13-Year-Old St. Louis Girl Returns to Shoplifting Scene, Shoots Owners’ Parents

Bellefontaine shooter (courtesy stltoday.com)

“No good deed goes unpunished,” Oscar Wilde famously opined. In this case, the Korean-born owners of a beauty shop in Bellefontaine Neighbors, Missouri opted not to press charges against a pair of teenage thieves not once, but twice. And then paid the price. According to stltoday.com, the first time the pair boosted hair extensions . . .

“The couple got the items back and kicked the girls out warning them to stay away. They did not report the shoplifting to police. Later, the girls returned to the store and the couple called police, reporting a disturbance.

Police responded, spotted the girls on an adjacent parking lot, and took one of the girls into custody on a previous juvenile warrant. The other girl was released on a formal warning for trespassing, with the couple’s approval, [Detective Lt. Shawn] Applegate said.

Authorities believe that the girl who was released on a warning later returned to the store and shot the couple.

A witness saw her enter the store, “then less than a minute later came running out, swinging in her right hand a revolver as she ran,” Appelgate said. She was last seen in the area carrying the pistol and items believed taken from the store. She was running in the direction of the Castle Point neighborhood.

The couple are in critical condition. The parents of the shooter convinced their darling daughter to surrender to police. Friends of the couple — whose business was looted during the Ferguson riots — have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for their medical and other expenses. Meanwhile, know this . . .

Leniency towards those who hurt you or your loved ones — financially or physically — may make you feel better, but it’s not likely to make the perpetrator change their ways. Or prevent a subsequent “revenge” attack.

And if you face an imminent threat of grievous bodily harm or death, don’t let your “better nature” prevent you from attacking your potential or actual assailant with every bit of speed, surprise and violence of action, no matter what.

      No I live in the area and would shoot anyone who tried to harm anyone around here….so that wouldn’t be good….nor is your comment

        Yeah, because letting animals like this run around without meaningful consequences is clearly working great.

        1. avatar Barry Gales says:

          Who said anything about letting people like this run around? Not I. Obviously the police got her so she isn’t running around.

          Do you appreciate it when people call you a “White Devil”? I didn’t think so, so stop calling other pepole “animal”. Thank you.

        3. avatar Pwrserge says:

          You just did. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The solution proposed by the OP would prevent animals like this from going on their rampages in the first place.

          Oh, and if you can find a better word than animal to describe this particular pile for fetrid sum, I’d appreciate it. Savage comes to mind, but even savages have some shred of honor or gratitude.

        Weird, you didn’t seem to do much shooting during the riots that ruined the area. Or do you just do all your shooting over the internet?

        1. avatar Arizona Free says:

          The best example of fighting back was during the LA riots. A family owned jewelry store (Koreans) brought rifles to the store at the height of the riots and fired back several times. They also set up guards using family and saved their business and way of life. If you cherish something fight for it. So to anyone who what’s to know what they could do here you go.

          As a Jewish girl, she directly experienced the overthrow of the Czar of Russia by the Bolsheviks, then Communists bloody takeover, and the insanity that followed.

          For those that don’t know it’s premise, “Atlas Shrugged” is about what happens to the United States in the future when the communist ideology takes over the country, or it’s spawn called liberal/progressivism.

          She fiction she wrote back in the fifties, what the nightmare the US would become, is the reality today.

        2. avatar pwrserge says:

          Not really amusing when the animal in question repaid kindness with murder.

        3. avatar strych9 says:

          Her attempted killing of those who showed her kindness is indeed sad.

          She will either be handed a slap on the wrist and sent forth to commit other crimes or be put in the system until the age of either 18 or 21 where she will learn nothing other than how to be a better, smarter criminal. That training will last 5-8 years and at the end of it she will be released back into society where she will be more violent and likely at least somewhat harder to catch when she commits her next crime.

          In effect, our criminal justice system will train her to be a better criminal and then release her to do whatever she happens to do.

          A worst case scenario is that she becomes so good at hiding her criminality that she becomes like Mosbey and is elected to office and hailed as “reformed” and therefore an expert in how to reform others and apply the law in a manner best suited to do so. Therein lies the gallows humor.

        4. avatar 16V says:

          strych9, Exactly why folks who actually analyze the data, have no problem with the death penalty for ‘children’ above say, around 8.

          By 13, they have developed into pretty much whatever they’re going to develop into. I remember the neighbor kid who killed small animals and shoved them down the basement drain at 10. He was a sociopathic attempted murderer by 20. Or the borderline violent retard who somehow got ‘mainstreamed’ into public school instead of prison. Killed a man with a roofers’ hammer in a hotel room around 19 if memory serves.

          It’s a great thing that we pretend that “anyone can be anything” and such frippery. The reality is that some percentage of the populace is genetically hardwired to be completely effed-up. When we see such things from a 13 year old, the real answer is terribly distasteful, but crystal clear. Kill it, there is no redemption, or lock it up forever if that’s all one can stomach. No human being is so callous about the value of human life by age 8, let alone 13.

          Both Dyseptic Gunsmith and 16V get it!

          Imagine what we could have done for infrastructure in our country with $5 Trillion!!! This has been my beef with government freebies all along … at least get solid work out of the people who get the “free” money. (Of course the money is not free: government stole that money from productive people.)

