    The more entitlements and aid they receive – the madder they get.
    why do these things always happen on the north side and not in Chesterfield, Crestwood, or Ballwin?

    • True St. Louis

      Scott, you are an idiot, entitlements are in jefferson and franklin county also…the thing here is strictly economic, how about you live on welfare, section 8 and food stamps and consider that really living…from crack to crystal meth, it is all economics, education and jobs….

      • rose

        TRUE, if SCOTT were on crack and meth he would defiantly NEED all those entitlements. Crime is everywhere, how many shootings did Jefferson and Franklin counties have this weekend?

        The “New Century Foundation” studies Federal crime reports, and found significant differences in crime ratio between races, verified by the FBI’s NCVS, National Crime Victimization Survey, and The Department of Justice’s UCR, Uniform Crime Reports, FBI Communication’s Division, 304-625-4995.

        They state emphatically that the Judicial System is not biased against minorities.

        Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

        Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

        Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

        The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

        Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

        Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

    First of the month, and crime spills on the streets like a dropped bottle of ciroc.The hood rats will always keep us in the top 5 most dangerous cities,and until the black community addresses their shortcomings instead of blaming the white man, nothing will change.

    • True St. Louis

      Steven another idiot, I bet if you are in human resources and 2 qualified candidates walk in, one black, one white, you’d choose the white one even if the skills aren’t as high as the black qualified candidate, this is economic, not race, look at fenton, valley park, arnold, imperial, etc., if you doubt, all the pedophiles, crystal meth addicts, etc…it is strictly economic….just those areas don’t make the news as much…

      • rose

        TRUE, Wrong. You have it completely backward. This subject was just a huge issue in the World News, sorry you missed it. Showed statistics of White men and women passed over in jobs and promotions BECAUSE of lack of :so called” minorities on payroll, even though the others had more experience and qualifications for the job, companies are forced to give positions to Blacks to avoid Racism and Discrimination lawsuits. This practice alone CAUSES BOTH racism and discrimination to all other races.

      • Steven Sweeney

        True, affirmative action dictates the minority get preference.You can deflect and play the race card all you like, but can’t dispute the gangs, drive bys and car jackings are all traced back to the black community.Crime statistics, news programs, and property values are all proven resources of these facts.Start making a change instead of excuses.

    • rose

      STEVEN, Everyone knows what the problem is and how to start taking care of it. The real problem is that it would require effort and ambition, which both are totally lacking in this area.

      • True St. Louis

        You idiots must be married, even with a 400 year head start in this counytry, you still deny racial prejudice exists and is the reason so many feel hopeless…an old white geeser just shot some idiot in Jefferson county and the others don’t make the news…you are correct, the system doesn’t want this stopped, which is why welfare and section 8 exists…just provided real wage paying jobs and this violence will decrease…

  • Kevin Liddell

    Wow it is amazing but i am not surprised about the level of racial xenophobia that or these post. First of all as you all know crime can happen anywhere so by stating these doesn’t happen in west county is false. Because it does happen in west county violence and crime has no borders and address the hateful and educated individual by the name of Steven Sweeny people like you or the reason St.louis is the way it is. Please reply so I can educate you and embarrass you on this blog.

    • Buddy

      Kevin;
      You are going to educate someone? There is no hope for the human race if YOU are the teacher. You can’t even form a proper sentence! I will give you props for using xenophobia, but that’s it. The rest of your ramblings lack punctuation, and proper grammar.

      • joe harper

        Lets put up a moat around the city to make the boundaries. We all know they cant swim to get out.

      • Kevin Liddell

        This is for the idiot who probably dates his sister. First your statement was not a proper sentence. Second of people like you ramble ignorant racial statements on these blogs all the time. And for info I hold two degrees in social sciences and economic studies. I lecture at FIU in urban studies now when I posted that statement I was rushing actually to a lecture so if there were any errors in my grammar my mistake. Now Buddy as you fictitious call yourself I can challenge

        you and probably all west county suburban Missouri cardinals baseball watching rams football tailgating lacledes landing beer drinking racist. Yes I said racists the very fact that you point out me not forming a sentence and then attempt to insult me in self speaks to the lack of education you have buddy. So continue to make your statements and have sexual relationships with animals and leave the serious discussions to human beings.

        KEVIN, Oh my, what do rednecks have to do with this article? Are they the ones who are shooting and robbing people in STL an N. STL? I missed that part, I will read the article again. I’ve been broke down in Redneck country, stopped and helped greatly, even though they are a little different and relaxed than you are, I would say they would stop to help even the likes of you. I would leave them and pickups out of this mess.

