SHOCK!!! AFTER JACKSON COUNTY JAIL DEATH, REPORTED RAPE, ASSAULT, SMUGGLING & HAZARDOUS SEWAGE OVERFLOW: FRANK WHITE DENIES CRISIS!!!


In one of the most disappointing political rebuttals we've seen so far this year . . . A former Kansas City baseball legend absconds responsibility and doesn't provide any real leadership.

Checkit:

NBC Action News: Jackson County exec says jail isn't in crisis but problems will take years to fix

Deets:

“This is not going to be a quick fix; it took us a long time to get here,” said White

Last week, an independent auditor told the Jackson County Legislature that the Jackson County Detention Center is in a crisis because of staffing shortages that put jailers and inmates in danger. The County Executive has a different take on the status of the jail.

“Overall, I think the jail is in better shape today than it was 2 years ago,” White explained.

You decide . . .

Isn't that the first thing they tell you to do when you get into office is to always deny everything.

^^^ +1

Dave is 100% correct. Also, blame everything on your predecessor.

After awhile, I think people get tired of that.

What White fails to mention, cough, is that all of the deaths and rapes have occurred in the last 6-12 months. So the claim that things are "getting better" is a flat out lie by a politician looking to duck responsibility. Here's an idea, how about spend more time doing your fucking job then at the golf course! People are dying and this asshat is golfing.

Seriously, bean the jackoff with it next time his around. Maybe it will knock the arrogance out of that moron. There;s something seriously wrong with a guy who refuses to fix the human rights crisis at the jail because he doesnt want to look like anything was ever wrong in the first place.

The article says they are working hard to be accredited by 2020! Are you for real? 2020? A lot of golf games in those 3 years.

To heck with Brett, George f-in Clinton would look like Einstein compared to this brain trust. Honest question, is Frank slow?

Well, it works for bully bullhorn by denying there's a negroe murder problem then frank denying there's a negroe problem at the jail isn't a much of a stretch either

There have 2 deaths at the jail since February - the first was the lady left to die on the floor. I think her relatives are suing.

So the county hires an expert who cost how much? Six figures! This expert doesn't want to wait to finish writing an official report before meeting with county officials to warn them they've got a crisis. The legislators hold an emergency meeting. This expert tells them it's one of the worst jail situations in the whole nation.

Frank White has more important things to do than go to this meeting and now says the expert the county just paid more than a hundred thousand has got this all wrong. Fuck you Frank! Talk about arrogance. Being a second baseman thirty years taught you a lot about running a jail, did it?

Time for another emergency meeting county legislators. Who will step up and tell Frank he needs to go?

Congrats Frank. You've got the locks fixed on the doors and the sewer supposedly working. Kind of things that we ought to take for granted work in jail. You're a disgrace.

Anonymous said...

Holy shit. Frank spends a fortune on PR and then goes out and gives a dip shit interview like this. Easier to talk balls and strikes than about the human rights CRISIS you are responsible for.

First step in solving a problem is admitting you've got one. Jackson County, you've got a big problem.

I don't know which former Royal is pissing me off more, George Brett, the airport expert, or Frank White, the jail expert. At least Brett hasn't ran for public office. White is embarrassing himself each day he plays make-believe that he's county executive. I can't look at his baseball card any more. Great job crapping all over your legacy.

Sure makes you want to work at the Jackson County Jail when the guy in charge will deny the place is "in crisis" and won't admit that no one is safe in there: not the inmates, not the guards, not the people visiting.

Great baseball player, disaster as a politician. The voting public is smart enough to recognize the two are totally different. Time for someone to step up and run against Frank.

Crazy Clown said...

FACT :

Frank is a TYPICAL Dumbo'crat , lie & Deny , the same traits we all see in Mayor SLY JAMES,,,

Typical of their types !!!!

Really, running a jail will take years to fix. That seems odd. Even after two rounds of consultants and successful jails all over America, this is somehow a puzzle.

Anonymous said...

8:33 ^^^ And these cunsultants have cost us hundreds of thousands, and how has Frank White responded. He's kept one report a secret and basically whined "wrong" when the other says he's got a major crisis on his hands. Frank is just pulling shit out of his ass while trying to cover his ass.

These problems have been in the making for years and years. Frank White might be a problem, but it is unreasonable to blame the whole situation on him. This jail has been a hellhole for years. My recommendation? Stay out of trouble and don't go there unless you like violence, rape (no matter male or female), and filth.

Anonymous said...

9:30 ^^^ Frank is the BIG PROBLEM NOW when he won't admit there's a crisis that has only gotten worse on his watch. As for your just stay out of trouble line, I don't have that much faith in the KCPD that everyone being thrown in the Jackson County jail is guilty. People have been raped in there awaiting court dates for shoplifting. But apparently that's OK with you and Frank White, Mr. Stuff Happens In A Jail.

Checked out that Web page Frank was talking about. It's a joke right?

Talking about fixing lights and locks! Who would have thought those things would have been left unfixed in a jail?

Adding 12-hour shifts... That's supposed to be a good thing? Because who doesn't want to work extra long days in a smelly, dangerous place? That will help with recruiting more guards.

Hiring five new "managers"!!! Have you fired any of the old ones or you just adding more layers of management?

Finally, why not show us the progress on these consultant reports by putting them on the website?
