TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY COMMUNITY ACTIVIST COALITION UNITES TO QUESTION DEADLY POLICE SHOOTING!!!



The circumstances surrounding a Kansas City gunman shot and killed Monday night near 60th Street and Blue Hills Road have evoked anger throughout the urban core and now inspire a unified outcry among community leaders who question KCPD tactics.

Background on the incident from the night of the fatal shooting:

KCPD Spokeswoman Kari Thompson said officers attempted to perform a car check at Citadel Apartments but the driver got out and ran. Officers chased the man on foot. Thompson said the man then pulled a gun and one of the officers shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Almost immediately following the deadly incident, nearby residents shared social media contradiction of the official story.

However, what's more important is an organized effort to pose questions to authorities on this topic of this killing . . .

KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS DIRECT OUR ATTENTION OF KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS WORKING ON A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT TO QUESTION THIS DEADLY KCPD SHOOTING!!!

Take a look at some of the talking points:

- Local activists offer their narrative of the KCPD action in context of the 2017 homicide spike: "Has it occurred to anyone in this town that there could be a connection between us having the highest homicide rate in decades and the fact that our police department has killed 5 people (that I know of) in the past year?"

- There's a great deal of frustration over tactics which has earned viral reaction via KC social media. A quote from a prominent online critic: "One questions, rather doubts, comments by a KCPD spokesperson, they are not adding up . . . If the victim was running away and an officer reportedly used a Taser, when that didn't stop the suspect? Did they shoot him in the back?"

- Additionally, members of the SCLC - Kansas City have questioned the necessity of the shooting amid a tidal wave of community OUTRAGE in the aftermath of this killing. Other civil rights organizations are also being encouraged to weigh-in on the topic of deadly police-shootings and RESIDENT REVIEW in the context of upcoming and continued local debate over proposed City Hall control of the KCPD.

And so . . .

Contradiction of the KCPD account was automatic via social media . . . The real story that will impact police & neighborhood relations in 2018 is rising anger among local residents in the aftermath of this deadly altercation and a growing partnership among community interests focused on criticism of police tactics.

Here's the thing, I don't think police have a problem with the public getting more involved and asking legitimate questions about a shooting incident. The guy had a gun, it's really hard to defend that. But public participation is a two way street. You can't just make demands and contribute nothing, there's also a need for the community to step up and get involved when authorities need help identifying a suspect or catching a criminal. Often we see that "community outreach" is overlooked!

A case like this might be EXACTLY why we don't want the Mayor & council to control police. A gut reaction and emotional response doesn't want to wait for the facts to come in, a lot of people just want to rant on facebook to boost their follower count. They aren't even looking for change, just more opportunities to take donations.

Pointing a gun at police is a really dumb idea. End of story. There are more important debates we should be having. I saw a few of these posts too, but a lot of them didn't respond to questions about the merits of their accusations, they just wanted to do some bitching.

KC absolutely needs more community review of the deadly shootings. I also see that there are people asking about the release of the video of the shootings. These are reasonable requests. Police serve the community, not the other way around.

^^^ Some of that might be true, but not everybody shot and killed by the police is a martyr. The guy had a gun and engaged in a confrontation with police. We should not create a situation where we're leaving officers defenseless and unable to protect themselves. Use some common sense here, a lot of the people "contradicting" this story don't even mention the gun he had because they're only telling one side of the story. So much of the "outrage" over deadly officer-involved shootings are really about something else besides the specifics of the case, there are a lot of activists who want a rallying cry and don't care if the facts don't match up with their story.

I'm not saying a review of a shooting is wrong, but the police aren't the only people who need their motives examined.

"Has it occurred to anyone in this town that there could be a connection between us having the highest homicide rate in decades and the fact that our police department has killed 5 people (that I know of) in the past year?" Not to anyone who is sane, rational and has an IQ that's north of a turnip's.

Even someone with an iq south of a turnip should be smart enough to not pull a gun on a police officer.