    • True St. Louis

      Kevin, don’t play into this stupidity. These are the same idiots who think that slavery was a good thing. The same people who believe gang raping girls are cool and wish they could return to those days. The same people who like that drugs run through the inner city, so they can buy $10 hookers and spread disease. They are completer idiots.

        BYEBYE- Great report and you speak the truth, but, because some refuse to accept the truth, you will be called an “idiot,” as others are called for being honest and truthful. Little do they know, they are the ones that are the “idiot” that lives in denial.

      • Therealbyebyetotherite

        Those who reply as saying … ignorant … lack of knowledge, education, or awareness… Look at the fbi facts or the state facts. You will see you will be the ignorant one. But like obama say don’t let the facts get in your way.

    • Steven Sweeney

      Kevin, you must be “normandy strong.” No proper English or punctuation.No white drive bys, car jackings, or gangs.Crime stats and property values are the only resources I need.Learn 4th grade English before you try to correct anybody.

      • Kevin Liddell

        spoken like a true uneducated idiot first off I have two degrees and by the way you soundwhere did you receive your education in the backwoods of Rolla

    • rose

      PRIN. Don’t be so negative. They are doing the best they can, Chicago is larger and hard to keep up with, but at least they are trying.

  • Donya Parnell

    Wow, just completely Woa, and wow at all of the racist comments..How sad..And have any of you actually taken the time to look at the news? Crime is everywhere, just more swept under like Always,, World needs a serious change!!!

    • rose

      DONYA, Where do you think the change needs to start first? The people doing the killing or the people commenting about the people doing the killing? Which is most crucial?

  • Donya Parnell

    How many times have little Peter whipped his mommys A!s, beat or raped her up, stole or smoked her stuff?You answer..& as same & so as everything that has been covered for years, But black & hispanics are the only ones What? Never base your one time experience or hatred for lifetime

  • Donya Parnell

    @Rose & No thanks, like I said Most of white, or white collared crimes are usually covered up, so may the real Record reflect #Racist

    • rose

      DONYA, You mean like Rev. Jessie and Al’s crimes were covered up for years. I get the picture, nothing is going to change as long as blame is used.

  • Donya Parnell

    & Honestly I think that change needs to start within corrupt communities, or whomever are committing these crimes..So basically, the question is what will be done next?

    • rose

      DONYA, And who makes up these communities and who are shooting up these communities? Your answer to what will be done next is “nothing.” You have convinced me that you are racist.

  • joe harper

    lets just sit back and let Obama give more tax money to these hood rats so they don’t have to work and can continue doing what they do best. they are probably all on disability, but have no problem driving around in stolen cars and shooting guns.

  • Donya Parnell

    @JoeHoeper Please shut the hell up,not everyone sits around waiting on Obama handouts or whatever statistics that ll fly by next..& not really sure who you are, but from my understanding, maybe the hoodrats your talking may surely be your mom

    • rose

      DONYA, JOE HAR”P”ER just doesn’t believe in “sugar coating” the problem. Your comment to JOE shows who and what you really are. Nobody is saying a word about people who get up and go to work everyday, just the lazy moochers. Are you feeling a little offended?

  • Donya Parnell

    & No im not racial, actually my moms half white, & reason for saying exactly was because one cant keep pointing fingers, Corruption is at an all time high, & there isnt a color..So meaning wrong is just wrong, quite simple, just like that..Now have a nice day

  • Donya Parnell

    @Rose & Ha,your comments to me mam are pointless..And offended? Why hey, seems I were thinking same about you..Promise wether if you are black or if white, ignorance is all the same,& speaking of racist not all black people are lazy,But maybe those who you think you know they are,as same as any color could be, Have a very nice f! Cking day

      • Kevin Liddell

        you are probably dating a person of color and now you’re mad and making these stupid comments because he broke up with you LOL

      • rose

        KEVIN, Nope, sorry to disappoint you, you are just not a good guesser. LOL But my father WAS GLAD to give me away at my wedding. LOL

      • rose

        KEVIN, I’m sure you do think that, probably what you were taught. At least yours parents taught you something to be proud of.

      • Kevin Liddell

        It’s funny when you ignorant red necks make comments its okay but when African Americans or Latinos make comments you white people scream racism. Rose I don’t care that your red neck toothless daddy gave you away at your stupid little lifeless wedding .
