Last night was the third night of protests in St. Louis. People are protesting the acquittal of Jason Stockley, a white police officer who was acquitted of murder after fatally shooting a black man. More than 80 people were arrested last night, according to local authorities.
How bad is the violence?
Peaceful protests dissolved into mayhem after nightfall, with rioters resorting to breaking flower pots and throwing the pieces. Police officers were attacked with chemicals and rocks, sustaining “minor or moderate injuries.”
You have the right to protest and to have any opinion you want, but you don’t have the right to destroy property.
“The moment you smash a window of a small business and you mess up that owner’s effort and right to make a living, you forfeit your ability to be heard,” Glenn said.
