    A small city in Missouri caught national attention when roughly half of its employees resigned following the election of its first African-American female mayor. Many news outlets and bloggers have speculated that racism and sexism drove the exodus in Parma, a city of about 700 near the Mississippi River; whereas several residents say other factors were at play. Mayor Tyus Byrd, 40, who beat longtime incumbent Randall Ramsey, has not yet released a formal statement on the controversy, but did address it briefly after being sworn in last week. “Moving forward, I’ll get with the board. I’ll speak here in...

    Police in St. Louis County are handling an officer-involving shooting that happened Friday night in Jennings, Mo., and left one person dead. The deceased was identified as Thaddeus McCarroll, 23, of Jennings, who according to police had been acting in a strange manner and spoke of a “black revolution.” St. Louis County Police Department gave the following account of the shooting: At 9:21 p.m., officers from the St. Louis County Police Department's City of Jennings Precinct responded to a residence in the 9200 block of Riverwood Drive for an armed subject. Officers responded and contacted the owner of the residence...

    Well wishes have been pouring in to the Slidell Police Department since one of its officers was shot last Friday. But one in particular has hit the mark. On its Facebook page Friday, the department showcased a letter sent from Anderson, Missouri, by a young girl. The girl, Kaeleigh Ash, wrote by hand: "To the officer who got shot. I say a prayer every night for you to get better. Hope you feel better soon." Since the department posted the letter close to 1,100 people have "liked" the girl's heartfelt card. The reserve officer, Sgt. Cliff Laigast, an 8-year veteran...

    FERGUSON, Mo. — In the first municipal election here since a black teenager was shot to death by a white police officer last year, voters elected two black candidates to the City Council on Tuesday, increasing the number of African-Americans on the governing body to three. But in a blow to the protesters who had pushed for sweeping changes to the city’s law enforcement and judicial policies after the shooting last August, voters rejected several candidates who had the direct backing of protest activists. The results would seem to suggest a smoother road for the current Council as it will...

Rick Brattin, who has begun pushing for legislation prohibiting welfare abusers from buying foods that most hard-working Americans can’t always afford. After Brattin heard a food stamp recipient say, “This is the way I want to live and I don’t really see anything changing,” he knew something needed to be addressed. “The intention of the bill is to get the food stamp program back to its original...

    Emanuel Cleaver says he gets it. Years of heavy-handed police tactics in Ferguson — like the issuing of lots of petty traffic citations aimed more at boosting the city budget than keeping the streets safe — have beaten down the citizenry of Ferguson. Cleaver, a Democratic congressman from Kansas City, called it “taxation by citation” and “strobe-light lynching.” Citizens have tuned out of the election process as a result, Cleaver said during a visit to the troubled city Saturday as part of a delegation from the Congressional Black Caucus. The visit was aimed at boosting turnout in Tuesday’s municipal elections,...

    A new Quinnipiac poll has Rand Paul tied for 5th. That’s eight different polls since November showing Paul in 4th place or worse. There was a moment in 2013 when political realignment was within our grasp– a once-in-a-generation opportunity to unite conservatives and progressives under the banner of classic Jeffersonian liberalism. That window is closed– squandered by the mind-boggling incompetence of senior adviser Doug Stafford. I know what you’re thinking: It’s still early! Polls don’t matter until [some arbitrary future date]. (SNIP) Rand could meet with Al Sharpton again. Because that went over so well the first time. Rand could...

Now, a Republican state lawmaker in Missouri is pushing for legislation that would stop people like Greenslate and severely limit what food stamp recipients can buy. The bill being proposed would ban the purchase with food stamps...

    Anger toward those living below the poverty line seems to only be increasing. Maine and Missouri have proposed bills limiting residents’ food choices if they use SNAP. Missouri House Bill 813 would bar the state’s 930,000 food stamp recipients from using their benefits to buy cookies, chips, soda, energy drinks, steak and seafood. (The legislature also implemented mandatory drug testing for TANF applicants in 2011.) If the bill becomes law, a Missourian can’t buy a can of tuna with an EBT card. Tortilla chips to go with salsa? Nope. Flank steak — tough, stringy and the only cut of beef...

    (CNN) —There will be no hate crime charges for two males arrested in the beating of a man that may have been sparked by a question about the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown. St. Louis police have charged Ronald Williams, 21, with assault. A 15-year-old has also been arrested, according to authorities. There had been speculation that the suspects might be charged with a hate crime because the victim was white and the people who attacked him were black. And because the punches were thrown following the Michael Brown reference.But that won't be happening.

She urged McMillin to “introduce your child to some people of color so that he won’t live his life as a prejudiced person.”