          So, you claim that you cannot find work that produces a living wage (potentially a legitimate claim) and you want money from government? Fine: you can have $3,000 per month after you WORK 40 hours per week (and I mean really work) building bridges, roads, parks, municipal water water systems, municipal electrical distribution networks, etc.

        4. avatar 16V says:

          uncommon_sense, We used to have exactly what I believe we all are looking to have happen – The WPA (Works Progress Administration). We have the money you need, we have a job for you to do to earn it, we’re going to build infrastructure that benefits us all.

  12. avatar barnbwt says:

    The editor opines “no good deed goes unpunished” but the fact of the matter is the failure to press charges led to;
    -Failed to get the one girl with an outstanding warrant arrested
    -Failed to adequately punish the girl with no warrants (I’m not going to assume she had no record)
    -Failed to secure the two of them against future crimes in the interim (sounds like they lurch from one crime to the next)
    -Failed to remove two extremely rotten apples from the community (majority of crime in an area usually stems from a meager handful of feral beasts)
    -Failed to legitimize the proper channels of authority & justice in handling these matters
    -Failed to document the incident which contributes to misallocation of police forces

    It truly is cruel to let a crime go unpunished, and this is the result. The narrative frames this as two mischievous kids nipping candy from the store who got carried away, but the events before & after reveal these two were likely every bit as scary & ruthless as big Mike Brown. The shooter was most likely directed by the local captain to go get even for the disrespect of getting a sister arrested.

      My but Progressive sensibilities are fickle, aren’t they?

      1. avatar anonymoose says:

        No, no, Koreans are the Jews of Asia (because they have lots of money, see themselves as “special,” and get pushed around by the larger countries), Chinese are the blacks of Asia (because there’s so many different kinds who quibble among themselves, and the vast majority of them are brutally oppressed by dictators hailing from their most prevalent ethnic group), and Japanese are the Germans of Asia (because they were, and in many cases still are, Nazis).

      Or it could be that 2 non fatal shootings is about the most mundane thing ever in american news and that’s why this was only covered on small regional outlets.

        That black interaction with police is far more likely to involve resisting arrest and struggling to get a weapon, yes?

Most of whom pay their mortgage, taxes, and bills. It’s hardly a horrid hood, it just that the residents have a good number of ‘undesirable’ friends/relatives who do bad things.

    Rather, why not social conditioning? Constantly being taught The Man!(TM) is keeping you down!
    You gots ta make em respcet you, bowa!

    Having nothing but one flavour of kool aid means you stop thinking that there could possibly be any other. The same narrative from every direction from birth creates the same result. Niggas gon’ nig. I’m not white, so I can say that, ha.

    The only kids that I ever met growing up who had shoplifted were, ironically, the privileged white kids whose parents never said no. Far as I could tell they were trying to gain some measure of petty control. The joke was all the little shops, usually at petrol stations had a sign with ‘No Shoplifting’ on them.

    My grandfather, the man who raised me in how2man, squatted down with his hands trying to pry the wall of the shop up. The cashier assuming a heart attack, ’cause dude was old says ‘Oom, are you alright?!’. My pa says ‘Ja, ‘Ja. I was just trying to shoplift, it’s very hard you know.’

    Heavy embarrassment, that’s how you do it.

    Also, why do guns come out for every little thing? Whenever there was a large crime committed such as large bank robbery, mass murders and such shown on TV we would have a question and answer session.

    How and why did they fail and what should you have done to do it right. Great parenting, mummy. Other kids were taught how not to do crime, I was taught how to do it right. Also, if I did it right I didn’t do wrong, but if cops show up at the door she’ll find me in the next country and cap me herself and then take my corpse to the police to confess. And go to jail.

    Somehow your mother in jail taking responsibility for you is worse than ‘ma respect homies’.

    Ah, youth.

    Not don’t it, don’t get caught; especially not by me. Don’t take chances on small fry. Hide like a bitch, die like a bitch. I ain’t no bitch, therefore I have never committed a crime.

    Not because I can’t, because it’s not worth it. I knew this at age 5, c’mon kids, really?

That’s what the country is really about, and if these race baiting idiots would surrender their gravy-train, we could get on with actually getting back to not caring about color, or some perceived oppression from hundreds of years ago.

      I could have a beef with most of the civilized world, as someone’s relative having tried (or succeeded) in killing one of mine over the last 600 years that I know about. Instead, I’m sane.

    Even having read this story, I can’t help but think that the storeowners did the right thing. She’s a 13 year old, there’s no sense in ruining her future over 20 bucks of hair.

    Even her parents did the right thing, convincing her to go back to the store to apologize, which makes me think that the problem isn’t at home.

    We’re missing part of the story, still. Who gave her the gun? Who lathered her up into such a rage that she decided to ruin her own life and engage in murder?

    The store was burned down during the Ferguson riots? Interesting… Mike Brown also assaulted an Asian store owner. I have always thought that he had some sort of arrangement whereby he would regularly steal from that store without consequence, since it was an anonymous customer who had to call it in. In any case, the community seems to be holding the threat of another looting over their heads, and scoring free weave as a result, until they finally got tired of it. And the community made good on it’s threat.
