SHOCK!!! STILL NOT ENOUGH POLICE ON KANSAS CITY STREETS DESPITE RISING HOMICIDE 2017 COUNT!!!



A reminder about a litany of promises that have yet to be fulfilled from Mayor Sly, politicos and now the new top cop.

Checkit:

KCTV5: Shortage of Kansas City police officers remains concern among community as homicides rise

Money line and note for the future . . .

Two months ago, Mjr. Rick Smith, an officer with 29 years of service, was promoted to police chief.

His goal is to get Kansas City off the FBI’s list of 10 most dangerous cities.

KCTV5 News' requests were denied for an interview with Smith about the shortage of officers on the street.

He agreed to an interview at a community meeting but refused to answer questions concerning officers on the street because, in his words, he has “budget talks coming up.”

You decide . . .

Change is slow in KC but I have more confidence in him than Chief Twitter.

The Chief is a good smart man. The Chief has to rebuild the Patrol Staffing levels at a time when most folks do not desire to be involved in the chaos of policing. The Chief will do it because he cares and has the full inner knowledge of how K.C.P.D. Operates. Finally after a long time coming the citizens are going to get more Patrol Officers. This takes time and money and training. We didn't get in this shape overnight and it'll take time to get the train back on the track. God Bless the emergency services/corrections folks for having the courage to participate.

Chief Twitter. I like that.

I don't believe that it's a shortage of police. I believe that it's shortage of competent policing and these two things are inherently different. The police department has benefitted greatly from new police facilities, tools, weaponry, cars, crime lab and a host of other windfalls following the renewal of the 2010 Public Safety Sales Tax Vote. (But the voting public has a short memory) How the police have invested that money is the problem and we're seeing the consequences of irresponsible expenditures. For instance, how much of the money went to John Miles to build a community center at 27th Prospect? How much could have been saved by restoring the police facility at 27th Van Brunt rather than relocating it to 26th Prospect (in an area that it does not service)? The public does not know that the folks who live around the new facility are told that they cannot make reports of crime at that location. They must go to the location at Linwood & Troost, which is their service station.

When you play politics with public funding, this is the consequence. You want to blame somebody, blame the Third District Council people: Jermaine Reed, Quinton Lucas and Melba Curls. John Modest Miles also shares in a large part of the blame with his selfish promotion and focus on things the community doesn't need. He doesn't know that because he's disconnected from the community. His only connection is his congregation which is aging, retired and mostly commuters. These poor political decisions are directly related to the increase in crime. You reap what you sow.

I seriously doubt that any of the homicides so far could have been prevented by more police on the streets. While I favor more police more could be accomplished by a prosecutor that actually prosecutes.

More cops on the streets has ZERO effect on homicides. Good investigators, training,resources and prosecutors do. Good luck with that.

The Truth of the Matter said...

Patience is something most people have a huge lacking of. Just like our President, people thought, were never told so, that the changes he wants would be all made and done in a months time.

Huge changes take time, months of time sometimes and un-fixing stupid isn't as easy as some may think.

Give Chief Smith some time you un-graceful pricks to do some changing. Look at what he has done a year from now is what will be important.

I wouldn't talk to MSM either unless in a public form where all can here what he said and not twist his words.

We just need to make the plaza safe and the criminals unwelcome. Let them go to Westport and the hood and do whatever they want there

More police won't solve shit. There is no place or money to house criminals anymore. The streets of Jackson County are lawless.

Give all the business owners a gun and tell them good luck if you get robbed because we don't have enough police to protect you anymore.

Is the count still. 111?

So we pay one chief to tear it all down then another chief to rebuild it.
And people wonder WTF is wrong with KCPD and why crime is so high.

Anonymous said...

KCPD sucks.

Super Dave said...

11:02 is correct that until the courts are able to deal with the criminals the proper way more police isn't going to help either and maybe that's a part of Chief Smiths plan.

Instead of another airport and stupid hotel with street cars going no where use that money to build a huge ass prison and deal with this killing/crime wave.

We all know what the issue is but for what ever reason everyone and I mean everyone turns a blind eye to it.

Giving more money to KCPD is like throwing good money away.

KCPD is a joke from one phony program to the next.
Kansas City Together, COMPSTAT, NOVA, Consultants, crime-fighting committees.
What the next bullshit line.

^^^^^^...was Troy's decision, not KCPD's. Let's put the blame where it truly belongs.

You can put 500 more cops on the street you will not stop the shootings the robbers the crime you have thousands of guns obtained illegally. And are the cops going to be there every time someone starts shooting or robbing or looting or arson you are fooling yourself ..EVERY BODY PLAYS THE FOOL.THERE NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me..
I'm from CANADA, I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me any more So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{driayaryi2012@hotmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next 3 days, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past {5} months gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {driayaryi2012@hotmail.com},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Iyaryi for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{driayaryi2012@hotmail.com} And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number: +2349057915709 Thanks Dr. IyaryI
