SHOCK!!! AD HOC HONCHO DEMANDS KCPD CHIEF RESIGN!!! TOP COP DOOMED AFTER KC #BLACKLIVESMATTER RIOTS?!?
Another voice adds to the intensifying cacophony of voices expressing their frustration against the leader of the KCPD.
Accordingly we ask our blog community . . .
SHOULD KCPD CHIEF SMITH RESIGN AMID COMMUNITY OUTCRY IN THE AFTERMATH OF #BLACKLIVESMATTER RIOTING AND CRITICISM OF POLICE RESPONSE?!?
The Chief has already responded that he's not resigning.
Here's tonight's update in the growing controversy . . .
KMBC: There are renewed calls for Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith to step down. This time it comes from the AdHoc Group Against Crime, a local non-profit focused on reducing crime in Kansas City.
"I saw people met with intimidation and it didn't settle well with me," AdHoc Group Against Crime president Damon Daniel said.
Daniel said the department under Smith has solved homicide rates that are too low and insufficient outreach to the black community. Daniel also said there is not enough promotion of black officers within the department.
"We need someone who is more community minded who is willing to put themselves out there, who is open to criticism,” Daniel said.
