that cant be right. I think KETV means 72nd and pacific 's wal-mart


(sarcasm noted below

after all, no crime ever happens in west omaha especially at 180th street ( & a mile from MILLARD WEST high school).


maybe the snooty folks who work at or graduated from Millard West high school should sue KETV for defaming the wal-mart a mile from their school

Again, they were caught and arrested. West Omaha is safe and peace was restored.

And yet it was a domestic. Not gang related, not random - the father shot at the daughter's boyfriend if I have my facts straight.

Yeah but those facts don't matter to these guys when it's something that happens east of 72nd street.

Yes the crime did happen, but the bad guys are in jail. How many crimes happen over there and are cold case's?


That is why west O is safer than the other parts of the city.

Sunday night two gang bangers were shot in NO. police show up. The gang bangers did not give any info to help the cops catch the shooters.
That is the difference.

Some people on this board are so hell-bent on trying convince themselves that there's no difference in risk living east of 72nd than west, that they actually put their fantasy in writing.

Now I'm not saying that east of 72nd is a combat zone. Even at its worst, Omaha is much better than most metropolitan areas. But if someone is reading this board attempting to make a life affecting decision on where to live and considers crime to be a major factor, these posts are at the very least, misleading, and at the very worst, downright dangerous. The facts are the facts and the vast majority of violent crime takes place east of 72nd. The key phrase is vast majority. I didn't say exclusive. Yes, violent crime does take place in West O. It's just takes place at a much lower level of incidence.

alta joe, you are right, but many millard folks and even

Millard South and Millard West and to some extent Burke High and Westside High grads and staff members

love to drum up the east of 72nd street is all scary crap to make people go to their schools and buy businesses only in west omaha

it is a scare tactic on one part of the city of omaha and it has to stop

billie, that is equally wrong. But, trumpeting the odd incident in West O isn't the answer.
