HOW DO WE STOP ANOTHER BLOODY SUMMER SEASON OF SLAUGHTER TARGETING KANSAS CITY KIDS?!?!



Last Summer there were more than a few horrific incidents of gun violence involving children that shocked Kansas City but failed to curb the level of violence that's starting to pick up again on local streets.

Since the weekend one child has been hit by gunfire and another killed this morning.

The past year has seen a tragic uptick in the number of youngsters who are victim of Kansas City gunfire and Summer violence seems to intensify the risk of one of this town's most shameful trends that has claimed do many innocent lives.



Accordingly and because our blog community doesn't just ask questions but proposes solutions and offers important data.

Here's essential insight from our blog community . . .

"Okay, I don't want to blame anyone but what was that kid doing driving around at 2 a.m. in the morning??? Sure we all know that preventing violence starts with good parenting but maybe we need to think about going to a year round school schedule for the KCPS in order to avoid so much Summer violence involving and targeting youth. Obviously the violence gets worse when the kids are out of school. We need more educational opportunities for our youth and not just the pizza parties thrown by the Mayor. At least we can add this to the conversation instead of just saying the same old empty words at every vigil."

And so far from our blog community we've heard not only frustration about Mayor's Sly constant attempt to attack gun rights after violent incidents but some worthwhile ideas to curb violence.

The highlights of solutions proposed by our blog community . . .

- End All Summer Break For KCPS To Thwart Warm Weather Youth Violence

- Lobbying Judges And Jeff City For Harsher Sentences Against Violent Offenders Who Hurt Or Kill Children

- Enforcing Existing Gun Laws And Increased Targeting Of Felons Carrying Weapons

Note that none of these efforts call for changes in Missouri gun laws and even the readers of this blog have been more outspoken than the silent and mostly pointless Kansas City Citizen Task Force Against Violence that has only repeated political talking points devised by the Mayor's Office.

You decide . . .

Mayor's nights didn't do it?

Didn't think so, in fact they've increased violence and sex assault -

The kid wasn't driving around. His parents were. Possibly they were driving home a little late from a family gathering. It was a holiday after all.

Somebody knows exactly what happened out there. Man - or woman - the hell up and tell the police what you know. Do the right thing for once in your life. A four year old is dead because several adults chose to be assholes.

KC definitely needs to get a handle on all these ghetto hoes turning out bastard kids until we get a handle on things

Most ridiculous piece of victim blaming. I live less than half a mile from this intersection and have the right to drive in my own neighborhood any time, day or night, with or without my children without fear of being caught in a rolling gun battle. My first thought was that they were probably coming from the closest 24 hour CVS right across the bridge, something I've had to do in the middle of the night, child in tow on more than one occasion.

Or, like the above person stated, they may have been coming back from a relative's home... who cares? Is there a curfew on what time we are allowed to travel with/without children now? Oh, because this is the percieved "hood" we aren't supposed to leave our homes after 10 pm because we must be up to no good. The most recent house to sell on my block sold for $276,000 so not so "hood" after all, eh? But even if it was the worst neighborhood in KC, people have the right to travel at will without fear of having their child killed.

People are so quick to blame parents of color, or poor... neither of which I know to be the fact here but people assume because of the neighborhood. If they weren't doing anything illegal, it doesn't matter why they were driving in the area.

Oh and by the way, less than half of the population that live in KCPS boundaries have children in the district. The rest are in charter and private schools. Your tipster person is biased and misinformed.

An innocent child has died. Have some decency.

HOW DO WE STOP ANOTHER BLOODY SUMMER SEASON OF SLAUGHTER TARGETING KANSAS CITY KIDS?!?!

"WE"????

Answer in 4 words = We won't stop it.

Most people know where KCMO crime, including homicides, is concentrated. All you have to do is look at the map provided by KCPD.

FACTS:
KANSAS CITY, MO
Population (2015 est.) = 472,800 Racial percentages = White 59; Black 29; Hispanic 10; Other 2
Leadership = Mayor Sylvester James, Black male, Democrat, attorney
2015 KCMO homicides = 109; 51 cleared by KCPD
Top 3 homicide motives = 50 unknown, 30 argument, 15 domestic violence
Top Victim Age Group = 44 in age 17 to 24
Top Suspect Age Group = 44 unknown; 38 in age 17 to 24
Top Means of Attack = 80 Firearm/Handgun; 7 Knife (Note: there were 0 Firearm/Shotgun; and 5 Firearm/Rifle)
Top Police Division For Homicides = 46 in East Patrol
Top Homicide Victim Race/Sex = 69 Black Male; 13 White Male
Top Homicide Suspect Race/Sex = 45 Unknown; 44 Black Male; 15 White Male

see crime statistics here: http://kcmo.gov/police/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2015/12/HOM001DailyHomicideAnalysis2015-12-31-08-00-33.pdf

The reader will please note the overwhelming statistical association between KCMO homicides, both victim and suspect, and the following demographic attributes:
Black males between the ages 17 to 24
The area bounded by the East Patrol Division

HOW DO WE STOP ANOTHER BLOODY SUMMER SEASON OF SLAUGHTER TARGETING KANSAS CITY KIDS?!?!

Whatever you do, PLEASE don't concentrate your efforts on Black males, 17-24, on the East-side.....because that would be racist profiling!!!! KCMO DOES NOTHING INSTEAD!!!

