St. Louis Couple Points Guns at Peaceful Protesters | NowThis

A white couple in St. Louis is going viral for pointing guns at and threatening peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters.

In US news and current events today, a couple in St. Louis has gone viral for pointing guns at protesters. The Black Lives Matter protesters were on their way to the Mayor of St. Louis, Missouri, Lydia Krewson, to demand her resignation, but en route they were accosted by this white couple pointing gun at protesters.

The couple pointing guns at protesters claimed they were protecting their property, though this doesn’t include the sidewalks and streets where the Black Live Matter protest was occurring. The couple, both wealthy lawyers, have become icons as the face of those who would resist the Black Lives Matter protests and George Floyd protests for reasons that merit further interrogation, but the picture is clear: This couple was willing to use violence to silence and intimidate peaceful protesters who are marching for equality and civil rights.
