My prediction:  Revenge for getting fired or something close to that.


Don’t Bet.

Bombshell:  The only reason a grand jury returned an indictment against Jason Stockley at all was because the lead investigator on the matter for the SLMPD’s internal affairs investigation of the series of events provided a lot of conflicting testimony with a lot of discrepancies, which is a polite way of saying he lied his ass off.

Now will the new St. Louis Circuit Attorney go after him with perjury prosecutions?  I wouldn’t bet.  But I would bet on Jennifer Joyce or someone high up in the Circuit Attorney’s office in the last months of her time as Circuit Attorney put the screws on Deeken to fluffy up his grand jury testimony to ensure they’d indict.  I wonder if anyone is going to get curious about turning over those rocks.  Again, I wouldn’t bet.


End of the Second Month.

A month ago, we were hoping that our normal host would have a good September, a good second whole month of recovery.  As you all know, he hasn’t had one.  The chances of a quick and full recovery went out the window a long time ago, and now even the prospects of what he will recover to are uncertain.  The doctors say that compared to about a month ago, his memory retention abilities, his ability to keep up with fast moving sequences (speed of thinking), his mental sharpness, and his reaction time, are all demonstrably worse than they were during August.  Back in August, those things were satisfactory even if not that good, but satisfactory considering it was the calendar month after a traumatic brain injury.  They all went downhill in September.

We’re about to start a whole new month, October, the third month of recovery, or what passes for recovery, swimming blind in a sea of question marks.

Just to note, we, the key threesome involved in maintaining his existence during all this, his uncle, his lawyer and I, are so far happy with how Operation Keep Away is going.  And I can’t say any more than this, but the lawyer and I are making some good progress in uncovering and then squelching that which made us do Operation Keep Away to begin with.  Swamps are being drained.

Another thing that occurred to me this morning as we’re about to start October is that when we do make it to October, then officially, Backstoppers will be next month.  In a usual kind of year, our normal host and I would go together, most years both of us had dates in tow, and then after Backstoppers, we’d all go to the Soulard neighborhood to eat.  Of course I wear blue and he wears red because of our differing loyalties.  But this time around, I don’t know what kind of shape he’s going to be in on the night before Thanksgiving, if he’ll even be able to go, and if he can go, whether he’ll really know what’s going on, and if he does, whether he’ll really enjoy it.  I now know from experience that when it comes to these brain injuries and recoveries that take a long time, almost two months is an eternity where there could be a lot of ups and downs.

A More Talkative Mood.

I paid our normal host a visit this morning, and he was in a more talkative mood this morning than he has been at any point since being let out of the hospital about a week and a half ago, so I am told, even though he really wasn’t that talkative in the greater scheme of things.  I hope this is the start of a long term improvement trend, but it could also be just a one day one-off, and he’ll be back to three steps above vegetative state by tomorrow.

He did tell me this morning that it is still the case that thinking too much still causes him physical pain, on top of physical pain he already has on and off for other reasons, and he also said something I should have figured out on my own and something I hope the doctors and therapists figured was happening, that he’s having nightmares about the impact (“every other night, so it seems”) which is both causing him to lose sleep and making him scared to go to sleep in fear of having the nightmare, and he’s also having wide awake flashbacks of the impact.  Sort of like PTSD.

What They Wanted To Be When They Grew Up.

When they were little, and their parents asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up, their answer was that they wanted to be professional agitators that go around causing minor havoc on behalf of black heroin dope boys.

Full Circle.

She’s hugging the kind of woman whose long time ago equivalents spawned two bastard thugs that murdered her husband more than 20 years ago.

Free Crutches.

No, not for our normal host.  Don’t worry, this isn’t more bad news about him.

There’s talk now that Amazon is about to scratch St. Louis off the list of places where it will put its much ballyhooed second headquarters, because of all the protesting and protests with benefits.  If that actually has happened, then it’s nothing more than over reaction to the fact that the news is making you think the whole area is some totally bombed out war zone.  I don’t know why, but something tells me that our chances to land Amazon were never really that good, and when they do pick a city and it’s not St. Louis, all this Stockley and evil white police talk will be used as a crutch and an excuse for years.
