KANSAS CITY WESTPORT MASS SHOOTING DEBATE : GUNFIRE VICTIMS DEMAND ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGES WHILE JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTORS PUSH FIRST DEGREE ASSAULT CASE!!!



Kansas City crime and punishment talk puts questions the actions of authorities in the aftermath of a tragic Midtown shooting.

Earlier this week Fox 4 reported that the suspected gunman has been charged with 7 counts of assault for alleged involvement in Westport shooting

Important fact . . .

NEARLY ALL OF THE VICTIMS OF THIS TRAGIC KANSAS CITY WESTPORT SHOOTING WANT THE SHOOTER CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER!!!

Local news reports that the prosecutors have answered . . . The charges carry the same penalty. Meanwhile, the victims remain unsatisfied with the effort of the Jackson County Prosecutor's office to aggressively pursue tougher charges following a horrific act of violence.

There is no attempted murder charge in Missouri. In Missouri you either were murdered or assaulted

714 is correct. 1st degree assault is attempted murder in Missouri. Also the investigation may still be ongoing so that always makes a difference. Initial reports did say there were "people" shooting at each other.

Charging the suspect with attempted murder would actually be a step down. Under Missouri law, the "attempt" to commit a crime is 1 degree less serious than the original crime. Since murder is a class A felony, attempted murder would be a class B, punishable by a maximum of 15 years.

I have no doubt the Feds would love to assume the prosecution. The Fed, the IRS, the DOJ, the entire alphabet soup of Fed agencies is crammed full of Liberals and growing like a fifth stage tumor.

If the Fed takes it over, the thug walks with a 100.00 fine and gets back pay on his EBT.

Not a federal crime. They would only take it if it was. Felon in possession of a firearm or if the crime crossed state lines

Jackson County Prosecutors Office and judges have major problems but these charges are absolutely correct. People want TV show charges.

They can do this stuff over at the new Super DUPER Colossal QuikTrip going in over on Westport Rd and Mercier after the bars shutdown. Every drunk and banger in the city can go there to fuel up and down more energy shots, then settle arguments!

Guy shot was a tourist, Forte it's past time to go hard on crime. Time to crack some heads in the hood and solve some crimes. Start with the Jeffrey McDonald murder.

The Community Backed Anti-Drug Tax (COMBAT) is supported by a County-wide sales tax, at the rate of 0.25% for a period of 7 years, used solely for the purpose of the arrest and prosecution, incarceration, treatment and prevention of drug related offenses and violent crimes; and the judicial processing of adult and juvenile violators of such offenses. Anti-Drug Sales Tax funds annually generate over $19 million (an average based on revenues over the last 10 years) and are used throughout the county to support these efforts.

The Jackson County Drug Commission is charged with the responsibility of establishing the priorities of COMBAT and making recommendations to the Jackson County Legislature for the funding of various initiatives that support this mission.
Funds Distribution
Drug and violent crime related initiatives are supported through an allocation formula approved by the legislature.
