Moral Obligation

Minor news in the minor soap opera about the new home for Defense Mapping (National Geospatial Agency).

KMOX:

St. Clair County Board chair Mark Kern said he’s not paying much attention to arguments that the federal government has a moral obligation to choose the city’s north side.

“Moral obligation” = The Federal government spending money on behalf of black people, which of course it never has before.  And also, Pruitt-Igoe and Ferguson.

If the decision is made in the next 364 days, then it will be made based on whether President Obama wants to make Dick Durbin happy slash help his own home state, though a part of it he doesn’t much care about, or whether he wants to make black people in St. Louis City happy.

Let’s get it, peanut gallery.

What in this busts a bromide advanced by many urban politicians?

Read carefully.

Feh.

The new home for National Geospatial will either be near Scott, or at the old Pruitt-Igoe.  Which one wins depends on which member of the Senate Obama wants to make happy, Dick Durbin or Claire McCaskill.  That’s all there is to it.

“Waaah, someone’s messing with my BLM yard signs!”

Me, two weeks ago:

The BLM signs are for white liberals flaunting their white liberalism, playing a game of urban social status signaling.  I’m holier than thou, more anti-white and anti-racist than thou.  (Apropos analogy, because I even saw a BLM sign in front of a UCC church in my driving around.)

Adding a twist, as you can read in this news article, he and his wife have adopted two fashion accessories.

Yoots acting all yooty again:

St. Louis teen on probation for gun crimes charged with murdering man during gun purchase

A teen on probation for gun crimes was charged Thursday with murdering an East St. Louis man who came to St. Louis buy guns, authorities say.

Jamel W. Yates, 18, of the 5800 block of Selber Court, was charged with first-degree murder, three counts of first-degree assault and four counts of armed criminal action.

Police say Yates fatally shot Devion Falls, 22, in the head and torso about 1 p.m. Tuesday in a back yard in the 6000 block of Suburban Avenue in the city’s West End neighborhood. Police said Falls had agreed to meet Yates to buy guns.

Police said Falls came to Suburban Avenue with two other men, 18 and 19, and a 22-year-old woman.  They were not hurt in the shooting and drove Falls to a hospital, where he died.

Falls lived in the 400 block of North Sixth Street in East St. Louis.

Bail for Yates was set at $1 million cash. He was not in custody Thursday.

In April, Yates was sentenced to five years’ probation for convictions of illegally carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest. In that case, police said Yates ran from police and was caught with a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun in his jacket pocket.

Falls’ death was at least the 139th homicide of the year. Two more deaths since Tuesday have brought the total to at least 141. Last year’s total was 159.

Not enough potential murder victims in St. Louis City proper that we have to import some more from East St. Louis.

I’m waiting to see how SlayDotsonJoyce spin this to blame it on Amendment 5.
