TKC MUST READ!!! LOCAL CORPORATE AGENDA WON'T STOP SLAUGHTER IN KANSAS CITY KILLING FIELDS!!!



Right now it's important to share some of the most THOUGHTFUL, WELL-REASONED AND IMPORTANT writing sent to our blog community as of late.

Here's the word backed up by public information . . .

THE KANSAS CITY KILLING FIELDS

After reviewing the data that is available, we can say that since 1969, a KCMO annual homicide count below 100 victims is the exception to the rule. KCMO is a very violent place, and has been for years, continually ranking among the more violent municipalities in the nation. This is not a "world-class" distinction that civic cheerleaders harp upon.

Now, in regards to ongoing efforts to reinvigorate the KCMO Downtown district with heavily subsidized taxpayer assistance, isn't it a classic case of putting the cart before the horse? If KCMO was safe, with good basic infrastructure, schools, and an unoppressive tax structure, residents would be drawn to repopulate the downtown. Instead, the current regime dangles carrot incentives before developers to reward short-term planning while simultaneously increasing the stress upon the working-class residents who've persevered in the area for years.

The KC business community leaders and broad middle-class will not live in many parts of KCMO due to the crime and poor schools. You can subsidize as many luxury high-rise towers, entertainment districts, and ToyTrains as you want, they're not going to be conned into moving into KCMO. They'll come and partake in the amenities, during daylight hours, but then it's back in their cars and back to safe suburbia. The business community and local media will pay lip service to revitalizing KCMO, but just look at where they choose to live. They are beneficiaries of KCMO's dysfunction. Burns and McDonnell's leadership team lives in Lee's Summit and Kansas. The Dunn family of J.E. Dunn Construction even includes a long-time Mayor of Leawood. Most of KC's "society" families are actually Kansas residents. People generally hate to ascribe negative traits to themselves, but as long as you're not in the killing zone, isn't it easy to blame "those people" for remaining in the line of fire?

Mayor James says that KC businesses won't build on the East-side, period! Meanwhile, KCMO won't tear down abandoned dilapidated structures on the East-side. Sounds like a coordinated plan for dysfunctional stagnation, doesn't it?

"Things are the way they are......because that's the way they are. If enough people wanted it to be different, it would be."

There's no money in keeping Kansas City streets safe. Very few payouts that can be directed of contracts to reward.

Without incentive, elected officials won't do their job.

Exactly, what do they have to gain? Nothing. By the way what happened with the Federal assistance we got for being in the top 10 most violent cities in America ? Makes you wonder doesn't it

KCMO could put a heavy tax on all vacant condo's

And once again Tony tries to lamely deflect around the real issue, and then cowardly deletes any comment that points it out.

But other people certainly will. We're not going away and it doesn't change anything.

Cock-a-doodle-doo buddy!

"Those people" ARE to blame.

And yet you insist on calling them people when they're not.

Maybe we need to spend some money over there to help attract business and jobs.

Friends and family in home build/renovate contracting are very busy adding more entertainment features for more clients of varying scales and price points. Outdoor kitchens/bars, wood fire pizza/smoker ovens, media rooms, wine cellars, music/craft/hobby spaces, fitness rooms/steam baths/spa tubs/lap pools, posh kiddies' play areas in/out, pet grooming stalls, produce/herb gardens, energy efficiency upgrades, whole property tech/security updates, luxury/collectible car storage lifts, and backup power generators. More often now, comments about demanding careers and spread out families/friends makes home entertainment and daily comforts with conveniences highly desired. A thirty year law firm owner, in his late fifties with a wife and several grown kids, said he's hearing too often of "troubles" and prefers the good life with alot less stress at his home or his kids' and friends' homes.

2:07 is right on YouTube can have a RESORT IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD. IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE ON A COUPLE OF ACERS.YOU CAN HAVE AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN OUT DOOR LIVING AREA DURING THE NICE WEATHER MONTHS. AND IF YOU LIVE 40 PLUS MILES OUT OF TOWN YOU MAY ONLY VISIT K.C.ONCE IN MANY YEARS. I HAVE SPOKEN TO MANY PEOPLE IN MISSOURI AND KANSAS THAT HAVE NEVER VISITED THEY WATCH THE NEWS AND SEE ALL THE CRIME AND THEY SAY NO WAY. THEY WON'T EVEN VISIT THE K.C. SUBURBS.

KCPD sucks

As I have said for many years now the only issue with the black race is the black race itself. You can't fix what has no desire to be fixed. You can't change that which has no desire to ever change.

KCPD a losers paradise.

'Regreening" the East side would be good for everybody. But it is going to take more than federal funds, city funds, and more police presence. It is going to take the citizens living there to finally take some responsibility and to show absolutely no tolerance for thuggish behavior. Everybody knows that if somebody tries that stuff in Leawood or OP, the are gonna be in real trouble because citizens will not tolerate it.

How about city hall start by listing every nonprofit, organization, individual, project, grifter, and hanger-on they currently "fund" to provide anti-crime and "social services" and seriously review each and every line item for recent past activities, claims, and results, then require a three-year projection, month by month, of the organization's projected results, then monitor actual outcomes?
Then hold these operations, most of which are self-serving jokes, accountable for actual results.
Most of them could be de-funded immediately, saving the taxpayer millions of dollars which could be put into the KCPD budget or other efforts which might actually help reduce the violence, crime, and murders.
Having a third the number of murders as New York City year after year should be unacceptable to everyone.

You still suck.

KCPD officers lack the initiative to fight crime.

It starts at home with the parents.
Do they condone criminal behavior?
Do they allow illegal guns and activities in their home?
Do they profit from the illegal activities of their children and/or loved ones?


You're right, there needs to be zero tolerance regarding criminal behaviors in the homes in the urban communities!

Actually, many sectors of the economy are enriched by the carnage. Black folks like to make a pageant out of sending off their relations and the funeral home industry is there to help them. The medical folks have increased job security, patching up the wounded. Sadly, this is, likely, the only contribution these folks will ever make to the economy.

It is not the only contribution. After all, they made Harold Pener a rich man.

DRUGS and Minority GANG Culture is whats ruining KCMO

and a MAYOR and some KCMO City Council members who are "CATERING & Pandering" to those criminals as well !

Along with a Pathetic inept, incompetent Jackson County Prosecutor who seems to favor those types of criminals for her hopeful political gain and her pathetic liberal agenda,,,,,,,,

that being Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker as well as those pathetic liberal judges who are also involved and believe in SLAP on the Wrist punishments for those criminal Gangs and Druggies who commit crimes !

LOOK at Chicago & Detroit , same thing, same liberal agendas, High Crime, poverty, Excuses, rhetoric, lies, grandstanding, followed up with MORE TAXES to supposedly combat Crime that the liberals helped IMPORT into their community and neighborhoods !!

Seriously, Liberals couldn't manage a damn lemonade stand without screwing it up as we've all seen and witnessed !

When it fails,, its NOT their fault, its always somebody elses fault, never their own as usual,,,,,,,,,
