Kansas City, Missouri, City Councilman Eric Bunch took aim at Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith in a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, ultimately calling for Smith’s resignation.
Bunch cited the fact that Kansas City police still don’t have functioning body cameras as one reason for his suggested resignation.
Bunch also alleged Smith has done “virtually nothing” to implement Mayor Quinton Lucas’s public safety reform initiatives in a response to updates from Tuesday’s KCPD Board of Police Commissioners meeting in which Smith said body cameras are “still being looked at.”
