Kansas City Star Attacks Police Union

This editorial imagines Kansas City rank & file police as the enemy of public safety and progress . . . Whilst the group is decidedly conservative, let's not forget that they are also political neophytes and actually endorsed Mayor Quinton Lucas last election.

Still, it's doubtful that directing editorial resources against law enforcement will resonate with paying customers. Checkit:

Want police reform in KC? There's no chance with this police union calling the shots

Members of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners seem to think they work for the police rather than for the public. If reflexively defending the Kansas City Police Department really were their job, along with fending off needed reforms, then they'd be doing a bang-up job.

I hope the KC Scar building gets looted and burned in the next mostly peaceful protest. They are nothing more than a liberal agitation organization anymore.

I hope Tony doesn't let your comment slide. Hoping for violence against someone is repugnant. It's pretty close to a threat. Do better in your commentary, don't just try to feel good by ranting. Think about what you're saying. A legitimate comment and someone who is a REAL conservative doesn't wish harm to anyone. Be a decent person, do better.

Did the Star miss the part about the BOPC agreeing to outside review? About the KCPD de-escalating the Plaza? These are significant changes.

The Star is just a mouthpiece for DNC talking points. Not actually engaged with the local community.

To be clear so that it is not taken out of context:

I have lots of popcorn.

They should have skin in the game that they endorse. That organization is morally and financially bankrupt.

The STAR doesn't know anything about policing; which is equivalent to what they know about journalism.

Does your admirable concern about violence and property destruction extend to BLM flash mobs?

Really Red Star; you are bankrupt both financially and morally.

I am hearing your pension plan is going to take a 40% haircut to pay for the hedge fund acquisition.

Couldn't happen to a better bunch of Communist journalists and editors.

What KC needs to focus on is not bashing the police or police commissioners but cleaning up the city of the radicals in city hall. Just because the black people who run this city think they can go out a steal kill and terrorize the city doesn't mean they should turn on the police when the police get rough with people like George Floyd or Mike Brown. What this is basically saying is....let the black people run the show you can't touch them.

The Marxists want to destroy the police department and everybody knows! Do not give the Marxists anything at all.

how is it that a barista would be summarily fired if they didn't just take shit and de-escalate situations but damn, if a cop loses his shit on someone, unarmed or otherwise, the union just insulates them from any accountability?

How about Negro reform for a change??

Because baristas are overpaid, pussy ass, coffee waiters.

The Kansas Shitty Scar is a two bit, pinko rag, cowtown knock off of the New York Slimes. Everything in it has to be taken with a truckload of salt. Saying that it is biased barely scratches the surface.

Do you know what cops makes. Hell guys in large cities are clearing 300k with overtime and other side jobs.

Anonymous said...

I thought the star liked unions.

Bandit said...

$300k for the shit they are dealing with now seems awfully underpaid. Besides, I bet that figure either got pulled out of your ass or is from someplace like San Franweirdo or New York where the cost of living is out of sight for a tiny shithole house or apartment.

@2:52 is an idiot.

Policeman earn $42k to $70k and then more if they are in management.

The more anarchy and violence I see from the protesters; the more I respect the police personnel's self-control.

They put up with the vile crap of the public everyday.

The so called article they wrote was full of half truths, chief Smith was on the Pete mundo this morning and explained it perfectly, hopefully there’s a place they saved it for people to hear him talk.

Topped out KCPD officer is close to 76k before overtime.

What is this Kansas City star of which you speak? No doubt an irrelevant relic of the past.

The MAGA white nationalist are now cheering looting and violence against the media.

Just one more reason the GOP is going down in flames this November. We've had enough of the MAGA cultists claiming Law and Order, while encouraging and supporting lawless violence.

Have you noticed that he never posts supporting evidence with his Mother Jones/MSNBC propaganda? Weird.

You have Sly to think for the police union. They barely existed until he came in and told them if they wanted their first pay raise in years, like the Fire Dept, they needed to unionize. Now, King Q has told all NON UNION city workers (you know, the white guys) that THEY ALONE are getting docked a week or mores pay. Guess THEY need to find a union.

So stop blaming the cops for doing what they were forced to do by black, democrat mayors. Only a MORON in mgmt would force a labor union when one wasn't wanted.
