KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDE #41: MURDER RATE RISES 20% OVER LAST YEAR!!!
As the general election approaches, notice that there's no real plan to curb the local murder count. No new ideas, no initiatives that haven't been discussed repeatedly and no evidence that the quotient of killing on KCMO streets is a civic priority. Instead, local politicos talking about the issue tout their "work" on the tragic topic that has led us to this point.
Fact . . .
KANSAS CITY SUFFERS A HOMICIDE UPTICK OF 20% OVER LAST YEAR!!!
This is the 41st homicide of 2019 compared to 34 at this time last year. Even worse, the murder rate at this point in the year is at nearly a 10-YEAR-HIGH.
