Protesters took to damaging a police car in St. Louis, Missouri, on Friday, during a protest against the court decision to acquit the police officer who shot dead Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011. Police arrested 13 protesters whilst four officers were injured during the protest.
Smith was shot dead in his car in 2011 by former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, in what was claimed as “self... Еще-defence.” Stockley told the court that he shot Smith believing that the 24-year-old African-American was reaching for a gun in his car.
Whether Smith was in possession of a firearm remained the most controversial element of the case, with opponents arguing that the firearm found in Smith’s vehicle was planted by the policeman. The judges ruled that “an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly.”
