Dead-Tree Media Promotes Demand For KCPD Chief Departure But Is There Any Support To Oust Top Cop Outside Of #BlackLivesMatter Movement???

Again we notice the newspaper giving attempting to flex their political influence BUT other than protesters we haven't noticed any widespread "momentum" demanding the departure of the top cop. Check the link tease and you decide . . .

KC police are out of control. Chief Rick Smith must resign now, says Urban League CEO

In August 2017, after being sworn in as Kansas City's new police chief, Rick Smith said he had three main goals: Set up department employees for success, reduce crime and build effective community partnerships. Unless Smith has different definitions for the words success, reduce and build, he has failed to deliver on his goals.

The Urban League has zero credibility. It is a ghetto organization that fails to hold its “urban” people accountable for any urban problems like high crime rates or their almost 100% illiteracy.

Beyond using Kansas City MO as a cash cow KCPD succeeds at nothing (with the exception of harassing people on social media). No good target with the exception of the police chief Rick Smith. He is a failure and a racists so no value in keeping him around. The Northland city councilors need to pay attention to the environment or they will be considered racist also.

The Urban League has declined in recent years. They are really trying to harm Kansas City at this moment. Writing articles in the failing Kansas City Star newspaper accelerates the League’s decline. Sorry to see this desperate act for relevancy.

Gwen is an absolute nut job. There are policies prohibiting shooting into a vehicle unless their life is in direct danger.

The department policy does not allow for a chokehold at all. They do teach the LVNR, and regardless of public sentiment it’s incredibly safe. Problem is that it doesn’t fit the narrative. Don’t let BLM rename something just because they want to. A Ford is a Ford and a Toyota is still a Toyota. Renaming them doesn’t change how they perform.

There IS a policy requiring officers to report bad behavior, and it’s reported constantly.

Sorry Gwen, you are just plain wrong on this and unfortunately you know it. You have been told over and over you are wrong. This makes you a liar, time you get called it for what you are. A fucking grifter. You are mad you don’t have your fingers in the police pie anymore. Be honest with everyone, Forte funneled money out of the department and to social programs and now that flow of cash has been cut off you are throwing a pre-school fit.

KCPD needs new leadership.

Chief Smith is doing an extraordinary job in an incredibly difficult job. When you see efforts to remove him, you get an excellent idea of what local control would be like. A political nightmare.

Gwen Grant is absolutely on a power trip as head of Urban League. I hope all of these companies that belong to the Urban League trying to make them feel good come to their sense and stop supporting this bitch, the Urban League and her agenda. I am not a racist and I support equality not superiority (white or black). She needs to go as she brings nothing positive to the conversation.
The Urban League has done nothing to stop black on black murder in this city and for Gwen it is how many inches of newspaper space and minutes of KCPT she can get. She and UL do not reach a large audience, not the "PLaya" she wants.

Bullshit.

So what she is suggesting is if a black guy jumps out of his car with an AK 47 at a traffic stop the police should kneel, sing kumbaya, then offer to wash his feet.

Local Control is the only way for Kansas City.
State control is not working and does not hear the voice of the people.

They live out their entire lives, as liberals, on a hairpin turn. The revolution is always tomorrow. If they happen to be doctrinaire liberals for seventy or eighty years, they spend all that time on the bend of the paper clip, constantly waiting for their chains to be unshackled, tomorrow. It must be a terrible existence.

To anyone who sees the whole world the way the Mayfly sees it, toppling a statue must seem natural. It is the ultimate flash-in-the-pan communications medium. A year from now, there won’t be anything there; will anyone remember the statue got toppled? Or that there was a statue there at all?

I want Gwen around, she makes me laugh! It's always hysterical to see which wigs she's going to have on! LMAO

Gwen Grant has been offering her opinions for years even as the Urban League is best known for raising money by shaking down corporations and paying her a ridiculous six-figure salary for accomplishing nothing for anyone but herself.
If you talk with regular folks in the black community you're hard-pressed to find ANYBODY who has the faintest idea of what the Urban League even does.
As long as people like this are "recognized" as leaders of the black community by cowardly members of "the establishment" like the fools at the Star, there's no chance at all for improving the conditions of the east side and the folks who have the misfortune to live there.
Sad.

