“We don’t have nearly enough, not even close to enough, police officers in the Metro East,” he said.
East St. Louis Police named Howard Dotson Junior and Rufus Thomas as person’s of interest in the hold up of the Ira Grove Baptist Church on Belmont.
East St. Louis Police Chief Michael Floore says nobody was hurt during the armed robbery Sunday at IRA Grove Baptist Church.
“Lets have our citizens look out for those people, lets have our citizens look out for each other,” Mayor Alvin Parks told KMOX.
“Innocent people – youths and others – will be swept up and detained without reason simply for the color of their clothing. This is dangerous and impermissible.”
Police chief says Sunday’s acts of gun violence may be connected.
East St. Louis mayor and police chief support Chicago mayor’s idea. Their state’s attorney does not.
Mayor, police chief, state’s attorney and others ask for community to rise up and stop the brutality.
