Meanwhile, for those who can sneak past the newspaper's get-rich-quick scheme . . . Here's the editorial board slap fighting with the right-wing police union leader who is getting worse with his media strategy since he discovered a comfortable bubble on Facebook. Read more:

KC police officers renting trailers to dodge residency rules - who thought that was OK?

News that some Kansas City police officers try to skirt the department's residency requirement should shock every taxpayer. The stunning claim came Tuesday - not from a critic of the department, or a politician, but from Brad Lemon, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, who testified before the Board of Police Commissioners.

Proving once again that the correct answer to any question is the exact opposite of what The Star believes.

The residency requirement is idiotic, and serves only to limit the quality and quantity of applicants. Arguments in favor of it are based more upon hyperbole and faux-emotional appeal than logic, fact, or reality.

They should live in the city so their kids can be educated in the world renowned KCPS and then they can take advantage of KC's low tax rate. How wonderful.

The notion that cops who live within the city limits will be better cops than those who don't isn't based on anything other than a whim.

Hats off to the cops and firemen who do this it's brilliant and I don't blame them.

Fuck the Star FBI Agents, ATF, Secret Service other Police Departments
do not require this stupid policy. As long as you are at work on time it should be a private family matter. Deputy Chief lived in rural Clay County for years Channel 5 followed her back and forth in a police car NO ONE DID SHIT about it.

Maybe spend the Departments time fighting crime and reducing homicide's DUH !

We would be much better off without out of town mercenaries. There had a lot of abuse and blowback from that situation.

The Fire Dept. has the residency requirement so that they can influence their union members who to vote for in local elections. I am sure its the same reason for the police Dept as well.
