TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY POLICE STATISTICS SUFFER AMID 2016 CRIME SURGE BLOODBATH!!!
The uptick in Kansas City homicide not only resonates throughout the metro but also calls into question important benchmarks by which police departments are judged.
KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS inform us that a basic understanding of these numbers is necessary to better inform recent law enforcement decisions . . .
According . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT SOME IMPORTANT KANSAS CITY POLICE STATS TAKING A HIT DURING BLOODY 2016!!!
Regarding recent controversy . . .
- Kansas City Police Response Times Are Suffering
An AWESOME KC INSIDER informs us: "The CIOs were suspended because of response times skyrocketing. They need every car on the street. On the East Side, some are reporting response times at close to 2 hours." And so a look at the CIO move as a staffing issue sheds a great deal of light on the debate.
- Odds Favor Local Killers Getting Away With Murder
To be fair UCR / NIBRS Clearance stands @ 65% but overall homicides cleared and solved number only 49% and then means it's better than 50/50 that a killer will commit a crime without consequence . . . Which is better odds than anybody can ask for at a casino.
- Non-Deadly Violent Crime, Assaults And Property Theft Have Also Spiked . . .
Midtown Kansas City has been the staging ground for a dramatic uptick in car thefts, property crime and frightening increase in vicious assaults that have left more than a few locals crippled. Crime has moved out of entertainment districts and into nearby neighborhoods and the violence has caught a great many people off guard. Our friends at the Northeast News remind us that "in the month of July alone, there were 87 assaults and robberies in Downtown."
Accordingly . . . Here's a bit of info on a group that has yet to make any impact on the growing disaster:
