TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! CHICAGO CAN CURB VIOLENCE AND MURDER, SO WHY CAN'T KANSAS CITY?!?!
Let's do just a bit of compare and contrast with a bigger, better and much more dangerous city given so much talk about making our town being "best" and "world-class" and what not . . .

TOP ECHELON KANSAS CITY INSIDERS QUESTION: WHY IS CHICAGO CURBING ITS VIOLENCE AND HOMICIDE WHILE KANSAS CITY NUMBERS REMAIN FIXED AND DISPROPORTIONALLY HIGH?!?!
Check a bit of evidence to back up our claim:
Chicago police: Crime down 16 percent, homicides down 18 percent
Meanwhile . . . For at least half a decade on record and beyond that really . . . Kansas City has been mired with the same murder count and most local politicos seem unwilling and unable to address the problem.
A TOP ECHELON Kansas City Insider asks . . . "What are they doing in Chicago that we have failed to accomplish? That's what we need to find out. Chicago has been one of the most violent places in the nation but they have managed to achieve success in reducing their homicide and violent crime numbers. But this year it already looks like Kansas City is on track to repeat our 100+ murder pattern."
For quite some time, this blog has maintained that it's the lack of political will that's the difference in fighting homicide in Kansas City Proper. Last year Chicago was forced to confront its problem with homicide and violence as the nation demanded answers from their leadership. Meanwhile, the only thing locals demand from Kansas City elected leaders is to keep shady economic development schemes moving forward.
That's my take on it . . . But now I'm putting the question to you d-bags . . . If Chicago can curb their murder count and rate of violent crime, why can't Kansas City?
