NORTHEAST NEWS EDITORIAL: AIM4PEACE MISSING IN ACTION AFTER ANOTHER VIOLENT KANSAS CITY WEEKEND!!!



Throughout Kansas City there's frustration with a local City-Hall and taxpayer supported group that claims they prevent violence with phony stats and a great deal of political support.

To wit . . .

CHECK OUT NORTHEAST NEWS FACT CHECKING AIM4PEACE IN THE AFTERMATH OF RECENT KANSAS CITY VIOLENCE!!!

Here's the money line:

"Another violent weekend in the Cowtown and this ‘lil newsdog is wondering where Aim4Peace has been in the aftermath of all the violence. One shooting in the Northeast area over the weekend that resulted in a homicide as well as a homicide at Independence and Topping Avenues last week and this crafty canine wonders where the taxpayer funded, anti-violence goons from Aim4Peace are."

Read the piece in its entirety: Cue the Crickets

Again, as violence begins to increase in Kansas City . . . It's clear that sending taxpayer funds to the same old organizations is part of the status quo that keeps our local murder rate disproportionally high overall.

Why just pick on Aim4Peace? How about NoVa or all the utterly ineffective nonprofits that spend tens of millions through COMBAT year after year?
None of these "programs" are really held accountable for doing much of anything. Most of them are just jobs programs for selected folks and political supporters and all of them are nothing more than excuses for the council to use whenever someone asks what they're doing about violence and murders in the city.
Add them all together and around $30 million a year just disappears into thin air and the homicide rate doesn't change a bit.
Someone always benefits from the status quo, even when people are dying because of it.

Isn't it amazing and sad, how Kansas City has gone from being a lovely, city on the plains, to a shit hole? Full of nothing but niggers and their ilk, tearing up the town? There's never any news of about white people, doing good or anyone else. It's always about niggers shooting this or burning that. Yes, niggers have become KC's way of life.

But now we can have red light cameras again. That should bring in enough revenue to fund even more worthless programs.

MARC runs all the 911 systems in the metro. Scary that one "organization" has that much control over communications.

Besides... we no longer need AIM4PEACE, KC NOVA and the new NOVA Intelligence squad will solve ALL of our problems. Soon, there will be no more homicides on the eastside, and therefore, no need for AIM4PEACE!!!

When are we going to start seeing the results of this NOVA Program that is going to solve all of our problems?!? Why won't you declare a goal for this program, so the public and taxpayers will know the benchmark for success??? Is it because it is just another BS political move like AIM4PEACE that won't accomplish anything other than sucking up taxpayer dollars?!? That's the way it appears to be shaping up!

First every man on probation or parole who fathers a child would immediately go back to prison to serve out their full term. Second, any man who has children he does not support is ineligible for parole or probation.
Third, the Aim4peace budget would be converted to free condoms. If these men would rather spend time in prison than use a raincoat then we should definitely oblige.

There's either way too much violence or not nearly enough. Kinda depends on how you look at things.
