Guess Post - Ernest Evans

In the story she did in July 2011 on my research on crime in KCMO Ms. Betsy Webster of KCTV 5 noted that in the past 15 years there have been an average of 42 more black homicides in KCMO than homicides of other races, but that after the Salva story broke this figure increased to 57 more black homicides than homicides of other races. This gaphas appeared, according to preliminary figures, to have grown in the past year. 

 In calender year 2011 there were 62 more black homicides than homicides of other races, and in the first year of Mayor James administration (May 1, 2011-April 30, 2012) there were 70 more black homicides than homicides of other races. Right now in 2012, we are at 43 more black homicides than homicides of other races--and the calender year still has three months to run. Crime situation in the city's black neighborhoods appears to be deteriorating.
