Posted on 10/28/2013 6:36:58 PM PDT by Altura Ct.
Councilman Jermaine Reed is not going to like this: Police in Kansas City, Missouri are picking on black people. Again.
This time the targets are "unruly teenagers" from a 95 percent black high school called DeLaSalle. Last Thursday, a bus driver removed five DeLaSalle students from the bus for violence and mayhem.
The Fox affiliate in Kansas City picks up the story about how, soon after, large-scale black mob violence erupted --- everything except the black part:
A wild fight broke out, and police needed pepper spray to quell the situation.
Les Brown said he was nearby when the big brawl broke out, working in the store at St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. "The whole block -- the intersection of 39th down past the bus stop -- was nothing but kids and police cars," Brown said.
Brown said it seemed as if people were fighting everywhere he looked, including teenagers who were grappling with police officers. Brown says he went back inside the store, and locked the door to protect customers.
"There were a lot of kids walking down the streets and the police officers told them to go home," Brown said, "They wouldn't go."
And five of them were arrested -- three females and two males. KCPD spokespeople say that includes two 17-year-olds -- James Olser and Nakidra Hawkins. Both are charged with trespassing -- and Hawkins is charged with hitting a police officer.
Everyone arrested was black. Everyone kicked off the bus was black. And everyone fighting in the streets of this black neighborhood was black.
That did not make the local media accounts.

Having raised three of them myself...why can’t we just pepper spray all young men between the ages of 13 and 33 on a daily basis? *SMIRK*
It's only going to get worse.
We could paint the buses Pink, with Pink interior. Works for prisoners.
“That did not make the local media accounts.”
DUH... Of course not. It wouldn’t fit the approved narrative.
Do you think they want the local SEIU/OFA-types protesting outside their homes, threatening their children at school, and ending their careers?
In a 95% black high school a fairly large number must be half-black..
meaning no blacker than they are white..
BUT positioning themself as BLACK.... in “BLACKFACE” posturing...
must suck being the 5% non “black”...
Let them stew in their own juices.
I make my child get off the Plaza after dark.
Mind you, the Plaza has a Burberry, a Lulu Lemon, Brooks Brothers, Mac, Eddie Bauer, Coach, Williams Sonoma, Ann Taylor, St. John Knits, Restoration Hardware, North Face, along with a bunch of restaurants, law firms, insurance companies, accountants. It is deluxe. (In the old days it was nicer when the shops were local and not chains.)
But at the same time, it can be dangerous.
Interesting how few really “black” people there are up north these days.
I was down in Florida and Alabama this month and saw some truly “black” people. Kind of forgot how black they are.
The Kansas City Star has refused to report this. The local evening newscasts have not done any better. The Plaza, once the premier shopping district in the Midwest, is doomed. It’s once innovative architecture and layout, the model for modern shopping centers, cannot withstand this assault. The black political mafia is fully behind this assault. One of the biggest Black offenders is the Mayor’s son. He is a thug and his antics are ignored by the police department.
Kansas City is a Detroit wannabe and they are well on their way to becoming Detroit II. Quite a spectacle.
I have noticed that a lot of “COPS” episodes are from Kansas City. Hmmm. Wonder why?
Did Obama claim that any one of them might have been the son he never had? You know, like TM?
Pepper spray? Are the police feeling the ammunition shortage, too?
you’ll have to toss at least half the “girls” in there too, nowadays. tough little b’s.

That’s really too bad. I remember going to the Plaza beginning in the late 1940’s to see the Christmas lights and then making the drive up Ward Parkway to see the lights on all the “big houses”. My own kids always went there during the early 1980’s with all their high school friends. We also used to go to all the concerts that were held in Brush Creek. Were eating at the PIII the night Brush Creek flooded and came crashing through the window at the restaurant. What a mess. The Side Door was our fav place to go for lunch and after work for several Salty Dogs.
It was a lot better during the era of Jack Henry, Cricket West, Cake Box Bakery and the other small stores. So sad to see so much being turned into places where it isn’t safe to go at night anymore. Haven’t been back up there in years but at least my kids and I have some good memories.
Wasn’t DelaSalle at Catholic high school at one time years and years ago or did my photographic memory run out of film again?
When I was a kid, my girlfriends and I would get on the Oak street bus for 40 cents and head to the Plaza and stay there all day. Man, those Cake Box chocolate chip cookies........there is nothing better, wish I knew where to get one.
