MoneyWatch doesnt even include St. Louis as a top contender simply because they dont have enough educated adults: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/amazons-hq2-cities-second-headquarters-these-cities-are-contenders/ So that mixed with the false perception that St. Louis is one of the most dangerous citie...

By this logic, nearly any cop shooting can be justified. "He feared for his life". That's pure b.s.



What do you mean? I just gave you the example. If he was 2 or 3 steps away from the car and did that, i would find him guilty. But he was basically in the car when it occurred.
Imagine thinking that cop was justified in executing Mr. Dubose. If you asked that question, I would say No, no he wasnt. Very few times a death can be fully justified. If I was asked as a jury to find him guilty of any crime. I would have to say no. The cop did not force the driver to try and get ...
The cops (three of them), then all prepare and sign a bogus police report, claiming the officer firing the weapon was in danger of his life, fearing he would be run over by the driver. Here is the video: m It clearly shows that the driver started the car to drive away. As he started the car, the co...
NYC is facing similar "doom and gloom" problems with business store fronts: m Its closing leaves four shuttered storefronts on just one block. With their papered-up windows and fading paint, the failed businesses are a depressing sight in an otherwise vibrant neighborhood. Each represents ...
I think goodwill has just done such a good job of advertising as well as opening up new locations that they have taken over this market. Their big warehouse off of Market and the 40 is always packed.

In addition, that is where we donate our stuff. (And we have NICE stuff that we donate) :D

St. Louis needs an exorcism. Seriously........


No, I think it needs a mass vasectomy.
Horrible. I wonder if we will get more details on what they were doing. They were all under 21, so they could not have been at a bar. City Museum closed at Midnight. I am surprised no one has asked yet if they were "exchanging goods" and something bad went down. I mean there A LOT of other...
Mr. K building a stadium in LA. Bye bye Rams.
Though i can't imagine it would be ready before the 2017 season, unless they start it like now.

#158: m That is 31% MORE murders than 2013 and 40% more than 2011 and 2012. With 3 more days to go... I think there is little doubt we will be #1 most dangerous city when the release the rankings early next year. I know we are adding more police officers in 2015... but that wont help. We should have...
But we all know that won't happen. Because this is about property values and making yuppies feel comfortable, not with providing people with beds. When development pushes north on Tucker, how long before the cries to shut down, or at least relocate St. Patrick's? Give it 10 years, and I think a lot...
1 dead, 3 critical downtown... next to the 7-11. Sounds familiar. Not much details yet.

What is the County Murder count? Compared to last year?
m Looks like AB is moving their sales and marketing to NY and out of St. Louis. No mention on how many people will be moving. One thing to note is that almost the entire executive management is foreign, so I wonder if they just had enough of St. Louis and wanted to move to NY with the rest of the co...
O Man, Colbert had a good one yesterday: m He showed the protests then said, "These demonstrations are a sobering reminder that St. Louis still exists....I thought they were supposed to leave ages ago through that stargate they built. (shows pic of arch with a stargate) then says, "Now is ...
^as stated this is 1/1/2013 through 10/31/14. So you can't do yr vs yr. But we have 4 months in a row with increasing homicides on a rolling 90 day. Ain't slowing down :) but I would bet based on weather it will.
Ok... so I did my own analysis of the crime stats up to Oct 2014: m I did a couple view points - Homicides - Burglary - Aggr Assault I then looked at it from 1/1/2013 through 10/31/2014 and did 2 or 3 main graphs: 1. Time Series by Month Total 2. Rolling 90 day Sum Control Chart which should help us...
RE CAMERAS: We bought some 1080p outdoor security cameras for our house (LaView brand) as well as a security system (Simplisafe). The cameras a pretty awesome and detail is amazing. It definitely makes me "feel" safer. I have mentioned this NUMEROUS times on this forum. Why cant we get Boe...
I opened a thread about Wash Ave streetscape... but I think this plays exactly to the topic on hand. As soon as they repave Washington Ave, it look and feel SO MUCH BETTER. Go on tucker, stand in the middle and look westward: the road is cracking apart. Our company just resealed the parking lot and ...
If that is the center... why did they build so far out west?
just watched the timelapse... wow it looks like they have A LOT of parking? Surface lot plus 2 underground levels.

Is there a map of the Metro STL where it shows the EXACT CENTER of the metro (including IL obviously) population is. Is it really west of clayton? North west?
I agree.
We need new blood. As in someone who has NEVER ran for Mayor should be the next mayor.

I too am leaning for a Scott Oglivie.
Just looked it up. Looks like August Sales for Mercedes US was up 10% compared to last year. That is good, but lower than most other car manufacturers who are having a blockbuster year.

I guess this will be pitched a rumor since it is a "I heard"....
