The firefighters should be raising money for brain injuries and head trauma. Bad business in Raytown,

The endangered buildings are endangered because of the crime in the city and also because there are some neighbors in the area mainly Hyde Park that make it a point to run people off when they have helped the neighborhood by restoring those homes. Some of that gang over there have really hurt the city and are very nasty about anyone trying to help the community. Really sad.
