Default Street Racing special report

I just saw an advertisement for a street racing special report on Channel 9 KMBC that will be on the 10pm news Thursday night. Might be a good watch and see some of KCSRs finest.

The "actual one" is yet to air. It will be shown tonight (Thursday) at 10pm.

This morning they are teasing it as an "Exclusive Investigation" and also "Fast & Furious Investigation".

Default news and street racing

Hey guys I don't know if this is a good convo for this lounge but let's get it started.....
So I'm sitting at home and the news is starting to talk about street racing.. so supposedly we race to kill. I mean okay we all race, there's no doubt about that. So they caught us racing in the westbottoms. Lol and a guy says " I have seen like three of them just about crash" ...smh man look what reporters say about us its pretty funny if u guys have seen it. They say that there going to change tactics on us. But I mean what do they expect they shut down kcir, and now we gotta drive far to get to a strip. The ex manager or whatever says " I mean this is not suprising everybody wants to race, we took odor away can't stop them" or some sort. So back in march a young lady died from "street racing" no no no who races on banister road when its wet WHILE turning onto hillcrest (I know because I live around there) i don't know let me know what you guys think sorry if this is in wrong section. If possible mods can u place in correct section.. thank you...

On side note if they don't want us to street race give us back a strip

I am still scratching my head at what KMBC believes they uncovered in their "Investigation".

Street racing in Kansas City is far from a new thing.

Shutdown the ONE place where anyone can legally race and you expect everyone to just disassemble their built cars and find a new hobby? Yeah a few might go out and find a new hobby but, the majority have too much invested and are not going to drive out to Topeka for a few passes, when there is open street in the same city that shutdown the local track. You reap what you sow.

Their report looked like they went out maybe two nights. They didn't reveal anything other than the locations where the races commonly occur, the popular locations that you could probably find posted on the internet for all to see.

I haven't been out to the races in at least five years but, the story over exaggerated everything. You can hear someone firing a gun, as a marked patrol car pulls up with lights flashing... I went to the races countless times over the years and as far as I can remember, I only heard gunshots once, and it was unrelated to the races.

KMBC led up to this "Investigation" with video and brief report of the teen killed in the "street racing crash" on Hillcrest between Bannister Road and 87th Street.

The "anchors" said something about "Diane Cho has been working on this Investigation for a month." Wow! A whole month? She must mean business! /sarcasm

I am not trying to make light of the death of a teenager but, lets get the facts straight before we try to bunch one deadly street race (in broad daylight on a roadway which is far from ideal), with the organised street races.

I was hoping for more from someone associated with KCIR. All KMBC could manage to squeeze in was a two sentence quote thrown in at the very end? All they could get from the Police Department was one officer's opinion? Come on!

Also threw in that they are going to have "more" about this on the morning news. Hard to tell it is November Sweeps. Everyone has their tacky giveaways going begging people to watch them.

lol.... yea... the mainstream news is going to portray street racing in a positive light...

The fact that they actually mentioned KCIR at the end is about all anyone could have hoped for.
