KANSAS CITY #BLACKLIVES MATTER PROTESTERS SMASH GLASS IN WESTPORT, LAUNCH WATER BOTTLES AT POLICE AND MARCH INTO THE NIGHT AMID RISING AMERICAN CIVIL UNREST OVER POLICE KILLING GEORGE FLOYD!!!



A peaceful Kansas City protest against police brutality quickly turned violent after dark and during a march throughout Midtown.

The rundown . . .

A white dude who allegedly showed up to the protest with a rifle started a ruckus as fighting broke out betwixt protesters and police moved in . . .

Protesters marching through Westport broke windows at the Ale House at the corner of Archibald and Broadway.

Throughout the night, protesters threw water bottles at each other and the police.

Eventually, KCPD used pepper spray to "encourage" protesters to disperse.

Overview from KK:

“After throwing rock and bottles, breaking a few business windows and smashing 4 police cars an unlawful assembly was declared at around 1 am. Pepper spray was used and the last 50 or so non-lawful protesters were dispersed. No looting. 5 arrests."

Around the 4 in the AM Midtown erupted in a spate of gunfire with dozens of shot echoing through streets.

More than anything, here's the dispute we're seeing among denizens of the local discourse in the aftermath of the protest: Progressives cheer the destruction and right-wingers denying the importance of the upheaval and protest.

Either way . . .

MAKE NO MISTAKE: THIS KANSAS CITY PROTEST WAS ANYTHING BUT PEACEFUL AND UPCOMING DEMONSTRATIONS RISK MORE VIOLENCE AND DESTRUCTION!!!

Here's the early morning response from Mayor Quinton Lucas attempting to tone down the chaos across Midtown last night:

"After a tough night in many cities across our country, I want to thank the many of you who made your voices heard peacefully last night and this morning in Kansas City. As always, I’ll review what your city can do better—tomorrow and long after."

A shout out to KCPD:

"I also want to thank the women and men of @kcpolice who maintained a safe forum in our city for many voices to be heard. I expect us all to continue in our work this weekend and beyond: to grieve, to speak, and to find justice for all in our community."

Further reading starting with KCMO and then a look at the bigger picture . . .

"Please, please, I can't breathe, officer," a man pleads, his wrists handcuffed behind his back, his face ground into the pavement. The police officer continues to press his knee into the man's neck. The man, 46-year-old George Floyd, died later that day. Floyd was black; the cop, white.


Prez Trump Military Powers Considered Amid Worsening Unrest

Trump is unlikely to deploy military in Minneapolis unrest, but has the authority to do so

I think I will move back to the cabin in the woods where the only things creeping around at night is four legged animals feeding. Where the farmers in the area are known and thought to shoot first ask questions later then feed the victims/evidence to the hogs. Crime is very low because the Sheriff might be an hour away so lock and load carries out any justice needed. The hood rats avoid those kind of areas.

Not even a fucking Pandemic could hold the spotlight for very long against the black agendas. If World War Three were to start, CNN would have breaking news on a White on Black incident in BFE and cover it 24/7. As usual for your convenience all the narratives would be fully formed and explained complete with political and celebrity endorsements. Haven't we been down this road before with Ferguson and Covington boys? Get the feeling when an event occurs the script kicks in and plays out until the real facts are revealed? Rush to judgement, always, have to get all the rioting in until the truth throws a wet blanket on the fireworks.

Isn't there any other races on the planet and in the USA besides whites and Blacks. Christ I am tired of worrying about the black experience from the beginning of time to current day. When police have to interact with criminals (Floyd has an extensive criminal record) bad outcomes can happen. If the criminal is under the influence there is a higher risk of a bad outcome. There should have been no reference to race. It was a police on suspect encounter. Anything more is as George Carlin said "It's all bullshit and bad for ya". Peace.

Just the facts Ma'am said...

A "Statement of Probable Cause" of the death of George Floyd has been released by the City of Minneapolis, and it concludes that Floyd's death was due to underlying health conditions, not strangulation.

"The autopsy revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation," the statement reads, according to CNN.

"Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death."

Unfortunately in situations like this no one is going to get the truth because everyone has an agenda. The fact is that this man is still dead and would not have been had the police handled the situation differently. Someone has to take the blame for that or the whole country will go up in flames, so these cops are toast. But it won't stop it happening again.

