You guys really know how to drag this forum down...way down. It's not that it should be ignored, but it's not like this board can solve it either. The bottom line is that the constant discussion is scaring people away or makes them overly concerned about moving here - when most of it happens on the E Side.

This board has more people from the outside looking to visit/move to KC than there are people who live in KC on this board. Yet the representation is very skewed towards crime problems on the E Side.
If you don't like it don't post in these threads, end of story.

Liberals believe if you re-label something people will forget about it. It would seem Mayor James is attempting to address the "no snitch" practices which allow crimes in such areas to continue to perpetuate. Until that time it won't matter what name/label is on a street. Silly non-solution to re-name a street thinking that will make the well earned bad reputation of an area go away.

lol! I live 2 blocks off of MLK Blvd. here in Denver. They extended MLK to the east through the Stapleton re-development. It runs through neighborhoods with houses up to and over a million dollars. We joke that we have the nicest MLK Blvd. in the country.

haha, check out mlk in baltimore!

Why not just swap names. Rename Ward Parkway to Prospect and Prospect to Ward Parkway. That should do the trick!
