TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDER: KANSAS CITY 'LOCAL CONTROL' DEMAND FIRST STEP TOWARD DEFUNDING POLICE!!!



This morning we continue coverage and conversation of a movement that every other media outlet in Kansas City is too scared to mention.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY 'DEFUND THE POLICE' DEMANDS ESCALATE AND INSIDERS FEAR "LOCAL CONTROL" COULD BE THE GATEWAY TOWARD THIS GOAL!!!

Here's the word:

"Defunding police is what 'local control' really means. With City Hall governing KCPD, anything is possible and law enforcement would be at the mercy of any whim or "movement" that takes hold of 12th & Oak. Get it straight, Mayor Quinton Lucas has already signed on to the local control movement in view of over 1000 protesters. So now we're talking about police under the authority of a mayor who has spent the last week on his knees before protesters. Sorry, but that shouldn't make anybody feel safe. I agree with the community review board plan and there are reforms that need to happen . . . But let's never forget that switching police to city hall control will fundamentally change KC law enforcement and there's no going back. It's something that deserves to be debated, not just demanded."

Accordingly, here's more info on the movement for both local control and defund the police that KC MSM would rather politely ignore . .

Movement Explained

Black Lives Matter co-founder explains "Defund the police" slogan

Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that growing calls to " defund the police" are not about eliminating police departments, but about reinvesting funds toward "the resources that our communities need."


Prez Trump Attacks Movement

Trump rails against Biden, 'Radical Left Democrats' over movement to defund police

President Trump railed against former Vice President Joe Biden and "radical" Democrats Sunday morning over a recent push to weaken law enforcement in the wake of George Floyd's death. Days after the death of Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died while in police custody after an officer kneeled on his neck, Black Lives Matter said they "call for a national defunding of police," and notable Democratic voices have echoed the sentiment.


Defund Movement Might Be Trap For Democratic Party

Defunding police will lead to Republican victory this year

In the wake of the death of George Floyd, protests have swept the nation, calling for overdue systemic reforms in law enforcement mechanisms. It is clear that immediate action must be taken to reform the police, given that inaction in the last half century has allowed racist and brutal measures to stand.

There is no problem debating this issue. So far I just see more and more people making demands.

I’ll bet big money none of these defund the police idiots could tell you how many murders have been committed in killa shitty this year or any year for that matter, they have no idea how bad crime is either. All they see is a Twitter or instagram moment to brag to their friends that they were there.

When they finally grow up they’ll look back at this time of their life and be ashamed they got suckered into such stupidity.

The city council ALREADY votes to fund the police.
Instead of all the big talking and empty promises, let's see them vote to defund their police department.
It might be good to understand that the residents of the city who need the police department the most are mostly minorities who live in lower-income parts of town.
That's why the major civil rights organizations like the NAACP and SCLC, the most prominent national black leaders at the time, and a huge bi[partisan majority of Congress supported the 1994 Crime Bill.
Revisionist history and amnesia are poor pillars to try to support thoughtful, intelligent and effective public policy.
Lucas has already humiliated himself in public.
Now the public will do the same to him.

Let’s see how fast these cities politicians get sued when peoples businesses and homes get destroyed because they got rid of the police depts. when someone’s child is murdered because there was no police dept. they’ll get sued and it will be big, it will bankrupt cities. The good news is it’s only dimwit run cities that are going to do this and they are all on the brink of bankruptcy anyway so in the end it’s no real loss.

Blacks just ain't feeling the love no matter how much kneeling the weak kneed, limp wristed Mayor does.

Ask any protesters to explain their positions with statistical facts. You will only hear of platitudes and feelings to illicit change due to a few cases wherein the data does not support as being endemic of police anywhere. The leadership is factually silent also.

There seems to be this void that exist for love an approval that is demanded by threat of violence. It's like Fatal Attraction on steroids. When you get past the warm and fuzzy these movements are hate filled racist and total madness.

The refusal to discuss the horrific average of approx 500 black deaths monthly at the hands of other blacks shows Black Lives Don't Matter to this political movement. Sanity please. I and everybody else is tired of my preaching, can I get an Amen?

Rather than defunding the police department perhaps they should look at outsourcing the police to a Johnson County police force. Other cities with inept and corrupt departments have simply abolished them and outsourced the police department.

Property values have decreased 25% or more in Kansas City with the riots, looting, murder and mayhem.

Defund the police and property owners will be lucky to get 50 cents on the dollar.

Property values are based on supply and demand; sellers and buyers and there will be no buyers wanting to invest their hard earned cash in a city run by gangs and a radical like Lucas.

It might be well if the low-information and no-information spokesmen and members of the mob pushing for "local control" of the KCPD took into account that Minneapolis has local control of their police.
The mayor there is the chief law enforcement officer and the chief of police is BLACK.
Managing any organization takes hard work at learning how it works (or doesn"t) at many levels so that oversight and accountability become parts of the system.
The mayor and clowncil in KCMO don't even provide any leadership, direction, oversight, or accountability to fixing streets and sidewalks.
First try electing some serious competent people.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling


It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Guys try to stay focused. Defund is not the same as eliminate. Most of the calls for service from the police are issues that they cant fix. If someone would really look at an officer's day, you will see tons of inefficiencies across the department. For the business folks in here, the cost of investment in police does not provide a good return. They only solve about 7% of property crimes and about 25% of homicides. So instead of spending money for new cars every year, helicopters, numerous SWAT teams and so forth, lets use that money to make our communities safer with other types of professionals.

