TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! BEHIND THE SCENES AUTHORITIES GRAPPLE WITH DEADLY KANSAS CITY DRUG WAR UNDERWAY!!!
Most Kansas City journalists have already forgotten that earlier this year federal authorities warned locals that drug dealers have set up shop throughout the metro.
"The DEA special agent in charge said feeding the demand for drugs in Johnson County goes well beyond teenage drug dealers . . . The cartels really are living here in Johnson County."
Accordingly, what we've seen over the the course of 2019 is escalating violence in Kansas City that is largely powered by the drug trade.
The cover stories provided by law enforcement mostly focus on their success in locking up and convicting suspects but the scope of the problem is global and rooted in an illicit international trade which persists despite the best efforts of police and the Feds.
Blame illegal immigration or the insatiable American appetite for illegal drugs . . . It doesn't matter because neither political debate will have much impact on deadly trade that has claimed a growing number of lives.
In the meantime, Kansas City "news" can pretend that deadly shootings stem from barroom disputes whilst video evidence shows us killers stalking their victims with workman like precision in what are obviously calculated moves. The end result is the same. All of it contributes to a growing level of brutality and violence throughout the metro area.
Make no mistake . . .
A RISING LEVEL OF KANSAS CITY MURDERS ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF DRUG TRADE RIVALRY!!!
The KCPD Chief clumsily attempted to make this same argument but his advocacy confused the idea of "reefer madness" with more relevant drug gang disputes mostly over money.
And so, as locals bury victims of a conflict that's largely unnamed, the only thing we can be sure of is that continued disputes over illegal drugs and money will claim lives among both the innocent and those more closely connected to the deadly business.
