KSHB CANCELS MUGSHOTS!!!

It seems that "Action 41 News" is fighting to be the most "woke" of local newscasts which seems about right given recent lawsuits targeting the outlet for racial discrimination.

Here's their latest move that offers a turnaround and just a tiny bit of "restorative justice" for the plebs:

41 Action News to significantly curtail use of police mugshots

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Innocent until proven guilty is a bedrock of the U.S. legal system. It also is becoming the bedrock of our policy in using police mugshots in news coverage. With a few exceptions, 41 Action News is committed to reducing - and, in some cases, eliminating - the practice of using police-provided booking photos for criminal subjects.

Yet these clowns constantly show edited videos of police interacting with self-destructive "citizens" and report that "it appears" the cops are doing something inappropriate.
That's why this "reporting" is called stories.
The constant narrative cannot be denied!

Never watch the channel anyway so I don't give a hoot. They spread lies like all the rest do.

It might be helpful to the public to have a mugshot of an at-large suspect. We already have a general idea of their appearance anyway.

Yep, newsome breast cancer poster child have no issues about reporting half baked stories about East Patrol development.... probably because her husband got contracts to be a commissioner on appeals... to the tune of $40k.

An affiliate of NBC. Most liberal network on TV. Say no more.

We don't need the mugshots to tell what species they are.

KSHB News, we're hood rat friendly now. Maybe they won't burn our truck in the next riot.

NBC is the least objective followed by CBS and ABC is a close second.

The criminals are celebrating tonight by planning some robberies, assaults and burglaries. Less chance of getting caught means a victory for the bad guys. Way to be "woke," Channel 41 Action News. You're truly brilliant in your decision-making.

Aside from a facebook post smoking a blunt, holding a fistful of ten dollar bills and a glock, a mugshot is the only photo most koloreds have ever had taken.

Just when you think the stupidity can’t get any worse. As long as mugshots of ANY suspect, regardless of race, are shown, how is that racist? If there is a dirtbag (any race) on the loose, how can they use their favorite “Call the TIPS hotline” game with no picture to go by. A “black male with brown eyes” is really gonna narrow things down.
