Louis Mayor Says Sorry for Doxing Protesters During Livestreamed Q&A

A white couple pointed guns at protesters in the U.S. city of St Louis as a group marched toward the mayor's home to demand her resignation after she read the names and addresses of several residents who supported defunding the police department during an online briefing.

Patricia is a member of the Missouri Bar Association ethics-review panel and Mark is now representing a black man who was kicked by a St. Louis police officer while trying to surrender in April 2019. The city's politician is facing calls for her resignation after she doxxed people who wanted to defund the police department.

President Donald Trump shared a tweet on Monday morning of a white St. Louis couple brandishing and pointing their guns in the direction of protesters against anti-Black racism and police violence who were marching toward the mayor's office.

For weeks, massive crowds in St. Louis - like those in cities across the United States - have rallied against police brutality and racial injustice following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month.

The group of protesters apparently crashed the gate into the neighborhood, as the incident took place on a private street, Portland Place, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. A petition demanding Krewson's resignation has already accumulated more than 26,800 signatures in less than 24 hours. "It's a move created to silence dissent, and it's risky".

Scheduled in St. Louis for the following day was a rally involving the far-right Proud Boys, a group with a history of assaulting leftist protesters. We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed.

The names and letters are considered public records but Krewson's actions received a heavy backlash.

Krewson was doing her regularly scheduled press conference about the coronavirus on Friday when she was asked about the protests.

The home belonged to a pair of lawyers in 2018, according to a profile published at the time by St. Louis Magazine. They chanted "keep moving" to keep each other from being derailed by the armed couple.
