ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - After hearing the passionate and emotional speech to protesters by St. Louis Public Safety Director Judge Jimmie Edwards, KMOX host Mark Reardon says he's ready to join a protest "on Goodfellow and Martin Luther King" Boulevards to bring awareness to violent crimes in the city of St. Louis. 

The rant on Reardon's show Wednesday afternoon, which can be heard in the video at the top of this page, was brought on after hearing what Edwards said to protesters Tuesday morning when he attended a gathering of anti-crime protestors on the south lawn outside City Hall. The protesters have been gathering in front of City Hall and calling for Mayor Lyda Krewson to resign. 

"Let's do it. I might have to up the life insurance policy before I do that., I'll talk to my wife. It's a serious offer," Reardon says. "I bet I can get people out there to march with you. I bet people in the city know he's right when he addresses the little white anarchists from Ballwin, all the white guilty 20 somethings that don't even know what they're talking about. They don't care about Black lives. They don't care at all."
