Kansas City’s seemingly intractable problem with violent crime remains a concern for its citizens — and its elected leaders.
Wednesday, we’ll talk about the issue with Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker. She’s on the front lines of the effort against the bloodshed.
We’ll ask what more the area could do to slow down the crime epidemic, and how the public can become involved in the push for safety on the streets.
You can take part, too, by sending questions we’ll ask during the conversation.
When: 4 p.m. Wednesday
Who: Star editorial board members Colleen McCain Nelson and Dave Helling will talk with Baker.
What: We’ll discuss crime, prosecutions, the Jackson County jail crisis and the state of criminal justice in the community.
How: Watch live and submit a question. Or check out the video later.
