The indifferent Killa City claims another.
Another one for the Cold Case file.

There it is again, Benton Blvd, the MLK of Kansas City. I wonder if black people are involved?

This is Ms. Curls' neighborhood. Instead moonlighting as a real estate afficiando, which she is not. Maybe she needs a neighborhood watch program to start cleaning up her own neighborhood.

8:47 South Benton and Benton Blvd are two different streets. There you go again talking about something you know little about. This happened on South Benton, which is an Avenue, not a Boulevard.

Mothers in Charge, KCNOVA, Aim 4 Peace, what say you? As Dr. Phil asks, "How's that workin' out for ya?" Whatever it is you're (not) doing is clearly NOT working out at all. Meanwhile you continue sucking up federal and local dollars and produce absolutely no results.

In that neighborhood, death by homicide IS 'natural causes'.

Polar Bear and I both agreed on 116 and since he's not around (I sure do miss him) so I'm just keeping our prediction alive. --- Crip

Unfortunately, I must agree with you. Sadly, I have to go against my better judgement and support your position on all the wasted attempts that the supposed leadership is promoting. If someone actually took the time to communicate with the individuals they were making all this effort to assist, they would find out all the time and money spent paying politicians and staff could have went into job enhancement and job creation. Most crime is up in urban areas because economic are down. Statistics will prove that areas with economics that are inclusive of those in area have the ability to improve themselves. Also statistics will prove that any situation where race population has large disparities in income and opportunities, it is a system designed to fail. KCMO spends billions of dollars per year with its annual budget, yet the percentage of that budget received by businesses and individuals in the urban areas represent less than 4% of reciprocity. These types of investment strategies are for sure the formulas for failure. If any other communities were forced to exist under these conditions it would have taken some kind of legal action. Ie, atheist filed lawsuits against the city for funding religious party with city funds. It got press and will get further attention. When the people in charge get ready to make a valued change for all, then you will get results worth noting, until then. Keep the funeral homes open, keep the public safety jobs posted, and keep the insurance policies up, both personal and property. You'll need them, I'm okay I'm adaptive. You've taught me well!

Build a police station there. That'll solve everything.

Running from gunfire is nothing to be ashamed of.
