Top Stories: Rickey Smiley’s Daughter Got Shot & KKK Rally Goes Wrong!: The advent of COVID pandemic hasn’t stopped criminals from committing a crime. Not so long ago, American comedian Rickey Smiley’s daughter Aaryn Smiley got shot in Housten.
Another incident that happened was that in St Louis when a KKK rally went into shambles.
Let us get into the details of these two incidents.
Aaryn Gets Shot
Smiley was one of the three people in Housten that got shot during a road rage incident. Aaryn was headed to a fast food restaurant when the incident happened. When asked about his daughter’s condition, Rickey, her father later said:
“The fact that she’s laying up in the hospital and probably going to have to go into surgery… she’s just crying, she’s scared, and I hate it. I am just so thankful to God for covering my daughter. She’s in the hospital, but I could have been over at the funeral home today.”
Aaryn Smiley was in a car with her boyfriend, waiting to take a left turn when a vehicle came and started firing. Smiley got shot on her leg but, it was unintentional as she got mixed up in a crossfire.
However, when Rickey got to know about the incident, he wasn’t allowed to be in the same room as Aaryn due to the COVID threat. Regardless, Rickey was thankful to the Housten police for taking immediate actions.
We hope Aaryn is better now, and she gets healed mentally from this traumatic incident.
It is no secret that America has two diseases- COVID and Racism. While the entire country is enraged and protesting over the black lives matter movement, the people in St Louis are also rallying around.
The citizens are taking down statues of racist leaders of the white supremacy. However, according to our sources, a group of people opposed the removal of the bronze statue of King Louis IX. The monument is on Art Hill in Forest Park.

Altercation In The Rally
During Saturday’s rally, many Catholics prayed at the base of the statue and said that they want it to remain intact. A woman named Beverly said:
“This is a religious symbol for everything I hold dear. St Louis is a citizen of heaven. We have to take a stand now we can’t allow mob rule. This is totalitarianism.”
Many anti-protestors came forward and opposed the protestors from defacing the statue. This somehow tampered their plans to do the deed.
