  • Criminal justice reformers aim big by targeting local DA races [Soros funded]

    DALLAS - If you can’t win big, go small. That’s the strategy gaining momentum among criminal justice reformers in the age of Trump, as the federal government hardens its approach to law enforcement. Instead of pouring money and energy into squeezing change out of Washington, national civil rights organizations are teaming with local groups to push their agendas in county-level district attorney races, where a few thousand votes can determine who asserts the most influence over the local justice system. Picking their targets carefully, and crunching election data to influence pivotal voter blocs - and benefiting from the largesse of...

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said he won’t visit President Trump’s White House if his team defeats the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. “No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said in an interview on Barstool Sports’ podcast Pardon My Take. “Are you kidding me?” Long, who was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams and is playing in his 10th NFL season, played for the Patriots last season. He was one of several players who skipped the team’s White House visit after New England defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI....

    It's how dictators operate. Pick a relatively small, politically powerless group of people and portray them as objects of fear and derision. Then swoop in with the power of the state to arrest members of that disfavored group and reap the political benefits of protecting the state from the threat that you invented. This is why the current administration's move to arrest and deport more people who are in the United States without proper documentation, but who have committed no other crime, is so troubling and so counter to what America should stand for. Whether by design or default, this...
  • ‘Awash in guns’ — St. Louis leaders ask residents to hand in guns for cash

    The Kansas City Star ^ | 12/23/17 | Kelsey Ryan
    St. Louis city leaders hope that a program to give cash in exchange for guns Saturday will help curb the city’s increasing violence. But experts say gun buybacks — while popular — are ineffective. That doesn’t sway the St. Louis mayor. “Frankly, if we get one, or two, or 10 guns off the street that would have been used in a serious crime, I will consider that a success,” Mayor Lyda Krewson told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “There is not one thing that we can do that will solve this. We have to do a lot of different things on...

    Well, this is a wild story, albeit a local one, coming from Missouri. A top fundraiser for the Democratic Party has been arrested and charged with a racially motivated gun crime. Matthew Lieberman is accused of drawing a handgun at two locations, firing shots, and shouting racial epithets. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that surveillance footage captured Lieberman with a firearm, along with shell casings at the scene that matched those found in his car. He was arrested on November 29. His bail has been set at $250,000 (via St. Louis Post-Dispatch): Veteran Democratic fundraiser Matthew Lieberman has been charged...

    A St. Louis pizza driver shot and killed a 17-year-old youth who police said was one of two suspects trying to rob him during a delivery Thursday night. Police identified the dead man as Lavon Courtney Jr., the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. One suspect struck the driver on the head with a firearm, then ran back to his vehicle while shooting, police told St. Louis' Fox 2. The pizza driver returned fire with his own weapon, striking one suspect and prompting the other to flee, the report said. The delivery driver called police after arriving back at the pizza shop,...

    In 2016, Missouri generated 96.5% of its electricity with fossil fuel and nuclear power, 1.6% with hydroelectric, and just 1.5% with wind and solar. The St. Louis Metro Area did roughly the same. But now, by royal decree, the St. Louis City Crown has made it clear, the climate must be perfect all year – and by 2035 the city will somehow, magically be powered by 100% “clean, sustainable” electricity. The Board of Aldermen unanimously passed a resolution calling for this to happen – via tougher energy efficiency measures and a transition to wind and solar power. The decision was...

    Police arrested more than 140 demonstrators in St. Louis, Missouri after they blocked a highway in ongoing protests over the acquittal of a former police officer in the 2011 fatal shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith. Police confirmed that all demonstrators on the scene were arrested. St. Louis Alderman John Collins-Muhammad [WTF?] told local media, however, that 126 people had been taken into custody. Democratic State Representative Bruce Franks, one of the leaders of the ongoing protests and a prominent Ferguson activist, took to Twitter to say he was among those being detained. Left-wing internet show The Young Turks also reported...

    Rioters wreak havoc after cop acquitted in killing of heroin dealer. St. Louis was rocked Monday by a third consecutive night of riots organized and carried out by Black Lives Matter after a white cop was acquitted Friday of first-degree murder in the death of a notorious black criminal. At time of writing, ABC News was reporting that “more than 160 people have now been now arrested, as police have been aggressively arresting more people to curb property destruction and police assaults.” The virulently racist Black Lives Matter movement, which, along with its Antifa allies should be designated a terrorist...

    Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man? Bob Adelmann The decision on Friday to acquit a white St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man back in December 2011 predictably set off rioting in the city. It didn’t occur to the rioters that, according to the evidence in the case, Officer Jason Stockley’s use of force was reasonable, to defend his own life against a potentially lethal threat exhibited by Anthony Lamar Smith. It didn’t matter that the judge found that the state failed to prove its allegation...

    This is the fourth day of protests in St. Louis after the acquittal of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, who had been charged with murder in the shooting of a black driver, and President Trump still hasn't said anything. He found time Sunday to retweet a GIF of himself hitting his 2016 presidential rival in the back with a golf ball, a projection of his estimated value to Twitter (approximately $2 billion) and a cartoon showing him literally bringing jobs back to the United States from overseas. But he has yet to comment — on Twitter or otherwise...

    After a third night of violence and unrest in St. Louis, about 100 protesters marched in silence along downtown streets Monday during the morning rush hour. Once they reached City Hall, the silence gave way to chants for justice. The city has been marked by protests since Friday, when former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted on charges of murdering a black motorist after a police chase in 2011. Stockley is white. Overnight Sunday, police arrested more than 80 people after a peaceful protest turned violent as night fell. In a concentrated area downtown, some protesters smashed windows and overturned...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen a single article on Free Republic, or on any place I frequent, talking about the three nights (so far) of rioting in St. Louis after that verdict. St. Louis police is reporting on their twitter that just tonight, there has been significant damage done to businesses in the downtown area, chemicals thrown at police, arrests, injuries received by cops, and weapons and ANTIFA/BLM flags confiscated from violent criminals. See the link above for more information, as I don't know how to post pictures from twitter onto free republic, unfortunately.
