ST. LOUIS • About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson in the Central West End late Friday, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint at the brick house before some 200 police in riot gear moved in to break it up. There was no indication on the scene that Krewson was in the home at the time. A total of 9 police officers had been reported injured as of 9 p.m., including one officer with a dislocated shoulder and an officer with a possible broken jaw, Acting Police Chief Lawrence O´Toole said shortly after midnight

Why were the rioters allowed close enough to the house to do damage?

A better question is why aren´t all these insurrectionists rounded up and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law instead of maybe getting a slap on the wrist & immediately released to do more of the same? How about following the money for once?

#1 Probably because the mayor came out after the verdict and claimed that the judge got it wrong. She threw the judge and the StL PD under the bus to score political points with her black voter base. If I was PD, I would have let them burn it down. It would teach her never to befriend a rabid dog.

They want an economic boycott of St Louis? No problem I´ll stop buying the stuff they make. Do they make anything other than drug dealers there?

Lyda Krewson, D-St. Louis, is all you need to know for full understanding. Some of her supporters were disappointed that they didn´t get an early jump on Christmas shopping like their buddies in Ferguson.
Maybe today she´ll "open up" the downtown shopping areas for them.

The msm still calling leftist fascist rioters protesters. If Trump supporters came anywhere close (not that they would) to what happened in St. Louis they would be called rioters and worse by the msm. So far these riots only happen in major cities run by Democrats. If they ever come to the suburbs things will be different. I know my Sheriff wouldn´t put up with that mayhem, that kind of rioting and destruction of private property!

Heard about this on the radio this morning. No mention of the injured officers. Just a ´mostly peaceful´ protest that ´just happened´ to throw something through the mayor´s window, and was broken up with tear gas. Yeah, that sounds like ´mostly peaceful´. (/s)

The news is being distorted and suppressed. Not good.

Local media has been whipping this up for awhile in advance of the verdict, all but convicting and hanging the officer. Multiple interviews with the aggrieved and sympathetic crowd without the context of a high speed chase from a drug deal and attempts to ram officers with his vehicle.

Out of town BLM and supporters will probably be showing up this weekend. By most accounts officer was probably guilty of something, but prosecutors tied the hands of the judge when pushing only a first degree murder charge.

We deliver goods throughout the St.Louis City and County areas and have told all our people to be alert for any unsafe conditions. Hopefully something was learned from the Ferguson riots three years ago but I´m not holding my breath.

Another poster mentioned that beautiful old movie, "Meet Me in St. Louis" and I think it´s relevant. What have we done to this once splendid beautiful hopeful country? I do not blame Black Americans. I do blame the Democratic Party, 100%. It isn´t just St. Louis that´s been destroyed, or even just the Democrat controlled inner cities all over the country, it´s many other places. Schools that were once highly rated academically are now ruined. Hospitals that were outstanding and could well serve the needs of the community are now closed or facing bankruptcy. Our family physicians that once served our needs so well, are now overwhelmed with paperwork and regulations and the need to join groups that do not increase quality of care. Then there are the ruinous taxes (and the "fees", etc. etc. ad nausea) that hardworking Americans pay. Every part of our life has been impacted by the ill-conceived policies of the Left.

Since the case was tried to a judge instead of a jury, I would guess (though I can´t be 100% sure)that the judge would be free to consider any lesser-included offense like manslaughter or negligent homicide. Again, it changes by jurisdiction, but there is usually some commonality. I´m guessing the judge decided the prosecution did not overcome the defendant´s self-defense claim (that biz about how the suspect was reaching for a gun)

Sorry for the double post, but I just read a related article concerning the judge´s rationale and it looks like for once I have guessed mostly right. If self-defense is upheld (or not disproven), then the homicide is justified and lesser-includeds don´t apply.

