go? Grifters who thought the tax was to fund things like videotaping the City tear down a building with asbestos dust flying in the air because City Architect was too afraid or clueless to say anything? Give me a break. You got everything the City promised and youre still making excuses...now its trash. Grow up, Forte!

East side which is covered by East Patrol...nearly 50 share miles, has maybe 9 officers at any given time that would be capable of handling calls, running patrol, etc. There is literally no one available to station anywhere.
