It seems that a suspicious death on the south side was ruled a homicide this morning given the latest edition to the tragic Kansas City murder count.
To wit . . .
THE KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE TOTAL NOW STANDS AT 146 AND OCTOBER WILL SEE THIS COWTOWN BREAK AN ALL-TIME MURDER RECORD!!!
The latest local killing was documented just moments after a mostly useless anti-crime push wherein the only thing participants could agree on was a misplaced disdain for police. To be fair, the po-po torpedoed the event earlier that day given far more pressing budget concerns that could eliminate 400 jobs from the KCPD in the midst of this historic crime spike.
Accordingly, the murder count at 146 represents 28.07% uptick in killing over last year when there were only 119 homicides documented at this date on the calender.
Right now KCMO is only 8 murders away from breaking an ominous record.
Sadly, campaign 2020 politics represent a much bigger priority to locals and our suburban neighbors only use this primarily urban stat to gloat at the demise of a "Democrat-run city" whilst ignoring the steadily growing rates of violence and deadly crime in their own backyards. Meanwhile the ongoing culture war provides a distraction from most local concerns as the threat of more civil unrest, another round of the pandemic and a post-election nightmare loom over the entire nation.
