Yes crime has reached an all time high and we aren't putting up with it anymore. We screamed and the Gov listened. Quinton Lucas and the chief of police need to go to jail something isn't right about those riots and the release of the people who robbed stores. Can't tell anyone that they didn't know about it and the delivery of bricks! THEY KNEW!!!!!

You haven't broken the murder record, so crime isn't at an "all time high".

Your mayor, & police chief, do NOT need to go to jail.

But, by all means, please vent harmlessly on this blog.

@7:40 is partly right.
Lucas wanted the governor to call a special session of the legislature so that the mayor could try to once again deflect blame for the violence and murders in KCMO. That approach would be expensive for the taxpayers, completely miss the point, and accomplish nothing.
Parson played Lucas like a cheap fiddle and went to the feds. In fact he talked to Trump in person at the White House.
The boy mayor now is desperately trying to explain to the "leaders" in the black community how he could ever let this happen. The feds' arrival changes the narrative from social services and blaming others to where it belongs and might actually have a positive effect.
Lucas loses both ways.
It's a shame KCMO can't attract any adults to run for political office.
