TKC READER EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE COUNT DOUBLE CHECK!!!
Breaking news commentary from this morning deserves a second look if only because numbers and data related to Kansas City's Summer murder spree tell a story of their own.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS KICK-ASS TKC READER NUMBER CRUNCHING REGARDING THE CURRENT KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE SPREE THAT REMAINS AT A FIVE-YEAR HIGH FOR THIS DATE ON THE CALENDAR AFTER ANOTHER MORNING MURDER!!!
Here's the word . . .
"Actually this is murder #53. Medical examiner hasn't officially ruled the beating death of the one year old from May as a homicide. Also the man beaten and found two weeks ago at 24/Campbell will likely pass as the news said he's not expected to survive."
Double tap . . .
"Add police related homicides back in and we are at a 15 year high. The 'police chief of the people' reduced homicides by not counting all of them any more . . ."
To be fair, KCPD counting of homicides now conform with Unified Crime Reporting standards used by the FBI and the reality is that KCPD is in the midst of "reducing positions while maintaining service" according to the Chief.
It's also worth noting Kansas City "crime displacement" as we've seen local crooks target outlying areas and inner suburbs in a search for softer targets.
Like it or not and just as TKC predicted . . . THE KANSAS CITY BLOODY SUMMER 2016 CONTINUES while this town focuses on politics and the topic of taxpayer subsidized development.
