83 murders and it's only early June.
Easily 170+ for 2020.
And not a peep from the revs, BLM, or all the other SJWs who are somehow so concerned about what happens elsewhere around the country.
With "leadership" and priorities like this, it's no wonder that KCMO has been heading down the toilet for years.
Bankruptcy next, just to put icing on the cake.
Sad.

Sounds like a really nice apartment complex.

Great landlord. He didn't evict her; even though she is dead.

They just blasted three more this afternoon at 27th and Jackson. One DOA. Didn't see any protesters at the scene, though. I just love this bullshit, hypocritical BLM movement.

In the U.S., nine unarmed black men were shot by police officers, while 20 unarmed white men were shot in 2019. Unarmed doesn't necessarily mean they weren't trying to take the officer's gun, or choke or beat them, so these figures might be skewed a bit. Yet, contrast those figures with about 7,000 black men killed in the U.S. by other black men. One category of deaths brings a lot of money to Kaepernick, the NACCP, BLM and other groups when it occurs, and the other category doesn't. Like most things in life, follow the money.
