KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDE #31: MAN SHOT DEAD NEAR MLK BLVD!!!



An interesting phenomena that has arisen in local crime reporting might provide a solution to the current KCMO petition crisis . . .

Kansas City newsies don't seem to like using the MLK BLVD name when there's a murder around the area formerly known as The Paseo. And therein lies the fix: Keep half signs up for The Paseo installed so that reporters don't have to help blight a swath of Kansas City with news of more killings that remain constant in this part of town no matter the nomenclature.

The latest:

KMBC: Kansas City Police Investigate After Man Found Dead In Middle of Street

Deets:

"Officers said the man had been shot in the area of the Paseo and 69th Terrace around 3:15 a.m. Police do not have a description of the suspect. They are asking anyone with information to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477."

Again, this is the 31st homicide so far this year compared to 31 at this time last year and 26 the year before that . . .

Fixing the murders not the street names should be the priority.

^^^^ That would be nice but it's not going to happen during election season.

Politics is ALWAYS more important than public safety in KCMO.

KC has a crime problem that isn't going to be solved with rebranding. It's about putting more police in the street.

But money needed to put police on the streets was spent on changing the name of The Paseo. Money that is now sent to the King family for using their name. Money that will have to go to the King family every year. That is what Sly and the city counsel did to KC because they hate police officers. This is the very reason not to vote for counsel members especially the black ones!

Where’s sLIE, Jolie, Lucas and petersucker? Aren’t they supposed to go to every crime scene? Didn’t think so, but hey! We’re well on our way to 200 murders this year!!!

And Jean Petersucker Baker will let almost every one of the murderers go free.

The street sign change was supposed to prevent these acts of violence.

No, they're not. Weird.

The only thing that will prevent violence down there is 75000 one way plane tickets to Africa and a fleet of bulldozers

Bringing up the name MLK, I am wondering if anyone ever determined how much money and how often the king family will receive for the naming rights 2 the Paseo? Also wonder how much the family gets in naming rights for the school in Kansas City that also Bears his name? Seems like double-dipping.

People who are involved in criminal activities are most likely to be victims of shootings etc. This is not mentioned in most news articles. Many of the murder victims are in fact very criminal themselves. Criminals seem to kill other criminals first, due to grudges. The criminals suddenly find themselves dying and leaving this earth on a one way trip to Hell. Much like Lynn Athon when she died. And there aint no coming back. And there aint anyone in hell to complain to, so yell and scream all you want - nobody will ever hear you, or care. As your in Hell. So scream your head off, it don't make no dif to me, honey

Good question about how much the King family will be paid FOREVER for renaming Paseo, 10:51am.
But here's a hint.
When the Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture tried to purchase some MLK items from the family, the institution COULDN'T AFFORD to pay what the King family demanded.
Dig deep KCMO residents!
Because the revs are sure not going to come up with the coin.

This is the main reason why I was against renaming the Paseo to MLK Blvd. Martin Luther King Jr. died experience so much violence in the last years of his life and died in a violent manner, too. There is just too much violence along the Paseo and most of it is never solved or resolved. Think of another street that best represents Dr. King. Paseo is not it.

As I said before, you can call that street anything you like but it will always be the paseo, just like paseo bridge.

Historic East-side Satchel Paige ballpark is seriously eroding to the point it's unsafe. It is used for inner city sports. However, the city can't afford to repair it, with MLK signage needing financed.
One can still drive along (Paseo) MLK regardless of fake name. However, kids cannot play ball due to unsafe condition of this once proud facility. Not enough glitz and media appeal for the fake revs, Slie and council members, I guess.

Best investment KC could make. Be sure to put Geezer Hater, Angela K and Blindron Funklier in the baggage hatch.

200 murders this year without any leaders to stop it, now that’s momentum and moving forward right there!

^^^^ Sad but true.

For the Latinos that lost "the Paseo," shouldn't the "George Brett Bridge" be renamed "Escobar Bridge," especially since George has left KC for Phoenix.
