Tragedy that the young man was shot. Somehow St.Louis metro has picked up some bad karma. It was part of my territory, and I hated to go there. It seemed like there was always something going wrong on the trips there.
However, when Afgan vets say they weren’t that loaded down with gear in that God forsaken place, then we have to continue to ask, “What the hell is going on?” Was this another test bed, to see how far the populace could be pushed? Were they gaming the situation to see what worked and what didn’t?
To me this whole situation stinks to high heaven. Video is now released that identified the two kids pulling a strong arm robbery. Both sides playing every card they can. Kid is crook. Cop is murderer. If ever wanted an example of how divided this country is, look no further.
