TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HEART OF AMERICA SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL WARNING: SOUTHMORELAND CRIME SPREE COULD ENDANGER UNSUSPECTING PATRONS!!!



This weekend the annual production of Kansas City Shakespeare's 12th Night is earning rave reviews but the promotion hasn't focused at all on a spate of recent violence in the area that surrounds the park hosting the performance that could pose a clear and present security danger to theatergoers.

To wit . . .

OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY WARNS KANSAS CITY SHAKESPEARE PATRONS THAT THE SOUTHMORELAND AREA HAS BEEN HOME TO A RECENT SPIKE IN ARRESTS, VIOLENCE AND ROBBERIES!!!

Last month police were forced to roundup a gang of violent teen flash mobbers who had been causing trouble around the neighborhood for weeks. The area behind QT seems to be impacted worst of all but our blog community has been FIRST in the metro to report that violent nighttime chaos has plagued all of the Midtown Corridor this Spring/Summer from Main St. down to Hyde Park. 

Accordingly . . .

KANSAS CITY MEDIA HAS FAILED TO WARN SHAKESPEARE FEST PATRONS ABOUT THE DANGEROUS SITUATION SURROUNDING SOUTHMORELAND PARK THAT POTENTIALLY PUTS PEOPLE AT RISK!!!

Parking is always a hassle at this event and people move further away from the park grounds in order to find a decent spot . . . The Nelson-Atkins paid lot is probably the best option but that fills up quickly and folks coming to the festival after dark have always had a hard time getting to the event.

So, we offer this post not to scare but simply to warn and make folks aware of an uncomfortable fact that neighborhood violence is once again threatening a beloved Kansas City tradition while local news is content to ignore the problem. Hopefully, this bit of waring will make locals more aware of their surroundings and increasing crime in Kansas City overall.

You decide . . .

Watch your back, get there early, don't park too far away and you should be fine.

The bigger problems here are that neighborhoods in KC aren't very well lit. Streetlights have always been a local concern but we've been too concerned about trying to attract tourists than building our neighborhoods.

Which is safer, Shakespeare or the gun show? The answer should tell you a lot about reality in KC.

Wait, I thought the mayor's nights program was supposed to fix all of this?

You should be vigilant no matter where you are! Let's have a fun and safe weekend. I see people walking and texting all the time on $800.00 phones -- totally oblivious to their surroundings. Is you set yourself up as prey, you will be preyed upon whether on the Plaza, Independence or Johnson County.

Face it, is no longer safe to be in Kansas City after dark.
Myself I'd feel much safer at a gun show.

Don't the KCPD Police Chief says he has a list of the criminals committing the majority of these crimes.... he's going to spring the trap any day now.... he's just toying with them.

To play the "Knock Out" game, or, not to play the "Knock Out" game.

That is as close as Obama/Brown/Shirt/Thugs will ever come to a culture that gave us the Bard.

Maybe the Plaza will be safer while the shitheel Predators are pre-occupied with easy pickins in the Mid Town Corridor Veldt.

you'll write any garbage, however outrageous, just to get eyeballs.

you've no shame whatever.

you and Clay Chastain should both go away, each for your own horrible reasons.

Surprised nobody mentioned this so far, just move the event to JoCo.

Better parking, better people.

Glad I could help.

Having a healthy and logical fear of extemporaneous African American violence is a good idea. A healthy respect for thug/scum who are not afraid to go to jail, have an average IQ of 65 and are repeatedly told by rappers that violence is cool while at the same time, their culture encourages same, is smart. There are millions of injured, raped, assaulted and, like me, murdered folks, who, wish they too had more respect for African American violence. As Law enforcement is further emasculated and the disproportionate criminality of African Americans becomes ever more salient, you, would do well to remember, that the "Protected Class" has standing that you don't. Hollywood, the 4th estate and politicians will jump through hoops of fire, to obfuscate that criminality while you bleed out in the street, comforted by your snark and ill advised forays into dangerous territory. It only takes once and your life, the life of your family member, the life of your friends, changed, ruined, destroyed forever in a moment.

But hell baddass, you go ahead and have fun. Get the whole family and head out for an evening of "Diversity".

I am still dead, in a Black on White Hate Crime, that no one remembers and the media hid from you all as fast as they could.

Why is everyone afraid to call a NIGGER a NIGGER? That's the problem in Southmore and Kansas City in general, NIGGERS.
