KANSAS CITY CRIME SCENE AND THE BAND PLAYED ON: MAYOR Q DECRIES MUGSHOTS AMID HISTORIC 2020 HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!

This old school image of the KCPD band offers a fitting into to a collection of local crime news.

A high or low note depending on the reader's perspective. . .

MAYOR Q SEEMS TO THINK THAT SOCIAL JUSTICE IS THE SOLUTION TO RECORD BREAKING KANSAS CITY DEADLY CRIME!!!

Here's the mayor's hot take on mugshots used by local media . . .

In a statement, Lucas said the resolution continues a discussion began by The Star and KSHB-TV, which also stopped airing many mugshots. That question, he said, is: “When is sharing mugshots necessary?” “We believe, less often than is currently practiced,” Lucas said. “Our view remains that releasing mugshots of individuals who are already in police custody does not actually assist with policing or crime-solving, and airing these mugshots normalizes seeing Black men on television labeled as criminals — perpetuating harmful stereotypes that have held Black and brown members of our community back for generations.” 

“These stereotypes only work to feed the cycle of crime, not break it.”

These are nice sentiments and we're not going to post the mug shot that almost ruined the mayor's career. However . . .

IF THIS IS THE ANSWER TO CURBING THE HISTORIC HOMICIDE COUNT IN KANSAS CITY, IT'S NOT GONNA WORK!!!

In fact, the mayor might notice that when the mugshot is really captivating, local media almost NEVER opt out and often betray their own rules.

Nevertheless, we use this not-so-fun fact as the starting point into a medley more local crime news after the jump . . .

“Our view remains that releasing mugshots of individuals who are already in police custody does not actually assist with policing or crime-solving, and airing these mugshots normalizes seeing Black men on television labeled as criminals — perpetuating harmful stereotypes that have held Black and brown members of our community back for generations.”

The admission by the mayor that the lion's share of crimes committed, are by black people (13% of the population), is a good start. The problem is not the mug shots, it is the crime. The attempt to second party the criminal activity of black criminals to the now "Sin" of exposing those black criminals to public scrutiny is another attempt to exculpate criminal behavior prior to commission, based of the reasonable expectation of black criminal activity.

Democrat politicians are in fear the law abiding black people, whom, weary of the crime in the neighborhoods they live in, voting for more reasonable (Read - Conservative) politicians in hopes of Ordo Ob Chao.

Crime is NOT caused, it is committed.

This is, "The Show Me State" after all.

MR MAYOR YOUR SOCIAL JUSTICE TACK IS ALL WRONG. WHEN THE MSM PUBLISHES A CRIMINAL PHOTO THEY ARE REPORTING THE FACTS. THIS IS PUBLIC RECORD NOT A PROMOTION OF A STEREOTYPE. WHEN THE TRUTH AND FACTS GET IN THE WAY IT'S RACISM.
INSTEAD OF TRYING TO HANDLE THE INDIVIDUAL WRONG, YOU BLAME THE SYSTEM AND DO NOTHING TO HANDLE THE PROBLEM. THE HECK WITH PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY,ADHERING TO THE RULE OF LAW. IT'S ALWAYS SOMEONE ELSE'S FAULT.

You got one thing right mayor mcdumbo, the thug life is the problem, it’s not posting pictures of criminals, what’s next, you gonna demand to cut out the life stories and pictures of the victims too?

At this point all you’re doing is grasping at straws because you still refuse to confront the murderous black community who are behind 95% of killa shittys problems, until you do, just shut the fuck up.

Geez if only blacks would stop committing so much crime it would solve alot of sjw issues, such as. Mugshots on TV, bullet proof glass in every black neighborhood store, inner city food droughts, high black incarceration rates, poor black school performance and on and on.

Just can't seem to figure out the problem.

By the way, fuck the NFL and FUCK the Chiefs.

Reed clearly fired at the police. Investigators found two shell casings from Reed’s weapon and 13 casings from the weapon of the pursuing officer. Video from Reed’s phone shows shell casings flying in two different directions.

“Almost exactly at the same time, two, we know two shots were fired. That can’t happen unless two different shooters are shooting,” said Indiana State Police Lt. Jeff Herron explained.

The investigation also found that the shooting began after the pursuing officer tased Reed.

“He actually tases him at the same time Mr. Reed is actually starting to pull his firearm out,” Herron said.

“Mr. Reed basically goes down on his stomach and then he turns, basically in that same position onto his, basically onto his buttocks and he follows and it appears he follows Officer Mercer as he’s moving,” Herron concluded.

The investigation also found still shots showing Reed stealing the gun from a pawn shop in Texas, and text messages in which Reed detailed his involvement in two drive-by shootings.

The officer who shot Reed was not charged with any crime.

This isn’t the first time that the NFL has paid tribute to a dangerous criminal.

THIS IS WHY IT WILL NEVER END. LIARS.

And Professor McDrinkerson gifts us all with another tone-deaf gem.

The offensive thing about it isn't even that this peanut-headed stooge chooses woke politics over practical concerns during a crime wave he promised to stop. You're concerned about the mugshots? How about the murders, professor?

No, the offensive thing is that this isn't even a statement of conviction. It's just vote insurance. He knows who he has to pander to.

The only reason Lucas wants to stop showing mug shots is because they are mostly black people and he doesn't take kindly to that. He thinks that's racist even though it's true it's mostly black people. Kinda makes him look bad but he's a criminal too so......

yes,7:24 because it's the bitches that don't put out cause crime.

Q: Something we already know. The goal is to get these thugs off the street. Mugshots should be on a 24/7 website for all of KC to view.

Don't think Q's half witted narrative disagrees with that. He disagrees with mugshots of the already incarcerated.

Heart of Darkness
Heart of Darkness is a novella by Polish-English novelist Joseph Conrad about a narrated voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State in the Heart of Africa. Charles Marlow, the narrator, tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames.Wikipedia

Published in 1899. Too bad he's deceased !

Today, he could have simply written about our local CONGO spear-chuckers, in a boat anchored in the Missouri River.

Quinton's 2 crimes in Lawrence KS

1) DUI
2) When local media (e.g., KSHB's Steven Dial) incorrectly described Lucas as a KU Law Professor, he never corrected them. Lucas told the original lie, and then allowed it to perpetuate hundreds of times without setting them straight, that's what a habitual liar/con man does to inflate his importance.

Internet site like busted.com and arrests.org should be banned. busted.com and other are exploitive and charge fees for removal, only to have new sites pop back up. arrests.org claims to be for public safety, and is the seed site for all other exploitive sites, while they allow folks to tag mugshots for entertainment:
Beat Up
Celebrity
Handicap
Grills
Hair
Hunks
Hotties
Scary
Tatted up
Transgender
Wino
WTF

Many states do not allow upload of mugshots to these sites, all states should follow their lead or place a time limit for allowing the upload.

There are plenty of background check sites that can be used by concerned citizens instead.

That would go a long ways to preventing mugshots.

Now we know he wastes his time avoiding the elephant in the room.

Mayor 10-10-10 is watching citizens move to Florida to avoid taxes and masking and illegal restaurant closures by his Nazi-like enforcement.
