Police shut down a Black Lives Matter demonstration and arrested reporters and cameraman in St. Louis on October 3. The arrests came after protesters blocked the highway and marked the highest number of arrests during the protests since former police Officer Jason Stockley was acquitted on murder charges on September 15, a news report said. Police had previously arrested around 130 protesters on September 17. Also among them were Jon Ziegler, also known as Rebelutionary_Z, who broadcasted the protest and subsequent arrests on his YouTube channel. Ziegler was also arrested on September 17, and the video of the mass arrest went viral after the incident. A reporter and cameraman from The Young Turks were also among those arrested during a protest in downtown St. Louis on Tuesday. Credit: Rebelutionary_Z via Storyful
