TKC FRIDAY FACE-OFF!!! JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR CONDEMNS KCPD AMID INDICTMENT!!! WILL TOP COP SMITH SURVIVE ATTACKS FROM MEAN JEAN?!?!



As usual, TKC is forced to break the news whilst other "journalists" merely parrot whatever press release copy they've been tossed.

Meanwhile, the rest of you d-bags don't realize that social media has shadow-banned most boomers, delightful crackpots and everyone else who isn't serving the algorithm . . . But I digress.

A recent indictment is mostly political theater and probably won't help the dead guy or his grieving family.

What's more important for voters, denizens of the discourse and our community of scumbags is the political drama at the crux of the current deadly police shooting debate.

In a nutshell . . .

ATTACKS TARGETING POLICE FROM THE JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR AND MISSOURI DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADER FIT 2020 CAMPAIGN BRANDING PERFECTLY!!!

To be fair . . .

We assume that the intentions of the Jackson County Prosecutor are pure and she's merely doing her courthouse job. Even whilst serving as Missouri Democratic Party Chair, Jean Peters Baker is not at all influenced by her political mission amid a red state election wherein the stakes are high and, if handled properly, the super-minority could make significant gains and take back the Governor's mansion. However, as objective observers suspend disbelief like they were members of fake crowds at sporting events during the pandemic, there is simply no denying the progressive anti-police messaging of the prosecutor is not just opportune but demonstrates a synchronicity so impeccable that, if not planned, should inspire the po-po to start buying lottery tickets given their luck.

Put simply in a less clunky but not quite as fun sentence . . .

Mean Jean waging political war against KCPD lines up perfectly with Democratic Party talking points on police reform. It might not be planned but to deny it is to be willfully naive.



And all of that brings us to a war of words betwixt prosecutor vs. police . . .

The premise . . .

Fox4: Jackson County prosecutor says KCPD asked her not to prosecute detective to help morale

Even better, this exchange should have been the headline and offers a scary preview of this EPIC cowtown clash of the titans. We've highlighted the most important part . . . Checkit:

Jean Peters Baker said she was stonewalled by police in her office’s early efforts to find out more about the case.

She said she requested a probable cause statement in February, two months after Lamb’s death. But she was told by the police department her actions could greatly hurt morale.

“Trust me when I say I wanted to stand at a podium in February, but I couldn’t do that because police simply refused to give me a probable cause statement in this case,” Peters Baker said.

“What I have learned over the past several months is how little influence or reason I hold over that department.”

In a press conference critical of police’s handling of the situation, Peters Baker said she received warnings not to prosecute.

“Warnings have come specifically against me to frankly discourage me from bringing charges in this manner. Here’s what you need to know, those types of statements, warnings, threats have been made to this office,” she said.

“I’ve heard it before, and this is not the first high profile case that I’ve handled. Those threats didn’t work then, and they won’t work now,” she continued.

Get it? Forgive our course reference but this cowtown police debate offers a perfect microcosm of the American argument over law enforcement even if our polite local media want to bury their power play even more subtly and tastefully than hottie news anchor cleavage.



In the final analysis . . .

THE JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR CLAIMS SHE HAS BEEN 'WARNED' AND COERCED BY POLICE!!! IN THIS EPIC FACE-OFF SOMEBODY HAS TO LOSE: WILL IT BE MEAN JEAN OR THE TOP COP?!?

The prosecutor is politically savvy, highly skilled and unafraid to wage a war of words but she's playing for high stakes and could incur outside opposition sparked by her decidedly anti-police rhetoric. Meanwhile, the Chief has never been a dynamic force within his department but instead his methodical and calculated style are indicative of the tremendous authority he wields . . . For now.

Meanwhile, the local homicide count continues to spike at the outset of Summer and the level of discourse and intensifying political theater seems to have little, if any, impact on the bloodbath taking place on Kansas City streets.

Peters-Baker is an incompetent prosecutor and a political hack of the very worst kind.
If residents of KCMO think that having someone like her and the worthless unaccountable "nonprofit" organizations "demanding" the chief be fired running their police department by intimidation of the cowardly KCMO electeds, they will find the city becoming a dystopia even more quickly than it already is.
The safety of the public and the justice system are really terrible elements of civil society to play politics in.
And the local "leaders" have shown what sheep they are by joining the mindless stampede of the most recent national trend.
And over the cliff they all go.
Sadly, taking much of what's left of KCMO with them.

We saw a spoiled kids reaction to not getting what she wanted when she wanted it. What’s her motive in the timing of this indictment? Shameless how the Counties top Attorney desires this to be out in the 6 PM News.... She said many times she is waiting for the Probable Cause statement from the Police but all she gets is threats. Why hasn’t she attempted an indictment before all the craziness started? Ms Peters seems to be playing a game of gotcha with the KCMO Police Department, just like spoiled little kid that didn’t get to do what she wanted when she wanted it. Looks like there is a Deep State problem in City Hall too.

