Amid spiking numbers across the nation, the Commander-In-Chief is now taking action and putting pressure on local leaders to confront an American crime wave.
To wit, we ask . . .
CAN PREZ BIDEN CURB KANSAS CITY CRIME?!?!
Obviously he's going to need help and, as usual, there are longstanding local problems that stand in the way.
More to the point . . .
There's a horrific divide betwixt Kansas City's progressive and Democratic Party aligned political leadership vs. police. So encouragement from the Prez will have to overcome this obstacle.
Right now both Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker and KCMO Mayor Quinton Lucas are feuding with cops and the police board in court . . . Obviously, cooperation in crime fighting is going to be tough.
Still, there's hope here because, at the very least there is recognition of a problem which is the first step in developing a solution.
Nevertheless . . .
Ironically, whilst Prez Biden wants COVID cash to help curb violence across the nation, it's doubtful that "defunding" police by 42 MILLION BUCKS will help reduce worsening local crime numbers. Meanwhile, Mayor Q, his supporters and paid trolls via social media still claim they'll be giving more cash to po-po.
However . . .
THERE'S STILL NO BUDGET FOR MAYOR Q'S POLICE BUDGET 'REALLOCATION' PLAN AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC!!!
But I digress . . .
The point here is that amid rising crime the Prez is stepping in across the nation and literally attempting to play peacemaker.
