Get Breaking News First
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – At about 4 p.m. Thursday, dozens of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department officers gathered downtown to get ready for the first demostration in the city for the Michael Brown shooting.
There were no SWAT uniforms, no AR-15s and no armored vehicles.
St. Louis city police chief Sam Dotson says there really is no need.
“There’s a vigil, there’s a march underneath the Arch tonight,” Dotson says. “We want to make sure that everybody that comes downtown, whether you’re going to the baseball game or the event under the Arch, see the metropolitan police department and know that it’s safe to be downtown tonight.”