And Chasnoff’s, I used to work there, Adlers, yes, Cricket West............Emery Bird Thayer’s what a cool place.
But now it is not safe.
DeLaSalle was a Catholic school, you are right.
Google up what Heinlein said about raising an adolescent male sometime.
“But now it is not safe.”
How many other formerly “safe” areas are we going to abandon to thug “culture”?
How many times are we going to move away from creeping ghettos?
How long are we going to subsidize a violent, dependent subculture with our escalating taxes, only to have them expand geometrically in order to “get mo’ check”?
Oh. Excuse me. I suppose that’s racis’...
I am just a tired mom, I don’t know. I give up. Everyone I talk to is a Democrat. So I don’t talk to anyone.
I am also glad I don’t live there anymore and nothing could make me move back.
The Plaza used to have a Brooks Brothers. They pulled out last year. The only Brooks Brothers stores in the KC metro area are now on the Kansas side. (As I found out much to my annoyance the last time I went to the Plaza.)
Wow, I didn’t realize that.
I rarely shop the Plaza, I shop on line or on the Kansas side.
When I did shop the Plaza, it was Brooks Brothers mainly for dress clothes for my boys. Well, that’s it then. Only downhill from there.
Your memories of the Plaza brought back memories of my own !
Kansas City was my hometown and the Plaza was where we did all of our shopping. Mother even bought all of our groceries at Wolfermans, and I remember one particular day during WWII when she was waiting at the bakery counter there to make a purchase and fainted dead away ! Since I was quite small, I was mortified...but she was quickly resusitated,so I breathed a sigh of relief. (She had just donated blood for the war effort shortly before...which explained it !) Strange what we remember, isn’t it ?
Had forgotten all about Adlers, Chasnoff’s, EBT and, of course, Harzfeld’s. Office where I worked for a while was right over the Cake Box. We used to get some kind of scrumptuous coffee cake there. Had lots of buttery filling. My kids were raised on Cake Box cookies. Remember Putsch’s 210. Used to go there for lunch when they had their weekly fashion show. Called it the “cackle club”. Just a wonderful area to have grown up but so long ago.
Also a place right off the Plaza called the Levee. We’d go there and drink and eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. And Winstead’s Drive-In which was a fav of many generations.
No place like it at Christmas with all the lights and the fountains. Why are so many places being ruined by trashy people that don’t appreciate the history of what they have???? Breaks my heart.
putschs was great. Harzfelds was great. Those were the days, huh? I miss those days.
Thanks for sharing. Interesting about your mom. Wolferman’s still has a catalog you can order baked goods from. At least the name is still around, probably tastes somewhat different. I do remember all the wonderful things they had at Hall’s.
We lived in Johnson County but I worked on the Plaza so did all my shopping there. Just a great area to raise kids back then.
Nice try to be fair, but this has been going on a lot longer than that in the black schools. Ask a white person who was in the minority in a black high school in the late 60s how that was.
I wouldn’t doubt it.
How ‘bout those Chiefs?
In St. Louis, thugs have ruined three malls...but all you’ll hear is that it’s the economy, it’s the location, it’s the design. The truth is, the locusts came and devoured, scaring away those who actually spend.
The old St. Louis Mills is showing signs of collapse, too - because no one wants to be where they don’t feel safe, as evidenced by the curfew rules enacted because of fights and mini-riots.
Until our society gets honest about the problem, destruction awaits other businesses, too.
Don’t know visited but never lived there..
Well then, it's obvious this area is just plain racist!
Earlier this year, Councilman Reed made a discovery: Of the 34 people cited for violating the curfew at The Plaza, all were black.
Reed did not like that. Reed was the youngest person ever elected to the city council when the then-26 year old took his seat in 2011. But he had plenty of training: During college, he completed the Congressional Black Caucus Institute's "Political Education and Leadership Boot Camp." Later, he worked in the resource development office of the Black Caucus and also for the City of Washington, D.C. as a financial analyst.
Councilman Reed was only saying what many people were thinking: There is a big problem centered around black people at The Country Club Plaza.
Some residents says black mob violence is out of control, and has been for a while. Reed says black people are the victims of police prejudice, not the perpetrators of mob violence.
"The data is the data. That's what I'm looking at," Reed said. "We've got to be honest and have an honest conversation. Say, 'Here's what it says and have an honest conversation, as well.
Why, yes let's have an HONEST conversation, shall we?
