Regarding the goldendoodle falling five stories to the sidewalk--I feel so bad for the owner and the dog. The barrier needs to be higher than 3 feet 8 inches, period. It's in the P& L district,where taxpayers make up $15 million in unpaid rent from Cordish. If Cordish won't fix this, the city needs to. A full sized 60 lb. goldendoodle could fall on a pedestrian and kill them. Someone, maybe the owner, write the city--alert it to an "Attractive Nuisance". Do that in writing. So if someone is injured thereafter, and the city was informed IN WRITING of an unaddressed attractive nuisance, then the next victim can sue AND COLLECT from the city. That is how it works.

As opposed to it usually being impossible to sue the city and collect. The Attractive Nuisance clause.

if the owner of the first dead dog had done this, perhaps the barrier would have been raised, and this dog's death avoided.

Dogs belong in dog parks and at home. Grow up, dog owners are getting as spoiled as bicyclists and gays.

Why does an Independence police officer shot in the line of duty (by friendly fire no less) have to get charity???

The city should be paying 100% of his medical and rehab expenses + plus his ongoing salary and benefits.

Yet they are proud to PR this donation to the local news. Absolutely disgraceful.
