Show-Me Mayor Sly Outplayed By Guv Greitens Amid Kansas City Top Cop Pick?!?!



Credit to some of the constant denizens of our blog community who check in throughout the day yet still claim that they don't enjoy the companionship, wit and intellectualism of this blog community.

Anyhoo . . .

With a bit of stupid racism edited out, here's a pretty insightful take on a bit of political gamesmanship by the Guv celebrated by locals in the choice for the new Chief . . .

"James and others suspect killings in Kansas City continue to have much to do with decades-old, entrenched racism, poverty, the lack of education and jobs in the urban core" -- Everything he has ignored his entire time in office, I love the fact that he played the racism card first thing, standard language to blame . . . Poverty is only going to get worse when he bankrupts the city. What can you say about kcmo school district, not enough time or room to write about that catastrophe. That leaves jobs in the hood, really, who wants to own a business in the hood where you get robbed, broken into on a weekly basis no business can afford the sky high insurance costs of operating . . .???"

Like it or not, a state-appointed local board is the reality of our police governance . . . And most people who want to change that are either lying or too trusting to understand that "local" control is really just about City Hall inevitably garnering access and more control over police pensions.

You decide . . .

Sly's like the guy who gets to play the king at the Renaissance Festival and after a while begins to think he's actually royalty.
As long as Sly stays in the amateur little terrarium of KCMO politics, he's found he can threaten, cajole, and pay to get his way.
But once he tries bigger ponds with much bigger frogs, things don't go so well.
He very visibly backed Hillary in the presidential race lobbying to get a job in her administration and ended up burning lots of bridges to Washington. In fact, he sold out the best interests of KCMO for his own personal ambition.
Now he's gone head-to-head with the Greitens administration and the Missouri legislature and has gotten his butt handed to him every time.
Better stick to the shallow end of the pool.

Not a surprise, blacks have consistently proven they cannot govern or manage, regardless of what level of political office.

Anytime Sly loses, Kansas City wins. Simple as that.

James new talking point is that the police cannot do anything about the homicide rate. Typical response from those who fail - it was not my fault. Like a previous poster said you cannot have prosperity in crime ridden neighborhoods. So if that is the case and if James says you will always have crime until you have prosperity what he is saying is just give up on the inner city and move on to convention hotels, streetcar expansion, a new airport and whatever shiny new thing grabs his attention.

People can't commit crimes if they are tried and locked up. Sadly this doesn't occur in Jackson County. If the county prosecutor and judges were held accountable then things would be better. Let the numbers speak for themselves.

It just keeps getting worse. Unincorporate KC, cut off the entitlements, donate teh military gear to the suburban police agencies and lets get the war done and over with.

Sly has seemed to forget that this isn't a strong mayor city. Troy has to be on his way out too. Sly doesn't know how to work with people, only how to walk all over them. He got smacked down on this issue. He went all in with Canady on this.

Why wouldn't Greitens outplay Sly? He is a lot smarter than Sly, who is a fat fucking idiot.

"James and others suspect killings in Kansas City continue to have much to do with decades-old, entrenched racism, poverty, the lack of education and jobs in the urban core."

Though these things do explain a lot of the crime, they do not explain the killing.

When poor whites, of which I am one, fight each other it is still with our fists, & not guns, or even knives.

I don't presume to know why there is a difference, but I am certain that it's not genetics, but cultural.

It's time for black leaders to stop focusing so much on what white people are doing to them, & time to focus on what they are doing to each other.

1:53, you admit you don't know why, and yet somehow you are certain? Total ignorance = total certainty? Like they say, the less knowledge a person has, the stronger his opinion.

Sly James is a fat silver back slope. Major Smith may not be perfect, but he is still a way better choice than an outsider who would have been chosen solely by the color of his skin.
