KANSAS CITY INSIDER WARNING!!! DEADLY VIOLENCE WORSENS WHILST ACTIVISTS ARGUE OVER FUNDING & LUCRATIVE POLICE BRUTALITY LAWSUIT VICTORIES!!!
The good intentions of social justice protesters shouldn't distract from the diabolically acquisitive motivations of so many professional activists and local power players.
To wit and according to top echelon 12th & Oak insiders . . .
THE RECENT KANSAS CITY POLICE BOARD MEETING WAS NOTHING MORE THAN AN ACTIVIST MONEY GRAB WITH LITTLE CONVERSATION ABOUT A PLAN TO REDUCE THE HISTORIC PACE OF LOCAL MURDERS!!!
Here's the word . . .
"So we're going to get yet another anti-crime group thanks to the riots with some pretty decent salaries for those who have enough connections to move to the front of the line. The money isn't great but the only job requirement is a face or a cardboard sign. You also shouldn't be surprised to see even more lawsuits against KCPD given the numbers of activist attorneys leading the moment. There's a class-action in the works that could actually pay some of the protesters who were arrested thanks to that silly pardon granted by council . . . It's just a feeding frenzy right now and solving crime or any of the recent neighborhood shootings is the last thing on anyone's mind. I'm sure there are a lot of people who want to change the system but there are way more who are just looking at this crisis as a way to snag a check."
Accordingly . . .
Officially, Kansas City now stands at 99 murders so far in 2020 amid a 35% uptick in homicides this year over last. Whilst there are a great many ideas for funding changes to hold police accountable, there's still no plan and no work on a plan to confront a worsening epidemic of deadly violence.
To make matters worse, Kansas City homicides in the second half of the year typically increase according to the trend line over the past 5 years. Worsening financial hardship sparked by coronavirus and continued civil unrest threaten to incite more local anger further aggravating an already dangerous situation.
