TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! WEEKEND DEADLY DOWNTOWN DOUBLE SHOOTING INSPIRES KANSAS CITY TO RETHINK FAILED 'ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT' STRATEGY!!!



A truism that our blog community has touted for years is finally making progress amid the latest weekend spate of violence.

To wit . . .

TKC BLOG COMMUNITY CONFIRMED!!! KANSAS CITY ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICTS ARE DANGEROUS & COSTLY DISTRACTIONS THAT MUST BE RECONSIDERED!!!

Here's the breakdown . . .

Security Crackdown Killed Westport


A couple of years ago an off-duty cop was shot & killed and the place hasn't been the same since. This Summer a "street vacation" chased most of the patrons away and the weekend crackdown has slowed biz by all accounts along with setting a dangerous public road precedent.

18th & Vine Is A Pricey Shooting Gallery


There has been 3 homicides over the past year in the 18th & Vine District. The number of shootings are too many to count. Meanwhile, 100-MILLION worth of taxpayer subsidy since the 90s proves that this party place has FAILED over the course of a generation.

Broke Northland Zona Rosa Almost Kaput


The Entertainment district problems goes deeper than just violence . . .

Northland Zona Rosa teetering on the verge of bankruptcy and junk bond FAIL proves the strategy of backing big party places is faulty even in the nicest of neighborhoods and middle-class clientele.

Violent Teen Flash Mobs Ruined The Plaza


Of course we know the Plaza started the KCMO entertainment district trending decline. Sure, violent teen flash mobs garnered a lot of publicity but let's not discount the demolition of historic buildings, encroachment of tall buildings and the Internets basically killing the retail biz.

For these reasons and so many more . . . Insiders, residents and a great many voters believe that it's time for KCMO to rethink entertainment districts and focus more work on neighborhoods.

You decide . . .

KC can't have anything nice. Ms-13 gangs and urban teens are a big part of the problem but not the only culprit. Agree that we need to look at a lot of greedy businesses.

Just like so many developments in KC, none of these places live up the the hype or the money that taxpayers have invested.

The missing piece is the convention hotel, that should help us avoid all of this and if it doesn't than than the missing piece is probably the streetcar to connect all of these places and give us better access.

Focus such as build a city jail that will house ten thousand people, give cops their power back to the 80's era, get a county prosecutor and state judges worth their weight.

Be very leery of the revenge seeking murderous blacks, stay away from them at all costs, the popo can’t touch them and petersucker won’t prosecute them. “WE ARE DOOMED TO DIE AT THE HANDS OF THESE FOOLS”

And nobody will say or do a damn thing about it.

5:19 Is right, it is time to go Giuliani in KC. I can't stand what the guy has turned into since 9/11 but his clean up of NYC is undeniable. I'm a 50 year old guy who did something very rare this past Thursday: I went to Westport at 1 AM and it was shocking. Dead doesn't describe it. Kelly's had less than 10 people in it. The streets were deserted. My prime drinking age 25 years ago Westport would have been packed on a Thursday. The 3% of our extremely violent population has ruined everything for the rest of us and it is not right. Nobody should have to worry about being shot and merchants shouldn't have their businesses ruined by those same people who ruin everything else they touch.

@6:29am
When close to 90% of KCMO homicide victims are black and the percentage of perpetrators is even more than that, pointing out those facts is not "prejudice".
KCMO likes to talk about making "data driven decisions".
So there's the data.
Decide to focus on the facts and do something about the carnage.

6:29 Tell that bullshit to your liberal buddies while you are sucking each other off.

"Sure, violent teen flash mobs garnered a lot of publicity but let's not discount the demolition of historic buildings, encroachment of tall buildings and the Internets basically killing the retail biz."

NO! It's black people. P.E.R.I.O.D.

And 5:52 is right. We are not supposed to notice it and if we do, we lose our jobs. I guess that is better than being in Europe, where if you notice anything and say something out loud, you literally go to jail for it.

Our leaders, our politicians are disgusting, treacherous, elitist scum.

97 is just the number killed. There are multiple shootings every night. Kc is a war zone. Yes, it is the blacks. Yes, they do ruin everything. Yes, blacks know this and knowledge this, so why can't liberal white douches also knowledge this and let the police do their jobs. The police need to be allowed to crack down on the low life thugs no matter their race otherwise we are headed for a race war. and white people will win because we are superior so fuck off.

