Just another catchy slogan.
And completely meaningless.
Kind of like the notion that black lives matter even as there are over 100 homicides in KCMO at just the mid-point of 2020 and not a single peep from any of the BLM gang and their groupies.
Lots of noise, expense, and damage, but not much of anything accomplished.
You can't beat something with nothing.

They already got outside review of police shootings. Now 100 Feds are looking into unsolved KCMO murders. I'd say they got two birds with one stone.
