St. Louis Erupts In Protests

Wochit Headline News - Sunday, 17 September 2017  (6 days ago)
ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - Activists marched peacefully through a suburban St. Louis-area shopping mall on Saturday, hours after police clashed with a crowd protesting the acquittal of a white former policeman accused of murdering a black man. In a second day of demonstrations over a judgeโ€™s ruling in the 2011 case, hundreds of people snaked through the West County Center in the St. Louis suburb of Des Peres, chanting โ€œShut it downโ€ and waving fists in the air. Police were out in force but did not tussle with protesters, unlike the previous night, when nine city officers and a state trooper were injured and at least 23 people were taken into custody.
