But it's the story surrounding the murder perpetrated by Vaughn, published by a local St. Louis news affiliate, which details a world only black people are capable of collectively creating. [Police identify 2 women found shot to death in Ferguson apartment, KMOV.com, 8-31-2012]:
Police have indentified the two young women who were found shot to death in a Ferguson apartment early Friday morning.
The victims have been identified as Tasheerra Johnson, 29, and Claudia Williams, 30. Police said Johnson and Williams were found dead Friday morning at the Oakmont Townhomes Complex in the 1600 block of Northwinds Estates Drive.
Officials said family members discovered the bodies just after 6 a.m.
Investigators said the victims apparently died from gunshot wounds. Police said a baby was also found the apartment and was not harmed.
Officers say a vehicle belonging to one of the victims was reported missing, but has been located in Madison County, Illinois. Officials did not elaborate further on the vehicle's exact location.
Several neighbors told News 4 the complex is notorious for having guns fired. One lady said she's made several complaints and has been robbed, but nothing has been done. She said since this recent incident, she plans on breaking her lease.
News 4's Laura Hettiger called the management property asking about gunshots, but the person who answered the phone said they had no comment and hung up on her.
Ferguson Police are urging anyone with information on this case or the missing vehicle to contact authorities.Darnell Xavier "Chuckie" Vaughn and the violence at Oakmont Townhomes Complex illuminates why the mayor of Ferguson noted this about the relationship of the white police force to the 67 percent black population of the city:
The data on Section 8 also show that the subsidies have tended to cluster in lower-income areas. Many inner-ring North County suburbs are disproportionately absorbing the tenants who have flocked to aging apartment complexes.
That includes Ferguson. A census tract that consists of a portion of Oakmont Townhomes and Northwinds Apartments and stretches eastward into unincorporated St. Louis County had more Section 8 renters in 2013 than any tract in the entire state, according to HUD estimates.
In that area, nearly 20 percent of the 5,000 people who lived there were in Section 8 units. More than half of those households had median incomes of less than $10,000; 57 percent were headed by one parent; and 99 percent were African-American.
According to records from the Housing Authority of St. Louis County, three of the top nine recipients of Section 8 payments from June 2011 to June 2014 were the owners of Park Ridge, Northwinds and Oakmont. Currently, more than 200 tenants in those complexes have vouchers.
ncome inequality is just the economic expression of blacks collective genetic limitations when compared to what whites can collectively achieve: in the absence of the white population, which built Ferguson (the city was 99 percent white in 1970), the city took on the character - and its economic fortunes were built on - of the rising black demographic majority.

In reality, crime only follows Section 8 tenants to the suburbs, according to a large body of research, including a 2011 HUD-commissioned study. That's precisely what happened in Ferguson, once a quiet, working-class St. Louis suburb.
Michael Brown grew up in the Section 8 epicenter of Ferguson, a small southeast corner of the city that includes several sprawling apartment complexes catering to subsidized poor renters. That area accounted for a whopping 40% of all robberies and 28% of all aggravated assaults reported in the city between 2010 and 2012, according to local crime data.
An official with the St. Louis County Housing Authority, which administers Section 8 vouchers in Ferguson, confirmed that the area's a hotbed of crime. "We get plenty of complaints, and we refer them to the police," Susan Harrod, director of assisted housing, told me.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and other press outlets have reported that Brown lived with his grandmother at the Northwinds Apartments, which, according to housing authority data obtained by IBD, has the greatest number of Section 8 tenants of any apartment complex in Ferguson. The county subsidizes 58 of the 438 units there.
Northwinds also happens to be a nest of criminal activity.
"I was robbed at gunpoint while holding my infant child right in front of my apartment ... worst experience of my life," said one former tenant. "I had my home invaded four times," said another resident. "The crime is really bad. We have neighbors that stand around all day and sell dope.
"Almost everyone out here is on Section 8 and doesn't work," another Northwinds renter complained. "This isn't the apartment for working-class people. They break into people's houses and cars.
The complex reportedly had more than 50 units broken into in a single year.
Tenants have also complained about rapists entering through windows, and shootings virtually every weekend. Some move their mattresses to the floor, below their bedroom window, to dodge stray bullets at night. Last month, daytime gunshots from inside Northwinds cut short reporters' interviews with residents about the Brown case.
Males aren't the only perps. At an adjacent apartment, Canfield Green, where Brown was shot, a female tenant reportedly once chased a boyfriend across the parking lot and tried to attack him with a butcher knife. In another recent incident there, a woman traded blows with a young mother holding a baby on her hip. Packs of girls are known to roam the property, beating victims with socks packed with rocks.

With all this stated, let's take a look at William Lacy Clay's denunciation of municipal courts in the St. Louis area, which he claims are little more than "ATM machines for local government."[Clay calls for federal review of St. Louis area municipal courts, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 10-29-14]:
U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay called for the U.S. Department of Justice to review St. Louis area municipal courts that he says targets minority and low income residents as "ATM machines for local government."
The request comes after Better Together, a group advocating for city-county consolidation, issued a report documentinghow municipalities use court fines and fees to get revenue from their residents. For example, the group found that St. Louis County’s 90 municipalities made up 34 percent of all municipal fines and fees in the state of Missouri.
"The very disturbing findings in the Better Together report indicate that municipal courts in both the City of St. Louis and many jurisdictions in St. Louis County often function as little more than municipal ATM machines," said Clay, who represents north St. Louis County. "They repeatedly victimize local residents, many of whom are African American, who have modest resources that might be better spent on essentials for their families."
Roads and maintaining/improving existing infrastructure, schools, police, the fire department, and paying for a modest number municipal employees requires tax revenue, which the black population of St. Louis County's 90 municipalities aren't capable of producing (crime suspects, unfortunately, is not something this population lacks in producing).
This black population, however, is capable of producing Michael Brown's, Vonderritt Myers', and Darnell Xavier "Chuckie" Vaughn's... the type of citizen that scares away legitimate businesses and drives down property values.
Your tax dollars go to fund the breeding, housing, and feeding of people like Darnell Vaughn and Michael Brown, both of whom called the largest tract of Section 8 voucher receivers in all of Missouri home.
