All you had to say was forte and everybody just laughed at them. Why is forte suddenly so interested in kc’s murder and crime problem, he had his chance to do something and all he did was turn off his phone and disappear for weeks on end only to get a $500,000 payday for doing nothing.

Did the term "Blackhole" come up because that is what kc has become under dem control.

KC has a crime problem but you keeping voting the same radicals in every election. Jean peters Baker just let gangs destroy KC and said she won't press charges. Lucas your mayor did the same thing. So you don't have any right to bitch about crime or have any type of crime fighting organization. Keep your mouth shut and deal with what you have created.

The Democrat's solution to the crime problem is to defund the police
dept. and send out social workers when a violent crime is in progress.

Lucas sitting in on this total waste of time evokes visions of Rome burning as Nero fiddles. He is only one of several more than disappointing "leaders" sitting in their little Zoom rooms dispensing worthless advice and subtle hate messages to keep the masses riled up. Nothing to see here, move along sheeple.
