VIDEO: More Than 60 Arrested at St. Louis Area Protests

More than 60 people were arrested yesterday across the St. Louis area in protests over police conduct and racial relations that attracted activists across America.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 49 were arrested at two separate events in Ferguson that unfolded during a driving midday rainstorm. Other protesters marched briefly through Plaza Frontenac, assembled inside City Hall downtown, unfurled banners at the Rams game and gathered outside a fundraiser in Webster Groves for County Councilman Steve Stenger, the Democratic candidate for county executive.

Eight people were arrested at the Stenger fundraiser, two for having crashed the party in a second-floor office at 110 East Lockwood Avenue. Stenger faces Republican state Rep. Rick Stream in the Nov. 4 election.

They also converged upon two Walmart stores Monday evening and got into one, the Maplewood store on South Hanley Road, where they chanted until store management sent everyone out and closed it. At least one person was arrested. In Ferguson, officers stood across the front door of the store at 10741 West Florissant Road as protesters arrived. Six were arrested there.

Of those arrested, 24 gave addresses from outside the St. Louis area. Twelve are from the east coast, from Washington to Boston; four from California, two each from Kansas City and Louisville, Ky., and one each from Chicago, Greenville, S.C., Flint, Mich., and Charleston, W.Va.

So most of them are "outside agitators" according to the arrest stats. I've heard of sex tourism, Jihad tourism, even suicide tourism for the terminally ill. Now we have riot tourism.
