TKC EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK!!! HOMICIDE ON THE PASEO OVERNIGHT!!! UPCOMING MLK NAME CHANGE FAILS TO STOP KANSAS CITY URBAN CORE VIOLENCE!!!

And so . . .
OVERNIGHT THE PASEO ENDURED ANOTHER KANSAS CITY MURDER DESPITE COLD, ICY WEATHER!!!
To be fair, an optimist might claim that maybe once the name is finally switched over, there will be fewer murders . . . Sadly, there's no evidence for that in much the same way that there isn't any evidence for an economic stimulus attached to the rebranding as some of the Revs claim.
We're calling this one "EXCLUSIVE" (for giggles and) because only The Northeast News has bothered to fact check any of the hype around this controversial decision that didn't earn a vote as was initially promised by supporters of the name change.
Here's the report . . .
