The white cop Jason Stockley who shot a black man Anthony Lamar to death during car chase which has led to massive protests in St Louis says he has nothing to apologize for.

Despite concerns over Stockley taking his personal AK-47 on duty that night and remarking that he was ‘going to kill this motherf**ker’ during the chase, he was found not guilty of first-degree murder on Friday, leading to an protest outburst.

During chat with St Louis Post Dispatch he said that their anger is misplaced, and said he was speaking out ‘Because I did nothing wrong. If you’re telling the truth and you’ve been wrongly accused, you should shout it from a mountain top.’

‘I don’t know how changing any number of my actions that day would have changed the outcome,’ 

‘Every resisting [arrest] looks bad, it never looks good,’ he said.

‘But you have to separate the optics from the facts.’

Those optics have led to two nights of protests in St Louis – protests that led to 32 people being arrested on Friday, as well as several police officers being hurt.

And on Saturday a day-long peaceful protest was followed by violence late that night as demonstrators smashed windows and threw rocks at police officers.

 At least six were arrested in that incident in University City, which also saw pepper spray being used on rioters.

‘I can feel for and I understand what the family is going through, and I know everyone wants someone to blame, but I’m just not the guy,’ he added. 

 He said ‘My main concern now is for the first responders, the people just trying to go to work and the protesters.

I don’t want anyone to be hurt in any way over this.’ 

On Friday at least 10 police were hurt, including one who had his jaw broken.
