Business owners renew call for street privatization amid violence in Westport

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Tom Platt was at his Westport home Sunday night, as first responders rushed to a shooting at Californos. "I heard the sirens and ambulances going past, and I said 'Oh boy, we have another incident here in Westport,'" Platt said of the experience.

Westport will die because of black people. If privatization is the answer then do it. Anything to keep the black people out. If you think that is racist please tell me who the problem is. No part of the city West of Troost should be allowed to be destroyed just because black people must be placated and catered to at all times for some reason.

Let it die. The blacks and snowflakes have decimated the last shred of dignity and appeal the place had anyway.

Roasted you good said...

^^^ You sound silly. Probably haven't ever spent a dime there and wouldn't know a good time if it sat on your face. Stay home. Nobody wants to party with you. Not in Westport or your mobile home.

Let the blacks have it and because they don't have any money, Westport will quickly die.

Give it to the Vietnamese. Those guys know how to party and they kicked America's ass.

Pho sho!

Being as I'm nearing 40, I don't spend much time there anymore, but yes, I've spent my share of entertainment dollars there in my youth. And no, no mobile homes allowed in Fairway.

Whats funny is everyone knows the problem but the media and well paid politicians can't say it for fear of being called racist and losing their jobs. What a fucking joke this world has turned into.

Question- Why would the City Council not support the Privatization proposal? Is it unfair to the Black population? Eliminating guns in Westport and charging a cover charge has got to be a step in the right direction.

Is Westort the next Bannister Mall? At Bannister, the last step was to Install observation towers in the Parking lot. Maybe this is the Councils answer for Westport???
I have an idea. Lets do what is ever necessary to encourage the Gangsters to go the 18th and Vine District. What would it take? Maybe the Baptist Ministers and Key Council members can encourage this.
Instead of a cover charge for the Jazz district we should pay folks $5.00 at time of entry. Also let them carry their guns..

Give it more time, the Daughters of the Confederacy monument has only been boarded over for a week, once it is removed the killing and thuggery will end.

Street Privatization is NOT the answer. (Under the proposal, there would have been NO additional security at the time of Orr's death.) What might well help would be CLOSING bars at 1:30 instead of 3AM!

Ultimately, the problem comes down to GUNS, GUNS, GUNS! We live in a state where the GOP Legislature has literally run out of ways to kiss the rear of the NRA -- short of mandating that every citizen carry a firearm, including infants. Guess I should not give them any ideas.

5:08 you're wrong. Black people will just shoot other people at 1:30 instead of 3:30. The time bars close isn't the problem, black people are. NYC bars don't close do they have a problem? Bars in the French Quarter close for one hour and there isn't many shootings in the Quarter though there are some. L.A. closes at 4 AM but the bars don't have massive shootings. Miami is open all night. Why should patrons and business owners suffer because black people can't behave. Fix the fucking problem.

Westport is a SHIThole for SHITheads and SHITheels. Anyone who spends any time worrying about its future needs to find a real cause to support.

FACT :

In the MID 1980's , I helped Rebuild the Westport era entertainment Areas, back when that GUITAR Club/ Bar was there and had that Bar shaped like a Guitar inside.

Did a lotta street work improvements as well as major ground reshaping for parking lots, new building pads etc.

Back in the 1980's there was rarely a problem down there other than once in a while maybe a fight in the parking lot, which didn't amount to much.

it wasn't too badd in the 1990's either.

or the beginning of the 2000's

But the last 3 to 5 years have seen a surge in pathetic VIOLENCE, shootings, rapes, stabbings , car jackings, vehicle thefts etc.

Wasn't a problem back long ago,,,,,,,

Wanna know why ??????

because Westport didn't have the VILE Arrogant Angry Racist "Degenerate Hoodrat Gangsta'street Thugs" down there always makin trouble, like whats happening now, nor was it tolerated by any means, at the local CITY level either, back when REAL Judges would throw the book at em' , unlike now days , where the Judges & Prosecutors slap them on the hands so as NOT to hurt their feelings or get Butt Hurt !!
