NUMB TO METRO MURDERS?
It seems that murders in KCMO are becoming so common that people have actually stopped caring. Over the past 3 weeks I have been discussing crime in KCMO with some business leaders and the response I have gotten is "I have stopped watching the news due to it" or " I have lost track". I believe that this is due to the lack of emotional attatchment that most people have to this type of violence. Lets face it the idea of your house getting shot up or getting shot at a suburb park are slim to none. So how can you relate?
Well I just read this story about a young 17 year old that was shot execution style by blood gang members. This murder happened to get caught by security cameras and the still have been released to the press. Remember while you are looking at the pictures and reading the article that the man killed was a young father.
Maybe this will wake your ass's up.
