KANSAS CITY 2020 HOMICIDE #78: POLICE INVESTIGATE VICTIM SHOT DEAD DURING ROBBERY!!! LOCAL KILLING SPIKES 34%!!!
A Sunday murder speaks to the growing level of crime in Kansas City, Missouri that's reaching record-breaking proportions.
Even worse, in a few recent conversations with TOP-ECHELON INSIDERS we're getting a peek at how local power players see this issue playing out over the course of 2020.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY LEADERS PREP FOR DEADLY SUMMER AND NEW MURDER RECORD!!!
Here's the world . . .
"Of course we're going to break the homicide record this year. Technically, Summer hasn't even started and homicides are out of control. And while there's a lot of debate about the effects of "de-policing" I don't think it's unfair to realize that a lot of cops might be disheartened with the entire nation AND Kansas City's youth basically marching in the streets against them. Police are going to do their jobs, they always have . . . Even with all the protesting I notice that most people in KCMO realize they depend on law enforcement. But the reforms are going to have an impact. Already, a lot of activists are spinning the high murder count as another reason local control is a necessity. Meanwhile, economic hardship after the stimulus is scaled back will likely get worse and we're going to see more desperation in around the city."
For now, we count the latest killing that brings the homicide count to 78 compared to 58 at this time last year for a spike of more than 34% . . .
