|Odin gave his eye for wisdom; 14-year-old St. Louis native LaTasha Williams lost her eye to random black-in-origin gun violence, which continues to make the city (and metropolitan area) uninhabitable to whites|
An innocent bystander to the carnage that is the environment black people, in the absence of whites, create.
Actually, it's the environment blacks create regardless if whites are absent or present, quickly helping convince the latter racial group to pack their bags.
But back to the honor student, who calls St. Louis 'home'... [Honor student loses eye in drive-by shooting, Fox2Now.com, 9-16-14]:
A man is still on the run after a drive-by shooting at a corner store in St. Louis.
He hit an unintended target: Latasha Williams, 14.
Friday had been a happy day for Williams, a Vashon freshma, her sister, Daja, 12, a 7th grader.
“Everyone was giving her dollars and telling her good job,” said their aunt, Shantell Barge.
Progess reports had just come home from school and people around the neighborhood were rewarding the girls for their high marks.
They went to the M.V. Market at 20th and Ferry in North St. Louis to buy snacks to celebrate around 8:30 Friday night.
“It’s not even decent for kids to be in the park,” said their mother, Donnitta Turner, referring to the violent neighborhood. “They can’t walk around this neighborhood like we grew up. It was better when we grew up. We could be outside. We could play. We can’t even do this out here. It’s sad. Something’s got to give,” Turner said, tears rolling down her cheeks.
The gunman pulled up in a red Monte Carlo, rose through the sun roof, and started shooting.
There were 53 shell casings on the ground when the shooting stopped.
Daja took cover under a parked car. Latasha was already inside.
“I climbed under the car as far as I could get. I’m looking out the corner of my eye and I’m looking at all of the gunshots bouncing off the ground…the next thing you know my step sister is screaming, ‘Tasha’s hit. Tasha’s hit, call the police’,” Daja said.
“It just feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not,” said the girls’ mother.
Latasha was hit in the arm and in her face: a bullet where her eye used to be.

“That’s the only store the kids have to walk to and get candy. Unfortunately, there’s people out there all the time. When the bad guys come shooting, they’re shooting for them but they’re shooting at all the kids at the same time. Unfortunately my niece lost her eye due to being inside the store just trying to get some snacks,” Barge said.
“We are wearing patches every Friday throughout the whole year if you want to support us in that to wear patches on Friday, every Friday throughout the year on the left side, your eye, to support my daughter, Latasha Williams,” Turner said.Gun violence (fatal and non-fatal) is an activity the black population of St. Louis has a near monopoly on, with the parks of the city no-go areas for black children because of the
St. Louis police have made no arrests in the shooting that wounded Latasha and injured a man, 32. Multiple shots were fired into the store, leaving a constellation of bullet holes in the shop’s facade.
Now, Latasha’s mother is asking for the shooter to come forward or for people to help police solve the crime.
“This gun stuff has got to stop,” she said. “There are innocent kids being hurt.”Latasha, the oldest of seven siblings, has experienced violence in her family before.
Her father, Marvin Williams, was 21 when he was fatally shot in St. Louis on March 21, 2005. Police said then that they believed the shooting was gang-related.Turner said she has already broken the lease on the family’s apartment near North 20th Street and Salisbury Street, near Hyde Park, and is looking to move her family as soon as possible. She no longer thinks it’s safe.
So her father was a black gang-banger, who brought potentially seven black children into the world...“It’s bad over there and I refuse to raise my kids down there,” Turner said. “It’s shots every single night.”
And the mother is now going to move her brood from St. Louis to a "safe" city (majority white) to raise her bastard children...
This one story perfectly captures the insanity of the pro-life movement, ensuring a pro-death movement permeates wherever Donnitta Turner, LaTasha William, and Turner's six other children migrate to...
This one story perfectly captures the insanity of modernity, an epoch we can not hope to change or reverse to some magical 1950s-esque existence, but only survive.
And if we survive, future generations will be hard pressed to believe people like LaTasha, Donnitta, or those who fired 53 rounds on a random Friday night and only hit two people could ever have lived.
As dragons were in tales of a pre-medieval Europe that never existed, so will the horror stories of a world once populated by LaTasha's and Donnitta's (for only they could give birth to men such as the gang-banger Marvin Williams, who was 16 when LaTasha was conceived) be interpreted by generations still unborn.
