While they are at it, getting rid of hammers or at least requiring their registration, I think they really need to get rid of rocks. They are all over the place!

I hit my finger with a hammer once. Mind you, hammer hits can be pretty nasty.

So can moose bites. Ask my sister.

No description of the perp other than a masculine pronoun. That is almost conclusive proof now that the press and the police think he was black.

When I was an airman in Okinawa in 1970 the term “hammer” had a rather different meaning and it was something one would “hit” rather than use to hit something else.

Curved claw? Straight claw? Roofing? Ball peen? Cross Peen?
Turning hammer? machinist hammer? Horseshoeing hammer?

One of these has to be an assault hammer and must be banned!

Hammers are all the rage among criminals now. When stopped by the police, they always claim that they’re carrying it to “go to work.” Well, I guess if their “job” is robbing people, they may be right...

I have never been bitten by a moose but I had a pretty close call with an elk one time.

It was pretty close to the elks lodge if I remember correctly. snort))));)

Ferguson Town Officials are really concerned about the StLPost-Dispatch’s disparaging articles about ‘Ferguson’. No update (or outrage) about the hammer attack, but outrage that the writer chose to tie-in the crime rate and inability to sell houses in Ferguson.

Mayor and City Council Respond to Article

Mayor James W. Knowles III and the Ferguson City Council have released a response to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s recent article “North County, Suburbia in Crisis”.

To Whom It May Concern:

We are writing to express our disappointment and concern with the staff at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for what we view as a careless article that gives the appearance of an all-out attack against the residents and business owners who live and work in what your article broadly refers to as “North County”. From the placement of the article on the front page of the Sunday edition of your paper, to the headline of “North County Suburbia in Crisis: Blame poverty, age for weak North County home market,”.....

“....The City of Ferguson is widely recognized as a progressive and diverse community that is proud of its racial and socioeconomic mix. We recognize our challenges, and recognize those challenges are not unlike challenges in other parts of St. Louis County and the rest of the nation, for that matter....”
