CITIZENS TASK FORCE OFFERS FUTILE RECOMMENDATIONS TO REDUCE VIOLENT CRIME AMID KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!
There's nothing groundbreaking or promising in the latest bit of anti-crime paper work that took a group of local political players more than a year to devise.
Worse than that . . .
THE KANSAS CITY CITIZENS TASK FORCE AGAINST CRIME HAS ABSOLUTELY ZERO INFLUENCE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY TO PUT THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS INTO ACTION OR GARNER NEIGHBORHOOD SUPPORT!!!
Countless meetings, more than a few dropouts and a great deal of hand-wringing offered this final draft of a meaningless document today . . .
KCMO.GOV: Citizens Task Force on Violence final recommendations to the Mayor
Tragically, this the new plan that doesn't look very much different from the old plan.
Meanwhile, 2016 saw a homicide increase of more than 20% in KCMO and 2017 looks to follow the same path as the uptick in local violence and murder leads the nation in rising crime.
