Often this blog fields complaints that we talk too much about crime and given that we have a broad interest in local topics . . . That might be correct.
However . . .
We notice that local MSM has been exceptionally quiet about the KCMO murder count continuing along a record breaking pace during a bitter debate over police funding.
Moreover . . .
Kansas City fighting over politics, culture war and so-called "local control" whilst residents are getting killed is worth highlighting.
And that's why we share this news gathering tonight.
Here's the report following our unofficial count this evening . . .
