TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS BETRAYS POLICE AND PUSHES 'LOCAL CONTROL' AFTER #BLACKLIVESMATTER PROTESTS!!!
Our TKC Blog Community warned about the push toward "local control" of the police department at the outset of this month and today the rumor turned into news fact . . .
Context that MSM has left out: Let's not forget that Mayor Q earned an endorsement from the police union and they have VEHEMENTLY opposed local control for years.
Insiders have consistently reminded us that KCMO already has "local control" of KCPD by way of The Board of Police Commissioners. The current proposal is really about "COUNCIL CONTROL" which might be far less popular with residents.
To wit . . .
THE NOVEMBER PUSH FOR KCPD LOCAL CONTROL IS THE BIGGEST POLITICAL BETRAYAL MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS HAS COMMITTED IN HIS CAREER!!!
As he fell to a knee during a recent Black Lives Matter protest, the mayor signed on to the #BlackLivesMatter demands that started with local control of police.
For better or worse, the odds are pretty good that'll a local contorl effort will be successful as KCMO is a reliable Democratic stronghold and the progressive agenda of the Black Lives Matter movement has a great deal of support from residents within city limits.
