I absolutely love living in the Black Jack, MO area. I've lived in this neighborhood for over 5 years now. Its very quiet, peaceful, with lots of beautiful greenery in our back yards. I live in a small, very quiet subdivision where I feel extremely safe & the neighbors are very friendly. My children have many close friends that they've grown to love. I can't imagine another area to live & raise my children! And not to mention we have a beautiful family of deer that tend to roam our back yard from time to time & we absolutely love it!

My overall experience in this area has not really changed throughout the years living here. However, crime has rapidly increased beginning with the Michael Brown situation and there has not been any justice with the African American community. I honestly believe that the safety has decreased due to police brutality, but the people that live in the area are extremely positive and have made me feel like I can count on the community to make a change.

Crime in the area is horrible and things have gotten worse. When I first moved here there were no problems but overall, the community has had an outrage with the responsibility of the police as a whole.
