I lived in that town for ten years, I left in 88... it was stupidly violent then, a little Detroit on the plains. Pretty clear things are business as usual....

I've lived in Wichita most of my life. I was born there.

Wichita is the site of the infamous Carr Brothers murders and sometimes out-of-control gang violence which has killed dozens in the last 20 years.

Can't forget BTK either.

The violence had SHARPLY decreased the last 5 years or so and it looked like the police may have gotten a handle on it.

I moved to the suburbs 3 years ago because of the influx of (non-English speaking) latinos in my neighborhood.

Wichita has one of the best economies in the country, Aerospace is booming here right now. Quite a few high-paying jobs, but quite a few TERRIBLE Neighborhoods. I grew up in probably one of the worst.

Sounds like those Kansas farm boys have too much time on their hands.
