TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY WONDERS ABOUT THE WHEREABOUTS OF THE MAYOR'S SON KYLE JAMES AMID A RECENT DEADLY SHOOTING IN WESTPORT!!! DOES SOCIAL MEDIA HAVE ANSWERS FOR LOCAL INQUIRING MINDS?!?



I must admit . . .

KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS KNOW EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON IN THIS WICKED LITTLE DOWN!!!

Take a look at this:



TKC makes no claims about the validity of this image . . . Kyle James was not available for comment at the time of this publication. He won't accept my friend request . . . Yet.

However . . . What we know as fact . . .

A FACEBOOK SCREEN CAP FEATURING KANSAS CITY MAYOR'S SON KYLE JAMES IS LIGHTING UP THE INTERNETS!!!

Happier times in Kansas City:



Text on the message:

"Me and my Lil bro an hour before he got killed - We did our thing at the concert and it was the happiest I've seen him. You'll b with me forever bro"

Again and for the record . . .

THIS UNCONFIRMED MESSAGE CONCERNING THE MAYOR'S SON IS LIGHTING UP THE KANSAS CITY INTERNETS!!! THE BAD PART IN ALL OF THIS IS THE MAYOR SLY'S LACK OF TRANSPARENCY CONCERNING THE ANTICS OF KYLE JAMES!!! SO TKC INQUIRING MINDS MIGHT NEVER KNOW THE FACTS FOR SURE!!!

On the other hand, if they do ask and get an answer . . . We'll giggle at citizen media screwing with corporate news hegemony no matter what the answer.

To wit . . . Ask a (useless) "journalist" about the image later . . . BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU SAW IT FIRST HERE ON TKC THANKS TO OUR MOST KICK-ASS TIPSTERS!!!

DEVELOPING!!!

From what I hear, he was right there when it happened. A friend of mine who was outside the crime scene after the shooting said Kyle was yelling and cussing at PD officers and detectives. Typical Kyle

Anonymous said...

KC Star is picking up on it too;

"Responding to reports that Mayor Sly James’ son may have witnessed the shooting, the mayor’s spokesman, Danny Rotert, e-mailed, “whether or not the mayor’s son was near, the shooting adds to a pattern of senseless violence that has to stop.”

@10:20 - Please post that link. Tony probably won't care. Did they post the photo?

If you want to catch the next homicide shooter, follow Kyle. I'm sure he'll be close by!

Just a one liner. Not much coverage.

Nice photo TKC TIPSTERS. Tony you're an idiot.

Mayor Sly James it is time for you to start answering questions.

Where is Kyle James? Probably having a secret meeting with Mayor Sly James, Jan Marcason, and the rest of the city council.

Damage control at the tax payers expense!!!

xalti said...

KCMO makes Merriam, KS look better every day.

Tom said...

Hopefully the security cameras down there caught it on video and they have something to go on because I'm sure Kyle was acting hard and won't cooperate with the investigation. If that happens, it should be national news.

On another note, I wonder if the suspects went north on SW Trfwy after the shooting. If so, the red light camera at 39/SW Trfwy would have gotten them on video. If that solves the case, I'd like to see Tracy Ward's response to getting rid of the red light camera there.

not quite up to date on my gang signs, but looks to me like the "victim" in the picture is throwing up his set.... just sayin

Super Dave said...

I say we just throw the whole James gang in the river so they can float to St Louis. Up to St Louis rather or not to keep them.

Anonymous said...

$100 bucks says he won't cooperate with the investigation. $100 more says that he'll end up passing along info that he didn't share with PD to someone who will retaliate on the suspects.

Either way, national media should know.

Anonymous said...

Something's gotta give.

KC's crime and homicide rate is rising each day.

Sly and the Council don't care at all and are doing everything but supporting the PD and other groups in helping with the problem.

Kyle James' drunk and disorderly incident at Fran's in P&L was the start. Then punching the girl in the face at the Point at 44/Bellview. Then bashing in a guy's face with a lamp at the Hotel Phillips. Now this. What's next?

Joey said...

Hopefully this changes the Mayor's outlook on homicides in the city because this very well could have been Kyle. Probably won't change anything though.

JC said...

Well said, Joey.

Hey mayor ya gonna make your thug son go talk to the police like u ask the east side folks to do??????? Time to remove the fucking ghetto rat out of the mayors seat. He has no place running this town when his son is an eye witness to a murder and told the cops to fuck off. Nigger

Anonymous said...

The key to solving this homicide is this like Forte said in his blog the other day: all we need to do is have Forte arrive on scene and as soon as he steps out of his car, Kyle James will tell him what happened like everyone else on the east side does.

"While the number of homicides year-to-date have increased, so has the clearance rate. So far this year, 29 percent of this year’s homicides have been cleared, and the clearance rate total includes 9 (46%) homicides that have been cleared from 2011 for a total clearance rate of 75 percent. Most jurisdictions report clearance rates based on the number of homicide cases cleared in a single calendar year regardless of what year the homicide occurred. Our clearance rate of 75 percent is based on the nationally recognized standard reporting of clearance rates. I note that the 75 percent clearance rate is being reporting according to best practices that are nationally recognized, however, I don’t want to play the numbers game."

Let's play the #s game.....29% Yes that's right, 29%. Anyone can add stats from previous cases that have been solved to this years stats. It obviously inflates them to make the clearance rate look better. Fact of the matter is that only 29% have been solved this year.

