TKC QUESTION: WILL MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS KEEP PROMISE TO HIRE MORE KANSAS CITY POLICE IMMEDIATELY?!?

At the start of the week, we talked BENCHMARKS FOR THE NEW MAYOR and then MSM chased down some quotes to follow-up our blog community FIRST NEWS . . . Here's a worthwhile glimpse of what they came up with and a common lament among neighborhoods throughout KCMO:

New KCMO mayor promises to add to KCPD force

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City's new mayor has promised the Fraternal Order of Police to add to KCPD's ranks. Mayor Quinton Lucas said he's angry about the murder of 8-year-old Brian Bartlett on Saturday. The boy's home was riddled with bullets while he was sleeping. His mom was also injured.

If he doesn't then we need to talk about recall before the crime gets any worse.

He can get all the money by eliminating all the anti crime programs that do nothing but collect checks, that would be the right thing to do.

Not enough people want to be officers. Applicants can’t pass KCPDs strict background checks. KCPD is no longer a premier organization. You have to live in the city. The Chief is a moron. You will never be able to hire enough officers.

If Quinton Lucas is angry about the murder an of 8 year old then he needs to do something about it. I noticed he's not concerned about the young white girl killed the other week. Think he's going to hire more police? He's not!

Hiring a few more police would not have prevented the drive by shooting that killed the poor 8 year old. Somebody in that house made dangerous enemies and put the boy in danger. But the police won't talk about it, and the media regularly suppress facts that are inconvenient to their world view...which include pretty much all facts. Refusal to acknowledge the obvious cause of the murder will continue because no one with authority has the guts to do it. So go ahead, hire more cops and pretend that will fix it. Nothing will change.

I hope he hires a bunch of black cops so the world can see that it doesn't matter if the cops are black or white, they are still going to shoot to kill the threats. In Kansas City, blacks commit more violent crimes, and are therefore in the cross hairs considerably more, than whites. It's a fact of crime statistics. If blacks commit more crimes, they are going to be targeted more. Why would a police officer pull over a minivan driven by a white woman with three kids in the van when all they need to do is pull over the pimp mobile that changed lanes improperly or smelled like a bong driving by the police at 2:00 AM?
