CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN TRENDING AFTER JARED MILLER HIT & KILLED BY SEMI-TRUCK ON DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY LOOP!!! MEANWHILE FRIENDS DENOUNCE CRUEL SOCIAL MEDIA SPECULATION!!!
For the record, nobody walks through the downtown Kansas City loop along the route Jared Miller took leading up to his untimely demise. There's no pedestrian crossing, it does not serve as a shortcut nor is this an easily accessible path. Even the hobos who sleep under the bridge know that walking across this part of the loop means certain death - These are facts important to any discussion of KCMO pedestrian public safety.
On a brighter note, after the death of a celebrated downtown Kansas City advocate, his friends have contributed greatly to a crowdfunding effort that hopes to support Mr. Miller's wife who was obviously distraught after the tragedy.
Miller Family Support Fund
In two days they've raised more than 5 grand among more than 100 contributors.
Again, news notes have been vague and mostly serve to tout hype for the Downtown Renaissance whist callously using this tragic demise as another opportunity to push talking points :
Pedestrian Accident 'Robs' Downtown Kansas City Of An Enthusiastic Champion
Meanwhile, the deets remain mostly a mystery and a few notes to our blog community call some of the speculation in the comments "clueless" whilst they fail to offer any more info.
Nevertheless, we respect that viewpoint and note the victims of this tragedy shouldn't feel compelled to explain anything during their time of loss & grief. BY THAT SAME TOKEN, using this horrific tragedy to bolster a controversial downtown-development-focused agenda reveals an abhorrent, ruthless and cynical stratagem deployed by proponents of endless downtown taxpayer subsidy. These ghoulish sponsored content pros will stop at nothing to attain their political goals as they utilize this terrible loss for their own benefit.
