PETTY KANSAS CITY POLITICS BEHIND 'MOTHERS IN CHARGE' SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER!?!?!
Participants in a politically active local anti-crime group are going after a former volunteer and the latest controversy once again signals the start of the silly election season in Kansas City.
Here's the headline . . .
Fox4: Kansas City community activist accused of stealing from anti-crime nonprofit Mothers In Charge
Read the whole thing but here are the highlights . . .
- This "exclusive" news is over a measly 500 bucks.
- The dispute involves Christmas gift card purchases and whether or not they were approved . . . SCINTILLATING!!!
- The story notes that Bryan Dial, Jr. and "Mothers In Charge" Founder Rosilyn Temple were formerly friends and Mr. Dial was part of an employment dispute with the Ad Hoc Group Against Crime - The organization that launch "Mothers In Charge" . . .
Remember that Mr. Dial was formerly a City Council candidate who did pretty well in his first try at office and could be planning another run . . . Via Facebook, Mr. Dial references political backstabbing at the root of this story. The comment he publicly shared with friends, of which TKC is one, a few hours before this latest story went live . . .
"The local politics that have been played with me are disgusting... I don't know that I've ever experienced such betrayal"
We encouraged him to stand up to the petty allegations . . . Reality: Mr. Dial made the wrong move by not talking to the Fox4 reporter and he should have requested a sit-down interview. He's kind of a soft spoken guy and, fact is, nobody likes getting ambushed by a camera crew.
For the record, Mr. Dial has stepped away from the Ad Hoc crowd, seen the light and redirected his efforts toward his church and more education-based community mentoring. The guy has spent countless hours helping children, volunteering and working within his community. Bryan Dial, Jr. is one of the good guys and this hit piece hatched by the Mothers in Charge gang speaks to their level of duplicity when confronting controversy. Remember that Rosilyn Temple has been one of the loudest anti-gun advocates in the urban core and helped put push the 2nd Amendment crackdowns championed by Mayor Sly James.
To be fair, I don't know and don't care about Christmas gift-card controversy.
Here's what's easy to understand . . .
MOTHERS IN CHARGE IS ABOUT POLITICS NOT CRIME-PREVENTION!!! ANY HELP THEY MIGHT PROVIDE VICTIMS OF CRIME IS QUICKLY CASHED IN FOR POLITICAL CAPITAL!!! THIS LATEST HIT PIECE DEMONSTRATES THEY ARE MORE THAN WILLING TO ATTACK ANYONE WHO BREAKS FROM THEIR RANKS!!!
Worst of all . . . According to their web page they are funded by police i.e. taxpayers. So local residents are stuck paying for all of this political theater.
"The Kansas City chapter received generous funding from the Kansas City Missouri Police Department to move into its own office space and expand the scope of its programs and services. In November 2014, "KC Mothers In Charge" (KC MIC) appointed its inaugural Board of Directors and incorporated itself as nonprofit corporation in the State of Missouri. In May 2015, KC MIC received 501(c)(3) federal tax-exemption status."
And so, while Kansas City endures ANOTHER record breaking homicide uptick, it's important to note that this taxpayer funded group seems more concerned about gift cards and thwarting any perceived election time threat.
