In the past seven days, two attempted ambushes on police by blacks in St. Louis have failed.
One, because Antonio Martin left the safety on his gun when he pointed it at a white cop. [Berkeley Police Chief Frank McCall Said Antonio Martin’s Gun Still Had The Safety On, Inquisitr.com, 12-30-14]
Two, because black people - luckily - are horrendous marksman. [Six arrested after shots fired near looted Ferguson beauty supply store, KMOV.com, 12-30-14]

Only a day before Christmas, one of the so-called leading Ferguson "peace" protestors was arrested for trying to start a blaze at a QuickTrip (the gas station seemingly the Bastille of this revolution).[Protester who advocates peace charged with setting fire at Berkeley QT, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-24-14:
One of the most frequently quoted and photographed Ferguson protesters was charged Saturday with setting fire to a Berkeley convenience store last week.
St. Louis County police arrested Joshua Williams, 19, of St. Louis, on Friday after several local media outlets and store surveillance captured images of him trying to set a pile of wood on fire outside the QuikTrip on North Hanley Road early Wednesday.
Williams confessed to setting fires at the store in a videotaped interview, according to court documents.
Williams has been quoted as an advocate for peaceful protests.
An MSNBC profile of Williams in September quoted him as saying, “We have to come together as one and show them we can be peaceful, that we can do this. If not, they’re going to just want us to act up so (police) can pull out their toys on us again.”
Later, he continued: “I learned that we have to stand up and that you can’t get nowhere with violence but you can always move people without it.”
[St. Louis homicides up more than 30 percent in 2014 to highest total since 2008, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-31-14]:
April Fields’ killer hid in the back seat of her car in January, then stabbed and strangled the 25-year-old woman after she dropped off her daughter at day care.
Nick Kapusniak, 20, died in March in a drive-by shooting during a backyard party with his fraternity brothers.
Kourtney Warren, 23, was killed Nov. 21 when an apparent drug deal erupted into a gunfight at a Phillips 66 gas station.
Those people may not have been connected in life but are linked in death as part of a somber tally of about 190 people who died violently in St. Louis and St. Louis County in 2014. Their names will be read aloud tonight at an annual New Year’s Eve vigil to remember those murdered in the area this year.
The 159 murders in St. Louis this year — through Tuesday — have made 2014 the most violent of recent years, with at least 39 more murders than last year. It’s the highest yearly tally of criminal homicides since 2008, when the city recorded 167 murders.
University of Missouri-St. Louis criminologist Rick Rosenfeld said the increase in homicides in four north St. Louis neighborhoods alone — Wells Goodfellow, St. Louis Place, the West End and Kingsway East — accounted for most of the year’s overall rise in murders.
“The homicide increase is highly localized,” he said. “Most areas of the city saw no change over last year.”
Police Chief Sam Dotson said he believed one of the reasons for the increase here since August could be what he has called the “Ferguson effect,” the belief that criminals became more emboldened since the Aug. 9 killing of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer. Dotson said he believed crime rose in part because police were diverted from regular patrols to special details focusing on civil unrest.
Rosenfeld said he saw those links in the data. “If you’re heavily involved in crime, you run a strong risk of being killed,” he said. “If you’re not, your risk is much, much lower.”
Most of the victims were black and male, as were most of the suspects in cases in which a suspect description is known.
This month, Dotson asked the mayor to find money to hire 160 more city officers over the next two years. That followed the death of Bosnian immigrant Zemir Begic, 32, who was beaten to death by a group of teenagers with hammers in the Bevo Mill neighborhood Nov. 30. Three days later, a woman was killed and five other people were shot in an attempted robbery at Pooh’s Corner, a bar in south St. Louis popular with retired and off-duty police.
Dotson also vowed to return to hotspot policing now that officers are spending less time focused on protests in the city.
The real homicide total actually may be higher than 158 because the city’s medical examiner has yet to rule whether at least four deaths police dubbed “suspicious” were homicides.
Two-thirds of all murder cases in St. Louis are still unsolved. That includes the death of Kapusniak, a student at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy who was hit by gunfire from a car passing through an alley in the 2700 block of Accomac Street on March 1.
His mother, Renee Kapusniak, said she was concerned about the growing violence in St. Louis. Kapusniak said she last spoke with police a few months ago and was told there were no fresh leads. But she isn’t giving up hope.
“With all the violence going on there, we do not want another family to live through what we’re going through,” she said Tuesday by phone from her home in Waukesha, Wis. “He was a young life who unfortunately was taken from us by a random act of violence, and it has to stop.”The hallmarks of the black community: black violence lowering property value, ensuring those home owners a wet time with their mortgage and negative equity. With a fierce devotion to the code of "No Snitching," the bulk of violent black people who have engaged in homicidal behavior remain at large to do it again. The "code of silence" among black criminals and the black population that breeds, shelters, and protects them represents a civilization-stunting phenomenon.
Those white people daring to restore civilization to the vast acreage's of land overwhelmed by the black undertow become victims of the random violence that drove away whites decades ago.
For decades, the black population in St. Louis has been solely responsible for the city having a high homicide rate as well as a nonfatal shooting problem. The streets of St. Louis and North St. Louis aren't violent; it's the black population of St. Louis and North St. Louis that makes these streets uninhabitable, even for ghosts.
So as 2014 comes to an end, the continued stagnation of human evolution via the toxicity of liberalism and its adherents steadfast (slavish) devotion to black improvement/empowerment means we will continue to more of the same in St. Louis - and all of America - in 2015.
But the day will come when this rerun ends.
Our task is not to speed up this moments arrival, but survive until it arrives.
