CNN falsely claims the use of racial slur by St. Louis police officer acquitted of murder | SOFREP

St. Louis, Missouri — Demonstrators flood the streets of downtown St. Louis in protest over the controversial “not guilty” verdict for Jason Stockley, the former St. Louis police officer who was on trial for shooting and killing an unarmed African American man, Anthony Lamar Smith, in December 2011.

As the city along with its local law enforcement, brace for the worst, CNN sent their correspondent, Ryan Young to cover the ongoing protests in downtown St. Louis, which for the most part have been non-violent. However, in the most awkward and troubling of reporting, CNN’s Jake Tapper who was hosting his show “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” went to Young for a live update as to the current situation on the ground in St, Louis.
