KCPD CHIEF CHAMPIONS 'KANSAS CITY NO VIOLENCE ALLIANCE' AND PLANS TO TURN THE TIDE AGAINST URBAN CORE CRIME!!!



Amid what is a turning into an exceptionally turbulent Summer in Kansas City and across the nation, one of Kansas City's top law men advocates calm and patience for this town's crime fighting efforts.

Here's the word . . .

KCPD Chief's Blog: KC NoVA is building foundation for change in urban core

The most important passage in this note isn't a description of the Kansas City No Violence Alliance . . . Two years ago the group was widely touted in the media for a historic drop in local murder numbers. Now that those figures are back to historic levels, what's important is this statement which endorses and doubles down on the strategy for better and worse.

Checkit . . .

KCPD CHIEF FORTÉ:  "We know we have correctly identified the people who are responsible for the majority of Kansas City’s violent crime. So what are we doing about it? Everyone first must understand it has taken decades and generations for today’s culture of violence in the urban-core to form. That is not going to change overnight or even in two years. With KC NoVA, we are building the foundation for change. The impact of NoVA might not be visible in the homicide numbers right now, but I am confident that the relationships and processes are finally in place to turn the tide of violence. At a recent meeting for the Byrne Project of KC NoVA – which focuses specifically on the Prospect Corridor – a resident stood up and said he’d seen more positive changes in the neighborhood in the last few months than he had in all the years he’d lived there . . ."

Read the whole thing.

You decide . . .

Too bad the Ferguson effect is in full swing. It's a shame the current presidential administration is anti police. It's even worse half the country believes in anti leo ideals.

Nothing will change until the minds of the people change.

And yet the homicide rate is spiking. Sounds like success to me.

That must mean he moved to a surrounding suburb.

First we need to make sure all the white folk are happy downtown, in the crossroads, and then we will take care of the black folk.

angry black females need to step up their game, and commit more violence, to be equals.

KCPD has been trying to "turn the tide" on crime now for about 15 years.

Whatever. Nobody has the stones to do what really needs to be done. This will be as successful as gun control.

Another effort for self-preservation by Forte. Look over here, it's working!! He is a master con-artist who no more idea how to stop the killing than the monkeys committing the crimes.

Hmmmm. Does this mean that broken windows is not the culprit of crime? He's flip flopping.

40 or 50 years is more likely.

All that was needed to fight crime was new tools, police facilities and more public safety tax money. That was 2010. Now that they have all those things, they still can't cut the mustard. Don't forget to renew the public safety sales tax. It's worked so well.
