TKC QUESTION: HOW CAN WE MAKE KANSAS CITY FIRST FRIDAY SAFE AGAIN?!?



The tragic killing of an innocent woman has shaken Kansas City to its core and caused locals to second-guess the development agenda which has dominated City Hall for nearly a decade.

Now, in the aftermath of this disaster, what's clear is the the responsibility for fixing this situation falls upon more than just police and City Hall but to the entire community.

Why?

Because the response  from 1st Friday organizers so far reveals that Crossoads insiders don't really have a clue about the challenges they're confronting.

This article reveals as much . . .

First Fridays organizers to re-examine safety protocol

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - First Fridays is an event for families to enjoy local art and food, however Friday night changed everything. "We've never had anything happen like this," Jeff Owens, Vice President of the Crossroads Community Association and Chair for the First Fridays event said.


And so we ask . . .

HOW CAN KANSAS CITY RESCUE FIRST FRIDAY AFTER THE DEADLY SHOOTING SHATTERS THE ILLUSION OF SAFETY?!?!

We'll compile some of the best comments if there are enough people willing to share honest insight and not just the same reactionary garbage from both sides . . .

Thing of it is, our blog community believes this Crossroads debate over public safety from gunfire runs parallel to this weekend's national discussion regarding gunfire, politics and mass shootings . . .

Examples and some of the most provocative op/ed reporting after a bloody weekend:

Anti-Trump After Tragedy

Trump administration is "facilitating and enabling" youth to commit "terrorism," ex-FBI official says after El Paso shooting

Hours after the mass shooting in El Paso on Saturday, which left 20 dead and at least 26 others injured, former FBI assistant director Frank Figliuzzi accused President Donald Trump and his administration of "facilitating and enabling" American youth to commit acts of domestic "terrorism" by failing to explicitly condemn hate against immigrants.

Within 13 hours in two U.S. cities-El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio-at least 29 people were killed in mass shootings on Saturday and Sunday. Police in Dayton, Ohio were gathering information on Sunday morning about a shooting that took place in the city's downtown Oregon neighborhood at about 1:00am.

The nation is in crisis and what I fear is that things will just get worse during election season. What's horrible is that there are so many voices using these tragedies to blame and to attack for their own political reasons but not anybody who can unite the country in expressing remorse. You can't even express sympathy without being attacked.

I love Kansas City and I love the United States. I think we can make it through this crisis but what I know for sure is that the answers probably won't come from some of the very same people on both sides who only point out the flaws in the ideology of their political opponents without any introspection or examination of their own role in the crisis.

After every tragedy THEY want you to give up your free speech rights and your gun rights.

After that, problem is solved and if it's not there is no one who could dare complain.

You see thugs ain't scared of cops. Have to put the fear of dealing with the consequences back into the peoples minds. Harsh punishment, hard time served in jail will in time stop a lot of this street violence. If people don't want to behave lock them up and throw away the key. Better yet just kick them out of the country if they use a gun to commit a crime.

Call in the Army, surround the Inner City, do a house-to-house search for firearms, confiscate all firearms found in a house or business where Felons can be present, immediately arrest and hold anyone found to be in possession of a firearm who cannot legally own one (Felon, minor, no CCW, etc.).

Impose a mandatory death sentence for any felon found to be in possession of a firearm, sentence to be carried out without possibility of appeal within one week.

Impose a mandatory death sentence with the above provisions on anyone found to have provided a firearm to a felon or minor.

If this does not suit your sensibilities or "interferes with your Rights", stand around winging your hands and whining about "senseless violence".

Try electing some people in KCMO who are more interested in being serious about the actual responsibilities of municipal government than they are being make-believe celebrities and water carriers for insiders, developers, and grifters.
Focus on policing those parts of the city with the highest crime statistics and demand cooperation from the 'leaders" of those neighborhoods. If they're not interested, push them out of the way and do what needs to be done to protest society.
Public safety is the highest responsibility of any level of government.
Get rid of the multi-million dollar bills of taxpayer-supported fake nonprofits like Aim4Peace, NoVa, ad Hoc, and all the rest, and use the savings to hire more cops.
The guns that are used in incidents like the Crossroads tragedy are mostly obtained illegally, owned by under-aged thugs or convicted felons, or stolen.
Sweep the 65-or-so-block area where most of the KCMO homicides take place and confiscate illegal weapons.
And, again, either "the community", which is to say a minority of a minority portion of the city's residents, is either a part of the efforts to solve the problem, or it IS the problem.
At least that much will become even clearer than it already is.
Do Lucas or any of the council have the guts to even consider this?
Not likely.

