2010 Homicides: February

Here are the names of the people who lost their lives in February 2010 to homicide in Kansas City, Missouri.

Henry Scott IV, 28--Avion D Williamson, 18--Michael E Baker, Jr, 20--Terrell Parker, 24

In addition to these, two people were killed by Kansas City police officers:

Jessica Jones, 19--Blake Bowman, 18

Our list is up to 13 at this point. It includes two women.

I am trying to be accurate with this project to the best of my abilities. I may have made a typo or not had complete information. When I find mistakes, I'll fix them. If you know of an error, let me know in the comments section.

Dear The Observer,

My condolences to the families and friends of Henry, Avion, Michael, Terrell, Jessica and Blake.

Glad you posted this.

Goes to show that YOU are concerned, even if others that SHOULD be...are not (that much).

All people need to stand up AGAINST violence...whenever it rears it's head in our communities.

Remove the societal CAUSES of such violence (and it's not GUNS...or even BULLETS)...and restore dignity and integrity to people.
THAT should be the "battle-cry".

Stay safe out there.

Ann T and Bob G:

Thanks for stopping by.

This has been a sobering exercise. We really need to think hard on what we can do to stop this.

That includes all people, Black and White. While most of the victims are Black, we are all affected by their violent loss.

Legalize drugs, especially teh hippie lettuce.

Free up space, lots of space in prisons for violent offneders and KEEP them locked up.

End the war on drugs.
