Argument: More Black Detectives Will Lower Kansas City Homicide Count?!?

The subtext: Diversity hires demanded or people will die. 

This argument didn't seem to hold true when local homicides spiked under the first African-American police chief. And so, there's very little evidence to back up the premise other than hiring hype for a department that has FAILED to meet staffing goals promised back in 1968.

Dearth Of Black Detectives On Kansas City Police Force Hobbles Its Ability To Solve Violent Crime

Kansas City has already set a record for homicides this year, with 158 as of this weekend. Hundreds of other people have been shot and wounded. The vast majority of victims and witnesses have been African Americans. But only a fraction of the detectives investigating those violent crimes are Black.

What a bullshit argument

Put whatever you want in there but unless and until Q Ball gets off his ass and stops mollycoddling the criminal class NOTHING will change. Leadership starts with his office. Kansas Shitty will hit 200 by the end of the year.

That shithole isn't my problem anymore. Have fun with it guys. I'm just watching for entertainment purposes.

Again, ZERO personal responsibility or accountability.

Instead of promoting the obvious: all witnesses, anyone with information should come forward and help apprehend criminal suspect.

There now needs to be certain conditions to do the right and moral thing.

In Kansas Shitty? Surely you jest sir!

Bandit/Chuck/Retro (and about a dozen other aliases), can we PLEASE have the benefit of another few hundred of your inane and irrelevant posts on EVERY topic here today? Come on, Please? After all, you obviously have no life, no wife, no hope, no dope, or anything better to do.

The media in this town has either become so distant from reality, or lying through their teeth. I think they are sadly missing the aptitude to think past their own industry narrative.

Let's review this story, about lowering homicide rates. Somehow it's now a policing issue because one part of this community simply refuses to admit they have issues? Beyond a headline, did Sam Zeff draw a single fact line how more black detectives would stop homicides? Detectives actually detect AFTER the event. After reading this drivel multiple times I still have not found an instance where one of the brilliant minds could draw a factual correlation. What is clearly ignored is the fact that Jean Peters Baker was in the Star for giving the most lenient punishments to criminals in the entire country. What is also ignored is that most homicide suspects are already on probation, pre-trial or should be in prison for a prior conviction. Jackson County, led by JPB, has become a war zone. A war between multiple time convicted suspects and those who try to just survive. Black people will continue to die because she is in office. People like her have spent years pointing at everyone else, but have been shielded from any news outlet looking into the fact that most murderers should already be serving time.

Zeff, a normally balanced reporter, should be ashamed to go to print with a purely opinion based article which is completely devoid of any factual evidence to back up those opinions.

Yeah, Bandit, why not focus on Indianapolis or Pittsburgh for a change? Much more going on there. Plus, you don't live there, either!

All KCUR had to do was pull the clearance rate of black detectives vs. white detectives. They didn't even bother to do that.

Bandit said...

Maybe if they had an award for each milestone in the body count? Perhaps get out of jail free? Oh wait, that's what Mean Jean Petersucker is for. Nevermind. Carry on!

for comparison - the construction trade i work in i run across some potential black customers - they'tr main point is that they want the best for which suits them no matter the race of a constractor.

I've asked a few times the question of have you tried calling a black contractor or have thoughts of letting a black person do the job to give him a chance. replies were like i want it done right and what's right for me with race not coming into play. i understand better since hearing that.

maybe the white cops could possibly try a little harder to be more convincing when it's help out time though apparently it's a two way street in regards to human lives.

Hire based on qualifications. Racial bean counting is coincidental.

If hiring based on qualifications, only Black Female Lesbians need apply.

I wouldn't call it that 1:01 but it is definitely a shithole. Glad I'm out of it. y'all can have fun trying to figure out how to fix it and pay for that. Kudos on the toy choo choo and the partially built airport that wasn't needed to begin with though. Do me a favor and pat Q Ball on the back k?

Black detectives won't lower the homicide count, black people shooting other black people will.

I call bullshit. More Black skinned anything has not contributed to any progress on any political form. It may have spread the wealth and slightly diversified it but it has never solved a social problem. Not one. See doing things based solely on skin color has the opposite effect. Homicides will increase and will go largely unsolved, bungled because Black people don’t care about other Black people. Not really. What they care about is turning the profit wheel in the name of Blackness. It has nothing to do with a love of, appreciation for or allegiance to Blackness; and therefore inserting/adding more Black skinned people to some will never have the intended effect, which is to lower crime. Proof. We have a Black Mayor, Black Sherriff, Black School Board Director, Black this, that and the other and Kansas City is seeing the highest crime, specifically murder, rates since the 90’s. And just who are the victims and perpetrators? Overwhelmingly... Black people.
