Protests in St. Louis, 13 arrested

A protest broke out in St.Louis after an ex-policeman was acquitted for shooting and killing a black man in 2017. A judge ruled that 36-year old Jason Stockley was not guilty for shooting 24-year old Lamar Smith five times after a chase and crash.

Hundreds of protesters went to the streets to protest the decision. So far 13 people were arrested and several policemen assaulted. Officials said the protests are no longer considered peaceful.
