Galleria Mall Protest Arrest Videos

Richmond Heights, MO – 22 people were arrested at the Galleria mall Saturday after they failed to obey a dispersal order. The group was demonstrating over the acquittal of former officer Jason Stockley for the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith (videos below.)

Over 150 people showed up to the mall to protest, which started peacefully, but then people started turning over trash cans, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Officers on scene issued an order to disperse at 1:15 PM, and St. Louis County police say that around 150 of the people present obeyed the order. Others decided to remain and 22 people were arrested.

Videos of the arrests have been posted online with officers tackling people who ran from them. Demonstrators claimed that officers didn’t issue a dispersal order and were beating old people.

However, Nationwide Unrest pointed out that in Shell Eik’s own livestream they said multiple times that officers were issuing a dispersal order. Just one minute later in the live stream, they tried to claim that no dispersal order was given. You can see the clip here (WARNING: Audio gets loud):

As for the “tackled older woman,” officers did arrest an older woman after she assaulted officers who were making an arrest. They are spreading around one image of the video which makes it look like officers choked the woman, but video below shows that the officer just pushed her back and used little force.
