Bullshit to English translation of 8:44: "I'm completely ignorant of the fact that Operation Legend is here to go after those on federal charges not run of the mill street thugs shooting each other but I'll still act like I'm the smartest person in the room anyway so there!"

Operation legend has been a stunning failure. they have failed to slow the murders at all! Another failed Trump policy. Everything he touches dies.

Uh, who is praying? I hope it continues. Keep it up in Kenosha. Starving people in Minneapolis are breaking into Saks so they can feed their children right now. Riot wherever. Keep going. Another Wisconsin Electoral College win for Trump, and maybe Minnesota too. Every car burned, every store looted, every window smashed, every cop bricked brings thousands of voters to Trump. When he wins in November, we can ignore Antifa for another three years until Trump Jr. or Kristi Noem win the election in 2024.

@9:35am
The stated purpose of Operation LeGend is to help solve homicides that HAVE ALREADY BEEN COMMITTED.
And with that in mind, the operation has already been very successful in getting both thugs and illegal weapons off the streets in KCMO.
Even more important, those arrested will be charged in federal court, so incompetent SJWs like Peters-Baker won't be able to either blow the case or let them back on the streets with a wrist slap.
Meanwhile, what passes for leadership in KCMO government and the black community continues to repeat the same old tired mantras, waste millions on failed "anti-crime" nonprofits, and make demands of the people who are actually working to make neighborhoods safer.
It's too bad the feds can't stay permanently.
