Lucas walking around a neighborhood reminds me that Sly made a big announcement that he was going to be on the scene of every homicide.
That lasted about a long as it took for him to discover that that meant he'd have to make at least ten visits a month and that the media quickly lost interest, so there soon were no cameras.
Lucas's empty gesture has about as much significance or result.
It never ceases to amaze how many worthless new "programs", empty PR events, grandiose announcements, and fake anti-crime "nonprofits" these folks can up with to prevent them from publicly acknowledging the actual source and cause of the horrendous murder rate in KCMO.
A continued dance of death and willful ignorance.

I hope Trump goes down fighting in the White House. Like Hitler in Berlin. (And no, Hitler came out fighting with a Lugar in each hand but it was covered up.)

Sucas loves the walks doesn't he? He knows this will do nothing but it's cheap and idiots will look at him and thinks he's doing something and he's not.

Pat Mahomes is a real loser too. Does anyone know how foundations work and what they are all about? This son of a bitch acts like he's all into racial equality and the opposite is true. He's using racial equality to cash in and get even more wealthy. Wise up to this Piece of crap.

When is Lucas going to schedule a "walk-around" in similar parts of the city for, say, around 2:30am?
He's not likely to learn much followed by a crowd and the clueless media.
All entertainment, all the time!
Meanwhile, the homicides continue unabated.
