Another shooting at a Walmart?

Forget the hysteria over the Crossroads. It's Walmarts nationwide that are no go zones.

Looks like Shawnee likes reelecting losers back for another term. Would have thought after the community building disaster and trying to steal others properties the voters would have wanted this lady out of office.

But the SMP sure sucks up to her, but that is just another loser backing another loser.

Raymore the new Raytown.

Raymore has been the new Raytown for a couple of years, especially at that WalMart where loss rates are 15% - 25%. I just wish there was some common factor that could be identified that leads to the downfall of neighborhoods and Cities. I used to live a 5 minute walk from that store. Its just so senseless and unexplainable.