TKC QUESTION: HOW CAN WE MAKE KANSAS CITY FIRST FRIDAY SAFE AGAIN?!?

Actually, how about, all of Kansas City safe again?

Well, the 1st thing you have to do if you're a policy maker is to pull your head out of your ass.

Look at the KCPD violent crime data for years and years, and understand that the problem is young black males and their culture of violence. Not all young black males, but that's the demographic where the emphasis needs to be.

If you think I just made a racist statement, and not a factual statement, you have your head up your ass and can't begin to solve this problem.

It's like the person who hates getting wet on rainy days, but refuses to get a rain jacket or umbrella! Maybe you just like to complain and don't mind getting wet.

As for the 1st Friday shooting- terrible tragedy. A low minded ghetto culture with some kind of bizarre and stupid faux honor / code duello machismo mindset + ready access to handguns is to blame.

As for the mass killings in El Paso and Ohio ... madness is on the rise ... + read access to handguns is to blame.

Is this one of the ways America is “exceptional “????

Thanks,

JUST THE FACTS MA'AM

18th and Main, KCMO, is 15 miles (as the crow flies) from Leawood's United Methodist Church of the Resurrection.

Troost is less than a mile East from 18th and Main.

Too many polite suburbanites falsely assume that everyone obeys the same rules of civil society.

Even during daylight hours, you need to avoid certain locations. After dark, you should stay in your own local neighborhoods and avoid the "urban" core.

Gun control, starting with re-implementing the assault weapons ban passed under Clinton and reversed under Bush. Universal background checks, which passed the House months ago and sits on Moscow Mitch's desk now.

Gun control doesn't violate the second amendment which applies to a "well regulated militia". No amendment in the bill of rights is absolute.

The GOP has blood on their hands for blocking everything for over a decade which has seen the levels of gun violence explode.

Kick Trump out of the White House since he radicalized the El Paso shooter through his racist rhetoric on the loudest white nationalist account on twitter. Trump also radicalized the Florida pipe bomber into action with his rallies and twitter.

Trump has violated his constitutional oath to protect the country and is a clear and present danger to Americans. Notice no one from the White House is speaking today. They can not defend him or his actions.

This is not a Trump-induced madness, and those who try and lay it at his feet are only applying the ideological tactic of never letting a tragedy go to waste. All I've heard since yesterday are partisan talking points.

This is a culture problem, not a gun problem. But, since identifying all the possible causes that lead to mass murder would often be politically incorrect, there is no real discussion.

If the El Paso and Dayton shootings were Trump's fault, then I guess all the following were the fault of Bill Clinton, George Bush, and Barack Obama.

Oddly, I heard very few people blaming the occupant of the Oval Office when these slayings occurred.

Yes, I said none of the amendments in the bill of rights is absolute.

The first amendment doesn't protect yelling fire in a crowded theater. Public safety is always a limiting factor to the protection or extension of rights.

We don't have to change the second amendment to introduce new gun control. Show me where it says hunting is a protected right. Show me where even self defense or protection of property is a protected right. I'll save you the time. It doesn't. The second amendment is there to provide for a "well regulated militia" necessary to secure a free state. That's it.

@2:34 Okay . . . I'll show you

Go read the Supreme Court decision in District of Columbia vs. Heller. Though you may not like it, that is the current law of the land.

Here's the gist from Wikipedia if you prefer the condensed version.

"District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008),[1] is a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected with service in a militia, for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home, and that the District of Columbia's handgun ban and requirement that lawfully owned rifles and shotguns be kept "unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock" violated this guarantee. It also stated that the right to bear arms is not unlimited and that guns and gun ownership would continue to be regulated. It was the first Supreme Court case to decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense or if the right was intended for state militias.[2]"

The city won't release a "murder map" showing killings in the downtown KCMO area for periods 10 yrs, 20 yr, 50 year, and 100 yrs. If it did you would see multiple murders locations on every street. Cemeteries are FILLED with bodies of people murdered in crossroads area, downtown area, plaza area, power and light district. Every sidewalk you walk on in the cross roads was once the location of a corpse laying there, murdered. Just because the city, developers, downtown business leaders want to pretend the area is safe doesn't mean it is. Stupid young girls from Johnson County are moving to the high rise apartments in the P&L district. They are fresh meat for rapists that will not use a condom and leave them with STD's or just kill them. Wealthy young Joco kids should NOT move downtown. If the business leaders of Kansas City (Like DST and Hallmark) cared about the safety of staff, they would have moved offices to south overland park decades ago. But the tax incentives and breaks cause their stock value and profits to go up- making them more wealthy.

