SHOCK!!! MAYOR Q DOUBLES DOWN ON KANSAS CITY CONVENTION CENTER HOMELESS SHELTER DESPITE CONCERN FROM DOWNTOWN RESIDENTS & BIZ!!!

Less than 24 hours following the conversion of an iconic Kansas City building into a safe space for the homeless, the low-key reaction has been overwhelmingly negative.

Looking closely at social media and via our blog community we notice reasonable questions about security, neighborhood impact and public relations threats to damage biz inside the loop given the inevitable problems that arise at any shelter.

Nevertheless . . .

KANSAS CITY MAYOR Q DEFENDS HIS ADVOCACY OF THE HOMELESS AS PART OF HIS NEW 2021 AGENDA!!!

It's a departure from his more polished law school image but might resonate among so many newfound social media activists. 

Check-it . . .

The mayor's afternoon declaration . . .

"We’ve got our challenges, but I’m proud to be part of a city that believes in zero fare transit, eliminating incarceration for petty offenses, supports transformational affordable housing reform, and uses its biggest facilities to help provide warmth and shelter for all. #KCMO"

Today's work for Mayor Q . . .

"I drove several folks from Bartle Hall to Hope Faith this AM. Another was headed to a job interview up north. Typically, our library system is open then, but the pandemic continues to limit options there. Hopefully, we are helping people find jobs, resources so they can decide."

A hint at a downtown double down . . .

"Expect us to enhance our offerings in the 6am-8am window, so we can help folks like the ones I spoke to this morning with job search, new housing and social service options.

"More steps ahead, but I am proud of KCMO on this step."

Developing . . .

It's way more simple than this. The mayor just turned a convention center into a super spreader event.

Dumb idea.

The Libtards are destroying the oil and gas industry, leaving tens of thousands of its workers without jobs or ways to provide for themselves and their families. There are not solar/wind jobs waiting for them. During a pandemic, consumers will be paying a lot more for gas to run their cars and heat their homes. The Demoncraps are rapidly destroying the robust economy and job growth for people of all races that Trump created.

This might be the first time I have agreed with the Mayor on anything. If the the business community doesn't want Bartle Hall to used as a homeless shelter, they can buy it from the City.

Unfortunately those folks don't pay taxes and those that do, like me, are moving to the burbs.

This is the first time that I have heard a city official explicitly refer to the public library as a homeless shelter. Of course, it has been one for years, but never so overtly.

One more sign that the Mayor and Council favor bums and transients over taxpayers. Thus the rationale for the e-tax: when your actions cause your tax base to shrink, think of ways to make the people who flee the city keep paying for it.

Hey TKC....read a post elsewhere that the Black Panthers are providing security. Have you heard this and confirm?

Since Lucas (and the other council members) had no idea of what a municipal government actually does or what their responsibilities might be, apparently he's decided that his job is to run a social services agency without any particular public discussion or ordinances.
Pander to folks who won't obey laws.
Support protestors and rioters.
Encourage folks to not pay their rent.
And now he's "proud" about all of this.
There's been no planning or thought into any of these giveaways and certainly not any budgeting or fiscal planning.
All this hand-wringing seems to work fine until he runs out of other people's money.
Which KCMO most assuredly already has.

Good job creating the Downtown COVID Accelerator, Mauor McDrinkerson! With security provided by Black Panthers!

The comedy writes itself.

You heard it here first folks. Businesses need to shut down, and you can't have a superbowl party, but a horde of homeless can be gathered together in one spot with no problem at all! And you can rest assured that Black Panthers, thugs with little to no training in managing this kind of situation, will make sure all goes well.

That's Professor McDrinkerson's KC!

Good for Mayor Lucas. So many negative critical losers who do NOTHING to help others or made our great City better. So many ignorant self important comments.

The Bartle Hall custodial staff should not be forced to clean up after these drug addicts, wino's, and bums defecating everywhere and spreading filth and disease.

The Bartle Hall custodial staff are being exposed to medical conditions that they did not sign up for and definitely not for $10 an hour or less.

I hope a good lawyer represents the Bartle Hall custodial workers and sues the hell out of the City of Kansas City.

This was a reckless health decision by Lucas. He is totally unqualified to be a Mayor of a major city.

Yes, let's sue the city over how they use one of their buildings and their employees. The brilliance at Tony's Kansas City never stops.

the mayor says help find jobs. that's easy to understand. after jobs are found how do the homeless go about cashing their checks?

i know of no banking system that will allow personal accounts if there are no permanent addresses. what if the homeless have no i.d for proof of who they are?

no birth certificate for getting an i.d. and being literate in the first place are other issues.

heck, this morning i darn near hit a homeless person pushing his "car".

now that i think about it it is a sad situation for some - surely hope has already been lost.

