Protesters upset with the acquittal of a white former police officer in the death of a black man unfurled a banner at the St. Louis Cardinals' home game against the Milwaukee Brewers that read: "Stop Killing Us."

The banner displayed Friday night over the railing in the left-field upper-deck seats had a Cardinals mascot drawn on it, with the redbird clutching a "Racism Lives Here" sign. The hashtag "#ExpectUs" was drawn on the mascot's jersey.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that demonstrators shouted, "No justice, no baseball!" Police eventually ushered the group out of the stadium.

Later, protesters marched to Broadway and Walnut, where a confrontation occurred between them and police. The newspaper reports that an officer was seen using a stun gun on one protester. It wasn't immediately clear what prompted it.
