  • Mayor Lyda Krewson addresses the public during a Facebook Live video

"To be clear, it is shocking and misguided for Mayor Lyda Krewson of St. Louis, to broadcast the addresses of those who dare to express a different viewpoint of an issue of public concern", Sara Baker, policy director of the ACLU of Missouri, said in a statement Friday.

Activists can be heard shouting "eat the rich" and "why are you threatening us?" The city's prosecutor wasn't available.

Numerous protests have devolved into violence in recent weeks since the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in police custody in Minnesota.

Missouri has a so-called Castle Doctrine, or a law that permits people the use of deadly force if people enter their homes.

She said the group gave her some papers about how they thought the city's budget should be spent, at which time she stepped away from the camera to grab the papers off of her desk.

According to a Missouri Law Review of property law (pdf), gated communities have been affirmed in courts as being able to bar entry to non-residents who don't receive invitations to enter.

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson is facing backlash on social media Friday night for reading the names and street addresses of protesters who are calling on the city to defund the police department.

The Washington Post was unable to independently confirm the couple's identity as of early Monday, at which point a video of the scene on social media had been viewed nearly 8 million times.

One video posted to Twitter shows the woman holding her gun at a protester who is wearing a t-shirt that reads, 'Hands up, don't shoot'. While this is public information, I did not intend to cause distress or harm to anyone.

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that ... it's only right that we visit her at her home", said state representative Rasheen Aldridge, speaking into a megaphone at the protest on Sunday.

During the live video briefing Friday, the mayor was asked about meeting with protesters outside City Hall. "The update is removed and again, I apologize". Following a number of tense confrontations over the weekend, more than 40,000 people signed an online petition calling on Krewson to resign. "I think we need our police department".

Despite Krewson's claim that she didn't mean any harm, it doesn't take much of an imagination to jump to some pretty damning conclusions about the motives behind this reveal, especially since numerous proposals she read through suggested that the city should cut its police funding down to zero dollars.
