Garrison announced that of the 355 arrested in the Kansas City area, 88 have been charged in federal court in Kansas City. Another 21 are federal defendants elsewhere — 18 in Kansas and three in Texas. Among those arrested, 33 involve homicide cases.
Teams of federal and local authorities have made more than 1,000 arrests, including suspects in 90 homicides, as part of a national crackdown on violent crime in nine U.S. cities, Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday. Barr's announcement comes more than a month after the Trump administration launched the enforcement effort, known as Operation Legend.
First launched in Kansas City, Operation Legend expanded to Chicago and Albuquerque on July 22; to Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee on July 29; to St. Louis and Memphis on Aug. 6; and to Indianapolis on Aug. 14.
Attorney General Barr
“LeGend is a symbol of the many hundreds of innocent lives that have been taken in the recent upsurge of crime in many of our urban areas,” Barr said at a press conference in Kansas City. “His life mattered and the lives of all of those victims matter. His name should be remembered and his senseless death, like those of all the other innocent victims in this recent surge, should be unacceptable to all Americans.”

The reality is that the biggest threat to a young black man is another young black man.
A culture shift is needed but I'm not sure who is capable of starting that shift.

the solution is simple.
at 16, vesectimys for all men.
you also give them 10,000 at age 18, for the reversal.
you can spend it anyway you want lol. we gave it to you.
in 15 years, no more lower class, as there will be so many less families with 4 kids making 30k a year if that.

Won't work, not if you force it on all 16 year olds or all men. They will revolt, you need a positive incentive that will send them running and willing to get it done.
Instead, give every male 16 and up ONE FREE vasectomy, plus $5000 cash. Teens 16-18 must have parental consent and the parents get a $1000 bonus for consent. Teens and lots of men will rush to get it done for the money.
Then give every male one free reversal after age 25, no cash incentive. The reason for 25 is that the brain does not fully mature until age 25, before that the brain is still growing and developing and reasoning is still immature.
The cash incentive for a reversal will send them in droves to get one.
That would help a great deal, perhaps stop the epidemic of young gang members thinking that the more children they have, that they never see or interact with, the more of a real man they are. This is a REAL issue in the poverty stricken gang areas of cities, for all races.

How about if Reparation is made in the form of a free trip to a new tribal homeland in Africa or other country depending on complainants.
Are you offering a free trip to every immigrant that came to the United States or just the people who were slaves since they're not needed any more and also the fact that this country couldn't be shared equally with black people?
The country where you are most likely to be enslaved is Mauritania. Although this vast West African nation has tried three times to outlaw slavery within its borders, it remains so common that it is nearly normal. The report estimates that four percent of Mauritania is enslaved – one out of every 25 people. (The aid group SOS Slavery, using a broader definition of slavery, estimated several years ago that as many as 20 percent of Mauritanians might be enslaved.)
