Police Say Officers Injured in St. Louis Rioting


Starting on Friday, hundreds of Black Lives Matter activists protested in St. Louis in response to a judge acquitting a police officer who shot a back man. Multiple police officers were injured and property was destroying, including the mayor’s home.


The Missouri police officer in question, Officer Jason Stockley, reportedly said he was “going to kill this motherf**ker” on radio scans prior to the incident with Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011. Stockley was on trial for first-degree murder.
