TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDERS FEAR 'FERGUSON EFFECT' AFTER #BLACKLIVESMATTER PROTESTS AND VENDETTA AGAINST TOP COP!!!



This morning we examine a controversial theory that both police and progressives dispute in spite of scientific study confirming the trend.

And, if nothing, our TKC Blog community is "ALL ABOUT" science.

To wit and a great many thanks to TOP ECHELON insiders and constant blog readers . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WARN THAT "THE FERGUSON EFFECT" AND DE-POLICING THREATENS TO WORSEN THE LOCAL HOMICIDE COUNT AMID CULTURE WAR ACTIVISTS FLEXING ON CITY HALL!!!

For those who don't remember, KC homicides started trending upward after Ferguson riots . . . Here's the premise:

The Ferguson effect is the theory that increased distrust of police following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has led to an increased crime rate (or sometimes increased murder rate) in major U.S. cities. The mechanism usually suggested is that police have less vigorous enforcement in situations that might lead to a backlash."

Again, so many locals like to deny this risk and tacit admission that police are only human, but research confirms it.

Checkit:

"More than three-quarters of U.S. law enforcement officers say they are reluctant to use force when necessary, and nearly as many — 72% — say they or their colleagues are more reluctant to stop and question people who seem suspicious as a result of increased scrutiny of police, according to a study published by the Pew Research Center."

Even better, an author we've featured several time on the blog, Dr. Ernest Evans shared his research on de-policing in his recent defense of the KCPD Chief

"When police officers accused of racist misconduct are denied even a pretense of due process, out of sheer self-survival they stop doing their jobs in black neighborhoods. Nature abhors a vacuum, so the gangs, criminal elements and drug dealers take over those neighborhoods and unleash a reign of terror on the residents . . . Controversies (between police and community) resulted in more than a thousand additional homicides, most of them black men, women and children."

Throughout recent civil unrest in KCMO, the Chief has been slow to talk with media and the public BUT when he does make time for questions, his answers are comprehensive.


A telling perspective that might have been lost in the mix but confirms our thesis . . .


A brief aside . . . For all those who doubt de-policing right now, while there is a dispute about an Atlanta police "BLUE FLU" this morning . . . There's no denying that a recent social media clip of a lady cop crying over her delayed McDonald's order has elicited ire from across the globe and shown the personal toll of American law enforcement under attack . . . Real talk, she is derided as "Officer Karen" by bully social media but more sympathetic souls understand the pain of waiting on an Egg McMuffin, even in a world filled with suffering.


And so, the debate about the future of KCPD Chief Smith, local control and de-funding the police will continue today without very much insight about unintended consequences and the danger confronting urban core communities after City Hall rejects law enforcement, casts our fate to the wind and, inadvertently, puts criminals in charge of Kansas City neighborhoods.

It's hard to imagine things getting worse with the level of homicides we have right now, but I'm sure it's possible.

Dex said...

why should the star or activists care about crime in Kansas City. They do better, sell more papers and have more business when things are bad. There is an incentive to seem more people in their own neighborhoods kill one another. The only problem is that innocent people are often caught in the crossfire.

Michael Brown was shot by the police AFTER he punched the officer in the face through the open window in the vehicle and then grabbed the cop's gun to the point that it discharged IN THE CAR.
Then, after briefly walking away, he charged the officer who shot him in self defense.
Brown was over six feet tall, in his late teens, and weighed almost 200 pounds. His behavior and actions don't exactly meet any reasonable definition of "unarmed".
The Ferguson "narrative" is about as close to a made-up piece of fantasy as any good fiction writer could possibly produce.
Anything based on the notion that what happened in Ferguson provides any guidance for today should be rejected out of hand.
Self-serving revisionist history at its very best.

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.

The recently-elected mayor of Ferguson is a black woman.
She's not transgender or a lesbian, but the SJWs can't have EVERYTHING they might wish for.
Let's see if she can turn straw into gold.
But identity politics doesn't seem to work too well AFTER members of the politically correct groups manage to get elected.
KCMO is Exhibit A.

The DOJ report regarding the shooting of Michael Brown/Ferguson is readily available online . . . but few people want to read it. It completely exonerates the cop (Darren Wilson), utterly refutes the media myths (such as "hands up/don't shoot") and is extensive in both its science and witness interviews.

Most pertinent . . . it was compiled by Obama's DOJ, under the direct supervision of Eric Holder. You will NEVER hear anything about that in the media, because it spoils the narrative that is being utilized during the current riots/protests.

