Yesterday, while praying for peace and unity in our city and the protection of the Saint Louis statue, Black Lives Matter protesters started to harass, berate, and assault the Catholics that were peacefully praying. We did nothing in retaliation

(Thread with documentation) 1/8
We allowed them to spit on us, call us names, put their fingers in our faces, push us, and antagonize, but we did not retaliate. We continued to peacefully pray.

At that moment someone in the crowd poured an unidentified liquid on the older man, pictured below protecting his head, and was then attacked by a violent individual, also pictured below attacking the elderly man.

We got the elderly man out of there, and I was about to leave to retrieve my lunch as a friend of mine had just come over to tell me my food had arrived. The mob then approached him. They asked if he was with me, and when he said yes they began to berate him.

They took his walking stick from him and when he didn’t react they knocked his hat off of his head, called him a skin head, and attacked him. At this point I intervened to pull the attacker off of my friend, and I was attacked by the mob and the attacker.

5/8
I will be pressing charges against the attackers. If you can identify anyone in these videos or pictures, please let me know. This can not stand. The police were called 6 times by others on the sidelines and never showed up.

The righteous must defend themselves, as the it appears the government no longer is. I hope @realDonaldTrump, @GovParsonMO, @HawleyMO, @RoyBlunt, @DrSamPage, @LydaKrewson and all other public officials address this, as if this problem isn’t corrected, it will only get worse.

7/8
Please continue to pray for peace as we go through this frightening time in our nations history.

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven”
-Matthew 5:10
