TKC Told You So: Even Kansas City Dead Tree Media Seyz Feds Need To Take Over For Exec Frank White At Jackson County Jail

We've been talking about the ongoing jail crisis for more than a month and TV news has featured most of the breaking coverage:

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY HERE IS THAT TEAM FRANK WHITE ISN'T CONVINCING THE NEWSPAPER DECISION MAKERS WHO DON'T ARE ABOUT HIS BASEBALL LEGACY!!!

More the the point . . . This is a peek at power brokers getting sick of Exec Frank White and his laid back style of management. Sadly, the newspaper can only mention this by way of subtext and ineffectual verbiage wherein our blog community already knows the deal . . . You decide . . .

Editorial: Federal intervention may be needed at Jackson County jail

An inmate, perhaps mentally ill, died in the Mississippi County Jail last Friday after a fight in the facility. The incident prompted Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley to seek suspension of the sheriff while the death is under investigation. A federal judge said yes.

Frank White will just keep adding more administrators to his staff to deal with this because the nine or ten he has got already aren't enough. How many more staff could the county jail have if the county excutive didn't need to hire so many hundred thousand dollar a year chiefs and assistant chiefs?

While the feds are in town, they should get nice extended-stay hotel rooms and spend a few months in the Jackson County courthouse an.d then ease over to the circus at 12th and Oak.
The residents of KCMO would certainly be forever grateful and the entire region would get a real boost from having KCMO and JaCo run like governing jurisdictions instead of gravy trains for insiders, family and friends, and assorted grifters and hangers-on.
The endless arrogance and incompetence is certainly not being addressed locally

Does this mean the Star is going to stop getting on their knees and blowing Frank?

Frank and Caleb only think people being raped in their jail is a problem because it's been reported and is now public knowledge how fucked up the jail is. They could care less about people getting hurt or even killed. They only give a shit about their images.

When you pick a celebrity to run your government what do you expect? Why did the voters in Jackass County think being a baseball player qualified Frank White to be their county ex?

7:22 Don't blame the voters. Legislators gave this job to White on a silver platter.

What's the surprise? The Star thinks the Feds should take over pretty much everything. If the Star is right this time, it's an accident.

There is no sense in having local government, city or county, when the Federal government is constantly coming in over local issues and being forced to govern. Drain the swamp and find folks who can actually accomplish something positive.

Frank IS in over his head and these deaths and rapes fall on his head. Sadly, at the courthouse he doesn't seem engaged on any issue outside of cutting ribbons and talking himself up.

Frank is all about Frank and he has surrounded himself with people who are just the same.
