Louis couple points guns at protesters near mayor's home

Louis couple points guns at protesters near mayor's home”

A social media video showed the armed couple standing outside of their large home yesterday in the upscale Central West End neighbourhood of the Missouri city. KMOV reports that photos and footage of the couple-one clip here-went viral on social media.

It is unclear whether the mansion's owners were the couple captured in the video of the protests, and attempts by The Post to contact them late Sunday night were unsuccessful.

Nearly 100,000 people have since viewed the same video, which comes after Mr Trump retweeted a video in which someone yells "white power" at protesters in a Florida.

About 500 protesters marched past the home on Sunday to reach the residence of Mayor Lyda Krewson.

Patricia is a member of the Missouri Bar Association ethics-review panel and Mark is now representing a black man who was kicked by a St. Louis police officer while trying to surrender in April 2019.

Protesters nationwide have been pushing to " defund the police " following the death of George Floyd and other Black people killed by law enforcement.

She had apologised on Sunday after she read-out the names and addresses of residents who had written to her about defunding the police, during a Facebook live video that has since been deleted, reported CBS. "It's a move created to silence dissent, and it's unsafe".

An online petition started over the weekend calling for her to resign has generated more than 40,000 signatures.

A shocking video has emerged showing a pair of wealthy St. Louis lawyers wildly waving their guns at peaceful protesters.

The names and letters are considered public records but Krewson's actions received heavy backlash.

In a statement Friday evening, Krewson, a Democrat, apologized for causing any "distress or harm to anyone" but said the names and streets the protesters lived on were already "public information".

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that", state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge (D) told the crowd through a megaphone, according to the Post-Dispatch.
