KANSAS CITY CONSEQUENCES: TEEN CHARGED AFTER ERIN LANGHOFER SHOT IN HEAD & KILLED DURING CROSSROADS FIRST FRIDAY FOOD TRUCK FIGHT!!!



During a solemn press conference this afternoon, authorities worked diligently to refocus attention regarding the threat of a horrific Kansas City tragedy into public information documenting the hard work behind the scenes of a constant crime fighting mission during this increasingly deadly Summer of 2019.

The action of two police offices was undoubtedly heroic and they made KCMO streets safer last night but only after a nightmarish scenario played out which should give every local party-goer a moment of pause.

Nevertheless . . .

The facts of last night's shooting contradict the feelings of those who are too focused on demographics.

The racial makeup of the Crossroads crowd is identified by many as the singular root cause of recent trouble (it's way more complicated than that) but those same keyboard warriors are silent or refuse to note the bravery in bringing the men to justice also comes from a diverse KCPD force.



Officer Allen and Officer Stubbs are the two officers being credited by the Kansas City Police Department in chasing down individuals involved in the disturbance that led to the shooting on 18th and Main.

And so, the local murder count continues but this tragic homicide of an innocent young woman in the prime of her life has drawn the attention of the nation and threatens to derail and destroy the "momentum" that millions worth of taxpayer cash and the efforts of many have paid dearly to achieve for this part of Kansas City.

Here's the narrative from the Prosecutor's office:

A KC teen charged in fatal shooting at First Friday event



An 18-year-old Kansas City man has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting on Friday evening near 18th and Main that took the life of an innocent bystander, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

According to court records filed today, about 10 p.m., Kansas City police responded on a call of shots fired in the area of 18th and Main Street. They found the female victim, Erin Langhofer, 25, of Overland Park, KS. She had been near food trucks on 18th Street and was not involved in any altercation prior to the gunfire. Officers began a foot pursuit with three males running from the scene. One of the males, who was ordered to stop running, dropped a handgun before lying on the ground. He identified himself . . . The 9 mm he dropped was later confirmed to have fired the 9 mm shell casings found near the scene of the shooting. The defendant told police detectives he was the only one who fired after he and others had been in a physical altercation near the food trucks.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $500,000 cash.

would love to see somebody besides the bloggers on TKC to start talking about putting more police on the streets. If we are going to prevent crime and stop these killings we need to make our streets safe and just talk about it constantly!

Anonymous said...

If only we had better gun control. A law to prevent 18 year olds from owning handguns is a good start.

Anonymous said...

I don't mean to minimize the tragedy here talking about expansion of police powers in the city but, KCPD gets more money then they deserve. A city this size spends 20 percent of the tax revenue on police. KCPD gets 32 percent already. The police officers last night got paid to do a job, they get benefits like insurance, retirement and promotional opportunities. More than an act of bravery was the ability to sprint faster than these teens could run.

Like many others, this poor girl happened to be in the right place at the wrong time.
And if anyone thinks that this is a death penalty case, think again.

No, the haters aren't interested in making our city a better place, they just want to drag everyone down to their disgusting level. They don't care about the truth. They only have time for hate.

KC needs to stand up the them and this kind of violence. It actually comes from the same kind of ignorance.

@5:24 stated "A law to prevent 18 year olds from owning handguns is a good start."
There is already one but the criminal did not abide by it. Their is also a law about carrying a gun into events such as this.
What evidence is there that the thug owned the gun as opposed to it being stolen.
Bottom line criminals do not follow and obey the law.

I'd like to see mean jean get tough here. None of this 2nd degree crap. Put the guy behind bars for no less than 50 years. Anything less than 25 is just a slap on the wrist. A court really concerned with justice would start with murder 1 and ask for the death penalty.

Anonymous said...

What gun control would have prevented this or any other law. Murder is illegal, 18 year olds cannot possess a handgun and numerous other laws were broken. Laws do not prevent crime they just need to be and continue to be enforced. Jackson county is a joke when it comes to convicting and enforcing the law and Lucas is only going to continue that proble. Crime is going to get worse under the new mayor and worthless Jackson county..

Anonymous said...

6:11 is exactly right.

5:24 hey dummy, there already is a law in Kansas and Missouri stating that you have to be 21 to buy a handgun, are you really that stupid?

The criminal black murdering thugs don’t obey the laws, never have, never will.

Because he went down easily when told by the popo and admitted his racist murder, mean jean petersucker will let him off for time served, give five years probation and then he’ll murder someone else within three months of getting out. just wait, youll see

Imstayinginjoco said...

Yes, that was horrible in Texas, and yes that was committed by a young white man as in most of these national mass shootings. However, the negro community has a disproportionate amount of crime, and mostly that’s towards their own kind. Their culture is a disaster, and no amount of money will fix it. I voted for Obama twice.... However, never again do I see myself voting for dems. They are crazy and will make excuses for blacks forever. Close your eyes and imagine if all the blacks disappeared..... just think how safe our country would become. Make Amarica Great Again . Don’t give these nasty animals nothing

THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED! As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY. We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!

