|CHICAGO Will Hernandez Giants Jersey , Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Police on Saturday put up barricades around the courthouse and police headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, bracing for more protests that are expected to come in days.
Protests broke out in the city on the border of Missouri and Illinois Friday after a St. Louis circuit judge acquitted former police officer Jason Stockley who fatally shot 24-year-old Lamar Smith in 2011.
Protesters blocked highways and destroyed public and private properties by throwing rocks at police officers and bricks at the St. Louis mayor's house.
As a result, nine St. Louis police officers and one Missouri Highway Patrol officer were injured by thrown bricks, two of whom were transported to a hospital later. In the meanwhile, 32 people were arrested by the police.
In a tweet, the Missouri Police Department stated Vita Vea Buccaneers Jersey , "Agitators refuse to disperse causing property damage near Mayor's home. Those who don't comply with police orders subject to arrest."
In less than two hours, the police posted another tweet, "Agitators are being warned that this is no longer a lawful assembly. If they do not disperse, they will be subject to arrest."
Former police officer Stockley was found not guilty of first-degree murder and armed critical action on Friday, almost six years after the incident happened when he shot Smith five times after a high-speed car chase that ended with a collision.
Prosecutors said Stockley planted a gun on Smith, as Stockley's DNA was found on the gun but Smith's was not. Stockley maintains his statement that he was acting in self-defense.
Prior to the not-guilty verdict, Republican Missouri Governor Eric Greitens put the U.S. National Guard on standby in expectation of demonstrations Uchenna Nwosu Chargers Jersey , deploying some troops at points of critical infrastructure.
"We know this verdict causes pain for many people," Greitens said in a statement. "I'm committed to protecting everyone's constitutional right to protest peacefully, while also protecting people's lives, homes, and communities. For anyone who protests, please do so peacefully."

MIAMI, the United States Tyquan Lewis Colts Jersey , Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- As bad as Hurricane Irma is, an even more insidious threat is coming, as climate change causes sea levels to slowly rise and threatens to put large chunks of the U.S. state of Florida under water.
While ocean levels have risen and fallen over tens of thousands of years, they have remained the same over the past 5,000 or 6,000 years, since the dawn of recorded human history.
Now Tremaine Edmunds Bills Jersey , however, is the first time in recorded history that they are changing.
"South Florida's doomsday doesn't come with a hurricane. It just comes very quietly as the water creeps up," Daniel Kreeger, executive director of the Association of Climate Change Officers, told Xinhua.
"We're so close to sea level that if sea level is rising, there's a point where you don't need a storm (to do harm). You're just underwater," he said.
That sits in sharp contrast with just two decades ago Terrell Edmunds Steelers Jersey , when the main concern of residents and property owners was hurricanes, he said.
Now, low lying cities worldwide, from Mumbai to Bangkok to right here in southern Florida, are under the same threat.
According to images collected by NASA, global sea levels have risen 3 inches (7.6 cm) since 1992.
The U.S. National Ocean Service said global sea levels will likely continue to rise, although it remains unknown by how much.
Some experts said that could spell disaster for southern Florida Taven Bryan Jaguars Jersey , which includes Miami and the surrounding area.
A confluence of factors puts Miami under particular risk. For one thing, the city lies on a foundation of limestone, which allows water to seep through from underneath and come up through the sewers and drainage system to cause flooding.
That can happen during the king tide season -- a time of higher-than-usual tides -- and can in some cases happen without even a drop of rain.
City officials, politicians and climate change experts with whom Xinhua has spoken said this confluence of factors -- rising sea levels, a limestone foundation and king tides -- threaten to make large parts of the area uninhabitable.
While it remains unknown whether that will take decades or a century, local residents said it seems to be getting worse.
Jose, a waiter at a downtown Miami hotel who only gave his first name Sony Michel Patriots Jersey , said even a couple of hours of rain can flood the streets in certain neighborhoods in Miami.
"I've been here all my life and I don't remember it being this bad when I was a kid," he told Xinhua a couple of days before the hurricane hit.
"Just a couple of weeks ago there was a couple of hours of rain and already the water was up here," Jose said, demonstrating with his hands that water was above his ankles.
Danny, an Uber driver in downtown Miami, echoed those sentiments, telling Xinhua that rainfall causes light flooding in some streets as he traverses the area.
Some in the real estate business said Florida may be the next big real estate investment destination for foreign investors including Chinese. But if parts of the state see more frequent flooding Saquon Barkley Giants Jersey , that trend could reverse.
Southern Florida is historically a major retirement destination for Americans, a party place for the rich and famous, and boasts a vibrant Cuban community that has lived there since the 1960s, many of whom are wealthy.
