Activists attempt to disrupt Kansas City eviction court after coronavirus moratorium lifted

Two activists were arrested during a protest aimed at shutting down eviction proceedings at the Jackson County courthouse in Kansas City, Missouri, a tenants rights group said Thursday. The protest, which took place in courtrooms, over teleconference calls and in a rally outside the courthouse, occurred nearly two months after an eviction moratorium put in place because of the coronavirus pandemic was lifted.

Which just goes to show what these entertainment events are really all about and how skewed the media is in what "news" it covers.
Make signs.
March around.
Make demands.
Take selfies and hope the local TV "reporters" show up.
Run home to see if YOU were on TV!
Repeat.
Endlessly.

The pussyfooting Judges didn't have the balls to do anything. But when it's one on one they bully people.

Main stream news NBC is so biased that they didn't even report that the goal of the action was achieved:
Jackson County Eviction Court was
SHUT DOWN
for at least the entire day.

Funny that in 2020 we allow the deadbeats, fruits and nuts, freaks, lowlifes, murderers and druggies control what we "need" to do for them. Maybe they need to go back and learn about doing for selves.

With the 600 dollars a week extra in unemployment for the last 5 months or so these people are making more money than they ever have. But maybe pay your rent instead of buying booze drugs cars etc. Most didnt do this because they know when the 600 ends they can play the poor me im in trouble cause the pandemic. Get a clue. Everyone has taken a hit from this in one way or another. Its time to take responsibility for your own actions. If you didnt pay your rent I bet your landlord still paid the mortgage. So get out and move on.

Once I can evict them (the courts ARE backed up), I'm doubling the rent. This is ultimately good for landlords. Keep on protesting, freeloaders.

7:28 It wasn't shut down. Disrupted, but not shut down. I had a case heard. So you are lying. That's what the left days. They lie.

Will these folks also favor a ban on foreclosures as incomeless landlords default?
