Shades of Steve Utash

Cincinnati

The difference is that Steve Utash was lucky enough to survive, and eventually recover, and return to work.  Not only that, his assailants were caught and convicted, even as they got slap on the hand punishments.

This one?  He personally wasn’t so lucky, and who knows if these perps will ever be caught.

Here’s why I’m jumping to conclusions about said perps.

POLICE: CHICAGO TEEN APPARENTLY GANG-RAPED ON FACEBOOK LIVE

A 15-year-old Chicago girl was apparently sexually assaulted by five or six men or boys on Facebook Live, and none of the roughly 40 people who watched the live video reported the attack to police, authorities said Tuesday.

Emphasis added, because Bell Curve City.





Battle of Theodosia

21 03 2017

Wells-Goodfellow

Even though the most dangerous boulevard in the country is close by, this happened right off another major boulevard whose name screams ghetto.

I’m sure this battle so whack and so off the hook that it will be the stuff of legend for generations.  It will be the basis of many an OGs’ big fish stories.

“Ugly side of St. Louis,” so saith James Clark.  But wait, what about no judgmentalism?





MissingLink Strikes Again

ESL and Downtown

Here, here and here.  It started on the other side of the river and made its way to the stop at Busch.  Usual suspects.

The third link reminds us that the city is hitting voters up for a sales tax to raise the funds that will do the political pump priming to leverage the bigger public money needed to build North-South, which I referenced here a few days ago.  And they’ll be voting with this news fresh on their minds.

 





Right Last Name

Normandy

It gets interesting in the middle:

Federal court documents show she started her scheme in 2014. Outlaw “requested tenants of Lucas Hunt to submit all rent payments to her and to make all money orders payable to her.” She’d then deposit the money orders into her personal bank and use the money for her own personal benefit “and proceed to evict tenants from Lucas Hunt while knowing she had actually stolen these tenants rent payments and that these tenants had indeed paid their rent in full and in a timely manner.”

Then, ironically:

Fox 2 News discovered Outlaw was sued in the City of St. Louis last year for not paying her own rent. Rent-A-Center also sued her in 2015 for not paying for her leased furniture.

She’s going to go where she deserves, and thankfully, the Feds are prosecuting, which far decreases the odds of a Bronx jury screwing things up.  However, I also have to put this in the file of “If God did not want them to be sheared, He would not have made them sheep.”  The tenants who are victims must be dumb as rocks.  Not a one of them got suspicious when someone who openly identifies herself as an employee of the property management firm that maintains these apartments and interacts with tenants, and not the actual individual or corporate owner of the real estate and edifices (the actual landlord(s)), asks them not only to pay rent in money orders, (money orders are often a distinguishing characteristic of criminal conspiracy, because it’s extremely difficult for the cops to put together a paper trail out of them), but write them out payable to her as an individual?  The first tenant to whom she made this demand should have called McCulloch’s office.  They would have tracked down the actual landlord(s), and from there, the tree would have been shaken until she got fired.

One more thing:  If you follow the main drag where these apartments are, take it north, go to the first major stoplight, then turn a left, and follow that for a short distance and then down a hill, guess where you are.





The Closed Case Whose Door Won’t Stay Shut

16 03 2017

Ferguson

Last week, we had the startling but irrelevant revelation that GENTILIVUS GIANTIVUS was a small time weed dealer, and therefore, the morning counter clerk at the Ferguson Market mistakenly thought he was stealing from the store.

Now, we have this yadda yadda.

Which still doesn’t change the circumstances of the last three minutes of the life of GENTILIVUS GIANTIVS.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear certain people and institutions wanted more rioting on the Fergaza Strip.





Grieving Girlfriend

8 03 2017

St. Paul, Minnesota

Look what the girlfriend of the late Philando Castile (who, incidentally, was buried at Calvary on the north side) has been up to lately.

Two things are true about your blogmeister:

(1) I have a logical and reasonable mind, and I’m as good as anyone when it comes to informal propositional logic, and pretty good in other forms of logic.

(2) Professionally, among other things, I do PR.

These two things lead me to respective but contradictory conclusions about this story:

(1) It is fallacious to write anything or to fill in the open questions about the Philando Castile case because of the very recent antics of his girlfriend.

(2) Most people will do that anyway, that this is the kind of woman he (supposedly) had as a love interest will make people side eye him, more and more people will jump off his bandwagon and onto the cop’s bandwagon.

Speaking of the cop, in case you haven’t already seen a pic of the cop, there is one in this video.
