TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! MORE VIOLENCE HITS KANSAS CITY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA!!! CAFE TRIO DUDE CARJACKED AT KNIFE POINT!!!



Reports of Kansas City Country Club Plaza crime persist as the embattled entertainment district endures a wave of late Summer violence.

Remember that this is just across the street from the Winstead's where two theologians were beaten last week.

Fox4KC: Man is carjacked at knifepoint in parking lot of popular plaza restaurant

Deets:

Police say a man was in his car, in the parking lot behind CafĂ© Trio just east of Mill Creek Park. That’s when the man says the suspect jumped in, pulled out a knife and told him to get out.

“I just, I just think it's terrible that this happened here.”

The suspect drove off westbound into the plaza and hasn’t been seen since. As dozens exercise nearby and couples take in the view, they say they’re saddened that even in the places they feel safest they now have to keep an eye out for danger.

Sadly, no suspect description around this heavily trafficked area near a busy intersection and Mill Creek Park.

Anybody with info is asked to call Crimestoppers at (816) 474-TIPS.

I noticed earlier that facebook is trying desperately to say that this is "east" plaza but that's total b.s. Cafe Trio is right on the plaza and only about 100 steps from the friggin Cheesecake Factory.

I guess a lot of locals don't want to see how bad the plaza has become.

This should be a wake up call for ALL BARS on the Plaza. Time to pay up for extra security and not just leave the safety of their patrons up to chance. This is no longer the Plaza of the 1980s, the threats are far more real.

There has always been crime on the Plaza. Is it getting worse, probably but isn't that true for all of KC and the whole country?

^^^^No. Crime is down.

Teach KC said...

^^^^ That is not correct, we're seeing rising crime in the major population centers.

Time Magazine is a liberal source but even they confirm it:

Violent Crime Rising in US Cities Compared to 2015, Study Finds

Let's not kid ourselves about what is happening but we should also take heart and see that it's not just KCMO suffering the violent trend.

A quick check of crimereports.com from 7/17 to 8/16 (1 month) for an area covering roughly the river market to the Plaza, Broadway to Oak shows 90 assaults and 45 robberies, for 1 month!

Lets celebrate the great job our KCPD chief is doing with twitter.

If I was as bad as Forte has been at his job I would be fired. Crime is out of control and he tweets stupid inspirational quotes and he responds to homicides. Neither matters. Just what does his going to murders help? He's become a shell leader. He absolutely has no leadership skills.

It appears he's lost the support of his department, and he kicked the community in the balls with his community police reduction program. I called my city councilman. The only way it gets fixed is for all of us to do the same. Demand some accountability.

Anonymous said...

Forte is not going to stop tweeting. It's good for AT LEAST $540 a day when he tweets off duty. Which is pretty much every day, sometimes twice a day. He's making a killing off the killing.

Good luck with talking with your council member. If you actually sat down and talked with any of these folks, including the chair and members of the public safety committee, you'd find that they don't have a clue about what's going on in their own police department, much less about public safety issues in the city at large.
And it's impossible to provide oversight and hold people accountable when when you don't even know what questions to ask.
How's the latest ribbon-cutting coming?
What a joke.

This has got to stop. Sick of rampant crime regardless of where it is. Sick of our so-called leaders sticking their heads in the sand and not stepping forward and sending a message to the cowardly thugs who are out there preying on our citizens that this will no longer be tolerated. It is not acceptable to ever take matters into your own hands but I fear that's what going to happen. I hate what's become of our city and our communities.

Please call the TIPS hotline; what a crock! No description of the car, suspect, etc. Great reporting!

Forte's plan = Let those poor little yard apes do all the crime they need so long as not a single officer thumps their ass and lands in the KC Star. We will sacrifice the safety of as many citizens as it take so long as our PD PR machine remains positive and cohesive.

KCPD is worthless.
Not worth one dime of taxpayers money.

I would say boycott the Plaza, but I know many of you already are. I haven't been there since 2010. No flash mobs or crazy youths. It was just Meh. All chain restaurants and stores that are at my local strip mall.

