KANSAS CITY ANTI-CRIME GROUPS VISIT CITY HALL AMID TRENDSETTING BLOODY SUMMER 2016 HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!
Police count 64 murders so far this year in Kansas City, Missouri compared to 51 at this time last year. The clearance rate is less than 50% which means that odds favor murderers. The murder total at this time of year is higher than at any point in the past five years . . .
Given debate among police, a scourge of domestic terror attacks aimed at law enforcement and low voter turnout . . . These local groups shared their perspective @ 12th & Oak today:
Kansas City anti-violence group says stopping violence isn’t just the responsibility of law enforcement
Deets . . .
"The groups each do their part to meet the needs of their community and find ways to mediate conflict before it turns violent. One trained volunteer holds group meetings to help people with their mental health issues. Others step forward to provide clothes and shoes and job information, as well as stepping in when there is a conflict. Another group is knocking on doors of people who have committed violent crimes, to check on them and encourage them as they are out of prison."
A lot of haters denounce the efforts but the fact is that most of Kansas City is content to let the slaughter continue with very little notice or objection and at the very least these residents are engaged at hoping to find a solution.
You decide . . .
