SHOCK!!! WARMER WEATHER AND KANSAS CITY SEASON OF MURDER STARTS AGAIN!!!
Unlike Dead Tree Media attempting to help Mayor Sly and the City Council loot the KCPD pension fund by pushing local control . . . It's kinda pointless to talk murders when this town has been relatively peaceful during the EPIC cold spell.
However . . .
THE KANSAS CITY THAW-OUT AFTER WINTER ALREADY LOOKS EXCEPTIONALLY VIOLENT AND DEADLY!!!
Even tonight we notice a violence spike and now this town is up to double digits when it comes to murders:
Fox4KC: Discovery of a dead body in a car prompts homicide investigation
KMBC: Man shot dead in parking lot near 23rd Street, Interstate 435
KSHB: Homicide investigators are looking into the death of a man found slumped over in a vehicle on Tuesday afternoon.
Update . . . This is probably appropriate place to also note a stir regarding regional outcry over the discovery of a dead baby tonight: Infant’s body found at recreation area owned by University of Central Missouri
Just a few things . . .
- Terminology Change: Suspected murders are now "suspicious deaths" and gunshot details where homicide is a likely option are now used sparingly.
- We hear that hot spot districts are being divided up once again in an effort to increase effectiveness.
- Political control of the police has never reduced the murder rate, just obscured stats . . . Ask St. Louis.
And so the local homicide count marches forward as this town celebrates Fat Tuesday with a typical return to violence and deadly celebration . . .
