It was a group of three black people that killed this man just like the other 80 out of 100 black murderers in KCMO. Yes there are plenty of white murderers but not in KCMO. Wake up!
I'm am very much awake!! I still don't believe that the actions off 3 should be held against the whole. Until people are held accountable for their actions individually, nothing will change! Stop blaming the economy!! Stop blaming the race!! It was a group of 3 making a cowardly move! Those 3 should be punished! And believe me I believe in a strong punishment! If the punishment fit the crime more often and people were fearful of the justice that would be handed down then crime would go down! This is not a race issue!!

Come on. You know, I know, all of Kansas City knows it. What is going on in South K.C. is a black problem. That area was once thriving. The blacks came in like a cancer and destroyed the whole area. They consumed Benjamin Plaza. They are like a plague.

Does anyone feel that it was unneccesary to put the video on the news lastnight? I can't belive Fox 4 would do this, especially with what the family of the victim are going through. If they deemed it neccessary to provide information about the suspects, why not just show their faces?

Yes, I for one do not want to have to relive the last moments of someone I know over and over.

Why is the 7 eleven franchise making it so that the owner of the store is unable to protect his employees? If you notice the store across the street has bullet proof glass an alarm ect. Why is it that 7 eleven gets robbed every other week and the franchise it's self will not take the proper measures to protect the franchisee and its employees?

You may not like it but there is an issue with the black community in Kansas City. I clearly understand that there are a majority of the 150,000 blacks in the city that are good people. The problem is you have about 15% of them driving every single crime statistic above the national and Missouri average. Until the community as a "whole" does something about it, it will only get worse. Look at things like how many of these children grow up with one parent. How many of these kids have three or four half siblings with no father. How many of the parents are felons and/or criminals? How many are really attending school and are actually literate. It is very alarming. Congrats to those doing the right thing. Good luck!

Not just the store across the street but every other convenience store in the area has the glass and auto lock on the doors and they aren't even open 24 hours like the 7-11. There is another 7-11 at 107th and Blue Ridge, they also do not have any protective devices. The Corporation as a whole should be looked at for lack of safety to their employees. I know I wouldn't work for them!

......and there isn't an issue in the area????? Damn, now it's the Corporations fault for not having enough security in this black hood. They should have known better, I agree. Get out of their hood and let them kill each other without interference.

WOW I can't believe this and I knew the victim very well and he would never talk about people in such a manner. This has nothing to do with race it was a senseless act and no matter where you live are where you are at rather it be Lees Summit, Overland Park, or the inner city as you say it can very well happen anywhere. Wake up and stop acting so stupid.

We can't. The tree huggers and thug lovers make it impossible to do our jobs. If we're to rough on one of these piece of s**t thugs and it ends up on the news, the tree/thug lovers come out of the wood work. The story turns into police brutality and no one cares about what the criminal did to deserve it. Our chief would rather fire us than stand up to the crybabies. The tree/thug lovers have accepted violent crime and would rather see a police officer fired than a murderer get his **** kicked by the police. You might as well accept it and do what you need to do to protect yourselves. I used to love this job and feel like I was making a difference until I realized the courts weren't doing thier jobs and I kept arresting the same people over and over again for felonies. And then I realized our higher ups won't stick up for us and they'll throw us under the bus even if we didn't do anything wrong. Watching things happen on T.V. doesn't ammount to what we're facing on the street at the time of the incident. I'm the one with my life on the line and I have to make a split second decision, but nope, now I have to add an extra second because I don't want it to look bad on tape. I hate to say this, and trust me I'm not proud, but we aren't giving you the police service you deserve. We are all in fear of losing our jobs on any given call. I know alot of other officers do the same thing, but I don't go out and pro-actively look for crime like I should. It's not worth it. This is our career, how we feed our family's. I'm not going to lose my job over some thug that's going to get out the same night anyway. I make a few easy traffic stops and answer my calls. Enough to make my Sgt. happy and me out of trouble. Like I said, I'm not proud, but it's reality. I love being a go getter, but I have a wife and kids and I'm to old to start a new career. Now just because I don't do as much as like, that doesn't mean I'm not going to give you good service, just don't expect me to put my neck out there for the tree/thug lovers to chop off. I'm more worried about getting in trouble than I am getting shot and believe me, I'm not alone. I don't want to be the one on CNN getting caught on camera punching a poor misled murderer in the face because he's still fighting us. Not me, I'll take the safe route. I'm sorry to the people that support us, but my family has to eat too and the chief doesn't listen to you he listens to the liberals.
I agree with this response until the Judges start working for the tax payer responsible Men and Women of all race's we are a lost country. People want to be free but we can't be free is we have to come up against this.

I'm interested in knowing what 7-11's accountability is in the murder of an on-duty employee alone in the store. Were safely procedures followed? If so, will there be changes in the safety and accountability of staff members working late night and/or in poor neighborhoods? Gupreet (Tony) Singh was a friend of our family. I know the shooter will get caught and will pay a price (hopefully of equal value). But the other two folks in the store also should be head accountable to murder. This I think all agree on. But, back to my question.... What is 7-Eleven's responsibility???? Their CEO was just on "Under Cover Boss" a few weeks ago on CBS. Really... What is the fix here? A change HAS to happen! Can YOU find any answers?

This is an outrage that one of ours was murdered. He worked in our community. In our neighborhood!!!!! He served some of us on a daily basis!!! Please come together for this man and his family.
Someone out there knows who did this and if they don't come forward, they are just as guilty of murder, the taken of a human life, a Father and a son. Please come forward for this man and the horrible crime that has been committed.
We must stand up as a community and as neighbors and let these criminals know, we will not tolarate this anymore and that they are not welcome in our community.
I strongly agree.

To Fed Up: You cannot blame the parents. People who grew up in great family environments committ murder all the time.

South Kansas city is basically gone. I grew up on 100th terr. Around the mid-nineties my parents moved toward the Lees Summit area (as many people from that area do) because the neighborhood and area as a whole was going downhill. I get choked up everytime I drive by Bannister mall. I cannot believe what has happened to what used to be a very desirable area to live. Meanwhile, our local government is attempting to "revitalize" the area. That is such a joke. They have absolutely no intention of building that area back up. They dangled the Bass Pro and soccer stadium idea over our heads like a steak for a starving dog. This area will never be the same. Every idea that could bring money to the area will always go to affluent neighborhoods.

I agree. People are too afraid of being pegged a racist, but the facts speak for themselves. Black communities across the nation are full of crime. Why can't we admit this? Poverty seems to be a huge factor. Where there is poverty there will be crime. Simple solution: raise wages nationwide. While wealthy people do committ crime, they are far less likely to than a poor man. Crime has been on the rise since the 80's and wages have been dropping. Correlation? You bet.

Of course not. The clerk wasn't dark enough. Only black people can file hate crimes. Remember when those two white city hall employees were let go and they sued for "reverse racism"? What a joke.

What did that poster say that wasn't true? Stats do not lie. What caused the fall of the Bannister area? Please tell me. I'm all ears. Are all black people bad? Of course not. Please stop living your life in denial and join the rest of the world in grownupville. Maybe then we can do something to prevent future occurrences.

That is true, but statistically they committ more crime. Do all black people rob gas stations? Of course not. That doesn't mean that blacks committ less crime that other races. A small percentage of the US population and over 80% of prison and county/city jail population. Please stop living in denial just because you are afraid of being called a racist.
