KC City Council looks to ban registrants from working any place where alcohol is served because of victim cult logic

Someone at the KC city council must be inebriated to even consider such an asinine proposal. I'm no fan of alcohol, but serving a drink in a bar while on the job is NOT how sexual assaults in bars begin. As usual, the logic coming from the victim cult mouthpiece is nonsensical.

Proposed ordinance would keep sex offenders from serving liquor in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — To serve alcohol in Kansas City, you need a liquor card. The public safety committee is considering a new proposed ordinance that would change that, but some agencies are concerned.

The Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault, or MOCSA, is speaking out. Victoria Pickering, Director of Advocacy for MOCSA, said, "The goal is to prevent individuals who have a history of committing sexual offenses from being able to work with alcohol which is the number one drug that's used to facilitate sexual assault."

Kansas City Councilman Quinton Lucas acknowledged, "The fear is that a rapist is going to serve your daughter a drink. That's not the case."

Lucas went on to say that, "I get the concern. We're going to make sure that we hear them out, but we're also going to make sure that we're allowing opportunities for ex-offenders, those who have not been in these sorts of things, those who are looking for a second chance."

Kevin Timmons, owner of Nick & Jake's and the head of the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association, told 41 Action News when it comes to violent offenders, "Those people are all managed by the parole system and they're not allowed to get liquor. They're not allowed to work in restaurants that have alcohol."

Thousands of people apply for liquor cards in Kansas City each year. Timmons said over 99 percent of them are approved without any issues. He called the system, "archaic," sharing that Kansas does not require liquor cards.

The public safety committee did not have enough votes to take action on the proposed ordinance Wednesday. If it ultimately passes the ordinance, it will move to the full council for a vote.

    Update A vigilante group made a fake story on an alleged murder

    The Macomb County Sheriff's Office has declared "FAKE NEWS" after an article began to spread on social media claiming that a "vigilante serial killer" was on the loose in the community and had murdered three pedophiles in one week.

    The article falsely claims:

    Law enforcement officials in Michigan’s Macomb County have held a press conference to announce they believe a vigilante targeting pedophiles is on the loose, with reports that three local offenders have been found dead over the past week.

    The Macomb County Sheriff's Office responded Monday morning on Facebook, confirming that the article was, indeed, fake news.
    The article includes several sensational details about the made-up incident. It claims that three men on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry have been found dead over the past week, and that one victim's genitals had been removed and placed into a blender.

    There have been no official reports of sex offenders being targeted and killed in Macomb County over the past week.
    Here is a link to the article in question.

    The article may appear convincing. It was posted on a website calling itself nbc9news.com, which may lead some to believe it to be affiliated with the television broadcast network NBC.

    There are several NBC affiliates throughout the country that broadcast on a virtual channel 9, but none of them appear to be associated with nbc9news.com.

    The homepage of nbc9news.com displays several articles that are actually not fake news, such as a story about a Brooklyn mother who sued a bus company after her daughter was dropped off at the wrong stop. This story was originally reported by the New York Post in June, and nbc9news.com's report appears to be factual, citing the Post as a source.

    In 2016, FactCheck.org posted a guide on how to spot fake news.

    If something looks like it may be false, readers are advised to consider the source of what they are reading. The article on nbc9news.com about the Brooklyn mother cited the New York Post as a source, and a visit to the Post's original article proved it to be factual.

    However, the article about the made-up vigilante cited the Macomb County Sheriff's Office as a source, but a visit to the MCSO's Facebook page revealed the story to be false.
