The #Ferguson protesters are embarrassingly pathetic – yet they appear not to even notice they have devolved into a parody unto themselves.
Saint Louis – Rams fans and Ferguson protesters fought Sunday afternoon outside the Edward Jones Dome after the Rams secured a victory over the visiting Seattle Seahawks, the defending Super Bowl Champions.
At around 3 p.m. a handful of fans argued with protesters, who were yelling and chanting, near the intersection of North Broadway and Cole streets.
The yelling escalated, a fan appeared to spit on one of the protesters and he was then struck on the head, at which point a melee ensued and punches were thrown.
At one point during the scuffle, a protester carrying an upside-down American flag used the pole as a weapon, attempting to strike a fan.
A short time later, after the initial confrontation, a fan grabbed the flag and ran with it for a brief period; protesters then wrestled the flag away.
Two women were arrested after the fight, including a juvenile, police said.
Two people were injured including one woman who was punched in the face after chanting “Let’s go Rams” to protesters. She was later treated and released by paramedics. Police did not provide details on the second victim’s injuries. (read more)
