TKC QUESTION: SHOULD KANSAS CITY FEAR WORSENING COVID-19 MORE THAN HISTORIC 2020 HOMICIDE SPIKE?!?!

Tonight we stand at a crossroads with two historic threats confronting this town. 

The numbers . . .

Kansas City has tied a historic murder count and recorded 153 homicides so far this year. 

That is the highest number since 1993 and compares to only 124 murders at this time last year. 

Similarly . . .

The KCMO Health Department reports 172 COVID-19 deaths so far this year with 13,792 lab-confirmed infections.

Across the U.S. Heartland that number is spiking and will likely grow worse as cold & flu season quickly arrives. 

And so we ask our blog community for insight, guidance and perspective . . .

SHOULD KANSAS CITY FEAR THE HISTORIC MURDER COUNT MORE THAN COVID-19?!?

Of course we realize that caution and public info are more important than panic and so we provide a few resources on these scary topics from mainstream sources. Check the links . . .

KSHB: Retired KCPD detective says city is in 'uncharted waters' as 2020’s homicides tie record

NBC: New Covid cases surge in Midwest as weather cools and resistance heats up

The reality is that both of these historic threats confront Kansas City and worsen this town's other problems like housing, transit, development and the ongoing debate betwixt urban leaders vs. police.

You decide . . .

Sorry, not sorry.

And yet growing violence in the suburbs and more coronavirus are a problem everywhere in the Midwest. Weird.

Most of the victims and suspects in the homicides are hood rat criminals, so who cares? The more murders, the better.

CORONAVIRUS DEATH IS TO KCMO HOMICIDE DEATH
LIKE
A BAD DREAM IS TO A FATAL REALITY

COVID-19 death reporting is like a lumberjack reportedly dying from a splinter infection, when in fact his chainsaw kicked back, severed his arm, and then the tree fell on him.

^^^ And the Republican mythology is like when somebody goes for a walk, trips and falls, a tree being cut by that lumberjack drops onto him, and somebody with Orange Hair goes on TV to say "no, he died from a skinned knee"!

Murder, Covid 19, who cares. As long as I drink whiskey, smoke weed and fuck hot sluts on a daily basis , everything’s alright.

Again today, I saw my friend, a nurse who works in the Covid Ward at Research. I asked her if there was any change in the occupancy and she said, and I quote, "A little uptick".

The virus is gonna "virus" and the only thing that happens when you shut everything down in hopes that Democrats can win elections based on fear, is that you delay the infections to come, that are inevitable. The infection rate is up, because there is so much more testing - hence the numbers of infected are now known as opposed to last spring, when they were not known The death rate is down dramatically and the lies you see from our national 'leaders' and so called "health experts" are politicized bullshit, designed to manipulate you.

Do I wanna party with Hunter Biden? Fuck yes! Do I think his dad and the Democrat Party are corrupt, evil and criminal? Fuck yes! THOSE are facts.

Are you gonna die if you don't wear a mask to a local bar in Westport late on a Friday Night - maybe, but your chances of getting shot by some thug, are a lot, lot higher.

If the mask is bullet proof, then I might consider it a good idea. The mask, the hoax - it is all about control, manipulation, shaming and training you to OBEY!

Sorry I'm going to believe the news reports more than some random trolls on a crap blog.

Congratulations! You passed the Kansas City reading comprehension test! They conducted on this blog because there are a few ligers who think that they can read but really can. Kudos to you!

Well the blacks kill pretty much anyone of any age and race.

The covid kills those already at death's door, ave age 80 with 2 or more comorbidities.

Covid is nothing to worry about. Its minor. Ask Herman Cain his opinion! Hee Hee!

So true. We did have an assault at the grocery store when two ladies smashed shopping carts trying to get to the fresh sushi. Outside of that it’s been pretty quiet. Your insights are spot on as usual. Keep up the good work.

Murder is and always will be a nightmare in kc, with covid there’s a vaccine around the corner and with the murderous blacks there is no cure so yes, murderous blacks are and will continue to be the biggest problem that wont be solved because that’s racist if you try.

Nobody can do anything with black people because they refuse to be normal. They cannot be fixed. Covid can.

2020 is the year that fear became a virtue in the United States. We should be cautious but we should not be fearful. Fearful people are known as cowards and cowards are damnable lot.

Sorry chuck, I would never believe anything that comes out of your cock-hole. First, you have no friends. Zero. Second you're a known liar. Third, you're crazy, and lastly, you're just a worthless piece of shit. Nice try though. I'm sure losers like stupor dave will slurp up that shit. The rest of us? No dice.

I though CNN and a few other liberal outlets said the biggest threat to america was redneck white supremacists ? Why are not they not looking in rural areas to solve all these murders and leave the blacks on Prospect alone.
