Thank you blm, you’ve accomplished nothing but mayhem and destruction, put people out of work who now can’t pay their bills like rent or buy food, yup, you people are brilliant. Idiots.

^^^^STFU loser, go grab your shine box and hit the streets bitch!

Only a total retard would support businesses being harassed and shut down such as has happened not only to those in the Plaza area but all over our country. So clean the shit out of your mouth and get that shine box and get busy.

BTW I can prove it's you who posts all day long on here calling people names and so forth. It's more like you are describing yourself than anyone else.

7:16, what is your solution for all of the revenue lost and the bill for all of the protests? Since this city has forced itself to live off of sales taxes, what money are they going to use? And after a solid month of this anti-Trump "movement," and make no mistake, this is about Trump, not George Floyd, you think the federal government is going to bail any city out? On CNN CBS, ABC, NBC, one-by-one, the "stories" are coming out justifying all of this due to long-standing economic and social disparities. And you now have every mayor saying the real troublemakers are from "out of town." By the way, in case you didn't see it, Floyd was Covid-19 positive. One more thing that'll help those idiot cops walk after that Muslim idiot Kieth Ellison screws up prosecuting them. And then the next round of rioting will start. So long, Plaza!

No one is going to want to go to the plaza or anywhere else in the city.

People need to find out about BLM and ANTIFA that they are well funded and trained for violence. This has nothing to do with George Floyd they couldn't care less about him. This is an assault on our country. Find out what is really going on!

Oh Chimpy. We tend to leave you alone anymore because you're so boring. But you are getting smacked around on the daily! Lol

We used to call him Chimpy when he was more entertaining. Constantly seeking negative attention, zero insight, completely sad and predictable. Shitposting is his whole life. So easy to snack around that he's like a practice dummy.

^^And yet here you are professing your love for him. AGAIN. Weird.

It is good that white america is losing wealth due to pandemic and social unrest, couldn't happen to a worst (ungodly) race of people.

You keep posting this. It's short-sighted, generally stupid and racist, but we knew these things about you already.

The best predictor of future success is past success. You wouldn't know anything about this, but the same self-determination and initiative that made 'white America' successful enough for you to live in it as a parasite will make it successful again. Much sooner than suspected. Meanwhile. you'll have your memories of yelling at cops to keep you warm.

Anyway, your little tantrum will lead to nothing but a Trump victory. You will have achieved no economic power or any other kind, and remain a wholly owned slave of Biden & Co. After all, he made this clear last week.

Thanks slave!

Can’t believe many wish Sly James was still in charge.
He would have formed a coalition and never let this happen.
Ferguson never happened here because of Sly.
At Louis Police under city control- foolish.

The KC 10-10-10 Mayor’s learning-on-the -job isn’t going very well.
Plaza won’t return to what it was and just cookie, coffee and nail salons will replace the big gigs.

Guess the voters should have vetted better.
Remorse remorse is KC’s 10-10-10 course

"Isn't going well" is beyond generous optimism.
And just keep in mind that the runner-up in the KCMO mayor's race was Jolie Justus.
Out of almost half a million people, that was the best the little insider "we're all friends here" system could come up with.
Aren't there any adults with some experience, ability, and guts who are willing to spend some time helping to govern their own community?
What an endless joke!

Don't feel sorry for the Plaza merchants as they said they support the protesters and looters.

KCPD risking their lives to protect Plaza stores and same store owners stabbing them in the back.

Plaza stuff is overpriced and same quality or less on what you find at Target. Throw in high crime, rage mobs, and poor parking and there is nothing inviting about the Plaza.

Too bad as used to be a great TGIF destination.