Thanks for agreeing that the bill of rights doesn't state the right to bear arms extends to everyone. The language only covers a well regulated militia.

Now, I'll see your 2008 single wrongly decided 5-4 court decision and raise you a supreme court justice citing 175 years of legal precedent. A single case like Heller, especially one contradicting all previous decisions, does not make for "settled" law.

"Throughout most of American history there was no federal objection to laws regulating the civilian use of firearms. When I joined the Supreme Court in 1975, both state and federal judges accepted the Court’s unanimous decision in United States v. Miller as having established that the Second Amendment’s protection of the right to bear arms was possessed only by members of the militia and applied only to weapons used by the militia."

Until Heller, the invalidity of Second Amendment–based objections to firearms regulations had been uncontroversial. The first two federal laws directly restricting the civilian use and possession of firearms—the 1927 act prohibiting mail delivery of handguns and the 1934 act prohibiting the possession of sawed-off shotguns and machine guns—were enacted over minor Second Amendment objections that were dismissed by the vast majority of legislators participating in the debates. After reviewing many of the same sources that are discussed at greater length by Scalia in his majority opinion in Heller, the Miller Court unanimously concluded that the Second Amendment did not apply to the possession of a firearm that did not have “some relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia.” And in 1980, in a footnote to an opinion upholding a conviction for receipt of a firearm, the Court effectively affirmed Miller, writing: “[T]he Second Amendment guarantees no right to keep and bear a firearm that does not have ‘some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia.’”

So well settled was the issue that, speaking on the PBS NewsHour in 1991, the retired Chief Justice Warren Burger described the National Rifle Association’s lobbying in support of an expansive interpretation of the Second Amendment in these terms: “One of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American public by special-interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime.”

And even if there were some merit to the legal arguments advanced in the Heller case, all could foresee the negative consequences of the decision, which should have provided my colleagues with the justification needed to apply stare decisis to Miller. At a minimum, it should have given them greater pause before announcing such a radical change in the law that would greatly tie the hands of state and national lawmakers endeavoring to find solutions to the gun problem in America. Their twin failure—first, the misreading of the intended meaning of the Second Amendment, and second, the failure to respect settled precedent—represents the worst self-inflicted wound in the Court’s history.

Most gun violence - and mass shootings - happen in inner city ghettos. They don't usually involve white people, so they're not reported. Amongst whites, mass shootings are rare and thus newsworthy, in black and Hispanic ghettos, with significant gang presence, they're common and not newsworthy, unless white people are victims. And having lived in a black community for a year - Over the Rhine in Cincinnati, controlled by the Crips - illegally-obtained guns, from pistols to automatic weapons, are commonplace. You can safely assume that any male above the age of 13 is carrying a gun. They get the weapons from police departments with gang infiltration, from military units with gang infiltration, from theft, or from drug cartels. To stop the gun violence in these places, you'd have to round up every gang member and do house-to-house searches - and you'd probably have to call in the Army to do it, and you can bet there'd be some pretty heavy resistance. Currently you can get full-auto rifles on the streets of South LA for half of what it costs for a legal AR-15. To stop that, you have to control the borders, and frankly, you'd have to send the US Army into Northern Mexico to wipe out the cartels. As for police and military infiltration, that's a tough problem - you might have to go full racist to stop that - and that's not going to happen.

As for white mass shooters, the great majority suffer from severe untreated mental illness. There's a profile - they're socially isolated, they play violent first-person shooter video games, and they're incels. A significant number suffer from autism. We've stopped doing significant mental health intervention about five years before this phenomenon started, because insurance companies won't pay for it, and there's no societal will to do anything about it. That must change, if the shooters were hospitalized or in controlled/structured environments, we might not have this kind of problem.

Democrats are responsible for hatred and vitriol that promotes violence.
They asked for no “name-calling” at a recent Republican event.
Then they have their debate and call a sitting president: Rapist, bully, molester, racist, etc.
Of course the mainstreamless media didn’t notice or call the hypocrisy. Pure hatred.
They media and Democrats are complicit with violence and since poverty is part of this- they continue to ply the poor with food stamps and no way to hold them accountable by making better paying jobs and higher wages.
President Donald Trump has brought more jobs to blacks than any president ever since Republicans freed the slaves.
Democrats are the worse scourge ever- followed by the complicit media.
Watch for a National program to reduce violence during Trump’s 2nd and possibly 3rd term.

