The above map is some of the crimes committed in just four days in Kansas City which has a very high crime rate after the police were ordered to never shoot at anyone except when attacked and even then, they should hesitate. So now the thugs run wild, the city is increasingly uninhabitable and the former police chief that started all this is proud of stopping the police!

Kansas City’s black community wanted to know, Why had this boy died for a nonviolent crime? My police department responded quickly: He should not have been fired upon.
I reminded the media that I had announced in my first news conference as chief that I didn’t believe officers should use their firearms unless there was imminent danger to human life. I planned to rewrite the firearms policy, I had declared, so that officers were officially ordered not to fire except under those circumstances.
As soon as possible, we announced the official new policy. It prohibited police officers from firing at unarmed suspects. We cut back on all police use of military gear. We invited local community leaders to help shape police responses.
In the wake of the new policy, police shootings fell dramatically, and crime declined as local leadership joined with police in speaking out against crime.
The Kansas City shooting, remarkably similar to Ferguson today, offers lessons we can learn.
McNamara was brought in from NYC right when crime began to rage out of control there. Like his fellow top cops at that time, he was proud of avoiding race riots…via ignoring blacks when they destroyed neighborhoods, burned businesses, attacked whites, Asians and Hispanics and committed many crimes.
Here is a short list of reported crimes in Kansas City over the course of less than a week:
This is exactly why I started my own police patrols and why I was engaged in very bitter battles with the Mayors, Beame and Koch both, and the entire police structure to force them into patrolling mostly black neighborhoods and going after thugs who were a very grave menace. They wanted to patrol only their own mainly white (Jewish and Italian) neighborhoods. And ‘leave the animals to kill each other’ in black neighborhoods which was perfectly fine with Al Sharpton and his gang.

The national spotlight on Kansas City has been harsh in recent days.
With 20 or so reported random shootings on the highways and a neo-Nazi charged with three senseless killings in a suburb, the city’s image as a good place to live and visit has been shaken.
Most of the roadway shootings occurred within Kansas City’s limits. And while Sunday’s murders happened in Overland Park, some major U.S. media have highlighted the fact they were in “a suburb of Kansas City, Mo.” (The New York Times), a “Kansas City suburb” (Huffington Post) or “the Kansas City area” (CNN).
The violent crime rate is over three times greater than the US average. The black mayor was blase about all this:
Mayor Sly James gave a TV interview on the subject, which included this attempt to downplay the troubles:
“But I do not believe that you can say that what’s going on in Kansas City is of such a weird nature, such an extreme nature, that it’s any different to what’s happening in the rest of the country. It’s not.”
Compared to Detroit and Camden, NJ, maybe Kansas City isn’t so bad. But it is! Compared to more civilized places, it is becoming a hell hole.
