We already knew that mayor sLIE James International airport doesn’t care about crime and murders and the popo can’t do anything because of him and the rest of the city lawyers but seriously, WTF? Now they have the health dept trying to figure out how to stop the murders, jeezus sLIE, your the worst politician ever, or is that all the crime is paying off for you?

Involving the Health Department in the public safety issue is just a way to access some more public money. It has nothing to do with addressing the actual issues of violence and murder.
Keep in mind that half of the original $600,000 spent on worthless Aim4Peace came from the Health Foundation, which was as wowed by the presentation made by the Chicago Phd who came up with the idea as KCMO government was.
These programs and others who would like to get on the gravy train are always dialing for dollars and looking for new sources of cash.
And in KCMO you can bet that the elected and appointed officials, city employees, and all the others who actually have responsibility for public safety will do everything BUT address the real issue.
They know who the bad guys are.
Get them off the streets.

Kansas City this is what you get when you put a person that looks and acts like a clown in charge of running the City! Mayor Bullhorn can't run a city nor does he care about the crime here, he has actually promoted crime and caused racial division in the city. Just look at his son.

The same old shit from the black "leaders". We need more jobs, education, blah, blah, blah. Businesses all over KC have help wanted signs up in the windows. Most niggers would rather go there in the middle of the night and burglarize the place rather than go up in the middle of the day and apply for a job. There are more programs for trying to educate black youth than you can count but they'd rather be out like their role model parents stealing, killing, robbing, raping, you name it. And when they finally get too old for that they join grifter groups like aim fo peace and cry about no jobs, no education, blah, blah, blah.

Violence and loss of life is most definitely a health issue.

Could it be a lack of awareness that our actions have consequences, not only on us but all those in our surroundings communities?

Stopping the violence that leads to this tragic number of killings in the KC Metro area starts in the home.

Mothers and families are AWARE of their children's behavior. Especially if they own a gun and how they use their gun to commit crimes that leads to the murders.

The barbershops and beauty shops and nail salons all are aware of the "activities on the streets." Gangsters brag about their cowardly crimes against people & property. In fact the thugs bring stolen goods to these shops to sale and the owners and clients know they are buying stolen goods. Condoning criminal behavior and the destruction of the black community.

If people truly cared about the murders in KC, then they would make a courageous move and call out these parents, relatives, shop owners and take an united stand against criminal behavior.

The ministers and preachers know who commits crimes in the community and they need to speak out and demand a change.

I believe addressing the source (families, ministers, preachers, teachers, barbers, beauty operators, hair braiding person, nail techs) and demanding they STOP profiting off these crimes (against their own community) will bring an end to the violence and death in the inner city and surrounding areas.

The State is on crack if they think they have even scratched the surface of the shit going on with that Independence Events Center. They ticket racket is incredible. You can buy a $25.00 ticket for an event at this small venue and buy the time all the crooks get done with add on feed that ticket will almost triple. If you think I am bullshitting go try to buy tickets to an event at that place. To make it laughable they can't sell out a show, spam the hell out of people to buy tickets and can't seen to figure out why their events are not attracting sell out crowds. Now factor in that over half of the retail space in this enterprise zone sits empty and cheating on sales taxes is the least of the troubles waiting to bit the citizens in that neck of the woods. This entire mess was the pipe dream of the prior drunken ass city manager and the city commission that seems to think their positions are part of a Dog patch Boss Hog farting contest..
