Without question Mayor Q saved lives by providing shelter for the homeless during a historic Kansas City arctic blast.
However, concerns about security and anti-police rhetoric that launched the project ruined what would have been a valiant humanitarian effort.
Unfortunately, as usual, Mayor Q paid far too much attention to the chatter from activists and their hype in support of Black Panthers working as security soured the mission. The mayor's fear of aggravating progressive allies kept him silent as he relied on wordplay to deflect questions from JoCo newsies.
Over time the situation deteriorated and fighting was a constant at the facility.
Even worse . . .
AN EPIC BRAWL AT MAYOR Q'S DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY WARMING CENTER SPARKED VANDALISM AGAINST POLICE IN HOPES OF STEALING FIREARMS FOR REVENGE!!!
Documentation . . .
Here's the important part . . .
"In an interview, THE SUSPECT said he had gotten into an altercation with someone at the Warming Center inside Bartle Hall. He said he used a rock to break the patrol car's window (which was caught on surveillance) in an attempt to steal a shotgun in the rack."
"THE SUSPECT planned to take the shotgun back and use it on the person he got into an altercation with. When he wasn't able to remove the shotgun, he damaged other equipment in the vehicle. A preliminary estimate puts damages at just over $1,000."
Special thanks to AWESOME TKC READERS who sent the important part of this report our way.
The lesson here:
The Mayor's noble intentions were tarnished by his inability to stand up to local activists who are blinded by an ongoing effort to defund an abolish police.
Meanwhile, the chaos that resulted in and around this homeless hangout offers a glimpse at the end game of so many activists who demand reform and systemic change without a real plan for what happens after they win their bitter feud with authorities.
