StLouis cops terrorize restaurant owner

i]On Friday, Pi Pizzeria was gassed by St. Louis police officers who were marching through the neighborhood after protests took an ugly turn a bit further west. Owner Chris Sommers was there.

Yesterday, the pro-police group Blue Lives Matters put Sommers on blast for his response and the union representing St. Louis County police officers shared the link and echoed the call on its Facebook page. "There are reports of people calling the restaurants tying up their phone lines expressing their feelings about the owners anti-police comments. We have been busy protecting everyone's free speech during the demonstrations. Here are the numbers if you feel like your freedom of speech needs a little exercise," the police union posted, sharing numbers for Pi locations.

Sommers posted this in response on his Facebook page. We are publishing it here with his permission.

On Friday night, at approximately 11:15pm, the SLMPD shot at me and gassed me. They did this, ostensibly, because I was screaming at them from across an empty street to stop terrorizing my dinner guests and team who were dining peacefully on a corner devoid of protestors or agitators.

1. Sessions and DOJ are encouraging police to beat non whites.

One of these days the non white community of America will get tired of this shit.

2. Chris Sommer is white.

Sessions, Trump, and the DOJ are encouraging police brutality !!!!

Trump loves to say he is the 'Law and Order' president.

Translation: Trump promotes the U.S. being a police state.

P.S. As a white elderly female I am surprised that the non white community has been so peaceful.

I hate the police.

I fear the police.

I can not imagine how non whites feel, and justly so !!!!
