TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY CRIME PREVENTION PLAN CUTS POLICE AMID WORSENING COVID-19 BUDGET CRISIS!!!

The pandemic has forced Mayor Quinton Lucas to choose his priorities and maintaining the police budget isn't one of them. To be fair, despite pleading from neighborhoods for more cops, KCPD indulged in buying new tech toys with their MASSIVE budget that's now at risk. 

It gets worse . . . Given longtime local voting history, MAGA conservatives from the police union make HORRIBLE spokesmen for continued funding of desperately needed community policing given their documented animosity for the widely held progressive political values of the community which they're supposed to serve.

Accordingly, and just as we predicted . . . 

CORONAVIRUS DEVASTATION OF THE KANSAS CITY  BUDGET FACILITATES DE FACTO "DEFUND THE POLICE" POLICY!!!

Argue semantics with somebody paid to push a party line because the (bad) joke here is that there's no cash for ANYBODY until the federal government starts printing more money despite diminishing returns. Meanwhile, the police budget is still going to take an EPIC hit with 400 JOBS AT RISK despite double talk about supporting law enforcement and the Black Lives Matter movement at the same time. 

Example . . .

Check the money tweet from Mayor Lucas that doesn't skimp on highlighting ongoing diversity efforts for police:

"I do not believe in cutting staff or closing stations. I also believe we need new recruit classes, many of which reflect our city. I hope all can work together on administrative adjustments that can help address our budget challenges but still keep our residents safe."

Sadly, 145 murders so far this year proves that a great many residents in Kansas City aren't safe and the upcoming politically charged slap fight betwixt the mayor & police isn't going to improve the deadly crisis underway.

in the grand scheme of things, if you live in KCMO this is way more important than the president's tax returns.

Whatever they were spending the crime prevention budget on wasn’t working anyway given the murder/crime rates in KC. That money would be better served on something else, like trash pickup.

Truth @5:52. Finally some practicality around here!

A Missouri statute sets a funding formula for the KCMO police. Neither the City Council, nor the Mayor, who sits on the Police Board, have any ability to change that formula, only the Missouri legislature and Governor.

^^^^ Yet they're still getting cut anyway. Weird.

Fire quinton not the police, he is the one who is not keeping kc safe!

Randall said...

The police are not being honest about the potential job "cuts" they playing politics far worse than they mayor who says right there that he does not endorse any cuts to the number of officers!

Dear Mayor Lucas,

Here is a solution. Convince (Shouldn't be hard, they all throw their hands in the air and scream "hands up don't shoot" on command and pretend that there is no justice then wreck the peace.) all of your black voters that there is a new strain of Covid/Sickle Cell and they need to stay home and quarantine.

Eureka!!! No crime!!!

Now, you can de-fund the police department.

HEY EVERYBODY!!! HOLY SMOKES!!! YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!!!

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/minneapolis-city-council-alarmed-by-surge-in-crime-months-after-voting-to-defund-the-police

In Minneapolis there is an enormous increase in violent crime after they fired many of the police officers and stopped supporting the police department!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bet no one saw that coming!

Ya just gotta love Democrat policies.

^^^ Don't forget, there is no such thing as voter fraud in Democrat cities.

This is purposely done by Quinton Lucas. He is openly racist and hates the police what do you think the SIX Bowel Movement Matters is all about. This guy has more hate than I do and that's a lot. He has no intentions of supporting the most important thing in a city that is high in crime. So sit back and watch this city implode with more violence and I hope Quinton Lucas his family and Pat Mahomes are the next victims. Then you can call your social justice police maybe Lucas will do what Seattle did and put a rapist and pimp in charge. I'll bet he will cough up money then.

The police have been so ineffective in the past 5 years, will we notice a difference? Crime rate goes down, police budget keeps going up. Crime goes up, budget goes up. The cops already soak the city for a quarter billion a year. Where’s the results?

Lucas continues to act as though he's "teaching" a college course and that his actions don't have any real consequences in the real world.
The KCPD is already badly understaffed as could easily be seen by spending any time analyzing the department or especially by riding along with the cops in high-crime parts of the city.
Mindless "across the board" cutting of budgets while continuing to focus on upside-down priorities, peripheral issues, and PR may work at KU, but the consequences of these actions will be severe for folks who live in KCMO.
Amateur night on the plains.

Cops have to be allowed to do their jobs by the Q Balls of the world. When cops have their hands tied be ineffectual shitshows.

Mayor McDrinkerson demonstrates his impotence yet again. A revolting, shameless stooge.

Yeah. Put a gun in your mouth and pull the trigger.

Keep our residents safe? Have you looked at the news lately? There’s a shooting nearly everyday in Kansas City. For Gods sake! A a toddler was shot and killed the other day. We are already unsafe and that’s with crime prevention funding. We aren’t safe with or without funding.

You only damage your future karma by disrespecting the murals. I will burn an incense stick for you.

So I guess we should use the money to pay for parenting classes. Or better yet you liberals could hand out be if it’s for fathered who opt to stick around and teach morals and values

Sounds more like a crime retention plan.

As usual, the Democrats are weak on crime and violent criminals.

The good news is Biden said in the primary debates he plans to send social workers into our homes to show us how to use the record player.

Give the cops their Billy Sticks and freedom to shoot and the crime rate will drop like a rock.

Plus .45 ammo is a lot cheaper than tasers, social workers and all of that other crap.

Criminals and thugs only respect force.

Let the cops do their jobs and f*ck the elite, Gay media types like Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper and the other she-men of CNN.

If assholes burn and riot; then let the cops shoot a few and the knuckleheads will learn rioting is not in their best interest; especially the limp wristed college types.

Kyle Rittenhouse is only 17 years old and he showed the nation how to end a riot in a hurry.

If the Hollywood elites armed, gated communities were being burned and shot at they would get a feel of what the rest of us peasants living in the trenches are enduring the last few months of the Marxist Democrat anarchy.

westerners always think karma is some sort of christian value of punishment for a sin. It is not, unless you want to call the Dali lama a sinner.

what murals were destroyed in africa that made people be deserving of being enslaved?

We need more police, not fewer. They can defund the stupid bike lanes and the hobo train.
