In St. Louis, a 13-year-old has been arrested for first degree murder. In my opinion, if he’s too young to be tried as an adult, then both of his parents should be charged with first degree murder.

In St. Louis, a 13-year-old has been arrested for first degree murder. In my opinion, if he’s too young to be tried as an adult, then both of his parents should be charged with first degree murder. Someone has to be punished for this. Just because the killer is a minor doesn’t mean that this kind of behavior should be tolerated, or go without serious punishment, such as execution or life in prison without parole. Someone has to pay for this.

In this particular case, the victim is a 38-year-old woman who was driving her car into her garage at her home.

The victim’s 14-year-old daughter was in the front passenger seat when this happened. This 14-year-old girl witnessed her own  mother getting murdered. At their own home.

I’m sick of the bleeding hearts, the progressives, and the social justice warriors making up excuses for people who commit first degree murder. If this 13-year-old is guilty of this murder, then either him, or both of his parents, should be executed. And if execution is not a possibility, then at least life in prison with no possibility of parole. And no television either.  Why should murderers be allowed to watch television? Someone should have to pay very severely for this murder. If they don’t get executed, then make them break rocks for 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, for the rest of their lives.

13-year-old boy arrested in deadly attempted carjacking of mom

A 13-year-old boy was arrested in St. Louis County on suspicion of first-degree murder and robbery in connection with the shooting.

ST. LOUIS — A 13-year-old boy is the latest arrest in connection with a suspected attempted carjacking in January that left a woman dead.

On Jan. 24, 38-year-old Kay Johnson was fatally shot while pulling her car into her garage in the 4700 block of Compton Avenue. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Johnson’s 14-year-old daughter was in the car with her when she died.

At the time of Johnson’s death, St. Louis police said they believed she was one of several victims in a string of recent attempted or confirmed carjackings.

On Friday, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department announced that a 13-year-old boy had been arrested in St. Louis County on suspicion of first-degree murder and robbery in connection with the case.

This comes after a 14-year-old boy was arrested on Jan. 28 in St. Louis County on suspicion of second-degree murder and first-degree robbery in connection to the shooting.

Both teens were being held at the St. Louis County Juvenile Detention Center.

St. Louis police did not release the names of either of the teens.

On Jan. 25, a car that a police source said was wanted in connection Johnson’s shooting crashed in St. Louis after a police pursuit. Three suspects, ages 16, 17 and 18, were taken into custody after the crash.

In St. Louis, a teenage girl lost both of her legs because the bleeding hearts put this scumbag under house arrest instead of prison, and then the bleeding hearts refused to punish him for his 51 violations of house arrest

Man violated house arrest 51 times before severe crash Downtown, records show

February 21, 2023

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) – Daniel Riley, 21, ran a yield sign in downtown St. Louis on Saturday, striking and critically injuring a teenage girl. News 4 Investigates looked into Riley’s background and found 51 bond violations and that he never had a driver’s license.

Riley was out on bond, accused of being armed and stealing a gun in August 2020.

That case was supposed to go to trial in January this year, but we learned from sources that the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office wasn’t ready. They had to dismiss the case and refile it the same day.

The judge put Riley on house arrest with a GPS tracker.

Court records show he violated that 51 times. Those violations ranged from not charging the tracker, to being out of the house when he wasn’t supposed to.

In records obtained by News 4, you can see maps showing him moving around St. Louis.

News 4 learned that the GPS monitoring was done by a private company that works with the court. They report every violation, and that gets put in the court record. A notice is also sent to prosecutors.

According to a statement from St. Louis Circuit Courts, “notice is not emailed to judges.”

Meaning it was up to the Circuit Attorney’s Office to do something. To date, the Circuit Attorney’s Office has never filed a motion to revoke Riley’s bond.

Records filed today show that Riley claims he’s been working in home health care for four months, making $15 an hour.

News 4 is going to keep asking the Circuit Attorney’s Office why they never filed to have Riley’s bond taken away and what they’re doing to make sure people who don’t follow the conditions of their bond are held accountable.

The Circuit Attorney’s Office sent the following statement to News 4 for this story:

“A young girl’s life was tragically changed because of the inexcusable behavior of a young man. Our hearts go out to the victim and her family for this unspeakable tragedy that will undoubtedly have a lasting impact not only on her, but her family and loved ones. It’s unfortunate that there are those who choose to twist the facts to take advantage of this situation for their own selfish motives. This is not the time for finger pointing, it’s time to support this family, and ensure that justice is served.”

11 US cities — all governed by Democratic mayors — listed among 50 most dangerous in world

11 US cities — all governed by Democratic mayors — listed among 50 most dangerous in world

Three Democrat-run U.S. cities rank in top 20 on annual list: Baltimore (#15), Memphis (#18), and Detroit (#19). Two more are among world’s 30 most dangerous: Albuquerque (#23) and St. Louis (#27).

