ACLU Calls for More Checks and Balances of Local Control of St. Louis Police Dept.

St. Louis Police are now under the control of Mayor Francis Slay, and that has raised concerns of too much power in one person’s hands.


6/1/11-Sixty St. Louis police officers have volunteered to spend a week in tornado-ravaged Joplin, and they left in a caravan of vehicles late Wednesday morning. The officers will assist in the Joplin recovery effort in several capacities, including traffic control, perimeter checkpoints, and patrolling high-impact zones to watch for looters. They even packed shields and other riot gear, though they're not anticipating trouble. They just have it on a "better to have and not need" basis. Before leaving, officers were told very bluntly that they likely are not in for a pleasant experience. "We're told there are a lot of bad smells," a sergeant informed the assembled officers, "including rotting food, dead pets...possibly even body parts". (KMOX/Brett Blume)
