79th Street and Frontage
ran from the scene, heading eastbound
East of this armed robbery is becoming a very bad area in Overland Park. It is becoming predominately black race residents from 87th north to almost 75th street, Antioch to I-35. Smart people know to stay away from this area at night. This area is full of cheap section 8 housing or if you want the truth, slum apartments.

There should be something telling in the warm arms programs between OPRMC and TMC. OP is completely booked on volunteers, they won't even accept additional applications at this time, TMC can't get enough volunteers to book half time. I have an idea why and it has to do with the clientele of the hospital once the sun sets. It is NOT a good or safe place to be unless you're locked behind the doors.

It also doesn't help that they restrict applicants to 55. What an odd, arbitrary limit. I know plenty of people much younger than that who have some time, and more importantly, energy, to hold NICU babies.
