I wouldn’t investigate any case in Jackson County very hard as long as Jean Petersucker Baker is the prosecutor. Jean Petersucker Baker is the worst and weakest prosecutor ever. Jean Petersucker Baker is the criminals best friend.

I see reporter's corrected their headline about the guy shot at 18th Kansas. No mention of 18th Vine this time.

Kansas City Police identify hit and run victim...killed by a Black person. Probably in his 20's. He should get severe punishment for his disregard for others. Black people never want to take personal responsibility for anything. How do I know, I am Black and have to endure this non-sense in interactions with other Black people. This is our biggest problem... personal responsibility and does what is humanly proper. The video shows a driver trying to find a hiding spot for his severely disabled vehicle. What a coward.
