Recently there have been a couple of incidents in St. Louis that should cause concern for its residents (and everyone else for that matter).
The first incident involves Alicia Clarke, who decided to go jogging and upon returning to her home noticed her shoes had been moved to a different spot and that her cell phone was missing. She used Find My iPhone to locate it, and then used her work phone to call it. Her cell phone was in a neighbor’s backyard, so she went and retrieved it. While returning to her house, the neighbor (a fifteen-year-old Somali migrant and diversity counselor named Hassan) attacked her. Hassan knocked her down, pulled her hair, and kicked her. He then went back to his house, during which Alicia called the police. Hassan then returned and stabbed her in the face and head with a screwdriver. During the struggle, Alicia managed to grab the screwdriver from Hassan, who took her cell phone for the second time and fled back to his house.
Hassan was later arrested and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree burglary, and third-degree assault. Alicia suffered a broken nose, and had to get staples in her head as well as stitches to the puncture wound under her eye.
It should be noted that Hassan had previously broke into Alicia’s car on three separate occasions and broke into another individual’s house.
Hassan should have gone to trial for his actions, but the case was dismissed due to Hassan having an IQ of 49 (and thus making him mentally incompetent to stand trial).
Needless to say, Alicia, as well as her sister Andrea Clarke Flatley (who posted the entire incident on Facebook) were outraged.
Even more outrageous is how does a fifteen-year-old migrant with an IQ of 49 become a diversity counselor?
I should add that the name of the prosecutor who chose not to pursue the case is Sakina Ahmad, who in all likelihood is Muslim and therefore probably decided not to prosecute a fellow Muslim.
Thus, justice was not served in this matter.
The second incident involves Jeremy J. Garnier, who dressed up as the Joker and livestreamed himself making terroristic threats against residents of the Delmar Loop in suburban St. Louis.
In his video, Garnier says he was doing it was for attention, but the attention he sought was to take over the world. He went on to say that he planned to kill people until his video reached 1,000 viewers, and then he planned to keep killing people.
Garnier was eventually arrested, and will be held without bail. His motive (and mental state) have yet to be revealed.
Some would say he might be imitating the recent Joker film, but it seems like he might also be imitating the Dark Knight version of the Joker.
