RAYTOWN RAGE AGAINST 'PUBLIC NUISANCE' WALMART AMID POLICE CUTS!!!
Corporate tax giveaways and NEARLY 1/3RD OF ALL CRIME in this metro city confront politicos dealing with a shrinking budget.
Take a look:
Fox4: As police layoffs loom, Raytown considers declaring Walmart a ‘public nuisance’
“Walmart does not pay anything to the city of Raytown; no property taxes, anything because of the TIF," Cheryl White said.
Chief Lynch says he's already informed the 17 police officers, they’ll be off the force in Raytown on November 1st.
But Tuesday night in a final meeting between the Board and Police Command staff, Teeman proposed an unusual solution.
“Would you be in support of a declaration on this board of making Walmart a public nuisance?" Teeman asked.
“I would consider (Walmart) to be a drain on our resources," Major Randy Hudspeth said.
Raytown Police say they made more than 500 arrests at Walmart in 2016. In May an off-duty Jackson County deputy shot and killed a shoplifter investigators say reached for her taser.
Raytown Police say Walmart accounts for 30 percent of their part-one crime.
