KANSAS CITY DESCENT INTO DEADLY CRIME CHAOS: HOW DID WE GET HERE???



The Kansas City murder rate is speeding to the century mark this year and our reputation as a high crime city is now backed up by statistical data.

This juxtaposition from national law enforcement and the FBI is one of the most important for 2016:

KCTV5: Kansas City, along with Chicago, Houston, Washington D.C., Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, were largely responsible for the national increase in crime.

Accordingly . . .

RESIDENTS DON'T LIKE TO THINK OF KANSAS CITY AS A HIGH CRIME METROPOLIS BUT THE DATA REVEALS THAT OUR RATE OF KILLING RANKS US AMONG THE NATION'S WORST PLACES!!!

We've known this for quite some time and now more locals are starting to catch on . . . But the story doesn't stop there and a real understanding of this issue is important if there is any hope of turning the tide. More than any other city on this list . . . Kansas City has the best chance to separate from the bad company of these killer cities.

But first . . .

HOW DID CRIME/HOMICIDE GET SO BAD IN KANSAS CITY???

We all have our theories but the one that stands out the most and starts this conversation is a word from the KCPD Chief who often equates rising crime with social unrest. That theory has its merits but we'd like to suggest a more hard line analysis . . .

THE ROOTS OF KANSAS CITY CRIME LIE IN POLITICAL CORRUPTION


Believe it or not, most criminals aren't completely stupid and there's little incentive for these folks to behave when our local leadership is comprised almost completely of greedy, conflicted and deceitful elected officials, consultants and political denizens.

But it goes beyond mere public perception . . .

Kansas City corruption has focused civic priorities mainly on money generating schemes for the politically connected while public safety funding and support for police is derided and attacked by these very same people.

In Kansas City the priority for most of our leaders is making their friends and supporters rich . . . Keeping this town safe isn't even a secondary concern.

Corporate patronage props up laughably unqualified politicos who would otherwise be thrown out of office if not for a constant barrage of public relations hype supported by this very same corporate welfare machine. All of that support for this town's favorite politicos has been purchased by directing taxpayer funds in the right direction. This technique is perfectly legal in most instances and when it's not, the judges and legal structure of this town is part of the same systemic FAIL . . .

Which leads us too . . .

The Broken Down Jackson County Legal System Begets Worsening Deadly Crime


Police regularly lock up criminals who walk out of a revolving door days later in Kansas City.

Want to know why there isn't a lot of community cooperation with police??? It's not because of rap music, video games or t-shirts, it's because criminals don't stay locked up for long in this town.

In some ways, KCMO brings this on itself as felony forgiveness, early release and criminal record expungement are the battle cries of so many social justice warriors who are being paid, reinforced and manipulated to support a twisted logic that actually endangers the communities for which they claim to advocate.

Finally . . .

City Hall Gun Control Crackdown Is A Symptom Of FAILED Fight Against Crime


They say that prayer is the last refuge of a scoundrel . . . Similarly, unconstitutional gun control efforts are the last ditch hallmark of politicos who are so bereft of ideas that they would maliciously sacrifice American freedom for the illusion of security and end up with neither.

Also, blaming guns takes the blame off criminals, prosecutors, judges and politicos who lobby for their release and instead casts doubt upon lawful gun owners for the very crime which threatens their existence.

What's worse is that so many minority politicos are complicit in disarming their communities and leaving people THEIR OWN PEOPLE defenseless.

When all else has failed: The most despicable Kansas City politicos blame guns for all of their problems.

Sadly, all of these factors have led Kansas City to our current ranking as one of the most violence places in the nation right now.

Unlike the political elite or the mainstream media . . . We encourage genuine comments and discussion of these ideas and hope that new theories and solutions will arise. Moreover, it's our hope that a few honest responses might enlighten our blog community as to how to turn this horrific situation around.

You decide . . .

Millions down the drain and millions more to come. That's what I think you're really hinting at here.

How much have we spent on COMBAT, KC NOVA and Aim4Peace. What is the result? Murders are higher than ever!

That's the real questions that we need to be asking. What's the plan now because what we're doing hasn't worked.

FACT

Thanks to the following, and there is NO Denying it or attempting to spin it with utter bullshit either !

Those Responsible for Kansas Citys Violent Crime Rise are as follows

KCMO Mayor Sly James (Democratic Liberal Libtard)

Jackson County Prosecutor : Jean Peters Baker ( Democratic Liberal Libtard)

All those Degenerate Pathetic "Soft on Crime" - "Criminal Coddling" Democratic Liberals who believed in all that utter bullshit, "Re'sentencing" guide lines by O'bama, and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, as well as former Attorney General Eric Holder, under O'bama.

As well as O'bamas National Security Advisor, Susan Rice

as well as NSA Admin. Jeh Johnson under O'bama

Every one of these People named aboved are "Personally" responsible for ALL the deaths of all the Kids murdered in Drive by shootings and those innocent lives taken in Drive by shootings, Armed Robberys, Home invasions, Car Jackings, and any other crimes where where these Criminals released early under this O'bama administration are 100% responsible !

These Pathetic Degenerate Democratic Communist Liberals actually thought that under their illusionary phony "re'sentencing" programs, everything was just going to be "UNICORNS & FAIRYS", and some grand goddamn "UTOPIA" in all these communities ,,,,,,

NOW the people are realizing just what this Degenerate O'bama and his administration were really up to, that this KCMO Mayor SLY JAMES and county Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, who both had their lips planted very firmly on O'bamas Ass cheeks,,, are up to !!!

Yet ALL of them will attempt to Deny and LIE their way out of it with more bullshit Rhetoric & Spin to their NAIVE, Clueless supporters & followers.

