WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS LANGUAGE THAT MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME VIEWERS
ST. LOUIS — A frustrated woman took to social media to share her thoughts about the #BlackLivesMatter protesters in St. Louis.
Peggy Hubbard posted a video to Facebook on Thursday regarding the protests in the streets of St. Louis. Her rant was motivated by the death of a 9-year-old girl who was doing homework on her mother’s bed Tuesday evening. The next day, protesters instead took to the streets to march for an 18-year-old shot and killed by police who were serving a warrant for his arrest. The Police allege that the teen pointed a stolen gun at them.
“Last night who do you think they protested for?” Hubbard said in her video. “The thug, the criminal, because they’re howling, ‘police brutality.’ Are you kidding me? Police brutality? How about black brutality.”
Hubbard says she believes the protesters have misdirected their anger.
FOX 2 reports Jamyla Bolden, 9, was struck by a bullet in a drive-by shooting while laying in her mother’s bed doing homework. Her mother was shot in the leg but survived.
“A little girl is dead. You say black lives matter? Her life mattered,” said an emotional Hubbard. “Her future mattered. Her promises mattered. It mattered.”
The six-minute video has been viewed more than 4-million times and has over 222,000 shares.
