KANSAS CITY ENDURES ANOTHER CITY COUNCIL FAKE CRIME CRACKDOWN!!!
It seems that PR moves and publicity stunts rule the day during the era of Kansas City's Mayor Sly James.
Here's a bit of hype . . .
Kansas City's codes, ordinances getting tighter
Scott Wagner's pimping ordinance has absolutely NO TEETH according Kansas City Insiders.
And then there are a few stiffer fines for stolen property that might be a good idea but are minor improvements at best.
In the meantime . . .
KANSAS CITY'S HOMICIDE COUNT IS ONCE AGAIN AHEAD OF LAST YEAR'S PACE!!!
THERE HAVE BEEN INCREASED SHOOTINGS ON LOCAL STREETS NO MATTER WHAT REASSURING STAT POLITICOS WOULD LIKE TO CITE!!!
AND IT TURNS OUT THAT PARTY DISTRICT LEGISLATION DOESN'T STOP KANSAS CITY NIGHTLIFE HAUNTS FROM BEING RATHER SPOOKY!!!
So, while a few marketing experts on Kansas City's Council are doing their best to fake their local crime fighting skill . . . Their efforts are paltry and pathetic at best.
In fact, more than a few Missouri State Reps. in Kansas City's urban core have done a much better job in cooperating with communities in order to launch collaborative efforts aimed at curbing crime . . . Rep. John Rizzo and Rep. Brandon Ellington come to mind first and foremost.
Sadly, MAYOR SLY HAS PROVIDED VERY LITTLE LEADERSHIP IN THE EFFORT AGAINST KANSAS CITY VIOLENCE beyond feel good press conferences. The Mayor didn't even mention the homicide count in his last "State Of The City" speech and it's clear that Mayor's Sly's legislative agenda if more focused on costly development than building community coalitions against crime.
