#Ferguson Protesters Try To “Take Back” St. Louis Police Headquarters

In one of the dumber moves that what’s left of the professional Ferguson protesters have pulled of late, the mob tried to storm St. Louis Metropolitan Police Headquarters on New Year’s Eve.  The event was billed as a “March to the Arch.”  About 75 people showed up and rather than go east, they headed west to deliver these eviction notices.

SLPD Eviction Notice 12312014

Not sure who “We the People” is since there were about 75 protesters at that event and there are over 300,000 people living in the city at this time, most of whom are ready for all this stupidity to end.  Five people were arrested for trespassing and peace disturbance (one of them for assault as well) and the crowd was pepper sprayed when they tried to enter the lobby in order to occupy the building.  Images of the crowd recovering from pepper spraying can be seen on KTVI’s website.

In addition to attempting to evict the entire police department, the mob demanded a meeting with the police chief, the mayor of the city, or the president of the board of alderman and the immediate termination of two specific officers.  They demanded amnesty for the minor offenses committed by protesters.  They also want a citizen review board.

And they think they are going to get it by forcing their way into police headquarters and just demanding it happen.  Reports do not indicate whether or nor any of the demands were met.
