DID KANSAS CITY SKIP SPRING AND GO DIRECTLY TO SUMMER SLAUGHTER?!?!



This weekend Kansas City has already endured gunfire from Midtown to North of the River. Two people have been murdered and it seems our homicide count is right back on record pace.

Moreover, the forecast looks hot and muggy from here on out.

Officially, Summer doesn't start until June 21st. The typically violent season hosts an annual uptick in murders, property crime and assaults.

However . . .

It seems like Winter just ended 5 minutes ago, temperatures are already miserably muggy and murders are already outpacing last year's historic count.

Therefore . . .

DID KANSAS CITY SKIP SPRINGTIME AND MOVE DIRECTLY TO THE SUMMER SEASON OF SLAUGHTER?!?!?

Again, the humidity and homicide totals seem to suggest as much.

You decide . . .

It's Kansas City, Springtime is an illusion here and something that they only get on the east coast.

Last year there was also more "diversity" in the homicide numbers. That's what we need to realize, it's not a problem that can be regulated to one particular area of the city. Violence has a way of spreading everywhere and that's what we're seeing right now.

Do NOT forget that it is an election year. When a candidate tells you about all of their big plans and achievements. You need to ask them what they have done to curb the local homicide rate.

^^^ That would be nice but most people just vote on personality or do what the media tells them too. Really researching the candidates is something that most people don't bother to undertake. THink about it, barely 20 percent of registered voters even bother to show up anymore.

^^^ Most elections it's under 10%

We can get to 180 this year if we pick up the pace this summer. That would be a respectable 20% increase over last year.

Baltimore already has 101. We need to step up our game if we are going to compete with Baltimore and Detroit.

You get about a week of spring and the summer is blistering.

7:20, do you have any practical, concrete suggestions how to curb the homicide rate? What would you like politicians to do that a politician legally could do?

I support @7:20 said...

It's not 7:20's job to come up with solutions for crime unless they hold public or are employed with the police department. The public is only encouraged to stay informed and help to hold public officials accountable.

They work for us. Not the other way around.

Personally I would like them not to run for office. That would save the taxpayers a lot of money the the the Federal Government could ship to Iran.