Grand Jury's can be a joke as I am sure this one was. Mean Jean can play the jury to give her what she wants. See it's all a bunch of secret stuff that the public never ever is suppose to hear about as they are all sworn to secrecy. Now Mean Jean will political play this till election time and not take it to trial where she would lose but for now she will be claiming it's a feather in her hat of getting justice for the people. Jean is a sham and Jean needs to be voted out.

Anonymous said...

There is a saying that a prosecutor (even one as incompetent as Mean Jean) can indict a ham sandwich. Jean’s problem is she can’t convict one. And she shouldn’t be able to convict this police detective, given the shooting was justified. Jean is grandstanding for her election and her political position, nothing more, and actually a lot less. She’s the worst prosecutor KC has had in decades and needs to be voted out of office. Hopefully a jury will understand evidence better than this grand jury did, and will acquit the detective... and Jean will be handed her walking papers.

Fuck Off 6:59 what a weak no nothing comment. Okay simple spelling error even spell check won't catch you asshole. In fact you jerk I see it spelled that way a lot and here is a sentence right form a law book, "It's then the jury's duty to gather together, discuss the evidence, and, once the necessary consensus is reached, render a verdict of guilty or not guilty in a given case."

If the police version of hot pursuit and Lamb waving a gun holds up, the shooting will be justified. What then...riots in the streets.

The big 180: prosecutorial immunity is now being turned AGAINST the police.

As Tony points out, the timing is too politically perfect. Cops see that the courts no longer have their backs. Like citizens, they too can be framed by prosecutors or coerced into plea bargains by the threat of long prison terms due to bogus piled-on charges.

Policeman. A Policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.

Gulled statistics wave the fan over the stinkers, underscore instances of dishonesty and brutality because they are “new”. What they really mean is that they are exceptional, unusual, not commonplace.

Buried under the frost is the fact: Less than one-half of one percent of policemen misfit the uniform. That’s a better average than you’d find among clergy!

What is a policeman made of? He, of all men, is once the most needed and the most unwanted. He’s a strangely nameless creature who is “sir” to his face and “fuzz” to his back.

He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.But…If the policeman is neat, he’s conceited; if he’s careless, he’s a bum. If he’s pleasant, he’s flirting;if not, he’s a grouch.

He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make.

But…If he hurries, he’s careless; if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued.

The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn’t hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being “brutal”. If you hit him, he’s a coward. If he hits you, he’s a bully.

A policeman must know everything-and not tell. He must know where all the sin is and not partake.

A policeman must, from a single strand of hair, be able to describe the crime, the weapon and the criminal- and tell you where the criminal is hiding.

But…If he catches the criminal, he’s lucky; if he doesn’t, he’s a dunce. If he gets promoted, he has political pull; if he doesn’t, he’s a dullard. The policeman must chase a bum lead to a dead-end, stake out ten nights to tag one witness who saw it happen-but refused to remember.

The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman.

And, of course, he’d have to be genius….For he will have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.

Admit the reason blacks have run ins with police is due to their violent culture. FBI statistics are not bigoted, blacks really do commit most of the violent crime in this country. There will be no progress until black communities start calling the cops on the corner drug dealer instead of admiring him. There will be no progress until the leaders of the black communities start calling for change amongst themselves and admitting they are the issue and it's them that needs to clean up their acts and behavior in public along with their lifestyles and parenting skills.

No question, her roles as JaCo Prosecutor and head of the state Democratic Party create a big conflict of interest. In the latter role she has to suck up to racial and grievance groups to get their votes. She does so by hopping onto whatever bandwagon they send her way. The current bandwagon is "BLM," "systemic racism," "defund the police," etc. As Prosecutor she is charged to prosecute those charged with criminal actions in aid of making the public safer. However, many of the criminals she is supposed to prosecute are also members of the grievance groups she is sucking up to. Something's got to give. And what happens is she abandons her prosecutor's responsibilities in favor of her political partisanship. Nothing can be done about it. It's Chinatown Jake.

It seems entirely counter-intuitive to me to argue over the people making decisions rather than looking at the underlying issues. If the entire globe is responding by saying they not only stand with the US, but they admit they've ignored the same issue as well, how does it make any sense whatsoever to pretend like Kansas City is somehow immune? I'm white and live at 38th and Wyandotte. My neighborhood was an actual militarized police state during the protests, which it doesn't seem like most of you experienced based on your ridiculous assumptions regarding "riots". I wasn't afraid of any of the protestors, they are rightfully angry over rampant corruption in our city. From a logical standpoint, it seems the rest of the city should be upset about local government/police corruption as well, but all I see in these comments is fear and hatred.

Additionally, their presence in the surrounding neighborhoods had the desired psychological effects on the surrounding community. It pitted neighbor against neighbor and deprived us of sleep for days on end. How about you don't tell me what I've lived through? I watched the watered down versions of what was happening the local news media showed to suburban and rural viewers.
