TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! CHAOS ERUPTS IN MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY LAST NIGHT AMID QUADRUPLE ARMED ROBBERY SPREE!!!
Once again our blog community warning about violence in the troubled midtown corridor of Kansas City has been proven correct. Natch.
To wit . . .
OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY HAS BEEN REPORTING ON A RECENT SPATE OF KANSAS CITY PROPERTY DAMAGE, VIOLENCE AND ROBBERY THROUGHOUT MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY FROM MAIN ST. TO SOUTHMORELAND AND HYDE PARK FOR MONTHS AND NOW NEAR RIOT CONDITIONS BROKE OUT LAST NIGHT!!!
A map of the crime spree . . .
Like it or not, KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS tell us that this might be related to crime displacement from the Plaza that has now moved into surrounding neighborhoods but thankfully pushed out of the nearby entertainment district. Remember that not so long ago police were forced to roundup a violent group of youngsters in roughly the same vicinity.
Ergo . . .
MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY IS NOW UNDER SIEGE AS A WAVE OF VIOLENCE SEEMS TO HAVE SET IN FOR THE SUMMER AND CREATED ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS AND DIVERSE VIOLENT HOT SPOTS IN TOWN!!!
Like it or not, this crime spree is also within walking distance to the new proposed streetcar extension which is important inasmuch as City Hall leadership continues to focus on a development agenda rather than confronting brutal reality on Kansas City streets.
