Outrage over police shootings and accountability boils over again in St. Louis

“Protesters gathered for a fourth straight day in downtown St. Louis to denounce the acquittal of Jason Stockley, a white former St. Louis police officer who was tried for the 2011 fatal shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith. William Brangham talks to Tony Messenger of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about the case and the broader concerns about police brutality that are driving these protests.

  • WILLIAM BRANGHAM:

    Anger over police shootings and whether officers are being acquitted too easily in some cases is boiling once again.

    For a fourth straight day, there were protests in Saint Louis over a judge’s decision that was issued Friday. It’s at least the fifth case around the country since May where an officer was not convicted or found guilty in a high-profile shooting.”
