An East St. Louis councilwoman and her boyfriend were charged for beating an elderly employee at Best Buy this week.


Councilwoman LaToya Greenwood – City of East St. Louis


KMOX reported:

It’s considered normal procedure by most to be asked for your receipt while leaving a busy store like Best Buy with expensive items. But Latoya Greenwood, 38, didn’t take kindly to the request.

Police say she began shouting obscenities at the 61-year-old Fairview Heights Best Buy employee at the exit door. Her husband got into the act and smacked the man across the face, sending him down to the ground while his wife didn’t flinch and kept the curse words flying.

The husband, 39-year-old Hickey Thompson, is charged with felony aggravated battery and is held on $20,000 bond. Greenwood is charged with disorderly conduct.

    Wow, well just you know the Democrat party is now looking at her with a big interest. To them she looks like an up and coming version of Sheila Lee Jackson, just perfect for Congress!

    Fox Television is putting together a new special, “When Democrats Attack.”

    I hear Fran Drescher is hosting it.

    We should ask all politicians for receipts to account for the $16 trillion they spent.

    I define civilization in the US by the percentage of blacks living within a 20 mile radius. The lower the percentage, the more civilized it gets.

    The funniest name I ever saw was in the Lakeview Area Chicago weekly paper. There was a grand opening for a Jewel Grocery Store, and a clown was there. They had a pic of a little girl with the clown and the girl’s name was Felony.

    My co-worker said, “Must be named after her father.”

    Obviously it was the councilPERSON’s first time in Best Buy.

    I have yet not to be asked for a receipt and a quick glance in my shopping bag EVERY time I shopped there.

    I say give her and her baby daddy a couple of free airline tickets to anywhere and then let them try to pull that shit on the TSA.

    @Claudia–I must be so immune to this kind of news that the one thing that caught my eye was calling the 61 y.o. “elderly”! Geesh, Merry Christmas to me, I am now “elderly”

    As a NICU nurse I had two babies I was caring for C’Asia and D’Asia. They were not twins, they had the same baby Daddy but different moms born within a day of each other! Begs the question, where were A’Asia and B’Asia??

    Best Buy should sue. But then Best Buy supports CAIR so this probably makes no difference to them.

    Carry on.

    My first thought of this story was the fact that Best Buy had an “elderly” person working there. 35 is “elderly” for the Best Buy stores here.

    My friend was registering kindergartners for the new school year. A black mother brought her daughter up to the desk. My friend asked her the child’s name. “Artaquia”.
    “How do you spell that?”
    “Rtakewee.”

    The name on her birth certificate was spelled ‘Artiquinia’.
