DAILYKENN.com -- Outpouring of anger from neither msm or "feminism."
The media has declined to publish an image of the victim, Geneva Richardson, nor declare her race, leading us to presume she was white.

FLORISSANT • A man who helped care for a 94-year-old woman in Florissant killed her by beating her and stabbing her in the face, then summoned an Uber to carry him from the murder scene, authorities say.
Tommie C. Coffer Jr., of Ferguson, was charged with murdering a 94-year-old woman in her Florissant home on Dec. 18, 2017.
The caregiver, Tommie C. Coffer Jr., 54, of the 1300 block of Hudson Hills Drive in Ferguson, was charged Dec. 21 with second-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Coffer and his mother both worked as caregivers for the victim, Geneva Richardson. They called authorities shortly after 2 p.m. on Dec. 19, saying they had found Richardson dead after going to her home on a cul-de-sac in the first block of Club Grounds North Drive, which winds through the Florissant Golf Club.
Richardson’s body was discovered in a pool of blood in the master bedroom. She had injuries to her head, and there was blood on the corner of a nearby dresser. At first her death appeared accidental, perhaps from a fall.
But in addition to blunt-force trauma to her forehead, medical examiners found three stab wounds to her face and cuts to her hands that indicated she had tried to defend herself from an attack, according to court records.
Coffer, who usually cared for Richardson on weeknights from 5 to 9 p.m., told police she was alive when he left her home the night before at 6:47 p.m. He checked his phone for the time he’d taken an Uber to it for police.
But at some point, officers began to suspect Coffer in Richardson’s death.
“There were some things that didn’t add up with him,” said Officer Steve Michael, a spokesman for the Florissant Police Department.
When he left in the Uber, Coffer had carried several bags with him, according to court documents. He had the driver drop him off near Suburban and Jean avenues, several miles from his home address.
Court records say police later found a trash bag, a purple latex glove, a blood-soaked pillowcase and a blood-stained black T-shirt on a burn pile near where Coffer had gotten out of the Uber. The purple glove, trash bag and pillowcase all match others found at Richardson’s home, Detective Sean Mayer said in court records.
Officers got a search warrant for Coffer’s home and took a steak knife and two washcloths from a duffel bag into evidence. They also swabbed a bathtub for DNA, and got a DNA sample from Coffer.
Police discovered several checks were missing from Richardson’s home, and found Coffer had three bank deposit receipts totaling more than $2,800.
Officers confronted Coffer about inconsistencies, and he asked to speak to a lawyer. Police arrested Coffer for Richardson’s murder on Dec. 20, Michael said.
The department chose not to publicize the homicide.
