Despite the upcoming influx of "free money" courtesy of Prez Biden, we aren't noticing a lot of happy people in Kansas City. In fact, once again, local political hostilities intensify as warmer weather approaches.
Just as many TKC readers predicted, arguments against the top cop have been exacerbated following recent protest over police brutality . . .
Last night a low-grade charge against KCPD only served to exacerbate criticism among local leaders.
Follow-up evidence . . .
Across the nation there's renewed outcry against deadly police action . . .
This week Americans were reminded that deadly disputes can not only set the nation on fire but also push municipalities closer to bankruptcy . . . A not-so-fun fact, insurance companies have also discovered that underwriting "political violence" is a growing segment of their biz.
Last week bold protest brought rifles to the home of a local elected official and set the stage for increasingly heightened tensions among the activist class who seem ready to retake local streets . . .
And so we ask . . .
WE NOTICE MANY LOCALS WORKING TO JOIN OR DISPUTE THE NEXT KANSAS CITY "MOSTLY PEACEFUL" DEMONSTRATION AGAINST POLICE . . . BUT IS THERE ANY INDEPENDENT VOICE WORKING TO ALLEVIATE HOSTILITIES BEFORE THE NEXT DEADLY ALTERCATION SPARKS A RIOT?!?
The punchline here is that both police and activists claim that's exactly what they're doing.
To be fair, tensions between community & authorities are a constant. Right now in Greece, the cradle of Western Civilization, they're rioting after video clips emerged depicting a police officer beating man with an iron baton for breaking Covid restrictions.
Nevertheless, as the rule of Prez Biden aggravates political divisions across the nation, it's clear the stage is once again set for continued clashes against law enforcement and our local political leadership isn't doing much of anything to address the worsening situation.