By John Mac Ghlionn

Eleven U.S. cities rank among the 50 most dangerous in the world, according to a recent report published by Numbeo, a global quality of life database. All 11 are governed by Democratic mayors.

Three U.S. cities — Baltimore, Memphis and Detroit — are ranked among the 20 most dangerous cities on the planet.

The three cities have more in common than just violent crime. All three are run by Democrats.

Baltimore ranks #15 on the annual dangerous cities list, with Memphis and Detroit close behind at #18 and #19, respectively.

Brandon Scott, just 38 years of age, is the mayor of Baltimore. Jim Strickland Jr., an attorney and politician, is the 64th and current mayor of Memphis, where the Memphis police department has just announced plans to permanently deactivate the unit that five of the officers involved in the vicious beating of Tyre Nichols belonged to. Mike Duggan, meanwhile, is currently serving as the mayor of Detroit.

Two more U.S. cities run by Democrats appear among the 30 most dangerous in the world: Albuquerque (#23), where 45-year-old Tim Keller serves as the 30th mayor, and St. Louis (#27), where Tishaura Oneda Jones has served as mayor since April of 2021.

Tracking back for a wider view yields a still grimmer perspective for Democrats, as another six Democrat-run cities rank among the world’s 50 most dangerous: New Orleans (#35), Oakland (#38), Milwaukee (#40), Chicago (#43), Philadelphia (#46), and Houston (#50). Again, all of these cities are run by Democrats.

Numbeo’s report contains both a Crime Index, which is an estimation of overall levels of crime in a given city, and a Safety index. A city with a high safety index is considered very safe. A city with a high crime index is considered anything but. If a city’s crime levels are lower than 20, for instance, this is considered excellent. Crime levels between 20 and 40 are considered good; crime levels between 40 and 60 are moderate; crime levels between 60 and 80 are considered high. Finally, crime levels higher than 80 are considered dangerously high. The Safety Index, meanwhile, is ranked in the completely opposite way, with scores higher than 80 indicating that a city is very safe, and scores under 20 indicating that a city is borderline uninhabitable.

Baltimore has a Crime Index score of 75.5 and a Safety Index score of 24.5. “Charm City” finds itself sandwiched between Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, and Rosario, Argentina’s third-most populous city.

In 2019, then-U.S. Attorney General William Barr referred to Baltimore as the country’s “robbery capital.” Although the comment was deemed controversial by some commentators, it is amply substantiated by crime statistics. Last year, the city of 576,000 experienced a sharp spike in robberies, with robberies of convenience stores jumping by 300%. Baltimore also suffered a sharp increase in homicides.

Some 900 miles away, in Memphis, overall crime increased by more than 8% last year. By August of 2022, 4,501 crimes had been reported in the downtown area of the city, 600 more than had been reported by August of 2021, according to the city’s Data Hub.

In Detroit, more than 220 officers left the police department last year. Long known as the automobile capital of the world, Detroit has, in recent times, become more closely associated with assaults, shootings and homicides. On New Year’s Day, for instance, a total of 6 people were shot, one of them fatally. Five days later, a 16-year-old was killed and an 11-year-old was injured in yet another shooting.

Democrats have often been labeled “soft on crime” by their opponents. The latest Numbeo report will do little to stem such denunciations.

BLM Rioter Who Murdered Retired St. Louis Police Captain Sentenced to Life in Prison without Parole

BLM Rioter Who Murdered Retired St. Louis Police Captain Sentenced to Life in Prison without Parole

By Brittany Bernstein

October 5, 2022

David Dorn

The 26-year-old man convicted of killing retired St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Wednesday.

Stephan Cannon’s sentencing comes after a jury convicted him in July of fatally shooting Dorn in June 2020. The 77-year-old was responding to a burglary alarm at a friend’s pawn shop during a night of Black Lives Matter rioting when Cannon shot him.

Cannon was convicted in July on all of felony charges he faced, including first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, stealing $750 or more, unlawful possession of a firearm, and three counts of armed criminal action.

Dorn’s widow, Ann Wood-Dorn, has said her husband would regularly respond when Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry’s burglar alarm was triggered. On the night of his death – June 2, 2020 – Dorn was defending the shop from looters around 2:30 a.m. when he was fatally shot.

Cannon was one of the robbers Dorn confronted before he was murdered.

His death was live-streamed on Facebook Live. During the 13-minute-long video that circulated online, a young man can be heard saying, “Oh my God, cuz … They just killed this old man at the pawn shop over some TVs … c’mon, man, that’s somebody’s granddaddy.”

