SHOCK!!! NORTHEAST NEIGHBORHOOD LEADER DEBATES KANSAS CITY POLICE OVER BLOCK PARTY AMID CORONAVIRUS!!!



We've got more to talk about this but for now here's a Northeast debate that's gaining traction but has yet to make the mainstream news.

To wit . .

CHECK NORTHEAST RESIDENT MANNY ABARCA CHALLENGING KCPD ON COMMUNITY OUTREACH CORONVIRUS SAFETY PROTOCOLS!!!

Checkit . . .



"Can @kcpd explain to me why they partnered with organizations outside of this community’s Neighborhood Association, even inviting churches outside the City of KCMO, to have a community event over 10 people without proper social distancing or mask wearing? This conveniently occurred in the neighborhood that called for police accountability weeks prior. The church from the crossroads, (in the blue shirts) and the group outside of KCMO (in the green shirts) rushed in to provide hotdogs, snow cones, bomb pops and bounce houses all during a global pandemic in the neighborhood that called for police accountability. Where disproportionately black and brown children seem to be effected by #COVID19 at dramatically higher rates. I appreciate how the @NortheastNews found the few mask pictures they had taken . . ."

Mr. Abarca then provides pix of the neighborhood party . . .

And then . . .

Response from KCPD:

"Then you're welcome to call the major's office. Though it doesn't provide quite the opportunity for grandstanding on social media, we find face-to-face discussions foster greater understanding than sniping on Twitter. Have a great evening."

Again, there's a lot more to unpack on this one but for now we wanted to ask readers about their first impressions.

Seems like everyone should be worried about proper social distancing.

You're safe, dude, there's no virus just a democratic hoax! Ain't ya heard? I'd go out tonight if I were you! Plandemic! Plandemic! But nevertheless a great answer from @KCPD, it's bullshit to just go whining in social media about every last thing like how awful and violent negroes are, for example, even if that IS true, which it is.

Anytime a “neighborhood leader” is mentioned it’s a person of color ... if this guy was a white blonde chick he would just be called a “Karen”

Oh well ....

Y'all need to understand that Manny has lost every public office or issue that he has run for unless it is unopposed.

Twenty people in Indian Mound agreed for him to be "president" after I stepped off the board, as was the same for me, and the president before me. But only because no one else wants the responsibility of reading emails and planning the meetings. I was always cognizant of this but Manny has delusions of grandeur and thinks it's his mission to push his partisan politics onto others rather than simply provide a forum for discussion and progress.

Alas, Manny has been the least prepared and most under-qualified person I have ever worked with, and he desperately needs people to think he is relevant, which is why he writes letters purporting to speak for 10,000 people when not even all 20 of the people who "voted" for him to be president of Indian Mound agree with him.

Manny does not know how to build coalitions or create solutions to problems which is nuts because he actually went to college and took on debt to learn how to do that, and he works for a congressman where e should be able to help constituents regardless of their politics. However, all he does is call people out, and this includes his own family. He has no goal other than to year people down. Every meeting I had to sit through with him was him bragging about how he "made someone do something" or how someone was terrible at their jobs.

Manny wrote a letter to Northeast News calling out his own dad for not wearing a mask. He calls out Hispanics who support Trump, including his family members on social media. But most despicable; he calls out black folks who don't agree with him.

The evening before Kansas City voted 80/20 to restore the name of The Historic Paseo Boulevard, Manny made a video claiming everyone who voted for Paseo was racist, including black folks.

I mean, you've gotta be a Class A Douchebag to claim you speak for 10,000 people, but how fucked up is it to discredit a black person's opinion because it doesn't reflect your own??

So Manny's little rant about KCPD is for his own glorification, and not for the community. There were more Indian Mound residents attending the Budd Park event in support of KCPD than there are on any given week at an Indian Mound Neighborhood Association meeting. He creates divisiveness in a community that would benefit from folks working together, but he has been humiliated by Rick Smith multiple times, so he rushes to social media because he can get about a dozen likes from some of his Facebook friends who don't even attend his meetings.

One Hispanic woman who used to live in the neighborhood had an ongoing joke with me: "How can Manny claim to speak *for* Hispanics when he can't even speak Spanish?!"

Must be the product of KCPS.
The correct word to use is "affected". Not "effected".

Manny Abarca is a transgender man, right?

Born female, but "identifies" as a man. Still has a woman's face, though he draws that fake beard stubble on it.

Damn Stadler, I heard your bootlipped wife brought home COVID-19 from whatever john she had, and you died.

Ok, not heard. Hoped.

Manny trying to stay relevent and pretending that he actually does something.

Another media whore "activist" and self-appointed "leader" in KCMO.
Just what the clown car needs.
How can so many of these clowns fit into such a little car?
KCMO is the joke of the metro and a sucking chest wound on the entire region.

Nothing new about Manny and the soapbox; but the KC MO Police cannot continue the adversarial role with the community it serves. The police department cannot be selection about who they do or do not work well with.

If you guys want a good laugh, follow @MannyForKC on Twitter.
Currently he's calling out a pastor for coming to Budd Park without being invited, because Manny is "literally the president" of the park. Lol.

KCPS and Indian Mound should disassociate themselves from this clown.

Kids had fun and interacted with the officers safely. That's all that matters to me.

Manny Abarca is an annoying; but he isn't paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to promote community outreach. The KC MO city councilors don't have a monopoly on a vindictive nature; but that isn't the job of the KCMO police department social media resources.

I’ve never heard of Manny Abarka, but he’s getting his ass handed to him on here. And based on the picture, I’d say 1126 might be on to something.
