  1. Criminals fighting with criminals, and also protecting each other. And Columbia’s liberal policies, regarding how crime and criminals, are dealt with, is why Columbia has the problems, it now has. Liberal Judges need to be removed. It won’t get better until the community steps up. Eventually, good people are going to get hurt.

    1. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the size of the city or the fact that it’s dead center between two major crime areas (KC and STL) on a road that connects the two. But keep chriping the latest craze you heard from Alex Jones and Shaun Hannity. Your age shows in your comments. Thank God your generation will be gone soon. Then the rest of the world can finally move on without your lunacy.

      1. Your comments, blame everything on Black people. Blacks did not cause this. There are many things that caused this, stupid thinking like yours, is just one of those reasons. Your other comments reinforce, this lack of knowledge and forethought.
