Violence Wins! St. Louis mayor to meet with protesters after nights of violence

Written by  Reuters

ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - Activists in St. Louis plan to voice their concerns directly to the mayor on Tuesday over the acquittal of a white policeman who shot a black man to death, a verdict that sparked four night of violent protest.

Mayor Lyda Krewson will speak with residents at a town hall meeting at a local high school, hoping to defuse tensions in a city where demonstrators have clashed with police and destroyed property.

“Let’s show up and hold Mayor Lyda Krewson accountable,” Resist - STL, an activist group, said on Facebook.

The town hall meeting comes four days after a judge found former police officer Jason Stockley, 36, not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 killing of Anthony Lamar Smith, 24.

Largely peaceful protests during the day have turned violent at night with some demonstrators carrying guns, bats and hammers, smashing windows, clashing with police and blocking traffic.

Police arrested 123 people on Sunday, when officers in riot gear used pepper spray on activists who defied orders to disperse following larger, peaceful protests. Several hundred people marched again on Monday night in a peaceful demonstration as on-and-off rain appeared to keep some at home.

If the Mayor or any other officials "meet" with these "protesters" they are making a huge error in judgement. We must not allow these thugs to call the plays. They should be told go get off of the streets, stop tearing personal and private property up or be willing to suffer from some "lead poisoning"......all of this is being generated by Bozo and Soros to help them achieve their agenda, which is to bring America down. Stand firm and shoot to kill.

The Armed Militia (citizenry) needs to be sworn by the Mayor and be given strict orders and guidelines on when to use deadly force. When these miscreants cross the line, SHOOT TO KILL!

This will "tune them up", and fast!

Each of the pastors leading these "riots" should be required to read Judge Wilson's ruling and jail them until they have read it as part of a sentence. (Protestors read exactly what your advocate, Antonio French, testified about). The ruling is very clear & fair, however the Post Dispatch never prints the exact truth and thus this destruction of innocent business' being vandalized, and that hurts the people who supposedly this ist to help. I would have used fire hoses the first night and dispersed the crowds and if they didn't arrest them. I ask everyone who sympathizes with these so called protesters to read the ruling.

Then get on your knees and ask Jesus for forgiveness and also ask the Lord Jesus to convict these pastors of their sins and to teach the true Words of Jesus. We need the Lord and reasonable men to change St. Louis' climate & leadership. Please Pray. Art LeBeau, Villa Ridge, MO (Christian & Conservative)

This is why people are moving out of liberal cesspool cities. The leftists are crowds of people that were never taught to be responsible for their actions.

At one time in this country the news media would get the facts out to the citizen's...sadly they NO longer do that, they have been corrupted to pass on propaganda to benefit the democrat party, which has been corrupted to enrich the political class....by ever increasing the confiscation of the citizen's wealth, and to buy evermore welfare votes....it is a viscous circle of corruption that will cause a second civil war!

Very true...but the authorities will not act...everyone has been taught political correctness, and would rather bend over for the thugs...one day the citizen's of this nation will get fed up with that tactic...just saying?

Big mistake meeting with these thugs. They will simply turn the event into a non-discussion and shout down any logical response. They are very predictable.

They break the law by smashing store front windows, looting, harming Police and what do we do, appease them and treat them like royalty, and you wonder why this behavior keeps happening and gets worse every time. The Mayor of St. Louis is a Coward.

George Soros gangs at work. Obummer started this racial war and Soros pays them to riot. Bring on the National Guard.

ALL THUGS
PEOPLE WHO DESTROY PEOPLES PROPERTY SHOULD BE SHOT
NO QUESTIONS ASKED
ITS THE TAXPAYERS, WHO ARE PAYING FOR CITY AND COUNTY EQUIPMENT BEING DESTROYED
IT IS SHOP KEEPERS AMD OWNERS WHOSE LIVES ARE BEING DESTROYED AND PAYING LARGER INSURANCE PREMIUMS
THESE PEOPLE PAY NOTHING-MOST PROBABLY ON WELFARE/BUSED IN-CARING NOTHING ABOUT HARD WORKING CITIZENS OF THE CITY

VIOLENT people CANNOT be permitted to change a judicial decision. NO ONE should be charged through the "Courts of Public Opinion", they weren't there, they DO NOT KNOW ALL THE FACTS. They are DEMANDING "THEIR WAY"....our Country cannot take this any longer.
Rules are Rules.
Courts rule...the outcome May not be what YOU want, decisions might be justified or not, but it IS OUR PROCESS....and DOES WORK MOST OF THE TIME.

THIS is when the federal Department of Justice needs to step in, enforce the rule of law and if necessary open up a special camp for those who would riot and cause damage, harm to the city and its citizens; then prosecute them as hate crimes to the fullest extent of the law. IF this is NOT nipped in the bud, then we are moving down that road to a much larger confrontation, and it will NOT be pretty.
