North Kingshighway’s Excitement Comes to South Kingshighway

And the local media are dutifully and accurately identifying the deceased as white.

Which means the warrant for the raid probably had something to do with meth dealing, meth brewing or heroin dealing.


As We Watch All Other Options Be Exhausted

6 06 2017


It’s because cops aren’t being paid enough.  You knew that already, because you’re already well versed in LydaLogic.

But now, we were witness to the birth of a brand new excuse yesterday.  It’s because the ACAs aren’t being paid enough.  Call it KimLogic, or rather, SorosLogic because her candidacy was Soros-funded.

Through all that, nobody in official capacity thought to blame the UDC monument in Forest Park, not a once yesterday.  They’re slipping.

But, today’s a new day.

Eventually, they’ll blow through so many excuses that the truth will be all that’s left.  Winston Churchill once said of Americans that we do the right thing after having exhausted all other options.

Or, maybe, the existence of a problem is being used as an opportunity to hustle.

Florissant Man Acts All Ferguson-y On the Canfield Greens

5 06 2017


He’s 18, his last name is that of a primary color that is five letters long, and he dindu nuffins on the Canfield Greens, in spite of the fact that he technically doesn’t live there.

Yeah, I know, we heard that story before.

Except this time, it won’t be international news for months on end.  The reason it won’t be is because it doesn’t involve a white cop.


Better Weekends We Have Had

St. Louis City

A Chicago-style long weekend-ish body count, and that’s saying a lot, because Chicago has way many more dindus.

But don’t worry.  After the cops get a pay raise and the UDC’s monument in Forest Park is removed, it’ll all clear up and get better.

What?  You don’t believe me?  Well, read the story — One of the incidents was a multiple shooting/homicide incident on Hampton just south of Forest Park, close to the Steak-n-Shake.  You know that was a direct consequence of the UDC’s monument.  Or, alternatively, a direct consequence of Steak-n-Shake no longer having the Sriracha Steakburger.

Would You Mind Filling In a Blank?

Maryland Heights

I was suspicious about this police chase that happened after the let out of a concert held Thursday night at the venue formerly known as Riverport.

All I needed was a little bit of time.

And this mugshot:

The media copy kept discussing a concert, but it wouldn’t say whose concert.

Well, I eventually found it:

Future, he calls himself. When we should be more worried about the present.

You Knew This Was Coming

2 06 2017


Walnut Park and Wells-Goodfellow have gotten really hot lately.  My guess is that, for some reason, the local illicit substance industry is converging on those two neighborhoods for some reason, maybe they sense the cops are playing whack-a-mole in other neighborhoods.

Anyway, Lyda has put her two cents in, and you’ll never guess what her solution is.

Hey, didn’t the city already pass a sales tax increase for the cops two months ago?  Why can’t this money be used?  Right, it’s like I told you — The real need for this revenue was for pensions, not current or new cops or pay increases for incumbent cops.

Of course, as far as any of this goes, I already told you why it won’t work.  Or, if you pay attention to the friendly criticism in that post’s comment section, and even if you agree with it over my reasoning, it only means that what Lyda wants, even if it actually happens, won’t work that well, only marginally at best.  At the same time, and to be fair, this is why the second to last paragraph of this article is full of it.  Lyda is no more responsible for both the murders during the first month and a half of her term and the low clearance rate thereof than an earthworm under the ground of my fashionable Richmond Heights abode is.  Just as there are enough SLPD officers within the relevant range of being above the Mendoza Line of not being so few that it causes crime in se and below the Mendoza Line of there not being enough that it deters crime in se, Lyda Krewson is well within the relevant range of the sort of politician that current year St. Louis City could elect as mayor.  The credible field of contenders back in March were all so samey-same to me that it didn’t matter which one won, and the city’s political homeostatic equilibrium is ultimately irrelevant.  And all of them not named Lyda would have as mayor done what Lyda is doing right now; any differences would be trivial.

Lyda is also ringing in on the other hot chronic issue in the city, that being the UDC monument.  In this, you’ll find a contradiction:  Lyda says taxpayer money will have to be used to move it, but then she turns around and says she doesn’t want it to go to the CW Museum at JB because it would take taxpayer money to move it there.  Reconciling the two, I think what she’s really saying is that she wants it either shuttered away somewhere out of regular public view, or totally destroyed.

Half Assed Effort

Small protest today against voter photo ID.

Of course “Jim Crow” was used.

But they really dropped the ball, and this omission is particularly glaring, because this rally had Jewish participation:

They forgot to compare voter photo ID to the Holocaust.

I didn’t see him there in the pictures, and I can’t find out through back channels if he was there.  But wouldn’t it have been ironic if Bruce Franks joined this protest?

Note:  In both St. Louis City and St. Louis County, the legal age to buy cigarettes is now 21, and retailers have to enforce it by asking for photo ID.
