It could be his prison nickname.

“Senselessless,” says the DA.  “Bell Curve City,” says the snarky blogger.

Carondelet

Two different versions of the same story.

Once upon a time, the chapters of the St. Louis Area Citizens Councils held its annual picnic in Carondelet Park.

Really, the area around the park is very nice, the houses around there are selling for increasingly gawdy prices.  The problem is the neighborhood that flanks the park along Holly Hills from Grand to the east is starting to get bellcurvey, and the biggie is the new YMCA in the park itself, as Francis Slay promised us that recreation centers deter violent crime.





It’s a Sacrifice, I Know

Promising boxer killed in south St. Louis

Shots rang out in south St. Louis early Saturday morning leaving a local professional boxer dead.

Because in Bell Curve City, dindus never shoot guns.  Shots just ring out, out of the blue, or should that be black?

St. Louis city police have identified the victims as 26-year-old Michael Williams.

Fox those who knew the victim, they say he had a promising career ahead of him as a boxer.

By age 26, if he isn’t already big time in the boxing universe, then he’ll never be.

Reportedly Williams had just left the Chunky Boy Bar and Grill located in the 2900 block of South Jefferson around 1 a.m. when he was attacked.

People with any sort of promise or future wouldn’t be hanging around that area at that time of night.  Even though it’s on the edge between gentrified, expensive and white to the east and Bell Curve City to the west, with Jefferson Avenue itself being the dividing line.  And to beat all, this establishment is across Jefferson from a fire house.

Williams’s trainer says he worked hard everyday training in the ring at Cherokee Recreation Center in south St. Louis.

The Cherokee Recreation Center’s boxing program, where Knockout Martin Luther King was born.





Pulling the Rug From Under Yourself

City murder pace in 2016 is about on par with last year’s.

And the cause of it all?

You guessed it:

“We have a problem with gun violence we have too many guns on our streets we have a problem with our guns laws.” said Police Captain Mary Warneke.

Statistics indicate more than 8,500 illegally owned firearms were removed from the streets by officers in the last six years.

If you’re going to make a bullshit exculpatory man-behind-the-tree argument, Capt. Warneke, you would do well for yourself not to let the local news sources undercut your own argument in the next sentence.  In fact, the next sentence actually undercuts her own argument twice.  Let’s see how alert and awake is my peanut gallery.  The race to the gold star starts….NOW.





Blacks Sue Business For Not Engaging In Racial Profiling

Chicago

The world just got a little bit loonier:

Attorney Chris Hurley said the 7-Eleven’s operator knew the area surrounding the store suffered from high street crime and should have had well-trained security that could have prevented the actions that led to Gaines’ death.

But if the cops do it, the blacks and lawyers would be caterwauling about MUH RAYSHUL PWOFYLYNG and MUH DISPIT IMPAK.

Alternatively, I could have entitled this post:

Same As It Ever Was

He was a carjacking suspect.

By the end of the day, though, he will magically become a gentle giant who was getting ready to start college tomorrow and was just on the way to the quickie mart.  He was knees down on the street with his hands in the air, willing to surrender.  To be followed by full blown riots tomorrow night.





They Forgot Nothing

Me, December 20:

Now I’m less sanguine about it.  It all depends on how the three girls he saved from death behave later in life.  If they wind up being ghetto whores who do their part to perpetuate more black ghetto dysfunction, then his sacrifice will have been all for naught.

So much of the essence of heroism isn’t what the hero does, it’s how everyone else reacts.

“How everyone else reacts.”

The good news is that they didn’t forget anything.  The bad news is that they didn’t learn anything to begin with.
