At this point on the calendar Kansas City has recorded more murders for 2016 than at any other time in the past five years.
To wit . . .
THE LATEST KILLING THIS MORNING BRINGS US HALFWAY TOWARD THE CENTURY MARK AND THE SUMMER HASN'T REALLY STARTED YET!!! JULY 4TH WEEKEND COULD BRING AN EPIC SHOOTOUT THIS TOWN HASN'T SEEN IN YEARS!!!
Whilst the newsies are talking about firecrackers and controlling flames . . . Our blog community is focused on preparedness and keeping Kansas City safe.
Let's do the tragic math once again . . .
- This morning was Kansas City homicide #50 compared to 36 at this time last year . . . The increase is quickly approaching 40% according to MSM.
- The clearance rate for homicides solved stands @ 43% this year meaning that the odds favor local killers getting away with murder.
- The number of shootings, property crime and violent assaults have also spiked along with more KCMO murder.
Gunfire hitting the bus this morning and a holiday weekend simply gives rise to more concern about public safety in the face of so much local violence.
