TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY POLICE TOUT 'HISTORIC' 2014 HOMICIDE REDUCTION AMID BLOODY SUMMER 2016 MURDER SPIKE!!!



The topic of violence and polcing is soon to take center stage again in Kansas City and throughout the nation.

Nationally, another police shooting is already sparking protest and outrage . . .

BBC . . . Alton Sterling: Video 'shows US police shooting black man in Louisiana'

Locally (and thanks be unto God) . . . Our discourse is a bit more subdued and involves talking points regarding data . . . Still an important topic . . .

Check this bit of persuasion and a KCPD contention claiming that critics "can't argue with the lowest homicide rate since 1972" . . .

Major Joe McHale talks about historic violence reduction in Kansas City and the impact of their Group Violence Intervention, KC NoVA.

Checkit:



In fact, respectfully, our blog community can argue with this contention about the effectiveness of KC NoVa . . .

- After the election lead up year of strange climate patterns, 2015 was exceptionally violent and Kansas City earned national recognition for a homicide spike.

- In 2016 there is currently a 37% increase in homicides two years running.

- With up to 53 homicides unofficially compared to 37 at this time last year, right now there have been more homicides in Kansas City than at any time in the past five years for this calendar date.

Don't get it twisted, we realize KCPD confronts an EPIC struggle this year amid staff reductions thanks to City Hall budget tinkering.

And so, if we're going to crunch numbers than one statistic from two years ago clearly doe not provide the whole picture.

You decide . . .

Wonder how much money the Top Cop of the nation was slipped to come up with the idiot results of his investigation. Sounds like a lot of people need to be in jail over this cluster fuck of justice.

Damn shame that we can't do better in KC and fund the police and keep them on local streets. Too busy building hotels I guess.

Ask Mike Mansur why he personally scaled back the biggest, targeted crime sweep in history a couple of weeks back. Ask why the previous NOVA commander (6 months) was transferred out of the unit. Ask how many referrals to the social network have taken place AFTER NOVA call ins. (They can't provide it because it doesn't exist) NO statistical information exists whatsoever. NOVA is a joke, its ineffective and its a cover up for the prosecutors office to continue to do nothing to reduce/prevent black on black crime. Nothing.

The entire NOVA project has been doomed because Jean Peters Baker has no leadership skills what so ever. Her fucked up style of back room bashing has been on full display. Her own staff talks shit about her behind her back.

She never fulfilled her promise of getting the judges on board and she has run off allnofnher talented assistants. This entire NOVA ship is sinking under the weight of top heavy management. Jean is too stupid to lead.

If Lyin' Sly James cared enough about crime rather then his toy choo choo "It Has To Done!" extension we'd all be better off and safer in this city.

There are more officers dedicated to NOVA than most patrol divisions. No officers for the field.

Media blitz! Tell them how it is...and it is so. Unless of course you consider all the things happening around the latest propagandized warfare. Meanwhile, Uhal has seen an uptick in business with folks looking for greener padtures. KCNova hasn't done anything to retain residents in Kansas City. People know better. Theyll lice in a two bedroom apartment with ten prople just to escape the hood. They wont talk about that on the news, though. Now back to your regularly scheduled propaganda, urban gunfights and stray bullets.

Who needs Trump when we have a black president, mayor and police chief.
Can't get much worse than that.

In the Baton Rouge video you can't see what the guys right arm is doing. Maybe he was going for a gun, maybe he wasn't. All I know is I've never resisted arrest or cops directions and here I am alive and well today. And yes, I've had my run-ins with cops but it's amazing what some respect and civility will get you. There is a reason black people are targeted by cops, it's because they deserve it. God knows they've earned it.

Major McHale is a punk. He talked the Chief into creating NOVA and got promoted to Major for the concept . Then when NOVA didn't work out he asked to be transferred. So the Chief gave him the new East Patrol!!
