Death Of Tyre Nichols Proves Threat Of Kansas City Police Local Control

Amid a great deal of social media posturing and self-congratulatory chatter . . . Our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY serves merely to offer a counterpoint regarding a local aspect of activist demands that always seem to accompany the threat of rioting. 

The cowtown connection . . . 

The tragic death of Tyre Nichols should remind us that "local control" will not solve claims of brutality against law enforcement. In fact, state administration of Kansas City police offers more checks & balances for residents & voters.  

Actually . . .

This police death disproves a great deal about the mainstream "social justice" narrative . . .

Mainly, that diversity & equity are the answer to complaints targeting police. 

As many others have pointed out or failed to point out . . .

The officers accused of brutality are Black, the police Chief is Black and there's NOT lack of African-American representation in Memphis. 

Still, the outcry over "systemic" issues persist . . . We won't pretend to have the answers. 

But here's what we know for sure . . . 

Handing over police control to Mayor & Council will be the final nail in Kansas City's coffin.

The not-so-fun fact . . . Insiders know that police leaders aren't completely adverse to this deal if it gets them higher salaries and more benefits. So we're headed in that direction faster than most residents understand.

And this brings us back to a tragic death and the punditry following the demise that doesn't really help anybody but advertisers . . .
