TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! SO FAR: 88 HOMICIDES AND COUNTING IN 2013!!! KANSAS CITY CONTINUES TO QUESTION AIM4PEACE!!!
This blog has always contended that more than any other determining factor . . .
THE RATE OF HOMICIDE AND VIOLENCE DETERMINES THE SUCCESS OR FAILURE OF KANSAS CITY!!!
Accordingly . . .
WITH KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI HOMICIDES @ A 4-YEAR HIGH OF 88 SO FAR IN 2013 - LOCALS QUESTION THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CITY AND FEDERALLY FUNDED ANTI-VIOLENCE PROGRAM AIM4PEACE!!!
Check this series of insightful questions from a KICK-ASS TKC READER which call out the city's lack of transparency for this program that has so far been seemingly ineffective . . .
"Just looking at the city's website and looking at the Aim4Peace program. Wow! Nothing produced since Feb 2012 and the brochure promotes how well the program works by using statistics from 2006-2009. I have been on many violent scenes and in emergency rooms and have never seen anybody from Aim4Peace there. Maybe they show up later. Who runs this program? There are no people named in this website nor any qualifications of those running this program. The city budget says there are 35 to 45 conflict resolution counselors budgeted but does not give any statistics about their goals, accomplishments or qualifications."
Let's not forget that Aim4Peace recently won $1.2 million from the Feds . . .
And again, this year the Kansas City homicide count stands @ 88 compared with 82 at this time last year, 87 at this point in 2011 and 83 in 2010.
