Social media allegations of alleged assault and police brutality at the Scott Eicke Warming Center are circulating widely among Kansas City activists right now. The drama unfolding is unclear amid the disorderly scene but so far the mayor's office has worked to diffuse questions about security.
However, here's what we know for sure . . .
PROTEST FROM KANSAS CITY HOMELESS OVER AN ALLEGED ATTACK & ENSUING ARREST SPARK SOCIAL MEDIA WRATH!!!
Now . . .
What we can decipher is that one of the "guests" of the warming center was detained for disorderly behavior. However, the suspect told authorities that a volunteer "hit him in the mouth" in addition to other grievances with the quality of shelter provided.
Real talk . . .
The situation at the warming center now borders on outright anarchy as some activists are frustrated with law enforcement tactics whilst others argue with new residents and organizers struggle to maintain order among increasingly rowdy guests.
To be fair, working in situations where extreme poverty is rampant can be a shock to those who are unfamiliar with issues specific to this population.
However, a quick look at the scene reveals that rising tension and frustration among new inhabitants of the warming center is undeniable and so far unreported by MSM.
