Man Hurls Molotov Cocktail Into 79 Yr Old Woman’s Car As She’s Driving To Church In St. Louis

ST. LOUIS • A 79-year-old woman was driving to church Sunday morning when three men pulled up alongside her in a Monte Carlo with Illinois plates, according to Dionne Flowers, alderwoman from the city’s 2nd Ward.

“What’s up OG, don’t get too hot,” the passenger in the back seat said before hurling a Molotov cocktail into the woman’s SUV, according to Flowers, who spoke to police and people who were at the scene.

It exploded, and fire torched the inside of the woman’s car. She managed to escape with no injuries with the aid of Larry Middlebrook, a St. Louis Second Ward Democratic committeeman who lives near the site of the explosion at Riverview Boulevard and Orchid Avenue, Flowers said.

The woman wanted to go back in to save her Bible, but Middlebrook stopped her.

St. Louis city police confirmed Sunday night that they were called to that location at 10:45 a.m. for a fire, that an object was thrown into the woman's car and that the woman was not injured. The bomb and arson unit was investigating.

Flowers said there were three men in the car about 20 to 25 years old, and the man who threw the cocktail had short braided hair. The explosion happened near the Our Lady of the Holy Cross' picnic, which Flowers was attending, so she managed to get a picture of the SUV as it was being towed away.

"This is just something that I would want to know about. It could've been anybody," Flowers said.

It's as if the gang mentality has become THE mentality. It's this older population that is so much at risk and that NEEDS the police. There was an article yesterday about Baltimore begging for police protection:


Baltimore Residents Beg Police To Protect Their Neighborhoods

As Justice Department civil rights lawyers held a meeting to talk about overhauling the Baltimore police department, another group of Baltimore residents gathered to beg the police to fix the crime in their neighborhoods.

The meetings show a disconnect between those who are concerned about crime and those worried about police reform, reports the Washington Post. Neither group was aware the other one was meeting.

About 40 people, most of them older black women, gathered in a West Baltimore church basement to ask police to return order to their community.

A gas station owner whose parking lot had been taken over by loiterers begged for help; a 17-year old was also fatally shot there. Another man asked about the foot patrol officers that were promised to the community....
