After the acquittal of Jason Stockley came out Friday morning, some protests in St. Louis became violent.

Protests broke out in downtown St. Louis yesterday, and then more dramatically in the Central West End last night, after former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted on charges of first-degree murder. Eric Greitens said Saturday that police are dedicated to protecting peaceful protesters, but "if you assault a law enforcement officer, we're going to arrest you".

"Violence and vandalism is not protest; it is a crime", he said. Approximately 1,000 people went to the mayor's house, where windows were broken, and police in riot gear fired tear gas into the crowd.
