Jackson county says....

I was looking to buy a house on the northeast side in February to fix and flip and before I got a chance to look at it, it caught fire, now both the owners are dead and it was vacant plus the family members don’t want it especially now after the fire, I was thinking even after the fire that I might still get it until I saw those clueless idiot at Jackson county raised the taxes on a burned up house $20,000. Who in the hell is in charge over there? These have to be the dumbest mofo’s in the land, wait, what? It’s a black woman? Jesus Christ where do these idiots come from. KCPS? That explains everything.
