Don't worry that headline wasn't supposed to make sense in much the same way that Mayor's Q social media stunt hopes to confuse locals about his standing on funding police.
First, let's pay credit to his tech confusion . . . Here are the basics from a social media open letter posted by Mayor Q today . . .
The officer states their coworkers are in the 1-5 year range with the department. Mayor Q posted it on his Facebook page Thursday morning.

"I think more fundamentally the people of Kansas City have a fundamental right to say, 'Where's all the money going?' Lucas said in an interview Thursday.

We like Fox4 reporting inasmuch as they at least offer the surface level of this story.
