TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY BLACK LIVES MATTER STREET MURALS BLOCKED OFF AND UNDER SURVEILLANCE!!!
Today hundreds of volunteers helped artists paint murals dedicated to the the Black Lives Matter movement on the streets of Kansas City.
Local news has focused on the positive and community building aspects of this artsy endeavor. Meanwhile, TKC has warned readers that those who have defaced BLM murals in other cities now confront hate crime charges.
Here's another important tidbit that deserves consideration . . .
KANSAS CITY STREETS FEATURING BLM MURALS WILL BE BLOCKED OFF UNTIL MONDAY!!! MOREOVER, THERE'S SURVEILLANCE PROTECTING THIS CONTROVERSIAL PUBLIC ART PROJECT!!!
Sadly, we know that there's no amount of protection that can totally secure a Kansas City landmark from people with bad intentions.
However, the goal of TKC to offer useful public information so that readers can be knowledgeable about the reality of life on local streets.
Lesser local media has already confirmed some of our TKC FIRST news reporting:
"The roads around (the murals) will be closed until Monday morning, so the best time to view the murals — before cars can drive on them — may be Sunday afternoon. But the murals will be around for quite awhile: Sunday morning, after doing the finishing touches, crews are set to apply a strong sealant on all the artworks."
Again, more interestingly . . .
In much the same way that widely available and surprisingly advanced spy tech is used to grab images of suspects dumping garbage on public streets . . . A great many cameras will be focused on these murals in order to gauge all manner of public reaction.
Real talk: Don't say that you weren't warned.
Also . . .
The reality is that quite a few Kansas City residents believe the BLM murals are a target for vandals with opposing political viewpoints and widespread opposition has already vowed to attack the project openly via social media.
And, as always, TKC hopes that this artsy endeavor inspires a CREATIVE exchange of ideas rather than any potential destruction or divisive action.