Those people named above don't truly give a Flyin Shit about violent crime in your community, its all a "DOG & PONY SHOW",,,

However they love to Grandstand for all the "PHOTO-OP'S" that the Pathetic Liberal News Media reporters will give them every chance they get = FACT !!

All these Degenerates really give a flying shit about is keeping their Cushy TAX Payer jobs with glorious Benefits and seeking higher Political Office at YOUR Expense and all the people who get MURDERED in Cold blood by the very CRIMINALS they constantly let out of Jail & Prison. FACT

Kansas City survives mostly because of its longtime status as a freight hub. We're a rail switching yard and truck stop with an art museum and an orchestra, mostly supported by people who live in a more prosperous nearby county in another state. Oakland on the prairie.

chuck said...

Blah, blah blah.....

Let's cut through the bullshit with a "razor", "Occam's Razor".

Democrats need the black vote. In order to excite the black electorate, Democrats and the Press, promote the narrative of all encompassing white racism and black victimization. The outrageously disproportionate criminality of blacks, which bring cops into contact with black criminals (Where STILL study after study proves that there is no penchant for white cops to shoot black offenders.), is ignored and the "Narrative" is gas on the fire of black on white hatred and black on white crime.

Then after some puke, gangbanger thug is shot while, during or after commission of a crime, he is lionized, glorified and exalted into the new Black Hero Hall Of Fame and his family is awarded millions while the city from whence he came burns and is looted by George Soros funded BLM scum. The cops are prosecuted and persecuted as the Department of Justice arrives in town, to search under any nook and cranny for any one who may have uttered the word "nigger" or even heard the word "nigger" in a rap song so that the emasculation of the entire police department and the destruction of any semblance of moral is debased to the point of non existence.

The net result is more Democrat/Fascist politicians in office and police departments everywhere withdrawing from enforcing the Rule Of Law.

"The Ferguson Effect". In this insane and counterproductive atmosphere, the social contract, the Rule Of Law and the fabric that holds a civilized society together is shredded as Politically Correct initiatives and Politically Correct Politicians increase their efforts to obfuscate, deny and encourage black on white hatred in anticipation of the next election.

Moral agency is denied to black law breakers by way of the need for the black block vote, coupled with the greed avarice, narcissism and metaphysical lack of ANY sense of ANY public responsibility.

The new African America Museum Of History in DC (Which no one will go to.) is all about blacks in music, sports and the rest is Civil Rights. If these dumbshits couldn't bounce a ball or ba jangles across a stage they would have to be painted like a fence every now and then. Unsurprisingly there is no "Science and Technology" exhibit in the empty museum.

Perhaps they can build as addition on to this albatross where statues of their heroes can be erected. The "Michael Brown" wing, where on continual loop, he is assaulting retail store clerks and his family receives large checks in return for his legacy.

I read that black mothers are sending their kids out to greet any police they see, with toy guns in the hopes that they will be killed and the family can cash in.

There is nothing, nothing worse than the prospect of Prospect on a street near you.

The apartheid of the white race continues. The modus operandi of the left is to prop up the "black community" to ensure votes while leaving behind the working class white voter. This plan has, as the cowardly liberal French would say, a certain je ne sais quoi type of quality to it. Obama and his merry band of crooks, including Kansas City's own Sly James, have used the Soros backed BLM as a front to punish whites for, what they view, as crimes against humanity. Humanity being any race other than white. This plan reminds me of the Latin saying "Auribus Teneo Lupum". No matter. The blacks are too busy with their "rap music" and their "safe spaces" all the while looking for "reparations for slavery and 200 years of institutional racism" to realize that this plan will ultimately fail. Of course if it did come to pass then the Ta-nehisi Coates's and Tavis Smiley's of the world (all heroes to the liberal white 4th estate) would no longer have an audience to buy their "books" or watch them on "MSNBC". The plan to seize guns and steal from white tax payers to provide the "Imperium In Imperio" to the "black community" will result in Vox Nihili.

Funny, I thought building a new crime lab and East Patrol Station was going to solve all this crime by providing jobs, increasing police presence and building relationships with people.

In reading and seeing what i am seeing here. Maybe it's time to leave ol' KC for good. I grew up in mid town over by troost and moved out to south kc in the 70's. Saw that area go bad in the late 80's and now see the element trying to move north. This town needs a guiliani in charge to clean it up. That will never happen though because the low life's love living like pigs all the while getting their gov'mint money. That's why they elect the crooks they do. They could give one shit what they're doing in their city halls, all about the benies. I mean look at Detoilet, Washington D.C. Chicago and all the others. For God's sake D.C's mayor was on tape buying and smoking crack and they reelected him. Same with bow tie here. Arm yourselves people, this ATM and benies are going to run out. Nothing can sustain everyone on foodstamps and handouts forever. When that ends crime will really begin.

The crime problem in Kansas City (and elsewhere) is a result of the powers that be kissing ass on that component of the black community responsible for about 75% of metro crime. If you could find the flush handle for that, the crime rate would drop like a rock at the next statistical data point.

Since that's not happening, the sensible alternative is for decent people to avoid KC/STL and now Columbia at all costs; and to refuse to do any business that benefits the financial infrastructure that feeds these monsters.

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.

University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

It's time for the people in positions of influence and decision making to think outside the box to address the crime in KC.

Look at the community where the violence is happening and address the people who condone this criminal behavior and have them participate in stopping this destructive activity in their environment. They are the "only" ones who know who is committing these crimes against their neighbors, family and friends. Until they demand accountability, no amount of money, committees, forums, taxpayer funded groups will touch the problem.

Wake up KC and open your eyes to the fact you have a serious problem with your elected officials and tax funded groups who say they are concerned with the rising crime rates and loss of lives in the city. Their actions are showing you their TRUTH.
