Bill Barr announces crackdown on rising violence in Kansas City

Attorney General Bill Barr announced on Wednesday that the Justice Department is making serious moves to drop the hammer on rising crime rates in American cities. 

Operation Legend — named in honor of four-year-old LeGend Taliferro who was fatally shot in his bed last month — will coordinate federal law enforcement with state and local law enforcement to quell the rising crime and violence in Kansas City, Missouri.

“President Trump has made clear: The federal government stands ready and willing to assist any of our state and local law enforcement partners across the nation responding to violent crime,” Barr said in his announcement.

Barr explained that Operation Legend is part of the White House’s broader plan to “assist America’s cities that are plagued by recent violence.”

Amid calls to defund the police, the Justice Department is ratcheting up law enforcement presence and cooperation in U.S. cities experiencing spiking crime rates.

“Operation Legend will combine federal and local resources to combat the disturbing uptick in violence by surging federal agents and other federal assets into cities like Kansas City, a city currently experiencing its worst homicide rate in its history,” Barr said.

Barr has directed FBI, DEA, ATF, and U.S. Marshal Service officers to combat violent crime in Kansas City. “They will be working alongside state and local law enforcement agencies. Department of Justice assets will include over 100 FBI agents, U.S. Marshals, DEA agents, and ATF agents,” Barr explained.

According to local news outlet KMBC, “The city has recorded 100 homicides so far in 2020, which is a 40% increase over last year.”

Mart, I have asked this question over and over. Are we to believe that anything will be done to punish these people or was all of this just another hoax? When will the villainous Democrats be held accountable or is this just another sweep it under the carpet issue?

What is Barr doing about the criminals in the FBI, STATE DEPT, White House, Deep State criminals. He appointed an attorney Durham, that we never heard from in regard to all these criminals. Hillary Clinton, biggest criminal of all, is running around free for over 25 years; never indicted, no grand jury investigation, murders anyone that will talk about her, Rosenstein, Comey, Pstryk, Lisa Page, Susan Rice, Joe Biden, Barack Hussein Obama, Clapper, Brennan, Samantha Powers, people who did unmasking of General Flynn and President Trump, overseas CIA spying operatives against innocent people as Carter Page, Sally Yates, etc. I could go on and on but there isn’t enough space and time. Where is Barr with his indictments of all the criminals who tried to undo an election and take down our duly elected president. Where is Durham and what is he doing? This is a farce and they have let Pres. Trump swing in the wind. Shameful and disgusting. These are not servants of the government. They are all out to undermine Trump.

Oh Please! Pay attention to your feeds…there will be indictments from the Durham investigation coming by labor day…and that is just the beginning.. They are keeping a lid on things to ensure there are no leaks as to whom is going to be indicted. Be patient…this is going to be epic.

Finally their time has come. I bet most Americans are fed up and if the violent protesters meet an untimely end don’t stop. The citizens of this country have had enough, and I think the gun owners would be willing to help out. Let’s get back to a civilized country. Now. All the democrats giving these rioters are f ing idiots. Nothing will satisfy them. Maybe the violence needs to be turned on them and George Soros.

Send back people who riot and have obtained American Citizenship as Omar, Soros, and others to their home country. Eliminate their American citizenship. They cannot live up to our Constitution and do not deserve to be in the US. And declare BLACK LIVES MATTER and ANTIFA TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS. We will then see how our cities return to normalacy. Lock up the criminals who loot and destroy businesses for 25 years. And recall the mayors and governors of these states that have allowed bedlam, murders, destruction of properties and businesses without lifiing a finger. Start with Di Blasio and Cuomo of NY and continue on to the other Democratic Mayors and Governors that have allowed murder and bedlam in our cities and states. Di Blasio gave away millions of dollars of NY City money to his wife and then cut the budget $1B for the NY Police. Di Blasio is a thief, a murderer of police, who has allowed criminals to roam free in the most beautiful city in the world-New York.

I believe AOC is a natural born citizen, so she cannot be deported. How would you determine what ‘pushing racism” is? Is it telling a racial joke? Is it being fearful of a group of young people of one color? What, exactly, is “pushing” racism? Frustrating to live in a country where you are free to say the most hateful things, make the most boneheaded arguments, and people may debate or argue, but you have the right to say it. Unfortunately, that right is being degraded each day with the “safe spaces” on our campuses, the term “hate speech”-I have no definition of “hate speech”, and I honestly do not think there is one. I may be wrong about that. It is all subjective-you do not know what is going on in some one’s mind or heart. Unless they take some actions that show you.

Great! Give the local Police all the help that they need to stop this violence, mostly Black on Black crimes committed by gangs. The cops could solve a lot more if the Black community would just step up and tell the cops what they know and in many cases WHO committed the homicide instead of ‘not snitching’.