6:02 I see your point, but as well much of what the other commentators say is true also.
Sure you have rights, your kids also have rights to have responsible parents.
I guess we grew up in different times. In my times, kids were not being killed out on the street in the middle of the night.
The culture you are attempting to defend is the problem. You'll come back calling me an old fogey saying I don't know what I am talking about. Maybe I don't know.

But I do know this, while growing up, kids weren't dying in the streets from gunshots. Rolling gun battles were something you saw on late night TV in a story about Elliot Ness and Old Chicago, and not for real in your neighborhood. So no, I guess I don't know what I am talking about having grown up in an age where folks respected one another rather than trying to kill one another.

Superdave said...

Oh by the way, I grew up around guns everywhere. Most houses had a gun closet or cabinet and just maybe a gun rack on the wall holding guns. None had gun or trigger locks on them and none of us kids that I know of was ever caught taking one to school or outside to waste the kid across the street with. We knew an ass spanking from hell was coming if we so much as touched a gun with out adult presence and permission. So yes we had parents, rather they were still together or divorced who made us kids tow the line and taught us right from wrong.

We were driving innocently at 2am between two cars having a gun battle sounds like BS to me.

^^^^^^^That was also a time when you saw many a pickup truck with a gun rack in it full of guns just going down the road as the driver was minding his own business and wasn't looking for someone to kill. Just someone who went hunting a lot or lived in a rural area and needed one for varmint control. I can't say I never saw my granddad without a gun in his truck and he didn't have it because he needed it to make him feel like a man. To him it was just another tool he used in life.

Low IQ, genetics, volatile temperament, ect, are all reasons as to why blacks will never be able to function or be prosperous at the level of whites or Asians. And the more whites try to intervene to help blacks the more they hurt themselves.

African Americans specifically are the worst of the worst, particularly the males. Nobody likes them including Africans from Africa or the Caribbeans. 90% of them just need to be culled off. They do a great job killing each other off but for every black thug that is killed 20+ black thugs are probably born that day from ghetto black women who just keep having babies.

Blacks have never created anything of importance ever. When explorer in the 1600s and 1700s explored Africa the blacks were basically a stone age people. They hadn't discovered the wheel, they did not cultivate crops,they lived in the most simplest of structure, they never built any seafaring vessel, they've never built a bridge, they still practice voodoo and cannibalism to this day. The only civilization they have known is what white man has brought to them and when whites leave they are unable to maintain it. All countries run by blacks are third world countries, there are no white third world countries. All black run governments fail.

The average IQ for a black in America is around 80. The average IQ for a sub Saharan African black is 70 ( these are the ones Obama is focusing on bringing here). When a 80 IQ black breeds with a 95 IQ white you get an 85 mulatto. It has long been the desire of the left to bring up the IQ of the hopelessly retarded blacks by breeding with whites. Intelligence is an inherited trait just as ignorance is. Though the left still blames black dysfunction on poor schools in black neighborhoods, they know this is not the case. No amount of schooling can improve ones IQ. IQ doesn't measure knowledge, it measures ones ability to learn. As a species in general blacks have proven scientists right in this.

We have wasted too many resources trying to fix the inequality of the black man. Unfortunately we may have doomed western culture with all of the catering to multiculturalism.
But I believe that was the intention all along. Maybe if enough whites survive the apocalypse we can start over.

I'm leaving this country the first chance I get. This country is finished.

I will not refer to blacks, Muslims or criminals as "dogs", "beasts", "animals" or "creatures". It is unfair, insulting and inaccurate (Earth's non-human creatures have value - I love all of them). I prefer: filth, garbage, monsters, fiends, barbarians, brutes, thugs, etc. Words that accurately describe these subhumans without disparaging God's wondrous creatures, great and small.

And one more tiny rant, if I may. OF COURSE the only way for lazy blacks to pass time is by standing around doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING constructive. No cleaning, repairing, building, maintaining. No yard work, community improvement, children's activities, volunteer work. No cooking, painting, sculpting, reading, jogging, playing music. NOTHING.

If we don't do something about this problem soon. It's just going to get worse.

Black lives don't matter, to Black people.

It ain't whitey killin all these babies. It's brothers shootin at brothers and just like they spray jizz all over everybody, they shoot bullets. No control, no care of the consequences. Just spray and pray.

Maybe this is just the young black man's version of Planned Parenthood?

Racism aside, this is black on black crime, same type of crime that got these people sold to slavers and shipped over here. You haven't stopped it in 500 years.

The NRA dislikes felons with guns, even coon felons with guns. I'm sure that makes them white racists.

It doesn't matter if houses on your block sell for $1million, anyone with common sense knows that's an area that should be avoided, especially at 2:00am. And while I agree that there are unknown factors, why would the entire family be required for a late-night run to CVS?

We could solve this, and all others problems, if only we didn't have that toy train. If we just got rid of it, all your dreams would come true. Maybe you don't remember, but before the toy train stole all the sewer money, the east side was virtually crime free.

Here's a novel idea. Take one of the abandoned schools in the 'hood,strip out what's left of the electrical light switches and plumbing fixtures that hasn't already been stolen, put up 2 inch steel plates over where the windows once were,remove all doors to rooms, bulletproof the exit doors, create a bulletproof control center that can control room lights all at once or selectively,then every weekend take 10 of the lil' gangsta' wannabes that are awaiting a court appearance on a felony charge, take them to said school at 9:00 at night, put 10 Glock .40's and 10 15 round clips on a table in the middle of the gym, put them at 10 different starting points and let them go and kill each other off and go back at 6:00 the next morning and get the survivors if any and give whatever remains there are to their families.

9:11---and the survivors have to do it again the next night eventually they all die.
