TKC READERS: GO BEYOND BLACK & WHITE IN KANSAS CITY POLICE TOP COP DEBATE!!!



Yet another racial crisis confronts Kansas City as behind the scenes lobbying looks to make this debate all about demographics instead of more pressing community concerns.

To wit, before the big meetup tomorrow, we wanted to throw out a few differences beyond mere culture war concerns.

From left to right . . .

Major Rick Smith - Wants to put more cops on streets, has a wealth of KCPD experience at all levels, seems to have support of rank & file.

Norman, Okla., Police Chief Keith Humphrey - Offers a fresh perspective, focused on community outreach, touts data-drive approach to crime fighting and traffic enforcement.

Late in the game criticisms -

Amateur Catholic liberation theologians are touting a VERY LOOSE connection to the Bishop Finn scandal against Smith that really reflects more on the former local cleric's bad judgement -- It's a hack hit-job but a classic bit of Kansas City backstabbing that always comes up.

And, of course, Chief Humphrey commands a force that is less than 1/5th the size of KCMO which has become a major criticism against his candidacy from local insiders.

Finally . . .

Maj. Smith has excelled at developing personal connections within the Dept. & community while Chief Humphrey has talked about his upcoming effort to reach out to local leaders if he gets the job.

The rest is up to you as TKC EXCLUSIVELY REPORTS THAT RANK & FILE POLICE UNION LEADERS ARE ALREADY MEETING BEHIND THE SCENES to support Maj. Smith whilst some urban core activists have organized a police corruption and brutality smear campaign against the front runner KCPD leader.

Developing . . .

They should have went with the female candidate. We lost her to a bigger and better department.

Can we outsource this one to China as well?

Nobody cares now because both candidates suck. Is there any way to start this over and hire a real police chief?

just what KC needs -- yet ANOTHER Affirmative Action hire

Here is a better issue for you TK: Why do we only get one lousy community meeting? Seems like a decision this important warrants more time and investigation.

+1 Sly's chief will continue to screw over Kansas City.

Crazy Clown said...

Yup', that's what KCMO needs, a full fledged Enice from the dukes of hazard as a police chief ???????????????

As I remember & recall Enice couldn't find his car keys for the Hazard county squad car 1/2 the time !!!!!

I have been away from the department for several years, so maybe someone on here can answer this question. Isn't Smith the commander described in this article:

http://www.kctv5.com/story/15101174/clergy-sex-abuse-victims-seek-answers?autostart=true

If so, he has shown himself to be completely incompetent. I remember when this happened thinking to myself if a patrol officer had done this they would be fired. How can you be that high up in command and HBO a child porn case over the phone, have the photo you said was not porn help convict someone in court, and years later get offered the job as the departments top cop?

KCPD, and this city by extension, are screwed either way. I would not hire that Officer Doofy looking motherfucker either.

If you had been involved in any sort of way during that investigation you would know that Smith played a very strong roll against he church. The information he received from the church wasn't true and he testified at least twice during grand juries. I'm pretty sure you either Steve Bean or someone just like that pussy. People like you never helped anyone, but sat behind keyboards and desks your whole lives.

Didn't Elvice have a twin named Enice?

Hey 6:38....I actually spent my full 10 years on the KCPD in the streets, never on a desk job. Most of it in CPD. And no, I was not involved in the investigation. It doesn't take a genius to know you don't handle a child porn case over the phone. He should have known better, but I guess he was just to lazy to get out from behind HIS desk or send an officer out to investigate. Either he is incompetent, or he was trying to cover it up. Retards like you are why KCPD is a fucking laughing stock, you stupid cunt. Glad I am out. Enjoy sucking the cock of whomever is the next chief. That is the only thing bitches like you are good for.

Rick Smith will be a breath of fresh air to the City. Although KCPD is state-controlled, it must work closely with the City for funding. He will do a great job building those relationships. I think the Board made the right choice between the two finalists. God Speed to you, Rick!
