Couple draw guns at crowd heading to St. Louis mayor’s home

ST. LOUIS (AP)

A white couple pointed guns at protesters in St. Louis, Missouri, as the group marched toward the mayor’s home, demanding her resignation after she publicly read the names and addresses of several residents who supported defunding the police department.

A social media video showed the armed couple standing outside their home Sunday evening, shouting at protesters, while people in the march urged the crowd to ignore them.

Protesters were heading toward Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home, chanting, “Resign Lyda, take the cops with you."

Resignation demands come after a Facebook Live briefing, where Krewson read the names and addresses of several residents who wrote letters to the mayor suggesting she defund the police. Krewson apologized, stating she didn’t “intend to cause distress.”

  1. How about tell the whole story. The so called protesters broke down a gate to the gated “private community” and we’re trespassing which means they are no longer protesters but criminals. The couple have been identified as the McCloskeys who only armed themselves when they saw several of the so called protesters were armed and feared for their lives. These are important facts that should have been covered instead you made the 60+ year old couple look like gun happy white people. Just tell all the facts and quit trying to control the narrative.
