TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FACT: WE SHOULDN'T FORGET WESTPORT VIOLENCE OVER THE WEEKEND TOO!!!



Violent teen flash mob violence on the Country Club Plaza has become a longstanding fact of life but now it seems that the Midtown Kansas City ruckus is gaining notice in another party district just as we predicated last year.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS GENTLY REMIND US THAT WESTPORT FACED A BIT OF A RUCKUS THIS WEEKEND AS WELL!!!

Supporting facts . . .

- The so-called Westport Renaissance is a myth and our blog has covered club shootings and stabbings there last Summer and pretty consistently over the years. Only marketing hype and bar talk among aging hipsters holds out hope for a Midtown bar revival.

- TKC EXCLUSIVE: On Saturday, the talk among Kansas City Insiders is that authorities and security forces were divided among violent teen flash mobs on the Plaza and more than a bit of bar crowd ruckus in Westport.

- TKC EXCLUSIVE: Social media requests urgently ask us to note shooting in Westport last night amid a spate of deadly weekend violence.

For these reasons and a few more, it's important to fact check myths about a Westport Renaissance and realize that the aging hipster party district faces the same challenges as most other spots within the urban core.

Where was kc's crime fighter at?

All the crime and violence, in ALL the locations, is a product of niggers. There is no other answer.

Westport and the Plaza are just TWO MORE locations in the KC Metro area that will never again be safe for sane, unarmed people of any color.

At this time, ANY area south of 10th street, north of 48th street, and between State Line and Blue Springs is basically unsafe to be in, day or night. KC natives know this. You should too.

New types of crime and violence will happen as soon as the silly street car line is up and working. Why should we not expect that? Just because it's new and shiny the criminals will respect that?

I never go there anymore. I avoid it at all costs.

I blame Glazer and Nigro. Self promotion is not the same as actually working.

It's getting pretty bad when people in the clubs there duck and hit the floor then get back up, brush themselves off, laugh then say, gimme anudder beer!

Just shut the freaking place down already. Build some coliseums outside town where people can go watch blood sports combat and bread and circus in between performances.

Westport is GREAT up until 11:00-midnight. After that (like everywhere) its all desperate drunk losers.
And of course loitering under-21 kids.

It's actually pretty safe but feel free to stay in the burbs. You Johnson County mother fuckers take up all the good brunch spots.

Went through there the other day. What a freak show. It's unkempt, dirty, yuck, who the hell in the right mind would want to hang out there these days.

I think some nice hanging baskets of flowers and nice street level urinals like they have in Paris would be good.

There was apparently a shooting at The Point last night just after midnight. Media isn't covering obviously. Semi Auto fire heard.

Anonymous said...

Yes someone unloaded their semi automatic at The Point. Cop cars came screaming. About 12:15 AM. I heard it.

Anonymous said...

So was anyone as in a person screaming at said shooting at the Point?

Anonymous said...

Outright panic. Could be the media doesn't want to blemish the wholesome image of the area. Or they are to busy looking for more exciting sweeps material.

They still doing the Hip Hop Sundays at The Point?

Yip a guy posted on The Points Facebook page. This place isnt safe there was a shooting outside tonight. I hope everyone is okay. 9 hours ago

I'd like to see Polar Bear as the block captain for Plaza and Westport! He would kick ass and take names, which is what needs to be happening anyway.

Well maybe Tony can dig up something on the Point it when he gets up.

You heard it here first said...

@10:08pm "Just because it's new and shiny the criminals will respect that?"

The Black liberals like Reed, Curls, Urban Summit, Urban League, Black Agenda Group, et al think that the "build it and they will respect it" theory works. What these type of folks NEVER address is the inherent self-degradation that has become a cultural phenomenon.

These groups want everybody else to accept their sons in hoodies and sagging pants while at the same time making excuses for why little Mont-Mont can read, write and glorifies gang violence ans association. All people to do not act in this manner but a good majority can be easily profiled; and often are. These groups have set the standards so low for themselves and others like them. It's a wonder why any of them continue to be taken seriously.

To respond to the question... No, the thugs will not respect anything new (like the unwed children they produce and leave helpless and hopeless) and they certainly do not respect tradition (like working hard and building up business). These groups and their kind are interested in two things:

1. Destruction; and
2. Dominance.

The end.

Eight shooting crimes that happened over the weekend, killing a man and a woman.

The Point last night makes it nine obviously.

Guess the media is blacking it out so "commerce" there at the club isn't injured?

1214, there are stats (which i know old white fucks like yourself arent too keen on anyways) indicating that the teen pregnancy rate has gone down every single year. there are also stats indicating that the value of earning for wage workers have gone down every year. the average worker in 1970 made as much in a day in terms of spending power as the average worker today makes in a week, especially at the 20/hr and less income range.
your society that you think rules is a fucking failure. this country is a shithole with no infrastructure. i dont blame young black kids on not having a future. i blame you and your ilk on being stupid as fuck and placing the blame downwards towards your social lessers, rather than upwards, to the politicians and their fat cat puppetmasters who have shit all over us for as long as ive been alive.

it's a shame to read that about the Point. I was there the day melinda opened the original when it was just the downstairs and when she opened O's and helped her get the original game room put in and there with Mike "The Hook". Too bad. it used to be such a great bar.

