TKC BLOG COMMUNITY REQUEST: SOCIAL MEDIA ATTENTION-SEEKING, LENIENT JUDGE AND ANTI-WHITE TRUMP HATE APPARENT IN WRIST SLAP SENTENCE THREATENING KANSAS CITY & NATION!!!
More than a half-dozen readers have requested this story and want to consider its local implications.
And so . . .
MANY TKC BLOG COMMUNITY DENIZENS DECRY PROBATION AGAINST AN ATTACKER IN A BRUTAL BEAT DOWN TARGETING A SPECIAL NEEDS PERSON WHILST ANTI-WHITE AND ANTI-TRUMP RHETORIC WAS ESPOUSED!!!
Here's the comment that was most reasonable amid the slew of outrage sent this way . . .
"You covered this kidnapping and assault earlier this year so I think it deserves more attention. One of the members of the gang who attacked a mentally challenged person was recently let go on probation. It's beyond explanation that such a dangerous individual could be placed back on the streets but we see the same thing here in Kansas City - Jackson County in particular. When the prosector's office does take a big case and earn a conviction, criminals are let back on the street in days. In KC the judges are off the hook when it comes to crime because they have political connections to keep their jobs. What's worse is that we don't see any consequences for hate crimes that are committed by black people. A double standard exists. If the situation was reversed there would be a national outrage but in this case the story is largely forgotten. I hope you offer some follow-up coverage because this case isn't just about Chicago. This same kind of thing is happening everywhere in our country and it's a big part of the reason the KC murder rate is so high."