Attorney Marvin Teer said Cannon fired ten shots at Dorn as he arrived at the scene and fired off warning shots to stop the looters, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Public defender Brian Horneyer argued during the trial that police had “tunnel vision” in accusing Cannon of the crime and suggested detectives relied on co-defendant Mark Jackson as their main witness despite Jackson being “a man who lies as easily as he breathes.”

Cannon continued to maintain his innocence during the sentencing hearing on Wednesday, KSDK reported.

Wood-Dorn also spoke during the hearing, saying that her husband “became a victim of the very thing he fought against.”

Dorn’s son Brian Powell told Cannon: “I hope your eyes are woke. You still have time to get everything together and make amends with your maker.”

Then-St. Louis police Chief John Hayden previously described the night of Dorn’s death as “mayhem.”

Four police officers were shot, some 55 businesses were attacked, and a convenience store was set on fire. It was just one of countless nights of rioting that gripped nearly every major American city after George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer.

Dorn, an African-American, retired from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in 2007 after 38 years of service. He became Chief of Police for the Moline Acres Police Department the next year.

On the first anniversary of the officer’s death, St. Louis County Councilman Tim Fitch told National Review he remembers Dorn as a “great friend” and “wonderful law enforcement officer.”

“He’s very much missed and the night that he was taken from our community was a horrible evening for everyone in St. Louis,” Fitch said. He added that the violent evening of unrest was “really fed by the defund the police crowd which really whipped up a lot of protests in the St. Louis area that ultimately led to Captain Dorn’s death.”

Patricia McCloskey’s gun didn’t work so a prosecutor ordered it reassembled and then declared it lethal

Patricia McCloskey’s gun didn’t work so a prosecutor ordered it reassembled and then declared it lethal

As you’ve probably heard by now, Mark and Patricia McCloskey are each being charged with a felony count of unlawful use of a weapon for stepping outside of their home with guns as protesters marched down a private street on their way to the Mayor’s house. Yesterday a new wrinkle was added this story. In order to bring the unlawful use charges against the McCloskeys, police have to verify that the guns actually posed a threat. The McCloskey’s guns were seized but when police tested Patricia McCloskeys silver handgun they found that it would not fire. So an assistant Circuit Attorney ordered the police crime lab to dissemble the gun and then reassembled it so that it could be fired.

The gun Patricia McCloskey waved at protesters was inoperable when it arrived at the St. Louis police crime lab, but a member of Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s staff ordered crime lab experts to disassemble and reassemble it and wrote that it was “readily capable of lethal use” in charging documents filed Monday, 5 On Your Side has learned.

In Missouri, police and prosecutors must prove that a weapon is “readily” capable of lethal use when it is used in the type of crime with which the McCloskeys have been charged.

Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley ordered crime lab staff members to field strip the handgun and found it had been assembled incorrectly. Specifically, the firing pin spring was put in front of the firing pin, which was backward, and made the gun incapable of firing, according to documents obtained by 5 On Your Side.

According to the McCloskeys, the incorrect assembly of the gun wasn’t an accident. The same gun had been used as a “prop” in a previous lawsuit and the McCloskeys had rendered it inoperable so that it could be brought into a courtroom. In short, the McCloskeys claim they knew the gun was non-functioning when Patricia McCloskey took it outside that day.

Mark McCloskey appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show earlier this week and was asked about his guns being seized. He mentioned the requirement that police show the gun was capable of lethal use and said, “there will be some revelations that come out about that.” He didn’t say at the time what those revelations would be but in retrospect it’s clear he was alluding to the fact that Mrs. McCloskey’s gun was non-functional.

The McCloskeys’ attorney said of prosecutor’s decision to reassemble the gun and then declare it lethal, “It’s disheartening to learn that a law enforcement agency altered evidence in order to prosecute an innocent member of the community.” The charges brought by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner probably won’t matter in the end anyway since Missouri Gov. Mike Parson told a radio station this week that he would likely pardon the McCloskey’s if they were convicted.

Two videos to close with. First, NBC 5’s report on the police lab’s reassembly of the gun. Below that is an earlier clip in which a law professor from St. Louis University explains that because the street on which protesters were marching was private property, the McCloskeys were probably within their rights under the state’s castle doctrine to come outside with their guns and demand protesters leave.

Video: St. Louis couple pulls guns on trespassing protesters

These protestors are on private property on a private street. They went through a gate that was clearly labelled as “private street.” They then threatened to steal the guns from the homeowners. No shots were fired.

Graphic video shows idiot protestor trying to stop a FedEx truck that was pulling two trailers. The result was exactly what you would expect.

This just happened in St. Louis, Missouri. A protestor, who apparently does not understand the laws of physics, tried to stop a FedEx truck that was pulling two trailers.

For those of you who do understand the laws of physics, it ended exactly as you would expect.

This video was filmed by a guy named Jared Arms.

I don’t know how long Facebook will let this video stay up.

Warning: This video is very graphic.