This American carnage will not end right here and right now because there will be no changes to gun laws under my administration.

As of 7pm- a simple internet search shows the KC Star does NOT post a pic of the alleged murderer who killed a white person.
Channel 4 and 5 put up a picture.
Why is that?
No weekend coverage? How hard could that be? What are the folks allegedly running the outfit the KC Star excuses?
Folks need to see the perp so they can come to their own conclusions on whatever their minds need to to help heal.
When will the Star do the right things?

6:31 Wait for it.

Too early to call this game.

Behind the scenes the power players are in a frenzy to assign blame.

From what I’ve read, the manifesto was a hoax, quickly posted on 4chan and then copied over to 8chan (obviously to link QAnon with the murders). The Anons also quickly researched and posted previous posts of the shooter and he was anti-Trump, anti-MAGA, uber liberal, etc. More recent posts are probably manipulated as well. Sorry, no sauce – research for yourself. The eyewitnesses seemed genuine about how it went down (3-4 men dressed in all black with weapons entered the store and started shooting; not law enforcement), so I don’t think that mixed up crazed young man was the only shooter. He’s the patsy. We still don’t know what happened in Las Vegas, right??? Antifa has been targeting El Paso. Antifa has openly stated they are going to arm themselves. Antifa is funded. At this point, we have no idea what the truth is. Per the usual. The Dem candidates all immediately posted their support for disarming everyone. Again, per the usual. Sick and sad.

Meanwhile in El Paso, TX White dude kills 20...injures another 20 but we gotta tippy toe around facts that White men are the most dangerous thugs known to man, killing on every continent in the world, raping the earth's resources and acting holier than thou when the truth is exposed. It won't be on the news the way this single (not mass) murder has been amplified... they'll try to explain the behavior away as mental illness but... we will see everybody same time next week with a different White guy killing for sport and nobody will bat two eyelashes at the problem. Yes, tippy toe around the issue, indeed.

2. We are going to hear cries against 2A here any second now. Let me ask you this...would you be more afraid of a gun in the hands of someone more likely to vote Democrat or Republican? Its time to start having a Democrat tax...a tax on those that vote Democrat. All problems in America can be tied to their approaches and policies. Its time for them to pay.

All of you that think having a gun control law would have prevented this young woman's death are wrong. The guy with the gun was already breaking the law. A sticker by a door with the picture of a gun with a big red circle and a cross line indicating no guns allowed would not have saved her life either. This is a mental issue where every young person does video games where you go shoot everybody and you get shot but you don't actually feel what a bullet will do to you was just the start of their indoctrination into violence. Blame the game makers. Blame the parents for all of the violent screen time. Blame the leaders that get up and make speeches about violence and shout at the top of their voices against others.
This woman did not have to be injured or die. We all did it to her because we want to be mad and angry. Society wants everyone to be successful and rich. And if you're not then go shoot somebody. In KC we lost a good person. El Paso lost 20. Parents stop your kids from having unlimited time to play violent games and hear anger, get them into a church, keep them in school, get them interested in something productive not just sitting around every day. Keep them busy doing good things. Put down your smartphones and connect with your kids.
The KCPD officers are indeed heroes and should be celebrated for their efforts, it is just too bad they had to have this experience. We as a cit and people can do better.

Super Dave said...

So glad these officers were there and did what had to be done. Just proves having more police officers around might have more impact on stopping and catching those who break the law rather than hoping by chance an officer is around.

This could have been a lot worse with more than just one person losing their life to a common street thug.

Bob said...

Just an update: I just read that 8 people killed in mass shooting in Ohio. Senseless killings.
If you suspect that someone is capable of this type of thing please please please go to your police station and talk to an officer. They will protect your identity and investigate the veracity of your information without judgement.
I'd rather see that happen than putting more innocent people die and police in danger of having to confront a person with a gun and bad intentions.

Charles Whitman said...

Something weird is going on. The El Paso mass shooter was immediately identified as a "white nationalist", and was referred as such on several Sunday news shows; yet the details of the Dayton shooter (even though he is dead) have not been released. Why? Was he a "white nationalist" too? That would give more fuel to the gun control fire. Or was he non-white, which may hurt the anti-white agenda? I don't know. But the media's incomplete reporting is noticable and suspicious.

Charles Whitman said...

Just identified as Connor Betts. I stand corrected.

***Correction... I gave it the benefit of the doubt for one week's time before we had to discuss The White Male Monster's insatiable appetite for killing innocent people for sport. Turns out, not even 24 hours after El Paso... another White Male killed another 9 people and injured 30. Yeah...lets keep tippy toeing around the problem. One taken into custody alive and peaceably. Not to take anything away from happened to this suburbanite but a lot of innocent people died the same way she did across this nation and mostly at the hands of White men. Unfortunately, her death isn't anymore significant than the rest.
