planning to gather again this evening in St. Louis, as they have most nights
since Friday. That's when a judge found a white police officer not guilty of
murder in the fatal shooting of a black motorist six years ago. NPR's David
Schaper is in St. Louis. He reports that many there are criticizing some of
the police tactics during the protests, accusing them of further aggravating
tensions while making mass arrests. DAVID SCHAPER, BYLINE: Landy Fort says he
was not a part of the massive demonstration downtown St. Louis Sunday night.
The 22-year-old from north St. Louis says he was just riding his bike around
to see what was going on when police officers asked him to leave. LANDY FORT:
And you know, I was like, OK, I'm on my way. So you know, I was getting ready
to make my turn. And they approach me again. And when they approach me again,
they got out. They got out with their sticks, with their batons, all of that.
