“The FBI said the most persistent threat to the homeland is homegrown white nationalists and domestic terrorists. But we’re not talking about locking them up. We’re not talking about holding the Proud Boys accountable and holding the white supremacists accountable,” says Gerald Griggs, President of the NAACP for the state of Georgia.
Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner Reduced Homicides from 205 in 2017 to 196 in 2022
When Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner started in 2017, there were 205 homicides in St. Louis, and in 2022 there were 196 homicides. Even though one murder is too many and is tragic for the families and the city, this does show a decrease in homicides in St. Louis. Instead of blaming one person or political parties, lets talk about the root causes of crime.
There are a number of factors that contribute to the high murder rate in St. Louis. One factor is the city’s high poverty rate. People living in poverty in St. Louis is increasing, and poverty is often associated with crime. Another factor is the city’s working poor. The American dream for most people is unattainable and more and more jobs are disappearing due to AI, as gun sales jumped 64%. The employment rate is low but doesn’t account for thousands who dropped off the unemployment list.
The city of St. Louis is working to address the problem of crime. The new Police Chief, Robert Traccy, has increased the number of officers and even helped with raises to help retain them. Tracy is using new technology to fight crime as well. However, it will take time to reduce the murder rate in St. Louis.

People Living in Poverty Increasing In St. Louis
The number of poor people in St. Louis has been increasing in recent years. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the poverty rate in St. Louis was 24.5% in 2020, up from 22.2% in 2010. This means that over 400,000 people in St. Louis were living in poverty in 2020.
There are a number of factors that have contributed to the increase in poverty in St. Louis. One factor is the decline of manufacturing jobs in the city. In the 1950s and 1960s, St. Louis was a major center for manufacturing, but many of these jobs have been lost in recent decades. This has led to a decline in the number of good-paying jobs in the city.
Another factor that has contributed to the increase in poverty in St. Louis is the high cost of living in the city. The cost of housing, food, and transportation are all higher in St. Louis than they are in many other parts of the country. This makes it difficult for even low-wage workers to make ends meet.
The increase in poverty in St. Louis has had a number of negative consequences for the city. It has led to an increase in crime, an increase in social unrest, and a decline in the quality of life for many residents. It has also made it more difficult for the city to attract new businesses and residents.
There are a number of things that can be done to address the problem of poverty in St. Louis. One is to invest in education and job training programs. This will help to ensure that residents have the skills they need to get good-paying jobs. Another is to provide affordable housing options. This will make it easier for low-wage workers to find a place to live. The city can also expand access to healthcare and other social services.
Addressing the problem of poverty in St. Louis will not be easy, but it is essential if the city wants to improve its economy and quality of life.

Clothing Makers Replaced In Developing Countries with AI and Robots
The introduction of machines in the garment industry has had a significant impact on the need for workers. In the past, most garments were made by hand. However, the development of sewing machines and other machines has made it possible to produce garments much more quickly and efficiently. This has led to a decrease in the need for manual labor in the garment industry.
Currently, the impact of computerized machines and robotics on the garment industry has been felt most acutely in developing countries. In these countries, the garment industry is a major source of employment for women and young people. However, as machines and computers become more sophisticated, they are able to do more and more of the work that was once done by hand. This has led to a exponential decline in the number of jobs available in the garment industry in developing countries.
As AI, along with computerized machines, become more sophisticated, they will continue to displace workers in the garment industry at an exponential rate. There will be a time when humans will not be needed at all for making clothes. The loss of jobs will need to be addressed by the governments since unemployment will increase exponentially as well.
AI Predicts No Human Jobs, Gun Sales Jump 64%
As AI and automation continues to develop, technology is becoming increasingly capable of taking over all jobs that were once thought to be the exclusive domain of humans. Below are a few examples, but the list is exhaustive. In short, all jobs will be gone for humans.
Self-checkout machines continue to replace human cashiers at grocery stores.
Auto-pay is a feature that allows you to pay for your groceries without having to wait in line at a checkout counter. To use auto-pay, you simply scan your loyalty card or phone app at the entrance to the store. Then, as you fill your cart with groceries, the items will be automatically added to your account. When you’re finished shopping, you can simply walk out of the store without having to wait in line.
Companies are increasing the use of automation for its customer service department reducing the number of humans to zero at some companies.
Self-driving cars are still in their early stages of development, but they will revolutionize the transportation industry and displace millions of truck drivers, millions of delivery drivers, uber drivers and the list goes on.
Artificial intelligence is being used to develop new drugs and treatments, diagnose diseases, and provide personalized care to patients already without their knowledge. There are AI doctors that diagnose better than their human counter parts but that’s a secret because you will still be charged the same.
Robots and other machines are increasingly taking over tasks that were once done by humans, such as welding, painting, assembly, driving, creating art, creating music, reporting news, delivering goods, programing, coding, movie production, car production, cleaning, cooking, nurses, doctors, lawyers. No jobs left for humans.
People realize jobs are going away and do not feel safe. That said, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), there was a 64% increase in gun sales in 2020, the highest year of gun sales on record. The NSSF attributes this increase to a number of factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest, and political uncertainty.

Prosecuting Attorneys Exodus Part of Cabal to Embarrass Kim Gardner: Freeman Bosley Jr. Podcast
Freeman Bosley Jr. said, “Natalia Ogurkiewicz is going to resign on Friday with a trial scheduled for Monday. All right. And a big trial as a matter of fact. So now, who’s going to pick that ball up. You know, most lawyers really have a problem with taking over a case that far down the road, because there are a lot of things that they may have done, or may not have done, or wanted to see done that didn’t get done.”
Natalia Ogurkiewicz resignation speech was, “All erroneous and a shame, because nobody does that, and she did it because she is part of this cabal that’s attempting to embarrass Kim Gardner. This is just more piling on and more piling on until Kim is sitting there by herself.
Their are now only three attorneys left with around 500 cases. The exodus represents the deep racial division within the St. Louis criminal justice system and in the City of St. Louis.
The mass exodus of racist prosecutors from Gardner’s office is a major problem for the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office. The words we all have been hearing used for an excuse to abandon cases, and the entire City of St. Louis, include toxic, unorganized…. words used to hide their secret hatred for Kim Gardner and what she stands for: equality, compassion, bail reform, justice, not only justice for the rich and powerful, but for the poor and helpless as well.
