Protesters just stormed St. Louis Metro Police headquarters
Four months after Michael Brown’s death, people are still demanding justice.
In a demonstration that is still unfolding at the time of publication, people swarmed the St. Louis Metro Police Department headquarters and briefly occupied the lobby.
Participants handed out a mock “Eviction Notice” and circulated a list of demands, including a meeting with either St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay, Chief of Police Sam Dotson, or Board of Aldermen president Lewis Reed—the first African-American to ever hold the elected position.
Protesters also called for the firing of officer Randy Hayes, who shot and killed 25-year-old Kajieme Powell days after Brown’s death in an encounter captured on video, and officer Jason Flannery, who, while off-duty one night in October, killed teenager Vonderrit Myers Jr. Police said Myers fired first; an autopsy showed he was shot six times in the back.
“Clear and transparent protocol when a person dies in police custody,” encompassing immediate “medical attention for victims” and the instant release of the involved officers’ names, appears on the list of demands as well. “They are common-sense demands,” activist Rasheen Aldridge told the St. Louis American. “We can’t ask anymore; we have to demand it.”
