Have the authorities released the name of the St. Louis police officer who killed

Vonderrit Myers last Wednesday night? As of yesterday, all I knew was that the officer was 32 years old and a 6-year veteran of the police force.

1. I have not seen a name. I am looking not so much for a name but action!

I believe they did say he was on "administrative leave" which means a paid vacation and time to work on a cover story.
I am interested in seeing how they deal with it as he was doing work for a private firm and not directly as a STL police officer.
And of course I am waiting to see why he felt the need to do a pedestrian check (whatever the f that means). Surely he is aware that a young black man may be intimidated by any uniformed officer these days and would want to run. I know I would.

3. His status working for the private firm at the time is all the more reason his

 

name and other identifying information should be released pronto. What we need right now are figures like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy and what we're getting instead are putzes like McCulloch and Jackson. Really friggin' disgusting.

Speaking of 'action,' today is slated to be a day of direct action civil disobedience in Ferguson and St. Louis. I"m not privy to plans (nor should I be), but will be keeping my ears and eyes open online.

6. That is what I thought, but I guess they haven't charged him with anything.

The firm he was working for does not have a good record.

There is a walk out and vigil at my daughters school today, St. Louis Community College at Meramec. I am guessing it will be at all campuses (Forest Park and Flo Valley) and maybe other colleges in the area.

She will keep me posted and send pictures (or so she said!)

7. My thoughts will be with her for her safety today and going forward. I have been

 

really impressed with the youth leadership. Puts my bost-baby-boom generation to shame.

2. Are the cops still lying about Mr. Myers firing a gun?

I notice that info has mysteriously vanished from the official reports. CYA indeed.

4. After the store video was released that showed the back pockets of his jeans

 

clearly not hiding any weapon, I haven't seen that claim trumpeted too loudly any more either, come to think of it.