LOL haha good one! Funny stuff!

There's always a consultant out there who is willing to tell you what you want to hear. Ditch the consultants and ask actual business people or just use common sense.

Besides the violence there are other factors driving the decline of the entertainment district. Online purchases have pushed traditional retail off a cliff. Home theater and Netflix have all but finished Movie houses and video stores. Even bars, where singles went to go meet, have been displaced by dating apps and social media. The violence is just one more reason to stay home. That taxpayers were ever on the hook for the failure of these places is the real crime that should be punished.

Super Dave said...

5:19 I think you mean the 60's, it was during the 80's that crime and law enforcement changed and not for the better at all.

The folks screaming for law and order are the ones who will scream the loudest to it being a bad thing if it were to happen. These are the ones who want to blame the gun instead of the fool using the gun.

The blame for all the violence and killing needs to be addressed and those who are doing it are the ones who need to feel the full extent of the law thrown at them and be the recipients of harsh sentences. Blaming the gun is a childish style reaction same as the child who blames the dog for eating all the chocolate chip cookies.

Those who say long jail sentences and harsh treatment does not deter crimes are delusional. Funny that since the liberals have had it their way violent crime has increased not decreased.

When criminals laugh at their jail sentences and make claim to there not being any time they can't do, it's time to make it so the criminal minded folks start saying, "Holy crap I ain't going to risk going to jail for doing that!" When a person is facing execution for killing another it might make them stop and think if dying themselves is worth killing someone else.

Criminals need to fear the long arm of the law as much as we the law abiding citizens fear the criminal.

Investigators say a man was found shot and killed at 31st & Kensington Monday morning.

Nobody thinks that all blacks are the problem; CRIMINALS are the problem. Right now, statistics show that most violent criminals are young black men. As Super Dave implied, cops and the law needs to have their hands untied, so crime (again) doesn't pay. It may be called RACIST to arrest young black men. But isn't it also RACIST (on their part) that it is young black men committing most of the violent crime? The police are arresting criminals, not blacks.
I also think that building the 18th & Vine area up with bars/clubs will attract the criminal element away from Westport and the Plaza.

Old people! You all are some of the dumbest people on the planet! Get a clue! As long as no innocent bystanders are hurt, NOBODY CARES! I've never been scared to go anywhere in this city!

P Lease do us all a favor and sty right here, clucking like the hens you all are.

Security crackdown did not kill westport. It was an effort to try and save it because KC has been pushing P&L for the last 10 years. KC got defrauded with all these entertainment districts. Most got built right on the verge of smartphones taking over the world leading to less people going out. Less and less people go out and that's too bad

Tony's spreading negative energy with the usual "doomsday" theme . There is no way the City will allow Zona Rosa to go under. Someone will bail them out or their debts will be written off at the taxpayers expense. Tony's wants to make it seem like we are all screwed and the end is near as usual. Don't buy into the hype.

8:22 (2nd post) makes a good point. People focus on the number of homicides, but if there were a tally of shootings it would really have to be off the charts. The coloreds, for whatever reason, are horrible shots but the injuries they cause still put taxpayers on the hook for emergency services and, eventually, disability payments, so a huge drain on society. This criminal element is going to be the final blow to KC and the only people that refuse to believe it are butt pirates like 11:15 who get shot regularly from behind by thug DNA.

2:17, GLUG! GLUG!.....is more likely BAD, than SAD! said...

Dyslexics, ADHDs, or just plain lazy idjits struggle with reading and comprehension, therefore, are unlikely to read beyond minimal data. SAD.

Toilet water guzzling leftists don't want anyone to read anything that presents race, commie, crimmie, gay, and cray topics in anything other than a positive spin. BAD.

And, decently intelligent people are willing to seek data that may support or refute their knowledge.

Any media reports on what was the incited the shooting? Probably 99% of these are criminal shooting criminals or an innocent family member/friend of the criminal that was in close proximity. I'd be curious if the Star reported on the % of shooting victims that were an innocent bystander unrelated to any criminal/criminal conduct. That's the reason the First Friday shooting gained so much attention. If those types of shootings increase, I think we'll see swift action from the police and city hall (not sure how effective though).
