Fact check and official word regarding a great deal of hyperbole on "many sides" of this federal law enforcement action . . .

The Department of Justice corrected that later. According to the U.S. attorney's office in Western Missouri, it has filed charges in one federal task force generated case.

Did you know that the top types of cases filed by the State Prosecutor in any given week are:

1. Possession or sale of Drugs (80%)
2. Fraud/Theft (9%)
3. Assault (5%)
4. Weapons (2%)
5. Murder (1%)
6. Burglary (1%)
7. DWI (1%)
8. Sex offenses (1%)

On any given week there are only about 60 cases filed by all the police departments in Jackson County. 60 in a metro with a million plus people and over 2000 police officers.

The crime problem is not our worst enemy, its officers, Prosecutors and Judges that are not solving crimes, not putting people in jail and not keeping people in jail.
