TKC FACT CHECK: RISING KANSAS CITY CRIME REQUIRES HELP FROM FEDS!!!



Tonight we need to highlight recent news that has been downplayed by local media in lieu of sentimental coverage from of cheesy Kansas City holiday traditions and traditional local street handouts.

To wit . . .

FEDS STEP UP THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN FIGHTING KANSAS CITY CRIME AMID BLOODY 2017!!!

After the initial announcement of this effort during the Summer, the details of this increased KC crime fighting effort haven't been explained to metro new watchers until now.

Remember that Prez Trump has promised efforts to "make America safe again" and, like it or not, this increased focus on local resources seems to be part of that commitment.

And so we ask our blog community on Sunday night and in the midst of a historic year for KCMO murders . . .

WILL PREZ TRUMP ADMINISTRATION RESOURCES TARGETING KCMO CRIME HELP CURB DEADLY LOCAL VIOLENCE???

Here's the plan from higher up . . . You decide . . . 

U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Missouri: New Prosecutor Added to Combat Violent Crime

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tom Larson, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a new Assistant U.S. Attorney will be hired to combat violent crime in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

The new position was created as part of the Department of Justice initiative against violent crime. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently announced that 40 new Assistant U.S. Attorney positions have been created in 27 districts.

This additional staffing follows the designation of the Western District of Missouri as a Public Safety Partnership (PSP) Diagnostic Site to work with local law enforcement partners on public safety and violence reduction. Eight districts nationwide received this designation.

PSP was established in June 2017 and provides an innovative framework for the Department of Justice to enhance its support of state and local law enforcement officers and prosecutors in the investigation, prosecution, and deterrence of violent crime, especially crime related to gun violence, gangs, and drug trafficking. This approach serves as a platform to directly engage with cities to identify and prioritize resources that will help local communities address violent crime.

PSP enables cities to consult with and receive coordinated training and technical assistance and an array of resources from the Department of Justice to enhance local violence reduction strategies. PSP provides data-driven, evidence-based strategies tailored to the unique local needs of participating cities to address serious violent crime challenges tailored to their unique local needs.

PSP supports law enforcement, communities, and justice systems at the state and local level to prevent and reduce crime, combat violence and enhance public safety through the use of evidence-based practices. Among the components of a PSP Diagnostic Site are:

- Relationship building;
- Data collection and analysis;
- Training and technical assistance; and
- Community engagement in violence reduction strategies.

More prosecutors to help put criminals away is a good idea. At least a REAL step that we can judge on the basis of convictions. Makes a lot more sense than KC efforts that are just more public meetings for politicians.

Get the criminals off the streets, that is step 1. This should be obvious but in Kansas City there are always people who over think it.

Here's the better question for you Tk. Will Sessions & Trump get credit for this, strange to see that the newspaper didn't run this latest info. I guess a lot of KC Dems have problems with looking for answers outside of the box. Hope this does help to stop the killing.

Whatever works. Anything has to be more effective than just counting up bodies and then denying responsibility like City Hall.

if kc needs help, then we need help. What i can't stand is that all the trump supporters seem to take pleasure and gloat over kc violence. Better to pitch in and try to prevent the killing rather than taking joy from it.

Go after white collar crime while your at it. Especially the political variety.

I thought our Duck and Run Mayor was going to fix everything?

This had to be done because James, White and Greitens ate ineffectual grifters posing as leaders.

"Better to pitch in and prevent the killing...." Exactly, how?

You have to call in the federal government because KCPD can get the job done.

How much has KCPD spent on new stations and toys

KCPD is doing everything right, murder is up, overdoses are up, traffic accidents are up. Keep up the good work boys!

The Feds coming in is an embarrassment for this city, this is what we get when your mayor doesn’t give a fuck about anybody but himself

Agree with 7:15 pm when they ask HOW to prevent killing. Adding more administrators with good salaries, doing nothing. Oh, now I get it. It's a jobs program.

Gizmo said...

If KC can't handle the problem, maybe somebody else will try to lock up the thugs. Not a lot of faith in this but it's better than doing nothing and that's exactly what Sly has been doing.

Without cooperation from locals reporting what they know and drivers leaving their phones off there will be no improvement in either statistic of untimely deaths. The police are nearly powerless to change our behaviors.

sLIE is too stupid to ask for the Feds to help, somebody probably called behind sLIE’s back!!

When will everyone realize the simple truth. There is no fix. None. Never.
We will be clicking or pawing through newspaper 1 year, 5 years forever down the road and it will be the same thing. Blacks making problems.

Anyone who thinks another career Fed bureaucrat lawyer is the answer ought to have their nads donated to the METOO movement.

Okay, this must mean Killa City is finally getting real on this waging war on violent crime. Hopefully, this is a bonified effort, since that last component of this PSP Diagnostic Site lists: "Community engagement in violence reduction strategies". Yeah, in Cowtown parlance, that translates to: "Shoot first, ask questions later". Too much trouble is spreading beyond the hoods' hotspots. Nuff iz nuff, y'all!