When she can get her people under control then maybe I might give her dumb psycho ass an ounce of credit, blaming everybody else, (whitey) isn’t going to work anymore.

Everybody knows who and what the problem is, it’s murderous blacks and they have nobody to blame but themselves.

If it wasn’t for the city giving the urban league millions of dollars a year and paying her a really nice salary would she be able to hold a real job? I doubt it, she wouldn’t last a week in the real world, that’s why she’s blaming the chief for everything when she is in fact part of the problem. This is a desperate attempt to keep the gravy train going.

The KCPD are the only sane, responsible individuals in this crazy place called Kansas City.

What a fucking zoo. Your own mayor is leading looting and riots.

Anonymous said...

yes and then dreamworld ends and people began asking the criminals to stop the crime , not blame cops for it.

Hey Gwen, I've seen the videos and I have a question, maybe a few...When the looters and rioters broke into H&M and The North Face and Helzbergs where were you during that time, one of the looters kinda looked like you. I never did see any cops go into those store and steal anything, did you? And if BLM is so important then why don't they and the Urban League ever do anything to stop black on black murder on the East side? Oh, too expensive. Well surely you offer rewards to get information about the criminals, right? NO???? OH, too expensive too. So what do UL and you do? How about some facts on how UL spends it's money, including salaries? Where do you live Gwen, Oh Mission Hills?

Gwen Grant is a liar with a hate-filled racist agenda. She can barely hide her contempt for white people. I watched her on Ruckus last week. Every time someone else spoke (all whites) and the camera was on her she rolled her eyes. She could care less about bridging the race gap here or anywhere else. If that happened her little group would become irrelevant and her gravy train would be derailed.

GWEN GRANT DOESN'T KNOW JACK SQUAT

Grant is one single individual, with her own biased viewpoint, nothing more.

She calls herself the CEO of the KC Chapter of the Urban League. This means NOTHING! The national Urban League is dependent upon federal taxpayer handouts, and is simply a special interest group which serves as a paycheck provider for a small number of those holding management positions.

In KCMO, the Urban League exists to solicit donations from the corporate/business community and then issue an annual report claiming every year that Black residents are faring poorly in all measured aspects of life. They actually accomplish extremely little every year, but that's not really Grant's objective. She has found her little niche whereby she collects a paycheck, doesn't have to do much, isn't accountable, yet gets to parade around Ruckus, the KC Star, community fundraisers, and civic meetings as the imaginary leader of a constituency that doesn't exist.

If you doubt this, please name 3 things that the KC Urban League accomplished in the last 12 months that is unique to their organization (is not a redundant service already provided by municipal/state/federal agencies).

I could incorporate a group next week called the Waldo League, appoint myself President and CEO, and be on the same footing as Gwen Grant. Do you think the Star will publish my editorials? Maybe I should self-identify as a biracial Black/Native American transgender woman fighting to abolish the police, bullying, and micro-aggressions? Hey! I should run for Congress! It pays well and you don't have to do anything.

So fucking what? Who cares what they will be considered by BLM and sjw assholes? Not me.

We need local control of the police.

And why would corporations write large checks to support Gwen Grant and her utterly ineffectual nonprofit which is mostly just a platform for her to spread her racism and egotism?
Because they can either pony up $25K or so, or
They can risk a ginned-up racial discrimination law suit that will end up costing $100K+.
Easy choice.
Being extorted and shaken down isn't pretty, but it does make more sense if you have the responsibility for your company's resources.
A page right out of good 'ole Jesse Jackson's handbook.

Everyone has comments but you need to take it to the polls. That's where change is made. My opinion would be to oust this Mayor and prosecutor, but it's futile. Vote people!!
