St. Louis Alderman Advocated Armed Self-Defense

On a more positive note. . .

Frustrated by rising crime, St. Louis Alderman Charles Troupe called on the citizens of his ward to arm themselves.

“The community has to be ready to defend itself, because it’s clear the economy is going to get worse, and criminals are getting more bold,” said Troupe to Fox News.

Troupe recalls that when he went to a district police commander with some residents, they were told, “there was nothing he could do to protect us and the community . . . that he didn’t have the manpower.”
