This Sunday, a new event “Black Lives Matter” was organized in Saint-Louis, in the United States. Yet peaceful, the 300 demonstrators found themselves confronted with a surreal scene as they passed through a chic district of the city. Two Americans came out of their house, weapons in hand, and pointed them at the participants.
The couple were filmed by passers-by and the images quickly spread around social media. It must be said that the two residents are particularly virulent and upset. Very threatening, they literally yell at the demonstrators. The man holds what appears to be a semi-automatic weapon and his wife brandishes a pistol.
The demonstrators marched in particular to demand the resignation of the democratic mayor, Lyda Krewson. The latter had, in fact, read the names and addresses of the citizens who had written to her asking her to stop funding the police. Before apologizing and removing this information.
