TKC IMPEACHMENT UPDATE FACT CHECK: PREZ TRUMP DENOUNCES CHICAGO AS 'EMBARRASSMENT' BUT KANSAS CITY PER CAPITA MURDER RATE IS WORSE!!!



Prez Trump is on the warpath against a major American city and the rhetorical battle has a KCMO connection.

Recent headlines as House Democrats Release Draft Resolution On Impeachment Inquiry:

AP: In Chicago, Trump calls the city an embarrassment to the US

CBS: President Trump Blasts Chicago Police Department Superintendent: ‘His Values To Me Are A Disgrace’

Now in terms of population percentages and murder per 100K residents . . .

DON'T FORGET THAT THE KANSAS CITY MURDER RATE IS WORSE THAN CHICAGO AS RECENT KILLINGS THREATEN A RECORD BREAKING YEAR FOR LOCAL HOMICIDE!!!

Here's the break down . . .



MONET: U.S. Attorney -- Kansas City has a higher murder rate than Chicago

Deet:

“The homicide rate in Chicago is the one that gets all the attention because, just the numbers are so great. Kansas City actually has a higher rate, not in pure numbers but in per capita basis, we have a higher murder rate than Chicago,” says U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri Tim Garrison.

He says federal prosecutors have worked with the Kansas City Police Department (KCPD) to identify a “targeted enforcement” area.

Here's even more data from the latest stats available . . . Patch published this back in June of 2019:

Kansas City's murder rate surpasses Chicago's

In 2016, Chicago's murder rate was 28.07 murders per 100,000 people, while Kansas City's rate was just under that at 26.79 murders per 100,000 people. This information could come as a surprise for people because many Americans look at the "flyover states" as safe and calm places to live.

In fact, 2017 data shows us that Kansas City is ahead of Chicago on the list of highest murder rates per 100,000 people. According to CBS News, Chicago was named the No. 10 deadliest U.S. city with 24 murders per 100,000 people while Kansas City was named the No. 7 deadliest U.S. city with 31.2 murders per 100,000 people. Based on the information from the article, Chicago's murder rate decreased by 14.5% from 2016 to 2017, while Kansas City's murder rate increased by 12.3 percent.

As of this writing Kansas City counts 122 murders, outpacing last year's homicide count and matching the nearly record breaking 2017 pace.

And so we ask our blog community tonight . . .

IF PREZ TRUMP SEYZ CHICAGO IS AN EMBARRASSMENT . . . WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT KANSAS CITY WHERE THE LEVEL OF KILLING IS PARALLELED?!?!

You decide . . .

Baltimore is even badder one of the commenters always says. You know, it's not a race to compete for murders. Hopefully we can get the numbers down before we get close to another murder record. It's sad to see crime decline in most parts of the nation while KC remains violent.

^^^^ It's the drugs and the gangs. KC loves to talk about vigils and anti-violence programs which are really just anti-gun programs but it's the crime that needs to be addressed not guns or poverty or social justice. Put the violent criminals in jail and the crime will decrease. Police will say the same thing, they're doing their part. Prosecutors, judges and juries are letting down the community.

In 2017 they were talking about bringing in the national guard to KC it was getting so bad during the summer. This year I don't think it has been as dramatic. There has just been a steady stream of killing throughout the year. Hope it slows down during the holidays. People need to chill!

Midtowner said...

Also there have been more killings in the suburbs also.

It's the guns stupid. If you aren't ready to do anything about the guns than you can't really complain about more violent crime. They go hand in hand, idiots.

Nope. Blax.

Before guns existed, millions of people were murdered. It just took a bit more time and had to be done up close in person. Take guns away - people will still murder. Knives are a huge murder tool in London where guns are non-existant. Young people killed by the dozens with any type of knife. How do you outlaw a knife?

what do you do, force manufacturers to chip guns like your pets & have to break the handle of the gun to get to it/can't scrap it off? besides making people report their stolen or missing guns, who will be responsible if a crime committed with it if they do not.

