Demonstrators protested in St. Louis for the fourth night on Monday, outraged over the not-guilty verdict for Jason Stockley, a former St. Louis cop who’d been charged with murder in the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith.
Protesters initially gathered at the Delmar Loop, an entertainment district just outside the city, where some individuals had smashed windows during a demonstration on Saturday night. But organizers redirected the crowd to the Justice Center in downtown St. Louis, where some of those arrested during Sunday night’s demonstrations ― most on low-level misdemeanors for allegedly failing to disperse ― were being held for up to 24 hours.
Despite heavy rain, protesters demonstrated for hours outside the Justice Center, which is across the street from City Hall. The night ended peacefully.
We asked several protesters what brought them out on the fourth night of protests in St. Louis.
