KC Tenants Claim Rent Strike Victory As Jackson County Evictions Delayed

The reprieve is for two weeks.

Sadly, no word about money owed to small time property owners who have sustained devastating loses. 

What many activists might not understand is that economic consequences of this disruption to local commerce threaten to further limit the supply of housing overall given that smaller home providers won't trust local government to protect contracts and will exit the market.

Moreover, targeting the home of a local judge with protest is now confirmed as a viable protest tactic for progressives.

Local news is only covering the progressive economic angle despite small biz hardship amid this COVID debate and continued housing crisis.

Idiots. Pretty soon there will be complaints about the lack of rental properties in KC. Can't live for free.

Is the judge going to make the landlords mortgage payment? These people need to go out and get a job. They have spent more time rioting and have spent no time looking for a job. Why not stop the "violence" against the landlords?
Funny how the democrats can take months to give out stimulus money but they can do an impeachment in a couple of days.

Just kicking the can down the road and are too stupid to realize it.
The rent isn't being forgiven.
It's accruing!
Sad.

The delay was to avoid further protests by the tenant rights idiots prior to the inauguration.

Hopefully the court guarantees that the landlords will be paid all back rent plus interest.

What these idiots don’t know is the courts have been shutdown because of the Chinese red death virus, suckered again by the government people that are supposed to help them! Hahahahaha!

I worked with Judge Weir for 5 years at the 16th Circuit. She's a nice person who doesn't need stinky people protesting at her home. There will soon come a time when the renters will be thrown out of the asses into the street.

Aren't you the same krank that says KC is dying and everyone is moving to the burbs whenever it's expedient for you to say the opposite of what you say today????

Oh so there was effectively an eviction moratorium? Win-win but not for you.

I think I understand. When protesters briefly shut down public business in Washington DC and harass public officials it's sedition. When protesters try to permanently shut down public business in Kansas City and harass public officials it's commendable.

Do the media only have double standards or are there more?
