It’s the Least Wonderful Time of the Year

Knockout Martin Luther King, Thursday night.

It says he’s worried about medical expenses.  Since these medical expenses were incurred as the result of being the victim of a violent crime, all he needs to do is file a claim with the state crime victims compensation fund.

About a year after this happened.

Re the race graffiti at Barnwell Middle in the Francis Howell district.

Francis Howell, as in the district where Normandy is sending transfer students.

Something tells me the two things are somehow related.

DESE gives Riverview Garbage provisional accreditation, valid as of the start of the district’s second semester of this school year, in early January.  However, the Turner Law transfers can continue through the end of the year, and won’t have to resume at RG schools until the start of the next school year.





How to Tell This Is a Hoax

Webster Groves

A real racist doing real racist fliers for real wouldn’t have included the homophobic parts.

This was a hoax perpetrated by some BLM-type black lesbian.  Blacks are good for hoaxing, and lesbians are really good for hoaxing, so when you put to two together, you have a super duper intersectionality hoaxing machine.

New Missouri gun law worries Chief Dotson

St. Louis City Police Chief Sam Dotson describes the new 2017 Missouri gun law as thoughtless and loose.

Starting January 1, 2017, Missouri residents will be able to carry a gun without a permit or training, and that’s leaving Chief Dotson worried.

Effectively, yes, but legally, no.  All that happened was that the line-item within the state’s list of things which constitute the unlawful use of a weapon (UUW) that cites carrying without a valid permit was eliminated.  At the same time, one was added to the list to stipulate that carrying while possessing enough illicit substances by weight to constitute a facial violation of state possession with intent to distribute (PWID) laws is now UUW.  What it definitely does not do is to allow one to carry either with or without permit in places where state law absolutely prohibits it or permits private establishment and business owners to disallow it.

This is why I don’t consider SB 656 to be genuine constitutional carry.

However, Dotson should be happy with the UUW category that was added.  Except we’re about to have a George Soros financed Lizz Brown slash Marilyn Mosby sort as Circuit Attorney, who won’t swing a hammer at a nail as long as the nail is black.  This means Dotson’s cops should hand the files of such UUW cases to Josh Hawley (starting January 9) instead of Kim Gardner.

The new Missouri law also cover the stand your “Stand Your Ground” law.

It makes mild tweaks in it, not wholesale changes.

“What’s interesting is that we spend a lot of time in law enforcement talking about how to deescalate a situation, this law takes out that requirement that you had to retreat or pull back. Now you don’t have an obligation to deescalate, you can just stand there, stick out your chest and whoever is the bigger man and fires first, that could actually be a defense in the court of law,” said Dotson.

Non sequitur.  “We,” in the context that Dotson uses it, refers to men and women who are granted a legal and moral monopoly on the use of deadly force and are given legal, moral and social benefit of the doubt in questionable situations therefore.  If he wants to make the case that deescalation training, such as it currently is, does no good and is mostly racially/politically driven instead of done out of a desire for better law enforcement, he should be my guest ’till the cows come home.  It does not follow that what we want from civilians should be the exact same as what we want from cops.

What I fear, though, is that Dotson is turning over his hand and showing us that they’re ready, starting at the stroke of midnight which rings out the old current year and rings in the new current year, that they’re going to lean on the excuse of SB 656 for every “gun crime” committed in the city.





Racial Profiling, Tsk Tsk

North County

County Browns to install Shot Spotter near the corner of Halls Ferry and Chambers.

For some strange reason, they’re not going to install one near the corner of Clarkson and Clayton.

And I ask:  Why the hell not?  After all, we know, because certain people in this town told us over and over, that there’s all this white crime out there that the cops ignore.  Shot spotter at Clarkson-Clayton would be the best way to prove it.

The end of this article mentions the controversy over the city turning its Shot Spotter system off in certain areas, why it happened, who or what is to blame.  I have my own cynical hypothesis.





This Is Getting Embarrassing

A few weeks ago, a small gang of blacks from Kansas City stole some souped-up Dodges from the Napleton dealership in St. Peters.

Now, this.

I referenced this in the weekend wrap-up yesterday.  I didn’t write this at the time, but it was a bit curious to me that this gang hit the gas and sped up 55.

Now we know why — They were going home, because the whole gang is from Chicago.

C’mon, St. Louis blacks.  You’re not going to let Kansas City and Chicago blacks invade your town, your turf, and do the car stealing and mahogany mob robbing that you’re too lazy to do lately, are you?  They like dissed you, or something like that.

This is more embarrassing than the Cubs and Royals winning the WS in the previous two seasons.
