In 1995, he co-hosted The Casino Queen Sports Grill weekday afternoons with KPLR Sports Director Rich Gould on 590 The Fan KFNS. Brian also worked as a reporter for Fox Sports News covering the Cardinals and the Blues. In 2000, McKenna became the newest member of The Breakfast Club with JC Corcoran on KLOU 103.3 FM. While at KLOU, he was as an analyst for the St. Louis Rams Radio Network pre/post game shows. Always the innovator, never the duplicator, he and Joe DeNiro introduced “Guy Talk” radio to the St. Louis market in the fall of 2003 with Midday Mayhem on 1380 The Team. Brian was also the host and producer of the “Rams Pregame Report” on KDNL ABC30 from 2001-2004. Brian recently hosted “Mayhem in the AM” at 590 The Fan KFNS and “Afternoon Mayhem” on 1380 The Fan2. He has written comedy for Joe Buck, been a guest on Oprah and appeared in an NBC mini-series. He received a Marketing Degree from Southeast Missouri State University.

Brian has been involved with many local charities and organizations including: Nurses for Newborns, American Cancer Society, National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Big Brothers Big Sisters to name a few. McKenna is one of 10 children and has 72 nieces and nephews. Brian resides in St. Louis Hills.

Jeff Burton

Jeff Burton was born and raised in Fenton, MO and attended Vianney, Eureka and Lindbergh High Schools.  He got a start in radio in Springfield, MO in 1986 and then came to St. Louis three months after 105.7 The Point came on the air where he hosted the Jeff, Trish and Thom Show until The Point was sold to Emmis. After 11 months on Red@ 104.9 Burton was reunited with Thom West for the afternoons on The Point where they remained as the No. 1 noon show in St. Louis for nearly seven straight years. Jeff had several broadcast opportunities outside the country that include Sydney for the 2000 Olympics and Dublin, Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day.  Later in 2011, Thom and Jeff started doing podcasts at thethomandjeffshow.com and on iTunes. Jeff helped launch internet radio in St. Louis via talkstl.com. In Jeff’s free time, he enjoys letting the wind hit his face riding a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard. Jeff resides in Eureka with Juli and their two daughters, Abby and Casey.

Do we have the right to just kill someone?

Currently George Zimmerman is on trial for killing 17-year-old Travon Martin in February, 2012. Zimmerman says he did it all in self-defense. Zimmerman says that Martin looked suspicious walking through the neighborhood because of what he was wearing. Martin was wearing a hoodie and just purchased snacks from 7 Eleven. What was so dangerous about that? Zimmerman called 911 and the operator even went on to say back away and they would send someone to check it out. Mind you, this is all the cliff notes version of things that have been said by Zimmerman in interviews or in court over the past few weeks.

What I want to know is why if you call a 911 operator and tell them that you see someone walking down the street and they look suspicious the operator tells you to back off why would you not just do that and wait for the police? When is it OK for someone to play "Dirty Harry" and take matters into their own hands? With all the conceal and carry laws being passed, will we see more people taking the "Dirty-Harry" approach and the law into their own hands?

I have lived in some major cities in my lifetime and I have not yet felt like I needed to follow someone in my car because they looked suspicious of doing something in my neighborhood. I am a cautious person; I have been robbed before and in saying that I am not rolling the dice in confronting someone. I have too much to risk by doing so.  I have a family and children. I have a daughter that I hope in my lifetime I will be able to walk down the aisle some day. I would just sit back, call the police and let them do what they are being paid to do and that is to protect us if we are in any danger.

Those are some of my thoughts, what are yours?
