A horrifying moment captured by Fox-2 (KTVI) in downtown St. Louis yesterday shows an older woman being knocked down — and then trampled by officers who marched right over her.
The protests — which broke out yesterday during the day in downtown St. Louis and then in the Central West End at night — were a reaction to the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley on a murder charge. The decision quickly triggered an angry reaction.
Protests were largely peaceful throughout the day and into the evening, although they took a dark turn after 9 p.m. The incident captured on video shows something much earlier in the day, when only a few hundred protesters or so moved through downtown.
