St Louis Police Troll Those They’re Arresting: “Whose Streets? Our Streets”

Nothing says protesting like destroying your own neighborhoods, AmIRight?

St. Louis officers chant ‘whose streets, our streets’ while arresting protesters

After a third night of violence and unrest in St. Louis, about 100 protesters marched in silence along downtown streets Monday during the morning rush hour. Once they reached City Hall, the silence gave way to chants for justice.

Overnight Sunday, police arrested more than 80 people after a peaceful protest turned violent as night fell. In a concentrated area downtown, some protesters smashed windows and overturned trash cans, while others threw chemicals and rocks at police, authorities said.

Color me shocked that it turned violent.

Some protesters complained that police were unnecessarily aggressive. Further inflaming tensions, a St. Louis photographer reported he and others heard police chant “whose streets, our streets” after making some arrests.

Obviously, tons of liberals and the “activists” are melting down over this, but, as someone in the WP comments notes

I applaud the officers’ exquisite sense of irony.

As do I.

    80 arrests isn’t even a good start, 800 MIGHT have sent the message to the rioters that such behavior will not be tolerated. The good folks who are just going about their everyday business have at least as much of a right to be able to do so as the ‘demonstrators’ do to air their grievances.

    Just more unprofessional behavior from St. Louis’ famously unprofessional police force.

    Why was the only DNA from the gun taken from the dead man’s car from the killer, Jason Stockley?

    Anyway, the laws in Missouri protecting cops from charges of abuse are a disgrace, but it’s a Republican state.

      Yep, the St. Louis police really should be a lot nicer to those rioters breaking the law.

    • Dana says:

      The verdict in the case was not rendered by some out-of-control jury, but by a judge, who took weeks examining the evidence presented by both the prosecution and defense, and concluded that the state had not proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

      The judge was quite aware that an acquittal could lead to mass protests, but still found that he had to follow the law. Perhaps the case wasn’t quite as open-and-shut as the left seem to believe.

      • Jeffery says:

        An attorney who has argued before Judge Wilson remarked that he always considered the judge fair and reasonable, and that the judge made his decision based soundly on Missouri law. The laws of Missouri that protect abusive cops are the problem, not Judge Wilson’s ruling.

        Clearly, former cop Jason Stockley shot and killed Anthony Smith and may have planted a gun in the car. According to Missouri law Stockley was justified in killing Smith.

        As St. Louis cops kill more black men the protests will re-erupt and the police state will respond.

    They sure do support their gun toting heroin dealers running from the cops, in St Louis
