KANSAS CITY 2019 HOMICIDES #72 & #73: TRAGIC YET APROPOS MURDER SPREE CONCLUDES MAYOR SLY'S TENURE!!!



Under the leadership of Mayor Sly James, the Kansas City homicide crisis has worsened and reached near historic levels of deadly violence.

To wit . . .

AT THE END OF MAYOR SLY'S TERM, KANSAS CITY HOMICIDES SPIKE!!! 1/2 DOZEN LOCALS MURDERED IN A WEEK!!!

And so we move to the next chapter in this tale of two cities, as developers and hipsters enjoy subsidy and promotion from 12th & Oak whilst neighborhoods endure near chaos and another bloody Summer. Tragically, only a new series of promises from an equally charismatic and beloved local leader offer hope for change.

More importantly, this isn't just a urban core crisis as the latest murders occurred in Southeast Kansas City & Brookside.

Here's a roundup of damage from last night as local crime spirals out of control in the Summer heat:

Fox4: Two men shot and killed overnight in Kansas City in two separate shootings

KCTV5: Man shot, killed at 57th and McGee in Kansas City

KSHB: Man dead following shooting in south Kansas City

KCTV5: Man shot at church parking lot, later dies at hospital in Kansas City

41 Action News: KCPD Investigating overnight homicide near 57th and McGee

Again, these killings marked 72nd & 73rd homicides so far this year compared to 63 at this time last year for an overall 15.87% increase.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

Don't expect Sly to admit anything but success. He's never really cared about crime or public safety. He has treated the police as a nuisance and doesn't really even like talking about crime as a local issue.

I guess selling a home in Brookside is going to get harder for the rest of the Summer. Seems like a shame that you have to pay insane property taxes just to live in a war zone.

Don't blame Sly. Blame the schools. The shooting victims and perpetrators are getting younger and younger as guns are more easily available.

^^^ There is is, just like clockwork.

Take a way the guns. Sly tried it, didn't work.

Has anybody thought about having a pizza party for all of the criminals? That might persuade them to put their guns down and start to turn around their lives.

Midnight basketball should do the trick. They probably can't shoot and dribble at the same time.

At this rate might be #77-#78 by 6:00 a.m. Monday morning in time for BREAKING NEWS!!!

^^^^^ Stupid to make predictions. You know those are real people, with families and people who love them. Some of them might also be innocent and just caught in the line of fire. Typical Internet tough guy, talking a big game but really a wimp.

^^^^ Late 60s and calling everybody else a geezer. Sorry wildman, you lose. Weird.

Just another weird guy said...

I'm guessing, as usual there will be blaming and racism but no solutions or work to hep KC from this group of malcontents.

Typical.

@12:08PM and yet I'm not in my 60's. Sorry geezer, you lose again. Weird.

^^^^ Weird. You obviously are AND you don't have a job. Sorry loser. You lose again. Weird.

As for the subject of homicides, it's time to call in the national guard and do a major gun sweet. End of story.

Oh please, not two more bitches making a bunch of comments and trying to hijack any conversation. Why don't you guys get a room. Make love and not war, that's really Kc's biggest problem.

you want to stop the murders, go after the guns. Sly tried to do it the wrong way and didn't have any luck. He was too arrogant to ask police about it. most of these criminals are armed with ILLEGAL guns and that's how to approach the problems. You don't need news laws, just enforce what's already on the books.

11:51 it’s never been easier to get guns today? Bullshit, the laws are tougher today to get them legally, the problem has always always always been people that buy and sell illegal guns, namely the drug dealers, they can get guns smuggled in from out of the country real easy. There are the few guns that were stolen from legal gun owners but the percentage of illegal guns coming from out of the country is ridiculous. Fast and furious is a prime example of how those guns made it back into the us.

12:04 if the family cared and they cared about their families they wouldn’t be out in the hood all night causing or following the trouble makers, very few of these idiots out at two and three o’clock in the morning are “innocent” stupid is what it is.

At this pace we will be at 95 by the end of August.

^^Oh, look, 12:04 is concerned enough to scold comments that trigger his tender heart. And, we're sure, 12:04, you're not just a typical internet SJW talking-head, because you're in the hoods daily helping the real families missing their loved ones, and mourning the innocents.

Naw. Just a whiner.

Real leadership at city hall would be a nice change that paid attention to crime FIRST instead of the needs of developers.

Low-caliber leadership leads to multiple misfires!!!

This happened at one of the only apartment complexes in Brookside. Keep this in mind when they try to get rid of zoning laws so mult-family properties can be built in single family neighborhoods

In other words section ape housing because the blacks want to live in a nice neighborhood right?
