Riots in St. Louis after Stockley Verdict

Timothy Birdnow

Riots break out in St. Louis over the acquittal of a police officer involved in shooting a suspect in 2011.

This was inevitable. The rioters planned this well in advance of the verdict, and George Soros has been spending like a sailor to bring professional rioters into town. The media covered the march of a few paltry dozen marchers, who were allowed to block traffic in downtown in violation of the law. Cameras and hours of coverage swelled the crowds to high levels and rioting ensued. Is anyone surprised?

Lyda Krewson, St. Louis' limousine liberal mayor, is largely to blame for allowing the people to block the streets. They said they would shut st. Louis down and they tried to close the interstates but were simply pushed back by law enforcement rather than arrested. You have to start arrests early and strictly enforce the law to stop this sort of thing. They knew it was coming.

A pox upon the Democrats who run the city!

1 Thank goodness the local law enforcement people were allowed to do their job, and that the mayor didn't get in their way! It could have been different.

2 Mayor Krewson did give the protesters space - including allowing them to block traffic and thus gin up the protests via television cameras.  She shouldn't have; she should have made them gather in Keiner Plaza across from City Hall and dispersed them when they tried to break any laws.  It's not like she didn't know it was coming; they said they were going to do this.  But the State Police were tehre, and the National Guard courtesy of our current Navy Seal Governor.  It's quite different than the Ferguson days when we had weak Democrats up the line.
