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.

Ayodhya case main litigant Mahant Bhaskar Das dead
He moved to Ayodhya in 1946 and got associated with the Ramjanmabhoomi- Babri masjid case in 1949. Hashim Ansari, the oldest litigant in the case, had passed away in July previous year aged 95.

Simon Rodriguez, 33, of St. Louis, said he felt obligated to protest what he called an inappropriate and immoral verdict.

Fans who purchased tickets for the Sheeran show through Ticketmaster will automatically be issued a refund on the credit card tickets were ordered on, the promoters said.

The band doesn't want to risk anyone's public safety by having the concert, and so things are off, at least for tonight.

UN Security Council condemns N.Korea over missile launch
However, the crisis on the Korean Peninsula has spilled over and endangered regional security and stability, as well as relations between other countries.

The verdict sparked widespread protests and prompted a number of cancellations.

A group of protesters walked through a mall "chanting and singing", and prompting police to close the entrance of the West Counter Center, located west of the city, according to the St Louis Post-Dispatch. Prosecutors said the officer planted a gun in Smith's auto after the shooting. Stockley claimed Smith was holding a gun at the time of the shooting, which took place after a high-speed chase. "I can't speak for no one else, but I know the system didn't work on behalf of Anthony Lamar Smith".

"However, after dark, the agitators outnumbered the peaceful demonstrators", he said. When he approached them, one man ran away, and Smith got in his auto and fled. "Until black people in this city get justice, until we get a seat at the table, there will be no peace in this city".
