Jason Stockley Verdict

In 2011, former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was charged with first-degree murder after fatally shooting Anthony Lamar Smith Smith following a high-speed chase. On September 15, 2017, St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson's verdict was released to the public. Stockley was found not guilty.

Shortly after the decision was announced, protestors took to the streets to voice their frustration and anger. Protests have occurred for several days throughout metro St. Louis, from the West County Center in Des Peres to the St. Louis City Justice Center downtown.
