NOBODY WANTS MORE KANSAS CITY RIOTING IN SUPPORT OF SOME DUDE WANTED FOR SHOOTING UP AN URBAN CORE BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!
Whilst any deadly violence is regrettable, it's important to focus on facts and not unsubstantiated claims of martyrdom or inequity.
However . . . The aftermath of the shooting is "complicated" because it's connected to an innocent youngster who was shot dead in his sleep and championed by the Prez Trump administration in a nationwide crime sweep.
Even worse . . . What's unfortunate in this conversation is that community concern for the cop who was shot is almost nil and the local conversation mostly focuses on the continued threat of civil unrest and outcry over alleged systemic racism that will never justify some guy opening fire in the direction of youngsters.
On Friday, police say Malcom Johnson was wanted for a shooting that happened inside the 9700 block of 43rd Street on March 15.
An official police report says Johnson, at a birthday party, opened fire towards the calling party's daughter. A male was injured in the shooting. The intended victim was the ex-girlfriend of Johnson, according to the report.
Four vehicles were struck during the gunfire.
The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating and told KCTV5 they weren’t aware of any body cam footage.
Johnson was also the Godfather of LeGend Taliferro.