This sort of fictional, anti-police smear campaign - blasted out 24/7 by both legacy and social media - is what cops have to contend with. Of course the police will back off of any actions that could unfairly destroy their lives.

Who wouldn't? They should all walk off the job.

The result will be more deaths (black and white), more property destruction, and more chaos. But . . . neither the media nor Democrat pols care about that, so long as they perceive an increase in the hatred of Trump and/or Republicans.

To them . . . black deaths are just the price of possibly winning some elections.

Cops have little recourse but to shut down. Fear of being charged for just doing their job has to be front and center. Try to find another city to work for, or transfer to an area that respects lawful behavior. Cops can’t strike, but they can use sick time or park their cars.

Can anyone blame them?

Citizens will have to physically protect their own homes and families. We will be forced to have vigilante groups in our neighborhoods for protection which is never a good thing.

War is just murder on a large scale. So if we call it civil murder it does not capture the scale of what I likely coming. What is happening in Chaz is not going to create a utopia, but a Lord of Flies type nightmare. People are not going to have any choice but to defend themselves from that.

Anonymous said...

Watch the videos of what cops were subjected to during these protests and ask yourself what you would do if you were a police officer. they put up with the vulgar language, insults, spitting, and screaming just inches from their face for days. Black cops being told they're traitors. White cops being told they're racists. Indiscriminate froze water bottles and rocks being thrown at them. THEN, when a police officer is assaulted and they pull out the assailant the media pounces on that video clip as abuse against a peaceful protest.

My favorite is the Democrats trying to pull some of the legal protections that police officers get. Who supports that effort? Umm ---- wait for it ---- you can't make this up ------ "civil rights activists" (plaintiff attorneys) who get a 40% cut of the multi million dollar settlements. Wonder why everyone has their phones out once a police officer arrives? They want to get "PAID" in the chance that that an officer makes the slightest perceived mistake that can be broadcast to a jury of their peers when they sue.

TOP PHOTO -- THE ANARCHISTS AMONG US

The politically Liberal/Progressive, the SJW's, the corporate media, The KC Star editorial board, KCUR, KCPT, Black Lives Matter, groups like the Urban League and AdHoc, and the millions of sheeple roaming the field of society with liquified brains, want to bring forth anarchy to the USA.

I thought driving while intoxicated was a crime.
I thought resisting arrest was a crime.
I thought assault on a police officer was a crime.
I thought pointing a weapon and firing at a police officer was a crime.

All of the people listed above believe that a person of color, who is so intoxicated that: 1) he doesn't know where he is, 2) how he got to his location, 3) denies driving the vehicle that the video shows he was driving, 4) denies being passed out behind the wheel, 5) contradicts himself multiple times, 6) fails a field sobriety test, 7) fails a breathalyzer, 8) resists arrest, 9) assaults 2 police officers, 10) steals one officer's Taser, 11) fleeing and eluding 12) turns, points, and fires a weapon at a police officer in pursuit.
They think he did NOTHING wrong. That people of color don't have to obey the law, it's optional for them. That law enforcement officers should stand-down, abandon their training, let criminals go about their way and endanger other drivers on the road, and all law-abiding citizens who pay the taxes to live in a civil society.

FACTS: Rayshard Brooks would be alive today if he didn't violate the law and then resist arrest.
George Floyd would be alive today if he didn't violate the law and then resist arrest.
Eric Garner would be alive today if he didn't violate the law and then resist arrest.
Michael Brown would be alive today if he didn't violate the law and then resist arrest.
WHY CAN'T BLACK MEN OBEY THE LAW? AND WHY ARE MANY WHITE PEOPLE MAKING EXCUSES FOR THE VIOLENT BLACK MALE???

The true sheep are those buying the bipartisan rhetoric regardless of side. Anyone who begins a statement with, "well, if the Democratics," OR "well, if the Republicans," OR any version of either, including whatever side you believe the media is working for, is not making a valid point. Instead, they're regurgitating political rhetoric spoon fed to them by a machine. History is there for a reason, sheeple, and arguing over one person or five people or twenty people whose situations ended poorly is not only absurd but a massive waste of time. If you truly love your country, start by looking objectively at the farcical circus it is.

Both CNN and FOX are slanted. One left and one right. Media is simply not to be trusted as factual but rather whatever their bias is towards they will take things out of context or manufacture fake news.

