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 β€œShut 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..
