Kansas City, MO –

  • The Johnson County Sheriff's office conducted a raid today on what officers say is a cockfighting operation at a house about 8 miles west of Olathe. Deputies confiscated about 170 fighting roosters and a large amount of cash.
  • Justice Department figures show Missouri as one of 8 states with declining prison populations.
    Judges say the improvement is in part because of a program that focuses on individual recidivism risk factors.
