Tweet of the Day: Blacks in Missouri protest latest shooting by torching Old Glory

On Wednesday, St. Louis was rocked by another police shooting that resulted in the death of a black teen. The back story, according to the official report, is that the suspect opened fire on a police officer who returned fire, killing the kid.

Residents of the largely black Shaw neighborhood, where the shooting occurred, have already made up their minds about what really went down. On Thursday, they “protested.”

This tweet was posted by a resident of the area. What are the protesters trying to tell us?
