Kansas City Council Lady Melissa Robinson On KCPD: Community Has Lost All Confidence In The Department



The 3rd District Council lady who proposed local control effort to no avail is lashing out at local police . . .

Council Lady Melissa Robinson on recent indictment of KCPD sergeant:

"This behavior is protected& not appropriately disciplined by KCPD that the community has lost all confidence in the department, it's leadership, its governance and accountability/OCC process. As an elected, I will continue to work to seek reform immediately."

Interestingly, the newspaper reports that she's also directing her fundraising efforts in response to this strident criticism . . .

"Who's ready to return their FOP blood money?"

Her initiative celebrated via social media . . .

"Melissa Robinson, who represents the Third District, said Saturday that she would donate the money the Metro Organization for Racial and Economic Equity - MORE2.

"The decision came after she and other council members were challenged on social media for accepting donations from the police union, which has defended a Kansas City police sergeant indicted Friday for felony third-degree assault. Sgt. Matthew T. Neal, 40, is accused of assaulting a 15-year-old boy and leaving him with several broken teeth, bruising and a gash on his head."

Strangely, responding to that level of criticism presents a new trend for council and might dash hopes to work with law enforcement amid a federal crackdown and stalled effort to offer voters a referendum on local control.

Did it ever occur to her that perhaps the KCPD has lost confidence in a community to behave like civilized human beings?

funny, the confidence in her is even lower than her council colleagues!!

Funny thing is, Ms. Robinson, I've been a member of this Community or 56 years, and I have FAR more confidence in the Police Department than in the Mayor or Council.

Maybe you need to broaden your outlook to include more than a minority of the City's population before making some of your statements.

Funny a con-woman uses the word confidence. Racist hag!

Just my opinion: only the most vocal have lost confidence in Smith. The thin blue line is looking more and more appealing when one sees the mayhem in Portland and Chicago. My thinking has changed, so others too.

I support police accountability over defunding or local control. I applaud the police protecting the right to peaceful protest by either side, and the review of any violent policing. I thank Q for this.

Outside review is bringing accountability. Neal would have been swept under the rug a year ago.

Robinson is overplaying her hand. She got a good boost with the developer/construction crowd after the head-fake airport move.

Still, I think the KCPD and Smith can hold their own as the decisions over control reside at the State level. Neither the council nor Q can change this without some serious horse trading in Jeff City. What do they have to trade?

Would somebody please give her a pot roast and shut her up! What a heifer!

And most of the community has no confidence in the city council. They sell out kids' education for their developer buddies.

What the community has lost confidence is is the city clowncil. They cannot do anything except posture to raise their public profile. Heifer Robinson is particularly adept at that.

Only clueless folks like Peters-Baker, Robinson, and worthless organizations like ad Hoc haven't figured out that the BLM wave crested a few weeks ago, more and more of the public are on to their game, the large amounts of disappearing money, the infighting among the self-appointed "leaders", and the endless pointless demands from people who haven't even taken the time to know what they're talking about.
Even Gwen Grant has enough sense to disappear.
And politicos identified with BLM, including folks at the state and national level, can only be embarrassed and lose as "the movement" continues to become more violent and pointless.
Robinson is just one a many who insist on continuing to make fools of themselves.
KCMO is in a world of hurt.

After watching how the last two councils have screwed around with the entire airport situation and redirected millions to 6 block long bike paths that create more dangerous traffic conditions rather than fix potholes and violate the city charter to change the name of a street that a majority of citizens did not want, why would one have faith in the city council or mayor. Show us you can run a city competently and efficiently than consider taking on the KCPD.

I live in the 3rd district, and we do not need her trying to eliminate the police department. So far she has not been effective at her role on the council because she is a bomb thrower. She needs to learn how to work with people instead of starting fires.

I have lost all confidence in Council Lady Melissa Robinson and her ability to provide leadership and governance.

I take it the boy is black, Otherwise it's called resisting arrest and a criminal teen. Black makes him an innocent child on his way home from church, but headed to grandmas to bake cookies for the senior center.

Says a member of a council the City has lost faith in. Look at the numbers you stupid bitch. Voters trust KCPD far more than this City Council. #recallQ Then we're coming after her.

I haven't lost confidence in the police. Please don't seek to speak for me. However, I have almost zero confidence in city leadership in general.

everything CW Robinson does right now is intentional - whether its trying to undermine a colleague to steal her chairmanship by creating fake noise and not accepting an apology like any mature person to this stunt with the police money - Robinson has lost all credibility and respect. Get her off city council.
