To wit . . .

CHECK THE AFTERMATH OF AN EPIC CRIME CRACKDOWN ON KANSAS CITY STREETS FOCUSED ON PUSHING BACK THE 2019 DEADLY HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!

TKC PERSPECTIVE . . . This Federal level law enforcement sweeep indicates that KCMO violence WOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN WORSE if local authorities weren't afforded a great deal of help.

And so, here's the word . . .

OPERATION TRIPLE BEAM

HUNDREDS OF FUGITIVES ARRESTED, FIREARMS AND ILLEGAL DRUGS SEIZED DURING VIOLENT CRIME INITIATIVE

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Operation Triple Beam, an initiative led by the U.S. Marshals Service to track down some of the metropolitan area’s most violent and persistent offenders, resulted in hundreds of arrests and the seizure of dozens of firearms and illegal drugs. Results of the 10-week initiative were announced today by U.S. Attorney Tim Garrison, U.S. Marshal Mark James, and Missouri Governor Mike Parson.

“Operation Triple Beam brought a laser focus by all levels of law enforcement – federal, state, and local – to combat violent crime by targeting the worst offenders,” Garrison said. “Armed and dangerous fugitives were located, arrested, and taken off the street to face justice in state and federal court.

“We are marshaling federal resources to combat intolerable levels of violent crime, and working closely with our partners at the state and local level,” Garrison added. This week, three prosecutors from the Missouri Attorney General’s Office were designated as new Special Assistant U.S. Attorneys to prosecute violent offenders in federal court in Kansas City, Mo.

During Operation Triple Beam, which ran from late May to the middle of August, law enforcement officers made 355 state and federal arrests for outstanding warrants, violent crimes, and drugs. Many of the arrestees were among the most violent and active offenders in the Kansas City metropolitan area, and many of these fugitives had multiple outstanding warrants from more than one agency.

Law enforcement officers seized 69 firearms, more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition, and 4.4 kilograms of illegal drugs (including methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana). Many of those apprehended during Operation Triple Beam now face new charges for drugs and firearms possession in both state and federal courts.

“I want to thank the brave and dedicated officers, deputies, and agents who worked tirelessly around the clock to go after and bring these predators to justice,” James said. “The violence terrorizing our communities and neighborhoods must stop, but law enforcement cannot do it alone. We need citizens to pick up the phone and call the Crime Stoppers hotline. The reward has been increased to $25,000 and TIPS remain completely anonymous.

“The United States Marshals Service in conjunction with our local, state, and federal partners will not rest while violent criminals victimize our community,” James said. “If you’re a fugitive, surrender now.”

The goal of Operation Triple Beam was to apply resistance to the overall spike in violent crime and gun-related violence that peaks during the summer months. The operation focused on individual violent offenders and gang members who have shown a propensity to commit repeated violent acts against persons. Departments with proactive units were asked to target their enforcement activities under this initiative with a focus on arresting subjects who are involved in drug trafficking activities and the illegal possession/use of firearms. The intent was to remove subjects from the street who are responsible for fueling violent crime in the community and to seize illegally possessed drugs and firearms that are at the center of their violent activities.

The arrest types were as follows: drugs-117, weapons-71, burglary-25, assault-22, vehicle theft-17, fraud-14, robbery-10, homicide-8, sexual offenses-6, sexual assault-4, arson-1, failure to register as a sex offender-1, other crimes-59.

The U.S. Marshals Service provided equipment, training, investigative expertise, and overtime to assist local agencies in the endeavor. Operation Triple Beam included the Kansas City, Mo., and Independence, Mo., police departments, the sheriff’s departments from Platte, Clay, Jackson and Cass counties, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The U.S. Marshals Midwest Violent Fugitive Task Force-Kansas City Division operates in conjunction with members of the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, the Independence, Mo., Police Department, the Jackson County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and other federal law enforcement partners. The task force objectives are to seek out and arrest fugitives charged with violent crimes, drug offenses, sex offenses, and other serious felonies. Nationally, the U.S. Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 67 local fugitive task forces, eight regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.

EXCELLENT WORK!

We need this as a year round effort and maybe even 24/7. Putting the violent criminals behind bars is the only way to keep us all safe.

The last line is telling. More crime from foreign countries. THIS is why we have to take real action to talk about our border security.

Granger said...

^^^^ Absolutely correct.

We need better borders and more law enforcement. There's nothing wrong with keeping our home front safe. Thanks for this post Tk.

But the homicide count is higher than ever. Weird.

Sorry to be a weirdo.

Weird.

Hopefully most of the arrests were federal so Jean Petersucker Baker can’t let them out with no bail and then not prosecute them at all. Jean Petersucker Baker is worthless.

But I thought that marijuana was legal in Kansas City? Too bad.

Jean Petersucker Baker is the criminal’s best friend. So are all the liberal faggot judges who got their fake law degrees at UMKC.

That's not a whole lot of drugs or guns pulled from 350 arrests. oh well. They're just releasing to try to make it look like they're doing something while the violent crime rate is off the charts and innocent girls are getting shot at first friday.

This is just a propaganda piece put out by local enforcement to save face, not actual change

The real question here is where are they putting these thugs???

Anonymous said...

5:58 you blooming idiot. 69 firearms taken from those who commit crimes is a great start to bitch slapping these thugs off the streets. Sure maybe it's just a drop in the bucket but it's a start.

Momentum!

So it takes the state's governor and law enforcement and the feds to do what's serious and has been needed for a very long time to at least try to curb violence in KCMO.
So much for the necessity and effectiveness of either Jackson County or KCMO governments.
Good example of the nonsensical nonstarter of local control of the KCPD.
And shows just how empty all of Sly's and other's wailing about state gun legislation has been.
Lots of lessons here, and not much to crow about what passes for local government in KCMO.
And it didn't even cost $25,000 a tip!

The drug charges won't be prosecuted. It's good they got those guns off the streets. They should do this more often.

I see FBI, ATF, and DEA... so my question is WHERE WAS ICE???

Oh yeah, Trump has them raiding food processors to arrest tax paying working women with American citizen kids. He has them at grade school to pick up parent dropping off their kids.

If Trump had a brain, he would have directed ICE to be involved with this operation to arrest illegals committing violent and drug related crimes.

What a wasted opportunity and yet another broken promise.

Excellent. Now bring our troops home from the pretend war in Afghanistan and put them on our southern border really protecting our freedom.

Golly gee. Thank goodness we have you, Trump-hating anonymous poster guy, to properly decide and direct the operations of federal law enforcement!
