  1. who was the contractor at umkc?

  2. YES! Re-open Southwest High School so more girls can be sexually abused and raped! The school has been a mess since 1974 when the judge gave KCSD over a BILLION dollars and just made poor decision after poor decision.
    Local lawyer Arthur Benson is one of the names that caused this and he should be run out of town. Send him to the ozarks where people "know how to deal with his kind". Another liberal dumbass that keeps spouting off from time to time his bullshit. He ruined the KCSD in a one man marching band, promised everything would be better and nothing good has come of it.
    The only good proposal for this old school was when Acadamie Layfayette offered to buy it and renovate it and bring quality education back to it. And the KCSD was too stupid to take the offer.
