They've protested and even shut down courts, and now a coalition of Kansas City organizations and housing advocates are taking their case to a judge hoping to halt evictions during the pandemic. Tenant advocates and several other groups sent a public letter to Jackson County Presiding Judge David Byrn and Mayor Quinton Lucas on Thursday, demanding they reinstate the Jackson County eviction moratorium for at least six months.

Where was Diane Charity on the issue of East Patrol and the evictions that took place there? With somebody as old as she is - knowing that evictions hurt people, she should have been a champion for stopping evictions of actual homeowners. Tenants by their very nature are wayward. People ought to prioritize their rent instead of blowing through stimulus money and gratuitous unemployment bonus to buy other non-essentials.

30% of tenants nationwide are behind on rent. Unemployment rates haven't been this high since the Great Depression. People are without jobs or money.

This is not about scofflaws, layabouts, and personal irresponsibility. Where do you think these people will sleep? The shelters are full. Griping won't help and neither will putting it all on the backs of the landlords.

The only people making bank during COVID are the billionaire class whose net worth are up double digit percentages. Quit blaming the working poor. The poor and middle class are being sheared. Pay attention. Get a clue. You're next.

^^hey dumbass, in most cases unemployment in covering 110% of salary...so where is that money going?? Or did they not work in the first place, so COVID is just the excuse not to pay rent?
