In 2020 Attorney and activist has quickly become one of the most prominent street level organizers and leaders in Kansas City.
However, her newfound notoriety is not without its problems.
To wit . . .
AFTER WEEKEND OUTRAGE, STACY SHAW WALKS BACK HER TOUGH TALK AGAINST THE FAMILIES OF KCPD!!! THE RESPONSE FROM MAYOR Q & KCPD: BULL CRAP!!!
Fact is, mentioning families of the po-po is silly and amateur move and it'll be hard for her to explain away.
Reality . . . Threats are flying back and forth in this ongoing tent city protest that drags on and seems to be further away from accomplishing any of its goals.
On the bright side, local MSM seem to be helpful in trying to amp down the dangerous rhetoric.
Moreover, giving everyone the benefit of the doubt, objective observers would be wise to understand that this is a protest from a pencil pusher, academic, attorney and a very talented organizer and provocateur. It's not a revolution or call to violence.
Nevertheless tonight's headline . . .
Deets . . .
“Having an information campaign is not a threat,” Shaw said. Shaw says she has information on police officers but doesn’t plan on using it in a violent way. “We have that information. We’ve never used it against them. We have discouraged doxing, specifically discouraged doxing. When people wanted L.A. style justice, they were organizers like myself and other people out there in this town that said absolutely not, we want all of their officers to go home to their babies,” Shaw said. What she does plan to do is reach out to officers’ families and close friends to tell them why her group believes the officers should be held accountable.

KCTV5 News told the mayor that reasoning.“That is one of the biggest bull crap statements I’ve ever heard in my entire life. You do not say I’m going to threaten your spouse and your children simply because you want them to understand the nature of someone’s job. That’s ridiculous and preposterous. Her statements were uncalled for and she knows better. She’s a lawyer, a member of the bar. We are trained not to make statements like that,” Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said.
Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police President Brad Lemon’s reaction was similar. “That’s bull crap. You watched the video, everybody else watched that video. We didn’t edit the video. There were no cuts in that video. She said what she said and she’s trying to backtrack it now. The reality is she has threatened the families of police officers,” Lemon said.
