TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! FEAR THE KANSAS CITY WALKING DEAD!!! INSIDERS WARN AGAINST RISING COUNT OF LOCAL OPIOID ADDICTS!!!



Zombies are real and there are a lot more of them on Kansas City streets.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY AUTHORITIES AND RESIDENTS CONFRONT WARNING OF MORE OPIOID ADDICTS ON LOCAL STREETS THIS SUMMER!!!

They're not quite homeless and not quite criminals but a little of both and possibly the reason why it's not a good idea to leave valuables or loose change out in the open.

Downtown is inundated with this rising contingent of Kansas City resident that benefits from increased foot traffic and busier midtown streets. This epidemic is part of the reason why panhandling is on the rise throughout Downtown & Midtown and might be contributing to the rise in property crime as well.

Even worse, those who suffer from opioid addiction are also victimized by rougher criminals and each other as the desperation often puts these folks at risk.

As always, our blog community seeks to inform and warn locals of yet another threat as this Kansas City cruel Summer continues.

this story relates back to earlier pleading with locals not to give panhandlers change. Most of them are using the money fro drugs and it's hurting them, not helping them.

Give them a food gift certificate to a fast food place if you really feel the need to help them out.

Everybody loves a free frosty!

I carry job applications with me. When someone approaches me for a handout I hand them an application every time if at all possible. LOL, get some strange looks sometimes from the ones with signs that say no job or lost job and have no food.

I never see the apps again.

Dave, you're a fucking asswipe. I hope you lose your job and your wife has to fuck guys for $10 a pop to support the two of you.

Also I love the gaping leaps in logic here:

Downtown is inundated with this rising contingent of Kansas City resident that benefits from increased foot traffic and busier midtown streets.

According to nobody.

This epidemic is part of the reason why panhandling is on the rise throughout Downtown & Midtown

Oh it is? Says who?

and might be contributing to the rise in property crime as well.

Weasel words! MIGHT.

Plus you're about two years behind on this "exclusive."

Lots of tough talk, very little compassion or understanding here.

Too bad. KCMO used to be known for it's benevolence and community support.

Good luck guys!

Seems like a lot of you haven't been to midtown in years. It ain't your old westport anymore. Tony is absolutely right about the junkies. And those of you who are talking so much good tough statements are actually the same people who run your car when you get asked for some change. Take a good game but no real life experience. Typical "journalists" probably writing most of your stuff from somewhere in Leawood.

westport isn't so bad but you gotta go early. after 10 it's all just a human carnival act.

Westport areas Suck , if you're interested in being robbed raped TRANNY GRABBING car jacking assault shooting beat down , shot , murdered go the shit out hole ¡! The opioid crisis is nothing significantly compared to the invasion of the illegal smelly homelessness wetback and the explosion of everyone smoking weed and snorting coke to contribute to the success of the cartels ¡!
