Thanks you for the very good reporting by The Star on the “Murder Factory” (1/25,-27, A-1). Two items need to be corrected in ZIP code 64130 in order to move forward and begin healing.
No. 1 is to provide new, fresh, strong black leadership. This means casting off the first-generation entitlement black leadership. These black leaders have shown no inclination to admonish the people they claim to lead and represent. Worse are their guilty white accomplices and enablers who want to turn their heads and shovel more money to the failed Kansas City School District.
No. 2 is the school district leadership needs to segregate the students who want to learn and send them to protected environments. The troublemakers need to be sent to a disciplinary school environment for attitude adjustments.
It sure will be a tough sell, and it will not be easy. But a tough, comprehensive program to address the problem is needed from people who care for the future of the kids in the “Murder Factory” and Kansas City. Anything less is to promote the status quo.
