KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS HOPES FOR CHANGE AFTER ALL-TIME MURDER RECORD BROKEN IN 2020!!!

The last word of the day belongs to the top elected official in Kansas City who expressed his sympathies, offered inspirational words but didn't take any responsibility or offer even a hint of a plan that would change the outcome on this ongoing crisis. 

The info and context are appreciated and the Mayor is correct about the longstanding, deadly local dilemma. Still, some remark besides just "hope" might have been appropriate. 

In a social media statement, Mayor Quinton Lucas wrote . . .

"We have seen 100 murders in Kansas City during all but seven of the full 36 years of my life. Almost 4,000 Kansas Citians murdered since 1984; all gone too soon. Too many of our fathers, brothers, mothers, and sisters have had their lives cut short due to violence. Although the trends nationwide have increased in the past several years, our problem in Kansas City has been with us for generations.

"Change, however, can and must be made. Over recent decades, murder rates dropped in Richmond by 40 percent; Omaha by 50 percent; and New York City, by over 80 percent from 1990 to today.

"Saving young lives, black lives, and all lives has to be a central goal of what we do each day as a city. I am heartbroken, but I resolve that by working in prevention and intervention we do not have to bury thousands more of our brothers and sisters over the decades ahead due to violence. Each person we’ve lost in 2020 was special, and my heart goes out to their families, friends, and all in our community touched by the pain."

Hope in one hand, crap in the other.

See which one fills up first.

Actually, there was a hint of prevention and intervention.

That's something that Kansas City hasn't really committed to before. Might was well try it since what we're doing right now isn't working.

The mayor was elected by voters, none of you CHUDs have any stake in KC at all.

Bitches man, bitches.

Qball is in so far over his head that there is no lifeline that can help him. Only an eff’d up place like KC would have ever elected him in the first place. Oh well, you can’t have a skunk running the city then complain about the smell.

You mean, building a police station at 26th Wabash, throwing homeowners out on the street, and killing the elderly ones all for the sake of giving taxpayer cash to John Miles did not work in favor of the City to bring crime to an all time low?? idonbelieveit! What will the Black grifters think of next?

Blacks murdering each other is good for business if you are a black crime activist or reverand.

Don’t forget the funeral homes are making big bank off of all the murders, all state paid for of course. Gotta have dem gold caskets too!

Do something. Close the bars at 130 am.

Prevention? As in maximum sentences for violent crimes and eliminating the potential to commit more violent crimes? Doubtful that Jean Petersucker Baker or the liberal fag judges will agree to that. She prefers catch and release.

The other cities that Lucas mentioned reduced their homicide rates by ACTUALLY ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM.
Which is the fact that the vast majority of murders are committed by a small minority of a minority community.
Law enforcement flooding high-crime parts of the city.
Stop and frisk.
Doubling police coverage on late night shifts.
Of course, the same people, like Lucas, who give big speeches about how concerned they are about all the homicides are the first to scream racism, profiling, police brutality, and all the rest.
In KCMO the names of these "leaders" and the nonprofits that waste millions is very well known.
And Lucas has already identified himself with these very people.
More empty rhetoric from the emptiest of suits.
Sad.

This mayor has completely failed the black community by not calling them out for their behaviors, hell, it sounds like he’s been encouraging them to be destructive and murderous.

It is all whitey’s fault. And the NRA’s. The people who actually commit the murders and the assaults and the thefts and the drug-dealing just need interventions. How is that for a Q-ball impersonation.

The mayor needs to do his homework. NYC's homicide rate shot up 40% from this time last year. NYC also has a Democrat mayor and defunded the police. Sound familiar?
