Protesters are marching in St. Louis for the fourth day in a row following the acquittal Friday of a white police officer in an African-American man’s shooting death. “The days have been calm and the nights have been destructive,” Mayor Lyda Krewson said at a news conference Monday morning. The behavior she described is similar to that seen in protests in nearby Ferguson, Mo., after the 2014 shooting death of Michael Brown, which launched the Black Lives Matter movement into the national spotlight.
