|Yes, the drones will be flying over those majority black neighborhoods in blue, where the overwhelmingly majority of crime transpires in St. Louis|
The shooting of a crime suspect is tantamount to a police officer gunning down a school bus full of innocent black children, to a black community that believes all actions against black criminals by the police is some form of abuse and unnecessary force.
In St. Louis, crime is the avocation of black people (as this illustration shows, murder is an exclusive past-time of the black community in St. Louis).
And though St. Louis is 48 percent black and 43 percent white, the drones utilized by the police will primarily fly over the areas of Concentrated Blackness in the city [St. Louis police chief wants drones to monitor city from the sky, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, June 23, 2013]:
In Chief Sam Dotson’s vision of modern policing, a drone would circle Busch Stadium to watch for terrorists, or silently pursue a criminal who thought the chase was over when the officer in the car behind him turned off its red lights and siren.
And Dotson is working to make it happen.
“Criminals believe, and with some truth, that if they flee from police officers, officers will not pursue and they will ultimately elude capture,” Dotson wrote in a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration. It was a preliminary step toward seeking approval for unmanned — and unarmed — flight.We already know the NSA is listening to all of our phone calls (if you had read Jim Bovard, you knew this already); we already know our e-mail is read; we already know the government is actively making life harder for right-wing individuals (even those as milquetoast as Tea Party groups being targeted by the IRS).
But your Alex Jones-types can't believe the police of a dying city would dare utilize technology to make their lives safer (and improve the overall health of the community) by flying drones over 'high-crime areas.'
Never mind that with black violence increasing in St. Louis, a recent surge - yes, like in a war - of police to combat the violence almost claimed the life of one of the top ranking rankings officers in force [St. Louis police commander survives ambush while on special patrol, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, June 12, 2013]:
Police Major Joseph Spiess was among department brass who hit the streets after a particularly violent night this week, to help look for trouble.
He found some, and it almost killed him.
Spiess was among about a dozen top commanders helping supplement patrols Tuesday night after 19 people were wounded in eight incidents the night before.Now, the St. Louis Police Association Business Manager has pointed out that the police need to carry larger caliber weaponry in the 'urban' setting the city offers, which, really is just a replication of the conditions of Port-au-Prince, Haiti in the middle of the heartland of America [St. Louis Police Consider Carrying Shotguns, Assault Rifles, CBS St. Louis, June 24, 2013]:
Fighting crime from the sky in St. Louis could soon be performed with unmanned drones if Police Chief Sam Dotson has his way but more immediately, police officers want to make sure they are not outgunned by criminals while fighting crime on the ground.
St. Louis Police Association Business Manager Jeff Roorda says many departments nationwide have already moved to arming police officers with 40 or 45 caliber firearms. St. Louis Police still carry a 9mm Beretta.
“It seems to be the opinion of at least our members that we need more stopping power. Not more firepower but more stopping power,” he said. “The larger caliber provides that in an urban setting like this.”So, why does St. Louis need drones?
As we see with St. Louis, it's a city where blacks engage in a Knock-Out Game against non-whites, and the police do what they can to protect the remaining tax-payers and businesses from the depravations of the black community.
Why Does St. Louis Need Drones to Patrol High-Crime Areas?
Two Words: Black People.
But your Alex Jones-types, libertarians, members of Conservatism Inc., and Tea Partiers can't be bothered with this simple fact.
More to the point, there is no need to worry anymore about a heart transplant.
