Today, Governor Eric Greitens and Christina Wilson—Anthony Lamar Smith's fiancée and the mother of his son—urged peace in a message to the people of St. Louis.

"If you feel like you want to speak out, speak how you feel and whatever comes to you. Just do it in a peaceful way,” said Christina Wilson. “Anyone who truly loves Anthony and his daughter, I prefer for you guys to do everything peacefully.”

“I ask every Missourian to please follow Christina's courageous and compassionate example. Whatever the verdict is, we will protect every single person's right to peacefully protest. And whatever the verdict is, we will also protect people's lives, homes, and communities,” said Governor Greitens.
