Meanwhile, a joint investigation by the St. Louis City Circuit Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Eastern Missouri has yielded no charges for the cop that defended his life by shooting Vonderrit Myers, Jr. to death back in October.
What time does the rioting in Shaw begin?
Anyway, after reading the official report, I now know that I had thought all along turned out not to be true. Until today, I thought that Myers wanted to fire at the cop, actually did pull the trigger, but the gun jammed. That’s not true, both Myers and the cop exchanged fire, with Myers shooting first.
Another SMH part of this, which I knew, was that Myers was on an ankle monitor. Yet, he felt comfortable enough to be out running the neighborhood with his friends. If he did that evening, then you know it wasn’t the first time. So what good are the ankle monitors? I suspect that they’re used as a psychological tool. While a lot of the facts of this case were able to be discerned by examining the data that his ankle monitor sent back to the Home Office, there are way too many people on ankle monitors and way too few cops to send a cop every time someone with an ankle monitor leaves their house when they really shouldn’t. It’s just that the authorities figure that most people won’t grasp this, and behave as if a cop will show up lickety split if they go too far from home. And in cases where the data are needed, they can be called up.
A minor protest along, in fact, on, Market Street, this morning, but no big deal.
And a bit more serious one in front of Jennifer Joyce’s house, tonight.
