Kansas City Star Rivalry Against Police Worsening Ahead Of Violent Summer

This week the so-called Kansas City paper-of-record continued to target police and the top cop with criticism.

Two editorial offerings provided scathing rebuke of local authorities . . .

‘Police beat me’: Two Kansas City officers accused in third excessive force complaint

Despite fewer readers, subscribers and advertisers . . . A few diehard newshounds took notice.

One of our all-time favorite bloggers offered his perspective . . .

JoCo SOB: KC STAR HATES COPS

His main point . . .

"As KCMO violent crime goes up, the Star decides to attack the police and make their jobs more difficult."

Accordingly . . .

We can only add a humble insight . . . 

As the newspaper fades from relevance it's clear that locals can survive without dead-tree editorials dominating local chatter. Meanwhile, like it or not, police are a far more important public safety resource. It's disappointing to watch one fading institution attempting to bring down another amid an ongoing violent crime spike that impact every Kansas City resident.

Journalists learn the Marxist bullshit at public university journalism schools.

The state legislature should cut off funding for these communist bastard professors and let them earn a real living.

It’s the passive aggressive mayor saying these things everybody knows that he’s been paying the commie red star to print his lies and b.s. when you’re getting taxpayer money to stay afloat the mayor gets them to write his personal feelings and beliefs, that’s the reason why all these stories coming out of the star sound childish, you know, like a uneducated black boy said it.

The homicides in KCMO will continue at a record pace.
There's nothing that the police can do except answer the 911 calls and investigate the murders.
The "community" will continue to not cooperate with the cops, even though the vast majority of murders take place in minority neighborhoods.
So less than half the crimes will be solved.
And the pitiful Star and most other local media will continue to run stories about grieving families "demanding justice", as though the dysfunction and despair of their community were someone else's fault.
Oh. And lots more speeches and demands from the revs and other usual suspect east-side grifters.
In other words, nothing will change.