How about fixed bayonets and German Shepherds? Those are proven crowed control methods. What is black and tan and looks good on a hoodie? A German Shepherd. Yeah, I know that is an old joke but a golden oldie.

The Plaza? Who cares??
how many of us live on the plaza?

Anonymous said...

Yes, we're all aware of the 2nd Amendment, however, an upward swing in crime tends to turn some people into vigilantes. Once that happens it's over.

Anonymous said...

Maybe we could use some vigilantes since we have no police.

Anonymous said...

11:39, Doubt there are vigilantes in the plaza area, but guarantee you there are some north of the river.....only when it comes to your area, then boom

They probably have cameras in that parking lot, and if they don't, they should.

Officially, the Country Club Plaza does NOT extend past the park behind Cafe Trio and certainly does NOT extend to the building Cafe Trio is in. http://www.zipmap.net/Missouri/Jackson_County/Z_Country_Club_Plaza.htm

That criminal obviously knew the best place to hide in the plaza is in plain sight.

Cafe trio will be paying higher property taxes for the streetcar expansion so the urban skolars can ride for free to Cafe Trio parking lot and get to work.

The 800 lb. gorilla in the room, and I mean nothing racist by the simian reference, is that 6% of the population commit 70% of the violent crime in America. Not only is this being discussed but war has been declared on the police, those who are to protect us from crime by the Obama Administration and is Department of Justice with help from the news and entertainment media. Black Lives Matter is subsidizing this violence and when you subsidize anything, you get more of it. Crime is not going to get better, it is only going to get worse until we have, to quote Eric Holder, an honest discussion about race and I would say to Mr. Holder, in the words of Col. Jessup, “you can’t handle the truth”. Neither can Mayor James or Chief Forte.

^^^Here’s five devastating facts, liberals can’t deny...

FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.

According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.

In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster. Thusly….

FACT 3. Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks committed half of homicides in the United States for nearly 30 years.

DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides.

In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent.

There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes? Given this rate, it’s no wonder that there aren’t more assistances where cops kill black criminals.

FACT 4. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.

There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.

FACT 5. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

that's why you have to help yourself too.

do you expect that the police will always magically appear

every time you need them ? if you aren't willing or able to take some of the responsibility of protecting your own ass , then you will be a victim.

its that simple..yes yes yes ,that's what they get payed for ,BUT- tell that to the mother fucker with the gun in your face ,huh? doesn't make any sense at all , i know.


if you are not willing to stand up for yourself and your family,no matter what it takes , instead of just waiting on some (super hero) cop ,to come save you and make everything all safe and good for you....

well,sir,i'm afraid you are what is commonly known as a PUSSY!
A big wet,hairy one,with fat beef curtains , hanging wide open..

protect you and yours!!!!!!!

Forte puts in for all the comp time he can. Minimum 6 hours a pop for anything he does off duty at $90/hour. Since no one knows his actual work hours (he's never around) you can bet whenever he makes a crime scene or tweets, he's off duty. Everyone on PD has a comp time cap except him. He has around 3000 hours amassed which is growing and he cashes out upon retirement. He also says he has not used any vacation days since he has been chief (doesn't have to, he's never around) and he has been allowed to carry them over by the BOPC. Another huge cash out.

KCPD is a scam. You walk around in a uniform and get paid.
Here's some of the scams.
When you want to take the after off (paid) you say you're going to pick up your uniform from the laundry then disappear.
Or you say your going to wash the patrol car then the disappear.
KCPD is a joke.
The crap you get away with there you'd be fired on the spot other places.

The problem with boycotting the Plaza or shying away is that this is exactly how blacks take over everything. They have done it to every halfway decent venue in Kansas City and across the nation. They get their toe in the door, then start the crime, petty theft, getting mouthy and trying to intimidate. Everyone else leaves and they own it. It is high time lazy ass Peckerwoods, Asians, Indians and others put their foot down and started taking out these slime bag sonzabitches. If they think they are up for a war then by God lets give the shit bags and education. If you are scratching your balls thinking PD is in this game you are fucking nuts.
