ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Protesters demonstrated outside a St. Louis Cardinals game at Busch Stadium on Tuesday for the second night in a row, demanding justice after the death of an unarmed 18-year-old in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
The group called for the arrest of Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown on Aug. 9. But some Cardinals fans, who were there to see their team defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers, said they weren’t too happy to see the demonstrators at the game.
“I don’t understand why they’re here,” said Susan Wilson, a waitress who lives in Farmington, Mo. Watching as about 20 protesters gathered outside Busch Stadium, Wilson said she wasn’t bothered by their presence, but she didn’t understand why they chose to show up to the game.
