crime will keep on growing because there's no plan to stop it. Just a bunch of complaining until the next contract or stimulus arrives.

Double patrols in high-crime areas.
Stop and frisk.
Have a serious prosecutor who brings serious charges.
Have elected "leaders" in KCMO make some demands of "leaders" in "the community" to get a lot more cooperation with the police.
Discontinue funding all the make-believe "anti-crime" nonprofits and use the money for more cops.
And, of course, electeds at city hall actually making public safety a high priority, instead of empty speeches with no follow-up would certainly help.
That would be a good start.

Wouldn’t it be more effective to just send the ghetto residents to live in Africa? Our crime would be incredibly low.

Great suggestions. Reasonable and achievable. And, of course, dat be rayciss.

All offenders get caught eventually - some just take longer to catch.

A method for problem solving can be to talk about the subject first. Why the black man chooses to kill his own kind is puzzling to me - I'm white and can't or don't want to imagine the reasons.

Long ago I was told the world revolves around sex and money. Can these be reasons for killings?

7:22 we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place had white Southerners wanted to pay a living 250 years ago instead of enslaving people to work for free. This is the American curse and will never go away. All because some white guys didn't want to pay people to work their land. Come to think of it, sounds a lot like Republicans of today.

The government can't control the mind of someone with a gun. This is Kansas City, this is cowtown. People have been packing heat around here since before the civil war.

That is of course an oversimplification. Without coastal Africans selling their fellow Africans from the interior there could never have been a slave trade. Not to mention that African civilization (such as it was) was based on slavery, tribal war, and cannibalism.

Anyway, it's the Democratic party that continues to keep blacks on the plantation of cradle to grave entitlements without accountability. Just listen to Joe Biden. He feels like he owns blacks and made it clear yesterday.

I still believe past experiences lead to future endeavors - Will Biden change? Who knows or cares?

That was yesterday. Today is a different day - make it better.

"No because you white trash will pick up where we left off".

An example of me believing "past experiences lead to future endeavors".

Why would I, being white, want to help or even just slightly try to understand the black man's plight after reading your comment? I won't say unfortunate plight because you may like your present conditions.

I'm not a prejudiced person - I have no reason to be yet.

8:54 just because it happened in Egypt doesn't mean it should have happened here. There is only one group of people to blame for introducing a huge criminal element to America: Southern white men who didn't want to pay people to work, simple as that.

Yeah, we just talked about this. You do know that there is more to Africa than Egypt, right? I'm talking about the murderously savage interior of the continent, from which black slaves and warlords captured victims to sell. Surely they have a responsibility for selling their own.

Not to mention Northern whites! Part of the Triangle Trade landed in the north, and it couldn't have worked without their support.

Don't oversimplify history.
