SUBURBAN TRANSITION: OVERLAND PARK CONFRONTS RISING CRIME!!!



Here's a look at the continued spate of violence escalating in Johnson County as residents hope to thwart evolving demographics, radical change in housing stock, rising income disparity along with an increasingly burdened justice system -- Issues that plague communities throughout the metro and the nation but have yet to garner any easy fix.

Take a look:

KMBC: Overland Park police address crime with community after recent violent crimes

KCTV5: After the latest murder another teenager was shot and a third person was stabbed near the same Overland Park neighborhood.

Fox4: Grandmother of Overland Park teen shot and paralyzed shares frustrations at community meeting

Channel 9: Man charged with killing 17-year-old in Overland Park

The answer is easy. Move to Leawood if you have the money. If not, buy a better door lock, think about Tonganoxie and stop crying if it's not your kid that got killed.

The differences between OP and KCMO are:
Overland Park has a actual city government where elected officials make services like public safety a high priority.
Residents in OP will work closely with the police and each other in the neighborhoods and share information.
Johnson County prosecutors will bring serious charges which will result in serious consequences.
The make-believe "gangstas" will need to find other places to act out.
Hint: It's to the east.

Section 8 people. It fucks up any neighborhood. This is exactly why in the next 10 years, Lawrence and southern Leavenworth county with be the most sought after areas. The people in kansas will also redraw the political map by doing such.

JOCO is tougher on crime. A good example is Kyle James. Saying "do you know who I am, who my daddy is" doesn't cut it there.

And now fools in Shawnee want to build a "communitee centre"--really a rec center featuring contact sports. In the closest place for teens to hang out when Legends Outlet Mall and Cinemark and Oak Park boot them out. In the most upscale part of western Shawnee. And don't have a clue that might be a problem.

Shawnee rec center? Name it Kum Bay Yah Center. Say goodbye to your resale values in western Shawnee....

Apartments don't commit crime. Tenants do.

There is no more Section 8, technically. In their wisdom, the AOC socialism-for-all feds just write a rent voucher to low income people, and they can then rent an apartment or a small house anywhere a landlord who just wants a tenant will accept it.

This disperses poverty across the land, as opposed to concentrated ghettos and tenements like the old Pruitt Igoe in St. Louis or the projects east of downtown KCMO.

You can't just go to overland or go up north anymore to get away from the ghetto it's everywhere. You have to move 100 miles away thanks to the liberal nutjob Democraps.

I thought the answer for everything was "Build A Wall".

7:44---i'm disabled and on Sec. 8 and live in a nice complex in O.P,. We rarely ever have an incident and then if we do it's not violent I pay all my own bills, receive no State aid because my disability income is $850 per year too much to qualify for any so your argument is not entirely valid.

wheelchair guy said...

7:44---FYI as of this morning the Sec. 8 waiting period in Johnson Co. to receive a Sec. 8 voucher is 42 months..

Buy more guns and make sure you are proficient with them. Aim for center mass. If you get a chance to shoot a hood rat, don’t fuck it up. The chickenshit police aren’t going to help you.

9:06 Sorry, but you don't pay all your own bills.

My diaper you guys!!! It's so full right now, I can't even!!!!

wheelchair guy said...

9:16---Valid point. The u.S. Govt. pays 60% of my rent. other than that I pay everything else.

Diversity cones to the suburbs. There is no escape. You can run from it, but you can't hide. Might as well accept it.

Keep gentrifying the city and drive the hoodrats out to the burbs. There are more people with guns in the burbs and more cameras. Also, hoodrats don't have bulletproof skulls. Aim for the heads like they are walkers. Listen Carl....

Section 8 kills places like Olathe. People at this meeting asking why when they should know better. Rising diversity, rising crime.

Earlier poster is right on southern Leavenworth County. Leavenworth the city has very bad crime for being just 35,000 people.

West or just south of town Lawrence is nice. North Lawrence has some problems. Leawood and Stilwell are great. West Lenexa has developed well with good policing and low crime.

I grew up 11 blocks straight south, mom still lives there. I knew plenty of kids who lived in apartments and duplexes, I would say all had divorced parents. All were white. And there's your difference. Single white JOCO mom's back in the 70's and 80s were good parents, they had demands and expectations of their kids. None of the kids I knew are in prison. Black people ruin everything they touch.

512 is right. For anyone who wants to say it’s racist, I challenge you to name any area that blacks infiltrated that maintained or improved. You can’t. Blacks could move into Mission Hills and in six months it would be like Grandview with large houses. It’s just what they do.

Just read the Star’s article on the meeting. The article reflects the downward slide in the quality of the news media. We are replacing experienced news people with offshore contractors and poorly-vetted AI software.

Make OP a “sundown town” and it would do wonders for this problem.
