    As a gadfly I can attest that this will increase 10 fold in the coming years. Riverview will become the the next East St. Louis. It has poor management from their elected board. This is just the start!

    I don’t know why when things are bad they are always compared to East St Louis. St Louis has more shooting and deaths than East St Louis. Most of the bodies found in East St. Louis where dumped there by
    people of St Louis.

      The reason is most can understand the plight of those living in E-St. LOUIS, it represents failure from all sides’ its population and its elected people. The reason more people are killed in St. Louis is the population is larger in the LOU. Most crimes are in precinct populated by African Americans (true fact) there are Gaggle of issues of why that happens, but that’s for another time. North County is succumbing to all the ill’s left in the wake of poor African Americans.

    ha !! i really dont think theres a big difference now in the numbers of crime regardless of race , their all screwed up in the head , and blacks might lead the poll as far as violent cases but of course you know thats because you people are all too busy kidnapping kids , molesting them , killing them hours after snatching them and making your meth in your basements while your kids are upstairs . oh an lets totally not forget all the bank robberies youre doing also , i say this to show how no race is perfect and everybody have their imperfections . wake up !!!!

      “you people”? the offender registry is half and half..did you see the 18 year old black teen in fairfield california that bit the nose off of his 1 month baby for crying? all these drive bys are blacks as well..Crips and bloods ring a bell? Read these stories everyday, and you will see most are blacks..

      YO Mommy,bantering about with you will be a waste of time. You’re fixated on race,I and others are looking at behavior. Remember this the entire board of the village of Riverview is White. The population is 70+ % African American. What does that tell you about people who have the ability to control the political board but fail to show up on election day.

    I know the young man that was killed here. This happened before 12:30am last night. I was at the bar between 9:30 and 10:00pm last night and the police were already there It’s a shame and sad what happened. Our generation needs to start teaching our children a different way of life no matter where you live, who you are, what race you are, it’s time to make a change.
