SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY STREET 'VACATION' PRIVATIZATION SCHEME DIDN'T WORK AS GUNMAN OPENS FIRE IN WESTPORT!!!


Proponents of the Westport Street "vacation" touted public safety and scared locals with the prospect of gunfire targeting local crowds.

Meanwhile, the local urban planning crew objected to the street privatization effort and advocated against residents giving up their rights to navigate public streets.

Now . . .

EARLY MORNING GUNFIRE TARGETING CROWDS OF PARTY PEOPLE BETRAYS THE PROMISES OF WESTPORT BIZ LEADERS!!!

Take a look:

KMBC: 2 shot, 1 in custody in Westport incident

Deets:

That incident happened around 2:45 a.m. An officer working off-duty near Westport Road and Pennsylvania observed a man fire a pistol into a group of people.

Two people were shot. Their injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

The off-duty officer chased the suspect on foot, and the man was taken into custody.

To be fair, here's the statement from Westport which claims that gun screening isn't up and running yet and tacitly admits that all of their other overwhelming security measures have been ineffective:

"Westport wishes the two people injured last night a speedy recovery. We are saddened that gun violence continues throughout our nation as well as here at home. We remain eager to start screening for weapons in the core pedestrian areas to enhance existing safety and security measures once all of the city requirements are met. We are hopeful that the outstanding requirements can be met later this summer and screening for weapons can finally begin."

Better perspective . . .

KMBC: Overnight shooting in Westport comes months after city voted to privatize streets for safety

KCTV5: Kansas City police are investigating a double shooting that happened in Westport overnight.

Fox4KC: Off-duty officer makes arrest after two people shot in Westport

Meanwhile . . .

KSHB: Three people injured in two separate shootings Saturday in KCMO

And so, what we're seeing now is Summer violence ramping up while local schemes that promised to curb local violence remain unproven.

Developing . . .

  1. Of course it didn't work.

    It was never supposed to. Just a scheme from the Westport merchants to get more power and bully some of their political enemies.

  5. At least the officer gave chase and made an apprehension unlike the cowards of Broward County. One can bet Team Slie will be bull horning this incident Monday morning from the mayor's office as he turns his cheek to the KCMO crime problem.

  6. The city hall minions will be out in full force and on TKC during Monday work hours, leaving their hate comments, while trying to control/direct the narrative on Westport street privatization.

  9. Don't know if we can draw the conclusion that the new policy is ineffective because it didn't work 100 percent of the time. One would have to look at the violent crime stats between two to compare...and we'd need a large data set. We'd need to look at the details of this. Was it random, premeditated? Did the shooter know the victims? And although it's bad when anyone gets shot, no one was killed, which is much better result than most of the shootings I can remember in westport.

  10. Black-lives-matter! Black-lives-matter! Trans-lives-matter!

    Westport has been ruined. If it’s not the blacks going around killing people and robbing them with guns it’s the sissy white liberal socialists blaming trump for their pathetic lives.

  11. I drove by Westport many a moons ago and I counted 10 or 15 blacks and surmised I was in the wrong part of town and immediately returned to Possom Farts. I wish I could have told these young people to steer clear of that bad part of town. Maybe I'll get to on the next go-around. If y'all have youngins tell em old Ned said, better safe than dead.

  13. First of all, there are some disgusting human beings commenting on this thread. Second, Tony, you may want to ask a few questions of the city as to why weapon screenings have not begun in Westport. If you'd been to Westport on a weekend night, and I'm guessing you haven't, you'd have noticed no weapon screenings at the barricades. Westport has been prepared to begin those screenings from the onset of the summer barricades, however the city has been dragging their feet checking all of their "boxes" to see this thing to fruition.

  14. They haven't gone far enough. There needs to be a ban on black people in Westport period. The presence of a single black person increases the odds of a crime taking place exponentially. It isn't if a crime will happen, but when.

  17. Don't get me started. There are to many places to go in the Metro TO have a Bite to eat with Friends FOR your own safety Don't go to Westport at night or early in the A.M..And crime happens in the Daytime. There are Many mental people walking around with guns .They want to rob I have to agree with some of the readers comments. This political anger and the violence is going to get worse. There are the haves and the have nots,We can stop some of the violence ,By,voting THE political Pawns That are promoting hate Giving money to the far left radical.socialist. Look what happened to South America. When the socialist took over and Yes two hundred million want to come to the U.S.TO get away from communists. Trouble makers

  18. I agree with retro rocker. Westport is NOT safe. Even during daytime. I quit going to Westport years ago after a friend of mine was robbed at gunpoint. When she asked why he was doing it he said he needed to buy diapers for his kid. Yes, he was black. People are getting guns pulled on them for diaper money in Westport. That’s not factoring all the losers on drugs in that area. It also where the antifa freaks live and hang out.

  21. The Biz owners Asso says the screening devices aren't in use yet because they're waiting for city approval.

  22. Ahh the city’s approval.
    I guess if the Westport business folks wanted a billion dollar development TIF or a sales tax they’d of had it by now.

  23. So according to an actual news source, "The new measures, which are expected to include metal detectors, are not in place yet because the privatization hasn't been completed, said Kim Kimbrough, executive director of the Westport Regional Business League."

    Of course it didn't work Tony!

    IT'S NOT IN PLACE YET.

  26. ^^^^^^ I think TKC did a good job with this post. Westport has made big promises with no follow through. The Summer is half over and they still haven't enacted security measures. Westport is trying to pass the buck here and Bill Nigro has obviously LIED to all of us with his negligent statement. He needs to leave Westport. He is dragging down the entire community.

  36. Crank up country music and the darkeys will scatter like rats. Westport has done that in the past and so has the Plaza, then turn the 18th and Vine money pit into a rapper’s paradise complete with malt liquor and a tank full of mud sharks. It would be a win for everyone except the families of the mud sharks.

    1. Awwww. I sense some desperation @10:52. You've really worked yourself up.

      Are you lonely on a Sunday night? My guess is that your "no one really cares" comment says more about your lot in life. Take a good look at your phone. Do you see that guy in the movie Up looking back at you? That's very sad. I'm sorry there's no one left for you to bring down at this late stage in the game and that's why you are commenting on a 5th rate blog in the middle of the night. Good luck with that. But don't be so bitter, I enjoy the entertainment value that you're providing and I think it's a great edition to this little "community" of geezers!
