    Police arrested 36 for rioting and looting in St. Louis this week  and all of them have been released

    Dozens of people were arrested this week for rioting and looting in St. Louis during demonstrations that started as protests of the police killing of George Floyd — and all of them have been released, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt criticized the release of 36 people who were arrested.

    "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.

    From the Post-Dispatch:

    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, the spokeswoman, Michelle Woodling, said in an email.

    Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner's spokeswoman, Allison Hawk, said in an email that police only sought charges in "a few" cases of stealing during looting, and prosecutors refused charges because they wanted more investigation. "In an effort to hold the offenders accountable, we need essential evidence from the police. These matters remain under investigation," she wrote.
