TKC CORRECTION: KANSAS CITY STREET VACATION CHECKPOINT 'VOLUNTEERS' PAID HANDSOMELY BY WESTPORT!!!
They're securing the streets in Kansas City's favorite party district tonight and local media is reporting the facts of a much bigger story incorrectly.
Insiders hit us back with the news update that we need to repeat to clear-up so much good-hearted but ultimately incorrect reporting . . .
THE SO-CALLED CHECKPOINT 'VOLUNTEERS' ARE PAID BY WESTPORT BIZ AND MANDATED BY CITY HALL TO MONITOR ALLEGED RACIAL PROFILING!!!
Here's the word:
"These guys are shaking us down. Making us pay a higher price than our security personnel . . . We already have a police officer at each location and their training already helps monitor profiling."
Here's where it gets worse . . .
ANTI-CRIME ACTIVISTS ARE LAUNCHING THIS PROTECTION BIZ AGAINST RACIAL PROFILING AS A PILOT PROGRAM THAT THEY WANT TO EXPAND ACROSS KCMO!!!
More deets from insiders:
"We have to pay a supervisor $40,000 to report to the city how we're doing. This is an eight hour a week job. Only a little more than six months out of the year. It's highway robbery."
Accordingly . . .
AS COSTS MOUNT WESTPORT IS GETTING READY TO REJECT THIS MANDATE FROM CITY HALL THAT ENFORCES ALLEGEDLY UNFAIR BIZ PRACTICES!!!
We assume that these comments are part of their continued warning to City Hall about their frustrations but expect the discussion to get even more serious as the checkpoint debate continues. What's important is that minority biz owners in Westport are also ready to stand up against the Kansas City anti-crime group tactics.
