Governor Greitens activates Missouri National Guard ahead of Stockley verdict

Governor Greitens activates Missouri National Guard ahead of Stockley verdict”

Governor Eric Greitens has taken the initial steps to activate the Missouri National Guard in anticipation of possible events relating to the Jason Stockley decision.

Stockley, who is white, fatally shot Anthony Lamar Smith, who is black, after a police chase on December 20, 2011.

Is Greitens's action a precaution or a sign of the approaching verdict? "Taking the steps to put the Missouri National Guard on standby is a necessary precaution", says Greitens. Prosecutors have alleged Stockley planted a.38-caliber revolver in Smith's crashed Buick after shooting him five times at close range.

Earlier this week, Gov. Greitens met with faith leaders in St. Louis and assured them the rights of peaceful protesters will be protected, but stressed any protests veering into violence will not be tolerated. "Taking the steps to put the Missouri National Guard on standby is a necessary precaution."' See also: Anthony Smith's Mother Asks, 'Why Is It Taking So Long?' Stockley is charged with first-degree murder for killing Anthony Lamar Smith at the conclusion of vehicle chase on December 20, 2011.

Police announced that beginning Friday, officers will be working 12 hour shifts in anticipation of civil unrest in response to the ruling. He claimed during last month's trial that he saw Smith with a gun and feared for his life. St. Louis television station KMOV reports that judge could rule tomorrow.
