Democratic St. Louis mayor forced to move away from home over BLM protests happening on doorstep

The mayor of Missouri’s St. Louis revealed to the media that she hasn’t stayed at her home since July due to protests in the vicinity, becoming the second Democratic politician forced to relocate by Black Lives Matter rallies.
“We have not lived at home for two months,” Mayor Lyda Krewson said in a text message to media outlet STL Today. Krewson and her husband relocated “to de-escalate” the situation and “save police resources” during a series of protests that took place outside her home in the Central West End.

Another reason for the move was that “our neighbors were being disturbed and threatened,” Krewson said, adding, “I ran for this job – my neighbors did not.”
The mayor said that she hadn’t stayed at her place since late July, and used her and her husband’s own money to temporarily relocate.

Throngs of Black Lives Matter protesters have gathered near Krewson’s house several times in June and July, fuelled by the nationwide outrage over the death of black Minnesotan George Floyd in police custody. Protesters demanded that she defund the St. Louis police department, which she refused to do. Krewson herself defended her stance, insisting that law enforcement need to be funded appropriately and that supporting them “should not be a partisan issue.”

Things are a little different, when these riots come home, are they not, Madame Mayor?!?
