KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -- Kansas City, Kansas, is learning what it means when a billionaire backs a social justice cause.

Team Roc took out a full-page ad demanding a full investigation into the KCK Police Department.

“The police and eyewitness reports of criminal behavior perpetrated by members of the Kansas City, Kansas police department, over the past several decades, are staggering. They detail graphic accounts of rape, murder, sex trafficking and corruption are so rampant and so blatant, it would be shocking if even a single allegation were true.”

The plea is directed at Associate Attorney General Gupta.

The ad reveals that witnesses and other information is available to the FBI.

“And yet you refuse to act”
