TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY NORTHEAST NEWS REBUKES JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR OVER GUN RIGHTS BLAME SHIFT AFTER 9INE ULTRA LOUNGE DEADLY MASS SHOOTING!!!



In one of the most scathing critiques of an elected official in Kansas City history, the Northeast News leads local media in a demand for accountability following a horrific nightclub massacre.

The basics . . .

NORTHEAST NEWS CHALLENGES THE TACTICS OF THE JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR AND CONTRADICTS HER STATEMENTS ASSIGNING BLAME BY WAY OF TARGETING MISSOURI GUN LAWS AFTER A DEADLY MASS SHOOTING!!!

On Saturday our blog community talked about the implications of permitless carry law but this point-by-point take down expertly crafted by Northeast News Publisher Michael Bushnell is some of the most brilliant community journalism we've seen in years.

Checkit:

Northeast News: Prosecutorial Malfeasance

Deets:

"On Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020, Jahron Swift, 29, a “frequent flyer” with the justice system, opened fire at a bar near 40 Highway and Noland Road, injuring 15 people and killing Raeven Parks, 25.

"One local TV station broadcast footage of Peters Baker on the scene of the shooting, almost in tears, lamenting how something like this could ever happen.

"Peters Baker pushed the blame for known felon, Jahron Swift, off on the NRA and Missouri gun laws instead of accepting the responsibility of her own actions that included letting Swift walk free on weapons and drug charges instead of sending him up the river where he belonged.

"Nevermind that Swift shouldn’t have been out of custody, much less possess a firearm given his frequent arrests for felony drug and weapons possessions."

Now, here's the legal break down that deserves attention and examines the crux of a crime fighting controversy:

"Peters Baker dropped Swift’s 2017 weapons charges in anticipation of the permitless carry legislation that would nullify the charge.

"Let that sink in for a moment. We’re told over and over by court officials that charges cannot be brought against people in anticipation of a crime, but Peters Baker dropped charges anticipating the passage of legislation that was not yet law.

"Once again, epic prosecutorial fail by the top law enforcement official in the county and this time the consequences are tragic."

There's a great deal more to this masterful opinion column that features one of the most haunting conclusions we've seen in years.

NE news doesn't hold back. I love their paper but this is something special. I wish there were more news outlets in KC who offered this kind of editorial content.

Great journalism, keep it coming!

I remember when Sly used to say the same thing, it's interesting that we haven't formulated a new response for elected officials beyond blaming somebody else.

^^^ 100% correct. They never change their tune.

The prosecutor was following the law, if you don't like it then look no further than Jefferson City. She was doing her job, it's too bad the Missouri Republicans don't want to do theirs.

Save KC said...

Local control of police or a new prosecutor won't stop this kind of violence. We've got to teach people how to solve their disputes without people going crazy and hurting or killing others.

^^^ Amen

Gee said...

KC is great, I love this city, love the sports teams and love all the wonderful things that are happening. Just don't know why the first solution to every shooting is to take everyone's guns away. It's counter productive. That's never going to happen, we have to be more pratcial when we talk about stopping the violence instead of just hate and old ideas.

I believe in three strikes your out. Jail is the only rehab for some people. The best money this city can spend is for more jail cells and the longest sentences for hard core criminals.
I would say get rid of the prosecutor, but I would anticipate a replacement who would be worse.

Peters-Baker's incompetence as a prosecutor will be even surpassed by her incompetence as the chair of the Missouri Democratic Party when their candidates get stomped state-wide in November.
KCMO needs to encourage the federal law enforcement and prosecutors to double or triple their efforts in the city and get most of these cases before federal judges, where the cases will be handled appropriately and the necessary sentences handed down.
People who are trying to live in these high-crime neighborhoods as well as the rest of the residents of the entire metro are tired of cowardice, incompetence, and endless excuses from the local "officials".

Jean Peters Baker is a typical weak on crime liberal.

Jean Petersucker Baker is incompetent and worthless and has no desire or skill to be a good prosecutor. Her incompetence and worthlessness is equal to that of our liberal fag judges. Most of our liberal fag judges and Jean Petersucker Baker went to UMKC fake third-rate law school.

Anonymous said...

This criticism of the Prosecutor reflects complete ignorance of how our criminal justice system works. Once it was clear that the Missouri's concealed carry law was changing, it was inevitable that the charges against him would ultimately be dismissed, so the Prosecutor did exactly what made sense, drop the charges before she wastes the Court's time.

There will be no need for jails, sentences, court trials, arrests, and probation once the city approves the renaming of the airport to MLK flyway which the fake fat revs are pushing.

I DO hope the victims sue the hell out of Jean/John Peters Baker (cross dressing liberal Dumbocrap) Surely there are some ethical lawyers somewhere who aren't pussys, afraid of retribution from Jackoff County Courts, who'll take up the fight. CLEARLY, she is DIRECTLY responsible vis a vis her incompetence!!!

Just think fellas, she’s been fucking up since 2011, even the commie red star way back in 2013 or 14, can’t remeber which year exactly rode her ass about letting criminals and murderers of on probation or just let them go outright. She’s just worthless, maybe someday she’ll start doing her job...... nah, it’s been nine years and she still hasn’t done anything good for the decent honest citizens of Jackson county.

But hey, she is a democrim and they created the kkk so maybe this is some back door way of eliminating the koloreds!

Get rid of her.

KC isn't a yellow vest kind of town. Maybe the French can teach us something about how do deal with this crap.

They call us Boomer because the last thing you hear is BOOM IN YER EAR. Fags with man buns get their asses kicked every day by old men. Pussys

3:56 the problem is he was busted in 2015 and it took two years to go to court because she’s a moron, what evar happened to the right to a speedy trial? You can’t cover for her incompetence, there’s too many instances of her stupidity getting people killed.

Peters Baker is worthless as tits on a snake and always has been. Of course she’s right up to par for a place like KCMO.

She's like all the rest. All she cares about is getting her big fat taxpayer funded KCMO pension for for sitting on her ass doing bare minimum work.

“big fat taxpayer funded KCMO pension for for sitting on her ass doing bare minimum work.”

Big taxpayer funded Jackson county pension for sitting on her big fat ass doing no work. There, fixed it for you.

3:56 and his lover please explain to us why this asshole wasn't in jail? Law change or not he was not to be in possession of a gun.
A state constitutional amendment on the right to bear firearms does not allow nonviolent felons to carry guns, the Missouri Supreme Court ruled in a set of opinions announced Tuesday. ... The law prohibits any felon from having a gun.

Even though the cases were still pending when Amendment 5 passed, the opinion noted that what matters is the law that existed at the time the crime occurred.

How many of the victims had health insurance ? County would be money ahead by offering hood rats range time to become better shots.

I can't believe I got tricked into voting Peters-Baker. She sure talked a good spiel when she was running for office. But now we all know, she's soft on crime. The 9ultra shooter should have never had a gun. When is this fool up for re-election? I really hope she reads this blog everyday. If she did sh'e know how this city really feels about her.
