Kansas City Columnist Copes With Crime Tax

Credit where it's due . . . While we might not agree with this local columnist, his story is captivating and represents an accurate view of how many progressives view the cost of living in the urban core while enjoying amenities . . . If we didn't know that TIF, eco-devo and politically connected lawyers were responsible for most City Hall price-gouging, we might agree. Still, a perspective worthy of consideration . . . Mark Morris: 'Crime tax' is just a part of city life

It's amazing how many journalists make their living dwelling on the obvious.

The "crime tax" in KC is a lot higher because of an inept police force and lazy prosecutors.

What a pussy. Another liberal making it sound like crime is acceptable and making excuses for it. Step foot on my property and see what "rural" rules are like.

No wonder the star can't make a profit. They pay rubes like this to write stupid columns. That's almost Kraske level of obvious

He should have called the expectations of living somewhere relatively low in crime as a "white people problem" to appeal to the millennials who just love that kind of talk.

The race to the bottom continues.

I think I'll just read these comments and skip the article. They are much more informative.

Can't blame lawyers if city hall crawls in bed with them.

If the writer and his wife commit their fair share of crime, then his conclusion seems reasonable.

However, if they do NOT commit crime, then it raises the question as to why some residents show respect for others property and peace of mind, while others obviously do not. Please explore this question before shrugging your shoulders and accepting crime.
