A “Back the Blue” rally will call for the resignation of Trump-bashing Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas (D) on Wednesday.
The “Back the Blue” protesters, based in Washington, D.C., will hold a rally at 6:00 p.m. at the Hodge Park Amphitheater in Kansas City, Missouri, to show their support for the Kansas City Police Department, as well as demand a recall of Mayor Lucas, according to a report by KMBC News 9.
The group’s recall effort comes from what it calls recent “defunding efforts made by the city council.”
Mayor Lucas, however, claims that the money hasn’t been taken from the police department, but instead it would go into a separate fund controlled by both the board of police commissioners and the city manager — money that the police would still ultimately be spending.
Meanwhile, several local civil rights groups are renewing their call for the removal of Kansas City Police Chief
