Activists, instigating clergy, Black Lives Matter, snowflakes, political correct did not get the verdict they were “demanding” in the Jason Stockley murder trial. The judge declared the prosecution (a black female prosecutor) did not prove that Stockley did not act out of self-defense when he killed Anthony Lamar Smith.
The protest turned violent later in the evening after it moved west of downtown to the Central West End. The Central West End is a business district, with night-life and middle to upper class neighborhoods. Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital run along Kingshighway on the edge of the CWE.
Thugs with the excuse of wanting to hurt the economy of St. Louis and especially a predominately white business area chose the CWE to begin the vandalism. The St. Louis mayor lives in the CWE. Her home was vandalized late last evening. A brilliant act, considering the mayor had expressed empathy and sympathy for the protester’s feelings. But then, these protesters that vandalize are not the most intelligent of those on the streets. They are not protesters but simply rioters. Those that knocked out windows of the Culpepper’s CWE were just lawbreakers, punks, once again looking for any reason to show their filthy asses. The public library in the CWE was also vandalized. Windows were knocked out, rioters entered and flipped books off the shelves. The library is probably a place non of these rioters had ever previously visited or used. Their stupidity proves as much.
