Beatdown at St. Louis Metrolink

News from just this side of hell.

ST. LOUIS – The You Paid For It Team is asking questions about a beating on the MetroLink platform in a video going viral on Facebook.

The victim, a 19-year-old woman, was assaulted and beaten Thursday afternoon by another female at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station.

Bystanders did not intervene during the attack but two security guards at the scene did nothing either.

The Bi-State Development Agency is investigating the incident but admits the guards should have done more. The guards have now been fired.

Metro President and CEO Taulby Roach says the guards, who are unarmed, should have done some form of de-escalation and—after this—will likely need more training.

Bi-State Commissioner Derrick Keith Cox says the problem is Bi-State paid a million dollars for advice on how to make the system safer and got bad advice.

One of the study’s suggestions was to take away guns from security guards. Only police are armed now.

Cox says it leaves guards with very little to protect themselves or anyone else for that matter. But Roach says guns would not have helped a situation like this and may have just made matters worse.

But not if you watch the video.  The video shows the ruler of the system saying that having a firearm would have made matters worse.  The security guards should have intervened to “deescalate the situation.”

In other news in St. Louis,

… protestors marched along Kingshighway, a major north-south thoroughfare (but not actually a highway) passing right by the St Louis couple’s mansion.

“Chanting protesters on Friday stopped at the gate just outside the McCloskeys’ home for about 15 minutes,” according to the Associated Press.

The AP also reported that “one protester briefly straddled an iron gate as if he was going to jump over, but did not.”

That particular protestor may have had good cause to reconsider a second break-in.

This time, instead of being greeted by a frightened couple, protestors saw a home guarded by private security, “as around a dozen ‘men in plain clothes’ were seen surrounding the property,” according to a Summit News report.

They’ve come back for Mr. McCloskey and his wife.  They won’t be embarrassed – they’ll get even.  My only solution for this is to leave St. Louis now.

But don’t do that if you intend on bringing your asinine prog politics with you.  You fouled your own nest, don’t foul mine too.

    Wherever they go they vote the same. Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Nevada, have gone blue with Kalifornicational migration and Texas will be next. A leopard cannot change its spots nor a skunk its smell.

    In the South I have walked farmers fields surrounded by pine woods. Stepping off the plowed ground into the trees in the heat of quiet summer day you will sometimes hear a rustling sound. It’s an army of thousands of ticks waiting for a blood host.

    Was the video fuzzed out to obscure the fact it was a black girl beating on a white girl?

    @Bram,

    That’s my guess.

    There’s a really clear pattern arising here. If you fight back against the clowns, plan on being prosecuted. At this point in time you need to consider the “authorities” part of the enemy.

    Clear to everyone but the authorities.

    A lot of young white girls are getting beat up and it is not just here. The authorities in England tell girls that have been gang raped by the vibrants it’s their fault and the perps walk. The mussies attack European women on the street and the police tell the victims they should shut up and stay at home and keep from spreading waysism when, in fact, the only hate crime is rape. Its the only reason men do it.

    “Antifa Is Posting Videos on Social Media on How to Smash Windshields and Assault Drivers Who Will Not Obey Them During Street Protests” Has anyone got your six because the FBi doesn’t. This and the waysist videos is the kind of info the locals and the FBi ignores.

    Hate Crime laws are a oneway street and the ebons know it and they are taking full advantage of it. But not to worry. Trump and the RINOs are going to give us another black…opps, I mean Black…holiday and that will fix everything. A wonderful world of wonderfulness.

    PS: black is now Black. white is still white.

    We need to begin the process of separating from the progressive communist insanity.
    I want to live in a community with a police department. If we don’t separate they will literally destroy us. We need to survive in our own communities. If they win this election they will immediately go after our 2nd Amendment. As per Joseph p. Martino in his book Resistance to Tyranny when they come for our AR’s that is the time to start our war with them. If we let them disarm us then it’s over.They will chip away at us little by little never making any big moves.

    No, they were both black.

    Armed NYC cops watched Joseph Lozito get stabbed. They waited until Lozito subdued Maksim Gelman before intervening (Jan 2013). Unless you are in their custody the police are not legally obligated to protect you. This is why people need to be able to protect themselves.

    SCOTUS, for what it is worth, has ruled that the police have a reactive role only. One of the smart decisions by the Supremes.

    Wherever the police are proactive (Stazi, KGB, SS) the government is totalitarian. First, they take your guns then it is easy to sic the police on its citizens. After all, its for your own good and the greater good of society.
