TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! DR. ERNEST EVANS CRUNCHES THE NUMBERS AMID DEADLY DILEMMA: KANSAS CITY CONFRONTS 30% HOMICIDE SPIKE 2017 AS NUMBER OF POLICE ON LOCAL STREETS PLUMMETS!!!
The homicide totals after a tragic and bloody weekend have been calculated and the results should cause concern for every resident of the Kansas City metro.
Accordingly . . .
KANSAS CITY NOW COUNTS 52 HOMICIDES IN A 30% MURDER SPIKE THIS YEAR OVER LAST AT THE START OF SUMMER!!!
There were 40 murders at this date on the calendar last year and now KCMO counts 52.
Better than that . . . Check this LOCAL CRIME EXPERT TESTIMONY FROM DR. ERNEST EVANS who crunches the numbers and concludes that the "Ferguson Effect" is still influencing life on local streets.
Here's the word . . .
Dr. Ernest Evans: "According to the 2013 KCPD Annual Report at that time there were 1427 officers on duty with the KCPD. And, 2013 was the last full year before the Ferguson tragedy of August 9, 2014. Today, there are 1294 cops on active duty with the KCPD. As a number of veteran cops have told me:
"No one want to be a cop anymore." With our homicide totals at 52 for 2017 compared to 40 at this point in 2016, the city is facing a major crime crisis.
"At the end of 2016 there were 1,313 officers on duty with the KCPD--the lowest number in a decade. As of March 31, 2017 that number is at 1,294. What we are witnessing, in KCMO and all over the country, is what I call the second aspect of the "Ferguson Effect"--cops leaving the job and police academies being unable to keep up with the loss of officers. Ending the DOJ initiated "War on the Police" will have some impact on lowering homicide and crime stats, but we are in for a long period of rebuilding the nation's police departments."