While the First Amendment is not absolute, it is nearly so. The exception is when the speaker intends to and has the actual capacity to provoke others to lawless action, such as a riot. It does NOT include yelling fire falsely in a theater.

A few years back, a Brit expat writer named John Derbyshire wrote in a published article that he advised his teenage children to leave an entertainment venue if blacks started arriving in large numbers. For that, he was fired by his publisher. But he was right then, and most people knew it, and even more know it now.

Byron -- if it had been a black or a brown person---

The Main Stream Media would have spent the last 24 hours talking about 400 years of slavery and "White Privilege".

The "Manifesto" - is the truth.

White people ARE being replaced and at this point, white boys are --- Like the Black Panthers, Like La Raza - like all ethnic minorities are going to fight back.

It's not like - YOU DUMB FUCK - I have not been predicting this EXACT FUCKING THING for two years, you - again DUMB FUCK.

America HATES white people and "Deplorables".

God Bless White People and God Bless the 2nd Amendment.

First Friday? It was her last Friday. Sadly.

We can end gun violence. But nobody wants to spend the time or $. If we proactively spent a dollar amount equal to the amount used to buy pet food in the USA each year, gun violence would be solved this year. Build many huge prisons. Give all shooter life sentences automatically. Million dollar mandatory fines for shooters (or their surviving families), stripping shooters (or their survivors of any future social security benefits), imprisoning parents for life if the shooters are under the legal age. Life in prison for any gun dealers illegally selling guns that end up used in a mass shooting. No guns for anyone ever convicted of any type of violent crime, even a very small one. Free continuous gun training for any law abiding citizens that wish to CCW. All CCW holsters and equipment 100% tax deductable, built many huge sanitariams for those that might be dangerous in the future. Make executions public, in a public place as they did in merry old England as a deterent. Of course we are too "politically correct" and wimpy to do any of that. So the killing shall continue long past the date any of you pass away. Good luck to you all!

5:40 The bad look around here dude is a rat like you, you and bLIEron are both racist hate filled lyin cheatin bastards. Go back to mommies basement snowflake.

Is your socialist democrat convention over already comrade?

Anonymous said...

Here’s what 5:40 left out, as usual his kind can’t tell the truth. Nothing like lying to fit his own sick narrative.

Law Enforcement, as Dr. Evans has noted, is now a gelded and crippled organ in a dying patient.

In some form, in the not too distant future, it is not hard to imagine outraged citizens taking the law into their own hands and culling the filth out of the streets.

The rat infestations in Los Angeles, Baltimore, New York and other cities are a metaphor for the human vermin that also, must, at some point, be eliminated with extreme prejudice from the streets, where they infest law abiding citizens with Bubonic Plague and chaos.

Violence is the ONLY thing that these sub human parasites understand.

I am with a disability and welfare cheat (read: steals from the government and me as a taxpayer) who has infiltrated our local blog and won’t go away. And he’s racist and while he’s not necessarily a terrorist he’s stupid as hell.

Anonymous said...

Excellent point.
Trump hasn’t “radicalized” anyone. The “manifesto” in El Paso hasn’t been authenticated. People do evil, brutal things no matter who is president as proven by your list.

Anonymous said...

Byron, you’ve got nothing if not nerve.
You who cheat the taxpayers out of disability and welfare payments so you can sit home and avoid working while slinging names at others, have a lot of nerve. You throw the term racist around (as well as terrorist and misogynist) so easily and often as to make them meaningless.
And I’ve got a news flash for you: putting the USA first is called nationalism. But guilty liberal apologists like you label it white nationalism in an attempt to make it a bad thing. It’s disgusting.

For myself and the millions like me who love this country and the people in it, respect its laws, work hard to support our families, give back to our communities, and do our best to be good people, we get really sick of people like you who denigrate our country nonstop. As well as our City.
How about you stay in your neck of the woods and keep your hate and your handouts there? We’ll stay here and keep loving our city and trying to fix its problems.

Byron is a lying thief. He would not say anything like he does on line in public. Willing to pay for his room, travel and board if he wants to visit KCMO soon. Come on Byron.

It is so easy to blame an inanimate object instead of asking, "why are people so angry in this country?"
I think the media should get a fair amount of blame for stirring up drama. They used to report the news but now they just make it up as they go along.

How odd that David Hogg and the Parkdale parents were in El Paso over the weekend.
