SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS AND FAITH COMMUNITY LEADERS DEMAND RESIGNATION OF POLICE CHIEF SMITH!!!



Sadly, it seems that a "unity march" scheduled for this afternoon might not help to resolve a political vendetta targeting Kansas City's top cop.

Here's an inevitability and the start of a grassroots movement against local authorities after critics question police tactics during recent #BlackLivesMatter protest on the County Club Plaza that started peacefully but ended with a KCPD cruiser burned, police officers pelted with water bottles, businesses robbed and looted whilst shops REMAIN CLOSED for five days . . .

KCTV5: Urban League of Kansas City, NAACP local chapter, MORE2 call for resignation of KCPD Chief

KCPD: Groups call for local control of KCPD, chief's resignation

Fox4: Dozens of urban clergy demand changes for KCPD

KMBC: 3 groups call for KC police chief to resign or be fired

Deets:

"The group said in the conference that Chief Smith lacks competency and compassion. They went on to highlight that the department is not turning over probable cause statements and therefore make it difficult for Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker to hold officers accountable."

Over the past few days there has been an avalanche of criticism targeting KCPD Chief Smith via social media . . . So far the Kansas City Star is the only local news outlet to sign onto the opprobrium via editorial hidden behind their paywall.

Make no mistake, if the Chief is ousted: So-called "local control" for KCPD would be an inevitability in accordance with activist and urban demands.

I can only hope he cashes out with $800,000 like the last chief.

Why wasn't their any protest over that? Seems like it would have cost taxpayers more than a few canisters of tear gas and cans of pepper spray.

isn't local control a legal can of worms?

^^^ Yes.

But Stl did it two years ago. KC is the last hold out.

can someone please explain why local control would make a substantive difference?

Mayor Lucas needs to resign.

They want a black chief who will follow the marching orders of the urban league, more2, the naacp and the black "ministers". No thanks.

Rick Smith is HOT!
He can come and live with me. I'll take care of him.

Why don't the "Activist" Leaders and Black Preachers offer to resign if Chief Smith does? Up the ante to put more pressure on him.

And if they claim he should resign because he can't keep his Officers in line, they also need to resign because they let their "Rent-A-Mobs" get out of control for four days.
After all, fair is fair.

Get rid of that pussy and all his buddies he promoted.

The riots disguised as protests cannot cover up the fact of who does the vast majority of the shootings and killings in this city and this country.

24 in Chicago in one weekend. 75 to date in KC. Black on black. What we sure as hell don't need is kiss ass cops, mayors and prosecutors.

Kansas City racists want a white-hating racist cop to provide cover for the lawless element that is taking over KC. The current chief may choose to leave to go somewhere where a law enforcement professional would be more appreciated but it will be to KC’s detriment.

5:00 is 100% correct, this has nothing to do with him not doing a good job.

5:13 I totally agree, we need that dementia ridden the cleave to resign too, he’s the number one ring leader of the black mafia.

He must be doing a good job if the fat fake revs and the worthless anti crime groups want him gone.

The cops backed off after Ferguson and the murder rate went up along with all other black crimes. Wait til this over reaction settles. The black communities will be war zones amoung themselves. Good help honest poor blacks.

Where are all the Asians when you need a crime rate ?

The Mayor should resign, typical politician, talks out of 2 sides of his mouth.

Don't be fooled, the Mayor has ultimate authority to tell override the Chief in how he handles things. Yes, the PD is state controlled but the mayor is an ex-officio member of the board.

Chief Smith I knew 20+ years ago, he's a good, competent police officer and administrator.

What the the clergy and other groups don't like is that the cops respond to riots and do their job. If the black businesses are getting burned up they'd be screaming for help.

Then the Star has a front page story about this protester who got the rubber bullet. People, they don't shoot these things at peaceful protests. Where is the outrage by these groups of the organized effort to riot by outside groups.

Stash of bricks, bats,, other harmful material. Burning up police cars, breaking windows. You have a right to protest, you do not have the right to cause damage, injure people or throw frozen water bottles.

The peaceful protesters message has been lost

Child-mayor Lucas just learned what you would have thought he already knew from teaching college students.
Once "activists" and others with no responsibilities but lots of demands get the taste of cowardice, there is no end to their demands.
Keep in mind that these are the same people who allow 150+ homicides to occur in KCMO in THEIR OWN COMMUNITY without them saying a word.
And the same people who have so much respect for the public that they forced the cowardly city council to rename Paseo without any attempt at involving even the residents who live along that street. The voters overwhelmingly rejected that bullying.
And they are the same people who constantly accuse the police of misbehavior without ever being honest about the kinds of behaviors that cause troublemakers to get into the bad places they do.
It's the sound of one hand clapping.
And the conscious ignorance continues to destroy the neighborhoods of the good folks in the black community.
Pandering to the mob has destroyed any claim to legitimate governance on Lucas' part. His credibility is gone with the vast majority of the KCMO voting public.
A sad pitiful lame duck with three years to go.

What we are seeing in democrat controlled cities is mob rule. Let the Mayor resign first.

The Chief is doing a good job and they didn't like the fact that the Chief couldn't be bossed around!

Hey you guys, we'd better respond positively to the latest black tantrum!

The local activist group just needs something to keep them at the forefront of the conversation. The protests, which have been largely peaceful, are organic and haven't needed them to lead. This is scary for groups that fundraise off of being in the news.

This is interesting, a cop was stabbed around six o’clock tonight at 9th and grand, can’t wait to find out what idiot did this.

Translation: We demand a scapegoat for the failure of our families and communities. We refuse to examine our lifestyle choices, family structure, or parenting. We take no responsibility for our murderous pidgin rape and murder culture despite easily available statistics that paint the sad picture clearly. In short, we absolutely refuse any form of adult responsibility.

Yes, as perpetual victims we demand the lowest tribalism as civic policy. And if we don't get it we'll start a riot.

Go ahead and make jokes @8:30, but the unspoken problem of discrimination by the Gay and Political Communities against Closeted Heterosexuals is becoming worse and worse every year.

What they want is a black chief to be a puppet to their needs like Forte did. Forte was quick to toss officers under the bus and was a disaster Smith is doing fine, making hard decisions and needs to stay.

maybe they should stab him and then piss on him if they want him gone so bad.
