Witness Kansas City Rainbow Coalition Of Crime Suspect Mughots And Why Stereotypes About Racial Stats Are Stupid
Amateur statisticians are just about as annoying and nearly as persistent as newbie urban planners in their reliance on sketchy data in order to make broad generalizations and hateful stereotypes about entire communities based on a limited number of alleged misdeeds.
Recently, a few of readers sent complaints regarding the largely unimportant demographic data of two high profile crime suspects. Mostly it doesn't really matter one way or another and the function of this blog is simply to share the info in a manner more captivating than bored newsies working the holidays. However, the exchange did inspire this post.
What does it all mean???
Well . . .
We've all seen the stereotypes about crime stats and why it's more likely that a Mexican dude is going to make a run for the border or whatever . . .
Always missing from this data are inconvenient facts like this one:
Newsweek: White Men Have Committed More Mass Shootings than Any Other Group
And still that stat has absolutely no implication on the average white dude who, hopefully, is not gong to take out his angst over a quiet life of desperation in a way that isn't nearly as imaginative or helpful as interpretative dance.
Nevertheless, the stat game continues from every vantage and largely serves as substitute for independent thought given that most of the data "analysis" is cribbed from hate sites or put on blast as a cheap rhetorical appeal to authority rather than anything resembling an attempt to exchange ideas.
Therefore, today we present this DIVERSE look at the local crime scene and yet another indication that there is no demographic that is without SUSPECTED creepers.
Here's the local lineup . . .
Man charged 12 years ago with child rape in Kansas arrested
Parkville man charged with posting revenge porn of ex in her neighborhood, online
Kansas City man charged with rape and aggravated sexual battery
You decide . . .
