Once again, an American city is thrust into chaos at the behest of the radical left’s court of public opinion.
This time it is St. Louis, where for the second night in a row police were forced to contend with angry mobs of liberal protesters who believe that their own opinions on the court system somehow outweigh the reality of a judge’s ruling.
The violence began shortly after former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted in the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011 after a high speed chase. After domestic terror organization Black Lives Matter interjected unethical racial insinuations into the public hive mind, their litany of anarchy-loving followers chose to descend upon the streets of St. Louis seeking violence and upheaval.
In their second night of abhorrent behavior, Black Lives Matter brought extreme chaos to the streets of Missouri.
“For the second consecutive night, peaceful daytime protests descended into late-night violence with broken windows and thrown rocks, water bottles and garbage can lids following Friday’s acquittal of a white former police officer in the shooting death of a black suspect.“Shortly before 11 p.m. at Leland and Delmar, a small group of protesters threw chunks of concrete at police and broke windows at numerous Delmar Loop businesses. A chair was thrown through the window of a Starbucks. One protester was seen hitting a police SUV with a hammer. Police made more than a half-dozen arrests witnessed by reporters, including a protester who was carried away by officers by his arms and legs.
“As the chaos escalated, scores of police officers in riot gear pushed forward against the demonstrators just after 11 p.m. — about two hours after daytime protest organizers had congratulated their followers on keeping their demonstrations peaceful.
“By 11:30, about 200 police officers had pushed most of the protesters out of the area and the violence and vandalism appeared to be dissipating. The sidewalks along the vibrant area of restaurants and shops were strewn with glass from broken windows. “
The sheer size of the misguided mischief caused St. Louis police to withdraw their security detail from a scheduled concert by rock band U2, who was forced to cancel the show on account of those safety concerns.
This is just the latest in a long line of American anarchist organizations believing that their views on a court case constitute reality. Black Lives Matter has been at the forefront of this perversion of the American justice system for years, demanding that cases in which they find themselves involved should be given special judicial treatment.
If that isn’t the definition of racism or bigotry, I don’t know what is.
