#1 The key is ROE

#2 I dunno G, maybe the "ROE" in Roe v. Wade should be retroactively applied. Once the libs crossed the Rubicon of birth not limiting abortion, who says what the upper limit of time should be?

#3 Jun 17, 2019 ... But after 1950, St. Louis fell into steep decline. Its population has shrunk to 302,838, a drop of 65 percent—worse than Detroit's population loss.

#4 First they decided to "Professionalize" the police by requiring them to have college degrees. Pause for a second and ask why, why a diploma would make you any more qualified to be policeman than someone that passed Boot Camp in the Army, Navy or Marines? Result too few officers to "police", instead they "patrol" in their cars and only respond to crime like firemen respond to house fires -- after the damage is done.

Then they decided to hire by Profiling, destroying any advantage the "credentials of college" might have given. Nepotism is bad, but hiring by "ethnic quota" is an insidious rot.

Then the icing on the cake: ROE. The politicians demand the impossible so the few policemen still trying just give up...

#5 Also, isn't the city of St. Louis the one with the nutcase DA who has decided that some policemen are "racist" and that she won't prosecute any criminals they bring in?

Small wonder the population decline has been so steep. High crime and awful schools--I still can't figure out why city leaders think that this is a winning formula.

#6 Yes, Tom.

#7 ROE : "If you give me the finger I'll cut you in half with my full auto gun." , If I see a light in a window after 10|PM I will fire a 40mm grenade into it. "
