TKC MUST SEE!!! ACTIVISTS DEMAND KANSAS CITY'S NEXT MAYOR CHALLENGE THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!!!
The growing debate over clemency for some of the extraordinarily high number of people incarcerated in the United States now confronts Kansas City mayoral hopefuls.
Brief aside . . . About the lead image: Adam Zyglis is a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and this fair use snippet of his work "Land of the Free" offers a glimpse of the American justice system which many believe is broken.
Hence . . .
ACTIVISTS AGAINST MASS INCARCERATION CHALLENGE KANSAS CITY'S NEXT MAYOR TO ADDRESS PROBLEMS OF THE SO-CALLED PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!!!
As of this writing, few of the candidates have confirmed but it'll be interesting to see if SJW activists can convince political hopefuls to help free inmates at a time when neighborhoods are demanding more police on local streets.
Here's the word:
Mayoral Forum : Decarcerate Kansas City
"The purpose of this forum is to give Kansas City voters an opportunity to discuss the issues that they feel are important in this election. The theme of this forum is Decarcerate Kansas City: End the Criminalization of Poverty and Race in Kansas City. The public will be invited to ask candidates questions related to criminal justice concerns.
"The Kansas City Criminal Justice and Equity Coalition represents individuals and organizations who are deeply committed to policies aimed at reducing the number of people in our city jails, eliminating biased and unfair practices involving cash bail as well as improving the relationship between the community and gaining local control of the police department."
