HUNDREDS OF #BLACKLIVESMATTER PROTESTERS MARCH ON CITY HALL STEPS!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR Q BENDS KNEE AGAIN & SIGNS LIST OF DEMANDS!!!



Protest over the death of George Floyd continued today as crowded of protesters descended upon City Hall.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS DIDN'T JUST BOW TO THE ARMY OF ACTIVISTS, YET AGAIN HE KNEELED AND SIGNED THEIR PLEDGE FOR CHANGE!!!

Their demands:

1. Local control of the KCPD
2. Body Cameras for all officers
3. A community review board

That first one is a point of controversy as authorities have continually expressed their concern of political influence at City Hall thwarting law enforcement. However, many insiders see so-called "local control" as an inevitability.

Meanwhile . . .

The Mayor earned a great deal of support from the crowd along with a few critical questions. He look at least an hour to speak with protesters and listen to their concerns.



Witnesses of the scene call it "tense" but peaceful. The protesters made a circle around the 12th & Oak square today and also voiced complaints in front of the police department and Jackson County Courthouse.

More than half of the protesters were wearing masks to help prevent the spread of coronavirus but social distancing that was promised by organizers didn't seem possible amid the sizable crowd.

The Mayor is willing to listen to concerns and spending his time talking with the people. That is a good thing and shows he is a true leader.

Dude is humble. There's no denying that. Most men in their 30s wouldn't continually take a knee.

Were the papers a formal declaration of surrender?

He sure hasn't listened to small business people the last two months, guess next time we should just protest and make him sign our demands to reopen.....now we know the REAL way to get action in this town, just skip elections and march!

Mayor McDrinkerson virtue signals, surrenders, kneels, and bends over like nobody's business! Make sure the cameras are ready!

No organization is a good judge of its own performance. Nothing wrong with an independent review board. Body cameras have been proven a good idea and protect cops and citizens from each other. Local control is stupid. KCMO can't even fix the roads or pick up the trash.

On a nationwide basis, the way the protests and riots have occurred reminds me of the Arab Spring. Though the people in every one of the affected countries claimed to seek freedoms and democracy, they were in fact little more than useful idiots. The forces that ginned them up - predominantly authoritarian and extremist Muslim majority - allowed "the people" to fight for them and bring about regime change.

The result . . . not democracy or freedom. The protesters received the very short-term benefit of sticking it to those they viewed as their oppressors . . . and shortly thereafter were under the iron fist of far worse oppressors.

The protests, in the end, succeeded in creating a Syrian civil war, an Iraq insurgency that was followed by civil war, the birth of Isis, civil war in Libya, civil war in Yemen, and a bloody coup in Egypt.

The "people" got squat . . . the Muslim theocrats (and a couple of sociopathic dictators) did quite well.

Same process is playing out here.

Cut to the Police budget and have more community services.

Protest gatherings are now seen as being linked to looting. Its a negative event. Please donate money to a lobbists, write your congressman etc. At this point any protest is viewed as a tie up of police resources and tax dollars. People on the plaza need to work. Roads must be opened for drivers. Protests are no longer effective

The protesters deserve to be heard. They are doing the right thing. They are winning this struggle. KC supports them!

Do they understand the diligence, quick decision-making, and hard work required for "local control" of the police ? How many of them are even functional enough to control their eating habits ? Their spending ? Their monkey-ass children ? The punch lines to this elaborate joke just keep on coming !

Fuck no to local control. This was a choreographed stunt. A shame people are willing to be used.

Actually no, they do make people feel safe. Without them who will protect the ghetto? Not the fatasses in the useless community organizations. Not the fake grifter reverends. Are you gonna go down and stop the violence? Sign up!

Nah. You'll run your mouth about police and hold a sign maybe. How brave! Sing it, Che Guevara!

Grow up.

And now we know the real reaon behind the protests. There's a faction that has been trying to get local police control for some time now. They are now using this situation to demand it. The protest message is legit, but the majority of ops are not bad, and its too bad people don't realize how much they are being used to further someone else's political agenda. Local control is a horrible idea for reasons already stated here.

Anonymous said...

The protest movement is being used as a patsy by the city council with their demands for local control of the KCPD. The council wants control of the KCPD pension fund, the only one in the city they don't control and the only one that isn't perpetually underfunded.

Watch the video of the 76 year old man in Buffalo ASSAULTED by police and then seriously consider if you really believe this is a black vs. white issue. It's an us vs. them issue, and the "us" is the citizenry of this country of all races, and the "them" is the expanding police state forces who don't care about the rights of the citizenry and operate with near impunity.

The original mandate of a civil police force was to maintain order thru enforcement of LAW, not executive fiat, and to use force at any level only as a means of last resort to prevent physical harm, NOT because orders aren't being followed. That poor old guy was a threat to no one, and was ASSAULTED because the officers didn't like him confronting their authority to clear a peaceful assembly, an authority with no basis in LAW.

Yogi Berra said...

Two members of the Buffalo riot squad were suspended without pay and all 57 members of the squad resigned out of "disgust" because they were ordered to clear the area after curfew and that's what they were doing when Mr "lifetime activist" fell down and went "boom". Just another shitshow. These mob tantrums only occur in places where they're allowed to occur.

Local control is the way to go!

