OUTCRY AFTER BAD HOMBRE CRIMINAL HISTORY OF SUSPECTED KCK DEADLY MASS SHOOTERS EMERGES!!! 'THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN CUSTODY!!!'
As the nation confronts increasingly divisive arguments over restorative justice, amnesty and increasingly politicized presidential pardons -- A deadly mass shooting in KCK highlights an ongoing weakness in the local criminal justice system.
Check TKC comments and a quick review of social media and notice that the "revolving door" tactics of local judges and prosecutors have earned rebuke from locals who demand public safety accountability from officials rather than just community weeping by way of tragic vigils.
Main point . . .
ONE OF MANY MESSAGES SENT TO TKC HIGHLIGHTS THE RECORD OF MISDEEDS BY THE SUSPECTS AND ARGUES: "THEY SEEM LIKE CAREER CRIMINALS WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN CUSTODY!!!"
"One of the suspects had several previous failure to appear warrants issued for him over the last two years as well which pretty much have been reduced to signature bonds each time. The other suspect has previous convictions in Wyandotte for attempted aggravated robbery x3 and in Johnson County KS for burglary. He’s also on pretrial release for assault on an officer in Jackson County according to Casenet . . . "
The law & order sentiment is confirmed but, strangely, not highlighted by local media . . .
Political perspective . . . Despite progressive activist arguments otherwise, homeowners and stakeholders in Latino neighborhoods are far more enthusiastic about putting more police on local streets along with support for increased cooperation with authorities. Reality check: Progressive posturing against police, immigration authorities and law enforcement in general is mostly and impotent talking point given that the Democratic Party always goes along with more border security and bigger police budgets. Moreover, Prez Trump still hasn't passed fmr. Prez Obama's record for deportations.
Alternative perspective: Listen and look closely to Latino community reaction and the public at large -- Any objective denizen of the local discourse will notice more support for tougher tactics from judges against violent criminals and support for a greater police presence on local streets as metro violence worsens.
