FAMILIES OF LOCAL CRIME VICTIMS THREATEN PROTEST @ AG KOSTER'S KANSAS CITY URBAN CRIME SUMMIT!!!
By and large Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster's Urban Crime Summit in Kansas City has been poorly received..
The conference started off with an unpopular and borderline unconstitutional gun crackdown ideas and pretty much FAILED from that point forward.
Even worse . . .
THE FAMILIES OF CRIME VICTIMS ARE NOW THREATENING PROTEST OF THE KANSAS CITY URBAN CRIME SUMMIT BECAUSE THEY FEEL THEY WERE EXCLUDED FROM THE EVENT!!!
Some of the families are talking to Kansas City community activist Alonzo Washington about their frustration with the event.
Meanwhile, so many other community leaders are surprised at the overall lack of neighborhood participation in the event. And word of a MILLION DOLLAR GRANT AWARD FOR KC NOVA kinda just seems like the event is mostly focused on keeping bureaucracy alive rather than contributing to the fight against crime on local streets.
