TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! BLOODY KANSAS CITY WEEKEND INCITES RENEWED DEBATE OVER KCPD LOCAL CONTROL & DEMAND FOR REMOVAL OF POLICE CHIEF!!!
A spate of Kansas City killing over the past 48 hours has sparked a greater sense of urgency among local politicos and protesters to push their agenda forward amid a public safety emergency.
First, a glimpse at the damage . . .
Kansas City hit with wave of weekend violence
More deets from KCTV5:
"Right now, Kansas City police have their hands full with five new homicide crime scenes and six more deceased victims. Four of the scenes happened within a 24-hour period."
And now . . .
THIS WEEK THE DEBATE OVER POLICE "LOCAL CONTROL" ON THE BALLOT WILL ONCE AGAIN DIVIDE MAYOR & COUNCIL!!!
The debate is both culture war and policy push back in the shadow of PREZ TRUMP VS. BIDEN CAMPAIGN 2020.
Still, there's a hope to stall a local control vote that doesn't really have any binding power whilst activists continue their push to recruit more council members toward a demand to remove the top cop. Expect a continued announcements of solidarity from Missouri Democratic Party hopefuls in the coming days.
And again, all of these power moves and political gambits don't seem to have much impact of the worsening quotient of local violence on on Kansas City streets.
