KANSAS CITY HOBO CAMP CRACKDOWN AMID LOCAL VAGRANT POPULATION BOOM!!!
Kansas City confronts a homeless problem that very few people want to talk about despite a population explosion among these local drifter denizens which has impacted neighborhoods, downtown visitors and non-profit groups.
Earlier this year we reported on one of the bigger hobo camp that blighted luxury living space near the River Market.
And now . . .
KSHB: Large homeless camp cleared out in Kansas City
"One of Kansas City's largest and longest running homeless camps is no more. City crews started bulldozing the encampments near 13th and Summit Saturday morning."
This week we noticed that hobos have been disbursed throughout Midtown and now push Southward . . .
Nevertheless . . .
KANSAS CITY IS ATTRACTING AN INCREASING NUMBER OF HOBOS CHALLENGING LOCAL RESOURCES!!!
Just a few examples . . .
The library is more like a mission or rail-car lounge, downtown parked car crime is of control thanks to the financial needs of more dangerous hobos, most popular intersections are staked out by hobo scamps . . . Meanwhile, the effort to feed and care for the homeless struggles to keep up with the numbers.
This didn't happen overnight and the solution is tragically cruel and counter-intuative . . . The more Kansas City cares for hobos, the more hobos we'll attract. Therefore, this kind of crackdown is essential and probably needs to happen more often . . . As cruel as it seems.
We'd like to know your thoughts, solutions and ideas to confront Kansas City homelessness because local political leadership has passed the buck on this problem to police and non-profits ... What we can't do is follow the lead of the selfish biz and political elite and act like the problem doesn't exist as it increasingly escalates.
What can we do to solve homeless crisis in Kansas City???
You decide . . .
