KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST ULTIMATUM TO MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS: PICK A SIDE!!! WHAT SHOULD HE DO?!?
With no pride of authorship . . . Back in June our blog community noticed Mayor Q flip-flopping on law enforcement issues and we wrote the following:
"It's time for Mayor Quinton Lucas to pick a side."
Better than that . . . Out TKC blog community doubted that kneeling with protesters would win the Mayor favor for very long if he didn't ultimately meet their demands.
Accordingly . . .
This passage from a recent note put the young Mayor in the hot seat . . .
"How long will you lie to us, Mayor Quinton Lucas? You feigned ignorance when we first learned of Operation Legend, but the receipts show you INVITED them. Our lives are at stake.
"You admitted you "should have been more circumspect" of the federal occupation. If so, why have you still not denounced it? You're prioritizing the defense of your lie over the safety of the community.
"You insist that you have no control over the situation—this is a manipulative LIE. We asked you to fund our lives, you welcomed more police into our Black neighborhoods. It’s now your responsibility to end this state violence. Lives in multiple cities hang in the balance. Will you continue to stand with Trump’s federal occupation, or will you stand with the people? With this letter the people have spoken—PICK A SIDE."
It goes on from there but, as we noted previously, this is one of the most militant and vehement ultimatums we've seen confronting City Hall in more than 20 years.
Given that this predicament might require more than a social media skill . . .
KNEELING TO PROTESTERS IS NO LONGER GOOD ENOUGH!!! GIVEN THE LATEST ACTIVIST DEMANDS: HOW SHOULD MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS RESPOND?!?!
You decide . . .
