Kansas City Police Union 'Community Outreach' Calls Out Protesting Footballer

Community outreach by way of echoing Prez Trump's divisive statements . . . Here's a second look at this emboldened KCPD faction flexing and engaging in political culture war rhetoric now that one of their own is Chief.

While we respect police and support the rank & file . . . This bold statement might garner support among Northland suburbanites but doesn't really seem inclusive or like an honest invitation. Like it or not, it's yet another line in the sand offered by authorities . . . Which is cool . . . TKC doesn't make a habit of arguing with people who have guns. But it's dishonest to say this is anything but a rhetorical ploy. You decide:

KC FOP invites Chiefs Marcus Peters to help with new community program

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police is asking Chiefs players to get off their knees and take action by helping out with a community program. This comes after more than 100 NFL players protested for racial injustices over the weekend. "For me, protest has to mean something.

Why does that guy look so sad? He doesn't have to worry about getting beat up by the cops.

Bullshit.

It's the violence that the police are commiting against the black community that the protest is about.

In their eyes you're the enemy, dummy.

BYRON You are a F**KING LIAR More white people are killed by police then blacks.

Black people are killing police officers not the other way around.

Blacks are the violent ones in this country. The police have busted their ass to try and work with black people and blacks are not working together with them or anyone else. Ferguson's police chief was a good example of that, and it took one fat ass thug and his liar friend to ruin that whole town the police tried so hard to bring together and get everyone involved in something in the community.

YOU are the reason those cop in TX were killed and YOU are the reason we can't watch football in peace, YOU are the reason this country is so divided. YOU are nothing but SCUM!

Hey. At least the police are trying to do something other than balloon releases, candle light vigils, cheap RIP t-shirts and rioting.

Der Funkhouser cited "violence that the police are committing against the black community". Everyone take a drink.

80 percent of the prisons in this country are filled up with black people and they are only 12 percent of our country.

These form of people don't know how to act or behave. we made the mistake of having them come over as slave labor.

Be mistake! We are paying for that 100 times over for a little bit of free labor at the time.

I bet they were crappy workers back then, why did you need the slave master, to get them off their asses to friggin work!

I don’t think Marcus peters could read his invite to join the police in helping with his so called plight, someone needs to tell him! Lmao!

Good luck with that. I doubt Marcus Peters could even express what his protest is about. He simply does it because his progressive master's told him to.

Brad Lemon is a good guy and the FOP mean well -- and it is not a bad idea for Peters to work with kids, BUT...

It is disingenuous for the FOP to pretend that the situation that the athletes are protesting against is not the overuse of force -- especially deadly force -- against citizens -- especially minority men. The failure of Law Enforcement to recognize and accept that force overuse is a Law Enforcement problem means that it can NEVER have a solution that does not involve confrontation.

Working with kids is great -- but the problem at issue is NOT gradeschoolers fighting on the playground. It is police officers shooting unarmed black men and boys -- with no criminal repercussions and sometimes (thanks to their local FOP) with no other disciplinary actions.

KC cops are unusually professional and that professionalism has mitigated the overuse of force. But, until Brad is willing to say out loud that a cop who shoots an unarmed, fleeing suspect in the back needs to go to prison, he has no right to criticize those who kneel to protest that criminal behavior.

Which Kansas City officer did that Phil?

Wow phil, you've had way too many martinis tonight. maybe you should stop drinking and get back to that AA meeting you've been missing. my god man, who the hell are you kidding here, 4 or 5 bad shoots in one year for the entire country does not equate to mass killings of blacks. do some research for a change instead of watching cnn or msnbc or whatever progressive tv news you've been watching and you'll find out that 5 times as many whites get shot as your poor blacks you seem hell bent on saving and blaming all cops (whitey) for. minus 4 or 5 everyone one of those idiots that got shot or beat probably deserved it. unless you were there shut the hell up!

Marcus peters and byron should volunteer to help the blacks but then all they want to do is bitch and protest but not actually do anything.

I just know that the FOP members will stop working for all that money at the stadiums - given their integrity, scruples and all.
