As always, we appreciate a good movie reference in our discourse about this town.
Here's the word following a Downtown Kansas City "sideshow" that sparked fear among residents paying top dollar to live amid illicit drag races . . .
"We're getting a look at what happens when the police can't respond or maintain order out of fear of reprisal. Does anybody believe that the cops wouldn't face punishment if they broke up one of these "sideshows" and arrested people??? Guess what, the organizers know that too and now they're openly showing their disregard for the law. It will only get worse. It looks like Mad Max out there and because so many of our elected officials don't support the police, control of the streets is now in doubt."
To be fair, KCPD has asked the public for help in identifying the cars seen doing doughnuts and blocking traffic downtown.
While it's certain they didn't receive a single tip . . . At least upcoming cold weather might slow down these motorist antics.
