TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR JEAN PETERS BAKER DENOUNCES MISSOURI GUV PARSON'S 'CONCURRENT JURISDICTION' EFFORT TO FIGHT SPIKING STL MURDERS!!!



First, here's context for this political debate . . .

Missouri Governor Mike Parson wants Missouri's attorney general to help the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office with the 'growing backlog of murder cases' in the city.

As local media catch up to TKC, we hope they mention that until very recently, the prosecutor also served as Missouri Democratic Party Chair.

Moreover, there's a great deal of interest, concern and speculation that the Guv might also continue his efforts to crack down on historic KCMO murders as his campaign efforts ramp up.

Nevertheless and in fairness, here's a look at her full statement released just moments ago . . .

Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker calls effort for concurrent jurisdiction political and dangerous

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker issued the following statement today regarding efforts by the Missouri Governor and Attorney General to win concurrent jurisdiction in St. Louis City

This is not new. It is not a new concept and one that local prosecutors have had to fight against for generations. The notion, called concurrent jurisdiction, was promoted by the Governor and an inexperienced Attorney General to be the trusted savior for the City of St. Louis. This time, however, it smacked of politics as the source of the inspiration, rather than the usual arrogance and overstated belief in their capacity and skills. The Attorney General wants us to believe he has some special powers where he has no trust with the community, no relationship with the police or judiciary and no relationship with the local prosecutor (since he never spoke with her). No, this suggests something else is afoot and that something else is not seeking to benefit the citizens of St. Louis City. In fact, I believe it will hurt them.

During my years working as an assistant prosecutor and now the elected prosecutor, I can recall other times when this issue has come up. Each time it was soundly defeated because all locally elected prosecutors, Republicans and Democrats alike, urban, rural and suburban, banded together in order to defeat this dangerous concept. The reason we band together is pretty simple. Concurrent jurisdiction interjects politics into our system. While each locally elected prosecutor must choose a political party, that is not the kind of politics that comes to play with concurrent jurisdiction. This type of politics is personal. It’s a political ploy revealed in St. Louis violence numbers. St. Louis City has had 163 murders so far in 2020, however, only 44 suspects were arrested. Kim Gardner has filed 34 of those 44 cases so far. One should not presume that the other 10 murder cases will never be filed. It is not uncommon for a prosecutor to ask for additional work to be done on a case in order to get to proof beyond a reasonable doubt and to be sure we are getting it right. That’s how it works.

The Attorney General has no special magical powers to help build more evidence for police In fact, his powers are far diminished in a jurisdiction where he is not seen at community meetings and community members can’t call his personal cell phone. But that is what Kim Gardner currently offers her community. I would hope that the Attorney General’s Office would offer St. Louis City support under the long-standing roles in place for over a century. No new special law is needed. The Attorney General simply could pick up the phone, call Ms. Gardner and ask, “how can I help you?”

it's all politics.

But maybe KC and STL should take all the help they can get considering the murders.

I would think voters want the murderers put away? What's the problem with that?

The local prosecutors are worried that the AG will get convictions. A concept foreign to them.

I hope the State comes to KC next. How could any prosecutor who is overwhelmed by the Urban criminal activity be critical of State help???

How does she type such a long opinion with so much blood on her hands?

The vast majority of homicides in Missouri are in KCMO and St Louis and yet when the state or the feds offer some help in investigating and prosecuting the murders, clowns like Gwen Grant and Peters-Baker in KCMO and the incompetent prosecutor in St Louis want nothing to do with the help.
It really speaks volumes as to what these folks' agendas are.
And it sure has nothing to do with public safety in high-stress parts of their cities.
Their behavior should be more than enough for electeds like mayors and council members to condemn them, but of course you don't hear a peep.
Instead these folks talk endlessly about "gun violence" as though it's a big issue anywhere but in very particular parts of both cities.
Willful ignorance.

How is it the the state of Missouri has the two worst prosecutors in the nation?

The notorious JPG doesn't want anybody putting more people in prison than she does. That wouldn't take much effort at all either. She sucks ass as a prosecutor and as a human being. Do your job or STFU you shill!

The Prosecutor is not very nice.

Bandit said...

She's not very competent either.

Baker doesn't like it because she's WEAK on crime and wants to go easy on criminals. Her incompetence is why we have so many violent criminals loose on the streets now.

As the former head of the area Democratic Party, this is obviously a lame political move by her to help her corrupt, career political cronies.

Yes, JPB has a great relationship with the police. She charges cops with crimes to suit her political agenda.

george soros told Petersucker to say all this or he’d rat them out and cut her off from all that bribe money she and that idiot shitty Louis prosecutor have been getting for years.

Who is Jean Peters Baker to flap her big mouth? This isn't her fight it's Parson's he's the Gov. not her failing ass. If no one does anything then everyone bitches about the GOP letting everyone get killed but it the GOP does do something then we are slammed for that. You dirty democrats are all over the place.

Did anyone hear the black lady telling BLM to rob stores and take what they want because they have insurance and the blacks are owed. You people need to get it through their head we don't owe you anything. You want money??? Go after Jean Peters Baker or the low life terrorist Patrick Mahomes.

Prosecuting Attorney Peters Baker is responsible for Kansas City becoming uninhabitable with all the murders, rapes and pillaging.

Democrats profit from high violent crime rates thanks to the Combat Tax.

This is and gun control pleas are why they promote violence and encourage lawlessness. It's as progressive as Margaret Sanger.

There’s 283 murders combined in killa shitty and shitty Louis and she’s gonna complain about the state stepping in where both prosecutors themselves have failed miserably?

Petersucker got bitch slapped by her own party when they fired her ass from the Missouri dimwit party and then the feds had to come here and take over for her failure to protect the people she swore an oath to protect and serve. Mean jean, you dumb bitch, take your retirement money, your George soros money and disappear.... the sooner the better, we can’t afford all these taxpayer paid for funerals and hospital bills for the victims you’ve created.

No one cares what she thinks.
They need help as Gardner is just plain dumb.

Remember a former FBI agent hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner to help in the criminal investigation of then-Missouri Greitens - Tisaby- total disaster. grand jury indictment charged William Tisaby with seven felony counts, including multiple perjury charges. His conduct during the investigation was a factor in prosecutors dropping the felony invasion of privacy charge against the governor.

That was Kim Gardner who hired him.

I guess an idiot is what prosecutors are.
