TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MINORITY KCPD OFFICERS THREATEN TO SPLIT WITH RANK AND FILE POLICE UNION AND SUPPORT LOCAL CONTROL PUSH!!!
Behind the scenes, the argument against the current structure governing Kansas City police is quickly crumbling as this cowtown remains the last holdout using an old school system of checks and balances.
The very latest and something that all of the other news outlets are missing . . .
RIGHT NOW POLITICOS ARE WORKING ON GATHERING OPINION FROM A DIVERSE COALITION OF MINORITY OFFICERS WHO SUPPORT LOCAL CONTROL!!!
Remember that last time around the police union and their many vocal many supporters VALIANTLY put down the local talk for so-called local control and stalled the discussion for nearly half a decade.
Now, with STL establishing local control . . . The push is more serious and politicos have become emboldened to push the discussion forward by a cadre of social justice protesters seeking "transformative" change in 2020.
They've clearly done their research given that they're already casting rhetorical stones at Northland/Copland nearly all white representation.
A quick word from people who know:
"Yeah, I like the union guys but that's only one faction of the department. There are a lot of us and we don't all have the same opinion as the suburbanite veterans from out North. So, there are a lot of other viewpoints that need to be heard in this discussion. They're already pressing the Chief to come out and say something and he's stalling for as long as possible."
It's a simple strategy of divide and conquer that doesn't have an answer just yet.
Never mind that the INSIDER debate is REALLY about City Hall getting their hands on those lucrative police pensions and doesn't really have anything to do with social justice given that KC pretty much ALREADY HAS LOCAL CONTROL of the police department.
And so, as always, we arm our blog community with FIRST INSIDER DEETS AND BEHIND THE SCENES GOSSIP whilst the suits and hacks attempt to distract the public with culture war chatter.
