BOGUS MONEY TO CATCH THIEVES

Keeping 22 counterfeit silver dollars in his home for years for the purpose of trapping burglars, resulted in Henry Politte, of De Soto, Mo., being called before the Federal Grand Jury yesterday to explain where he secured them and how they came to get into circulation in the city from which he hails.
While the testimony of Politte may cause his nephew to serve a term in the penitentiary, he exonerated himself and explained a novel scheme to catch midnight intruders.
Politte related the entire story before the Grand Jury, and when he was dismissed by that official body, he declared that he would never again attempt to trap burglars with bogus money, and that he would also sever all friendly relations with spurious coins.
In discussing the incident which nearly caused his arrest on a charge of operating a counterfeiting plant. Politte said, " The money which I kept for several years was kept for the purpose of trapping burglars. It has been reported that I kept a great amount of money in my home, and as a result I have been visited by robbers on many occasions."
" The counterfeit money was to prevent me from being murdered by thugs, and also to assist in apprehending the thieves. I knew if burglars came to my home and demanded money and if I failed to comply with their demands I would probably be assaulted and possibly killed."
" I intended to give the counterfeit money to burglars in the event that any entered my home, and I thought if they passed it in De Soto, it would likely lead to their arrest."
" Last June, however, when I was away from home, Eli Politte, my nephew, entered my house and took the bogus money. He then went downtown and divided it with James Jarvis. Within a few hours every merchant in town had received one of the dollars."
" The Government officers learned of the money being in circulation, arrested my nephew, and had it not been for the fact that I had informed a number of friends of my trap to capture a burglar, I would also have been arrested."
Eli Politte admitted to the Government authorities that he had stolen the money and had also passed it.
Five dollars of the amount was passed on Henry Politte some years ago at a picnic. The other, he says, was given to him by Mrs. CaToure, wife of the counterfeiter who was arrested in De Soto for operating a counterfeiting plant in that city.
The money is said to have been the best counterfeit recovered in many years.

St. Joseph Daily News January 6, 1886

THE UNION STAR SHOOTING

On the day following Christmas the Daily News contained the particulars of a shooting on Christmas at Union Star. Buck and Fost Hyder were shot by Fisk Miller, the marshal of the town. In a day or two of this publication it was reported that no shooting had occurred and that Buck Hyder had only broken his leg. Since that time, however, it has leaked out that they were both shot by Miller.
Fost Hyder denied being shot, but the ball struck him in the back and when he arrived at his home he immediately went to bed. He would not confess that he was injured and his wounds were not dressed. The wounds were not severe, but blood poison has set in and it is thought that he cannot recover.
His brother Buck is also at death's door. It appears that the Hyders threatened to kill Miller on the day before Christmas and that they went to Union Star for that purpose.

Morning[[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Shooting_of_Michael_Brown&action=e dit&section=2"]edit[/URL]]

Surveillance video which was publicly released in the 2017 documentary film Stranger Fruit shows Michael Brown walking into Ferguson Market and Liquor at 1:13 a.m., twelve hours before he entered the store for the final time. The footage shows Brown handing a young clerk a brown package, believed by the filmmaker to be marijuana, and then receiving an unpurchased package of cigarillos from the store. After the video was rediscovered and made public in 2017, some, including Brown's family, said they believed Brown had left the package there for safekeeping and later returned to retrieve it. The store owner disputed this through an attorney who dismissed claims that the store traded him "cigarillos for pot." The lawyer claimed "[t]he reason he [Brown] gave it back is he was walking out the door with unpaid merchandise and they [the staff] wanted it back."[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Wrinkle-26"][SIZE=2][26][/SIZE][/URL] The store's attorney said the video had been in the hands of Brown's family and law enforcement since the initial investigation, and said the video had been edited to remove the portion where the store clerk returned Brown's package to him.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-27"][SIZE=2][27][/SIZE][/URL] Following this, on March 13, 2017, unedited footage from the store was released by the St. Louis county prosecutor to try to settle questions.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-28"][SIZE=2][28][/SIZE][/URL]
Incident[[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Shooting_of_Michael_Brown&action=e dit&section=3"]edit[/URL]]

