KANSAS CITY 2017 MURDER COUNT STANDS AT 20 SO FAR: WILL LOCAL HOMICIDE SPIKE PERSIST DESPITE PREZ TRUMP PLEDGE TO MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN???



Despite the transfer of power in the nation's capital, the rate of Kansas City killing continues to rise over last year's historic increase.

President Trump mentioned Chicago killing but Kansas City is also one of the areas responsible for the recent national increase in violent crime.



Still, the focus on support for police has elicited celebration and concern on both sides of the aisle . . .

STL Today: Trump refocusing on protecting police as some in minority communities worry about repercussions

The Hill: Trump: Budget will boost military and law enforcement spending, 'do more with less'

The Guardian: Police chiefs object to Trump's efforts to involve them in immigrant deportations

Again, none of this has impacted Kansas City recent rate of killing given that our 2017 murder count has once again pulled ahead of last year's tragic number as we confront nicer Springtime weather and more outdoor opportunities for violence.



There are always a great many theories and perspectives on this trend but tonight we want to put the question to our blog community . . .



WILL PREZ TRUMP PROMISES TO STAND UP FOR POLICE HELP CURB KANSAS CITY'S CONTINUED HOMICIDE SPIKE???

More info on the latest instances of local violence and death . . .

KSHB: Highway shooting kills father of five

KMBC: 1 person shot, another person stabbed near 73rd and Oak

Fox4: Friend wonders if man’s success in Kansas City, Kan., was motive to kill him

KSHB: Victim ID'd in homicide at 99th and Walnut

You decide . . .

Chicago is taking him to task on his words. He's the President now, he owns the problem. If the wants to talk about it, he's going to have to take some responsibility. Truman said it first, the buck stops with the President.

Support for police is a good start but that can't be the end game. It can't be just about words.

There are some really important needs that Chicago has and investing in human capital is where it starts. The challenges are a lot more critical than just speechifying, which is the same problem we're running into here in KC.

9:16. Wrong. The President sets the conditions, but the actual law enforcement is a local responsibility. Until the citizens hold deadbeat mayors like those in Chicago and Kansas City accountable, the thugs are going to continue controlling the streets.

9:29 = All Bullshit.

Zero leadership on KCPD means zero progress toward reducing crime. As long as the violence stays in "the community" as Forte likes to say, we don't give a shit.

The man has already accomplished more positive than Obama did in eight years. Could we maybe give him 90 days to get around to pissant KC?

Just to think...the idea of having Donald Trump as President makes Black violence surge. Who are the vics? Black people. Who are the perps? Black people. Black people are showing this new President that the most violence is committed by and against Black people. It's so sickening. This proves Black violence don't care who is in charge, they are still killing one another like its 1985.

I wonder if the rise in violent crime is linked to the reformation of hard-drug laws. If this was 1990 and you got caught with an ounce of crack rocks you got 20 years. Nowadays that would get you probation or a year and a day.

Well one thing is for sure.. you can not depend upon KCPD so yes Trump will have to come and fix it.

I think we're on schedule for murder to double by the end of Kansas city Mayor sly James second term.

Once again KC stays losing to cities such as Chicago which has 762 homicides for 2017. When will this city finally be like the big cities????

9:16=Moron

Kansas City crime= incompetent mayor who cuts police force and can't understand why crime spiked.

Blame Trump???? Now that's funny.

Not a fuckin chance.

As much as I like Trump's initiatives on the economy, health care, foreign policy (Except for the insanity of attacking the Russians.) and border security, he isn't as I understand it, able to mass hypnotize police forces all over the country.

There is no way, that Trump can overcome the "Ferguson Effect". Especially in Locally controlled Democrat cities. Everyone from the Mayor to the lazy fucks workin at the Water Department in conjunction with the legions of stay-at-home-and-subsist-on-tax-payer-handout wanna be "activists" (Read Byron Funkhouser) will be ready to assault, shoot and just as importantly, with the help of the city leaders, SUE cops and the police department for doing their jobs.

ANY physical effort to arrest recalcitrant and violent black criminals will result in the demonization of the cops by the media, the investigations of the police department by City Hall and the encouragement of increased violence against the police by BLM-type organizations aided and abetted by the community "leaders".

It's the Wild Wild West in the inner city abattoir and that is just the way it is.

140 this year.

Kansas City isn't going to get any help. We're on our own.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Trump's going to be too busy dealing with the calls for his impeachment to do much of anything , except talk. Our new attorney general lied, under oath, about his ties to Russian officials.

Supporting the police is nice, but how will that have any effect on crime?

For decades Democrats have been called Communists. How ironic.

Hey Chuck-don't forget the Violence in Chicago is a result of defacto Obama Brownshirts under direct orders from the Illuminati to conduct a false-flag operation whereby they are actively hunting and killing young African Americans so the left can institute nationwide gun control. Once the guns have been banned, squads of NATO soldiers led by Pelosi, Obama, Biden and Hillary will go house to house confiscating weapons and imposing marshal-law upon the land.

chuck said...

Yes, actually you dumb fucks, the violence in Chicago, is now, has been and will be in the future, part of the de facto, violent, Brown-Shirt-Fascists that Obama idealogues promote with endorsements of BLM and the obfuscation of the truth about Black Criminality.

The Obama administration, under the aegis of that cocksucker Black Panther Eric Holder brought inner cities their knees where they now live, in a real time reality that is a Hieronymus Bosch painting.

THAT you dumb Progressive fucks, is why there are dead blacks piling up in streets, exsanguinating into gutters while you flog your dolphin and use the women's restroom to get a quick peek at a little girl with her pants down.

^^^Don't forget to tell them what happens after Marshall-law has been declared; Hillary and John Podesta working from their hidden base deep within the bowls of Comet Ping Pong in Washington DC, will began abducting teenage girls all across the land. They will traffic their slaves all across the world including to Russia where the best-of-the best will be used to entertain and entrap visiting foreign dignitaries including our current President. The President will then be able to indulge his penchant for "golden" fantasies unabated for life.

Who is this "Marshall" person you refer to? And what's his/her/its law?

I knew it was the fucking Brownshirts!!

Damn progressives..they are responsible for all the crime. I remember a time before Obama, heck even before the Clinton's, when there was peace across the land. There were no rapes, no murders. Everyone got along. Sure we all had guns..but no one ever used them. Damn left with all of their crime programs ruined it for all of us. Let's make America Great Again!!!

Well, what do you know?

It appears that Blacks in South Africa, when they are not murdering White Farmers in Hate Crimes, don't want immigrant Africans from the North, Somalis etc. down in South Africa and will fight to prevent it.

They must be racist, right?

Chuck-I'm confused...you mean there weren't any inner cities, or inner city violence before Obama and Eric Holder?

KC gets themselves a nog mayor, a nog police chief, a nog Congressman and a nog county head and after years of climbing homicide rates and black crime out of control it is all Trump's fault? Anyone who would even waste time trying to believe this stupid libtard bullshit is fucking crazy.

@3:40. Nice try. The guy that was caught off mike, telling the Russians that he'd "have more flexibility after the election" was Obama in 2012.
