From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Protests turn violent in Delmar Loop late Saturday; second night of post-verdict strife

Unrest in the Loop
Laurie Skrivan [email protected]

Second day of protests after Stockley acquitted
David Carson

UNIVERSITY CITY • For the second consecutive night, peaceful daytime protests descended into late-night violence with broken windows and thrown rocks, water bottles and garbage can lids following Friday’s acquittal of a white former police officer in the shooting death of a black suspect.

Shortly before 11 p.m. at Leland and Delmar, a small group of protesters threw chunks of concrete at police and broke windows at numerous Delmar Loop businesses. A chair was thrown through the window of a Starbucks. One protester was seen hitting a police SUV with a hammer.

… As the chaos escalated, scores of police officers in riot gear pushed forward against the demonstrators just after 11 p.m. — about two hours after daytime protest organizers had congratulated their followers on keeping their demonstrations peaceful.

By 11:30, about 200 police officers had pushed most of the protesters out of the area and the violence and vandalism appeared to be dissipating. The sidewalks along the vibrant area of restaurants and shops were strewn with glass from broken windows.

By shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday, more than a thousand protesters carrying “Black Lives Matter” signs and chanting things like “No Justice, No Profits” were blocking the major intersection at Skinker and Forest Park Parkway near Washington University.

    Your description of peace, quiescence, and community just isn't vibrant or diverse enough for the modern epoch. The powers that be have decreed perpetual hate, war, and cacophony, in order to kill off all the peace, quiescence, and community that might have been enjoyed by the honest people that make this country work.

    It's been decades since tbe Delmar Loop was as you describe. By the time I hung out there in the mid to late 70's, it was already an enclave of artsy-fartsy liberals celebrating diversity.

    Perhaps based on perceived similarity to the (public) performance by ‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz.

    But is she aiming for the dude or the shop window? We need to know more about that thing in her hand. Must be light weight and I'm thinking more of a coital positioning cushion/back alley mattress rather than yoga mat.

  8. Watching You Tube live streams of the St. Louis protests reveals up close the incoherence of these “anti-racist” protests. Seems as though almost everybody has a “smartphone” or “tablet” to record their virtuous participation and probably about 80-90 percent of the protesters are “good whites” who carry their glossy professionally printed “Black Lives Matter” signs. “F… the Police” is certainly a popular chant!

    At one point a videographer asks some fellow protesters if they had been at the Standing Rock anti-Dakota Access Pipeline “protests” (as he had). Seems he travels around from protest to protest documenting the fight against white supremacy. Later the crowd is chanting “Racist Cops Has Gotta Go” and mistakenly starts chanting “Darren Wilson Has Gotta Go” before realizing that they are protesting St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, and later one goes on a rant about how the police leave their cars along the street so that demonstrators will smash their windows and bring out the “riot cops.” “Good Whites,” breaking glass, “F… the Police,” good to know that “This Is What Democracy Looks Like” (as the protesters chant).

    ‘Kill all white people’: Suspect in killings of five white men made threat in 2014
    August 30, 2017

    The 22-year-old man suspected of shooting five middle-aged white men since last year — including four on south Kansas City walking trails — threatened in 2014 to shoot up a school and “kill all white people,” according to court records.

    Fredrick Demond Scott, who was charged Tuesday in two killings and named as a suspect in three more, made those statements in January 2014 at Center Alternative School, as documented in a municipal citation for harassment.

    Scott, who is black, has been charged with murder in the deaths of Steven Gibbons, 57, and John Palmer, 54. On Tuesday, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced those charges, also naming Scott as a suspect in the killings of David Lenox, 67; Timothy S. Rice, 57; and Mike Darby, 61, co-owner of Coach’s Bar & Grill at 103rd Street and Wornall Road.

    But there never was any real separation in the first place, that's the problem. Too many visits to the slave quarters by de massa' on cold winter nights in search of dark meat killed that idea. These people shouldn't have been brought here in the first place. Let's call a spade a spade (no pun intended) and acknowledge that the worst mistake of all was accepting those 20 or so West African slaves from the captain of that Dutch ship that sailed up the James River in 1619--and all because the VA colony planter class wanted the cheap labor.

