Minneapolis

Mohamed Noor once lived and worked in St. Louis.

Remember the last controversial police-involved shooting in the Twin Cities?  Philando Castile was a St. Louis native, and he is in fact buried at Calvary.  This means that anything goes wrong with cops in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, it’s going to have a St. Louis connection.

One more thing:  I wonder if this Mohamed Noor is related to Mohamud Noor (note the different first name spelling) that tried to become the first Somalian elected to the Minnesota state legislature, the long time Jewish incumbent beat him back on several challenges.

Downtown

Greitens is in town today for a newser about his and the state’s plan to intervene in St. Louis City’s Ferguson Effect-fueled violent crime wave.  A combination of the gossip I’m hearing and my intelligence/intuition/experience tell me that it’s mostly going to be deploying even more Bears to the city for relatively mundane duties to free up real SLPD cops to chase after violent dindus, (remember, the Bears are already patrolling city interstates for that purpose), and that Hawley’s office will intervene in certain prosecutions, (the real reason for that, you already know), and that Greitens is going to give Pence a call who will then lean on the OCGE to start in on using Federal resources as much as possible to haul as much garden variety street crime in the city into Federal jurisdiction as possible.

Houston Chronicle:

Katy cookie store reverses decision to suspend employee after he paid for police officer’s order

(snip)

A young man was temporarily suspended after he offered to pay for an on-duty police officer’s order, which upset a family who witnessed the act.

The man is an employee at Great American Cookies at Katy Mills Mall, where he was working Sunday. During his shift, an officer approached the store and placed an order. His mother said her son purchased it with his own money, and the officer thanked him before walking away.

A family who was in line behind the officer allegedly became upset because he would not pay for their order, too.

The employee’s mother took to Facebook to share the story:

The next family walked up and said “are you going to buy mine too?” My son replied with “I’m sorry I bought his because he is wearing a badge”…… then this customer started verbally attacking him, calling my son a racist, & threatened to beat him up. His wife threatened to go back there and slap him.. The middle aged man sat down his little daughter and tried to come behind the counter to attack him. Thankfully his coworker defused the situation. The man then said “I will get you fired”.

As aldermen consider sales tax increase for police, Krewson pushes crime prevention initiatives

(snip)

During her campaign for mayor, Krewson said one of her first actions if elected would be to form a working group to combat violent crime. Among those in the group now include representatives from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, Gov. Eric Greitens’ administration and Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office.

The group also is consulting with Paul Evans, a former Boston police chief under whom Boston saw a dramatic drop in crime rates, and Joan Sweeney, an organizational psychologist.

Boston? A dramatic drop in crime rates?

What that means is that all we need to do is convince Harvard, MIT and all of Boston’s other noted tertiary educational institutions to move here. That way, a good chunk of the education-industrial complex money stream will flow through here instead of Boston, and it will be so expensive to live here that blacks will have no choice but to find somewhere else to live.  Maybe they’ll move to Boston.

MASSIVE EPIC IRONY ALERT

The only photo provided in this article is of Mayor Krewson speaking at a ceremony observing the centennial of the more serious of the two race riots in East St. Louis in that year. Of course, that begs the question of when did she also run for a win mayor of ESL, but I’ll put that aside for a moment. The irony is that the white-led riots in ESL happened for the same reason why almost all pre-1963 American race riots both happened and were white-led, because white people got tired of black crime and TNB. The relative few that weren’t that way were white people trying to resist some form of state-sponsored forced integration that involved black people as the beneficiaries but not involving them as principal architects of the integrationist policies.

O’Fallon, Mo. man accused of sexual assault against two young girls

A man accused of sexually assaulting two minor girls in O’Fallon, Mo. was taken into police custody on Thursday.

Rayshawn Antoine, 20, is facing two separate sexual assault charges against a person less than 14 and a person less than 12.

O’Fallon Police received a report of a sexual assault on a 12-year-old girl in the O’Fallon Lakes Apartment Complex on June 28.

What interests me here?  It’s not “Rayshawn,” as such, it’s “Apartment Complex.”  That particular one is along 70’s south outer road between Bryan and LSL.  I look up, and the south outer road through O’Fallon, is full of apartment complexes, and just in the short time that AFFH was extant, I’m sure they’re now full of girl-fucking ghetto Rayshawns.  An ironic sidenote is that Roy Joachimstaller, formerly a SLPD Lieutenant Colonel who was up for Chief at the cycle when Dan Isom got the job, is now the chief in O’Fallon, so it seems like both St. Louis’s cops and robbers are following each other to O’Fallon.





Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste

Walnut Park residents frustrated over nightly gunfire

Many families are not celebrating the 4th of July in the some of the crime ridden hard pressed neighborhoods in St Louis.

Instead of looking out for fireworks, they’re coping with nightly gunfire.

I’m so old that I remember a time when people in that neighborhood were more worried about gentle giants and black lives mattering, almost three years ago.

Police say they’re doing their best to get a handle on the surge in violence. They blame a lot of the trouble on drugs and gangs. But a manpower shortage limits what they can do to deal with the trouble. Still, they say they’re doing everything possible. Families tell Elliott they would like to see more done.

Oh yeah, get ready to hear that excuse over and over and over and over and over again. It’s the Rahmian “don’t let a good crisis go to waste” mentality at work. As long as politicians have decided that it’s all the fault of SLPD staffing and SLPD pay scales both being a little too low, it’s reasonable for the cops to ride that horse until it can’t run anymore. Since the real cause is the Ferguson Effect, and these kind of things wear out on their own after a few years, for what I’m thinking, Official St. Louis will keep up this understaffed-low pay bromide until city voters let loose of another tax increase of some sort (*). Then, when that money is used to hire more cops and increase pay, the ook crime wave that was and continues to be a function of the Ferguson Effect will naturally abate, and guess what will get the credit.

(*) – They’re finally admitting that the sales tax that city voters passed in November, the one that we were told was about the cops, increasing their pay and hiring more of them, is mostly going to be used for the MissingLink.
