In Other Crime News

Around the Metro

An 18-year old Ferguson man was gunned down.  Haven’t we heard this story before?  Because #BlackLivesMatter, or #HandsUpDontShoot.

This is the second incident at this Jack In The Box in the last two years.  There was a big fight that resulted in a shooting on its parking lot in the middle of the night in September 2013.  And this past October, there was this rolling gun battle that started at a quickie mart also on Gravois just on the other side of Russell.  Now, this JITB and the quickie mart are wedged in between three gentrified or gentrifying neighborhoods, Lafayette Square, Soulard and Benton Park, and are technically in a fourth, McKinley Heights, that is in a state of purgatory between succumbing to the black undertow and being gentrified.  So this means you have three expensive gentrified neighborhoods each with their own powerful neighborhood associations whose wheels get greased when they squeak.  That JITB and that quickie mart are probably both going to be gone very soon.

“Robberies in Bevo have doubled since 2014.”

The Bosnians were only going to hold back the waters for so long.

Four yoots acting yooty.  The NLEC is involved here, but only in terms of the yoots acting yooty near their building.

Grand Forks, North Dakota

Which usually means racial hate crime.

Sab has more.


Baltimore, Chicago and St. Louis, Oh My!

Chocolate City St. Louis

We’re mentioned.  However, we’re not mentioned in the context of having a bad Memorial Day weekend, which we did not, relative to the other two cities mentioned here.

Should have thought about that before you rioted, Sambo.


Profiles in Cowardice

New York City

What have I always told you?  Pawning the blame for black crime off on gangs is political cowardice, not courage.  Most black crime has nothing to do with gangs.

Proof of my axiom?  Bill de Blasio.

Lame and Tame By Comparison

Chocolate City St. Louis

12 killed 45 others shot in Chicago, 9 and 28 in Baltimore.

St. Louis could only produce 2 and 9.  (Sources:  Here, here, here, here, here and here)

Plus a former candidate for 7th Ward Alderman was carjacked at the corner of 7th and Shenandoah.

Nary a Month

Me, April 27:

[The gang truce and partnership] might last long enough to take out one or two cops, but otherwise, it’ll last about as long as the Hitler-Stalin Pact.  How can I be so certain here?  Because this is probably at least the tenth time since I’ve been paying close enough attention to the news that I’ve read a story like this, that black gangs will put aside their differences to join forces against the KKKops.  Very little ever comes of it.  Then the underlying news is forgotten, and the Bellcurvian gang bangers have to go back to defending dope turf against intrusions by each other.  So much for that truce and that partnership, huh?

Not even a month later.