10:44 AM. Floyd was a criminal. His behaviors put him at high risk for lifestyle bad outcomes. Mix that with police encounters with criminal behaviors and the risk soars higher. Unfortunately a perfect storm put him in that position under the knee that DID NOT CHOKE HIM. If you play on the highway don't blame the semi that flattens your stupid ass.

10:38 every week in football season more people on piled on worse than George was and live to talk about it. His restraint maybe wasn't the total cause of death, but could have helped it along. What I have not seen is some really good footage of what took place prior to the need officers all felt was needed to restrict Floyd's movements. I truly think something is missing here. Body cam footage creates more questions than answers. Something escalated what happened here. Not sure it was cops who did it maybe they did but as we all know for every action there is a reaction. Did George really piss theses cops off that bad? What could he have done to do so? Remember we are not talking about one person here but four adult males wearing badges that are suppose to stay cool headed and for the most part it appears on the body cams they are. Then something changed and the whole incident went down the crapper. Not saying the cops are innocent by any means but man a whole lot of wrong happened here some how.

There is more. It does not make sense knowing that this is being recorded in plain view of the public that a cop would outright murder someone. Since he was not choked the pressure applied was not sufficient to kill. He was however retrained for some reason yet to be determined. Rush to judgement, AGAIN?

Hey 10:44 This is Rufus in Frogville. As a white person, if redneck Cletus down the street who has a long criminal record gets himself killed with any kind of encounter with cops to aliens, I could give a shit. If I wanted a poster boy to spearhead a movement I would look for someone with no criminal record. Is a long criminal record the norm in the black community? I have spent my entire life trying to reduce my risk of bad outcomes to zero by avoiding encounters with the police. These people put their selves at risk all the time by their past and current behaviors. We all know that but the media and activist tell us different every time. I blame media, activist and politicians who could if they would stop this endless loop of rushing to judgement and the consequences that follow.

The Truth Regarding Police Shooting Blacks Vs Whites
Again, I don't think any decent human being doubts that the recent death of George Floyd was anything short of tragic. I sincerely hope that the psychopathic cop gets the punishment that he clearly deserves. However, when the actual statistics are revealed, this continuing narrative that the police are senselessly shooting (and/or killing) more black people than white people, doesn't add up.

Here is the actual data taken from 2017:

In 2017, 62% of the US population was white, and 59% of all violent crimes were committed by whites, which is 3% LESS than the representative white population.

In 2017, 12% of the US population was black, and yet 38% of all violent crimes were committed by blacks, which is MORE than three times the representative black population.

In 2017, MORE than twice the number of white people were shot and killed by police than blacks, despite the fact that blacks were significantly over-represented in terms of being arrested and committing virtually every type of crime.

Police brutality and unnecessary force needs to end for ALL races, and yet all we are hearing and seeing is blatant, intentional divisiveness by perpetuating the myth that most white people are privileged, evil and racist. This struggle will never end unless we see through the lies. We need to come together to defeat these issues, otherwise we're done for good as a nation.

Anonymous said...

The BLM protests in these situations are based on the rawest emotions brought on by false narratives, misdirection and as in the case of Floyd extremely bad optics. We are then told what to believe. Any challenge is met with shout downs, intimidation and violence. The facts must be ignored at all cost.

Ever seen a fookin western ? Ever seen "Tombstone" ? Rememember only the criminals complain about their "human rights". If you are old enough, you know what pisses off a pathological liar or con artist is not believing their lies. Their next step is outright violence justified by your lack of belief, in their eyes. Perhaps the media recognizes this, and chooses to go along with the narrative-to preserve the peace. But we all know that would just be kickin the can down the road. Media is incapable of telling the truth bout anything, they know that a cop killing a black man represents 1 in 100,000 of black murder victims- 90,000 of them being victims of their own black brothers. God help us.

Police officers are sometimes killing white people too for questionable reasons, like the teenager quickly backing out of the garage of his home in Johnson County a few years ago. The mother couldn't believe the police shot him after she called them to come. Human beings are flawed, something them severely, so you get flawed people in all walks of life. This officer is guilty of killing George Floyd and should spend a long time in jail. If you watch the video and think he didn't cause or at least contribute greatly to the death, you're both blind and stupid.
