After violence erupted in St. Louis, Missouri over the weekend, former Navy SEAL and Republican Governor of Missouri Eric Greitens made it clear the only “safe space” for these hostile individuals is a jail cell.
Violent protests began Friday after former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder and other criminal charges from a 2011 case.
Looters and vandals have destroyed store fronts, street signs, vehicles and even threw a cement brick at police officers.
Greitens uploaded a video to his Facebook page early Sunday morning showing that his officers have been arresting protesters for committing crimes rather than allowing them to do whatever they want as was common during the Obama administration.
“Our officers caught ‘em, cuffed ‘em, and threw ‘em in jail,” Greitens said.
Greitens wasn’t bluffing either, as police have arrested more than 80 violent protesters in St. Louis.
“In the past, our leaders let people break windows, loot, start fires. They let them do it. Not this time,” he said.
The former Navy SEAL made it clear in his Facebook post that the people aiming to harm officers and destroy property aren’t protesters. They’re criminals.
“Tonight, the police arrested the vandals,” he continued. “At this moment, they’re all sitting in a jail cell. They’re gonna wake up and face felony charges.”
In the past, former President Barack Obama and leaders like him sat idle and allowed these “protests” to get violent.
After eight years of Obama siding with Black Lives Matter rioters, this governor’s reaction to looters and vandals puts the Obama administration to shame.
