Violent Protesters in St. Louis Arrested For Rioting, Destroying Property and Assaulting a Police Officer

Hundreds of St. Louis #BackLivesMatter protesters shut down Kings highway in the Central West End Friday night.

The protesters held a rally there in the Central West End restaurant district for a couple hours.

OUTRAGED PROTESTERS ATTACKED MAYOR LYDA KREWSON’S HOME IN THE CENTRAL WEST END!

Black Lives Matter thugs also hurled bricks at the police line.

The St. Louis Police department said in a media release Saturday evening that ELEVEN police officers were injured during the violent protests by Black Lives Matter thugs. Sadly, a 26-year-old female police officer suffered a broken jaw after a brick hit her in the face. Thank God no police officers were killed.

Protests spilled over into Saturday after Jason Stockley, a former St. Louis police officer was acquitted of first-degree murder charges in the shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith.

Protesters stormed West County Mall in St. Louis, forcing a temporary shut down. Macys staffers closed their doors out of fear as protesters tried to march into the store!

On Saturday night the protesters marched in University City “Loop” restaurant district.

The Loop is just west of the St. Louis city limits and is a very popular restaurant district.

St. Louis County Police Department says 7 people were arrested including 5 adults and 2 juveniles. Charges include resisting, destruction of property and assault on LEO.

St. Louis County PD said, “Individuals arrested on Saturday were not peacefully protesting in University City. Charges range from looting to assault on a LEO.”

Update: An earlier version of this story said protesters were arrested for looting. The St. Louis County Police Department issued a correction. “Correction: Charges ranged from rioting and assault on a law enforcement officer, not looting.”
