Demanding change: KC protest leaders encouraged by swift action on local police control

During a June 5 protest at City Hall, protest leaders gave Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas a list of five demands for change. Lucas signed the list and promised change within the city. Now, about a month later, KMBC 9 News is beginning a five-week series of reports that will take an in-depth look at each demand on that list.

A while back didn't Lucas agree that the "demands" of the "we shouldn't have to pay any rent" crowd would be met?
He's leaving a very long list of people who thought he promised them something and got left holding the bag.
These demands are certainly not going to met by the state and most of them require either legislation or more money.
Dismantling government and civil society will end up eating its very authors.
Sad.

Three minutes of in depth journalism from brain dead reporters. Wow really looking forward to that! Almost as much as to the Star's upcoming series on gun violence.

But we NEED local POLITICAL control of the police department! Just look at the wonders it has done in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, New York, Detroit, Minneapolis, Atlanta, etc., etc., etc.. What could possibly go wrong with local POLITICAL control here in Kansas City, Missouri???

Local control. Now that's funny what is it that they control now that's working? NOTHING. You have a racist city Hall and an idiot for a mayor. But hey if that's what you people want go for it just don't you dare move into the burbs or rural areas when things get even worse. Stay and sleep in your own vomit. We already ran one family out and we can make it real hard on you.

All you defund the police babies are going to be the first ones crying when no one shows up when you call 911! Good luck you'll be needing it.

IF you think KCMO is FUBAR now, just wait till local control happens. The State of Kansas will Demand they stop using the work Kansas and start using Detroit. I just hope the crime wave does not bleed over into Johnson Co where crazy people are not in charge and life is good. I'm locked and loaded if they come over here.
