Time for action....talk has done absolutely nothing. This issue has been "talked to death"

More endless facilitaing, dialoguing, and identifying stakeholders and from some of the same groups who have been talking about violence for many years.
Aim4Peace has been funded to the tune of millions of dollars since Wayne Cauthen brought it to town and there has been NO impact whatever on the number of homicides. NONE.
This will be another discussion of blame and excuses and you can bet words like "responsibility, behavior, parenting, working hard, education, and respect" will never be heard.
Some of these folks just never seem to figure out that if you do the same thing with the same people the same wya time after time, the results are very likely to be the same.
But if you're the executive director of groups like Aim4Peace pulling down a cool $100 grand a year, you really don't want that party to ever end.
A complete waste of time.

What ANOTHER conference on crime?

This one should be successful, just like all of the others in the past.

Conference on crime....followed by a candlelight vigil with a single mother wailing "my baby, my baby" for her slain son. And all his cousins saying: "he was working to get his life turned around".

Rinse and repeat....same cycle. We all know the problem, but nobody has the stones to say it.

These comments shed new light on the Neo Nazi solution to race in Kansas City. Even though these Nazi's live out of the county and only come in for entertainment or cop jobs.

Aim4Peace really means aim for another piece of the money pie.
Total waste of good money.

Community Creating Opportunity is a scam.
