TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDER: ONLY STREET PRIVATIZATION WILL SAVE WESTPORT FROM WEEKEND GUNFIGHTS!!!
Midtown Kansas City is still in shock from a recent gun battle in Westport where a local gunman fired into a crowd, police were forced to shoot him and pepper spray patrons in the immediate aftermath.
To wit . . .
IN AN URGENT MESSAGE TO TKC, ONE WESPORT INSIDER SEYZ THAT STREET PRIVATIZATION IS THE ONLY WAY TO PRESERVE THE PARTY DISTRICT!!!
Here's the word:
"This is the only plan on the table and now is the time to act so that we can stop taking these incredible risks with our customer's lives. We need to get council to pass our ordinance and allow us to protect the streets from this kind of thing ever happening again."
Again, this is more important than social media or comment ranting because we're talking CITY HALL POLICY that has worked to benefit developers but really hasn't done much in terms of securing local streets.
In fairness . . .
A few things that could happen as a result of taking the streets private:
- A dress code i.e. potential for racial profiling
- Crackdown on gun rights - Metal detectors and No CCW
- Even more security and police.
Still, a lot of people don't understand the magnitude of the crisis . . .
ONLY ON TKC . . . HERE'S EXCLUSIVE AND UNEDITED VIDEO OF THE WEEKEND WESTPORT GUNFIRE FROM A VERY BRAVE SOCIAL MEDIA DENIZEN!!!
The panic amid the early morning shooting is important to understand without MSM cutting the clip:
"I was down in the Westport Entertainment District in Kansas City, MO on July 15, 2017 when a gunman opened fire into a crowd and injured two individuals. Police then came by and shot the suspected gunman. I wasn't able to get much video footage because when I first heard the shots, I went diving in some bushes behind a car in the area."
Even more background . . .
More than anything, even flying bullets, Westport merchants and bar owners are TERRIFIED that Kansas City residents will propose cutting back their hours to a 1:30 in the AM closing which badly hurt their biz.
And so, the fate of Westport hangs in the balance as another weekend approaches as biz and political owners debate safety, commerce and more local gunfire.
