Kansas City Attorney/Activist Threatens Local Police and Their Families: ‘We Know Where Y’All Live’

A radical lawyer and civil rights activist is under fire after threatening Kansas City police and their families in an speech addressing alleged police brutality last week. “You don’t think that we know where y’all live? You don’t think we don’t know where your children go to school?!” the attorney fumed in angry rant that was captured on video.

Stacy Shaw is the attorney for a pregnant black woman who was arrested at a KC gas station late last month. For the past 10 days, Shaw has been leading an “occupation” of City Hall in Kansas City, Missouri to protest the arrest.

“We are not being kind with you anymore,” said Shaw. “We have been courteous. We have been respectful, but we aren’t doing that anymore,” she warned.

Shaw said she is seeking to have the licenses of the peace officers involved in the arrest revoked, and then threatened to use her allies in the education system to turn their children against them.

“We are going to start showing things with your children’s teachers,” the attorney said. “You don’t think that we have extensive researchers? You don’t think that we know where y’all live? You don’t think we don’t know where your children go to school?!” she bellowed through a bullhorn.  “Who the f—ck do you think we are?!”

Left-wing activists have been camped out in front of City Hall to protest the arrest of 25-year-old Deja Stallings who is nine months pregnant.

The KCPD was called on September 30 to respond to an unlawful gathering of about a dozen people who were milling around a gas station parking lot, allegedly getting ready to release some balloons.

According to the police statement, the owner of the gas station and convenience store told officers that “he wanted everyone off the property who wasn’t buying anything.”

When officers attempted to arrest a man who was interfering with their investigation, members of the now unruly mob moved in to stop them from making the arrest, allowing the man to run away. The man, however, tripped as officers approached him, according to police.

“At that time, a woman (Stallings) and man tried to pull the suspect away from officers,” the statement said, stressing that officers gave them “several verbal warnings to leave.”

The security footage shows Stallings step between an officer and the man. According to the police statement, an officer then attempted to arrest Stallings who “continued to physically resist arrest at which point he placed her on the ground to effect the arrest.”

“Then she was handcuffed, turned to her side and immediately placed in a seated position,” police said.

Camera phone footage from witness Chanel Le’Yoshe shows an officer briefly putting his knee on Stallings’ lower back while he was cuffing her. According to the police statement, the officer who knelt on her “took care not to apply pressure with his legs.”


KCPD release a longer video of scene leading up to arrest of the woman. Her arrest takes place outside of the camera’s view, but the footage does show scuffles breaking out in the parking lot where people were gathering prior to the arrival of police.

Both the Jackson County Prosecutor’s office and KCPD are reviewing the arrest, KMBC News reported.

On Thursday, KCPD released a statement saying they have provided prosecutors with everything they’ve requested, including:

– A copy of all the associated reports including supplementals
– Internal investigative report for the purpose of investigating policy violations
– 2 hrs of surveillance video
– 17 dashcam videos
– 911 call recording
– Air tape recording
– Dispatch record printout

“We remain cooperative with the prosecutor’s office and will continue to do so throughout the entirety of the review,” KCPD said.

The 50 to 100 occupiers at City Hall are demanding that Police Chief Richard Smith resign and that the officer involved be fired.

The agitators are also calling for the city to “redistribute 50 percent of the department’s budget to social services to help the Black community.”

“We will not leave until we are physically removed or our demands are met,” Shaw said on October 5.


Shaw is a practicing Buddhist, according to The Kansas City Star, and reportedly “chants every day for world peace”—but that clearly doesn’t apply to police officers and their families.

“You will have no one—no one who loves you after we get done with this next campaign,” she said in her hateful rant, last week.

“I don’t make threats, but we’re going to start sharing this information so your children can see it,” the attorney declared.

“There will not be a place of peace. There will not be a place of respite. There will not be a place of respect left for anyone who wears this badge. Not one single place. We will make sure that even your children can’t stand you,” she concluded.

In its glowing profile, last month, The Star portrayed Shaw as a “fearless revolutionary” who sings “freedom songs” in jail.

The lawyer/activist has reportedly been arrested twice since she started protesting to “dismantle systemic racism and white supremacy.”

“This is a revolution for the soul of America,” Shaw, told the Star.

Brad Lemon, President of the Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 99 put out a statement on Facebook Saturday saying they are aware of the threats, and are “working” with authorities.

“We are aware of the video of Attorney Stacy Shaw threatening our members and their families. Our Lodge has begun work with city and state leadership,” Lemon said.

“As always we urge our membership to remain calm and act as we have been trained to do. We should always be aware of our surroundings and potential threats. Yes, Shaw’s threats serve to raise that threat level. We must remember that while a small number of people may be violent and threatening our families, the majority of this city supports you,” he continued.

