More Protests and Riots After St. Louis Police Kill Black Teen

Mansur-Ball-Bey-20221053

St. Louis police fatally shot a black teenager on Wednesday who they say pointed a gun at them, and later faced angry crowds, reigniting racial tensions first sparked by the killing of an unarmed black teen in another Missouri town a year ago.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said the shooting took place when young black men ran out the back door of a house where officers were carrying out a search warrant.

Officers ordered the pair to stop in an alley behind the house. One suspect pointed a gun at officers who then fired four times, killing him, Dotson said.

Crowds gathered at a nearby intersection shortly after the shooting and then again in the evening. After the shooting 9 people were arresting for disorderly conduct and blocking traffic.

The officers involved in the shooting were white, and have been on the force for 7 years.

    Now the race baiters think it’s ok to riot after a good shooting. They should all be arrested and charged with rioting! The book should be thrown at them and the editor who approved the high school pics featured in this article!

          And you’re a mindless twit, a whiner and an excuse maker seeking cover for personal and community failures. Keep posting about your horror flicks it suits you.

            1. You are mad because of a kid’s highschool pictures. That’s pathetic.

            2. Why don’t you go schooling your people on how not to seek cover for personal and community failures, you know those people Who whine loudly everytime they see a black person succeeding. Because they didn’t or their kids didn’t and “it’s so unfair how blacks get all the advantages and it’s SO hard to be white blablablabla”.
            Or my favorite when the media shows an unflaterring picture of a white criminal: “this is so unfair they do this only because he/she is WHITE!”

            And don’t tell me you’ve never seen this. It’s all over the internet.

            3. You really believe you are challenging anyone on here? Why do folks like you always come on black sites to argue? Why don’t you stay where people upvote your opinions? That’s Ć  serions question.

              First off I’l deal with your abject silliness about white people who whine about black success…I have never known such a person and most are made up fantasies by people who see nothing but race from the time they get up until they fall into fitful sleep. Pathetic race driven losers.
              You are making me laugh with your pointing out the media using baby pictures of black criminals but mug shots of whites…good point.
              I accidentally pulled up this site in a search about the St Louis shooting. I didn’t discover it was a black site until you pointed it out. I am notified when I am mentioned so I respond. Don’t worry I probably won’t be back, debating with biased dogma driven types is not very interesting.

                You are mad and exactly the type my post was refering to Lol.

                Good thing you won’t be back on clutch but i would suggest you to log off the internet for a while. It drives people crazy.

                PS: next time you’ll be foaming at the mouth at the sight of a white criminal mugshot think of me šŸ˜‰

                Bye bye Jacob !

    In my opinion, anyone who uses the terms “race-baiting” or “race card” in 2015 – yeah, we see you – is a fucking moron who should do the world a favor and jump off the highest cliff they can find.

      Those are the same cretins who pretend to cry about big government, but have no problem accepting every action of public servants with badges and guns.

          About what? Opinions are like what? And everybody has one and they all stink? Ginning up racial dissent based on a lost gunfight by a silly kid can’t help since once the truth is proven outsiders just shake their heads and say “more race based BS by activist”. There was a little girl murdered in her home not far fro this shooting…send the BLM folk over there.

            All black folks know each other, so I must know the BLM folks and send them over. Ok, I’ll let them know an internet stranger said so. LMAO!

    First, I send prayers and condolences to the family of the young teenager. People, who want to use the term “race-baiter,” as a means of them to obfuscate from the issue of police terrorism (and advance post racial lies, which is about minimizing the legitimate concerns of the black community while believing in the infallibility of the police institution) are totally wrong. We have a grieving family and hurt people in America, who are tried of economic oppression and police terrorism. The reality is that there should be an independent investigation and the family of Mansur Ball-Bey deserves nothing more than the truth.

      The truth will come out, it always does. Todays biased press seek inflammatory stories to stir the pot. It came out with Michael Brown and yet we still have marches and protest in the name of a thief and thug. News stories still carry the high school pictures rather than the gang sign flashing photo! Assuming it’s a cop hit rather than a necessary shooting serves no purpose other than to weaken your argument like the ridiculous black lives matter nazis. All lives matter.

        The truth has come out. The truth has come out that some police officers have used tear gas on men, women, and children. The truth has come out that there is a serious problem of police misconduct. Also, the truth has come out via the DOJ report that massive racism and economic exploitation is found among the Ferguson Police Department, which is why there has been an overall of that department. Michael Brown died and many people want to slander and disrespect his family. People are marching for an end to racial profiling, for the police to treat communities humanely, and for an end to police brutality in general. Also, black people are diverse and the vast majority of black people aren’t rapists, murderers, or nihilistic criminals. Crooked cops are thugs. You previous comments on other sites shows that you have a reactionary agenda. For youto compare Black Lives Matter activists to Nazis shows your ignorance, disrespect, and slander. You are a liar and a disgraceful person. This is my last response to you. I don’t agree with your agenda, cops aren’t infallible,and the truth is that the status quo must end.

          Your take on the DOJ investigation is mostly incorrect. My agenda is for everyone to take responsibility for themselves and their community not blame every problem on their race. There are bad cops and bad civilians. Race plays much less of a part than BLM or any other racist group cares to admit. This kid was shot because he pointed a gun at a group of armed men…not too bright…deal with it.

            ‘ … There are bad cops … ‘

            ‘ … This kid was shot because he pointed a gun at a group of armed men … ‘

            were you there … did you take part as one of the armed men.

    They always take other suspects who points guns at them alive but they stay shooting and killing black people.

    Hey editor deleting the truth doesn’t change it nor does leaving one side on an argument prove it.
