Kansas City crime spurs Stop the Violence rally

It won't work without candles, balloons and tee shirts.

Nothing like yet another vigil or rally with uninformed speakers spewing the same old tired mantras.
If even a few of these folks would roll up their sleeves and go door-to-door in their own neighborhoods to encourage people to help provide for their own safety by cooperating with the police, they might actually make at least a little contribution to curbing the violence in THEIR OWN COMMUNITY.
Anything else is just grandstanding and empty rhetoric.

Vigils don't work. Law and Order does, which you will never see from your racist mayor and racist congress man. You know the AMORON who is the laughing stock worldwide.

Maybe pickleball could save the eastside.

I'll bet that could really unite the hood.

How many blacks were killed in this country today by other blacks? What does BLM have to say about it......crickets. Stupid grifters just like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Until BLM utters one word on the epidemic of black crime they are hypocrites.
