If Quinton would look at and comprehend the KCPD’s data he would immediately know the who and what for KCMO’s homicide problem. The police already know the cause of the high homicide rate but do not want to directly say it. Everybody seems to be dancing around the cause of the high homicide rate.
Kansas City, Missouri is 55 percent white and 30 percent black. The Kansas City Police Department puts together one of the more thorough homicide analysis available in the entire nation on a yearly basis.
The 2019 KCPD Daily homicide analysis noting of 148 victims:
77 percent were black
18 percent were white
But what was astonishing about 2019, was the race of the suspects in these homicides: 91 are black, four are Hispanic and 12 are white. Stated another way this means, 88 percent of known homicide suspects in 55 percent white Kansas City, Missouri in 2019 were non-white.

This is something the Black racist Revs should be celebrating. Their constant meddling in politics and police business is yeilding these results. Clearly relocating police stations and throwing people out of their houses hasn’t worked. Oh well, on to the next scheme to siphon taxpayer resources to religious organizations who don’t deserve it nor do they have any influence whatsoever to stop it.

Better throw more money at it, more grants for the "crimefighters"

Murder and crime are big business for the reverends, their families and friends with kickback political donations to the council.

I am not suicidal.
