TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDER: JACKSON COUNTY JAIL INMATE DEAD AT TRUMAN MED!!!



We're still sorting out the deets of this report but it's too important not to put on blast early this morning . . .

TKC FIRST WORD: AN INMATE HAS DIED IN JACKSON COUNTY JAIL CUSTODY!!!

The death happened early this morning after midnight according to our blog community. UPDATE: The inmate is now "dead at Truman" and was in custody of jail officials at the time of his demise.

The fallout so far as things get worse for the County . . .

This latest development makes thing a lot worse for EXEC Frank White who is NOW FIGHTING WITH THE LEGISLATURE IN OPEN SESSION.

A quote on the Courthouse fight and political angle of this mess from insiders:

"The chaos continues to unfold at the county, at the July 10th meeting of the Legislature -- Dan Tarwater went on the record and seemed to imply that the situation at the jail is out of control, and Exec Frank White is seen by insiders as SO INCOMPETENT that he cant be trusted to fix anything . . . It's unprecedented that Tarwater proposed the county sheriff TAKE OVER THE JAIL FROM FRANK!!!"

It wasn't just Dan Tarwater but also fellow Democratic legislators Scott Burnett and Crystal Williams who are piling on . . .

Meanwhile, Exec Frank White's callous dismissal of the jail crisis as "old news" won't hold up given the recent spate of lawsuits and today's tragedy.

Developing . . .

Doubt if a white Republican brushing off someone's rape as "old news" would have gotten away with that without at least the local media crying out for his resignation. Hell no. It probably would have made national news. But in Frank's case, The Star doesn't even mention it.

You know what's old news? Frank White's baseball career. But because he was a star baseball player 30 years ago the voters in Jackass County put him in charge. The Royals were so right about not letting this guy manage their baseball team.

The Jackson County jail has been problematic for years and years. This situation is not on Frank White. There have been any number of rapes and sexual assaults there for the past 20 years. No young man or woman is safe if they are incarcerated. There are people screaming for mercy all night long. Sorry folks, that is the reality.

Well, we all know the best way to avoid that mess - Don't check in.

I like your comment 6:20 AM but tend to agree with 6:27 Am

This problem has been there long before Frank White became a politician. I thought they were looking into the problem and investigating the jail?

I'm a firm believer that problems need addressed from top down some people need to get fired or asked to step down and take another city job.

6:27 AM Frank took the job and his job is make things better not worse. He may have inherit a mess, but it's only getting to be a bigger mess on his watch.

"We're still sorting out the deets of this report" = "we're still waiting for reputable news organizations to report verified facts."

I'm sure Scoop Botello is busy switching between local news TV shows as we speak.

Probably another worthless negro we don't need to feed anymore, if true. But Tony will fall for anything.

If you can't do the time.... don't do the crime.

7:24... If you can't competently do the job, resign. Frank has got to go. And, by the way, most of the people in the county jail are awaiting trial. You know, innocent until proven guilty. And the fact the county can't competently run a jail is costing taxpayers a fortune in lawsuits and consultants.

What's with the TKC hate creeping into the comments over the last couple of weeks? He's a blogger, or a more apt comparo would be like the Drudgereport of KC. He's not a field reporter, investigative journo, or out on the Council circuit. He aggregates news stories that focus on KC. We as readers could certainly go out to the same relevant news sites and sort through their various puff-pieces and obtrusive ads, but I for one prefer the basic text-based format of TKC, and the ability to shout into the void with relatively anonymous comments. And, unfortunately, anonymous comments are the only way non-politically correct opinions can truly be freely expressed in a public forum at this time. Specifically all of the various commenters (including me) who regularly voice displeasure at the state of the ghetto culture in this city. Don't tell me you would feel comfortable stating those opinions, in the same pedestrian language, at the JC Nichols fountain. You would be physically attacked by the utes, be verbally assaulted by the JOCO trophies you find it oh so passe to express opinions that their progressive overlord's disagree with, and not a person (who may even agree with you) would really have the ability to help.

Anyone trying to spin hat the "jail has always been this way" are full of it. People haven't been dying monthly in the jail before. Rapes where imamates were given keys by staff that were still to this day NEVER Disciplined never occurred before. Over 200 feds crawling through the place never occurred before. And finally, jail overcrowding under the last 8 years was when the population reached 700, these guys cant keep it under 900. So yes, its time for Frank to resign.

Frank is an asshole.

Why can't all the inmates just smoke their weed and mellow out and sit in their rooms talking on their cell phones. The jailers smuggle in whatever the prisoners want.

Just read the Star story. Love that Frank is spending so much money on PR and the paper could not get a hold of any of his spokesmenm

I agree its time for Frank to go, Anyone know if the people in charge of that jail are primarily black? I bet they are so Frank can't blame the problem on whitey.

10:48 YOU MEAN LIKE SHERIFF JOE DOWN IN ARIZONA WHO COST HIS COUNTY MILLION$ IN LAWSUITS. GENIUS.

He should resign so he can go work for Sly's new job position for combating crime

His previous work record and ethic, along with his smiling Bojangles demear, makes him perfectly qualified for working under Sly.

Now about that tie Frank. Ever consider a bow-tie? How's your dance step?

This is incredibly frusturating. As a right-wing, libertarian, constitutionalist, Republican I find the administration of the nations county jail system, and Jackson County in particular to be extremely disturbing. There is no reason that federal penitentiaries and state prisons are more desirable than county jails. Most folks held in county jail are awaiting trial, and are presumably innocent people. The worst of the punishment should not occur before trial. This undermines the application of justice. Either segregate convicts from those awaiting trial, and treat them to better accomodations and security, or improve the conditions of the entire jail.

Frank White, another person in office who has no business being in any political office.

What hasn't gotten out yet is how corrupt Frank is, taking free trips and gifts from county contractors. Whatever you may think is going on over here, it is WAY worse.

I'm a liberal Democrat and agree wholeheartedly with you. Frank White is a disgrace.

Give them all and OBAMA PHONE. THAT WILL CALM THEM DOWN. THEY WILL TO BUSY TEXTING TO START ANY TROUBLE. .DON'T CALL US WE'LL CALL YOU.

Maybe THIS will get county management to stop bullying staff who are doing their jobs. They should put their energy on the jail where it belongs.

Frank has fallen down on the job. He can't get it done. Time to start thinking about options.
