    A list of the most violent cities in each state has been released, with St. Louis, Missouri taking the top spot. Compiled from data released by the FBI charting crime in the first six months of 2015, the 'Gateway City' is followed by Memphis, Tennessee, Detroit, Michigan, Birmingham, Alabama, and Rockford, Illinois, to round out the top five. The violent crimes listed by the FBI include rape, robbery, aggravated assault, and murder. Because the data excludes states with cities that do not have populations over 100,000, Delaware, Maine, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming are not listed and ranked.

    After giving a speech focusing in part on the erosion of trust between citizens and the police, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch thanked the prosecutor in the Michael Brown case for saying police officers in Missouri are "substandard," "lazy" and "incompetent." “You talked earlier about the support of varied and various departments," said Robert McCulloch, prosecuting attorney for St. Louis County, Missouri. "What I'd like to suggest, though, is that in my jurisdiction we have a number of departments that are substandard... and they tend to get substandard officers and they're paying them minimum wage in some cases - or...
  • Ferguson Residents Worried About Cost of US-Mandated Changes

    ABC News ^ | February 2, 2016 | By Jim Salter
    Many Ferguson residents expressed concern Tuesday that a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice could financially ruin the St. Louis suburb where a police officer fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown. Residents were about evenly split on whether the city should go along with the agreement, which includes overhauling police policies, training and practices. Cost concerns were a common refrain among opponents. The cost of implementing the Justice Department-mandated changes would be significant — preliminary estimates are at least $500,000, Mayor James Knowles said. The city already faces a $2.8 million deficit in part to legal fees, lost sales tax...

    Pope Center for Higher Education Policy ^ | February 3, 2016 | Thomas A. Lambert
    Nearly three months have passed since student protests upended the institution where I teach law, the University of Missouri (Mizzou). There have been several changes on the Columbia campus. We now have a highly regarded African-American interim president, Michael Middleton, who has a long history at the university. Our interim chancellor seems far more attuned to the campus climate and hosts weekly “chats with the chancellor” to foster a more open atmosphere. On the surface, things seem to have returned to normal or perhaps even improved. Recent trends, however, suggest that post-protest Mizzou is likely to experience three adverse developments....

    Newspapers hardly run obituaries unless somebody pays for them, so you probably didn't see the official death notice of the English language a couple of weeks ago. When the University of Missouri released a letter from 115 faculty members supporting their colleague Melissa Click and demanding that the school "defend her First Amendment rights of protest and freedom to act as a private citizen," words lost all meaning. "First Amendment rights," in this case, are Click's rights to order a mob attack on a student journalist who was covering a protest on the Missouri campus last November. Notice the absence...

    Washington Post ^ | September 18, 2014 | Charles Cobb
    Many images that came out of Ferguson, Mo., last month looked like scenes from Birmingham, Ala., in the 1960s: the gun-wielding police officers, the sign-carrying protesters and the chants demanding equal treatment and human dignity. But thats where the similarities ended. For all the righteous indignation it inspired, the Ferguson turmoil has become the latest in a series of flash-in-the-pan causes that peter out without inspiring lasting movements for racial justice. As an organizer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in Mississippi during the 60s, what I learned was the importance of organizing at the grass-roots and how even...

    Former University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe, who resigned from his post amid protests over the school's handling of racial matters on campus, sent a confidential email to supporters last week complaining about the incident. In the email, which was leaked to local media, Mr. Wolfe compiled a list of people he believed made it impossible for him to keep his job at the university, including outgoing Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin, ex-Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel and the players that joined a strike, and an unnamed "significant Ferguson protester," most likely a reference to Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson....

City of Springfield stops Springfield from enforcing a discriminatory provision in the City's indecent exposure law that made it illegal for women to show any portion of their breasts beneath the areola as an act of protest. The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri filed the suit on Oct. 26 following the plaintiffs’ August protest in which they appeared at Park Central Square without shirts, but with their nipples covered.

    Melissa Click, the University of Missouri communications professor who garnered widespread scorn for trying to physically remove a student reporter from a campus protest, was formally charged with assault Monday morning. A spokeswoman for the Columbia Prosecutor’s Office said Click was being charged with third degree assault, a class C misdemeanor that carries a possible 15-day jail sentence. Click was caught on video calling for “some muscle” to remove a student reporter from an area on the university’s flagship campus where protesters had gathered.

