ACTIVIST OUTRAGE OVER ICE 'BROKEN GLASS' ARREST PUSHING KANSAS CITY CLOSER TO 'SANCTUARY' STATUS?!?



Just as TKC reported before any other news outlet in town, the activist outrage against a controversial ICE arrest was overwhelming and resonated from KC to the nation's capital.

Because of the decline of legacy media, there were very few popular voices to contradict what was a progressive outpouring of sympathy, anger and promises of reform.



A few things to clear up . . .

- KCPD didn't break the glass. There are plenty of online and social media rumors out there, we want to provide an accurate view of the sitch.

- Can ICE arrest a suspected illegal alien and are they allowed to use force?!?!? Yes and maybe . . . In the course of their duties, ICE agents are entitled to take an alien into custody with or without a warrant—see 8 U.S.C. Sections 1226 and 1357. However, there's A LOT of debate this one . . . An expert notes: "The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, that individuals—including illegal aliens and aliens under a final order of removal—may be free from "unreasonable" searches and seizures, whether of their property or person. Translated into everyday practice, this means that officers with an arrest warrant, regardless whether it is civil or criminal in nature, may not enter the premises of a wanted person without a search warrant concurrently authorizing them to do so." Again, this is up for debate and there are likely few Constitutional scholars reading this dumb-ass blog.

- Overall, the reaction from the local leaders, politicos and people willing to go on record has been overwhelmingly negative regarding the tactics of ICE used locally.

That's right . . .

THE CONTROVERSIAL ICE ARREST HAS MOBILIZED LOCAL PROGRESSIVE LEADERS TO OPPOSE KCPD COOPERATION WITH ICE!!! MOREOVER, THIS BUST IS PLAYING HORRIBLY IN THE LOCAL MEDIA WITH NO CONSERVATIVE LEADER STEPPING UP TO DEFEND SPRAYING BROKEN GLASS ON BABIES IN ORDER TO NAB A CHEF!!!

Or a "taco dude" as some of the TKC blog readers have tagged him.

Meanwhile, TKC loves a lot of the comments and there have been some great arguments that try to bring reason and perspective to a debate wherein the suspect might be a federal felon repeatedly violating U.S. law and endangering his loved ones in the process . . . But let's be objective and realistic . . . The average person who has seen the "broken glass" clip and witnessed some of the nastier comments isn't swayed by the trolling.

And c'mon, when do the "good guys" ever split up a reasonably happy family in the movies??? Without taking sides, there's no denying the optics. A wise, beloved and probably drunk lady once said:

"The more you tighten your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."



Worse still . . .

WITHOUT A REASONABLE CONSERVATIVE VOICE TO DEFEND ICE IN THE KC MEDIA, THE ALT-RIGHT TROLLING TURNS EVEN MORE PEOPLE AWAY FROM IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT!!! MOST OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA RIGHT-WING ARGUMENTS PLAY LIKE HATE SPEECH!!! 

Meanwhile, progressives have turned this family tragedy into an opportunity.

Let's not forget that the new Mayor-Elect has a racial justice plan to create a Municipal ID card that could've allowed that dude to go along his merry way, likely bypassing the feds with help from local police.

To wit and considering the "many sides" of this hot mess that has dominated the KCMO news week, now check the litany of local outrage that isn't over by a long-shot as immigration crackdowns will play a HUUUUUGE role in the 2020 election nightmare . . .

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- A Facebook live video showing ICE agents breaking a car window and pulling Florencio Millan-Vazquez from his car and arresting him in front of his girlfriend and young children, sparked a tweet from congressman Emmanuel Cleaver. This video is very concerning as to the traumatization of children and the reasonable use of force.

KC pretty much is a sanctuary city already, just lacks some of the hipster cred. Let's make it happen Quinton.

If KC turns Sanctuary. FORGET ever getting anything worthwhile from the government again. That would basically kill any hope of streetcar funding.

Think about it!

Taco dude sounds nice. A bit too nice for a felon but I get it.

Adios still means goodbye and all of the protesting for him isn't going to allow a repeat offender to stay in the U.S.

Sorry gramps, clean your diaper. You don't make any sense. I know you're scared of your own shadow in that small trailer but "targeting" 2000 people and then arresting only 35 is very wasteful. Your plan isn't working.

Johnston said...

A few good things about this post are the highlight of immigration law that shows ICE was within their rights and did not break the rules. KC Star didn't do that. And I don't like the way it was presented but I do agree, there need to be more mainstream Conservative political voices. Seems like KC is dominated by the libs on radio and TV. TKC might be more of a smartass but there is some fairness here and the comments are the main show. what's missing in the KC media scene is a REAL conservative who can provide some leadership and fact check some of the misinformation from these activists.

