TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS MUST STOP FLIP-FLOPPING ON KANSAS CITY POLICE LOCAL CONTROL!!!



It's time for Mayor Quinton Lucas to pick a side.

There's no way to politic out a difficult decision that threatens to change the course of Kansas City's future irrevocably.

And so, the community needs an answer from Mayor Quinton Lucas. Police also deserve to know where they stand with City Hall

Thankfully, one of the smartest TKC readers made the issue crystal clear and wrote about the mixed messages in no uncertain terms . . . Checkit:

"Mayor Lucas needs to be called out for being weak-kneed and two-faced. Posturing with BLM protesters while pandering to KCPD."

Remember . . .

The Mayor signed on to #BlackLivesMatter demands during a protest on City Hall steps. Local control of KCPD was #1 on that list.

However . . .

This week Mayor Lucas drew ire from supporters for a thank you note to the KCPD which was so cringe-y that Council Lady Katheryn Shields skipped it and earned more political credibility from both police and residents for at least being honest with her reasoning and avoiding the empty publicity stunt.

Accordingly . . .

THE COMMUNITY AND POLICE DESERVE A CLEAR ANSWER FROM MAYOR LUCAS ABOUT LOCAL CONTROL OF KCPD!!!

His non-binding agreement with BLM doesn't ring true if it's followed up by a confessional love letter addressed to police.

Even worse, our local media FAIL to question the mayor on his duplicity and would, seemingly, rather play sycophant or simply lack perspective on this importance of this issue.

Mayor Lucas has needlessly created confusion on "local control" wherein the two sides are clearly defined. There is no middle-ground in this discussion. The future of police in Kansas City and across the nation are now at a critical crossroads and the question of governance is at the crux of the dilemma. The longer the Mayor waits to make his position clear, the less his words matter. As Kansas City suffers historic unrest and record-breaking deadly crime, demands for police accountability start with Mayor Lucas.

Developing . . .

  1. Getting a straight answer out of a politician is a tough job. Getting a law lecturer to speak clearly is probably impossible. Good luck.

    1. doubtful that he'll answer anybody directly. It could end his career either way. Right now it seems like they're just waiting for the whole thing to blow over. But that's not going to happen.

  4. Tony, you are full of shit.

    Q does mot have to stop waffling, nobody can make him stop.

    Police do not deserve to know jack shit about this. They are employees of the public and should NOT be treated as a special political power, you sycophant. Cops can be re-assigned to work for a different entity at any time just like any other employee. Stop worshiping cops, it's a perverted idolatry, mkay?

    The two sides are not clearly defined. St. Louis proves its possible to have local control within the same old power structure as state control.

  9. 839 has great advice...quit worshiping cops, worship the criminal negro thug.

    PS we don't worship cops, in fact they are the only thing preventing whites from lynching the criminals.

  10. Shields is a disgrace, she didn’t earn an ounce of credibility imo. The KCMO Police did an excellent job with the situation they were dealing with. We owe them a Thank You...Shields should be honest enough and strong enough to admit.

  11. Of course we need local POLITICAL control! Just look at the wonders it has done in places like Newark, Detroit, Ferguson, Baltimore, New York, and Minneapolis. What could possibly go wrong?1?

  12. Local control, in practice, means delivering the police force to people who are apologists for black criminality. Do not let that happen.

  13. Place Kathyrn Shields on Grand Boulevard to barricade the street from protestors marching from the Plaza to the Power and Light District.

    Probelm solved and yes you are welcome.

  14. While the mayor and the members of the city council were at the protests interacting with the citizens at the protest, the chief of police was visiting the neighborhoods up north of the river; the white neighborhoods up north of the river. The police chief is a racist. Unless you are a WASP the police Chief Risk Smith isn't interested.

    1. So, just based on that, he is now a racist?

      Was he wearing a Klan hood at this visit too?

      Wow, how damning!! I am presuming this is even true and you are not making false claims.

  17. TOP PHOTO -- THE 3 FACES OF QUINTON

    Quinton White attended The Barstow School, Washington University, and Cornell Law thanks to the generosity and support of White institutional racism.

    Quinton Black has an apartment in the 18th & Vine neighborhood, has a dysfunctional extended family, and never met his biological father.

