I love a Happy Ending! :)
About 30,000 more of these kinds of incidents and KC will be all safe to live in again.
Another Trayvon bites the dust.
Two problems with this comment from the story: 1. The criminal was not the victim, the homeowner was!!! 2. No one suffers life-threatening injuries and then dies. They suffer mortal injuries and then they die.
Geez, you can't even trust reporters from FOX to get it right.
I love a story that ends well!
Way to go Dad!
Apparently the perp had been trying to elude police for several hours. He’d stolen two cars already - driving through a garage door to escape with one of them - and just chose the wrong house to try and steal his third car from.
“About 30,000 more of these kinds of incidents and KC will be all safe to live in again.”
Really? It’s that bad in KC? I feel sorry for the decent people there if that’s the case.
I have never felt unsafe in KC, I don't live there anymore but go back a couple of times a year. There are some parts of town that are a bit dicey, but nothing like Chicago, or Detroit.
KC and STL areas of MO always vote liberal (even the dead) and voted against CCW. Those about the only 2 places in the state I ever feel the need to carry.
We live in the ‘burbs’ and we just don’t go to Kansas City anymore. 74 killed so far this year, 5 more than this time last year. All the KC Mayor does is wring his hands and whine that he can’t enact stricter gun control.
It is sad. So many tax dollars spent under a federal judge’s order to improve the schools, so much spent on activities and programs for the ‘disadvantaged’ and it was all for nothing. And so many decent people stuck in neighborhoods that are deteriorating around them.
I grew up in South KC (went to Center), it was a nice place to live back then, my folks moved out to Lee's Summit 20 years ago, to get away from the declining neighborhood.
There is still hope for KC, it has always been a culturally diverse, and tolerant town.
SHOTGUN? Cleanup on aisle three!
They still suffer the legacy of Pendergast.
Another day, another Trayvon. One fewer thug to feed food stamps.