Kansas City has been hiding out illegal criminals for years. The new mayor is a drunk idiot who likes very very young girls and the saga continues.
Funny thing about liberal losers they want illegals here but aren't willing to pay taxes for them to get their freebies they want all conservatives to work while they roam the streets and live off of working people just like geezer hater the diaper man aka Byron Funkhouser the idiot whose parents are illiterate.

Don't think KCPD would have even waited 20 mins. to bust the window.

Sleepy pastor Cleaver would have been better off keeping his mouth shut on this one. It may come back to haunt him at next election time.

Look for the illegal to show back up in KC once the weather cools off in Arizona.

All the officers did was their jobs. This is becoming one screwed up nation of losers who hate cops and the laws they are suppose to enforce. Just too bad these liberal pussies haven't been victims in enough numbers to put a stop to harboring illegals.

I have decided I am no longer going to pay my taxes because I am tired of the money collected from me being used to support illegal residents. I should have a right to no longer be required to support those who break the law and do not serve the proper punishment for doing so.

Old people easily get worked up over racist tropes. They are the most easily manipulated people on the planet. Hence the cult of Trumptards. It's also evidenced by the slew of geriatric advertisements like catheters, gold investments, reverse mortgages, and erectile dysfunction ads on Faux News. They are the actual idiotcracy. They solely exist to be fleeced of everything they own.

The targeting of KCPD is unfair and unwarranted. To the activists against KCPD in this matter I ask this question: What's the alternative? More important, if KCPD should not cooperate with ICE, let's take their logic to its natural conclusion, then KCPD should not cooperate with any federal agency. How would that work out?

Consider this: Two years ago KCPD made a routine traffic stop of a Mexican national (we don't know but this Mexican national may have had a wife and a couple of children as well) who, as it turns out, was driving without a driver's license. The result of that routine stop? The take-down of 26 people who were working for the Sinaloa drug cartel. KCPD worked with DEA, the FBI and the Drug Task Force.

So, I'm against illegal immigration and support those who come here legally and mostly aren't a tax burden on our schools, welfare system, and healthcare system and could potentially be a violent gang member from a 3rd world shithole.

Raaaaaacist!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm against congress women who compare our strongest ally in the middle east to NAZI Germany and won't disavow anti-antisemitism/Islamic Extremism and blames America for 9/11 and asks for leniency toward ISIS recruits.

Raaaaacist!!!!!!!!!

I'm again a congress woman who is so stupid that she doesn't even know who the Federal Reserve and is actively trying to destroy our economy by forcing a ridiculous Green New deal which outlaws fossil fuels and cows.

Raaaaaaacist!!!!!!

So basically begin again the 4 stupid bitches in congress that are actively trying to destroy everything about a duly elected president and his economic accomplishments and absolutely doing nothing for the American people.

Raaaaaaacist!!!!

You and your democrat heroes' racist tropes are getting old and are no longer working to sway a majority of those with at least half a brain,

It's no wonder that there are so many "activists" about one thing or another.
It's really a great gig for lazy incompetent people.
No need to know what you're talking about or have any interest in actually learning about an issue. All that's important is what you think.
Take a point of view that certain people should do, say, and behave any way they want. The impact of their behavior on everyone is doesn't count.
If you or your fellow activists don't like a particular law or rule, just break it. Just remind everyone that any constraints on behavior are unjust, racist, or because of "privilege".
And activists have no responsibilities for anything, so don't worry about actually making a difference and changing anything or particularly about any unintended consequences of your "demands".
Now grab a sign and your smart phone and head for the next "protest".
Be sure to take lots of selfies and you might actually be on local television, so rush to get home before the 5:00 o'clock news.
And be sure to feel really really good about yourself.
You earned it!

KC will not become a sanctuary city because, thank goodness, the KCPD is controlled largely by state appointees and not by the mayor. If that were ever reversed, KC would soon become Portland without the hip. So long may it continue.

B Funk. Being a published author is easy when you have something sick to say. Witness the SCUM manifesto written by Valerie Solanis. Mom being a reg nurse is nothing to brag about, might as well brag about them being schoolteachers-half the problem is those that tell us how to think. Commie crap. I really don't think you even exist, and if you do, I believe you are so thought-corrupt that there is no hope for you.

The only thing I like about the comments here is that I seen some support for police and the work they do to keep our community safe. The rest of it seems like so much BS and just bickering trying to argue against what is our nation's law to protect our borders.
