Wednesday night a frustrated driver drove his car through a mob of homosexual protesters who were blocking Manchester Blvd. in The Grove neighborhood, an area adopted by the gay community. The crowd formed and blockedl the street to protest the shooting of a black transvestite by police officers who found the man standing over a slain body with a knife - and who subsequently tried to stab the officers.
New York Daily News has a good article on the matter.
" A man has been charged with a felony after he drove his car into protesters in St. Louis on Wednesday night, injuring three people.
Mark Colao, 59, was charged with a felony count of resisting arrest by fleeing and two misdemeanor counts of leaving the scene of an accident and operating a vehicle in a careless manner, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Colao was arrested Wednesday night after he squeezed his car through a crowd protesting the death of a transgender woman at the intersection of Manchester Avenue and Sarah Street."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the driver was arrested after fleeing the scene. Three people suffered minor injuries.
Interestingly enough, Colao may well know St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
"The protesters were marching in the street Wednesday after a nearby vigil to honor Kenny "Kiwi” Herring, who was fatally shot by St. Louis police officers a day earlier after police say Herring stabbed a man and attacked an officer with a knife.
After the encounter between the protesters and the car, protesters hit the car and chased it as the man drove off.
Before Colao was charged, his name circulated on social media, along with a photo protesters found that appears to show Colao posing with St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson.
Krewson denied knowing him in a post on social media Thursday. City staff said they believe the photograph was taken at a campaign event where the mayor posed with many people she did not know personally."
One thing the New York Post article shows is that the protesters - who were blocking traffic illegally - were apparently hanging on Colao's car. See the photographs in the article. It appears to me they are not being "hit" by the car so much as falling on it - likely to generate publicity and claim that the "alt right" is attacking people with vehicles. They all saw what happened in Charlottesville.
This fellow probably drove down the street unaware of the fact that it was blocked until too late, and he then had no way to get out of the crowd, so he probably inched up until he could turn around, but protesters, ginned up by the appearance of a white male in a car, tried to block him.
That the mainstream media isn't making a big deal of this tells me that they couldn't find any way to turn it to their advantage. But the local media reported it as though the man drove purposefully into a crowd, likely a copycat of Charlottesville. The fact is, the lawbreaking was on the other side and police should have made arrests when they blocked traffic. But Lyda Krewson is a limousine liberal and the city of St. Louis is a hardcore Democrat city. There are two sets of rules that apply in postmodern America. If you aren't in the right group you are held to strict account.
