Derrick Banks: Teen has multiple priors.
The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office has charged Derrick Banks with first-degree murder in the October killing of Demetrius Clark.

Clark, of the 3200 block of Chippewa, was discovered shot to death on a back porch in the 3800 block of Ashland in north St. Louis on October 20.

Banks, 19, lives in the 4800 block of Sacramento, about two blocks away from the murder scene. Court records indicate that this is not the teen's first brush with the law.

Banks was serving probation when he allegedly killed Clark after being charged in early 2010 with burglary, unlawful use of a gun, resisting arrest, tampering with property and possession of marijuana and another controlled substance. In May of this year he received a suspended sentence on all those counts.

He's currently being held on $500,000 cash-only bond.

He's a good boy. Give him three months probation and another suspended sentence if he goes three months without using a gun in another crime. It would be racist and oppressive to lock him up because "he just tryin ta u no git he lyf straytn ot n sheeit nowa um sayn n sheeit"?

Clark's mugshot says it all. The reality of what he did has finally sunk in. He knows his life will soon be over - locked up for 30 years or more. He is a seasoned thug that has been taken off the streets of St. Louis. That's good.

Three months for first degree murder? You are as evil and sick as Clark. But I'd bet the farm if some thug shot and killed your grandma sitting on her porch, you would want the perp to get the death penalty. I bet there are plenty of white racists who would gladly hunt and kill every thug on the north side if they only got three years in prison. Or better yet, pay them a bounty for every pair of thug ears they turn in to the police. Then you jus be tryin ta u no git yo black ass off da street and hide under da porch.
