TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! DESPITE CHARGES AFTER WEEKEND GUNFIRE, INSIDERS SAY SHOCKING WESTPORT MASS SHOOTING REVEALS THIS EMBATTLED KANSAS CITY ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT IS DOOMED!!!
According to this town's Insiders, Historic Westport is the new 18th & Vine thanks to violent patrons who have destroyed hopes of Kansas City's most embattled entertainment district "turning the corner" with the help of new hipster venues.
To wit . . .
THE MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY ELITE ARE PRETTY MUCH GIVING UP ON WESTPORT AS A VIABLE NIGHTTIME ENTERTAINMENT VENUE THANKS TO A MASS SHOOTING OVER THE WEEKEND!!!
One TOP RANKING KICK-ASS POWER BROKER told us the bad news . . .
"It's over. Westport can't go on like this. There's just no way to sustain businesses if we're gonna have gun battles in the middle of the streets after one of our signature events.
It's not just this weekend, Westport has been facing the same problem for 20 years and has continued to lose business every season.
Already the liquor codes are killing us now this place is 'thug central' after 10pm. If that's the way things are going to be . . . I'm out and a lot of the people who own new businesses around here are saying the exact same thing. The loitering has killed this place and these aren't kids, these are adults who simply stand around to attract trouble. We don't have a way to legally respond without a ridiculous level of security. The easiest, most profitable opinion is just to leave."
Aftermath following the weekend mass shooting . . .
Fox4: Man charged with 7 counts of assault for alleged involvement in Westport shooting
And let's get our terminology right . . . While, thankfully, nobody was killed . . .
THIS WAS A KANSAS CITY MASS SHOOTING PERPETRATED BY A SUSPECT WITH BLESSEDLY HORRIBLE AIM!!!
Thank medical tech, good luck and whatever superstition to which locals ascribe for the lack of fatalities . . . But for the biz community, this mass shooting has killed hope that trendy new restaurants can save this place from longstanding issues of crowd control.
