  • Missouri Governor activates National Guard before Stockley ruling

A former St. Louis police officer who was caught on tape saying meant to kill a man in December 2011 was found not guilty Friday for the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith almost six years ago.

The acting commissioner of police of the St. Louis Police Department, Lawrence O'Toole, said in a statement to the media late Friday night that his officers had responded to incidents in numerous locations in the city. In one video, shared by the local Fox TV affiliate, a line of police officers appears to knock over an elderly woman, then step over her as she lies on the ground.

A group of protesters walked through a mall "chanting and singing", and prompting police to close the entrance of the West Counter Center, located west of the city, according to the St Louis Post-Dispatch.

Saturday afternoon, Gov. Eric Greitens asked people to remain calm. "I am sobered by this outcome".

"Orders to disperse were given numerous times".

The march, which began peacefully, turned violent after police officers used pepper spray on protesters who were blocking a bus police carrying additional cops to the scene.

Jason Stockley, 36, who is white, was arrested in May 2016 and charged with first-degree murder, accused of intentionally killing Anthony Lamar Smith and planting a gun in his auto.

"This not-guilty verdict of a police officer who violently killed a citizen is another slap in the face to the black community in St. Louis - and a shot in the heart to the family of the victim", Missouri state Rep. Michael Butler said in a statement.

Police resorted to tear gas and rubber bullets to control the crowd as vandals broke windows at a library, a restaurant and a home.

On Saturday evening, police were out in force as demonstrators rallied in St Louis. Prosecutors also alleged that Stockley planted in Smith's vehicle a gun that was found to have his DNA on it but not Smith's.

"Violence and vandalism is not protest; it is a crime", he said. Stockley said he found a revolver between the centre console and passenger seat of Smith's vehicle.

Trouble flared after a judge acquitted Jason Stockley of first-degree murder for killing Anthony Lamar Smith. "It is on this occasion that defense motion "Black lives matter" (" The lives of black matter ") was increased in power.
