Here's the most amazing piece of Kansas City journalism out there right now.

Suggested by one of the best and brightest TKC readers . . .

AS THE KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE COUNT STANDS AT 111, JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR MEAN JEAN PETERS BAKER OFFERS UNPRECEDENTED PERSPECTIVE ON THE TOUGHEST PART OF HER JOB!!!

Check it:

Marshall Project: The Hardest Phone Call a Prosecutor Has to Make

"There is no training for this in law school. It’s a part of the criminal justice system that is seldom seen or even portrayed in pop culture. But like a doctor who must inform a patient of some terrible illness, a prosecutor like me often has to deliver tough news to victims, or — when a victim has died — to their families."

While the elected leader has her critics, this kind of insight into her work might help to create more understanding about the people who enforce laws amid the current crime wave.

You decide . . .

Is she saying it’s easy to tell the parents of the murdered victims that she’s letting their murderers off on a light sentence??? This idiot isn’t getting any sympathy from me or most of the people she works for. If she feels so bad why doesn’t she work harder to get longer sentences instead she’s writing about how hard her job is, this is your job and it’s hard, I got news for you lady, all Jobs are hard. That is unless you work for Jackson co. Or your a mayor or council person. Everybody else has a tough job lady. People die everyday making sure you and us have a house, cars, electricity ,gas, water, roads and protection. They die everyday and nobody knows or notices. get over yourself already

Get over yourself lady.
I'm a Safety Engineer. Last week we had a guy get chemical burns over 80 percent of his body.
He is now in a medically induced coma.
We had to tell the family.
They did not teach us that in college either.
We don't make the newspapers like self-pity whinners like you.

These problems are mostly linked to Jackson County Judges and in this case the Appellate Court. Make no mistake. Our crime problem is directly linked to our state Judges.

Jean Petersucker Baker is a perfect example of why a dumb cunt should never be prosecutor.

Oh Please Ms. Jean.

You have time...obviously you've taken the time to write this and submit it to a organization in New York, meanwhile Kansas City is being tarnished by the criminal activity under your watch.

Please focus on getting the "known" criminals off the street and send a message to the citizens of KC that you and your staff in the DA office have their safety as a priority.

Sounds like a shitload of excuses to me.

She is the start of the problem. Make no mistake she doesn't file cases if she thinks she might lose. She doesn't want her winning percentage to be low when she runs for election. McCaskill did the same thing. The criminals know this and use it to their advantage. In the end the politics and election are more important than hammering the shit out of criminals. Doubt me take a look at her conviction rate and look at how it is tabulated. They let criminals walk in order to keep the stats up.

she doesn’t have a problem cashing her checks though, just complains about actually having to do something for a living

You're right.

It's her political stepping stone.

What a crock of lameness. She knew the score going in and making excuses for her lack of dealing with local crime is inexcusable. If the evidence isn't there that's one thing but when the overwhelming evidence is there there is no excuse for reduced charges based on plea deals. In short nobody is scared of Jean Peters Baker. She'll never be known as the hard ass prosecutor but amongst the criminal element she is probably know as the push over bitch who loves to hand out lighter charges.

Well do something about the crime then you won't have such a huge problem!

And remember it's the job you choose to do.

SUCK IT UP

All of the arm chair prosecutors think they can do a better job even though it's unlikely that they even know what all she has to do.

Some of this vitriol is just pure, mean misogyny.

You hate all women, & especially any woman who tries to be more than a sex object.

Since she's probably running for County Executive, appearing human will help. Although doing her job and keeping the rest of us safe would help more.

I love all women but I hate pure assholes like Byron who sucks us all up in his need for attention.

GD for a blind guy he sure does do a lot of reading.

Boo hoo hoo poor Mean Jean.

Whining weakling.

How hard is is to tell a family the killer of their son or a molestor of their daughter got a light sentence because they had a lawyer who knew how to get "good deals" from the Prosecutor?

Her job is to put criminals in prison. People are dying because she cannot or will not do her job well.

I wonder how many serial killers she has created just by letting the number of people plea out as she does or lighter sentences given. She surely has created serial killers all over KC

Most pathetic excuse for a prosecutor ever. If she were in any jurisdiction other than JACOMO, she couldn’t get elected dog catcher.

Retro ROCKER said...

You give them a long sentence I'm all for it the problem is there are thousands ready to take there place there are hundreds out there committing crimes over and over that never get caught. And of all colors of the rainbow. .

Could she really be a worst County Executive than Frank White? I wish her luck!

Byron is expanding his horizons. Instead of bleating about racism or homophobia, now it's misogyny.

The county executive job is to fix the jail Baker fucked up so let her jump in the fire. As far as Jean Baker's writing skills, it reads like it was written by cyborg's
