We’re violence free. Hooray!

If you wasted 10 minutes of your valuable time on the most recent Violence Free KC survey, congratulations – that’s 10 minutes of your life you won’t get back.

Not to worry however, this nosey newshound took the complete waste of brain space survey and noted some glaring omissions. But go figure, the survey was created by a gaggle of hand wringing liberals bent on wasting your tax dollars on so called solutions that will make Kansas City the gun-free, violence-free utopia they think exists in some magical universe.

The survey is yet another feeble attempt to stay relevant by the Aim4Peace bunch in order to justify their existence. This news-dog has long questioned the funding of these grifters, given their abysmal track record. Apparently they’re running low on t-shirts, hot-dogs and balloons for their vigils.

Be that as it may, nowhere in this survey was there a question about the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department and the staffing shortages therein. Interestingly, the police department isn’t even mentioned in the survey. Let that sink in for a minute. A survey supposedly about the reduction of violent crime and KCPD isn’t given so much as a mention. Not a total surprise, given this is the bunch that thinks law enforcement is the problem, not the solution.

Also conspicuously absent from the survey was any reference to the prosecutor’s office and the effective prosecution of street-level violent criminals. Given there’s still a bullet in the back door of our building fired from the gun possessed by a violent felon – a felon who still walks the streets of Northeast today – we’ve got skin in the game on this one. This dog has yet to receive any explanation as to how or why the top prosecutor seems powerless to capably prosecute this case or any other low profile case with similar circumstances.

Here’s the bottom line: violent crime will continue to be an issue as long as the prosecutor’s office is allowed to advance the same failed paradigm of plea-bargaining cases down to lesser offenses and allowing violent criminals to walk free. Sadly, the criminals know this and jones the system at every turn, making Jackson County and specifically Kansas City a perennial high achiever on the list of the nation’s most dangerous cities. As long as the status quo continues to exist, there will always be a place at the feeding trough for scammers and grifters like Aim4Peace. The Dog thinks its time to drain the trough and start taking care of business.
