St. Louis Erupts In Protests
Wochit Headline News - September 17, 2017
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 judge’s ruling in the 2011 case, hundreds of people snaked through the West County Center in the St.
Louis suburb of Des Peres, chanting “Shut it down” 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..