This won’t be as successful as they hope and think. Many people who are homeless choose to live on the streets and not in shelters because they don’t want to follow the rules and regulations such as no alcohol or drug use, etc.

They may get several pawns in this ridiculous pr stunt but not the numbers they think. Wait for the media follow up on this and how amazing they will make it seem.

Add in the fact that the KC Revolutionary Black Panther party is providing the security and it will be a flop. They aren’t licensed security through the city and pd but that won’t be addressed because the pd citing a Black Panther for operating without a valid security license would be racist

So in eastern jackson county frank white partnered with a childrens summer camp to provide the shelters for homeless since they couldnt do children's summer camps For the past year all apt communities and neighboring homeowners in the area have had. Major petty thefts. Car vandalism (looking for some coins) but breaking a window to steal)so many catalytic converters. Word is out amongst the homeless (whom many don't want a job) good luck downtown...it hasn't been good out here at all.

Hey, dumbass. It's the taxpayers building. What private people do with private property is their business. Degrading an asset because you want to show how much you care is frankly gross mismanagement.

For the win!

I agree that government should not be in the convention business. But once you have taken taxpayer money, which is money taken by force, to build said convention center, then you ought to be a good steward of it.

Just don’t have to babysit and nobody asked you to babysit anybody. Nobody asked you to do any type of babysitting and why are you continuously babysitting individuals. No one here asked you to babysit and why do you feel that you need to take the responsibility to take care of the rest of these people.

You don’t feel that you have to take on the responsibility to take care of these other people because not anybody ask you to babysit these individuals. Why do you feel that you need to babysit these individuals and individuals never asked you to babysit any of these individuals..

They just need to know that we will never be in a sexual relationship and they also need to know that we will never have any type of sexual issues because that something that we will never have.

But who says that you have to babysit these individuals.

Because most parents prefer their cubs to meet individuals at school that’s involving Preschool/elementary school/middle school/high school settings that most parents prefer their cubs to meet individuals at during issues.

But a lot of people have the same products as Snoop Dogg (Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.).

Having the title deed to a house/housing having title needs to vehicles that don’t owe anybody any type of money and don’t owe anybody any type of money in general.

But you should never judge your classmates based on the color of their skin because a lot of people can also supply the exact same situations as Snoop Dogg.

But having ownership of property, my vehicle, housing, other products and services. That I don’t owe anybody any type of money and not owing anybody any type of services in general that people will need reason to even knock at my door and what was the reason why you knocked at my door.

But even have any title deed of my house/houses and having a title need to my vehicle that I never owed anybody any type of money and I never owed anybody any type of money in general because I never borrowed from anybody.

I also had my own money as well that I don’t owe anybody any type of money and I don’t owe anybody any type of services. That I don’t rent from landlords but I have my own property deed and my own property in general. That individuals was just jealous of me because their parents never had the financial resources to make them successful because their parents never took effort into their education and never had that type of issue.

But that’s another reason why private security obtains the application from 635 Woodland Ave., Suite number 2104 in Kansas City, Missouri 64106 (816)-889-6600 because it’s just part of the tax dollars within the city limits of Kansas City, Missouri that any citizens should have already use the tax dollars that they paid for to use the city services of the Police Department.

The application process at 635 Woodland Ave., Suite number 2104 in Kansas City, Missouri (816)-889-6600 was just part of the taxpayers dollars that support state section 84.720 revised statues of the state of Missouri and the background check was just making sure that that private security officer was cleared at the local police station have any type of active/outstanding warrants signed by a judge that support state section 84.720 revised statues of the state of Missouri.

But just remember of Senate Bill 43 of the state of Missouri because most individuals that have Obtained a background check The support state section 84.720 revised statues of the stone Missouri was just part of the taxpayers money that they have previously spent.

The application process was just making sure that the private security officer/private security guard/private security official has already been cleared regarding a background check and can’t find any active/outstanding warrants signed by a judge that support state section 84.720 revised statues of the state of Missouri.

But just remember of Senate Bill 43 of the state of Missouri because most individuals will obtain the license that support state section 84.720 revised statues of the state of Missouri before collecting their first check from the company and before serving the general public.

My company donated supplies and when I was dropping them off, it smelled like ass and weed in there. I think I got a contact high from the lingering marijuana smell. I am glad the homeless stoners don't have to smoke their weed in the cold, but it makes me question my decision to donate. if they can afford weed, then why am I donating supplies?
