Kansas City Outranks NYC In Murder!!!



This KOCH bros. website is not only showing its age but also a po'dunk understanding of American cities. Still, it's entertaining and that's why we link . . .

KC Seven Times More Lethal in 2016 than NYC

Not so fun fact . . .

"In 2016 New York City’s 8.5 million people committed 330 homicides. Kansas City’s 450,000 committed 127. The short of it is this: in Kansas City you were seven times more likely to be murdered than you were in New York City.

"New York City may have had nearly three times as many homicides as Kansas City, but it had more than twenty times as many police officers to handle those killings. In sum, the NYPD had seven times more officers per homicide than the KCPD."

The clandestine argument for more police is clever but the crime-ridden conception of NYC dates back to the 80s and doesn't realize that the Island of Manhattan has been a playground for the upwardly mobile since the cast of Friends (to cite another dated reference) and their followers gentrified everything 20 years ago . . . The same goes for Brooklyn. Real estate prices reflect as much.

Still, there's no denying that the uptick in local violence is scary and while the NYC center of the Universe has worked to effectively curb their crime problem . . . In KCMO there isn't even a new plan under discussion.

Having seven times the number of cops only helps curb the number of homicides if the local hood rats are shooting one another in front of the cops.

The black population of NYC is 5 percent less than KC. What the PC press will never tell you is the FACT that racial demographics play a huge roll in the homicide rate.

All the more reason to be in the streets protesting to have thrown out of office the gang at 12th and Oak. Forget Trump get off your butts and go after James, Forte and Baker.

The more shocking stat a couple days ago NYC had nine murders and KC had 11 murders. That is nuts. Remember, NYC has approximately 10 million people and KC proper has 500,000-600,000?

KCPD lacks the initiative to fight crime.
They can not get the job done.
Freeze wages and have layoffs.

Fire the Police Chief.
What is the Board of Police Commissioners doing?
