KANSAS CITY 2020 HOMICIDE #63 & #64: DEADLY TRIPLE SHOOTING STARTS CORONAVIRUS REOPEN WEEK!!!
Kansas City's comeback from a historic pandemic lockdown starts with a bang.
Last night we talked about the KCMO reopen mostly "celebrated" by way of rampant, deadly gunfire.
More to the point . . .
SADLY, RIGHT WING ACTIVISTS CONTINUE TO ACCURATELY ARGUE THAT THE RISING SPATE OF DEADLY LOCAL VIOLENCE HAS PROVEN MORE DEADLY THAN CORONAVIRUS SO FAR!!!
The punchline to that sentiment is that hardcore far right advocates don't really seem to have much empathy for ANYBODY suffering harsh times but that doesn't mean that can't do the math.
Sadly, this macabre game of political "Whataboutism" doesn't really help anybody. But that's kind of the point, it's only a trick to boost imagined social media "relevance" . . .
And so, the rate of of KCMO homicides continues to spike more than 20% over last year whilst locals play politics with their favorite numbers.
