It is amazing people still leave valuables in locked cars sitting outside. The car locks only deter good people and not thieves who do not care whether the car is locked.

Security cameras do not solve stupidity and responsibility of people. People need to wise up and not leave anything in a car parked outside that a thief could use.

I don’t live in killa shitty, never will, you guys have the worst mayor, city clowncil and city manager ever. Why you all put up with the high crime, murder, taxes, and water bills is beyond me. The only thing that affects me is your worthless prosecutor petersucker, she has allowed these murderous blacks to spread their crime wave all over the metropolitan area. She is allowing innocents to be hurt or killed through her incompetence.

You people are idiots.

8:38 the only reason these punks got caught is they broke into a police car, that’s embarrassing, the police actually did their job because one of their own was incredibly stupid and left some shit in his car he shouldn’t have.

Just imagine if they worked this hard for us taxpayers, it would be amazing wouldn’t it!

Slie prefers the rolling gun battles. That way if someone is killed the murder has already rolled out of Slie's downtown utopia and the narrative will be it did not happen downtown.

Cops who leave weapons and tasers in their cars overnight should lose their jobs. It happens far too often that they fall into the hands of violent criminals.

@8:42AM Why are you here then? You must be one tremendous loser. If you hate the city so much, why are you on here (a blog about KC) EVERY SINGLE DAY? God, is this what old lonely losers do with their worthless days? You are so pathetic.

8:42 has a good point! But what he/she doesn't know is K.C. is full of loser liberals who are extremely stupid people! This is why I moved out of K.C. and only buy properties to sell to these idiots who over pay for them. You can't go wrong with that.

If you moved, why do you keep coming back? You sound lonely and boring. You are also pathetic.
