Mayor Q's KC is so cold, so very cold.

As someone previously stated on TKC KCMO is in desperate need of money and is willing to do anything and everything to get the police under city control. They want the pension money and shortly after taking control of the police the pension money will be rolled into the general fund. Next up will be the KCFD pension fund rolled over into the general fund. Then within 5 years KCMO will not be able to meet the pension obligations so it will be a replay of the Detroit and Chicago fiasco.

"Robinson said with more than $250 million spent on public safety, the conversation isn’t only needed for accountability..."

"This is about accountability," Robinson said" she goes on to state... ""This is something that is impacting all of us, and people are tired and frustrated,” she said."

Robinson represents the KC's 3rd District

Well, dear councilwoman Robinson, let's be reasonable. It starts at home. How about you addressing the mothers, absentee fathers, brothers, sisters, preachers, aka ministers, barbers, beauticians and hair weavers (YES, these folks know who the criminals are) and demand ACCOUNTABILTY there?

You might ask why the idea of local control of the KCPD always seems to come from the 3rd council district.
Of course, the KCPD is already controlled by KCMO residents who are locally nominated and then appointed to the Police Board by the governor. The idea that anyone in Jeff City runs the police is silly and uninformed.
And just imagine if the police department were run by the same people who regularly allow themselves to be intimidated and run around by the urban core revs and other usual suspects.
Results just like the recent Paseo fiasco.
And suddenly many more millions of tax dollars would become available for unaccountable fake "anti-crime" nonprofits.
The current system was created for very good reasons that haven't changed.
Robinson needs to find another more productive horse to ride.
Maybe she could start by telling the revs NO.

So, you want the same people who brought you the Paseo disaster, to have control of the police.

Melissa Robinson needs to get off her fat ass and address her fellow negroes that they not guns are the issue. That black people killing black people has nothing to do with controlling the police. Or maybe they want control so the thugs can kill even more people. To control the police by telling them to not arrest anyone black for anything. So they can tell the police to not ever stop a car with a black person in it. Melissa Robinson is nothing but a joke put in place by black people just because she is black.
