Violent protests broke out in St. Louis on Friday night following the acquittal of a white police officer in an African-American man’s shooting death. Nine police officers were injured Friday, mainly by thrown objects such as bricks, water bottles, and rocks, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint on the house before officers in riot gear dispersed them.
