1.) Mike Brown is getting a plaque in his honor on Canfield to replace the mold infested stuffed animal pit that is currently there both in the middle of the street and on the adjacent sidewalk.
2.) Protesters showed up at St. Louis City Prosecutor, Jennifer Joyce’s residence a few mornings ago in reference to a report released by her office that the evidence supported the conclusion that Vonderitt Myers shot at the St. Louis City Officer who killed him and thusly charges would not be filed for a objectively justified incident. Among the arrested protesters was commenter on this blog, Elizabeth Vega.
3.) I fear that the End of Watch posts will become far too frequent this year so I’ve made a dedicated page to the fallen. You can reach it in the menu on the left-hand side of the page. I will make a short post whenever it is updated. Unfortunately, the page already has two new additions from earlier incidents.
4.) In case anyone was wondering, crime has been a little out of control lately. Two nights ago, Normandy had a gun related homicide. A night ago, a party in Kinloch was attacked by a drive-by style attack resulting in four people injured by gunfire. The city continues to see nightly incidents of people struck or killed with gunfire. The county continues to see nightly incidents of shots fired. If you can avoid it, I would stay away from the area at and around North Hanley Metrolink after dark. A fight, robbery, or shooting seems to take place every night.
5.) I read the dumbest article of the moment a few hours ago on STLToday.com, the Post Dispatch’s website.
A couple of obvious distinctions:
- The bulk of the participants of the massacre in Waco, both tacit and active, have been ARRESTED and CHARGED with serious crimes.
- After the gunfight was over, the bulk surrendered.
- The Media hasn’t been bending over backwards lying about the extent of the shooting and trying to excuse what violence they were unable to ignore. Case in point, there is a blatantly incorrect statement in the middle of the article that there were no fatalities in Ferguson and Baltimore. I can’t speak for Baltimore but DeAndre Joshua’s family would probably dispute the claim in reference to Ferguson.
