Robertsville Man Crashes In Fricks Parking Lot

A Robertsville man is accused of leaving the scene of an accident, then hitting a stop sign and driving into the Fricks Parking lot before being arrested inside the store. Police responded to the accident at Washington Ave and Main St. The 57 year old Robertsville man, identified as Richard Kiefer, hit the rear of a pickup truck driven by a St. Clair man. After the accident, Kiefer took off south on Washington but collided with the stop sign at the intersection with Locust Street. He then continued forward into the parking lot of Frick’s Market where he left his vehicle and entered the store. He was arrested a short time later for Driving While Intoxicated. The suspect was found to be impaired on a combination of alcohol and drugs.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
