“ST. LOUIS — After days of protests and more than 100 arrests discontent with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department finally boiled over Wednesday, with many in the city calling for new leadership among law enforcement.
The main target of the criticism was Lawerence O’Toole, who has served as interim police chief since Sam Dotson, the department’s embattled former leader, stepped down in April. The city is currently searching for a permanent replacement, but in the meantime O’Toole is in charge of leading the police force as it faces major demonstrations over the acquittal of a white former officer who killed a black man.
But across the city, a growing number of people of people, including both protesters and several local business leaders, now say O’Toole has failed that test.
The most prominent voice calling for O’Toole’s ouster was Chris Sommers, a restauranteur who owns the Pi Pizzeria in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood.
In a Facebook post reprinted by the Riverfront Times, Sommers wrote that he was in his restaurant Tuesday evening, when police began firing tear gas and non-lethal weapons. There being no protesters around at the time, Sommers wrote, an as officers “continued to shoot, I lost my shit and screamed at them for terrorizing our guests.”
