ESCALATION: KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS DON'T JUST WANT TO DEFUND POLICE, NOW THEY HOPE TO ABOLISH KCPD!!!



Over the past few weeks we've been talking about the "Defund The Police" movement and its implications for Kansas City.

Whilst the slogan is derided and dismissed by conservatives, some of our progressive friends hoped to clarify the goals of the effort and explain that the move was really about "refocusing" on civic priorities like mental health and social welfare in order to prevent violence within the community.

Even if all of that is hopelessly naive, it seems really nice and clearly comes from a place of love and concern for humankind.

However . . .

LAST NIGHT KANSAS CITY PROTESTERS AMPED UP THEIR RHETORIC AND NOW MAKE THEIR GOALS CRYSTAL CLEAR: THEY WANT TO ABOLISH THE KCPD!!!

This effort isn't about transitions, it's revolutionary and deserves to be considered on its own merits without apologists attempting to water down the idea.

To that end, we grabbed a really informative meme in order to offer a clear vantage of the ABOLISH KCPD MOVEMENT that was on display last night in this town's premier entertainment district as police watch crowds take over on street after the next . . . Checkit:

Do not abolish the department.
Establish a "police no-go zone" from Main St. from the river south to 75th st., from Main St. east to I-435.
Provide no police into that area under any circumstances.
The remainder of the city will be covered by the police.

Give them the Plaza as their "City Center". That will also have no police coverage.

They want the "grand experiment"? Let them have it.

They're called progressives for a reason. Progressively dumber with every demand. They've allready defunded the police by not having jobs and not paying taxes.

It would make more sense to abolish to criminals than the local police department.

Reminds me of something said by someone some thirty years ago on t.v. The saying was that the black man was going the way of an endangered species. I thought at the time like hows this going to play out.

Seems to be heading that way no matter who does the killing - disease, war, bullets etc.

Great! Just don't try to steal our taxes to pay for your fucking storm troopers. You can keep your army out of our autonomous zone too, and we'll keep our army taxes too. I guarantee you bootlicker, we'll find better ways to spend our billions than on your imperial militant thugs.

Oh, 8:20. When you finish freshman sociology let us know. CHAZ is a warlord thug-failure that acts as its own parody.

Much like you. Your 'zone', ignorant communist, would be much the same. Rape, robbery, extortion, murder. Much like the Rise of the Planet of the Apes meets Lord of the Flies, except both of those scenarios are great examples of government compared to the hilarious proposed adolescent failure-state you propose.

And when it's over, when you actually understand what autonomy means, you'll beg for law and order.

Billions? Please. You'll be knifing each other for bags of cheetos in a week.

Defund and abolish the public universities like UMKC because that is where all of this crazy communist manifesto comes from:

1. Empty the Jails - Seriously, you do know there are murderers, rapists, and child molesters in prison ? You want these people roaming around in your autonomous zone?

2. Community Self Governing - You do know this will result in the biggest and most murderous gang taking over your neighborhood?

The Democrat Party has gone totally insance.

Trump sends out stupid tweets but at least he believes in law and order and the tenants of civilization, the Constition, and free enterprise that made our country the economic giant of the world.

Vote for Trump in 2020 to save our suburbs and countryside from this crazy Democrat Party ideology of criminals and gangs taking over our country, looting, arson and anarchy.

Hopefully both parties will have better candidates and platforms in 2024.

Remove the police forces from the streets put law and order into the hands of the people. Then sit back and watch how many black bodies you see in the streets. Sure there will be some white folks but in about the same proportions as an Oreo cookie is when you look at what percentile of it's dark vs white.

Every city is an island that must import all food, medicine...everything needed to sustain life. Nothing comes in unless it's brought in by truck. CDLLIFE.com, a website for professional truckers took a poll asking who would be willing to make deliveries to cities that have defunded their police. 77% said no. Hey, maybe these lardass women that make up three-fourths of this well-funded shitshow will lose weight ! Oh well, none of this really matters to White people who were never naive enough to live within a mile of Browntown. We continue to not only live, but thrive. But that's no surprise is it ? We're White people. It's what we do.

