In Big Fur, KC director Dan Wayne chronicles a taxidermist's attempt to take on Bigfoot

Alan Alda once advised, "Never Have Your Dog Stuffed." But as KC-based director Dan Wayne's new documentary Big Fur demonstrates, the M*A*S*H star may have simply visited the wrong taxidermist.

Latinos in Belton...well thats fine. Looks like a good family in the news article. I wonder if the surge in hispanics though is linked to the increase in shootings and crime. Kind of like what happened to Olathe with bladed weapon attacks on the rise.

^^^ Weren’t those things related to the Somali population in Olathe?

Yes, the Somali population is much more problematic than the Mexicans.

Oh yeah the Somalis are in Olathe but the Latinos outnumber them greatly now. There are entire neighborhoods in west olathe completely Hispanic. It’s a perfect spot for them to get to coming up i35 from mehico. One time I went into a Latino store to try some food and I was the only gringo in there and everyone stared at me like I was an alien.

Id be more worried about the Somalis working at the county jail in kcmo. Lots of homosexual rapes have happened under their watch.

If you're Latino in Belton you had better be legal, and not gang members or criminals if you are we are locked and loaded and will take care of you, it's that simple. Otherwise you have nothing to worry about. I'm sick of our cops acting like pussies and we are ready to take matters into our own hands!!!!!
