Kansas City Star Targets Officer-Involved Shooting Pricetag From Behind The Paywall

This morning's exposé from the newspaper isn't quite advocacy given their sketchy approach to an argument . . . IF we're going to talk about police shootings from a cost-analysis perspective . . . And we shouldn't. The KCPD gunfire STILL isn't nearly as expensive as so many corporate and developer freebies that City Hall gives away without more than a peep from the newspaper.

Nevertheless, here's a pathway to middle-class middling "journalism" that wins awards whilst losing circulation and subscribers:

One officer. Two shootings. $6.3 million in settlements paid by Kansas City police

In the early hours of Oct. 8, 2016, Kansas City police were alerted to a series of gunshots along the 3700 block of Wabash Avenue. The shots ended nearly a mile south, suggesting a shooter was on the move. When officers arrived near the spot where the last gunshot was detected, they shined a spotlight on a 2005 silver Mercury Sable.

Like the old wanted posters used to say, the dead guys are worth more dead than alive. A lot more.

9:52, such poor logic! A person does not have to be on TKC all day to know that you've commented 50 times (usually by noon). He can just check the blog one time, later, and count.

Great breaking news Star. The officer doesn’t even work for kcpd anymore. The city pisses away millions more than that yet they continue to pick on police and fire. Hardly any coverage of EMT killed by corona and I’m sure it’ll be the officers fault that was shot and killed

Once the Failing STAR sold it’s last shred of journalistic integrity to Bloomberg and Soros’ reporter placements, expect to see more and more of this type of social justice anti-constitution drivel.
