“A St. Louis man has been charged with fatally beating his wife just hours after a nonprofit posted his bail.
Samuel Lee Scott, 54, was also served the same day — April 9 — with a restraining order telling him to stay away from Marcia Johnson, according to court records.
Samuel Scott, of St. Louis, was charged with murder in the beating death of his wife. He attacked her the day he was bailed out of jail on a domestic violence charge by a nonprofit group, authorities say.
Instead, Scott brutally beat her that night at their home in St. Louis, according to a murder charge filed Tuesday. Johnson, also 54, died Sunday, five days after the attack.”
When I talk about consequences and standards, I’m not reaching and grabbing, this is not something I’m pulling out the air or talking about to be critical. This matters. And it should matter to you/upset you more than my tone.
