saint louis - In the American city of Saint Louis, riots broke out in the early Saturday after a white former police officer was released from murder of a black suspect. The police put tear gas and rubber bullets in collisions with the protesters.

What began as a peaceful protest after Friday's detention took place became violent when the police claimed a small group of protesters. The police fired with tears when protesters poured windows from a library, a restaurant, a house and threw stones and bottles. Ten police officers were injured. Certainly 23 protesters were arrested, police said.

After Friday's ruling, about six hundred protesters marched from the courthouse through the center of Saint Louis, scanning 'No justice, no peace.' Some wore a banner with 'Black Lives Matter'.
