Legal moves and pious chatter about reduing Kansas City crime in 2020 has proven ineffective as this town has already recorded 20 murders to start this divisive presidential election year.

To wit . . .


The holidays are over, Valentine's Day love is now in the past and tempertures are starting to warm up.

Proposed crackdowns against guns and community outreach hasn't seemed to reduce local crime and upcoming marijuana "pardons" only threaten to worsen the divide betwixt local political leadership and law enforcement.

To worsen the situation, the topic of local control puts police at political odds with the overriding progressive sentiment among KCMO leadership who are only united in their opposition to Prez Trump.

And so, tonight we highlight recent crime news and pray for peace as Kansas City's most violent time of year is nearly underway.

As always, thank you for reading this week we hope to have more for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!


  1. T, outreach and pardons aren't really the solution. You are smart enough to realize that. The only real hope is the topic you write about almost every day.


    KC's only real chance of reducing violence is simply to move lower income people out of town and into the east suburbs. That has been the plan for some time, only now you're finally starting to see some progress.

    The new stadium is the best part and what should really increase the urban turnover.

    1. John Maynard Keynes2/16/20, 8:33 PM

      ^^^ great theory boomer. Did they teach that to you at the University of Chicago sometime in the 50s. That economic model of scarcity is stupid and it only comes from half educated creeps who can only pretend to be educated on the Internet. Smarter people know that bunk doesn't work in the real world.

    2. ^^^ +100 nice reference there my fellow econ major.

  2. This is why Leawood will always be nicer. Sorry biscuit eaters.

  3. Who cares. KC is lost, Detroit lite.

  4. Pretty simple Milly poofs, DONT spend what you can't pay.

  5. 8:58 Detroit is coming out of Bankruptcy, And the riverfront is ROCKING. KC, not so much.

  6. Kansas City has way more queers and homosexuals than Detroit That makes us a lot worse city than Detroit. Also, I don’t think Detroit has ever had a weak homosexual mayor to deal with.

    1. ^^^ you seem to think a lot about having sex with men. What do you think that says about you? Weird.


    Regarding KCMO Homicides
    According to actual statistics from the KCPD, what demographic is responsible for the great majority of both homicide victims and perpetrators? The answer is Black Males, age 17-30, and it's been that way for years.

    Leave the middle-aged and elderly people of all races alone. Leave the Asians and Latinos alone. Leave all White women alone. First control the young Black Males, then keep an eye on young White Males and young Black females.

    Gun control measures are predominately about stripping away people's rights, keeping them under government control, and perpetuating their status as societal victims.

    Mayor "Selfie Q" is a Liberal/Progressive SJW who never met his biological father, was raised in a dysfunctional family, afforded an excellent education thanks to a charitable White Institutional Racism, was all set up to live the good life on the East Coast, but returned to KC on a futile mission to play savior to those who never asked for his help.

    Pardoning marijuana convictions, "restorative justice" initiatives, "banning the box" legislation, revolving-door criminal justice DA's, probation for all but the most violent offenders, etc., are SOFT ON CRIME policies that further promote a culture void of personal responsibility.

    If KCMO is the only major city in the country without municipal control of their police force, and you believe that's a positive, what are the odds that all other cities are wrong?

    Are you also advocating that KCMO give up control of all municipal departments? Why is the KCPD so unique? And why is KCMO City Hall sitting on their hands, while every year the Fire and Police budgets grow like a metastatic cancer that is now on the verge of bankrupting the city?

  8. Mayor Lucas knew what the situation was when he ran for office. He obviously is incompetent. IMPPEACH LUCAS NOW!

  9. Didn't San Quentin Donald Ludicrous promise to disarm all of the wife beater in Kansas City, which was suppose to stop every Homicide for eternity? Perhaps he got too buys trying to get his face in front of another television camera, for self-glorification, and forgot what he promised to do. Or, perhaps he has no ability beyond running his do-little mouth. His first six money sucking months in office don't seem to have produced any worthwhile results.

  10. 20/20 the blacks are batting 100%.

    1. WIN! LOSE! VICTORY! DEFEAT! Is that what it's all about with you chuck? Constantly thinking your views superior above all others?

  12. 8:17 his views are definitely superior to your triggered responses, question, why does chucks truths trigger you so badly?

  13. Tells is like it is2/17/20, 10:04 AM

    Tells is like it is said...
    Removing Police management from the state, and placing it in the hands of the corrupt 12th & Oak crew would utterly destruct local law enforcement. Blaming cops for the high murder rate is nuts. Political reluctance simply refuses to come to grips with the stats in the previous comment. Bloomberg's Stop & Frisk worked before he caved to pc nonsense. Of course, being the prick he is, he now cries bullshit tears for his past sins.
