Your silence & ignorance is killing you.

Always said you take your chances of being shot at taking 71 Hwy or having blocks of concrete thrown from overpasses on I-70.

Yeah, 71 fucking sucks. Always avoid it if I can, which is most of the time thank God.

How about not rolling around the hood at midnight Saturday night with your kids in the car? Accept some responsibility for once.

I would like to hear the father explain what he was doing driving around to shithole hood at midnight with young children in the truck. How did he not know his child was shot before he made it to his shithole in Grandview. Maybe the Grandma who is spouting off all the time can answer this, because the father isn’t talking. The fathe is a typical piece of shit.

When there are no more hotels, airports, arenas, sports stadiums, entertainment districts, shopping centers, corporate headquarters or offices to build or subsidize.

The NAACP was right for issuing a travel advisory for Missouri but it isn’t white cops they need to be afraid of. It’s the CP part of NAACP.

Last year I was on 71 and at one of the spots where it drops to 45 cops were staked out taking radar.

I was flying, like, 65mph or faster. A cop started to step out into the roadway to wave me to pull over, but then he saw that I was white, and then indicated for me to keep driving but to slow down.

Theys wasn't looking to write out speeding tickets.

The father of that young boy more than likely had illegal drugs in the truck and wasn't going to stop anywhere till he could hide them well. This child is the collateral damage that is seen in Kansas City's lack of getting tough on crime and drug activity. But when you live in a city more concerned with building shiny new things over dealing with crime you can just expect a lot more collateral damage such as this. Kansas City's top cop Chief Bernard "Barney" P. Milton Oliver Fife knows where and what is going on in that town as he has been a police officer to long not to know such or is so stupid he should not be in the position he is in.

Facts are facts, time to deal with them.

I'm sure local yokels will acknowledge the problem just as soon as someone gets around to writing a report. Right now they are limited on how many homicides KC is allowed to have each month. They are trying to catch up before the bodies rot. In the mean time they are carried as justified police shootings.

The three bullet holes that I can see look like they were intended for the driver, it doesn’t look like stray fire caught between two vehicles to me, there is more to this story than meets the eye