Per the reporter whose crew filmed the incident... "A line of officers marched through, and the man, who Desmond said did not appear to be a protester, approached the officers. He walked a little bit, was standing there, and was hit with a club as far as I can tell," Desmond said.

It's obvious in the video, and has been backed up by statements from the city's police commissioner, that the man posed no threat. ANY physical assault when a threat does not exist is against the law, even for the police. By law they are not allowed enforce commands via physical force, that must be reserved for physical threats.

Sorry, you may want to check the video again.

But what you don't seem to be thinking clearly about is that the main danger to black men is not racism or instances of police brutality that are being cynically hijacked for political reasons.

It's black men.

Springheel said...

Well that's it. I bend to cowardice. I rebuke all I have ever posted. I was brainwashed and full of a hate that I know see as wrong. If Soren Petro has chosen to cave-- at one time the last voice left that stood for truth--then we are all really fucked- and that means all dissenting voices with only proper opinions will occupy the cells once held by murderous punks. Let Kyler Yust and Trayvon Martin be the voice of reason that leads the new sinners against the old ones. I will bow down and give all the gold I slaved my life for to the new flesh, though they only spouted their breath for it. I already lost 60% of my old homes worth preserving the peace by fleeing from their God. Now I realize as a "white" man that I deserve it. Petro has finally come around and, and I hope he will make the same sacrifice as me. I denounce any truth I stated in any forum of the last 15 yrs. Only the lies will I stand by. Fuck law and order and fuck the "white" race.

The George Floyd example is an even worse case than that of the old man of illegal force being used. Even accepting that Floyd resisted (which is in debate due to other videos), and that the police knew of his violent record (which they likely didn't during the incident), he obviously posed no further threat while lying face down and cuffed. For almost nine minutes after any physical threat was neutralized, he was held in a physically dangerous position in which the chance of injury was well documented.

You can argue that the BLM ideology makes little sense when black crime rates are so high, and can argue that looting by some weakens any argument, but no reasonable person can argue that what was done to George Floyd amounts to murder at the hands of an increasingly militarized police force.

I didn’t see a murder. I saw a criminal resist and was unable to handle all the drugs in his system.

More than one truth can be held as accurate, the insistance that only one truth exists is the sign of weak logic.

Yes, the largest threat to black men is other black men. The statistics indicate that is a truth. But that truth does not negate the truth that police violence against black men is higher than their proportion of the population... or heck, the truth that any unwarranted violence against people of any race is unacceptable from the police, a group that by training and authority is rightly held to a higher standard.

Anonymous said...

There is a reason that keeping a cuffed suspect on his stomach is not allowed by most police forces (including Minneapolis'), and a reason that most departments also ban submission techniques that involve extended force to the neck. That officer violated multiple prohibitions and did so knowing the physical dangers posed. Further, for almost three minutes after another officer announced that he couldn't find a pulse, the officer maintained the dangerous techniques and rendered no aid.

How can any reasonable person see anything other than murder?

Local control for KC said...

^^^^

True.

Some people say the officers were following the policy. They were wrong. The police disobeyed the rules and that's why there are murder charges.

That sounds like the king of peckerwood logic right there. Appoint him your leader and you too can aspire to heights as great as a mudroom addition to your trailer.

Anonymous said...

Good lesson on logic, but unnecessary as I didn't make an exclusive proposition of truth.

Let's tackle your own weak logic problem. If police violence against black men is proportionally greater, what is the cause? Might one possible factor be proportionally greater police contact? Or that black men commit a much higher proportion of crime? Simply assuming racism on the part of police (many of whom are black) would also seem weak logic if logical at all.

And-logic again, sorry-you infer the character of all police behavior from a few well publicized cases. Of course unwarranted violence is unacceptable. It happens to all races and should be dealt with appropriately.

Point stands; it's not a matter of exclusivity but proportion. There is great hue and cry over the comparatively rare phenomenon of 'unwarranted police violence', and very little outrage over what amounts to black on black genocide.

Yep. And even Rush Limbaugh was outraged by it. Few disagree that what happened was wrong, and due process is already underway.

But you're right. BLM is simply an anti-police flash mob and has been completely compromised by Antifa and common criminals.

How convenient. While Q is down on one knee maybe he can find a dick to suck.

The superannuated leftie in Buffalo was a frequent participant in protests. He knew well what the risks were of getting in the cops' way, and he accepted them. The shove by the cops was a minimal effort to get him out of the way. Too bad, like other leftists he is unbalanced, so he fell. He's not a victim. Just a poster boy.

Among the profiteers of BLM is the the usual characters, Al Sharpton and BenCrumpcom. This movement certainly has legs but no real brains. The bestowing of sainthood on this gentle non violent Ghandi was complete with church organ for effect with standing amend and for the cameras. What an unchallenged circus.

One must ask why all the love and tears for this violent criminal drug abuser? The eulogy and media coverage completely omitted the truth about George Floyd just as BLM completely ignores the true enemy. BLACK MEN.

The Nations Blacks alone kill more blacks every weekend than police kill in a year for whatever reasons, justified or not. Why does this not matter?

They want local control of the police department? Is that because the local control model has worked so well in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, New York, and Minneapolis? Let’s stop and think about this a bit more folks. Local control will not improve the quality of police service in Kansas City.
