Brian Lamont Cannon Jr, 20, has been charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, armed criminal action and burglary for his purported role in the shooting of Florissant Patrolman Mike Vernon on Monday.

Officer Vernon responded to a reported burglary in the 1800 block of Banstead Drive in Florissant, and was actively searching for suspects behind a nearby shopping center. Cannon allegedly popped up from inside a trash bin and fired at Vernon, hitting him in the chest and spine.

The seriously injured Vernon was still able to describe his assailant to his fellow officers, and a police canine unit found Cannon hiding in the backyard of a home not far from the scene of the shooting. Cannon is being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond.

Vernon, an Army veteran who survived two tours in Iraq only to be shot in America on Memorial Day, is currently in critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit.

You all tarnish Vernon's name and that of any fallen officer with this kind of commentary. I'm a state trooper in St. Louis, and the morning this went down, I was the only one holding down my zone (800+ square miles) to allow the other 4 troopers I was working with go up to Florissant and hunt this thug down (yes, he is a thug). He deserves to hurt for what he did, or worse. But the color of his skin has nothing to do with it. He is no different than the meth-smoking trailer scum I arrest every day on the highway. Or the white $100,000/year business man who drives home on Friday night at a .20 BAC and plows into a car with two teenagers in it. All dregs of society are bad. It has squat to do with their skin color. It has EVERYTHING to do with their ACTIONS, and their mentality (which is form in part by them, their family, and the company they keep). My sergeant is black and he is one of the most upstanding men I've ever met.

With the look on his face, thug boy knows he fucked up really bad. Or maybe he realizes he will soon be someone's bitch in prison. Nevertheless, the streets of St. Louis will be safer with his sorry black ass locked up for twenty plus years.

For all you patriotards, consider this:

Vernon fought in Iraq for Cannon's right to be a black thug.
