JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri- The Governor has responded after numerous storefronts in University City’s Delmar Loop suffered broken windows during a second night of protesting.
“Saturday night, some criminals decided to pick up rocks and break windows. They thought they’d get away with it. They were wrong. Our officers caught ‘em, cuffed ‘em, and threw ‘em in jail.
In the past, our leaders let people break windows, loot, start fires. They let them do it. Not this time. Tonight, the police arrested the vandals. At this moment, they’re all sitting in a jail cell. They’re gonna wake up and face felony charges.
These aren’t protestors, these are criminals.
Criminals, listen up: you break a window, you’re going to be behind bars. It’s that simple,} Governor Eric Greitens said.
