After a Missouri judge ruled that a former St. Louis police officer was not guilty of murder in regards to the 2011 shooting death of a black man, protesters lined the streets to voice their contempt over the decision.
Judge Timothy Wilson ruled that, although there was an audio recording of Officer Stockley saying he was going to “fill this motherf*cker,” it wasn’t intent to kill him, and was merely “ambiguous.”
As activists gathered to protest the grotesque behavior that police not only do on a daily basis, but are legally permitted to carryout, yet another example of just what folks gathered to protest against, was displayed.
Multiple camera angles show shocking photos and video coverage of an elderly, grey-haired woman being trampled by police dressed in riot gear.
Fox2now tweeted the following video footage:

Another shot from a fellow protester shows the scene prior to the trampling:
‘St Louis police arrested this elderly woman whose only crime was that she wasn’t able to move fast enough when the riot cops came running.’
Twitter responded, with most sharing in feelings of complete shock:
