Louis couple wave guns at protesters marching past their home

Missouri Democratic mayor accused of intimidating defund police protesters after reading names, partial add...

Not only do peaceful protesters have to worry about police, they have to also be aware of violence from viliinates.

She had apologised on Sunday after she read-out the names and addresses of residents who had written to her about defunding the police, during a Facebook live video that has since been deleted, reported CBS.

Nearly 100,000 people have since viewed the same video, which comes after Mr Trump retweeted a video in which someone yells "white power" at protesters in a Florida.

For weeks, massive crowds in St. Louis - like those in cities across the United States - have rallied against police brutality and racial injustice following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month. To be clear, it is shocking and misguided for Mayor Lyda Krewson of St. Louis, to broadcast the addresses of those who dare to express a different viewpoint on an issue of public concern. An email and phone call from The Associated Press to police weren't immediately answered.

The protestors appear to have entered a gated and private street which led to the couple to emerge from their house and seemingly point their guns at protestors outside their home. Another called it "a move created to silence dissent".

Number of coronavirus cases passes 10 million worldwide
Nearly 2,500 new cases were recorded in 24 hours, taking the total to 220,180, health officials said, according to Reuters. China , New Zealand and Australia have seen new outbreaks in the past month, despite largely stifling local transmission.

As Krewson noted in a public statement, technically the letters became a matter of public record when she presented them at a public meeting per the state's government transparency laws.

While walking to the mayor's office, a couple aimed their guns at the protesters.

Krewson has since apologized for the action, but many are still calling for her resignation over the incident. We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed.

As they made their way to a rally at Krewson's house on Lake Avenue, they passed by 1 Portland Place, a gargantuan, white marble home that St. Louis magazine said had once been called "St. Louis' most dazzling mansion". They chanted "keep moving" to keep each other from being derailed by the armed couple.
