The shooting in STL is just 2 blocks from Ballpark Village/Busch Stadium, which hosts a ballgame at 8pm tonight. Yay!

St. Louis alderman Antonio French, who has made political hay out of the unrest in Ferguson, tried to paint the picture of “two St. Louises” colliding, referring to both the apparently drug-related shooting and Saturday night’s “Requiem for Michael Brown” operatic “disruption” at the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.

Whether at the symphony or a baseball game, it's becoming harder for one St. Louis to continue to ignore the other. pic.twitter.com/rKwEQDKNfY

@AntonioFrench are you equating a drug deal shooting to civil disobedience? Shame on you. Fix your house first!

@AntonioFrench If you're labeling the middle of downtown, in broad daylight, as the "other" St. Louis, we have other issues.

@AntonioFrench @CheathamKMOV – Welcome Dodgers fans to St. Louis. Visit the city for murders orFerguson for "Peaceful" rioters & thugs, LOL!

@enjoytheday99 @AntonioFrench @kodacohen wasn't this the scene of a shooting? Why would you equate with the symphony?

Time to quote Lincoln?

"A house divided against itself cannot stand." – Abraham Lincoln St. Louis, it's not enough that some live well. All communities matter.

@AntonioFrench sir i hope you have plans to nationally franchise… I can see this really taking off…

@AntonioFrench #ProTip it's not the state's responsibility to ensure that all live well….if you aren't living well enough, fix it.

@AntonioFrench Perhaps St Louis can start the movement so the rest of the United States can follow your lead. It is time.
