Cardinals Fans Explode On Protesters Seeking Punishment For Cop Who Shot And Killed Unarmed Teen
Missouri: Come for the something, leave because of the inconceivable amount of racial tension. A clash between Ferguson protesters and the angry/stupid racial majority that was exiting a baseball game last night outside Busch Stadium.
[via Mediaite] Ferguson protestors emerged at Busch Stadium last night after game three of the NLDS playoff game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers; and wow, did things get ugly real fast.
Argus Streaming News, which did an excellent job of posting real-time information during the August clashes with Ferguson police, posted a 25-minute video showing a small group of demonstrators chanting outside the ballpark Monday evening, with another group of white Cards fans chanting right back at them.
With contrasting chants of "USA USA" and "Africa Africa," a blonde woman yelling at one point, "We're the one's that gave ya'll your freedoms," and a whole slew of other racially charged insults hurled at the protesters, this appears to be the ugliest scene we've seen outside of a sporting event that didn't involve violence. That's not a silver lining, Cardinals fans.
Video below, via Argus Streaming News:
In case you missed out on the action, the Cardinals are holding a "Pep Rally" in a stadium lot the evening prior to Game 4. Should be a great time. Bring your camera.
GAME 4 Reminders: First pitch is at 4:07 pm CT. Busch Stadium gates open at 2 pm. Pep Rally is from 1-3 pm in the #BallparkVillage lot.
