FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – New video of the QuikTrip the convenience mart on West Florissant has surfaced.  The gas station was set on fire on Sunday night during the looting that followed a protest vigil for Michael Brown.

An 18-year-old employee of the store who did not want to be identified told FOX 2 on Monday that, “I thought I was going to die, I really thought I was going to die.”

In this new video you can see a line of police standing in riot gear near the gas pumps.  Smoke and flames from the store rises behind them. Protesters toss stones and yell for justice into the night.


    • The truth

      Your comment is awaiting moderation.

      The “New Century Foundation” studies Federal crime reports, and found significant differences in crime ratio between races, verified by the FBI’s NCVS, National Crime Victimization Survey, and The Department of Justice’s UCR, Uniform Crime Reports, FBI Communication’s Division, 304-625-4995.

      They state emphatically that the Judicial System is not biased against minorities.

      Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

      Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

      Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

      The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

      Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

      Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

      Blacks are seven times more likely to go to prison, Hispanics three times, and the reason is clear, because from 1980 to 2003 the US incarceration rate has tripled….

    This is just insane. I’m highly disappointed to call myself a black resident of St. Louis right now. I don’t see how destroying your OWN community will help bring justice. This is nothing but an excuse for ghetto people to act like fools. They are destroying the good name and reputation of some respectable black citizens! I’m sure Martin Luther King is turning in his grave 100x over right now. When will it end?

      If you are younger than fourty and paid little attention in school you probably don’t know that it has been this way for at least fifty years. Google this, “1960’s race riots”, Rodney King Riots”, that will give you a start and I am sure you will be able to proceed from there.

      You would think that we would all learn a lesson by now . Im afraid it will get worse before it gets better.. funny thing is the races seem to get along with each other better in the south than they do any where else!

      Well said, I’m sure the good Dr would be sickened by what amounts to nothing more than thugery and an excuse to steal.

    “Protesters toss stones and yell for justice into the night.” Some one is clearly deaf as they are yelling let it burn…that doesn’t sound like justice to me at all. They rejoice as the businesses that employed people in this community to burn. I sure in the hell wouldn’t re-open my business in Ferguson after members of the community show pride in destroying it.

  • Rita

    I think its kind of funny. Its night time, they are all across the street yelling about let it burn. It takes a lot of tough and brave people to hide in the shadows. If those store employee’s would have been hurt or worse yet killed, the people that did this would be brought up on murder charges. Some of those employee’s are only 18 years old. Same a the young man that was killed. It does not take 2 wrongs to make a right. I highly doubt QT will rebuild that store. The community now has been labeled as a dangerous area to work, live and shop. Congratulations to people that brought shame to their neighbors and relatives. Pat yourselves on the back for a job well done!

    I am by no way racist, but it woulda been nice to see the pump blow up withb the rioters and looters in it. Woulda been nice to see karma working that list fast.

    This video is so disheartening I swear. I’m ashamed to even be from Ferguson this isn’t the place I grew up . Why would you tear the community down. Those businesses have nothing to do with Mike Brown

  • Mike

    How stupid for these idiots to make their neighborhood worse than it was. Now they dont have gas and the other items close to them, I hope QT dont rebuild. This is another excuse to cause trouble and steel from someone. I hope their house was robbed while they were there.

  • evian257

    Ignorant stupid low-lifes doing their best to reinforce racial stereotypes. And they wonder why white people won’t give up the N-word. All these idiots are doing is harming the innocent, law-abiding citizens in their community and destroying businesses that had NOTHING to do with the tragedy of Mike Brown’s death.

      walmart and q t will do such, the small businesses that were looted etc some may leave, others will not be able to, and in time they will fold as the customer base drops to level of which they cannot afford to stay in business. insurance rates will take a jump, some will be paid then cancelled, and those will have hard time finding insurance affordable. everything is linked. may not be apparent at first glance,

    Not right.. But black people are tired of their race being killed and having to live in fear. It still don’t make it right for them to use violence!!

    • Dumbestthingever

      Seriously? Blacks Kill blacks everyday…and you hear that the cop may be white and blow this out of proportion. Why not wait and actually hear a legitimate story…they have already proved the kid with Mike changed his story. How soon we forget that. And the cops haven’t even said what the race of the officer was. Is it better for you if he was black? My $ is on “yes” but you wouldn’t admit that.

  • Brian

    Let them burn their city down put a fence around them and they can all kill each other. Nothing but a bunch of trash. Come one St Louis lets catch up with Detriot. We can have a city no one wants to live or visit.

  • Debbie Thompson

    Pure ignorance of these people. Get a life and make a change with education not violence and listening to your ignorance by cursing and yelling only shows your cowardice and immaturity. Now you have no Quick Trip and what other businesses will want to come to Ferguson now. I really enjoyed the way Ferguson was building up and enjoyed coming to the community events in Ferguson. I will not be back now. Go ahead and destroy your community. Damage it for your kids and your parents. PURE IGNORANCE!

  • Sir

    I’m sure the violence will subside on welfare check day when they drop their bottles and bricks to stand in line for “they” free money.

      I was just saying that everyone, and every business affected should be reimbursed out of the social services till paid in full. That will be a long long time, since just Walmart lost millions Sunday night. No checks passed out, sorry, get a job and stop looting.

  • Carlos

    They should not rebuild this store. Instead leave it exactly as it is as a monument to savagery and stupidity.

  • Dumbestthingever

    Are these people seriously that stupid? They are tearing up their own neighborhood?? Yeah, that’s a way to show the cops how tough you really are. Just proves they have nothing better to do…like a JOB!

  • Nasdaq Lady

    All of these thugs say “NO JUSTICE” – “NO PEACE”
    How about “NO PEACE” – NO WELFARE”

  • Jsmith

    Maybe if they would act like the rest of society then maybe they would get tarted like the rest of society.
