The mayor of St. Louis did not flinch during a press conference when gunfire erupted nearby, saying she was unfortunately used to it. Mayor Tishaura Jones was speaking to the press on Friday about her and Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas' efforts to reduce violent crime following a roundtable discussion about public safety when what sounded like gunfire went off nearby. But Jones did not miss a beat and sarcastically responded 'Oh isn't that wonderful,' before getting back to the topic at hand.(Snip)'Well I hear gunshots in my neighborhood every night,' she said. 'My son and I fall asleep to the lullabies in the distance every night  CORRECTION*


Ongoing violence, crime, noise, disorder, and decay are defining characteristics of bLACK neighborhoods, and we know this is caused by White supremacy.

She claims to want to reduce gun violence, but her remarks upon hearing gunfire tell me she is well on the road to total acceptance of the status quo.

Perhaps if you were not a crazy person, you'd be working to stop it. I have never heard any gunfire in my neighborhood in the 40+ years that I have lived here.

Don’t worry you’ll be hit if you hear the gun fire, the one that’ll get you is the one you don’t hear.

This reminds me of something that happened where I grew up. A church caught on fire almost directly behind the house where I was living. Turned out the roof of the church was very flammable sending flames thirty feet into the air. Big fire. While all the fire and police people were at the fire, gun shots started ringing out a few blocks away from a high crime area. They knew no police were around. Same thing (different circumstance) in St. Louis.

I spent a couple years in Oklahoma City around 1990. Gunfire was common. If it wasn't super close you pretty much ignored it.

St. Louis is a dangerous place just as is Chicago and the other inner cities run by leftist and socialist Democrats. But occurring at the exact time the Mayor of St. Louis was standing on the street speaking about “gun violence” with the Mayor of Kansas City, chances are that those four firearms discharges did not occur through happenstance, but smell of a partisan and purposeful attempt to further “gin up” and publicized attention to that Mayor’s “gun violence” comments .

She quickly went inside and called police. “I immediately started to put down the blinds in my house and shut my windows,” Williams told our news partners at NBC Washington.

American Airlines has continued its streak cancellation over the course of Halloween weekend as a quarter of its scheduled flights—634 of them—were cancelled on Sunday.

In total, more than 1,500 flights have been axed by the airline since Friday with 738 delays and 342 cancellations, according to FlightAware.

JFK's assassin Lee Harvey Oswald trained at a secret CIA camp preparing for an invasion of Cuba, the son of his alleged sniper teacher said. But Ricardo Morales Jr said that trainer—his dad Ricardo Sr—insisted after the November 1963 assassination that there was no way Oswald had the marksmanship to pull off the murder, further bolstering conspiracy theories over the doomed president's death. Morales Jr., 58, of Michigan, told Miami's Actualidad Radio that his father was a contract CIA worker, anti-Castro militant, counter-intelligence chief for Venezuela, FBI informant and drug dealer. Morales Sr went by the nickname 'Monkey', and was among the FBI's most infamous informants.

Animal rights organization PETA has called for Major League Baseball to "strike out" the word "bullpen" in favor of "arm barn" because, as the organization claims, the current term is a reference to a "holding area where terrified bulls are kept before slaughter." "Words matter, and baseball ‘bullpens’ devalue talented players and mock the misery of sensitive animals," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a press release. "PETA encourages Major League Baseball coaches, announcers, players, and fans to changeup their language and embrace the ‘arm barn’ instead." [Tweet]
