ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Mayor Slay says he fully recognizes the impact of Ferguson on the City of St. Louis.
The mayor says there’s so much to work on after the Michael Brown shooting and another officer involved-shooting in the city.
“Whether it’s economic disparities, racism and lack of trust between the community and the police department,” he says.
Slay says the path forward is to talk personally with citizens, community leaders, clergy, the NAACP and non-profits—something he says he’s doubling up on.
Without specifics, the mayor told Hancock and Kelly on KMOX that if protests come to St. Louis “we can handle it.”
