Kansas City Star Blames Police For 2020 Historic Pandemic Homicide Spike

Crime experts note a variety of multi-faceted factors for the escalation of violent across the nation. From political & economic turmoil to a decline in mental health resources and fewer options for victims of domestic violence . . . There's never any simple, practical answer to the ongoing American crime crisis. Most reasonable thinkers understand that complexity of rising crime that has plagued the nation and nearly every city in the metro. 

Sadly, the newspaper was content to simply blame police based on chatter during a focus group. 

Thankfully, the Sunday story was safely hidden behind the paywall and we post it simply for filler whilst working on more productive aspects of the discourse . . . Or at least something more interesting than re-blogging a bunch of social media hateration.

What is driving gun violence in KC? The community answer: Lack of trust in police

In a year when Kansas City has set an all-time record for homicides, many Black residents say the problem is they can't trust the police. Barbara J.K. Johnson was still in her Easter clothes when she ran out to her yard where a 14-year-old neighborhood boy lay on the ground, bleeding from a gunshot wound.

MIC DROP: Dr. Scott Atlas’ 1st tweet after Twitter locked his account for sharing article debunking draconian COVID restrictions is perfection

"The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth."

George Orwell, 1984

Of course! It has nothing to do with violent blacks!

If this is the Star's first installment in its self touted gun violence series, expect no surprises and no original thinking. Blacks shooting each other is the police department's fault. Blacks shooting each other is caused by not enough gun control. Blacks shooting each other is the result of systemic racism. Blacks shooting each other is due to inequity in all aspects of society.

The series will be so banal that it might just qualify for a Pulitzer.

I'm actually for you idiots defunding the police, watching them quit and walk away and then kicking back watching the aftermath purely as entertainment. Burn it, loot it, shoot it or whatever. Since I no longer live there this is better than watching COPS. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

^^and yet you continue to read it and then discuss it. The Star wins. Again. Weird.

Twitter is a publicly traded company (NYSE: TWTR), not the state/party. That Atlas guy doesn't seem to bright, just like his fan with the trans am symbol.

Gov. Cuomo was just caught red handed and recorded saying they are using the fear factor with the virus. Check it out Next News Network youtube.

So let me get this straight, the blacks don’t trust the police so they go out and murder each other? Do I have that right according to what the commie red star says?

Hope the BLM / ANTIFA protesters burn and loot the Star before the Star goes bankrupt.

Glad the Kansas City Star employees are going to lose their pensions.

Fucking Communists.

Blaming the police for the Communist China virus is absolutely idiotic and shows how deranged Marxist Democrats have become.

Might as well shut down the Journalist Public University schools as they have no ethics, no honesty and no journalistic integrity.

Why should taxpayers fund public university journalism schools when the Professors teach hatred towards American and Communism.

Let the Communist Professors get real jobs or move to Communist China who will lock them up like they do all journalists.

Whenever there is a disease, you not only treat the symptoms but you must also determine the cause and a develop a vaccine.

The unethical Anti-American, pro-Communist journalism originates in public universities.

State Legislatures need to discontinue using taxpayer funds to support foreign corruption that permeates today's public universities. Follow the money in their Foundations.

Anonymous said...

The University of Missouri and University of Kansas Journalism Schools are both public, tax-payer funded universities.

The State Legislatures need to pull taxpayer funds out of these universities as the College Professors are Communists and are spreading hatred against America and working class Americans.

The Star wouldn't know journalism if it came up and bit them in their liberal asses. No one reads the rag any longer. That's why they went bankrupt. A business plan including alienating about half of your potential subscribers by being extremely illogical (more proof of that is this story) means people think they're reading communist propaganda instead of an American newspaper.

^^^ China and other foreign countries have given colleges over ten billion dollars over the last decade so....

To think Parents and Taxpayers are shelling out $100,000 per college student for Communist Professors to "re-educate" young people in their publicly funded re-education camps. Truly sad.

Privatize Higher Education. Quit subsidizing anarchy with taxpayer funds.

And don’t forget the commie red star still only exists because the mayor is using taxpayer money to keep it afloat, that’s how sLIE and lickass keep getting what they want printed in the paper. You can tell the difference of who’s mayor and what their priorities are by what they write, with sLIE it was constant articles about the airport and downtown subsidies needed to build downtown, now with mayor mcdumbo its all about whitey being racist, blm and antifa being heroes and the popo need to be thrown in jail.

Don’t tell me who’s priorities are and aren’t being printed in the paper depending on what the mayor wants and doesn’t want. The evidence is clear who’s pushing who’s agenda.

When you read the free shit, you fund that "commie rag," Bandit.

So they're laughing at you, essentially.

As are we all.

Perhaps if we employed more social workers, the niggers would commit less murders.

^^Ha!! Bless poor old Bandit's heart! He just tries to come on here and be snarky, but he always flops on his face. That special-needs bastard is one one of the blog's biggest punching bags. Always good to see him get run!

The only people who can stop black on black crime are black folks. Yes, racism, poverty, discrimination and poot police relationships contribute to the culture of violence... but solutions can only come from within the black community.

Most of us whíte adults have many friends, of many different races, and aren't racist. But the second we point óut that we have black friends to those accusíng us of being racist, we only provide more accusations that we are, indeed, racist.
Now both COVID and black on black murders are the fault of the police? Whatever.
I think the thing to do is to treat blacks like they aren't there. Don't try to help them, and don't try to hinder them. Just let them take care of themselves.
Now I'll be called a racist, but there is no way to defend myself.

I believe the assaults,shooting, and murders have gone up because of the 3am bar closing. 130am was responsible and there were fewer drunks out until 4-5am. Especially since the gun laws changed. Sure they being responsible and leaving the guns in the car. It seems like they just go outside and get them after they are intoxicated. Then it’s too late.

cameras for each officer in early 2021? if so, and assuming recordings can be shown publicly in the future, everyone one will be able to draw their own conclusions to who was wrong and who was right during the difficult to explain/understand police encounters. from just reading the article i sense a communication problem between cops and the public.

if possible, have a kcmo officer or two write their own articles of how it really is - i'm only able to read one half of the story from here.

its easier to blame the police than look in the mirror.

11:35 I enjoy Bandits take, makes things interesting. YOU on the other hand only criticize and have nothing of interest to say. Jealous, maybe? We can all do without your hating on the Bandit.

Sociologists have a term for what is driving murders in KC, violent subcultures.

Anonymous said...

@3:08 PM Yes, I agree about 1135, same guy with the same MO, has done several times before, Today as always complimenting his own comment (1118). His method and sentence structure gives him away everytime. Moron is fixated on Bandit.

@3:12 I have to keep reminding the racist part of my brain that there are decent black people, it is the violent subcultures that stain their race and all those who enable them are complicit.

Maybe some of the hundreds that have loss their jobs from the red star can help BLM paint red Xs in the street near each murder. That will keep them busier than printing a dead pinko newspaper.

If this is true, they are even more stupid than I gave them credit for, which is pretty damn stupid. Cops solve murder after murder WITHOUT any help from the victims' families & witnesses. Imagine what they could do if these people HELPED. It's not the cops who are killing people, it's the people hating the cops.
