TKC EXCLUSIVE MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY TRANSPORTATION GROUP CEO BILL GEORGE PENS OPEN LETTER DEMANDING SOLUTION TO MURDER CRISIS OR HE 'WON'T GIVE ANOTHER DIME' TO POLITICOS!!!
In the aftermath of the latest shocking Kansas City homicide, one of the most prominent local businessmen and leaders sends a historic note to City Hall elected officials demanding a solution.
To wit . . .
BILL GEORGE DECLARES THAT HE'S NOT GIVING KANSAS CITY POLITICOS ANOTHER DIME UNTIL THERE'S A PLAN TO REDUCE THE MURDER COUNT!!!
Disagree or not with the strategy, this is the FIRST demand from the KCMO business community on the escalating homicide count that has now spanned more than two year.
Take a look at the strong words of Bill George FIRST on TKC, the most important section is highlighted in red.
KC Murder Crisis
Dear Mayor James and City Councilmembers:
I am writing to each of you today to express my outrage and to plea for a solution to the murder crisis that is plaguing Kansas City.
Yesterday we witnessed another senseless murder. An innocent young man simply trying to earn a day's living. We end up with a heartbroken family, a soon to be born single parent child, and another horrific example of what is happening in our city.
As a lifelong Kansas Citian, it pains me that I'm celebrating my college daughter interning this summer in safe New York City rather than murder prone Kansas city.
That fact it's happening in a concentrated area of our community creates two scenarios. Those outside the area think they're not at risk. Those inside the area have become accustomed to this carnage or simply don't have the resources to leave. Either way, we have seemingly become accepting of a skyrocketing murder rate.
Statistics have shown saturation patrol are much more effective than DUI checkpoints in curbing impaired driving. Why aren't we doing massive saturation patrols in teh areas where homicides continually occur? This shouldn't be a question of available manpower. This is a crisis situation. If necessary, request the assistance of the Missouri National Guard to secure public buildings and entertainment locations in order to free up more KCPD officers for these saturation patrols.
As another election season approaches, many of you have reached out requesting support for your campaigns. I've decided I will not spend another dime for a candidate's campaign until a real and credible homicide reduction plan is implemented.
I stand ready to help, both with time and financial resources. I know many of my fellow Kansas Citian are prepared to do the same. As our elected officials I implore you to take decisive action now!
