St. Louis, MO (KTRS) Two juveniles are facing animal abuse charges, after police say they beat a dog and posted a video of the attack to Facebook.
 
The video shows one boy slamming the dog into the ground two times. The boy then climbs on top of the pet and starts punching the animal repeatedly. The person filming the attack can be heard laughing off camera. (The video is posted below and is graphic. It also contains vulgar language)
 
St. Louis County Police were called by citizens who had seen the video on Facebook. At 3:15 PM, the video had been shared over 7,000 times. St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman says police cannot be in all places at all times, and they thank the public for bringing the video to their attention.
 
Animal Control seized the dog. They plan to examine the dog and treat it for any injuries. 
 
The juveniles are facing charges in Family Court.

GOP candidates ready for next debate in Chicago

Thursday, 27 February 2014 13:30 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - The four Republican gubernatorial candidates are gearing up for another televised debate just weeks ahead of the March primary.
 
Thursday's event in Chicago comes as two candidates lag far behind in money. State Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady also acknowledge polls that show them behind businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) and Treasurer Dan Rutherford (ROOTH'-ur-furd). But they say they're not worried.
 
They've vowed to defy expectation and are counting on a late surge. Dillard received an endorsement Wednesday from the Illinois Retired Teachers Association
 
The primary is March 18.
 
The debate is hosted by the League of Women Voters of Illinois, WLS-TV and Univision.
 
Gov. Pat Quinn faces primary challenger Tio Hardiman, an activist. Quinn's campaign says the Chicago Democrat won't participate in any debates ahead of the primary.

Missouri House approves tax bracket change

Thursday, 27 February 2014 12:48 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has passed legislation that could lower the tax bill for many Missourians by linking the state's tax brackets to inflation.
 
A bill approved on a 146-4 vote would require Missouri's individual income tax brackets to be adjusted annually for inflation starting in 2015.  Legislative staff estimate that would reduce state tax revenues by $26 million when fully in effect.
 
Although state tax rates have changed over time, Missouri's top income tax bracket has been set at $9,000 since 1931. That means all income over that amount currently is taxed at the same 6 percent rate.
 
The tax-bracket legislation now goes to the Senate. It's one of several measures lawmakers are considering this year that would reduce state income taxes.
