Meth Town Baseball Bat Murder Hottie Suspect Walks In Double Jeopardy Blunder

This is a devastating outcome for the Jackson County Prosecutor's office and their political connections going into a brutal 2020 election season . . .

"(A) witness was unavailable for this trial setting forcing us to not be able to proceed with the case," Jackson County Prosecutor Peters Baker said. "The case was then dismissed, and then immediately refiled. Upon that dismissal this procedural rule of double jeopardy went into play."

Double jeopardy: It's traditionally known as a person being tried twice for the same crime. Peters Baker said there's a procedural rule where if a case has already gone to trial you cannot dismiss the case and then refile after that dismissal.

Bad look for the prosecutor. If anybody decided to run against her, they would be able to leverage this case against her tenure in office. People forget that she is an elected official.

Another case Mean Jean has fucked up.

Come on people, it's time to demand a stop to this lack of prosecuting these murder cases properly. Here we have another killer being turned back out onto the streets under the supervision Jean Baker.

Another democrat that is ruining this country who is a member of those trying to impeach our POTUS when it's clear she is who should be removed from office immediately.

Just one more murderer set free by the incompetent and pathetic Petersucker, Jesus Christ man, this is eight years she’s been around letting murderers go free and yet nobody says a damn thing about her, why?

But, but she's the chair of the Missouri state Democratic Party.
First things first.
These political party politics are killing local communities.
Both Jackson County and KCMO are cesspools of incompetence and outright corruption.
How about less "politics" and way more competence and involvement in the actual responsibilities of county and city government?
Start with homicides, property assessments, and infrastructure, and go on from there.
Just when you might think the prosecutor's job should be appointed you realize that it would be appointed by Frank White!
What a menagerie!!

Dems are soft on crime to be sure. I don't think a statement is going to be enough, I'd like to see some kind of effort to do better so we're not just letting more killers on the street day after day.

County should really think about voting for Republicans for a change just to mix things up. What could it hurt?
