Kansas City Logic: 'Privileged' Drivers Deserve Robbery If Doors Are Unlocked?!?
A silly social media debate pits practicality against civic virtue as Kansas City middle-class neighborhoods confront a surge in car crime that has been mostly unreported by local media.
Accordingly, this statement has garnered a fire storm of reaction and merits inspection by TKC readers without the blood curses and stalking that usually accompany app-based debate.
Here's the word:
Dear privileged people,
It is not breaking into a car when you leave the doors unlocked! Lock your doors! Know your situation, and where you live. Let me know when they throw rocks through your window or steal your car, like when I lived on 16th and Lister. These people around here take money (coins). It’s kids or crackheads. Regardless, the problem can be solved with a push of a button.

To wit . . .
IS HE RIGHT??? ARE CARELESS KANSAS CITY PROPERTY OWNERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN VICTIMIZATION?!?!
The answer has bigger culture war implications for #MeToo, Immigration, CCW Gun Rights and possibly the great Taylor Swift Vs. Kanye debate . . .
You decide . . .
