Our prayers go out to officer Mike Vernon who was shot twice this morning. The piece of crap that shot him is still being sought. This is a tough job that puts a great strain on the officers and their family's. They only ask for your respect and support. Hope you all pray for Mike.

Ah yes Florissant,finally you have arrived,the final blow to a once great city,you have your black bastards shooting your finest. When the hell will you white folks deal with the fact that blacks are useless and bring NOTHING to the table. All they do is take,take,take and contribute NOTHING of value. They are,for the most part,just as stupid as they were a hundred and seventy five years ago. They don't want to learn,they're lazy suckers on society. They butcher the English language,they destroy everything they touch,most of the women are fat obese slobs,they can't carry on a decent conversation,they have to resort to screaming and yelling,they're opportunist and will swipe anything not bolted down,and whitey just keeps giving more and more. I don't want any of the sons of bitches around me,and truth be known,most white people feel just as I do. I get a big laugh from the good white folks left behind when they go on and on about how nice the blacks are that live around them,my ass. These blacks will take what you have,assault your spouse,parents,children and do whatever they please to satisfy their sick way of thinking. Just watch the local news every day and the first half dozen stories are about blacks doing stupid,violent stuff,ah but their nice,right.
? These animals need to be dealt with on their level,can you say TRAYVON? He was a piece of crap who got what was coming to him. Wise up whitey. Florissant has now entered the realm of Pine Lawn,Jennings,Bel Ridge, Normandy,Welston,etc,etc. It's a damn shame that we have succumbed to such a small minority. Thanks you black bastards,thanks a lot.

Just watch the scene on any news channel the area residents interviewed in the victim of the shooting were all black. The "bad guy" dropped the hi def tv on the patio in the victims back yard. Then started preparing for the cops arrival and shot him, ambush style.
Certain things to look for in this case
1 Where does the "bad guy douch bag live" ?
2 Where is the getaway car?
3 where is the the dirt bag's partner? The shit for brains, isn't brave enought to do it by himself.
Had enough yet, Florissant, wondering what's next. Well, next will be the momma saying he's such a good boy what do the police expect when we don't give them programs to help them out.
Well I have a program, it's called maximum security, one hour a day outside and let him become Bubbas girlfriend, for the next 20 years.
The only shame is that they took the bastard alive.

This used to be a nice town back when the police would pull you over for anything. I say racial profiling was not such a bad thing and the florissant PD should get back to those sort of practices. I know its illegal but its their word against the police. Lets get back to it boys and clean this place up a bit. The main problem is u cant just move across the river and think u are getting away from it. I took the kids to brunswick off tr hughes saturday and i thought i was at dick weber. Some lady has 5 or 6 kids runnin around the game room and they dont even have money for the games but they sure jumped in front of my girls every chance they got to try and play for free. Seriously why are we allways expected to look the other way and if something is said its racist. Getting kind of tired of the lack of self respect

Isn't it great when you have to go to a public venue and put up with crap from these ignorant blacks? Well I wont. I voice my opinion when and where ever I am confronted with these black pieces of crap. They need to be called out,and lord help them if they get too nasty with me as I have a device in my possession that could be called an equalizer. I left Flo years ago,thank God,when I could see what was happening. Did any by chance read this mornings paper? What a spin job that was,typical Post Disgrace. It was about the loss of population in St Lou county. They even pointed out the most loss in North county,but not one word as to the real problem,can you say BLACKS Post Disgrace,can you say BLACKS? I really think that white folks have finally awakened to the REAL problem, and are going to fight back,we'll see in Nov. It wont be too much longer before St Lou county becomes one big Detroit,and we all know what a waste land that place is. I'm so greatful to have gotten away when I could still get a decent price for my home. Oh well,I still feel for all my old friends and relatives who have become prisoners in the once nice city of Florissant. Later.

Florissant is a safe place because, it has a fine and first clast police department. Because it has good and upstanding community. Because the people living there care and support the police, the community and each other.
Florissant is above most and as good as any.

Thanks Florissant for caring and doing your job.

Looks like you losers are still having the great river battle over race. Face it, sprawl has happened, is happening, and will continue to happen as long as North St Louis moves west and south. Hate all you want, look at history of the county and find the truth. Keep blinders on and watch your once valuable property turn to shit right before your eyes. Keep hatin and cash those welfare checks.

Yeah, I escaped too--so I thought.
Virtually everybody I know in Dardenne Prairie owes way more for their house than its worth, by a $100,000 or more. There are more and more foreclosures every week. My local banker talks about a "shadow market" of thousands of foreclosures in StChas Co. not on the market yet. And now I here that all these subdivision golf courses are all teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. And a tank of gas for 3 days of commuting costs $75 ....

I don't have a politically correct solution for FLOMOs woes, but at least most of the FLOMO folks I know aren't facing imminent financial ruin from a collapsed real estate market and high commuting costs. Let's hope this tragedy is a wake up call.

From what I hear, the grandpa defended himself. The guy on the bike went looking for trouble and he found it!

First of all, I believe the burglary happened in St. Louis County,(not that it makes much difference) but the Flor. Police were assisting in apprehending the burglar. It is very unfortunate that ANY police officer had to get hurt as a result. My thoughts and prayers go out to this officer, his family and ALL police officers.
It is unfortunate that some areas are more prevalent to crime than others but I do not believe North County or Florissant is a total loss as some suggest. There is no such thing as paradise in these struggling economical times. People cannot continue to run from problems. We must all get involved and participate within our communities and neighborhoods.
The answer to these types of problems, boils down to becoming educated. Knowledge is power.

You have no room to talk about depressed property values. Houses there bring slumlord rates compared to out this way. Can't wait to see this new movie coming out. It tells the story that you ostriches with heads buried in the sand refuse to admit in your denial state of mind.
