ALONZO WASHINGTON AGAINST FAILED CIVIC CULTURE OF CRIME FIGHTING!!!
In these last months of the year we've seen violence and crime increase in both KCMO and KCK . . .
To wit . . .
ALONZO WASHINGTON HAS PENNED A MUST READ POST ON THE TOPIC OF LOCAL CRIME THAT INCLUDES VITAL INFORMATION AND INSIGHT!!!
Here's an important quote that should win the approval of even the most conservative local resident as long as they're concerned with fighting crime in our metro area.
Check it . . .
"The culture of crime fighting is all wrong in the Kansas City area to be effective in the urban core. Many police officers, homicides detectives and Crime Stopper Tips Hotline operators are very rude and negative to African American tipsters and crime victims. This is a fact that the press never seems to highlight. Furthermore, there is a civic culture of doing things to impact crime over and over again that simply does not work. Marches, prayer vigils, barbeques and millions of dollars spent on things that don't work are examples of this culture. Events that took place today are clear examples of why someone in power needs to take a entire new approach to fighting urban crime in the city."
And while some haters may criticize Mr. Washington's style, his tireless work against crime is an IMPORTANT contribution to the metro area and he consistently advocates for cooperation with police and against violence.