“We do this job and have an understanding of the danger that accompanies our oath. Our families do not deserve what Shaw is threatening,” Lemon’s statement concluded.

Kansas City came out en masse to support the police on Saturday, following a Trump Car Parade that featured thousands of participants.

Nearly two thousand people in the Kansas City area attended the “Back the Blue” rally in Overland Park, Kansas, according to the Kansas City, Kansas police chief.

  1. I would love to know how many of the “occupants” at the protest are actually citizens of Kansas City, MO.

    • Agree. My favorite line in this article is Shaw saying “I don’t make threats..” right before making threats. The woman is a delusional idiot.

  2. Shaw should be indicted on charges of threatening police and child endangerment.

    People like Shaw won’t stop until legal consequences hit them.

    • Legal nothing – these people have been so ill-educated that they are beyond hope. The people that are blindly following her are useful idiots.
      Their demands are acquiesce to our every whim when and how we want it or we will kill you – slowly.
      There is no reasoning, no thoughtful dialogue and most certainly, no discussing facts with this person.
      What you are witnessing is the end result of a half century of indoctrination in our public school system.

    • She should be removed from the bar as well as being jailed for being a domestic terrorist.

  3. Mayor Lucas is supporting this insanity and maybe he is the one that should be removed for the safety of Kansas City.

  4. State and Federal laws should be amended to provide maximum penalties for scumbags like Shaw who threaten the lives or the well being of our Police officers and their families. Whether the threat involves physical harm or providing the psychotic street mob with their addresses and The locations their children’s schools. Enough is enough! – these violent, filthy, hate-filled anarchist animals need to be smacked down – AND HARD!!…

    • Shouldn’t the address and phone number of this wonderful lady and her supporters be published. Not as a threat just for fair play and a balanced demonstration of what she advocates. I’d also include their photos and schedules.

  5. All police should walk off the job 2 days a week announced in advance. Let’s see how that works.

  6. This idiot should be subject to discipline by the Missouri Bar, at the very least suspension if not permanent disbarment. She is a disgrace to the legal profession and a disgrace to society at large.

  7. Nope. They’ll just get bailed out and get the Bill Ayers treatment. She’ll get some cushy university job where she can poison the minds of your children. Not sure when you’re going to see that the law no longer applies to these communist agitators.

    • This attorney has “Attorney” emblazoned on her jacket because otherwise nobody could tell she was an attorney. She acts like an idiot and talks like an idiot, so most people will just think she is an idiot rather than an attorney.

  8. I didn’t see anything even remotely suspect about that police action. What do these demonstrators want? That the police should just overlook violations if the perpetrators are black? Why, yes. That is exactly what they want.

  9. In a sane world she would be disbarred next week.

  10. Stacy Shaw should be removed from the bar for making threats against police officers and their families. She is a domestic terrorist and should be treated as such.

  11. Someone in Kansas needs to file a Bar complaint. I’m happy to help but live in a different state.

  12. Report her to the state bar disciplinary committee. They should suspend her for threatening kids.

  13. StASSy is very proud of the Magna Cum Laude she got at Thurgood Marshall School of Law. The school gives them away to anyone with a GPA as low as 3.25. Most schools of higher education reserve that honor for 3.8 to 3.9 GPA s, at TMSL a B- gets you there. It appears that this hair hat is trying to score the ghetto lottery for anyone refusing the lawful commands of police officers. Threating first responders and their families on record shows just how little she learned at TMSL. The Kansas Bar should do her client’s a favor and disbar her and in her next gig ‘I do want fries with that’.

  14. This woman (a deranged lawyer apparently) who spoke and represents all of BLM is a PI* and probably most of the criminals lawlessly RIOTING BLM Animals in our streets are PI*S! That’s right not the cops protecting and defending ALL the American people. These PI*S beat, murder, rape and are STEAL EVERONE BLIND while burning our cities to the ground. Those are the Blackmailing PI*S making threats to our brave Law Enforcement Officer’s children. May they all Rot in Hell! The Law Enforcement Officers guard and protect the good decent people that work for a living and Pay Taxes. Yes the demented rabid dog making threats is the one who is not good enough to shine the cops’ or anyone else’s shoes! She’s a toxic rabid foaming at the mouth Dog! Stupid lazy useless pieces of CRIMINAL Scum. Oh BTW, ALL LIVES MATTER! Your black lives are No More Important than anyone else’s lives. Got that J**A**.

    I just learned this really low IQ so called attorney tried to deny she said it after screaming into a megaphone like a lunatic and the fool was recorded. News for you IF you’re a lawyer you should have a clue about PROOF, you poor excuse for a human and a Really, Really BAD lawyer. Try a paper route for a living, that’s more your speed. MOR**!

  15. Once you have screamed threats like a lunatic over a Megaphone at the police and been recorded, you cannot lie and say I never said that. Most lawyers would not need that explained to them!
