TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KCPD CRACKDOWN ON KANSAS CITY ANTIFA AHEAD OF PREZ TRUMP VISIT!!!
Right now, activists allege that Kansas City Police are unjustly targeting their members ahead of an upcoming visit by President Trump. Authorities have long been at odds with local ANTIFA and various group aligned with the alt-left and, to be fair, this police investigation should've been expected and is likely supported by many locals and most Kansas City elected officials.
To wit . . .
FIRST ON TKC!!! CHECK HIGHLIGHTS OF KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS AND ARGUMENTS AGAINST KCPD PREP FOR PREZ TRUMP!!!
Just published moments ago and forwarded our way by AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS . . .
Progressive Youth Organization - PYO: KCPD and UMKC Are Working Together To Repress Student Activism
Here's the main thesis and a glimpse at the city college discourse:
"After it was announced last week that Trump has plans to visit Kansas City, PYO began organizing a protest against him. Since then, local law enforcement has harassed, threatened, and in one case, arrested student activists who they believe are affiliated with PYO. We see this as a clear attempt at political repression, directed towards student activists who wish to resist Trump and his awful policies, and organizations that are attempting to build long-term opposition to capitalism. This should give pause to all activists in Kansas City and elsewhere."
Claims of arrest . . .
On Tuesday afternoon, UMKC police entered a conference for competitive high school debate, and arrested one of the speakers, who is also a student activist, as he was delivering a presentation to the assembled youth.
On Thursday morning, KCPD came to the residence of a UMKC student activist, questioned him and threatened him with legal consequences for his involvement in student activism.
And so, we ask . . .
GIVEN PREVIOUS CLASHES WITH POLICE AND ALLEGATIONS OF VANDALISM, PUBLIC DISTURBANCES, ETC. -- IS KCPD RIGHT TO CRACKDOWN OR IS THIS SUPPRESSION OF 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHTS AS ANTIFA CLAIMS?!?
What we want to accomplish in this post is to give a fair presentation of both sides of the debate but MOST IMPORTANTLY to make sure this tense conversation about SECURITY VS. LIBERTY is taking place IN FULL VIEW OF THE PUBLIC AND VOTERS.
Whatever side of the aisle locals fall on, what's clear is that the visit from the Prez will spark more divisive debate in Kansas City.