Exactly 123 years to the day that it was dedicated, the Shaw Memorial, a monument honoring the first all-volunteer black regiment of the Union Army in the Civil War, was defaced by rioters demanding justice for African-Americans.

On May 31, 1897, the monument was erected on Boston Commons to honor the 54th Massachusetts Regiment of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, who bravely attacked Confederate forces at Fort Wagner.

One of the soldiers, Sgt. William Harvey Carney carried the American flag throughout the battle, never dropping it despite being shot 7 times. Carney was the first black American to win the Congressional Medal of Honor for action.

Liz Vizza, the executive director overseeing the public garden where the monument is located, was shocked that a memorial to black soldiers was defaced by rioters. She noted that the black men who fought in the 54th Massachusetts Regiment were not only risking death, but also the potential of being enslaved if they had been captured.

"This monument is considered one of the nation's greatest pieces of public art and the greatest piece to come out of the Civil War," [Vizza] told WBUR-FM.

The backside of the monument honoring Carney and the 270 men who lost their lives in the battle is now covered with profane graffiti reading "ACAB" (All Cops Are B*stards), "F*** 12" (police), "BLM," "No Justice, No Peace," and "Police are Pigs."

The exploits of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment were depicted in the 1989 Hollywood epic, "Glory."

Yeah, DEFUND POLICE. Then take the money you would have spent on the police and use it to build bigger highways leading out of Kansas City (and any city that falls for this stupid idea) to places where people will want to live. Remember "White Flight" to the suburbs? Well it will happen again. Stupid ideas beget unintended consequences. The police are not the problem.

When you are told you have to do something how well to you receive that message that you HAVE to do it? When asked to do something it is different. You have exceeded your goal with the demonstrations. The looters and rioters messed it up for you and now they are pushing the agenda. Forcing more is not going to achieve more. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

Several times a day, police officers are sent to handle emotionally disturbed people with little to no training. Sometimes these people may be trespassing or creating a disturbance. Officers have little options to handle these people and the calls continue day in and day out involving these same people.

By defunding the police and using money to hire more mental health professionals and building mental health facilities, these people can get the treatment they need to keep then out of trouble with the police. This would also reduce calls for service eventually allowing the police to concentrate on crime.

Parking control in the downtown area is nothing more than a revenue generator for the police department and city. Removing most parking restrictions in the area could allow us to eliminate this unit. Regular officers could handle specific parking complaints using existing laws on the books when someone called in a complaint.

Eliminating this money from the police budget and redirecting it to better parking options around the city would improve neighborhoods more than just creating wealth for the city.

947 states a kernel of truth.

"De-fund" doesn't mean no police, it really just means not throwing endless supplies of cash at a problem that clearly can't be solved by cash, alone.

Kansas City has been de-funding the police for decades, already, which may, or may not, have anything to do with your crime problem. No one can prevent murder.

Key Takeaways: Republic vs. Democracy
Republics and democracies both provide a political system in which citizens are represented by elected officials who are sworn to protect their interests.
In a pure democracy, laws are made directly by the voting majority leaving the rights of the minority largely unprotected.
In a republic, laws are made by representatives chosen the people and must comply with a constitution that specifically protects the rights of the minority from the will of the majority.
The United States, while basically a republic, is best described as a “representative democracy.”

If cops nationwide want to have their voices hear, they should engage in a collective work stoppage, be it an outright strike or the "Blue flu." For the first day - until nightfall - the protestors would cheer their great victory.

The ensuing mayhem once the sun set - an extraordinarily violent binge of every crime imaginable - would shut down the "defund" and "dismantle" advocates within 36 hours.

If they de-fund the police departments in Missouri/Kansas, then I am going to sit on State Line Road with many other volunteers, stop and search everyone that looks criminal that is trying to cross into Kansas. After the Police lose their jobs, you think they will disagree with us? Nope. They will let us do our duty. So please de-fund so we can really make a huge dent in crime!

Any of you guys ever done a ride along with Police. I have, once, and in my experience it seemed like an evening spent trying to manufacture incidences out of, honestly, shear boredom. Constantly punching up license plates to see if they could find an excuse to pull someone over. And, yeah, it was primarily brown people who were out of place or somewhere "they didn't belong". Literally, just looking for potential wolves to protect the sheep. A great use of taxpayer funds.

Don't even get me started if you've been robbed, it's not as if they can do anything after the fact. Unless they're there and they witness a guy robbing you, all they are is documentation for an insurance claim. Nothing more, nothing less.

