Downtown Kansas City Protesters Claim Police Intimidation Amid Banner Take Down

A minor dust-up today inside the loop wherein, thankfully, nobody was hurt . . .

When protesters first put up the Black Lives Matter banner on the statue outside headquarters, they used tape. They took shelter underneath an overhang outside when it started to rain.

Then, several officers came outside. One officer “snatched” the banner from the statue, which Ferguson called a “volatile act.” Other officers took down signs protesters had hung up on the railing.

Here's more info for subscribers that might or might not be worth going around the paywall . . .

Protest organizer: KC police 'intimidated' peaceful group at headquarters

Protesters faced off with Kansas City police officers on Saturday afternoon in a demonstration at the department's headquarters. Organizer Sheryl Ferguson said they were there to peacefully protest and call for the resignation of Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith. They were met with officers trying to intimidate them, Ferguson said.

Keep your fucking sign off the monument. It's dedicated to men and women who gave their lives for the people of Kansas City.

Which is it: does BLM protesting make women fat, or do mostly fat women become BLM protesters?

The BLM Protesters should spend more of their free time at Planet Fitness.

Did they even take time to read the inscription on the statue that is dedicated to KCPD officers shot and killed in the line of duty.

These idiots do nothing but walk around screaming insanity and looting stores when the opportunity presents itself. They are an embarrassment to both black and white people.

Yes, breaking the law, not respecting others or their property, throwing bricks that injure officers, and resisting arrest are all likely to get you an encounter with the police.
If more people in the black community took those facts into account perhaps there wouldn't be as many excuses for marches, protests, and riots.
Of course, then both they and the others in those neighborhoods would be safer.
When you work so hard looking for trouble, you'll probably find it.
And the rest of civilized society doesn't much care.

After what BLM did to the police and to the city can you blame the police? I surprised the police don't spit in their faces.

Fat Little Niggie went to protest,
Smart Little Niggi stayed home.

she wee-weed herself all the way home!

If the movement wants respect, it has to give respect in return... that stature has deep meaning for thousands... be wise.
