No Justice, No Peace: StL Post-Dispatch Reporter Arrested in Sunday #BlackLivesMatter Riots

When Liberal Reporters Attack…

St. Louis Police arrested 80 protesters on Sunday night in the third day of rioting after the acquittal of police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted in the shooting death of heroin dealer Anthony Lamar Smith, who rammed Stockley’s police car with his vehicle.

Also arrested was St. Louis Post Dispatch reporter Mike Faulk.

Faulk wrote about his predicament last night.

FOX 2 Now reported:

A St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter is among the 80 people arrested by St. Louis police late Sunday after protests in the city turned combative.

The newspaper reports on its website that Mike Faulk was covering the protest and its aftermath when he was taken into custody as police cleared a street early Monday. The report doesn’t say if Faulk has been charged or released. City police say they will release a statement later.

Sunday marked the third day of protests following the acquittal Friday of a white former police officer in the death of a black suspect.

Faulk was trailing the rioters last night.