  43. A surprising number of whites participating in these events in St. Louis based on some of the video reporting on the scene. I am trying to figure out who these people are. The easy answer is Antifa, OWS types and various mudsharks supporting their baby daddy. But the deeper psychology behind the motivations for these whites to be involved in black only problems fascinates me. I can understand the Trump hate from them but what do they get from rioting about thug shootings? Or is the shooting just a pretense to express their Trump hate? I get the sense that these whites don’t really care about the black issues and are using them for their own self aggrandizement. It is an interesting phenomena.

  45. As much as I don’t like illegal immigration, I would say San Antonio and El Paso have it way over St Louis. San Ant has a lower poverty rate than New York City and its more native born Latinos than most big towns. I think that we should go more for Latinos since there are many that don’t like illegal immigration. Trump only won 8 percent of the black vote and about 29 percent of the Latino vote.

    Best guess for this image: performance
     
    That's impressive insight for an AI.

    Perhaps based on perceived similarity to the (public) performance by ‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz.
    Or, replace the black and blue pad with a tennis racket and one can imagine a Williams sister.

    But is she aiming for the dude or the shop window? We need to know more about that thing in her hand. Must be light weight and I’m thinking more of a coital positioning cushion/back alley mattress rather than yoga mat.

    ‘Kill all white people’: Suspect in killings of five white men made threat in 2014
    August 30, 2017

    The 22-year-old man suspected of shooting five middle-aged white men since last year — including four on south Kansas City walking trails — threatened in 2014 to shoot up a school and “kill all white people,” according to court records.

    Fredrick Demond Scott, who was charged Tuesday in two killings and named as a suspect in three more, made those statements in January 2014 at Center Alternative School, as documented in a municipal citation for harassment.

    Scott, who is black, has been charged with murder in the deaths of Steven Gibbons, 57, and John Palmer, 54. On Tuesday, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced those charges, also naming Scott as a suspect in the killings of David Lenox, 67; Timothy S. Rice, 57; and Mike Darby, 61, co-owner of Coach’s Bar & Grill at 103rd Street and Wornall Road.

    This should be all the justification we need to make it so that saying “kill all White people” gets you put on a watch list or at the very least gets you banned from Twitter.

    Looks just like the beginning of the movie Detroit. I'm going to just go ahead and assume that an evil white policeman is to blame.

    If it is like Detroit, the racist outrage that will cause the riot won’t occur for another day or two.

    A surprising number of whites participating in these events in St. Louis based on some of the video reporting on the scene. I am trying to figure out who these people are. The easy answer is Antifa, OWS types and various mudsharks supporting their baby daddy. But the deeper psychology behind the motivations for these whites to be involved in black only problems fascinates me. I can understand the Trump hate from them but what do they get from rioting about thug shootings? Or is the shooting just a pretense to express their Trump hate? I get the sense that these whites don't really care about the black issues and are using them for their own self aggrandizement. It is an interesting phenomena.

    I’ve concluded that the best solution is racial separation.
     
    So did Thomas Jefferson -- in Notes on the State of Virginia. He had this problem figured out in 1781.

    But there never was any real separation in the first place, that’s the problem. Too many visits to the slave quarters by de massa’ on cold winter nights in search of dark meat killed that idea. These people shouldn’t have been brought here in the first place. Let’s call a spade a spade (no pun intended) and acknowledge that the worst mistake of all was accepting those 20 or so West African slaves from the captain of that Dutch ship that sailed up the James River in 1619–and all because the VA colony planter class wanted the cheap labor. Sound familiar?

  52. I hate to imply that the protesters are exercising a modicum of restraint, but the lack of firearm discharges is notable. Missouri, like Virginia, is a pretty gun-friendly state.

    The gun-grabbers always warn us that every disagreement in places less civilized than New York or San Francisco is liable to devolve into a wild-west-style shootout, but that doesn’t happen in these types of riots.

    Are these people perhaps marching under rules of engagement set out by George Soros? Wouldn’t it be in his interest to sacrifice a few BLM/Antifa members as cannon fodder to try to advance the gun control agenda on top of all the rest of it? I really don’t understand.

    It used to be with these "vibrant" manifestation that the sneaker store was the first to be trashed and looted, followed by the jewelry and liquor stores. I am heartened to see Starbucks getting such notice from the vibrant crowd.
