Thousands protest in Brentwood, Maplewood

Several thousand (according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch) gathered Thursday in The Promenade at Brentwood and Maplewood Commons to protest for police and criminal justice reforms. They ended up on Brentwood Boulevard, avoiding Interstate 40/64.

  1. Wow, I grew up in Saint Louis. I’m stuck in crappy Overland Park, KANSAS now with poor air quality. Never seen anything like this all my years growing up there. It’s awful how people treat one another, given how life is so short for All of us.

  2. Did the police catch the guy in the truck that tried to run into the protesters? I saw the police with a white guy on the ground in handcuffs near the Home Depot parking lot. Wonder if it was him.
