TKC TUESDAY MUST SEE!!! UNCOMMON ALLIES DOCUMENTARY TRAILER DEBUT EXAMINES POLICE COMMUNITY OUTREACH AMID KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!



Moviemaker Jon Brick dedicated years of his professional career to an important chronicle of deadly Kansas City crime and its impact on the community.

There's a screening for the event next month.

However . . .

FIRST ON TKC: THE DEBUT OF THE 'UNCOMMON ALLIES' TRAILER CONFRONTS KANSAS CITY'S HOMICIDE SPIKE THAT'S STILL UNDERWAY!!!

Here's the money line . . .

"At a time when widespread distrust of law enforcement is at a heightened level, Uncommon Allies explores Rosilyn Temple's role in effectively bridging the gap between grieving communities and the police department at every homicide scene in the Kansas City, MO area."

Check the clip:



Like it or not, there's controversy regarding regarding preview that needs to be at least considered despite the seemingly universal aim to raise awareness and curb the level of Kansas City killing.

KCPD officials express disdain for social justice protest and juxtapose complaints against police brutality with the rising level of local murder despite any evidence for this connection. The narrative seems to be familiar and often touted by police. Blame for the rising homicide count is imposed on communities when far more complex and thoughtful considerations of the the rising homicide problem also include and examination of judges, prosecutors, the dearth of good-paying inner-city jobs, political corruption, gangs, drugs, poverty and cultural factors as part of the conversation. At least from the preview clip - It seems that partisan debate targeting "Black Lives Matter" is the premise of the movie and protesters are represented as culprits responsible for Kansas City's homicide spike. This thesis has broad-ranging populist support but it's a viewpoint that's ultimately unpopular among the most outspoken denizens of the urban core and their allies in the mainstream media.

This kind of documentary doesn't make money, the examination of Kansas City community outreach is closely connected to activists on KC's payroll despite the moviemaker's assertion that financing for the movie was provided with help from International Documentary Association and private donors.

If we must talk about Ms. Temple's activism, let's not forget her controversial role in advocating for stricter gun control and against the 2nd Amendment. Her group "Mothers In Charge" has been at the forefront of local discourse intent on limiting the freedom of legal gun owners. Taxpayer funding of her supporters along with their political ambitions is troubling for many residents who don't want City Hall powering divisive policy discussions.

Nevertheless, battling antipathy toward police and rising deadly violence in Kansas City is a worthwhile goal. The stunning visuals and powerful testimony featured in this documentary should certainly help inspire more interest, action and consideration of the most important crisis currently confronting Kansas City that's so often overlooked and neglected.

You decide . . .

The director has an amazing style.

The points that his movie are making are right on the money. All of the protests need to look at the killing overall, not just their agenda. Well done Jon Brick! Looks like a great movie.

I admire Ms. Temple but I don't agree with some of her statements. Have to say, she is committed to her cause and still goes to every homicide scene, I wish more people would have her level of dedication.

A police documentary. Not opposed to that but it should be labeled properly.

Most of the "social justice" protesters are paid anyway, they don't care about the community. It's just part time work or part of their research for a master's thesis that nobody's ever going to read. Police are definitely correct to counter their claims.

^^No, I agree with 10:18AM, less racist geezers is what this country needs. You have fucked this country up enough. Go away.

I can only hope that KC's crime prevention and outreach has more strategy than just a documentary.

^^^ Don't bet on it.

There is no cause for alarm. Geezers die and new geezers replace them. I just like blacks. One dies and ten replace the one. It's biblical I tell ya. Not many black geezers. Just mouthy little geezeretts.

Until blacks stop the bullying with this racism crap and tribal mentality to kill all whites, nothing will change.

Oh, your momma wasn't as good as before. You get into that before me?

Maybe the mayor should come out of hiding and visit some of these murder scenes and actually try to help with cutting the murders down instead of trying to build sLIE James international airport because that’s all this is about is his legacy. Sad that he doesn’t care about what the citizens want just what he wants

Hey,10:22, you agree with 10:18 that men are needed-- NOT BathHouse wimpy weasel boys!

The geezer hater and the geezer need to get a room!

As for the movie, are they giving away free donuts? If not, I'm not really interested.

The mayor has never been serious about fighting crime. He has always hated the east side no matter what the racists think. He's an opportunist and a lawyer. No real loyalty.