It’s got nothing to do with guns these fucking animals in the fifty’s were beating each other over the head with ball bats now they’ve got guns nothings changed. They’re all filthy stinking animals with low IQ’s. What do you morons expect civility out of these apes, they’re animals they should be treated as such

Fs in the chat said...

Don't I know it. We really need to educate all of these poor whites. They kill other poor whites at an alarming rate. Sad! Let's clean up Meth-dependence and get these fools the rehab they need!

Can we hurry up and get this idiot out of office?

Impeachment or vote, doesn't matter. JUST TIRED of his stupid face and dumb statements.

Here in KC, we can't hold a vigil candle to the killers in Baltimore. While the idiots down at UMKC are all drowning themselves in self loathing at the command of Michael Eric Dyson, THIS IS A FILM, BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE COPS IN BALTIMORE.

It sure as hell ain't the guns, it's the blacks.

More b.s. from haters. Please move to Cathage, Mo. You'll be happier there and so will we!

Anonymous said...

But I thought Trump was going to stop all of the murder on day one?

I guess that's another promise he didn't keep.

Just one more reason to vote him out.

I love KC said...

Our murder rate might be worse but I'll still take KC over Chicago. Any day. We have a much nicer city with a better life style and nicer people.

It's time for you creeps to stop badmouthing our city and realize you're really lucky to live some place as beautiful as Kansas City!

When you consider who most of the victims are, why stop it?

I love KC said...

^^^^ The losers on this blog are so sad.

Go stay up all night in your miserable lives, I'm going to go look at the skyline of this beautiful city and enjoy a local beverage while you losers are going to stay up bitter all night. Good luck with the wreckage that is your lives. More productive residents our KC will get up from work and contribute to making our town a better place even if you losers don't help anyone and are nothing but a constant drain on Kansas City while doing nothing complaining.

Get a life or LEAVE!, move somewhere else where you can be happy if you're so miserable here. Kansas City is a wonderful place and if you deny it, then you never really loved our city in the first place.

I like KC but I won't admit that there aren't problems we need to work TOGETHER to fix!

Byron Funkhouser said...

So, Trump went to Chicago to tell them that their city was an embarrassment?

He is an embarrassment. I bet the people of Chicago wish they had a Real President instead of this racist piece of shit.

LOCK HIM UP!

Anonymous said...

Nope. It’s blacks with guns. Dipshit.

Anonymous said...

You really are a dipshit. Look at the homicide stats for St. Louis. I’m pretty sure KCs stats with show that the same demographic is outnumbering whites 8 to one as homicide suspects.

One thing I’m sure Carthage doesn’t have is a disproportionate amount of crime caused mostly by blacks.

Grady said...

I see a lot of speculation and citing stats but no solutions. You want to help solve crime, join the police or run for office but people complaining on the Internet accomplishes nothing. I fought crime to day, I paid my bills and swept up my leaves! Are you doing your part?

Anonymous said...

Ya. Wonderful place. Some day it will be as glorious as Detroit.

Rue said...

If you love Carthage, Missouri so much. GO LIVE THERE AND GET OUT OF KC!

You would be happier, we would be happier. Go NOW! I will buy you a bus ticket so you can be on your way. Leave and never think about KC again. Don't ever look back but if you do, you might find that life goes on just fine without you.

Byron, YOU ought to be locked up for scamming the government out of disability benefits you don’t deserve, you big faker! You’re always screaming people are racist if they make a true statement about illegals, blacks, or whites. Well, not whites because you hate them, so anything negative about whites you agree with whether true or not.
Shut up, MYOB, and stay out of KC and TKC.

I like this comment so much on an earlier post that I am going to repost it because it kind of applies everything:

There is no point to prove. This is a none issue for critically thinking people. Can we put a period or some other punctuation to end this subject.

If it was to be calculated out. Each death of an inner city target saves the government and city services a bunch of money in the long run. Fire at will.

There is no denying it kc will be Detroit in 15 years.

The problem with younger ppl is they do not know how good it could be...how good it used to be. They have been brainwashed by tv and advertisements to believe a fantasy of diversity that does not actually exist.
