Mayor Slammed for Reading Names, Addresses of Anti-Police Protesters Live On-Air

This is simply unacceptable.

Political and cultural tension are running extremely high in several areas of the country in 2020, as Americans grapple with a one-two punch of a pandemic and a massive societal movement centered around equality.

These are strange times, no doubt, and it has pushed some of our fellow countrymen to do some very silly things.

Such is the case this week in Missouri, where a Democratic mayor has decided to dox protesters live, on-the-air.

Those calling for her resignation accused the mayor of intimidating protesters through “doxxing,” the Internet-based practice of publishing someone’s personal information as a vehicle for revenge via the violation of privacy.

Krewson later apologized for the incident.

In a statement Friday evening, Krewson, a Democrat, apologized for causing any “distress or harm to anyone” but said the names and streets the protesters lived on were already “public information.”

“Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters and comment cards to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today. While this is public information, never did I intend to cause distress or harm to anyone. The post has been removed and again, I sincerely apologize,” the mayor said in a statement on Facebook later Friday.
