ENABLING VIOLENCE: Missouri Attorney General Says Soros-Backed St. Louis Prosecutor Released All George Floyd Rioters from Jail

St. Louis, Missouri, released more than 30 protesters arrested during George Floyd demonstrations since Sunday from jail.

St. Louis police arrested 36 people between Sunday and Tuesday. That includes the 25 who were arrested during protests between Monday and early Tuesday morning when four officers were shot. All have been released without charges, according to St. Louis 5 KSDK.

The potential charges included misdemeanors and felonies for burglaries, property damage, assault, stealing, and unlawful use of a weapon, among others.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt pointed the finger at St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner in a Tuesday morning tweet.

“In a stunning development, our office has learned that every single one of the St. Louis looters and rioters arrested were released back onto the streets by local prosecutor Kim Gardner,” Schmitt tweeted.

Schmitt’s spokesman added that because many of the alleged offenders had not been charged after 24 hours, police had to release them by law.


Gardner’s camp pushed back against Schmitt’s claim.

“Two were released after being issued a summons, eight were released after prosecutors refused to immediately file charges and the remainder were released while police apply for charges," police spokeswoman Michelle Woodling said in a statement.

Gardner, who recently kicked off her reelection campaign, was criticized during her initial run for circuit attorney for accepting at least $30,000 from a super PAC belonging to controversial liberal billionaire George Soros. He is well known for supporting candidates, specifically city attorneys, who push liberal bail reform and sentencing platforms.

Riots and looting have been a major issue in St. Louis over the past couple of days and resulted in the death of a 77-year-old black retired police captain, David Dorn, who was killed by looters as he tried to defend his friend’s pawnshop.

The protests were sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis who was killed while in police custody.

The white police officer who can be seen in a viral video kneeling on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes was initially charged with third-degree murder. The charge was raised to second-degree murder Wednesday.