It is time for new, additional political parties to be created. There is nothing in the constitution that says the United States must be a two-party system. Both the Democrats and Republicans have deserted middle-class America. Most people don't like either Biden or Trump, nor Pelosi or McConnell.

There does need to be a new brand of conservatism that appeals to all ethnicities.

Atlanta is suffering a shortage of officers on duty. The same could happen here in Kansas City.

Many might not remember when the KCFD went on strike but this city had fires going everywhere. And I don't mean little ones I mean huge ass ones. If PD gets the Blue Flu or stops answering their radios watch this city burn and be robbed blind.

Anonymous said...

@Bitter Truth - such a narrow focus as to the problems in police departments. The entire system is corrupt from city level to capitol hill. Perhaps an entire system overhaul is exactly what's needed. I'm in no way saying violence is the answer, but focusing on smaller issues like this page loves to do, rather than finally admitting EVERYTHING is broken, will get us nowhere. Even if we have trouble recognizing police brutality is a smaller issue than rampant corruption in our government that we readily allow, we really need to at least TRY to see it's all tied together.

Michael Brown is always a brilliant example of a faux cause. Caught on Video assaulting a store owner just minutes before his attacking a cop. Yet he could not have attacked the cop because Michael was non violent according to the Parents that did not raise him. Even better was them lying that Michael wasn't the guy on the tape. Of course the media and his criminal community painted him as just finishing making chocolate chip cookies with his grandma after church services and saving twenty elderly from a burning building shit. Same day Michael Brown got shot by a cop a white guy got shot near Ottawa , Kansas.. not one peep, not one poor me, not one lie about his actions.

Yes, rulers worldwide have manipulated ignorant patriotic people to do their dirty work, white trash and black people alike. Trouble is, and you might understand if you could remotely comprehend historical context, black people are targeted because it's EASY. It's easy for the masses to be controlled through fear, and black/brown skin is easily identifiable even from a distance. Also, your racism is GLARING. Black people don't work or pay taxes? They don't feed themselves? A bunch of hicks who believe they're living in the gosh dern big city cuz it's skeery is all that's on display in this thread.

Get this:

I want to live in peace with Black people AND I support the KCPD - Most of whom are really good people who dedicate their entire career to protecting ALL communities.

I wonder when people will realize:
- most of the protesters in KC, and especially ones that caused violence, are white and come from middle to upper class families and homes
- many of the above may live in the metro area but not KCMO proper
- those going to be most hurt are those already disadvantaged
- those that hate Trump and Russia seem to love the hammer and sickle of China and the old USSR
- this is no longer about George Floyd but a chance to get what was tried in the Occupy protest days
- the narrative of all (insert group here) being racist is wrong, it is not racist to disagree or even for a white cop to arrest a minority person when appropriate
- the city council in KCMO was elected with a voter turnout of about 30%, the fault of what we are stuck with lies with the 70% that cannot be bothered to exercise their most important freedom. They will be surprised when other freedoms go missing.

@8:14 pm Kinda sounds like maybe your city's corrupt? Maybe you should look into that instead of believing communism is an actual threat. How many times must we live through this setup, while the still-lagging-behind, nice-minded midwest is focused on the same bullshit you've been fed since the Cold War?

@7:55 "that permits them into their societies?" You're making us look even more pathetic!! What's being taught in our suburban/rural schools?

I just wish every colored person here in the US that thinks they’re so put upon would get a one-way ticket to Africa. Even when they’re in jail here (which is often) it’s like a 5-star hotel compared to living in a mud hut, chucking spears and wearing a loincloth. From slavery to today, they’ve been taken care of and supported by white folks from cradle to grave. They should be more grateful.

I have several black friends (mostly former Marines) that I love and would trust with my children. I think most Americans could say the same thing. But there are many others who seem to glorify criminality.
I thínk W.E,B. DuBois was onto something when he wrote about "The Talented Tenth".

Karma has come back to hit KCPD right between the eyes. LOL.

@9:33pm That definitely mirrors the feeling of the 54 African countries who called upon the UN to launch a full scale human rights investigation on the United States.

@10:36 Declaring several black friends whom you love and pointing out their difference from the "others" is the equivalent of the slaveowner (cracker - meaning WHIPcracker, not his color) choosing who's fit to be in the house, the yard, or in the field.

Join the 21st century Kansas City! You've all been lied to, and you're STILL eating it up.

@1422
So, there are no criminals? Or, I should just blindly trust the criminals as I do the law abiding citizens? Or are you saying there is no difference?
