Kansas City Dead-Tree Media Defends Mayor Sly's Angry Rant Against Police Board Request For More KCPD Dispatchers

In a discussion of local priorities and public safety, the newspaper plays politics mostly from the comfort of the suburbs:

Are you listening, police board? KC mayor was right about 'banging on the city crap'

Here's the bottom line on the bottom line: More than three-quarters of Kansas City's general fund spending goes to public safety. The biggest share of new spending in the city's proposed budget will also go to fund the police and fire departments and municipal courts.

The cops don't want to be part of the city, but want all the benefits of being part of the city. If the cops want to have more say, they should endorse local control like every other city in the nation.

Are you listening, KC Star? You're a dead end. Nothing but a nauseating cheerleader for Mayor Bullhorn and his Clown Car Revue.

They don't want to be a part of a corrupt city government. Sounds reasonable to me. Maybe when the Feds finally have the Mayor and City Manager in prison the PD will reconsider local control.

If you are curious what a big fat asshole tastes like, just ask any member of the Star editorial board, or any Star reporter or columnist.

If the city had control gay sLIE would be their boss and that wouldn’t be good for anyone of us, look how bad he’s fucked them up just by being on the police board...... gives me shivers just thinking about it

It would actually be Schulte. Mayor is just one vote. City Manager runs everything.

Why does the city underfund the cops? The city should be hiring more dispatchers so the 911 call center doesn’t flip over to a recording to hold the line. Where does al the tax money go?

Bottom line is the officers make decent money as front line personel. Off duty and obtaining rank would increase their salary. If,PD were city controlled they could have been negotiating a salary matrix similar to what KCKPD did with their FOP and the city. Staggered matrix based on the cities monetary health.KCKPD worked with the city. Local control is the normal in LE. SLPD is transition..Next in line KCPD.
