We didn’t want this. Nobody asked for this. We voted this down, yet here we are. <br><br>11 children were murdered in St. Louis this summer, 6 in 7 days. 5 people gunned down in an apartment … you can get shot driving down Hwy 70. Police? When they’re not involved in police chases, there is the occasional officer involved shooting, prosecution of white officers shooting an black undercover officer is pending as is an officer charged with killing another playing Russian Roulette… Metro is fighting a strike. The city’s priority? Major League Soccer and XFL Football, toys for suburbanites. They’re also getting an aquarium and ferris wheel.
Spearheaded by the dude who owns Twitter,<br><br>”All of the demolitions that Dorsey and Pulte are funding are on the city’s north side, while at the same time, the city is funneling millions in tax incentives into development elsewhere. The effect of St. Louis’ efforts will increase the value of central city neighborhoods while demolishing and depreciating the north side. One-third of the city’s approximately 303,000 residents live in north city—the area where the city is concentrating its efforts to demolish its building stock.<br><br>These destructive and inequitable policies are not new to the city: In 2009, the city conferred redevelopment rights to 1,500 acres of the north side to developer Paul J. McKee, Jr., who purchased scores of occupied dwellings just north of downtown and emptied them. As the buildings sat vacant, many deteriorated through the work of thieves and arsonists.” #DorseyIsTheNewMcKee
