And anyone who disagreed with the mob needed a police escort to get out.
That was the scene of “democracy” as protesters apparently conceive it during a meeting of the St. Louis County Council in Clayton, Mo., as a meeting called to conduct local government descended into two hours of near chaos and mob rule, according to an account by the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
The mob was on hand, of course, to “protest” the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, a black man shot to death during a scuffle with a police officer Aug. 9.
The case is in the hands of a grand jury – which now has until January to decide whether Officer Darren Wilson should face criminal charges. But the mob at Tuesday night’s meeting demanded the justice system be ignored and Wilson placed under arrest now.
