TKC READER TALK BACK: LAME DUCK CRIME FAIL LEGACY OF MAYOR SLY EXPOSED BY PETE MUNDO!!!
This week we convered an important KANSAS CITY EXIT INTERVIEW that revealed a bit of tension from Mayor Sly who is now officially a lame duck. Fact is, ever since voters rejected the Pre-K sales tax the Mayor hasn't really had much power.
And so, for Sunday night a TKC reader writes us back and offers this perspective that proves the City Hall honco's 8-years of ineffectiveness in finding a solution to curb crime.
Here's the word:
This week police announced they're adopting a new approach to fighting crime in Kansas City.
This comes right after Mayor James said on Pete Mundo's show that they've tried "everything" when it comes to fighting crime.
Apparently, KCPD is scrapping an approach that was instituted in 2013. Mayor James was on Mundo's show June 18th, and news of the changes broke on June 20th. Was Mayor James unaware of this?!?! Or is he now so out of loop that he is no longer consulted on these kind of changes despite the fact he's on the Police Board?
Whatever the case, it's nice to see KCPD come up with a new plan given that what we've been doing for the past 8 year hasn't worked.