    Jane is Quinton's closeted homosexual self.

    Dissociative identity disorder is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct personality identities. Each may have a unique name, personal history, and characteristics.

  20. What is going to happen here is the same thing that happened in Atlanta.
    I have looked at several different videos of the shooting which shows the victim didn’t just grab the taser and run, nor was he pulled out of the vehicle to have a “tussle”. He brought himself out, they conducted the sobriety tests, and he was very polite and accommodating, even when they informed him, very politely, that they were going to have to arrest him for intoxication. He didn’t start fighting back until they went to put the cuffs on him. Then he fought off "two trained men", gained a weapon, and as he’s running..."turns and fires the taser at the officer."

    From the audio following the incident, where the officer is being questioned by his black superior, it seems the taser struck him, because the superior asked if he was alright. The officer, who is still shaky from the adrenaline of the fight, then inquires how the young man is doing. The superior doesn’t know but promises to look into it for the officer’s sake. Everything in the full video indicates this man did "NOT" like having to discharge his firearm in self-defense. What’s more, the black superior, without promoting, tells the officer that “they” (the police) are going to take care of him.

    Then the mayor (And I can see Lucas doing such) comes along...pushes a politically incendiary interpretation of the events COUNTER to the video evidence...and the chief of police is so disgusted with the political play that she steps out. The officer not only was forced to defend himself from a suspect who decided he wasn’t going to be arrested for breaking the law and endangering others...but then was FIRED in a political maneuver contrary to his basic rights as a citizen (police are still citizens and have a right to defend themselves from any weapon being used against them) and contrary to the assurances of his department.

    Time for the entire Atlanta PD to step off the job for a month. Let the mayor see what her city is going to look like with such a notable percentage of “citizenry” that thinks they shouldn’t be held accountable to the law. And when the smoke clears and the body bags run out...let the citizens sue the mayor for theft (property damage), and charge her as an accomplice for murder and domestic terrorism.

    1. The reality is most cops never discharge their firearm during the course of their career.

      This is a fact that people like to ignore.

      Excellent summary of the situation BTW.

  21. Political influence will worsen with local control.

    Teresa Loar has already abused influence over KCPD to hurt political opponents.

    In her previous term on Council, Loar tried to get a future potential candidate arrested on phony, false charges. A corrupt major at North Patrol, KCPD, was influenced to persecute an honest community activist. Loar and Rick Moore failed in this attempt.

    Many officers were outraged at this abuse by Loar.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Loar further abused KCPD with her John TV that punished people before a trial and conviction of a crime.
    John TV violated the US Constitution. Kay Barnes and others enabled this outrage of punishment before conviction. Star had no comment on Killa City rape of 8th Amendment. John TV was undercover policewomen soliciting men in party districts with lines such as "Do you want to party?" Teresa Loar pushed this to establish her credentials as a crime fighter. US Constitution be damned. The ACLU played a role in opposing this travesty.

  25. BLM thinks local control of police will improve their lives, it will not. BLM looks like a bunch of fools. Makes more sense if their first demand is a marijuana tax ear marked to fund trade schools, housing assistance, and building materials.

  27. 11:22, I suppose the police could just have taken his car keys and let him walk home like the man suggested. I am a law enforcement supporter, but not every confrontation has to end in an arrest. George Floyd - the cops knew who he was, they must have known that the situation was volatile, he was not an immediate danger to anyone - maybe they could just have put the questioning and arrest off until the next day.

    On the other hand, I do think that people who call the police to take care of their volatile and possibly violent family members should not be too surprised when harm happens.

  28. all marijuana tax revenue shall fund mental health services, drug rehab, small business loans, trade schools .....

  30. I would love to see the immediate result of no law and order anywhere to be found in this city.

  31. if Lucas is playing it cool, that seems fine.

    hope he's told the police to be cool, too, and they abide.

    contrary to what some may say, cool and de-escalated is the best approach.

    that applies to everything but dealing with violent criminals.

  35. I would not put it past the Council to do something really stupid relating to LCPD. If they do, you can expect a mass exodus of your tax paying resident to Johnson County.
    BTW, how about the new surface for Shawnee Mission Parkway. Have you driven on 39rh Street west of Broadway recently! B
