Haven't we been through this before with the KCPD? Lets start cracking the whip instead of talking. This crap has gone far enough and I'm sick of everyone acting like a big puss. Start standing up to the criminals it's obvious talking and getting to know each other is NOT WORKING. This trust thing is BS just another way to cry racism. KNOCK THIS SHIT OFF SICK OF IT.

Stalin had a great idea. After WWII every German male over the age of 14 would be shot in the back of the head. It would prevent another generation of war starters. The only reason Germany did not re-arm and start WWIII in the 1950's is because we had nukes, they didnt. Read the history of Germany. The Germanic tribes of people caused many wars in Europe over many centuries. I am proud my Father shot dead 10 German soldiers with his General Motors built .45 cal "grease gun". Hope those soldiers burning in hell remember my Dad's face!

Unless 30+ bangers showed up at the "community outreach" event and turned in their dozens of guns, it didn't amount to squat.
Let another comment pointed out, when will KCMO ever get serious, honestly define the violence and homicide problem, and have the guts to do something about it?
Willful ignorance.