Dems back away from brink on Dreamers
Politico, by Heather Caygle and Elana Schor    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/13/2017 5:15:36     Post Reply
Democratic leaders aren’t going to shut down the government to save Dreamers in December. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t stopped fighting to deliver something on immigration by the end of the month. But they’ve subtly shifted their rhetoric in recent days and aren’t insisting that deportation relief be paired with a government funding bill this year. Top Democrats’ retreat from demands on a deal before 2018 ensures they won’t get blamed for a possible shutdown and won’t upend Senate talks on a bipartisan deal combining relief for Dreamers with border security. Those negotiations appear

Political elites on both sides of the Atlantic are still frothing over President Donald Trump’s retweeting of three videos recording Muslims acting badly. The videos originated with a reviled British organization, Britain First, deemed a hate group by the British establishment for linking Britain’s high levels of Muslim immigration to incidents of Islamic terrorism. (Snip)The fury that Trump’s tweets have inspired is hard to square with cable news’ predilection for running endless repeats of videos showing police-officer use of force against civilians. If the media ever provided “context” for those videos, it passed by too fast for the eye to

WASHINGTON — Senior F.B.I. officials who helped investigate Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign last year wrote in text messages that Hillary Clinton “just has to win” and described a potential Trump victory as “terrifying,” according to texts released Tuesday night. A top counterintelligence agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged the messages with Lisa Page, a senior F.B.I. lawyer. Some messages criticized Mrs. Clinton’s team, the Obama administration, Congress and other Democrats. But the two appeared appalled at some of Mr. Trump’s comments during the campaign and feared that he would politicize the F.B.I. For example, after Mr. Trump made an apparent sexual allusion related

On Tuesday, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a stunning victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama. The race went down to the wire, but the Democrat prevailed. Here are five things to know about why Jones won, why Moore lost, and what it means for the future of the U.S. Senate and both parties. 1. Character matters. According to NBC News exit polls, 49 percent of Alabama voters thought the sexual assault accusations against Roy Moore were "definitely" or "probably" true. Republicans and Democrats split on partisan lines — a whopping 82 percent of Republicans said the allegations were "probably" or "definitely" false,

A former employee of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is calling for an investigation after accusing managers of falsifying documents to impose fines on a payday lender. Cassandra Jackson, a former CFPB examiner in the southeast division, sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions also accusing managers of "widespread racism and gender discrimination." Jackson said her superiors at the CFPB asked her to falsify documents during her investigation into a Texas-based payday lending company, Ace Cash Express. "During the course of this examination, I was asked to change, remove, and otherwise falsify documents connected with this examination," Jackson said. Jackson said

Bannon´s ´kingmaker´ status

"There´s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better,” former senior White House adviser Steve Bannon said on the eve of Alabama´s U.S. Senate election, as he went all-in for embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore. The next day, voting results showed Democrat Doug Jones to be the victor in the deep-red state, making him the first non-Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat there in more than two decades -- although Moore has not conceded. If Jones´ victory stands, it would tarnish the supposed “kingmaker” status Bannon enjoyed since Moore triumphed in the Republican primary over an establishment-backed candidate.

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

The FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application would reveal whether the bureau relied upon the Steele dossier – unverified opposition research on President Donald Trump financed by the Clinton campaign – to obtain a warrant allowing them to surveil Trump campaign officials.

It’s a wonder that President Trump devotes so much time to discrediting the press, when the press does so much to discredit itself. The media’s errors over the last week haven’t been marginal or coincidental, but involved blockbuster reports on one of the most dominating stories of the last year — Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. And they all slanted one way — namely, toward lurid conclusions about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russians. Every media outlet makes mistakes. It’s easier than ever to run with fragmentary or dubious information in a frenzied news cycle that never stops.

Even as panicked commuters rushed toward them, four officers didn´t hesitate to engage the man accused of detonating an explosive in the New York City subway system this morning, leaping on top of the suspect and removing the device before more damage could be done. The explosion occurred in an underground passageway near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, sending commuters scrambling to evacuate a major transit hub just blocks from Times Square. Despite the rush-hour crowds, only five people suffered minor injuries, officials said. The 27-year-old suspect, Akayed Ullah, is in the hospital, badly injured in the arm and torso from

On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it.
