TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDERS FEAR 4TH QUARTER HOMICIDE COUNT SPIKE!!! 84 MURDERS SO FAR FOR 2013 TRIGGERS WARNING!!!
Quietly and without much Kansas City mainstream media notice, the quotient of deadly violence on local streets is quickly outpacing previous years.
To wit . . .
RIGHT NOW KANSAS CITY'S HOMICIDE COUNT IS HIGHER THAN IT HAS BEEN FOR THREE YEARS AT THIS POINT ON THE CALENDER!!!
Unofficially, we're counting 84 murders so far this year and checking with the last update of KCPD murder numbers . . .
(TKC NOTE: Remember to count the Sunday morning KCMO homicide.)
Don't take my word for it . . . This number sets us back 3 years in terms of "progress" curbing Kansas City's homicide number . . .
Even worse . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS FEAR A MURDER SPIKE IN THE 4TH QUARTER OF THIS YEAR WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THIS HORRIFIC NUMBER!!!
Some rather valiant efforts haven't seemed to help reduce the number so far . . .
Now gun control is under discussion in order to curb the KCMO homicide count . . .
In terms of public perception . . . Dead Tree Media has been noticeably quiet . . . But a KC Insider offers this:
"Our murder rater per capita might now be higher than Chicago's and certainly much more than much bigger cities . . .
When debated in favor of local control it was stunningly higher. We had at that time one murder for every 2,000 people and Chicago had one murder for every 3,000 people."
Tragically, Chicago is out of control but Kansas City isn't far behind as local politicos seem to believe that the only way to control Kansas City killing is to start taking away guns.
