Kansas City Police Cope With Waldo White People Worried About Crime Reporting Etiquette After Public Shaming Over Racism
An uptick in Kansas City property crime isn't as important as perception and political correctness in one local enclave that's still struggling after allegations of racial profiling.
Recently, social media proved to be an excellent showcase for the racial fear of old white ladies constantly staring out of their windows having already dialed 9 and 1 . . . And then waiting for something horrible to happen. And that's not to say that their fear isn't justified given the uptick in crime this neighborhood has endured.

Fox4: Waldo neighbors meet with police to address recent spike in burglaries
Highlight of the conversation . . .
Someone posted on a Waldo neighborhood page a post about a suspicious looking man and the police were called. As it turned out the man was just waiting for his kid to get out of school.
"We do not want to see our neighbors incorrectly profile someone especially on social media where that person`s reputation can be tarnished in a way that`s just not something they can recover from..."
Reality . . .
THE VERY NICE WHITE PEOPLE OF WALDO NOT ONLY CONFRONT FEAR OF RISING CRIME BUT ALSO DISTRESS OVER ALLEGATIONS OF RACISM!!!
TKC won't pretend to help these folks in their hilarious predicament but it's fair to say that really racist people don't sit around worrying about being racist.
Like it or not, this is an important conversation that needs to happen throughout Kansas City and among more communities working together amid rising crime throughout the metro.