    Ferguson will hold municipal elections on April 7. The mayor and five of the six city councilpersons are white. Three are up for reelection. Since Michael Brown was gunned down by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, the one loud refrain has repeatedly been how could a city where African-Americans make up the overwhelming majority of the population be policed by a nearly all-white police force, and governed by a nearly all-white city administration? The thought was that the Brown slaying angered and engaged so many thousands that it was almost a done deal. The first chance...

    Missouri’s lieutenant governor lashed out at the Justice Department on Monday, accusing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama administration of racism in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in Ferguson last year. “There is more racism in the Justice Department than there is in anywhere I see in the St. Louis area,” Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder said in an interview with NewsMaxTV Monday. “We are making progress. We’ve come an enormous way in 50 years. That’s not to say we don’t have still have more to do. But it is...

    The most recent news from Ferguson concerns what Eric Holder has rightly called the “ambush shooting” of two police officers outside the city’s police department. This incident occurred in the wake of two detailed reports released by the Department of Justice. The first report deals in depth with the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The report recommended that the case against him be closed. The second DOJ report contained a scathing indictment of the sad state of affairs within the entire criminal justice system of Ferguson. The combined effect of these two reports is likely...

    In October radical Muslim Umar Lee from St. Louis promised an “Islamic Jihad” against the Ferguson police. Umar Lee once threatened to behead his critics and watch them squeal “like Daniel Pearl.” Muslim Umar Lee was arrested in Ferguson Missouri in September. Now Umar Lee is raising money for cop-shooter and protester Jeffrey Williams. From his Twitter page: Easy Way to Donate to Jeffrey Williams: #Ferguson you can do it too.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)FERGUSON, Mo. (CBS St. Louis/AP) — A man charged in the shooting of two police officers during a demonstration in Ferguson told investigators he was not targeting law enforcement and had been aiming for someone with whom he was in dispute. St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch said he believed the 20-year-old suspect attended last week’s protest before the shooting happened. Activists said Jeffrey Williams was not a consistent fixture in their tight-knit group. “We’re not sure we completely buy that part of it,” McCulloch said of Williams’ contention that he did not fire at the officers....

    Shortly before shots rang out at Wednesday night’s protest outside the Ferguson Police Department, injuring two officers and reviving fears of return to last year’s social unrest, the Twitter account of Operation Ferguson posted an ominous warning: “This will not end well tonight.” Whoever composed the Tweet was right. Exactly how they knew is an open question. The Operation Ferguson Twitter account has 70,000 followers. It is run by Anonymous, the mysterious band of online vigilantes and mask-wearing anarchists that allies itself periodically with far-left causes from the Occupy movement to Julian Assange’s Wikileaks. To read the stream of anti-police...

    In early versions of a March 15 story about a man being charged in the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, The Associated Press erroneously reported that St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch said the defendant used a 40 mm gun in the attack. He said it was a .40-caliber gun.

    Some Muslim students at the University of Missouri protested an upcoming campus screening of “American Sniper” and clamored to have the film’s debut there canceled. At the heart of the controversy is a Muslim student activist who declared showing the film on campus would make her feel “unsafe” and demanded an “apology and explanation” as to how and why the movie was even selected for Mizzou audiences. The uproar was taken quite seriously, and prompted the student government to conduct a meeting to determine whether the flick should be shown. “This film is blatant racist, colonialist propaganda that should not...

    "D’oh – The Uplands Park “City Manager” Isn’t Actually a “City Manager”, and The Real Uplands Park Officials Are A little Upset…." A fellow named John Muhammad identified himself as city manager of the tiny north county village of Uplands Park during a live interview Thursday night on FOX News channel. Mr. Muhammad then went on a bizarre diatribe to say he, and his community, believed the KKK or the police themselves were the shooters. Beyond the jaw dropping protestations about the police shooting another slight problem is Mr. Muhammad is not a “city manager”. Actually, not even close. First,...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ,” Lt. Governor Peter Kinder (R-MO) said Attorney General Eric Holder “on many occasions” seemed to “be inciting the mob.” Kinder said, “He is sounding the right notes today, this afternoon. I just wish he had been more judicious and measured in his comments since the August 9. Because Mr. Holder came in and seemed on many occasions to be inciting the mob. He seemed to be putting his weight on the one side of the scales of justice and not backing up law enforcement. And if he is now, you know, backing...

    There is no defense for the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri ("2 Ferguson police officers shot in protest outside station," March 13 news story). It was a cowardly act and the perpetrators should be punished to the full extent of the law. However, even more problematic to me is that the event wasn’t shocking. With our culture of gun violence and regular shootings of young black males, only someone who has no understanding of America could be genuinely shocked. Blacks have come far — we can celebrate a black president and attorney general — but racism is...
