A bloody weekend leaves Kansas City right back on pace for another historically deadly year.
This time around it'll be harder to blame Prez Trump, social injustice, some tragic guy killed by police in another state, COVID or whatever other social evil Anderson Cooper offers the plebs.
Accordingly and after three Sunday murders . . .
KANSAS CITY IS NOW ON PACE TO REPEAT THE RECORD BREAKING HOMICIDE PATTERN OF 2020!!! IF LOCALS DON'T HOLD THE KCPD CHIEF & MAYOR Q ACCOUNTABLE FOR SHARING SOME KIND OF VIABLE ANTI-CRIME PLAN . . . THE BLOODY CRISIS WILL PERSIST!!!
So far all we've heard is propaganda, partisan hack arguments and hype.
Mayor Q is mostly blaming the deaths on gun rights, Republicans and the 2nd Amendment.
Callously, the KCPD promotes their performance after one of the deadliest years in KCMO history.
Of course there's enough blame to go around . . .
But here's an impossible request . . .
IF THE MAYOR & THE POLICE CHIEF AREN'T GOING TO SHARE ANY REAL PLANS WITH THE PUBLIC ABOUT HOMICIDE PREVENTION AMID HISTORIC KILLING THAN THEY SHOULD ADVISE US THAT THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THEY CAN DO TO CONTROL THE SLAUGHTER AND ADMIT THEIR FAILURE SO WE CAN MOVE ON!!!
So far the media spin we've seen from City Hall & 12th & Oak merely serves to distract or provide fantastical excuses that mostly serve to target political opposition.
In the final analysis . . .
Kansas City is a town of grown ups and if record breaking killing year after year is now the "new normal" post-COVID then Kansas City deserves to know as much.
You decide . . .
