The Missouri governor issued a warning to protesters over the weekend…..
“In the past, our leaders let people break windows, loot, start fires. They let them do it. Not this time. Tonight, the police arrested the vandals. At this moment, they’re all sitting in a jail cell. They’re gonna wake up and face felony charges. These aren’t protesters, these are criminals.”
Over the weekend St. Louis was rocked by protests over the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley of murder. Stockley was a white police officer that fatally shot a black driver after a police chase.
“We had leaders who wanted to give people a safe space to loot and to burn,” Greitens told Fox News Sunday. “Now in Missouri if you loot the only safe space you’re going to have is in a jail cell. If you are going to peacefully protest we’ll protect you. But if you’re going to riot we are going to cuff you.”
Over the weekend 80 arrests were made.
