Kansas City Star Risk Exposing Decline Of Influence If KCPD Chief Doesn't Resign

Police Chiefs don't have long career arcs in Kansas City . . . So we're putting a time limit on this one . . . If he makes it to Christmas, the Kansas City Star is no longer a major political influence in the town.

However, a reality check . . .

RIGHT NOW THERE AREN'T ENOUGH VOTES TO REMOVE THE KCPD CHIEF!!!

The politics of the police board could rapidly change . . . But this screed puts the so-called paper of record out on a limb.

Check the overview from our whisper buddies at public radio . . .

Kansas City Star Joins Critics Demanding Police Chief Rick Smith's Resignation

The Kansas City Star has joined a growing chorus of voices calling for the resignation of Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith. In an editorial today, The Star's editorial board said the department is whiter now than it was when he became chief three years ago, and its officers have shot and killed twice as many Black men as it did during the first three years of his predecessor's leadership.

His resignation won’t solve anything you idiot! Give them the world and they will not be satisfied, when you want to riot, any excuse is good as another!

Is that Lucas in the photo, without a mask? Looks like more than half of what I take to be a BLM audience are unmasked as well. Any further questions why the virus is hitting the Black population harder than others>

Not just the Chief of Police. What if Lee’s Summit does not change the name of Todd George Rd? Will the virtue signaling SJWs at the Red Star be able to cope?

Cleaning up Sly and Fortes catastrophic mess is impossible for anyone at this point.

Don't give them a anything as it will never be enough! Do not resign Chief!

Our police never shot a piece of shit that didn't deserve it. Take that to the bank.

Let the feds come in. KC black residents have nothing to lose. If not another record year of murders. If they come in maybe they clean up the streets. If not...more of the same.

If he resigned the KC Scar would still be a propaganda piece of shit.

Has the Star not gone out of business yet?

If the boy blunder were straight he would have been looking the other way and staring a bit at the tasty piece of @ss standing next to him. I guess that proves the rumors.

How long has it been since the commie red Star was right about nothing?

The Star is getting as desperate as the rioters now that it's becoming obvious that NONE of their "demands" are going to be met.
But instead of moving on to actual news or issues that they might actually offer some serious thoughtful responsible proposals about, these clowns are so full of themselves that they now double down.
Racists and slaveholders everywhere they look!
How about changing the names of Jackson and Johnson Counties and tearing down the Indian Mission in Fairway?
And then look for all the other horrors that no one has noticed or said a thing about for decades.
The lemmings of the Star!

Maybe the Star reporters are trying to get in their final hard knocks against politically unaffiliated whites in power or any Republicans before the new management comes in and cleans house. Those seem to be the groups targeted the most by the scumbuckets who work at that rag.

The Hedge Fund boys have invited the Star staff over for dinner. And guess who's on the menu?

When the Star had readership they abused them with unbalanced unsigned editorials. We got tired of being fed their chicken shit.

Now, we're on this side of the paywall having foodfights galore at Tony's basement diner. Guess what, we like it here.

Whoever thought it was a good idea to hire a WHITE guy to run the police department in a mostly BLACK town, was crazy. Rick, hope you have a sweet golden parachute ready for when you quit to "spend more time with your family". And while they're at it, encourage all the WHITE cops to consider doing the same.

KC is mostly White.

KC is not mostly black. It is mostly black and virtue signaling whites who they that they prove their moral superiority by voting for blacks.

Resign why? He's done nothing wrong. Q and JPB continue to LIE about probable cause statements and police shootings. They know they are lying. Destroy a good man and a great dept, as a sacrifice to the BLM terrorists Q is in bed with? How about encouraging the community to cooperate with law enforcement in bringing the criminals to justice? How about acting like a leader and getting behind your PD and Chief? Lucas is a disgrace. Jean Peters Baker is an embarrassment. What kind of a prosecutor opposes building a jail? How does a mayor complain about violence and refuse to facilitate incarceration? Idiots or traitors?
