If you’re not familiar with the St. Louis Street Rally, well, this protest was organized by Trans Lives Matter (yes, there’s an organization with that name) following the shooting of Kiwi Herring. Kiwi Herring used to be a black transgender who ended up getting shot and killed by a police officer as the latter was responding to a domestic disturbance call. The thing is, Kiwi Herring was shot dead AFTER she cut the officer, making for the nineteenth transgender/transsexual killed in 2017.
So, to make things clear: Kiwi Herring attacked and cut a police officer and then the officer shot her (or whatever pronoun is correct in the modern parlance).

The progressive left was very disturbed by the happening and they’ve decided to do something about “police violence”.

So, on Wednesday, Trans Lives Matter organized a protest against police brutality or something along these lines in St. Louis city’s Grove neighborhood. By all means, this was an illegal assembly (without a permit) and the Trans Lives Matter operatives decided to protest in the middle of the street, more precisely on Chouteau and Manchester which are two of the city’s busiest streets.
Unfortunately, one of the protesters was hit by a car (a black Mercedes Benz) because he refused to get out of the street. The driver was arrested by St. Louis police and he’s currently into custody. The person that got hit suffered minor injuries. However, it’s worth noticing that the car stopped initially, but it was then surrounded by the mob, the driver panicked most probably and tried to escape, when the victim ended up on the hood of the car:

The language of the progressives is absolutely delightful:

My God. A car just drove through a crowd who gathered for a candlelight vigil at Manchester & Sarah to honor the killing of #KiwiHerring.

If you were wondering what’s a cis white male, well, in newspeak that means a (horribile dictu) straight white guy. You know, the people who cause literally ALL the problems in the world, according to the enlightened leftists.
