Ten Worst St. Louis Crimes of 2012

Categories: Crime, Lists

8. Fake Cop: A 27-year-old woman was out for a walk with a friend in south city one evening last summer when a cop appeared, informed her he was a St. Louis County cop and that she was trespassing. He cuffed her, told her friend to leave and then took her behind a building to rape her. Needless to say, this man was not a cop. His name was Andrey Levkovsky and he has been charged with forcible rape, forcible sodomy, armed criminal action, impersonating a law officer and kidnapping.

7. Worst Stepdad: James Jennings of Scott Air Force Base became enraged that his 12-year-old stepson sneaked cookies in the middle of the night and left crumbs on the floor. His dogs would get sick if they ate those crumbs! As punishment, Jennings forced the boy to do hundreds of knuckle push-ups, then beat him with a paddle until the paddle broke and finally made him eat two screws he found lying on the floor. Jennings then sent the kid to school, where the school nurse noticed signs of abuse and called the police. The boy's mother, Lashawn M. Jennings, wasn't present for the screw-eating incident, but police also charged her for her role in other instances of abuse. The boy is now in foster care.

How convenient they "forgot" to mention that the victims in the story at number 6 were white.

So Megan Boken's murder only alarmed St Louisans because she was white? So why did Trayvon Martin's killing alarm most of America? Because he was black? Sadly the killing of this innocent girl by two thugs who just happened to be black was NEVER given the same attention as Trayvon. And it won't be surprising if little (or nothing) is heard of Megan's murder in the future. Her unfortunate(and probably racist killing) will (no pun intended) die a natural death in the media. Like MOST(if not all) murders involving white victims and black killers.
