      Apparently, the crimes over in north st.louis are not deteriorating white women from coming through. They are not afraid. North St. Louis is a very large area. It is true young people are displaying rambunctious behavior. Turn he page back in history when the mafia were killing people on the streets in America. They targeted those primarily were involved in their corrupt endeavors. Same scenario.

        Not even close to the same scenario, in the day it was over big money, area control, or disloyalty. The punks today kill people just because they can or over something petty. These punks have no respect for anyone, including themselves. They have to be called punks because thugs have some respect and can be reasoned with.
