THE KANSAS CITY CEASEFIRE DECLARED BY LOCAL CLERGY DIDN'T EVEN LAST A DAY!!!
Ministers boldly announced the "ceasefire" after a week of gunfire and spate of recent murders include a teen shot dead in Ruskin Heights.
However, as we predicted, this latest murder confirms that faith leaders have little sway or influence within their own community.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Clergy members in the Kansas City, Missouri, are asking for three weeks of no violence, starting on Sunday. "It is time for our community to declare that we are no longer sitting back," Pastor Cassandra Wainright, with the Concerned Clergy Coalition said.
So far this is 67th homicide in KCMO so far in 2021 compared to 81 at this time last year . . . However, the pace of local killing is quickly picking up after the February arctic chill cooled tempers and the count.
Moreover, and local news is missing this angle, in the past two months at least half a dozen women have died violently in Kansas City revealing a lasting deadly trend that escalated amid pandemic lock down.
