TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! WORSENING MEXICAN DRUG WAR THREATENS KANSAS CITY!!!
Recently, drug gangs South of the Border and El Chapo's son beat the Mexican military in a shoot out and troops were forced to surrender, hand over their prisoner and retreat.
Locally, our blog community has been talking about the rising local power of drug gangs for a couple of years and what we've seen on KC streets is now reveals our FIRST WORD as news fact.
To wit . . .
THE MEXICAN DRUG WAR IS GETTING WORSE AND THREATENS KANSAS CITY MORE THAN LOCAL AUTHORITIES ARE ALLOWED TO ADMIT PUBLICLY!!!
Here's yet another confirmation and follow-up . . .
KCTV5: Recent KC meth bust tied to drug cartels in Mexico
"The suspect in a recent case told officers the people he works for would kill him if he was deported back to Mexico and he’d rather die in the US because at least he’d get a funeral. It’s unclear which cartel that suspect is tied to . . . An official for Jackson County’s Drug Trafficking Task Force says several of WORKERS FOR THE CARTELS operate in the Kansas City metro. They all have a gentleman’s agreement to get along but south of the border, there’s currently a violent struggle for power and drug routes into the US."
Let's not forget that earlier this year a DEA special agent warned the cartels were operating in Johnson County.
And then . . . In the Summer, the Feds broke up a heroin smuggling operation from Mexico thru Kansas City that was far more determined and profitable than The Caravan.
The political component of coping with a NEARLY FAILED STATE RIGHT NEXT DOOR can be seen from both a progressive and conservative vantage.
The fight against drug cartels confirms the fears of immigration hawks and Prez Trump MAGA supporters who hope to "build the wall" in order to try and keep out danger, gangs and violent criminals.
Progressives view refugees fleeing these desperate circumstances more compassionately and work toward comprehensive immigration reform to humanely cope with many innocent victims and children caught up in the violence.

Accordingly . . .
We can debate the tactics to cope with the impact of Mexican drug war spillover but denying the ripple of violence on Kansas City streets only threatens to make the rising tide of violence worse as more drugs and blood flow on local streets.
