Aftermath: Kansas City Plans To Curb Violence Inspire Little Confidence Amid Record Breaking Homicide Count

A recent murder milestone in Kansas City evoked a few earnest comments that didn't seem to convince locals that the downward death spiral will stop any time soon. 

To wit . . . 

KANSAS CITY REMAINS SKEPTICAL OF PROMISES TO CURB VIOLENCE IN THE MIDST OF THE WORST HOMICIDE SPIKE THIS COWTOWN HAS EVER WITNESSED!!!

Proof: Take a look at a recent statement from Mayor Lucas wherein the most spirited discussion focused on criticism of his administration.

One example & response out of many . . . 

"You've been talking and talking and posting and posting with lots of emotional rhetoric, but you never seem to come up with a plan. isn't your primary responsibility to keep citizens safe? considering those numbers, it was an issue when you came into office. so what have you done so far?"

Public asks for a plan . . .

"Everyday I hear you say we're working on a plan on the murders in KC then I wake up the next morning to see the news reporting a killing and new covid cases. KC now stands for Killings & Covid. It's getting worse everyday. What's the plan??"

A call for unity . . .

"Wonder if defunding the KCPD will help... You need to stand with the police and not against them. Without unity all around change will never happen all around." 

Given the death count, these questions are fair and so far we haven't heard an answer. 

Meanwhile, quotient of local violence continues to escalate and here's another round-up of the local milestone . . .

Crime Fight Needs Cash

Kansas City has been planning to curb violence for years now. What's Lucas's plan this time, knee pads for everyone who encounters violence?

Thanks, Tony, but I can read Facebook comments without you having to spin a few nutjobs into an epic screed about how you think everybody feels.

"Funding more crime initiatives." Actually crime initiatives fund themselves. That's the purpose of crime. Oh, do you mean funding more anti-crime initiatives? Like the anti-crime initiatives you're currently funding are working so well?

Only the black community can effectively address the black on black murder issue. Starts with accountability and ownership... and then working collaborative with others. Balloons and prayers don't get it!

Of course it does. Everything this administration touches needs to soak the taxpayers MORE. Every "Plan". Every "New plan". Escalades for everybody.

I'm a middle aged white guy (That's for info only. If I was black, same issues.).
I have a decent job and live in a modest lower middle class home (single car garage) North of the river, so my kids are lucky to attend the NKC schools. My neighbors keep their homes maintained and yards mowed and neat (with a few notable exceptions).

KC takes my etaxs, plus pretty high sales taxes. I'm trying to think of anything the city has done to improve, or even maintain, the infrastructure I frequent day to day.

I don't go to Westport, nor do most Kansas Citians. I used to visit the Plaza. No longer. I don't go to the 18th & Vine area, nor do most Kansas Citians.
My streets are in dire need of repair and have been for years. My water bills steadily rise. New city subsidized hotels, an un-needairport, Power & Light entertainment center, luxury downtown apartments and the street cars provide nothing to make the majority of KC residents lives one whit better.

Now, I have begun to worry about the violence getting too close to home amid talk of defunding our police. I have not handled a firearm since my service tours, but recently bought one. I can only conclude the folks that run this city could care less about the average citizen, except as a taxable herd to fleece time and again. They know the etax will again pass, due to the dependable apathy on the part of the public.

I am sick and tired of the continual focus on “improving” downtown. Who are we competing with and why. How about remaining a “cowtown” and a “nice place to live”.

OP, yep, every black male that has made the decision to ditch the democrat plantation and chosen to reap the bounty that America offers and moved into the middle class, think and behave just like every other male in the middle class. They worry about bills, taxes, kids, safety, keep their houses neat and clean. They don't want any part of the communist movement in the democrat party called BLM any more than we do. Unfortunately for them, for this they are ostracized from the black community, called uncle toms, house ni**** ALL FROM THE PEOPLE THAT PURPORT TO "HELP" OR "CARE" ABOUT THEM. How fvcked up is that? Talk about an island unto themselves. Black folk, hearken unto me. Democrats hate you, they just realize what a solid voting block they have in your community. Break away from the plantation actions they have forced on YOUR community for the last 50-60 years; destruction of the nuclear family, elimination of the black male role model, removal of the Church. Choose the way of the white lower-middle class conservative. Many say this way of life is mundane, bustin' hump to live paycheck to paycheck just to come home and play with your kids everyday, and maybe sneak in some lovin' with the missus at night. Mowing your yard while secretly making sure its nicer than the neighbors. No hard partying from days of youth, now just Sunday Church then BBQs with friends and neighbors. This is what conservativism offers you, but you have to want and embrace it for it to work. GL.
