Here at TKC our blog community believes that real local "journalism" involves providing readers with a "sense of place" and reporting the reality of life in our town, Kansas City.
To wit . . .
WITHOUT QUESTION THE COVID COMEBACK JULY 4TH WEEKEND WAS A TOTAL KANSAS CITY GARBAGE FIRE!!!
Rampant shootings, more than two dozen fires and complete disrespect, a ton of injuries and disregard for community and the rules that KEEP US ALL SAFE marked the national holiday as the pandemic is hopefully coming to a conclusion.
We've documented the disaster over the course of today but now we leave close readers with some news that might be useful . . .

And so, here's more data on the trash amnesty . . .

In our newsletter tonight we ask our KICK-ASS SUBSCRIBERS if this trashy Kansas City weekend is merely the tipping point of more violence. Sign up and take part in the conversation and desperate search for solutions!!!
