The response Monday evening to rampant criminal violence in St. Louis was so non-existent that it was appalling.
Hundreds of businesses were damaged, many were looted and scores were burned.
Those “peaceful” so-called “demonstrators” who blocked Interstate 44? They trashed the nearby neighborhoods when they eventually grew tired of standing on a cold stretch of interstate and/or the authorities moved them away. They broke windows, stole everything that wasn’t nailed down, broke into homes – both burglaries and home invasions – and were generally pillaging and looting the neighborhood on their way to looting retail establishments.
Ferguson officials, including the mayor, pleaded for help and were given none by Democrat Governor Jay Nixon. In fact, the St. Louis County Chief Executive Dooley and St. Louis Mayor Slay seemingly tied the hands of local police in using force to meaningfully deal with the violent, destructive mobs.
Here’s our message to Governor Jay Nixon, Chief Executive Dooley and Mayor Slay…
You listen and you listen good: If you don’t get a handle on this – like right now – Armed Americans will take it upon themselves to get a handle on it.
I guarantee that business owners and local residents will not show the soft-and-gentle coddling of America’s criminal class that the soft-on-crime governor, county chief executive and mayor have exhibited for months now.
