A civilian in St. Louis, Missouri captured the murder of an innocent homeless man Monday afternoon on video in broad daylight, sparking outrage and calls for the removal of St. Louis circuit attorney, Kim Gardner.
The video was posted to Twitter on Monday and quickly went viral. The stunning clip shows a man in a yellow and black jacket standing calmly behind the victim and taking about 30 seconds to reload his weapon and fire multiple shots into the victim, who is innocently sitting on the curb minding his own business.
“This was in #stl today in broad daylight,” wrote the account that posted the clip to Twitter.
“Dude executed without a care in the world. We have a corrupt George Soros funded prosecutor and ¼ of the murders in St. Louis are actually prosecuted. That is what y’all get when you vote for soft on crime Democrats. This is the outcome. Another black man executed, where’s BLM?”
WARNING: This footage is graphic. Viewer discretion is advised.
As the man with the gun shot the victim, the video turns away, and the man shooting the clip is heard saying, “Oh my god, he just f*** killed him. He just f**** killed him.”
This latest viral clip comes as Republicans in Missouri are making a push to remove Kim Gardner from her office in St. Louis, arguing she is in part responsible for the rise in violent crime in the city.
“My office has filed a petition for a quo warranto,” Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey said in a press release on February 23rd. A quo warranto allows him to remove her from office for negligence of duty involving crime, victims, and victims’ families.
“The second claim is that she has failed to confer and inform victims of the procedural posture and ultimate disposition in criminal cases,” Bailey’s statement reads.
“Finally, she has neglected her duties by failing to charge new cases referred to her by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department,” the AG continued.
“These three behaviors constitute a continued pattern of failure of duties to discharge her office, and represent neglect under the statutes, and warrant her removal … At the end of the day, it’s about the rule of law, and about justice.”
