NEWSFLASH!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE FLUBBED JAIL RESPONSE!!!

The newspaper is picking up a story that's about two years-old regarding decrepit jail conditions. These facts were widely reported by media outlets throughout the metro but now represent dead-tree deciding that they don't like the exec now that that he's politically vulnerable and facing financial scrutiny amid a great many Feds lurking at the Courthouse. Checkit:

Frank White slow to fix jail flaws, grand jury records show | The Kansas City Star

Thousands of pages of newly unsealed court documents obtained by The Star offer insights into the missteps, mismanagement and years of neglect that led the Jackson County jail to its current crisis. Officials knew, for instance, that the jail's cell doors were in bad shape as far back as 2007, but only in the past couple of years were they repaired after security concerns grew to alarming levels.

They just need to build a new prison in Jackson county just for Jackson county residents. It’s that bad there.

Build a wall around the east side and keep it heavily armed. That’s where the majority of the jailbirds “stay at” anyway. Be sure to put Foreclosure Frank in with them.

"That makes five reports in all since 2015 when the three done by paid consultants are included." White's administration has to keep trying to find somebody to make a report say what White wants to say.

Planned obsolescence at its best.

In spite of his golden gloves Frank made errors too when he played baseball.

White is so far in over his head; he is wholly unqualified for this job. This is a perfect example of a black guy getting a job from other black guys simply because he's black. If he was a white guy named Frank Black with the same "qualifications" his resume would have been quickly deleted, as should have.
