Kansas City Anti-Violence Rally Didn't Thwart Another Bloody Gunfire Weekend

The very good people who participate in these efforts are not the problem . . . And it's kinda sad that their continued effort often doesn't resonate in the community. Here's a better look at their commitment as this town suffered multiple shootings, another local homicide and youngsters shot in the legs over the past few days. Read more:

Anti-violence groups seek reversal of spiking homicide rate

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - At the corner of East 31 Street and Prospect Avenue, dozens of people wore orange and held signs Sunday, urging drivers to honk their horns. The message was to end gun violence that plagues Kansas City, Missouri. "Put down the guns; it has to stop," Mothers in Charge founder Roslyn Temple said.

A rally with bright clothes and signs is not going to stop the violence. They need candles and puppets. Especially puppets. That should do the trick.

Gun violence will decline if Jean Petersucker Baker starts doing her job as prosecutor. Don’t hold your breath.

And on and on.
How can the electeds continue to endlessly fund "programs" that have ZERO effect on crime and homicides year after year?
How about some performance standards, time lines, and accountability.
And DEFUND efforts that have no results, regardless of how "well meaning" they are.
Way past time to hurt some feelings, call some friends and insiders to account, and actually try to save some lives.
It's really not that hard or complicated.

Its all about hiring folks. Its all about the process and the results are not important. As long as you hire the right people...
