I thought it was guns: "Drug ring may be linked to 17 murders in St. Louis area"

There is more to the increase in urban violence than guns.

Also, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are right--we need to secure our southern border.

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
A low-level bust almost three years ago has now led to a federal indictment against a cocaine trafficking ring believed responsible for as many as 17 homicides here in the past five years, law enforcement sources told the Post-Dispatch on Thursday.

The indictment, unsealed Wednesday, describes a ring rooted in St. Louis, Texas and Mexico. It cites a connection to four murders since 2012 — including a grandmother hit in her home by a stray shot.

But the sources say the actual tally is much higher, and more indictments are likely.

"Homegrown terrorists, black, white, yellow, or green, do not buy their guns at gun shows". That Obama would strip every citizen not in security of their guns has long been know by any person who can think or reason. Trump and all other Republican candidates agree that Obama is the worst president this country ever elected. But they and most people are too poetically correct to call this traitor what he is really is.

Yes, I blogged the same many years ago.

Can't wait till Bernie and Hillary debate Obama's fervent wishes. Maybe CNN moderators may be wily enough to not ask the Democrat candidates for a debate on the subject.
