Could Mentoring Keep Kansas City Safe?!?!

Another strategy that asks communities to protect themselves and the future, here's the pitch and news of a bit of community followup carried by a paper across the state . . . Checkit:

Local Cause Artist has a message for KC - in the wake of the recent shooting near Power & Light and the Crossroads that left three well respected people dead - urging adults to become mentors for the youth.

KANSAS CITY, MO, September 2, 2019 - Chesley 'Blayza' Lunt Jr., came from a troubled past. The foundation that his family and mentors laid before him, often averted him from the temptation of the street life. He credits those that influenced him as being the guiding voice that helped shape his path to helping others.

Mentoring youth by adults is more commonly known as parenting.

An interesting study would be the parenting or lack of involving the murder suspects. That of course if they ever catch one.

How about jails and prisons and getting a real prosecutor instead of Jean Petersucker Baker. These might prevent future crimes. It is hard to commit crimes while in prison for a prior crime.

It's not our job to mentor someone else's kid. Mentor the parents or take the kids away, get rid of the judges that put these kids back out on the streets. Hard time is the way to go.

^^^ No fair to Chimpy to say he "doesn't know who his father was", his Mother is pretty sure it was one of the twelve guys at the Party she was invited to that night. At least that's something.

Come on, Chimpy, dance for us some more, the day's still young!
