^^Would be nice to see you do something other than jump on a blog to complain about others who actually matter and are doing something. I'm sorry you failed at life and have nothing better to do, but please do it elsewhere as you are totally boring and worthless on every level. Run along now simp.

This is all the same old constantly regurgitated local media newz we see all the time here. Same old garbage in a brand new bag.

I'm not saying it's Tony's fault just an observation.

Two of the ideas Hall said she is excited to share with others about Kansas City is how the police department added social workers to each station and increased the number of Community Interaction Officers.

Um this approach failed during the 90's crack epidemic here in KCMO and has continued to fail miserably.

It's not a failure to the social workers! They get a steady paycheck without ever having to prove that their input does any good.
