TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY ANTI-CRIME ACTIVIST ALONZO WASHINGTON OPEN LETTER AND INVITATION TO PREZ OBAMA ADMINISTRATION OFFERS IMPORTANT PERSPECTIVE ON GUNS AND CRIME!!!
This morning Kansas City Anti-Crime Activist Alonzo Washington shares an important message with TKC Readers and the Leader Of The Free World.
To wit . . .
IN AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PREZ OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, ACTIVIST ALONZO WASHINGTON PROVIDES AN IMPORTANT PERSPECTIVE ON GUN VIOLENCE AND ASKS FOR HELP PREVENTING MORE LOCAL HOMICIDES!!!
Here's the money quote . . .
"More Americans are killed on the streets with hand guns than with AR-15 assault weapons during mass shootings. Inner-cities all over America have been destroyed by gun violence that has resulted in daily murders, drive by shootings, Black males being the number one victims of homicide and countless children killed by flying bullets on a regular basis."
But don't get it twisted. Mr. Washington is a gun owner, believer in gun rights and a member of the NRA.
More importantly, Mr. Washington points out the disparity and hypocrisy of the current gun debate championed by so-called "progressives" and Piers Morgan.
Read the letter for yourself in order to gain a a perspective on the reality of the gun debate that's being willfully overlooked by most mainstream media:
The White House
Attn: President Barack Obama & Vice President Joe Biden
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear President Obama and Vice President Biden,
I want to commend you both for winning a second term to be able to serve all Americans. I have 6 sons and 1 daughter. I voted for both of you during the first and second elections. Two of my sons were within voting age (18 and 20) during the last election and they both voted for you gentlemen.
Please allow me to formally introduce myself. I am a independent comic book creator and crime solving anti-crime activist. I operate a grassroots tips program that encourages the public to give tips about violent crimes and homicides in the community. I have been successful in solving a large amount of murders, locating fugitives from the law, peacefully surrendering criminal suspects and finding missing people. Two of the murder cases that my tips help resolve were that of Marines that were killed after they returned from Iraq. I gained national attention for solving the murder case of a toddler that was beheaded in the woods of Kansas City, Missouri. The victim was dubbed Precious Doe by the community and the press. My 4 year campaign to solve her homicide generated the tip that identified her as Erica Green and revealed her parents were her killers. I never accept a reward for the crimes that I help to solve. I also use my comic book publications to also address social issues such as; gang violence, school shootings, childhood obesity, diabetes awareness, missing children and many other causes.
I have been battling the plight of gun violence for over 3 decades and I am very happy that the Obama Administration is addressing this matter. Although, I feel like a large amount of Americans that are impacted by this social ill are not being represented in this current debate regarding gun violence and gun control.
I recognized that mass shootings are more sensational than the everyday murders that take place in America every day. Nonetheless, more Americans are killed on the streets with hand guns than with AR-15 assault weapons during mass shootings. Inner-cities all over America have been destroyed by gun violence that has resulted in daily murders, drive by shootings, Black males being the number one victims of homicide and countless children killed by flying bullets on a regular basis.
It appears that these countless murders have not captured you two gentlemens attention. If the murders, shootings and gun violence in places like Chicago, Philadelphia and New Orleans is mentioned it is only added as a footnote as it relates to mass shootings and crimes committed by the mentally ill. This is troubling when you add that the city of Chicago reached 500 homicides in 2012. 34 people are killed in America due to gun violence everyday. Most of these crimes are committed by perfectly sane people.
Americans need to be concerned with these aspects of gun violence as much as they are with the less frequent mass shootings that occur in movie theaters, malls and schools. Missouri is the number one state for African American homicides due to the high amount of Black murder victims and the small size of the state. Currently, there are 107 homicides in Kansas City, MO. In a very small city homicides exceed over 100 victims almost every year. I have been blessed to have the good fortune of having the privilege of being successful in gaining tips that has solved the murders of many Black and White murder victims. Although, many people believe one class of gun violence victims are more important than other gun violence victims. We all know that is false.
Therefore, I am inviting you two gentlemen to come to the state of Missouri to speak to this issue so all Americans can feel united and included in this debate. This gesture would help make all cultures and communities realize that it is important that all Americans should be concerned with becoming safer from gun crimes. Please consider coming to a inner-city community in KCMO where guns have taken the lives of many victims. Many years ago the cable network HBO did a documentary called 27th Prospect. The film highlighted the large amount of murders and illegal drugs in the community. If one of you were to speak to the public from this location with anti-crime activists and relatives of crime victims it would send a strong message to the entire country that gun violence in poor communities are just as tragic as gun violence in suburban communities. I hope one of you two men will be able to accommodate my invitation.
Moreover, I want the Obama Administration to consider giving all American gun owners a federal voucher to help them purchase a durable gun safe to secure their firearms in. Keep in mind that the latest mass shooting was committed by a young man who was able to acquire unsecured firearms that were legally purchased by his mother. Please consider my request. Please review the following information about my anti-crime advocacy.