It occurrred to me that they deserved it so maybe you should blame the your black people (bow tie sLIE I’m on a book tour and ain’t gots no time for you motherfuckas) for all this instead of the police

Pull a gun on anyone and you deserve to die for doing so cop or no cop.

I’m glad they killed him. We need police to shoot and kill 5 hood rats every week, not just 5 per year.

FACT: You pull a gun on a KCMO Police Officer and you will be shot. Mothers and Fathers, tell your children this over and over!

That’s a crime solution right there. Tired of hearing this racial crap every time one of these hoods is shot - Good riddance!

It isn’t a police problem, it’s a hood rat problem. I wish they had killed a few of his friends and family members too.

There ain’t no reason for no racist police to kill this dude. Could of walked away or tazed him

Since every black person killed by police was a) A good person; b) Turning his life around; and c) Wasn't doin' nuffin.....I have a solution to these "unwarranted" police attacks on the innocents. Police should respond to the call, observe the situation, retreat, and then file a written report. They should NOT engage the suspect under any circumstances. The police should encourage the black community to handle the situation themselves. Have Momma and Aunties, girlfriends, baby mommas, etc., do the talking. No guns, no police, no problem.

Hey obese, wailing poor people. Where do I go to protest thug rape/death culture and paying to keep you all on the public tit? Thanks!

White guilt is dying. Thank God.

I think pulling a gun on a cop is a really, really good reason. Attack law enforcement with a deadly weapon, expect to die. Period.

I just read a story before coming to this site about Haitian and African NFL players being upset at Trump over his comments. Then I read this article and the question I have is WHY do BLACK people not understand that they are not from AFRICA? It's been nearly 300 years since the last slave boat (by the way African slave traders were BLACK) to arrive in the Ameicas, not just the United States. By now with all of the emanicipations and court rulings giving them EQUAL (not superior) rights with everybody else they should have melded into the fabric of society. Why then do they not join society and have a FAMILY (daddy included), obey laws, get jobs, be producitve members of society, stop packing guns, stay in school and STOP making the same lame excuses over and over and over that the white man or THE man is keeping them down?

What did I tell y'all months ago?As soon as KC got a white police chief this bullshit would start and the ass kissing local media would jump on the bandwagon. Seems libtards can only work for boons or they feel cheated.

"Has it occurred to anyone in this town that there could be a connection between us having the highest homicide rate in decades and the fact that our police department has killed 5 people (that I know of) in the past year?". What an incredibly stupid statement and a classic non-sequitur: One thing does not follow the other.

When the prosecutor is done reviewing the case the video should be released. AND, if, has occurred i many similar type cases the video proves the officer is correct then the witness who said he was shot in the back should be charged with false reporting or some similar type crime.

These other jurisdictions have released videos where witnesses swear the cop did this or the cop did that and guess what, the video exonerates the cop. Now, there is no question that there are some bad cop shootings and they should be dealt with. More times than naught the cop was in the right.

I know witnesses see everything different, but, to run to the media or activists and swear the cop shot the guy in the back is suspect in itself. Then these activists take a witnesses statement as gospel and before the evidence has been release they whip everyone up into a frenzy......that should be criminal in itself.

Lesson here: don't run from the cops and if you are running from the cops don't be carrying a gun!!!!!!

The only time Black Lives Matter is when a cop shoots a black. The rest of the 150 times a black shoots a black BLM is nowhere to be found . BLM is based on lies.

The public has zero 'say' in the justified use of deadly force by anyone. If it meets the requirements of Missouri law, it's justified.

Obviously under the new Chief, KCPD is going back to their old ways and putting up the big blue wall. Say what you want about Forte but at least he was open and transparent and worked hard at community involvement.

Nah. He was a walking scandal, the ultimate affirmative action hire without a shred of leadership or attention to crime. A useless showboat who cashed in while the streets ran red.

A thug died and you're upset. It's too soon to judge but any crim who wants to point a gun at a cop has ended his own stupid life.
