ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri's governor says the state is in a "crisis" with violent crime. Republican Gov. Mike Parson on Tuesday met with Mayor Lyda Krewson and about a dozen other St. Louis-area leaders to address violence in the city. The officials didn't release any new plan but Parson says one will be announced soon.

Violence isn't a problem in Missouri.
It isn't even a problem in KCMO or St Louis.
It's a horrendous problem in particular easily-defined parts of both those cities.
But until those facts and the data-driven analysis of who the victims and perpetrators are are understood and accepted and anti-crime efforts are made taking those facts into account, nothing but endless talking, excuses, and blame will continue.
Willful ignorance.
It's a shame the regular folks in those neighborhoods who are just trying to earn a living and raise their families without being surrounded by carnage and destruction can't depend on local officials to assume the most basic of their responsibilities:
Public Safety.
