Kansas City's Mayor Is Calling For Changes To Police Department Policies
A conversation with Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas about police reform, police Chief Rick Smith and the city budget.
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas isn't calling for the Kansas City Police Department to be defunded, or for the firing of its police chief. What he is asking for is a series of changes to department policy that would, among other things, require officers to intervene when they come across other officers using excessive force. "The better rules you have, the better processes you have," said Lucas, "the more truth comes to light."
