Re: “Is KC responsible for Missouri being pronounced 'Missourah' ?

If they had done any actual research they would know that it's a Native American word from the Missouri area TRIBE and that it was WEST MISSOURI!!! It comes from the tribal name Missouria, which means "big canoe people." See the map.. it's pretty clear. http://www.native-languages.org/missouri.h…

Re: “Kansas City DUI checkpoints to honor victims killed by drunk drivers

Aside from the fact that checkpoints do not have an effect on fatality DUI accidents, I contend that there isn't possibly a way to have enough "enforcement" with a checkpoint. The problem with trying to ENFORCE DUIs with checkpoints is they only cover one very small spot on thousands of miles of roadway. Checkpoints are NEVER about enforcement, they are about awareness. Unfortunately the KC POLICE have over-used this for INCOME and not for awareness so it’s not even a media event anymore. Now the only way they can make it a media event is to VICTIMIZE the victim yet again.

On the day this accident happened, there was not a checkpoint in the area... not even remotely. Additionally there has YET to be any checkpoint TO ANY ROADS leading to this general area or on I435 (bad idea). And obviously they aren’t going to put checkpoints facing the wrong way to catch a driver like this.

We at @kccheckpoint are fans of enforcement that works and decreasing DUIs in KC... this fatality is nothing but proof that their weekly checkpoints don't work... thanks KC Police for memorializing your failures. Checkpoint maps avail here: http://kccheckpoint.com/map/
