SHOCK!!! PREZ CANDIDATE TRUMP RIGHT ABOUT RISING CRIME AS KANSAS CITY ENDURES 7-YEAR-HIGH-HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!
After his shouting and angry GOP convention speech, many among the mainstream media argued that Donald Trump was exploiting fear for this own benefit and while it's unclear and unlikely that he'll be able to solve America's crime problem by himself . . . That doesn't mean he wasn't right about identifying the trend.
To wit, locally and a not-so-fun-fact buried in local news but highlighted nationally like every other big story that happens in this town . . .
CBS: Kansas City Deaths Raise Homicide Total to 7-Year High
Stat check . . .
"The deaths of the boys, ages 8 and 9, raised the city’s 2016 homicide total to 67, the highest number by this time of year in seven years. A 16-year-old girl who was shot at the home is expected to survive."
At last count the murder numbers was only 51 last year and 44 the year before that when authorities claimed that community outreach efforts had brought about historic results during an election year.
Now the problem is worse than ever and . . . Strangely enough and like it or not . . . Prez candidate Donald Trump is the only politico raising the alarm about rising crime in American cities.
