TKC TUESDAY JUXTAPOSITION!!! WHO WILL WIN JACKSON COUNTY POLITICAL FEUD BETWIXT PROSECUTOR 'MEAN' JEAN PETERS BAKER VS. EXEC FRANK WHITE?!?!
A recent resignation and new hiring at the embattled Jackson County Jail doesn't really solve anything but instead offers a brief respite in order to access the situation.
Accordingly, and in the aftermath of a crisis tipping point . . .
RECENT JACKSON COUNTY DEBATE OFFERS PUBLIC CONFIRMATION OF A LONGSTANDING FEUD BETWIXT THE JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR VS. THE COUNTY EXEC!!!
A quick refresher on the recent war of words and stories that broke first among our blog community . . .
Prosecutor Mean Jean publicly declined an invitation to join the Jail Task Force and offered a written slap in the face . . .
And then Exec Frank White quickly fired back with a missive that put the whole system on trial . . .
The money line and a look at how this thing might play out . . .
"The work of this task force goes well beyond the specifics of any one incident in our jail, or quite frankly, whether a new jail is ultimately needed. This task force has been asked to look at our criminal justice system and engage in an open and honest discussion about:
"Who should be in the jail? Who is there now? Why are they there? Finally, are all defendants treated equally and fairly?"
To wit and because we want to try and be fair to both parties here . . .
COURTHOUSE INSIDERS FEAR "TEAM FRANK" PLAYING THE RACE CARD WHILST OTHERS CELEBRATE THE SOCIAL JUSTICE SHOUT OUT!!!
Either way, as we enter an election year . . . Look for this opposition to continue as one of the most powerful local ladies and an embattled Kansas City legend are likely to continue their quarrel.
