Kansas City 'Proud Boy' Suspect Stays Locked Up Despite Back Pain

Here are the rules and the "new normal" for life in Kansas City as we, hopefully, are near the conclusion of the pandemic.

Locals can repeatedly knock over an urban core Hardee's and leave jail later in the day . . . But a panty raid targeting politicos is tantamount to treason and will earn stern rebuke. 

As always, TKC will never disobey the rules, we just want to know what they are and the penalties associated with getting caught on the wrong side of laws that are obviously in flux.

Also, I might grab some tacos later in the day and clearly payment seems optional. 

But I digress . . .

From a lesser blog, here's the latest on a suspect in the CAPITAL INSURRECTION that now comprises half of CNN's content nowadays . . .

"Olathe Proud Boy William “Billy” Chrestman will remain in jail pending trial on charges related to his alleged involvement in the Capitol insurrection, a federal judge ruled Friday.

"U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly denied Chrestman’s request to be released from custody, upholding a previous judge’s ruling that he was a danger to the community. The Olathe man has been incarcerated since federal agents arrested him on Feb 11.

"Kelly went through a laundry list of Chrestman’s alleged actions on the day of the riot that the judge said were captured by dozens of photos and videos. The actions, Kelly said, included Chrestman wielding an ax handle, encouraging the crowd to storm the Capitol and confronting law enforcement, telling an officer that “You shoot and I’ll take your f------ ass out!”

As is his right, the judge chastised the dude and referenced the CAPITOL INSURRECTION as part of the reason for keeping the retired Marine and selfie-enthusiast locked up despite his pleas regarding back pain.

Dont' get it twisted, TKC doesn't have much sympathy for most people in the can and the dude isn't the "Jean Valjean" of Olathe. In fact, MOST DUDES in the clink claim that they don't deserve the punishment.

And so we offer a few more links on this ongoing drama and a date which will live in infamy or at least until midterm elections . . .