At 11:47 a.m., Wilson responded to a call about a baby with breathing problems and drove to Glenark Drive, east of Canfield Drive.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL] About three minutes later and several blocks away, Brown was recorded on camera stealing a box of Swisher cigars and forcefully shoving a Ferguson Market clerk. Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, left the market at about 11:54 a.m.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-KWMU.Know-30"][SIZE=2][30][/SIZE][/URL] At 11:53, a police dispatcher reported "stealing in progress" at the Ferguson Market and described the suspect as a black male wearing a white T-shirt running toward QuikTrip. The suspect was reported as having stolen a box of Swisher cigars.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL] At 11:57, the dispatch described the suspect as wearing a red [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Louis_Cardinals"]St. Louis Cardinals[/URL] hat, a white T-shirt, yellow socks, and khaki shorts, and that he was accompanied by another male.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL] At 12:00 p.m., Wilson reported he was back in service and radioed units 25 and 22 to ask if they needed his assistance in searching for the suspects.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL] Seven seconds later, an unidentified officer said the suspects had disappeared.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL] Wilson called for backup at 12:02, saying "[Unit] 21. Put me on Canfield with two. And send me another car."[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL]
Initially, reports of what happened next differed widely among sources and witnesses, particularly with regards to whether Brown was coming towards Wilson when the shots were actually fired. At noon on August 9, Wilson drove up to Brown and Johnson as they were walking in the middle of Canfield Drive and ordered them to move off the street. Wilson continued driving past the two men, but then backed up and stopped close to them.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-CBS.Suspect-31"][SIZE=2][31][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Autopsy-8"][SIZE=2][8][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-IBTimes.Johnson-32"][SIZE=2][32][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-USAToday.Cigars-33"][SIZE=2][33][/SIZE][/URL] A struggle took place between Brown and Wilson after the former reached through the window of the police SUV, a [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Tahoe#Police_package"]Chevrolet Tahoe[/URL].[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Recount-34"][SIZE=2][34][/SIZE][/URL] Wilson's gun was fired twice during the struggle from inside the vehicle, with one bullet hitting Brown's right hand.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Recount-34"][SIZE=2][34][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-WashPost.Chaos-21"][SIZE=2][21][/SIZE][/URL] Brown and Johnson fled and Johnson hid behind a car.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-CNN.Shooting-35"][SIZE=2][35][/SIZE][/URL] Wilson got out of the vehicle and pursued Brown.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Happened-36"][SIZE=2][36][/SIZE][/URL] At some point, Wilson fired his gun again, while facing Brown, and hit him with at least 6 shots.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Autopsy-8"][SIZE=2][8][/SIZE][/URL] Brown was unarmed and died on the street.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Recount-34"][SIZE=2][34][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-CNN.Violence-37"][SIZE=2][37][/SIZE][/URL] Less than 90 seconds passed from the time Wilson encountered Brown to the time of Brown's death.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-Newsweek.90Seconds-38"][SIZE=2][38][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.90Seconds-39"][SIZE=2][39][/SIZE][/URL]
An unidentified officer arrived on the scene and, 73 seconds after Wilson's call, asked where the second suspect was. Thirty-one seconds later, a supervisor was requested by Unit 25. At 12:07 p.m., an officer on scene radioed to dispatch for more units.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.Radio-29"][SIZE=2][29][/SIZE][/URL] Also at 12:07, the St. Louis County police were notified and county officers began arriving on scene at around 12:15 p.m. The St. Louis County detectives were notified at 12:43 p.m. and arrived about 1:30 p.m., with the forensic investigator arriving at about 2:30 p.m.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-NYTimes.Body-40"][SIZE=2][40][/SIZE][/URL]
Police dispatched a dozen units to the scene by 1:00 p.m. with another dozen, including two canine units, by 2:00 p.m. Gunshots were recorded in Ferguson police logs at 2:11 p.m., and by the ambulance dispatch again at 2:14 p.m., which led to the response of 20 units from eight different municipal forces in the next 20 minutes. As the situation deteriorated, the police commanders had investigators seek cover and detectives assisted in crowd control. At 2:45, four canine units arrived on scene, and the [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWAT"]SWAT[/URL] team arrived at 3:20 p.m.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.LeftThere-41"][SIZE=2][41][/SIZE][/URL] The medical examiner began his examination at around 3:30 p.m. and concluded about half an hour later, with the body being cleared to be taken to the morgue.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.LeftThere-41"][SIZE=2][41][/SIZE][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-Newsweek.Scene-42"][SIZE=2][42][/SIZE][/URL] At 4:37 p.m., Brown's body was signed in by workers at the morgue.[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Michael_Brown#cite_note-STLToday.LeftThere-41"][SIZE=2][41][/SIZE][/URL]
