TKC READER SEYZ: GRASSROOTS PROTEST IN SUPPORT OF KANSAS CITY POLICE DESERVES MORE ATTENTION!!!
Reader reaction that we think deserves a moment of consideration . . .
"Hey, TKC . . . Thank you for linking it but I think we need another post about the protest downtown yesterday. Great turnout, we totally outnumbered the counter-protest and PROVED that Kansas City supports police and can do so without vandalism or destruction. I feel like everyone but KBMC glossed over the coverage. Just wanted to see if you'd be willing to repost . . . Thanks."
Fair enough . . .
However, instead of just rehashing the issue . . . Here's a thoughtful and comprehensive write-up of the protest from a sympathetic community news outlet:
NORTHEAST NEWS: Back the Blue rally meets protesters at KCPD HQ
Money line . . .
"Waving American and thin blue line flags, colorful posters and donning t-shirts in support of the police, those rallying behind the department chanted their support for Smith, Operation Legend and “all lives matter.”
"They stood in front of the memorial to fallen officers that was graffitied during recent protests, but has since been cleaned."
