Eff that thin blue line horseshit, or "professional courtesy" between law enforcement. Whether its judges siding with officers in plain traffic court regardless of evidence, to cops letting one another go despite egregious speeding, to the DOJ dropping all pursuit of that swamp troll McCabe; that shit has to end. Equal under the law. I don't even necessarily think that McCabe was left off the hook despite blatant violations as part of a partisan effort. Although Dems have been stocking the swamp pond of fed law enforcement agencies for decades as protection of their power while Reps have had their heads in the sand when they come into power pretending those officials are completely unbiased. Guess its becoming very clear now. Maybe some Dem voters not too far into the koolaid will wake up? Not gonna hold my breath.

With the EDC's latest "development plan" coming on the heels of the "surprise" that KCMO taxpayers have to make up a shortfall for the new convention hotel, you have to hope that the pothole filling starts quickly and can get at least a little something done before all the general fund money is gone.
KCMO city hall is little more than an ATM for developers and grifters.
Dig deep, KCMO taxpayers!
