Police in St. Louis, Missouri were filmed on Sept. 17 chanting, “Whose streets? Our streets!” and firing rubber bullets at peaceful protesters (video below).
David Carson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted a video of the chant, which is often used by groups protesting police violence.
The chant has been used by protesters in St. Louis for days as they have demonstrated against the recent not guilty verdict of St. Louis Officer Jason Stockley who killed black motorist Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011.
Carson tweeted: “I spoke with the commander at the scene, he said he did not hear the chant, but said chant was not acceptable, said he would deal with it.”
Twitter user SociologiGAL posted a video (below) of police firing rubber bullets at peaceful protesters, and added the caption: “Here is the video of St Louis police shooting non-lethals randomly at protesters. America?”
