KCMO will have between 102 and 107 homicides again this year and none of the programs drooling to take credit for any reduction even has anything to do with the fact that there are fewer year-to-date in 2014 than 2013.
That was caused by a very cold and snowy February and the pace has picked up dramatically as the weather warmed up.
In fact, if you look at the number of SHOOTINGS that are occurring, would see that if just a small percentage of the non-lethal victims had dies, the murder count would be the same as last year. And it's safe to assume that people aren't shooting each other to wound and the lack of fatalities is caused by bad shots and small calibers.
By this time next year there'll be a brand new "program" that someone has found from out of town and more money will be pouring out the door at city hall, without, of course, discontinuing the current tens of millions funding the current nonprofits, none of which have had any effect on the murder rate.
The most basic step in trying to solve any problem is first you have to care enough to try. And no one at city hall or in leadership on the east side really care as long as folks benefiting from the status quo aren't challenged.
McHale with NoVa will just be the latest fall guy.
