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.
