Saw a comment earlier about how we're really at 124 murders. Hope that the incoming cold can keep that number down.

^^^^^ Amen.

A tough and early winter is probably the best hope we have of keeping more people alive given that Kansas City "leaders" don't seems to have a plan to address the situation. Just more press conferences and conversation.

Hire more police and double the coverage in the sixty square block area of the urban core where the vast majority of the murders take place.
Officers in East Patrol currently race from one call to the next, particularly between midnight and daybreak.
Stop and frisk and confiscate illegal weapons found.
But first, the "leaders" have to have the guts to actually accurately define the problem and stop the superficial nonsense of making believe that the KCMO violence is a state-wide or even a city-wide issue and offering irrelevant "proposals" like taking guns from "teens".
Almost 90% of the homicide victims in KCMO are black and the percentage of perpetrators is at least as high.
The problem is a small minority of a minority population.
Reducing the murders in that specific area would reduce KCMO homicides almost one-for-one.
Fewer tweets and more guts would be a good start.
