Kansas City Star Vs. KCPD Chief Rick Smith

From behind the comfort of a paywall, the so-called Kansas City paper of record denounces a recent statement from the top cop on the threat of police cuts. Sadly, this is one of the few instances where the newspaper doubts cash complaints from local government. 

What's more interesting is that a scathing editorial from the newspaper no longer "moves the dial" in terms of public opinion like it did only a few years ago.

KCPD Chief Rick Smith responds to possible budget cuts with scare tactics, cheap tricks

Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith's blog post on the " devastating" proposed budget cuts necessitated by COVID-19 is more than a little hysterical, and we don't mean hilarious. Every city department has been asked to look into what possible cuts could be made if an 11% budget cut turns out to be necessary to address a $60 million decline in tax revenue.

The chief is speaking the truth, it maybe exaggerated a tad but what he’s saying is truthful, the commie red star on the other hand hasn’t written anything truthful in ten years and besides, who the hell cares what the red star has to say anymore, everybody knows they rate lower than the national enquirer! Lmao!

Kc Star lost all credibility years ago.

Fortunately subscription based folks voted by cancelling- part of the true cancel culture that gave birth to out of control cancel culture that the left stole and now use violence and bullying to topple statues and history.

Anyone is free - as long as they pay the Uber-wealthy fees- to read The Star. Should they decide to follow any advice- they should remember that the company they are following has watched its fortunes nosedive where they have no viable plan to exist in any traditional models and ex employees to this day wonder how it all happened- while they themselves blog against Conservatives and Traditional American values.

Perhaps The Star could use some advice. Here is some:

Dissolve itself and print a last edition admitting that it contributed to a demise of America and an uptick in record crime by advocating for American’s demise by taking leftist-liberal-Hollywood-anti-nuclear-family- Catholic-hating-tofu-positive-make-eating-Volvo-driving behaviors.

It isn't scare tactics and cheap tricks it's the truth of what will happen but it's what Lucas wants to happen so he can use it against Smith to try and remove him.

The star and its editorial board long lost interest of serving the community. The editorial board lost its way years ago and now those on the board portend to speak and represent KC interests when they are nothing but mouth pieces for progressives and activists.
