Hearne: KC Cops Flood Plaza Passing Out Pro Curfew Flyers

IMG_2168Everybody’s a lobbyist these days…


Not only were Kansas City Police out in force – four cop cars, 18 off duty officers and a pair of mounted police in front of Seville on the Plaza – they were passing out flyers and urging passersby to call KC Mayor Sly James office and tell him that they want the kids off the Plaza and a year round 9 p.m. curfew.

Unsaid, but understood, the African American kids.

How do I know for sure that KC police were handing out the flyers?

Because a woman in a KCPD uniform identifying herself as a police officer came up to me, handed me a small flyer with instructions on how to contact and complain to James and 4th District “council people.” She also asked me in no uncertain terms to please contact the mayor’s office to help get the curfew increased from just the summer months to year round.

That as two mounted police officers stood a few feet away and handful of other cops fanned out along the along the sidewalk in front of the entrance to the Cinemark Palace on the Plaza movie theater.

IMG_2167Any trouble tonight, I asked the lady cop?

“We just had a big disturbance with girls fighting in the park by the J.C. Nichols fountain,” she answered. “We have 18 off duty officers down here tonight and five more on duty police that I know of.”

So what did the flyer the policewoman was passing out say?

“Please Direct Your Concerns Regarding The Plaza To:

For the record, I’ve included the typo on Marcason’s email

Like I said, everybody wants to be a lobbyist.

      Talked about that with Nigro last night. He said all the TV news crews were down there from the shooting the night before. The TV cams were in Westport, but the cops were on the Plaza.

  2. Skip it, party in the suburbs says:

    Murders in Westport, Douchbags at PnL. Gangs of urban scholars intimidating you in front of a chain mall store at the Plaza.

    There is now no reason to go to KC this summer barring an occasional Royals game.

    • the dude says:

      Build a bar in your basement, 50’s style.

      • Brother DoucheBag says:

        I love PnL. Its so fun! (flips hair) But seriously, blonde at “Hotel” named Liz. My. God. Straight out of Playboy. So whatever. The Douchebags have it!

    After the post massacre love that the Tsarnaev brothers are getting in the media this topic is ripe for 60 Minutes, the NAACP and the ACLU.

    It’s all whitey’s fault. Always has been, always will be.

    Nah nah nah nah…nah nah nah nah….Hey Plaza….Goodbye.
