St. Louis Pi Pizza Owner Trashes Police as “Dimwits” who are “Terrorizing Our Town” after Violent Protests
Local St. Louis pizzeria owner Chris Sommers of Pi Pizza is taking heat after trashing St. Louis Police Officers during the latest race riots in St. Louis last weekend.
Sommers called police “dimwits” who are out “terrorizing the town.”
Sommers said the protests were “very peaceful” until the riot gear police showed up.
The St. Louis community did not appreciate these comments by Chris Sommers.
Several people have called for a boycott of Pi Pizza.

Eleven police officers were injured last weekend in the first night of rioting including a female police officer who suffered a broken jaw.
Blue Lives Matter reported:
Chris Sommers, the co-founder of St. Louis’ Pi Pizzaria and ‘ZZA restaurants, has taken to social media to bash the police, criticizing their response to rioting in St. Louis.
In one tweet sent to us by a Blue Lives Matter follower, Sommers responded to a report that officers were chanting “Whose streets, our streets,” while arresting rioters.
Sommers said, “And we pay a pension for these dimwits.”
In another tweet he responded to a picture of officers in crowd control gear saying, “Standard procedure for @SLMPD terrorizing out town, hiding under tactical gear.”
That “tactical gear” they were hiding under was to protect them from the assaults that they endured all day. Eleven officers were injured the first day alone, with one suffering a broken jaw and another with a dislocated shoulder after they were pelted with bricks.
Chris Sommers has since deleted his social media accounts.
