SATURDAY SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY 2018 HOMICIDE #90: MAN SHOT DEAD AMID RAMPANT GUNFIRE THREATENING EMBATTLED 18TH & VINE JAZZ DISTRICT!!!



Kansas City taxpayers have financed the troubled East Side entertainment district to the tune of more than $100-MILLION since 1990. City Hall recently approved $7-MILLION MORE in the midst of financial controversy and the departure of the jazz museum prez.

Remember that earlier this month there were six victims shot in the district and viral social media snuff footage depicted a chaotic and terrifying late night scene.

Just moments ago . . .

KANSAS CITY SUFFERS HOMICIDE #90 AFTER ANOTHER SPATE OF GUNFIRE IN THE 18TH & VINE DISTRICT LEAVES A MAN DEAD!!!

Here's confirmation . . .

KMBC: Police are investigating a homicide in the 18th and Vine District. Off-duty officers were in the area when they heard gunshots just before 1 A.M Saturday. After canvassing the area, a man was found dead near the corner of 18th and Highland (Ave.).

Again, this is the 90th homicide so far in 2018 compared to 106 homicides last year and 80 the year before that . . . In August KCMO matched the all-time homicide record with 20 homicides reported and a horrifying frequency of at least 30 shootings occurring over 2-weeks.

Anyone with any info on the crime is encouraged to contact the CrimeStoppers tips hotline at 816-474-TIPS.

Update: Authorities have identified the victim but not many new details surrounding the gunfire.

hate to say this, but this one starts the end of year countdown and a tradition in KCMO that really sucks.

I'm sure we won't break the record but that just means that this election year we can ignore the issue like we always do.

Believe in something. Even if it's politicians who don't care how many people get killed in KCMO.

You think the 7 million is the end of it. KC will sink a quarter billion into it before we can ever talk about maybe using the money to improve neighborhoods and not just line the pockets of the politically connected.

Believe in something. Even if it's creating criminally-managed frauds with zero accountability.

Like anybody is surprised by this. Black people ruin everything. This area will never come back. It is surrounded by black people. I saw on the news someone is going to rehab those cool old buildings by there, talk about fools. Just two blocks south of the jazz district are some of KC's worst neighborhoods. No more money for the jazz district. Never try to connect it with East Crossroads. You can't attach anything successful to black people, they will simply ruin it like termites. Now solve the black-on-white hate crimes of Jonathan Porter and Jeffery McDonald.

18th and Vine is NOT embattled.
It is a corpse.
A very expensive body, to be sure, but dead none the less.
And the other comments are correct.
Millions of taxpayer dollars will continue to be poured into this decades-long fiasco and the money will disappear into thin air, just like most of the "programs and projects" on the east side.
Cowardly "funders" and politicos and absolutely no accountability for how money is spent by the usual suspects.
Momentum!

The cleave fights for millions of dollars a year for this crappy area but doesn’t do anything for the poor, he’s wasted well over a half billion dollars for what? Now it’s turned into a killing zone, another fine job for a worthless black politician

Typical democrat response to anything failing is pour money into the failure. The democrats somehow think that more money will solve problems and shut people up. They will not put forth the effort to determine the root cause of the problems.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are Stupid.

We need to get J Bling Reed involved and his clergy. That will stop it.

A great area for the tourists to visit, and the conventions to recommend to their clients for after hours entertainment. "Relax after a hard day working the booths and visit 18th and Vine"

How does anyone know the race of the victim or the suspect? They both could very well be white people. Racists.

Sheer actuarial demographics. Grow up.

Because we aren't deluded like you. If there's a white person involved that isn't an innocent victim, I will fuck my hat.

In the beginning 18th and Vine could have been cleaned up at a cost of about 5k using a bulldozer.

This has created another opportunity for Jermaine to pander to the blacks, call a press conference, get a picture for his ever ongoing campaign and just look like a shallow fool. Where IS Jermaine this weekend? Traveling yet again on the city dime?

Personally, I like some jazz, but you’re absolutely right, it’s not a popular genre anymore ... definitely not popular enough to support a museum. Regardless, it’s wrong to keep pouring money into a venue that can’t support itself, especially in KCMO, which needs so much work on infrastructure and city services.

Anonymous said...

Just another "attraction" in KCMO that's heavily subsidized by the taxpayer, but is nothing but a place of broken promises and empty dreams.
And a handful of insiders making some serious bucks.
Just like downtown.
It's hard to develop "momentum" out of thin air.

Is this what momentum and moving forward to make our city bestus ever looks like? Because if this is sLIE and gopherkc’s idea of progress they need to be hung, shot, castrated and then burned at the stake because they have ruined this city.

This is why you focus more money one what works and hope that it spreads to what doesn't work, rather than the other way around. So much money has been dumped into this area over the last several decades and it's only gotten worse over there. Obvious money is not the solution to these problems. Why is it hard to see this?

We need more cops that are willing to shoot hood rats.

You can’t castrate them because they don’t have any balls.

They aren't allowed to do that anymore. Society will go down because of it.

In that part of town a free beer and titty bar couldn't draw a steady clientele.

What have the 2 council members Quinton Lucas and Jermaine Reed from the 18th and Vine district who are both running for mayor done to head off this GROWING crime and blight? - Absolutely nothing that merits either one of them becoming head of the entire city when they can’t even improve their own district.
