Police: Molotov Cocktail Tossed into 70-Year-Old’s SUV

Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis police are searching for suspects after a Molotov cocktail was tossed into the SUV of a 70-year-old woman as she was heading to church.

The crime happened Sunday. The woman was not hurt but her vehicle was badly damaged. The police bomb and arson unit is investigating.

Police say the woman was on her way to church when a Monte Carlo with three men inside pulled alongside her SUV. The back seat passenger tossed the explosive device into the woman’s SUV, and it exploded, badly burning the inside of the vehicle.

A motive for the crime wasn’t clear.

    This is one of the worst examples of reporting I have seen in quite a while. It is no mystery why your audience is declining year after year. PC reporting is not really in the public interest, it only serves to dilute, diffuse, and disguise the facts.

    I have been a loyal listener of KMOX since 1975, but more. I can’t even type this comment without your infernal commercials interrupting my keystrokes. Phooey on you.

      I agree, James. In all probability, we know the race of the victim, we know the race of the attackers, and we know why they did it. For a so called news reporting agency (and lets be fair, the police, too) to actively obfuscate these facts borders on criminal. Especially in light of what would have been reported had the races been reversed.
