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 . . .
