Steve Stenger, a Democrat in St. Louis County, Missouri, won his race for St. Louis County Executive.

So, why did disgruntled marchers from nearby Ferguson target Stenger? Simple: Because the cameras were there and because they could.

Ringleader “Tef Poe” spread anti-police hatred at the event and helped “shut it down.”

Shut it down!!! #ferguson #clayton outside Sheraton at Stengers Party
