Starting The Kansas City Homicide Count 2014



Already this year the cold brutality of Kansas City streets is much cruel than any polar vortex.

To wit . . .

ONCE AGAIN WE ARE COUNTING KANSAS CITY HOMICIDES THAT HAVE NOT SUBSIDED AMID SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURES!!!

Already but unofficially we have counted 3 murders so far in KCMO this year. That's 2 more than Kansas City recorded at this time last year but basically consistent with our metro level of murder over the past half decade.

We'll continue to track this stat as progress in curbing this horrific local number has faded from the top priorities of most KCMO politicos as election season gets closer.

Developing . . .

How many of the 106 last year were left bound at the feet with a bag over their head?

Zachary Lisle supposedly made a statement without an attorney.

Nobody gives a shit about old man Thomas because he was gay.

This city must do better. This is the most important civic priority. Shame that we haven't brought more to the table so far.

Public sfety DOESN'T EVEN COME CLOSE to being a high priority for the city.
Just watch how the mayor and council spend their time and OUR money and you'll quickly see how far down the list curbing the violence and homicides is.
This year will see more excuses from the "programs" like NoVa and Aim4Peace, and probably some new idea from a university professor or another city and we'll start a whole new cycle of making believe that the city's serious about this.
But nothing's going to have any impact if the folks at the top don't care.

At 3 already, we're on pace to shatter last year's record!

Tony.....how about a little statistical break down this year...by race and age ? This is not posed as a racist suggestion...simply "informed date analysis"

What about these white kids in Clay County who dumped a dead man in a park restroom. Or did they torture him there?

New Year new homicide rate. We got plenty of candles, teddy bears and yellow ribbons. We also got bottle water and huggers to fit 25 oz. malt liquor cans.

Just in for Senior Citizens tee shirts that say: “I AM SO FUCKING OLD I REMEMBER WHEN SOUTHWEST HIGH WAS A REAL SCHOOL.

For those of you educated in the KCPS, this is satire and not spam.

Dear Mr. Tony: Thanks for posting this info!! Incidentally, January 2013 had the highest homicide total for the month of January since 1994 (the middle of the infamous "Crack Wars"), so if we are already ahead of the January 2013 homicide total it could be a bad year for cowtown. Take care!! Sincerely and Respectfully, Ernest Evans

All the bleeding hearts want to talk about a handful of homicides that were committed by white or Hispanic people. They want to ignore the huge majority that were carried out by niggers, mainly against other niggers. It'll be the same this year too. The fact remains that niggers are violent, stinking, lazy, worthless, deviant, dangerous animals. They should be avoided like the plague they are.

A premeditated murder against a gay neighbor and most recently at Smithville Lake is not a handful of murders. Do you know what a Hate Crime Task Force means? Do you feel big government breathing down your neck?
