State Senator Protesting Ferguson a Victim of Attempted Carjacking

By    |   Saturday, 22 November 2014 07:56 PM

A Missouri state senator and gun-control advocate who has protested police actions in Ferguson surrounding the Michael Brown shooting death said that an armed man tried to carjack her early Saturday in St. Louis.

Jamilah Nasheed, 42, said on Twitter that a gun was pointed at her while getting out of her car in front of her house. The man had demanded her keys to the vehicle, Fox-TV2 reports.

But the man got back into his car and drove away when Nasheed refused to turn over her keys, St. Louis Police told Fox. The incident occurred shortly after midnight.

Nasheed, a Democrat, was elected to the Senate last year after serving in the Missouri House of Representatives since 2007. Throughout her career, she has supported many gun-control measures and voted against a bill that would have allowed state employees to keep firearms in their vehicles, the Daily Caller reports.

In the Brown case, Nasheed has begun a petition to replace St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch, who is investigating the case, with a special prosecutor, the Daily Caller reports.

She also attacked Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon for imposing a state of emergency this week as the city awaits a grand jury decision.

Last month, Nasheed was arrested during a Ferguson protest, the Daily Caller reports. Police said she was visibly intoxicated and was carrying a loaded 9-mm handgun when she was arrested, according to the report.