    For the past 15 years, police officers in Missouri have been required to record the ethnicity of drivers they stop on the roads, so the information can be examined for evidence of racial profiling. Reams of data now indicate that “driving while black” is a real offense in the eyes of some Missouri officers and departments. But “driving while gay”? New state legislation unveiled Tuesday would expand the current process of data collection that police officers in Missouri are required to follow during traffic stops to include not just race, but also “perceived” sexual orientation, as well as religion, “disability”...

The famously accurate mock election correctly predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections, and the university claims it's the "largest and most elaborate mock presidential simulation in the nation."...

Senate bill 802 is sponsored by Sen. David Sater, R-Cassville, and prohibits “abortions performed solely because of a prenatal diagnosis, test, or screening indicating Down Syndrome or the potential of Down Syndrome in an unborn child.” Studies suggest that nationwide more than 90 percent of women who receive a prenatal diagnosis indicating that their child will have Down syndrome end up aborting the child.

    The racially charged protests that have roiled 23 universities from Yale to the University of Missouri in recent weeks reached Princeton on Wednesday. Members of the Black Justice League left their classes and occupied historic Nassau Hall, which houses the Princeton administration's offices. They demanded that officials acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson - who was president of Princeton before becoming president of the United States and expunge his name from anything named after him. They further demanded "cultural competency training" for anyone teaching at Princeton, courses on the "history of marginalized people," and a designated public space for...

    Deray McKesson, the professional agitator whose racial rabble-rousing began at tax-subsidized Teach for America, proudly unveiled his new enterprise on the Internet Thursday: A website chronicling "THE DEMANDS" of his radical brothers and sisters on college campuses across Northern America. "We recently launched http://thedemands.org which compiles the college demands from across the country," he tweeted. "Check it out." I did. Man, oh, man, are the kids "DEMAND"-y these days! Whoops, kids, did I offend you with "Man, oh, man?" I plead guilty to "cisheteropatriarchy." Also: ageism! Prosecute me for serial microaggressions and throw me in the safe-space violators' slammer. But...

    But recognizing absurdity when we see it is no less troubling, especially when such hypocrisy tarnishes essential institutions of higher learning and threatens to turn out young people woefully unprepared for life in a democratic society.

    After 129 were killed in coordinated attacks Friday in Paris, several protesters took to Twitter to express anger at "losing the spotlight" in the media. "Racist white people kill me, you want everyone to have sympathy for YOUR tragedy, but you have none for ours," wrote user Melanin Monroe under the Twitter handle @NeonElectricity in a post that has since been removed.

    Now that the adults have cleared out of their prestigious presidencies and chancellorships at the University of Missouri, the Thought Police are coming out everywhere on campus in full array, complete with fancy titles, academic regalia and the usual meaningless catchphrases of the day. For example, Mizzou is getting its first vice chancellor for inclusion, diversity and equity, whatever those words now mean. This much is clear: They don't mean what they ostensibly say. Nor for anyone of a conservative bent who hasn't yet learned to keep his mouth shut and go along with exclusion, conformity and anything but a...

    Black Lives Matter activists are very upset about recent events in Paris, and have been taking to Twitter to voice their displeasure.They’re upset because the Islamic State succeeded in stealing the spotlight from their important movement — just as it was gaining traction.Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos captured some of the tweets, notinv that they “fell broadly into two categories of stupid” Friday night: Paris and Mizzou are equivalent: both represent “terrorism.” (This is the message from Black Lives Matter.)White people are “erasing black lives” by focusing on Paris. (This is the language of the racial grievance-fuelled campus social justice movement.) There are more tweets...

    As the University of Missouri continues to simmer with racial unrest and students continue to crack down on free speech in the name of stopping “white privilege” and “microaggression,” Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro is heading to campus to challenge the students.Shapiro will lecture on the topic, “Truth Is A Microaggression,” at an event sponsored by Young America’s Foundation, Thursday night, November 19, at 6 PM CT in Ellis Auditorium.Student leaders at Mizzou’s conservative club rushed to organize the event with YAF after hearing Shapiro speak at the Fall Conference at the Reagan Ranch in California.“As an organization that works with...

    Yesterday, the thoughtful, clear-thinking individuals behind the Mizzou protests and #BlackLivesMatter issued tweets of indignation that the bloody calamity in Paris was detracting from their REAL struggle against terror on the leafy campus colleges across the fruited plain.Well that wasn’t enough apparently. Now they’ve created what has to be one of the sickest hashtag campaigns ever to express their disgust over the unfair attention 129 dead bodies are getting over their fake poop swastikas and flag-burning: #f**kparis. Here’s a selection of the hate-filled messages.

    <p>Campus activists in America showed their true faces during an international tragedy last night: they are the selfish, spoiled children we always knew they were.</p> <p>Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus.</p>
