You know Raytown has not gotten this much run on the news for some time, they must be very proud,I wonder what is different there from say 10 to 20 years ago that may be causing these problems.

I must have missed one of the murders. I believe there have only been four this year. First was Shu, shot while putting her children on the bus. Then the wife killed by the crack addict. This one and the one a week and a half ago. Who was the fifth?

One of the other networks has the victims name, Andre Bess. Appears he lived at 37th and Wabash just last year. That's a real nice area. I suspect maybe your answer is the KCMO inner city folks escaping to lower income housing in the likes of Raytown. Unfortunately I know all too much about these Raytown murders and there is a definate connection with the ghetto in most all of them. Go ahead, beat me up for picking on the ghetto but it can't just be coincidence.

Yes but you tend to get in trouble for stating the obvious now days. I chose my words carefully.

I don't get it---why does no one else see what they do to an area(any area)that they decide to over run. Just look-any where they go is soon turned to trash. I would not move back to Raytown, even though the Chamber of Commerce keeps saying they are rebuilding. Too little too late.

Oh for heaven sakes no. Do not state the obvious because if you do you will be labeled a racist, hater or whatever lable they would put on you to put down the truth of what is realllly going on in Raytown. This has got to end, but it won't. As times get harder and our government cannot afford to support the multiple generations of welfare recipents, our jails will fill to beyond the overflow capacity level it is at now and these thugs will be running the streets looking for someone to rob and something to steal. Thank the good government folks which has allowed this to the breaking point of no return.

aside from the obvious that is stated below, used to be you got pulled over for anything in Raytown. Perhaps if we go back to being that way, it would push out the "bad seeds".

I couldn't agree more on the demise of Raytown. There are several areas that are looking just like Ruskin Heights not so long ago. To make matters worse, Obama is extending his $8,000 credit for first time home buyers to September so look out.

I also agree on getting accused of being racist for commenting on any of the murders in this metro. In almost every case there is a black or hispanic killer and/or victim. Same thing for all of the shootings.

It's really sad so few cause so many to judge a group of individuals that are predominantly good people. I will admit though, it's hard not to blame the race when it's in your face every single day. I suppose it's not much different than blaming all Middle Easterners for our terrorism situation. These NAACP folks need to quit crying foul and divert their efforts to doing something about the real cause.

Are you all saying this was probably a black person? That would be shocking. Must be those whities killing blacks, right Alonzo?

Wow.... this is truly sad; Andre is dead and cannot even get any respect. It would be nice if you knew more about the victim before saying that the "inner city folks escaping to lower income housing in the likes of Raytown" or that he moved and turned the area to trash.

No actually it would bring in more bad seeds called "activists" or "advacates" or "community organizers" (the real racists)

I definitely dont think it is just 1 person turning the city to trash! You know I myself sometimes wonder about the crime in town thinking about the parents who moved their children and families out to Raytown from the inner city to escape the gangs and crime only to have it here as well! Where are the PARENTS??????? I know some kids don't have any real true people to look up to but some do and it's those parents/guardians that need to step up and make sure your kids can do better than the kids that they surround themselves with! You can't fix everyone or blame a string of crimes on 1 person when there are many who could take their own responsibility in the recent events! If you want to state the obvious though like what had been mentioned earlier than here it is..... I could almost guarantee that the people moving into town and causing problems didn't move to Raytown from Lee's summit! Just saying!

The demise of Raytown is a bit harsh. The things going on in Raytown are horrible and I hope they end before the demise of Raytown. I don't know the details on this one as of yet but the others have been intended victims. As sad as that may be. 2 of the 4 were domestic.

On the getting pulled over, I do not mean because you are black white or purple. I mean a strong police presence would help keep out the "bad seeds". The "bad seeds" are just that, not meaning a race. If you are into drugs or other bad things the hopes of the police presence would stop that from coming in.

Raytown is a diverse city and honestly that's one of the things that I appreciate about it. It's also not all lower income, it's a nice quiet community that unfortunately has no room to grow. And I agree with Amber that we don't know anything about Andre, and who he was and am sorry for his family. Maybe he moved to make a better life for himself.

I believe all 4 homicides have been in rental properties. Perhaps the buying of homes would be more benificial than the rental of the homes. These problems are going on all over the metro, it's only certain ones that make the news. It's amazing how much Lee's Summit keeps out of the news.

I don't think Lee's summit "keeps "out of the news! Raytown was doing a pretty good job of "keeping" it's self out of the news up until this year! Look how much Overland Park is in the news for drugs , robbery, kidnapping.......... and If anywhere around has the power to "keep" out of the news I'm sure good old OP could do it! So don't make it sound like were just getting a bad rap! When you start placing blame elsewhere thats when it's hard to fix the problem at hand!
