Kansas City Uber Offers July 4th Discount Code Amid PR Campaign After Rape Lawsuit



Here's a Kansas City July 4th "deal" that deserves a bit critical examination that local news isn't doing in the the headlines of their PR campaign reports . . .

Here's the headline about a deal in partnership with a law firm . . .

Uber vouchers give free, safe 4th of July rides: The vouchers are split up into 500 codes each worth $10, one per user. The site says the codes are good between 5 p.m. and midnight July 4. The codes are only good for the area immediately around the River Market.

That sounds sweet . . .

Now here's another recent perspective on ride-share tech in this cowtown . . .

The Verge: Uber was warned about driver’s violent past before he raped a passenger, new lawsuit alleges

To be fair, the suspect is innocent until proven guilty and a lot of people use Uber safely every day . . . But the PR promo delivered without question by local newsies is a lot nicer than a billion dollar global corporation deserves and Kansas City denizens deserve both sides of the story.

You decide . . .

If I was Uber, I would give a discount to any really hot young slut.

UBER driver rapes passenger!

Legal defense team contends he was simply emulating the behavior of Mayor James and some Council members toward KCMO taxpayers.

I got butt screwed by a yellow cab driver my first trip to KC. From downtown to the airport was a 50 mile hour long drive and cost me the ranch. By the time I figured out the whole damn town was like that it was too late.
