Kansas City 2020 Homicide #50: One Dead After Triple Shooting Saturday
An UPDATE and roundup regarding the worsening quotient of Kansas City violence despite the pandemic lockdown.
KANSAS CITY NOW COUNTS KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE #50 AFTER A HORRIFIC SPATE OF GUNFIRE TODAY!!!
As some of the smarter friends of the blog and commenters continue to suggest, rising violence in the metro during the lockdown doesn't bode well for the "new normal" and increased restrictions and movements that many believe will emerge during the reopen and continue until there's a vaccine . . . And probably long after. Sad to remind readers but governments relinquishing power rarely happens without massive upheaval.
For now, here's the roundup of news regarding today's massacre:
