COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA VIOLENT TEEN FLASH MOB REFRAIN: NEW KCPD SOCIAL WORKER SEYZ KANSAS CITY METRO (STILL) NEEDS MORE SAFE YOUTH ACTIVITIES?!?
Finally, today, check a a tried and true #TBT talking point in regard to local violence that we've all heard before and genuinely hope works out this time . . . (It won't)
KCTV5: Last week, Kansas City police reached out to more than 100 teenagers and preteens who had been in the district unsupervised after hours.
Money line . . .
No one was hurt last weekend, but this summer the Kansas City Police Department will be reaching out to families through its department social worker, Gina English.
"It's not a matter of the Plaza," English said. "It's that they went to the movies or they went with their friends. Metro wide, we could start finding more about what is available to have safe and welcoming environments to hang out."
English says the city is looking for more ways to offer safe places for kids to have fun after hours on the weekends.
