TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! GUNSHOTS AT LOOSE PARK LAST NIGHT SCARE DOZENS OF STONERS AND THEIR DANCING KANSAS CITY DRUM CIRCLE!!!



Sadly, the rising quotient of Kansas City violence interrupted a longstanding local stoner tradition at Loose Park last night and sent dozens of middle-class youngsters running for cover as if they were chasing a Pokémon in real life.

To wit . . .

GUNFIRE RANG OUT AT THE TRADITIONAL KANSAS CITY MONDAY NIGHT DRUM CIRCLE DANCE FEST AT LOOSE PARK LAST NIGHT . . . WHICH IS ODD BECAUSE THESE STONERS ARE USUALLY PRETTY CHILL!!!

On Monday nights . . . Midtown Kansas City denizens can smell the weed all the way to Waldo from this drum circle and we've noticed a bigger crowd every year and especially this year given the mobile gaming enthusiasts.

Here's a description of what happened but as with all things on Reddit it's totally fake:

"Hey guys I was just at Drum Tribe at Loose Park and there was a shootout about five feet from me. Everything was cool, people were spinning fire and hooping and playing drums and relaxing, and then a fight broke out right next to me over some guy messaging someone else's girl. A brawl broke out, a couple people fell onto our blanket that were fighting and then they started coming towards us. We grabbed as much of our stuff as we could and started getting away and then I heard the word "gun" and turned to start running and the first shot was a few feet away from me I saw it in the corner of my eye. Booked it out of the park and one of the people I was with called the cops and the cops said they were already on their way. There were 4 shots in all I'm pretty sure, two ambulances came after about 15 minutes so I'm sure someone got hurt. I don't see anything on the news about it yet so I thought I'd let everyone know. There are cops everywhere over there right now. Stay safe out there guys

We checked with a denizen of our blog community and the story is a bit different . . .

"It was a bunch of jerks who never come to the Drum Tribe . . . They thought it was a rave and they were there to start trouble. We have shut these people out before this time they were bound and determined to start trouble. They did."

And urgent text to us last night . . .

"Pokémon Go FIGHT at Loose Park. Gangsters showed up with guns and we were only packing Pikachu! Lulz."

Some confirmation and social media laments . . .

"Can't go nowhere no more."

Gunshots in Loose Park. Please Stay Safe Everyone.

"Thankful we are safe and hoping everyone else is as well . . . "

To be just a bit serious . . . We our journalistic Spidey sense knew that trouble couldn't be far off when the stoners brought in speakers and more dance music to this area behind the pond and amped up their dance party . . . And while we appreciate that youngsters getting baked in the park is just good fun . . . Something bad was bound to happen.

And so the granola pastimes and stoner hula-hoop celebration is that latest party to be crashed by gunfire amid this increasingly violent and Bloody Summer 2016.

I blame Pikachu.

Don't hate on the stoners so much. Those are the children of the middle-class. Do you think after facing gunfire in the park they're going to want to live anywhere in Kansas City, MO? Doubtful. This kind of thing has been what has sent college students to the suburbs after they graduate year after year. It's not just about the schools, it's about safety and if EVERY event is subject to gunfire in KC, you can see why our population is basically stagnant while the Northland and the suburbs continue to grow.

Last time I was there with my daughter some black lady was there with her kids on the playground as well. She lit up a joint in front of everyone. I wasn't surprised since nothing black people do surprises me.

I heard the drum circle was also spreading Ebola or Zika, and the people fleeing got stabbed in a parking lot on the Plaza by Louie Wright, who fled on the toy train. The FBI is already on it, but you guys should call them, because the toy trai stole a lot of the FBI agents that were working on the Mike Sanders sex cult and pouring over David Johnson's property tax records.

Wow Tony it's like you're unwilling to tell us the root cause of this Problem our city is gripped with.

Why are you afraid of the truth?

Why do others have to say it?

Shoots in the parks, water main breaks, gas leaks, no trash pickup in KCK (again). I axed myself this morning, isn't socialism grand.

What is this unspoken Problem you refer to?

Seems related, bro. So perceptive. Are you like, a science bro or something, maybe a doctor of brains? I hope so. The world can ill afford to waste your genius.

And once again, Tony denies the truth and deletes the truth.

^^^ Don't be a spammer and maybe you can share you're truth. Use your language effectively and don't just cut and paste stuff and try to take over the blog and maybe your opinion will be heard.

Or you can start your own blog and try your luck there, but spamming racist tripe is just spam and ruins the reader experience.

This is a free speech zone not public toilet. If you can't handle that, take your sh*t somewhere else.

But as one of the people who helped build this blog, we welcome you to stay and share what you have to say without spamming it all over the blog and trying focus attention on you (like right now) instead of the issues.

The shooters were white meth guys out to ruin everyone's fun. The vibe of the drum tribe has been screwed up. Too bad, it's a very fun time with a lot of great people.

I was packing up to leave the park when the shots went off I was sure it was fireworks until everyone started running.

Tony Cantu said...

I was there last night a couple feet away from the shooting and when the fight broke out I got down and was scared for my life had to get out of there as soon as I could cops showed up with assault rifles ready and loaded but it was already to late nobody was hurt from what I heard and seen we asked everyone if someone was hit but we got the okay from the people that were still there - please leave the guns at home ! ( positive vibes only)

Now children, you can't smoke marijuana because this is free country.

Stay home & get drunk with your father like a real american.

I was there and there was automatic weapons fire and drone strikes. One dude had a trident. The duck pond is still red with the blood of innocents.

Drum tribe used to be a small group / Collective of people that wanted to come and participate in drumming or dancing to the drums. It has slowly been taken over at Loose Park by the EDM crowd and a lot of young and Rowdy people that just want to get wasted. The actual drummers have stopped attending this event and plan to find a better smaller space to facilitate a safe place to learn to drum.

Shame, the drums were nice. KC needs to try and keep the positive traditions and not just play video games!

wow xalzi, you "built" this blog and you're actually proud of it? I think the only "reader experience" to be had here is projectile vomiting.

could you post your name and address? Or better still post your parents address. I want to eat out your mom and jack off your dad and taste the recipe that created the man who is actually proud of this festering piece of shit.