Defund UMKC and the other public universities and the protesting goes away.

UMKC is the nerve center for ANTIFA and BLM.

Mizzou's Columbia campus professors were behind closing the Mizzou campus five years ago and contributing to the Ferguson riots.

Tenured professors have become highly paid dangerous radicals.

The problem is that in many parts of the city you could abolish the police and nobody would notice. They don's come anyway. Perpetrators are not prosecuted. The ones who ARE prosecuted are not incarcerated. So what's the point? Community justice? Oh yes, let's have Joe, who has little or no training or supervision, finish his six pack, get out his gun, and patrol the neighborhood. That'll work! Either that, or be like some of the South American and African countries, where middle class or better neighborhoods hire security at the neighborhood's expense to be adequately protected. It's kind of a bad look all around. I think I'll stay put in my suburban neighborhood and wallow in my white privilege -- and smile and wave at the police officers I see.

The question people should be asking is whether there is a correlation between police funding and violent crime. Does violent crime go down when the police department funding goes down? Or is it the other way around? Even here in KCMO these numbers should be easy to produce and discuss publicly. Look at what the City Council allocated for the KCPD budget for the last 20 years, and compare those numbers to the number of total homicides for the same years. If the budget went up, did crime go up or down. If the budget went down, did the number of total homicides go up or down? The numbers will paint a clear picture.

At only 27% of the Kansas City's population (and under 13% of the Nation's), Black People are not going to be happy with the result if the Police are abolished.

If they think being pulled over and ticketed for "driving while Black" is bad, how will they feel when their entire neighborhood is surrounded by armed vigilante groups that then start tightening the "ring", questioning and disarming everyone after any crime has been committed and executing anyone who resists.

Society has created the Legal System of Courts, Jails and Police to take care of the "dirty jobs" involved in keeping people safe, but if necessary, Society as a whole can deal with the situation.
A state of lawlessness would not be tolerated.

Have you ever been the actual victim of a violent crime? I am guessing your lily white ass hasn't.

Name one thing the police have done for you that you couldn’t do yourself?

Did you need the police to make you go the speed limit the last time you drove?

Did you need the police to sit outside your house to make sure it didn’t get broke into?

Did you need the police to keep your car from being stolen?

Did you need the police to keep you from hitting your significant other?

Did you need the police to make you feel saver eating out, attending a sports game or concert?

You are just programmed to think you need controlled? People want the police to keep “Those people” out of their neighborhoods.

People want the police to have someone to call when their feelings get hurt like so many Karen’s of the world.

Folks stop being ignorant all your life and stop being mind controlled.

DramavilleKC said...

Let's play what will happen with a no police or a very neutered down police.

Every law abiding citizen that works, every business that is insured or has stakeholders will pull out pronto. I will also add in law abiding people that do not work for other reasons.

Protection rackets and organized gangs will fill the void.

The surrounding communities will put up walls and have heavily armed patrols.

You see what is already happening in Seattle. That is just a taste of what life would be like.

Since, you obviously a complete moron, I hope you are. Then come back here and let me know?

That's not accurate 304! Get your facts straight! The K.C.P.D. answers five times the Calls with less than 1,300 officers than in 1968! If the private sector could get the kind of work out of their private sector workers as the K.C.P.D. gets out of its workers they'd layoff employees! Technology hasn't really progressed when it comes to solving personal problems with minutes to do it. Matter of fact the computers just made it easier to dump on stat work on the Patrol Officers so those office admin folks could work about two hours and then go workout and eat lunch!

Hey, are you a moron? There are hundreds of thousands of cars in the metro. You got a PARTIAL description of the car. You NEED a solid description of the driver. That’s why you have insurance.

If you live in KCMO, you live in the 5th most violent city. The 9-1-1 system and the cops are going to be busy! You will be waiting on hold for a response and hours for a cop for a home invasion that has happened. Have you ever had your house dusted for prints. It’s messy AF. And chances are the only prints they’ll find are yours. You got a report to turn in to your insurance company for your claim. That’s pretty much how it works.
