A Missouri women, incensed about the level of crime between police and protesters, saw her video go viral.
Peggy Hubbard, who resides across the river from St. Louis, ranted about black-on-black crime in the region and how protests related to police brutality have gotten out of hand. She was appalled to learn about the drive-by shooting of a nine-year-old girl earlier this week.
Hubbard responds to the most recent set of riots after police shot and killed 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey who reportedly pointed a gun at police as he fled a crack house in north St. Louis on Wednesday.
Locals and ‘Black Lives Matter’ activists burned buildings and cars in response. The rioting continued toward a second night that included chants of “we’re ready for war”.
“They went to execute a warrant for an arrest for a very, very bad guy, when they came to get him, instead of going peacefully, having his day in court, he decides to pull out another stolen gun, shoot at the police, police shot back, and he was killed,” Hubbard said.
“There is police brutality out there. I’ll give you that. But, night after night after night, on Channel 4, Channel 2, Channel 5, Channel 30, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, murder, murder, murder, black on black murder. But yet you a**holes are out there tearing up your own sh*t. It’s not your sh*t. It’s other people’s sh*t. For a criminal. For a thug.”
