Kansas City Crime Fighter Laments Shooting On The Same Night Of Homicide Vigil



Recently, a local media reported on a vigil in the aftermath of a tragic drive-by shooting that claimed the life of a 4-year-old youngster.

Young homicide victim remembered in emotional vigil

While we respect the nearly indescribable grief among family and friends, it's also important to look at these gatherings an ensuing news coverage from a critical perspective that separates messaging and public policy debate from the obvious and tragic story of personal loss.

Accordingly . . .

KANSAS CITY CRIME FIGHTER ALONZO WASHINGTON SHARES HIS PERSPECTIVE VIA SOCIAL MEDIA ON THE REALITY OF MEMORIALS WITHOUT COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION IN THE SEARCH FOR JUSTICE!!!

Given that he has worked tirelessly to foster a better relationship with police and the community and he has helped suspects turn themselves in to police, Mr. Washington has more credibility than most when he makes these observations and his analysis should be considered . . .

Juxtaposition and a note about the efficacy of vigils...



A word about the rising tide of violence...

Reality about criminal response to vigils...

Probably the strongest criticism...


For more, take a look at Alonzo Washington's twitter feed and realize that the struggle against higher crime requires alternative insight and action beyond the same typical stories we see every Summer.

don't say that about vigils. I make a living selling candles, balloons, and teddy bears at these events. I'm insulted, my feelings are hurt, you've invaded my safe space. (Mu Grad)

The guy is a clown but I'll agree with him here. Black people in leadership positions have to do something better than what they're doing to fix black culture. Until they change the philosophy that being ignorant, being uneducated, having kids at 15, relying on cradle-to-grave welfare, and not being employed is cool, then nothing changes with black people. They are getting worse, not better. Any advances they made around the 70's has peaked and they've regressed, having become more violent since. They really are like radical islam in that they simply are not compatible with society. If you don't like that prove me wrong.

Absolutely agree about vigils. There needs to be a stronger response, and a call for people to come forward and turn in criminals.

In KCMO, with two murders every week of the year, it gets hard to schedule vigils when there ISN'T a homicide taking place.
Maybe Sly's Crime Task Force could hire someone to try to schedule events so there's no overlap.
They certainly aren't doing anything that in any way impacts the level of violence in parts of the city.
Of course, neither are the over-hyped NoVa, Aim4Peace, or COMBAT programs that spend millions every year, or the endless fake nonprofits and self-appointed "activists".
6:01 is right. No leadership....unless it pays.

Nothing will change. The violent "Culture" will still be excused. The blame will be second partied to "Society" and "Racism". The individuals will still be called "Justice Involved Youths" who are actually recidivist thugs with murderous intent, birthed by way of the Liberal "Narrative" which gives a free pass to those same thugs because of "Slavery" and "Racism". It is a vicious circle that pays big rewards for Liberals, who, keep Blacks constantly outraged at whites and "Society" for the murder and mayhem Blacks produce, which in turn, results in a solid black vote for Democrat politicians.

The ONLY thing that counts, is power and money. Reality be damned. Those blacks exsanguinating into the gutters in urban abattoirs all over America are the price WHITE AND BLACK DEMOCRAT politicians, who continue to make excuses, obfuscate the truth and produce ridiculous Red Herring arguments pay in blood to maintain power, money and sinecure in this corrupt, one party, Democrat, New Demographic Oligarchy.

Cops have no prayer of stopping the violence because neighborhoods are infused with violent, angry, uneducated, indolent, narcissistic, tools of the Democrat party, who have been brainwashed into thinking that cops are the enemy. The "Ferguson Effect" is the rule of the land in inner cities and in fact, has given thugs de facto permission to wreak havoc wherever they go, knowing, that they have a get out of jail free card if they cry "Racism". The MSM, the Entertainment Industry, in the halls of Academe, 'Community leaders" and the legion of self appointed black "Race Police" in the streets support anarchy and the destruction of the Rule of Law.

These thugs Alonzo trashes, are the new de facto enforcement arm of the Democrat Party.

Not only do black criminals laugh at vigils, they double up with laughter about NoVa, Aim4Peace, ad Hoc, Mothers in Charge, and the other countless activists and nonprofits who make believe they're actually doing something about violence and crime in Kansas City.
Use CompStat the way it was designed and used in New York, flood high-crime areas with cops, stop worrying about losers like Black Lives Matter, StopKC, and all the other groups who have no responsibilities for anything other than getting some television face time, conduct completely justified searches for weapons, and get the thugs off the street. Repeat as necessary.
Look out for the regular east side folks who want nothing more than to work, raise their families, and live with some basic level of safety and security.
Anybody at 12th and Oak with the guts to provide some adult supervision for this town?

We Must Secure The Existence Of Our PEOPLE And A Future For White Children, don't you agree Chuck?

I attended a vigil last year for a 19 year old who was murdered on his front porch over a girl. That vigil was disrupted by gunfire. This is a regular occurrence in our city but media, city hall, and even many kc residents are failing to give real solutions to these problems the priority they need.

Caucasians make up .08% of the world's population.

In an ever increasing number of cities (Detroit, East St. Louis, Memphis etc. etc. etc.) states and nations, the vitriol, hatred and murderous intent of the majorities in those same places, seek the extermination of whites.

Period.

Life in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Detroit, 27th and Bales or ANY place where Liberal, Progressive Agitprop is the "Narrative" that drives the Zeitgeist, whites are targets, literally and metaphorically.

The answer to your question, is YES.

It's not just America that hates you white boy, it is the world.

Coons and libtards are a great match. They are masters of the pipe dream and they have plenty of rhetoric. Unfortunately when they go to put something into action it is almost always a fucking mess. Engineers they ain't

.08% seems way too low. Do you mean 8%? Even that seems too little.

Fourteen Words is a reference to a well-known white supremacist and white nationalist slogan: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." It can be used to refer to a different 14-word slogan: "Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth."

- Wikipedia

Thanks for agreeing and admitting you're a white supremacist, Chuck.

Ol' Fourteen Words Chuck.

I think it's really cool of Chuck to man up and admit his white supremacist dogma. Step up, man! White Power! Make America Great Again! Go Trump! Eliminate the Negro Scourage!!!

.08 percent of the worlds population? Well hell, no wonder the libtards in want to hold white people back until the coons catch up (next millennium). They are making the jungle bunnies look bad.
