KANSAS CITY PROTESTERS SHUT DOWN PLAZA AGAIN ON ANNIVERSARY OF GEORGE FLOYD MURDER!!!

For more than an hour protesters dominated the Kansas City Country Club Plaza to commemorate the death of George Floyd.

Special thanks to A KICK-ASS TKC READER for sending a clip of streets blocked in order to offer tribute speeches . . .

There wasn't any violence but I wouldn't exactly call it "peaceful" . . . A quote:

“We gonna knock on your door. We gonna blow your mother f*cking head off”

KSHB's Dave D'Marko also features some great images from the scene.

  2. Speech should not be regulated. They are not causing violence and the constitution guarantees the people the right to protest peacefully. They have a right to speak up!

    Looks like a good crowd of a few hundred. I wonder if they'll go to the cheesecake factory afterwards?

  4. I see some of the typical chatter against protesters that never admits that if it was the other way around there would be chaos in the streets. Forget the capitol Riot already?

  5. Funtime pizza party afterwards?

  6. So what is a riot or a march? I'm hearing both things.

  7. There were actually two groups of protesters and the ones marching were far more peaceful and respectful. Not really such a big deal to block traffic for a few minutes especially when you consider the magnitude of the issue.

  8. Black. Lives. Matter.

    They should make the day a national holiday AND pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. If not, vote them out.

  9. Didn't Missouri pass a law banning protesters from blocking the road? I guess it didn't make much of a difference.

  10. the protester with the megaphone was making some pretty nasty threats. That's not a good representation of the movement. Actually, there are a lot of good people who want to improve lives in this country, not tear everyone apart and intimidate.

  11. I'm guessing they didn't visit the Capital Grille after the party. Too bad, those guys needed the tips. Sad.
