Actor/rapper Nick Cannon joined protesters in St. Louis after an AK-47 toting white cop, Jason Stockley, was acquitted in the murder of unarmed black man, Anthony Lamar Smith, in 2011.

Judge Timothy Wilson ruled on Friday that Stockley was not guilty of murdering Smith, a suspected drug dealer, during a high-speed chase in 2011. The decision sparked protests in St. Louis in which 38 people were arrested.

Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder, despite taking his personal AK-47 gun with him while on duty that night. He also remarked that he was “going to kill this motherf*cker” during the car chase.

Cannon joined the protests on Saturday evening wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey. He was filmed raising his fists to chants of “no justice, no profit.”
