TKC FACT CHECK: KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA DANGEROUSLY IGNORE WESTPORT DEMOGRAPHIC SHIFT AND VIOLENCE!!!



We wouldn't have even seen this one if not for a BRILLIANT TKC TIPSTER calling out the newspaper that was once a source for informing people about what was happening in Kansas City.

The quote:

"Who is the KC Star kidding?"

The article . . .

Kansas City’s Westport is bouncing back in a big way

Obviously, this biased and irresponsible report ignores the discussion and information disseminated by our blog community . . .

There is a demographic shift in Westport that isn't just about race but also represents a VERY REAL SHIFT FROM THE RECENT UPSCALE HIPSTER PRETENSION to a more low rent (ratchet) hard drinking and loitering vibe . . .



FOR WEEKS AND WEEKS TKC TIPSTERS AND SOCIAL MEDIA HAVE BEEN WARNING KANSAS CITY ABOUT THE WEEKEND HOT MESS AND WILD TIMES IN WESTPORT!!!

Our blog community was the FIRST to mythbust the nonsense about a so-called "Westport Renaissance" and now the newspaper is just straight up misleading people . . .

In fairness, WESTPORT IS STILL FUN for the most part and there's nothing wrong with an element of danger/excitement with local nightlife. It is a place for adults after all . . .

BUT THE REALITY IS THAT THE POSH AND PRICY NEW HANGOUTS REGRET THEIR WESTPORT INVESTMENT BECAUSE THE PARTY DISTRICT IS REALLY RATCHET NOWADAYS!!!

This is fact, documented on video, with police reports, recent shootings, fights and tons of social media testimony and not part of a dying advertising model . . .

Developing . . .

The star and all other main stream media in kc have ignored any racial issues that shed a negative light on minorities.

Only feral negros, white bottom of barrel trash, ex cons, whores,criminal, vagrants lookin for fun and weirdos go to Westport anymore.

Save your life...save your money...save your sanity...DO NOT go to Westport and same for the Plaza.

Westport is fine in the daytime. Just stay away at night--too many drunken frat rats.

Bars are for losers anyway. People discover this around age 25

I'm not sure what happens in Westport after say, 10:30 pm. However, I'm there most weekends, and the view that is reflected in the Star article is what I experience.

You should leave your basement and go see for yourself rather than just repeating without checking, what people tell you.

Whenever there are packs of niggers gathering or even in the area, avoid it like the plague...

As long as they are blocking off the streets of the main party district they might as well charge a cover to get in.

This has been going on for a long time though. In my younger days we were at whatever was in the location where America's Pub was and there was a shooting outside. They locked up the club.

A real third world adventure. I'm surprised international tourists are not planning an entire two week vacation staying at the "Marvelous Upscale Westport"

If the article helps inflate a small localized bubble so the house can be sold and we can get the fuck out of this disaster known as CKMO maybe it's worth the paper it's printed on.

Westport is great from dawn till midnight. 12am till 3am the losers show up. Once its cooler at those hours the "ratchets" will stay home.

Westport should start closing at 1am.

Wow, Tony you absolutely hate Westport. You write nasty stuff every chance you get. What did it ever do to you?

It's where people go to enjoy themselves and anything other than a life of toil, anger and despair cannot be tolerated.

Simple really.

I have a new idea....new idea, new idea....

Why don't the police make 2 lanes for the peds, one coming and one going down westport road? That is, make it one way or the other. You know, divide the foot traffic into going north or going south? By making 2 lanes of foot traffic that would make it easier to control.

They could also I.D. check anyone that is coming down there in the entry lane. That would be one way to crack down on underage drinking.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with dividing foot traffic into zones. That would make it much more safe for everyone.

I know this simple idea would require more plywood barricades but I think it would help with foot-traffic flow.

I don't understand why business down there doesn't get cameras. I also can't stand drunk people on foot running out in front of my car. I don't like that many drunk people all together.

They do directed foot traffic crowd controls like this at events all the time.

Truth is, you need these kind of pedestrian traffic measures so the handicapped can get through without running over someones foot.

It really is an ADA thing. By not working on crowd control they are denying handicapped people the right to go down and get drunk in public just like people who are handiable.

Okay, but really the truth is, an I.D. check would help at the entrance and the exit. You can't control the substances people do before they go down to westport, but you don't have to give people an opening to let minors act foolish and the ABC to start shutting stuff down.

Ah, KCMO, the gangsta fantasyland that still thinks they can make a silk purse from a sow’s ear if they just print enough stories in the Falling Star. And I loved the quote in the story “There is a need for something a little bit subdued, a little quieter, unique and approachable.” Oh, yeah, nothing sums up a Westport establishment like that right there. NOT.
