TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! BLOG COMMUNITY INSIDER REVEALS SPATE OF KANSAS CITY MURDERS NEAR NEWLY BUILT EAST PATROL COMMUNITY FACILITY!!!
A quick note from our blog community inspired a bit of checking and a confirmation of a tragic fact and perspective about the Kansas City homicide count which stands near a 5-year-high for this date on the calendar.
To wit . . .
TKC BLOG COMMUNITY EXCLUSIVE: KANSAS CITY INSIDER CONFIRMS SPATE OF MURDERS NEAR NEWLY BUILT EAST PATROL!!!
Here's the word . . .
"This may be murder number 48 but it's number 11 as far as violent death incidents near or around the new East Patrol. TKC, that's the real story here."
Two perspectives on this . . .
To be fair, the rise in crime near the police station/community center is part of an overall upward violence trend in KCMO and throughout the nation. At least the police station is better positioned to confront the violent uptick.
On the other hand . . .
The crime spike near East Patrol once again reminds us that over budget and highly touted development doesn't immediately pay off and might not be the only factor in producing a desired result.
The stakes are high in this talk about crime but the consideration of reality vs. expectations for developments championed by City Hall applies throughout the metro.
You decide . . .
