    MO - Grief & protests follow shooting of teen Michael Brown #11

Also I believe it was in some articles that ODW also lived there until his divorce. It is 14 miles give or take from Wentzville. Many people...

    MO - Grief & protests follow shooting of teen Michael Brown #8

    In a community of mostly AA, one would think more would run or be on the city council. They need money to run. I heard one AA interviewed mention they don't get the money to run. The discussion just seems to be by everyone in the press about the number of AA officers on the force when the city...

    Here in Missouri the Highway Patrol do more than work the highways. They have investigators, a water division, drug and crime, research and development.

    That is not just the departments responsibilty. They could sponsor a cadet program, but that is a liability up to the city to decide. Schools, families and city leaders need to encourage young people to learn about jobs in law enforcement. There several police agencies not just Ferguson to...

    GUILTY MO - Hailey Owens, 10, Springfield, 18 Feb 2014 #3

    This case is still in Associate Circuit Court. I think that is why there has to be a request for recording. Associate courts hear simple cases like speeding tickets too. Most likely this case will be moved up to Circuit court after the preliminary hearing. That's the way it seems to work in my...

    Terrorist Attack at Boston Marathon #4

    I believe it was the police that had the man strip. They didn't know if he was one of them and strapped with explosives. They dumped him out at a convenience strore. Everything was wild and crazy so that is what I believe is understood what happened. No definate answers yet from the police...
