By Councilman Ellington's logic:

Since blacks are much more likely to be pulled over in Missouri and Jackson County, we shouldn't have any traffic laws at all.

He needs to stop playing the race card with everything, it’s no longer needed

Oh yes lets protect those who are most likely to be the ones that break the law the most. I am getting so tired of seeing those who break the law being better protected than those who obey said laws.

Brandon Ellington claims, "The reason why we don't have state law against texting while driving is because we see that more than 91% of blacks are likely to be stopped. This is not my opinion. It's the Attorney General's opinion," he said, referring to a state report that black drivers were more likely to be pulled over than their white counterparts.

If it's the truth then it's the truth. When it's the truth it isn't racial profiling at all.

Kudos to Mayor Lucas for once in taking the correct stand here.

Kansas has a half ass version of this law and they same as never enforce it so makes me wonder if this whole issue by the city is even worth the time if it isn't going to be enforced. So many damn laws on the books now that are ignored and if you think that isn't so just ask Jean Baker about that. She does a great job of ignoring the law.

What an idiotic Council; you have to look at public safety through the lens of racial profiling, what a crock!!! An accident caused by distracted driving doesn't care what race you are. And if you are driving distracted by using your phone, then you get pulled over, regardless of the race you are. You folks need to get a grip and stop cowtowing to special interest groups. Public safety is the issue, not racial profiling.

Guess the race of the KCPD Officer who was texting while driving a KCPD van that slammed into the back of a car and killed a 17 yr old last year.............And Ellington is worried about racial profiling

It’s mostly white people doing this so... it will never be enforced.