Seems like a perfectly logical time to cut public safety! 8-10 officers quit last month, 15 paramedics quitting this month. Maybe Sly-bama's toy train can double as an ambulance and we can put the suspects up in his new hotel downtown. Perhaps in a show of appreciation for their new west edge TIF high-rise, the attorneys of Polsinelli Shughart will put in a little pro bono work to help prosecute them all. Hope...Change!

Instead of civil litigation, perhaps Sly should have chosen to practice criminal law.

"James Gang"

Heh, heh...

chuck said...

By the way, Tony's previous assertion, that there was no musical connection, i.e. Hip/Hop and America's Pub, to this murder, is specious.

"So it was that lots of local news organizations had a puzzle piece here, a puzzel piece there concerning the late night shooting of Kendrick L. Williams early Sunday morning. It appears Williams was a 22 year-old rapper who had performed that night at Ink Magazine's Middle Of The Map music fest in Westport.

Ink is owned by the Kansas City Star "

this from kcconfidential--

I like the part where the Kansas City Star, promoting diverstiy and multiculturalism with a "Rap" concert has a fuckin murder right after the get together.

I swear, it is hard, but it try to NEVER buy anything from buisiness' that advertise in our so called paper of record.

chuck said...

Here is Hearne Christopher's from kcconfidential's shot across Tony's bow.

"So much for the local blogger who, aside from providing a few links to local news stories, stated incorrectly - according to the victim's mother and Westport sources - that hip-hop couldn't be blamed for the killing because the music fest was attended by a crowd that "was almost COMPLETELY white and without a single relevant rap music or hip-hop act."

Hold it right there...

According to Westport sources and the victim's mom, the shooting took place outside but near the Middle of the Map fest, after the apparently musically irrelevant Williams had finished his gig."

Ouch, that had to hurt.

Actually I think Tony does a pretty good job diggin out stories the Star won't touch, however, when ya miss, ya miss, and he fuckin missed by a mile.

Yeah Tony, it WAS Rap Music, and to make it way worse, it involves the usual African American element of violence and stupidity, with the Mayor's son----AGAIN!

Brutal.

Hey 10:42 Tom,

Are you stupid or just drunk? Red light cameras take still pictures of cars that are in the intersection when the light has turned red. Are you saying that all murderers run red lights and, therefore, red light cameras are a viable means of catching them? What if, by some strange turn of events, they didn't run that red light but, rather, waited until it turned green? Your red light camera wouldn't have taken their picture.

Cutting public safety? You mean the $7.5 million from the $131 million fire department budget? Maybe we should cut the free take home cars and fuel to police and use that money for more cops.

How come we never hear of the brand new $500,000 fleet of take home SUV's that fire department management takes home and fuels at the city pumps? And they aren't even on call!

Super Dave said...

Hey T! Hearne in a nice way says your full of shit over at KCC.

Funny how Hearne picks on this thug story when he has his own thug trying to be a writter at KCC.

Heck Glazer and the James Gang might be best of buds hang out to gather and swap stories on who they have screwed over while each claiming to be better than the other. Heck the James Gang likes the white women and Glazer likes the black women lots in common wouldn't you say.

Just a thought.

Does it really qualify as news when a rapper gets shot? Seems like that's in the job description.

Tom said...

7:02, in case you didn't know, which by your post I take it you didnt.

The red light cameras record video of the entire intersection 24/7. That way if something happens such as an accident not involving a red light violation. When someone runs a red light it takes still photographs of the violation AND video. Sit in a 10am traffic docket at city court and you'll see that for yourself.

I'm not saying all murderers run red lights but if they had just shot someone in a populated area like Westport, its likely they were wanting to get out of the area pretty quick. Regardless as I said, if they drove through the intersection, they were on video.

Tom is right

And of course, the KC STAR has disabled comments on the story since the line about Kyle was added. Guess all the info will just have to come out on TKC.

Anonymous said...

Just a thought, do you think the Mayor is trying to ruin the city??? He has the police and fire at odds with the city. He has a son who has been connected to a shooting. The mayor was part of gang violence last summer. Is he trying to turn it into some type of gangland? Last thing I heard was he was lining his pockets with money from developers and was "on the take". You think the KC Star has the balls to investigate his crooked money making scams.

Joey said...

On the crooked money making scams, South Kansas City Observer posted this on Saturday. Certainly something to be looked into on the subject of Sly, Forte, and Miles.

This needs to be a movie. Crooks Mayor, crooked son, has some innocent bystanders killed because of the son's criminal activities. Shooting at plaza actually a assassination attempt cover up for mayor criminal ties.
Underpaid East patrol cop uncovers criminal conspiracy and finds the son is Mayors flunky under boss.
Right when the mayor thinks he got away with everything...
Cops swoops in and arrest the mayor in a city council meeting right when he is closing the deal for a billion dollar train that was going to make him rich at the taxpayers expense. A couple crooked council members are arrested too.
Starting of the movie can even say "Based on True Events".

Hey Chuck - Tony had this photos a half a day before Hearne got out of bed.

I don't think that he cares what that site said. It's just him and a few of his old friends.

Not really a big deal.

Why does anyone go to Westport anymore? There's a shooting down there at least once a month. Hardly worth the risk for overpriced drinks, fat women, tattoo'ed idiots, and average food. There are enough bar districts in this cowtown to not have to slum it in an area that's quickly turning into the ghetto.

P&L will be the new westport this summer as the Pub Thugs will have to find a new place to hang out.

Kyle James has done some stupid shit no doubts about that. But sounds here like he had a friend shot dead in front of him. Pretty sure I'd be a little crazy/in shock too right after it happened.
