    A circus parade and rally for nonviolence that drew hundreds of people to the Linwood Shopping Center on Tuesday evening had to be cut short when multiple fights broke out.

    Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté said the organizers stopped the event. He tweeted that the crowds dispersed and there were no reported injuries.

    But the fighting marred an event, called “Your Life Counts,” that was intended to celebrate survival in a city plagued by crime.

    I was going to post this, but forgot about it after I saw it on Fox4KC last night.

    Really, a "nonviolence" rally that breaks out into violence. Typical inner-city Kansas City. We don't have the out-of-control violence of Chicago or Detroit, but it's bad enough.