In the U.S., nine unarmed were black men shot by a police officer, while 20 unarmed white men were shot in 2019. Unarmed doesn't necessarily mean they weren't trying to take the officer's gun, or choke or beat them, so these figures might be skewed a bit. Yet, contrast those figures with about 7,000 black men killed in the U.S. by other black men. One category of deaths brings a lot of money to the NACCP, BLM and other groups when it occurs, and the other category doesn't.

Boomer Hater was missing this weekend as he works the weekend shift at the retirement home changing old people's diapers; wiping their ass, tuning their t.v. to Matlock and Maude that he likes to talk about all of the time.

Listen up people, I got word today that all these dimwit cities that want to get rid of their police depts will have to be covered by the counties sheriffs dept and or the state police. The cities have no authority over either one of them so they can’t defund them no matter what. What they haven’t figured out yet is that think they’ll be saving all that money when in fact in kc’s instance Jackson county sheriff’s dept will have to expand and you know what that means, higher taxes for both the county and state, so in the end we still have have the sheriffs and the state to handle all calls but with additional taxes to boot.

Don’t think for one minute kc would stop taxing us for the police, they’ll use that money for developers and other worthless projects.

^^^^That's a good thing! Local control with a Sheriff who is elected.

Lets take 5% of the police funding and create an incentive based program where families who have fathers who stay our of jail and are home supporting the children receive some sort of compensation.

Meanwhile, President Trump hides deep inside the White House bunker surrounded by a Baby Gate. Can't ask for a better leader.

Trump is meeting now with black and white police chiefs at the White House as you misspeak. They are praising him for his support for them and law and order.

Of course Black Lives Matter! But that doesn't mean any change will ever happen. I have worked as a high level corporate executive headhunter for 35 years. Clients will always choose a male (with less skills) over a woman (with more skills). Even if its a woman owned company seeking the candidate! Clients will also always choose a taller male (with less skills) over a shorter male (with many more skills). I have learned that its all about appearance. At first I was so baffled. But over time I see how shallow people are. People think they are open minded - but they are very shallow. They only rely on their eyes, vision, not their other senses. I was shocked as I watched companies hire the wrong person who ruined morale and company sales levels. But the H.R. staff never admitted their hiring mistakes. If your a minority you will be treated poorly. If your a majority your treated normal. Its the shallow person's way of living life, classifying folks and assigning value to them. I read recently that women would rather date an abusive tall man, than a kind short man. Until we can change basic decision making like that, society has little hope.

Raising the retirement age is laughable. The secret stain among HR people and their corporate overlords is don't hire anyone over 50. It's not true in every industry, but it's all too common in most.

Even more shallow than that tree-fiddy. It's all about wealth or appearance thereof. I'm a tall male (used to be fairly athletic) but dirt poor. Getting a date with a chick was tough. They preferred the assholes, or those with money; I was/had neither. In jobs, the well dressed person (who is clearly comfortable in it) gets the edge over someone who looks like a tryhard, that happens to fall to the white male, more frat boy style.

It depends on who you ask. Here's a CNN article:
https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/06/06/us/what-is-defund-police-trnd/index.html
Not abolish the policé, just stop paying them. Got it!
But what kinda leader would really expect their employees to do work (especially police work) for no pay. Defunded doesn't mean no police, but it does.
Weird.

The gun stores here in the metro KC area just had a record day of sales. People are always looking for a reason to take the law into their own hands. Scary.

It's interesting to see BLM, Antifa and the elite wealthy rich banding together against the police. The elite wealthy whites have their own private security guards and gated communities and don't need public police departments; the same as they don't need public schools for their children.

Middle class and working people with families, regardless of ethnicity, support a strong police department and law and order in their neighborhoods free of drug dealers, child molesters, robbers etc. Naturally, no one wants a policeman like the Minneapolis cop who killed George Floyd but 95% of the police officers act professional.

O.J. Simpson did not define all NFL players and the Minneapolis cop doesn't define all policemen but that doesn't fit the media's narrative.

No, the Police Commissioners, appointed by the Governor, are in control of KCPD. Well, they and the FOP.

Byron, keep typing and prove your stupidity. Police spending goes up nearly every year. I don’t support defunding, but I don’t support moronic out-of-staters like you spouting off about things of which you know nothing.

I’ve done a ride along with KCPD as well. We went to a burglary in progress, a car theft, rode down Main Street at 12:30 am on a Saturday night at 90+ mph on an “officer in need of assistance” call, attended to a rape victim who was deaf (an officer fluent in ASL came immediately to the scene to translate), broke up two fights, and that’s all I can remember. But it was an action packed night in Center Zone. Were you up North on your ride along?

"OK Boomer" = the new N-word equivalent phrase that tries to diminish and dehumanize the elderly and make them sound stupid in a “hip” way. Imagine if the people started saying, "OK N****r." Age discrimination and elder abuse are alive and well in America, and these issues are as warped, shameful and wrong as racism.

@ 5:30 - It also helps if you'd shower more than once every ten days, cut your hair didn't have tats all over, wear worn out shoes and hit on women to buy your drinks. It's no wonder a successful man has an advantage over you dirt-bag.
