Protesters were met by St Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson on July 3 as they congregated outside her home calling for her resignation.
Krewson has been the subject of criticism since June 26 when she read out the names and addresses of those petitioning to defund the police force during a live video briefing.
According to Craig Phelps, a cameraman who captured footage of Krewson’s interaction with protesters, the mayor arrived on the scene as protesters were leaving, at around 11 pm.
He said, “A fire truck and police officers arrived immediately behind her [though] the fire department left without taking any action. After she checked her front porch, police escorted her on foot as she got back in her vehicle and left.” Credit: Craig Phelps via Storyful