Fuck the POINT.....It could go up like JJ's and nobody would miss a beat.

Nothing but greaser fucking dipshits around the Point. Fuck that dump and the scum that frequent it.

As far as I can tell, it's ok if white people shoot each other, but if black people get a little loud for a minute it's national news about how scary they are!

12:53, Hipster losers like you are always looking to blame someone.

Your lazy fucking ass, with no skills, no ambition, and not many brain cells left have done nothing.

Hipsters produce nothing, invent nothing, do nothing other than wear stupid cocksucker hats, and carry large shopping bags with something stupid written on the sides and attempt to invent new words that their grandparents don't understand. PS. Your grans don't understand most shit because they have "all timers".

No, Hipster, it's you that's worthless and along with the niggers that destroy everything in their path, the good ol USA is doomed.

big shock, shooting at hip hop night. at the mayor's son's club hangout.

What is the James' kid's gang affiliation?

I used to go to Westport. Before the surge in crime, and the following hipster revolution/gentrification. Have you noticed how many hipsters are transients in KCMO? They are not even from here, and then come here and complain how things are either before getting stuck here or moving to another city to find a new flock of hipster friends. Never really growing up.


Westport used to be a place where it could be diverse and safe. When we went down to Kelly's back in the day it was just way better, and way different.

I was thinking about starting a new business in Westport to add some diverisity. Dirty South Mobile. Where you come in and get a cheap Obamaphone and re-up by buying "dirty" minutes. Not as trendy and hip as a record/vinyl store but would be fun! We will even take EBT!

I agree, 2:07. This millennial generation is a mess. I sometimes just stare in disbelief when I see the few that work attempting to master their entry-level jobs in retail, customer service, etc. Not that there's anything wrong with an entry-level job, mind you, but these kids all look dazed and confused with zero enthusiasm and the personality of a brick. I feel so sorry for their bosses. They're just another line in America's obituary.

Wonder what the RNC thinks about it.

Anonymous said...

The RNC thinks two killed out of 8 wounded is a low attrition rate per rounds fired. With the military power the KCPD has to offer, Kansas City's still in the running for the RNC!

I used to laugh at you fearmongers, now I just feel sad for you. There's a reason the whole country laughs at kansas and you fraidy cats are why.

Enjoy your paradise of 1980s failed delusional "utopia"....

You stinking, fucking niggers would fuck up a ball bearing. There is nothing that is not worse, with the addition of niggers. Nothing!

Johnson County is nice and our governments work a whole hell of a lot better for the people here too. Our roads are better, our schools are by far better, we don't have 9 shootings in one weekend to worry about.

Our sidewalks don't reek of sewer, and our water works are really good.

Sly's tweeting today about how we here in the "core" - the nabe are a cultural landscape more vibrant than ever with burgeoning local arts organizations etc.

He's totally clueless obviously. I'm even beginning to wonder if he made up the story about being a Marine.

Anonymous said...

Anything labeled "Renaissance" in Kansas City is a myth.

They said that about the Renaissance development in the Third District and drive through that neighborhood today and it looks absolutely terrible. The new ghetto.

The grunting from Sly the silverback is only an indication that he's taking a big shit - just like any other silverback.

@12:53 PM what do the abortion rates look like? Teen births may be down but I bet money that abortion rates are up.

Look mom. I got fired and I spend my day posting stupid shit on Tonys KC.

Welcome to Niggertown.

Eventually all of Kansas City circled by 435 will be a wasteland thanks to the urban cancer.

At least Detroit has a decent baseball team.

The water in Johnson county is not drinkable. Look at the water reports. Your water over there is chock full of lead, arsenic, pesticides, even "unknown pharmaceuticals"......really, this is good water? It also has an orange tint to it. The water reports are available for every paying customer sent to the home per year by mandate and also available per the water provider. So if you don't read your mail, it is available on that contracted scam job company called "water one" that you all use. See, you can't have city of such and such water department, you guys thought it would be smart and cheaper to contract the water services out. Yeah, what a brilliant idea. Not only is the quality and purity of the water down, but the amount of water wasted due to Johnson County aging pipes is scarey. It is easy to point out that KCMO has bad pipes, but they are quite a bit older than JO. All that fine urban planning building white flight for the future has done very little for actual liveability. They don't call it the golden ghetto for nothing. The water in the dotte is hard. That is very very hard water. It is cleaner than JO water but it tastes very dirty. KCMO water is good, but not as clean as dotte water.

Love the headline, "Violent teens." Just say what it is: violet black people. It is always violent black people. Stop sugar-coating it. Everywhere they are there is violence and destruction. And 7:36 Gardner,KS had the 2nd best tasting/rated water in America a couple of years back. And hardly anybody calls it the "Golden ghetto." Any parts of JOCO that are ghetto are inhabited by guess who? Minorities, that's who. Show me a shitty apartment complex and I'll show minorities, plain and simple, there is no arguing it. Take a look at 51st & Foster, 79th and Grant, or the corner of K7 and Old 56 in Olathe. Those places aren't filled by the Irish.

The more Todds and Katies from Olathe that stay the fuck out of Westport the better.

Keep up the FEARFEARFEAR "reporting" Tonys Johnson County!

You are doing your part to continue making Westport the single best, coolest neighborhood in America between Chicago and the West Coast..
