St. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – There’s another twist to the Kiener Plaza occupation; at two o’clock this afternoon a former St. Louis County Police officer plans to deliver a speech about police brutality.

The notification came in last night.  The information is sketchy;  the officer who will be making the statement is not mentioned but it involves a group calling themselves “Occupy Police Team & Officers of the 99.” The speech,  according to the release will involve what the group calls  history with St Louis Police and brutal tactics used against protesters by some departments. It will also include the officers own firsthand experience with police brutality.

The goal according to the group is to call out Mayor Slay and put an end to what they call the planned raid 3 p.m. this afternoon.

    Slay is using veterans and the Salvation Army to pressure the occupiers out of Kiener Plaza? Deceptive and deceitful. Francis would not think of this. It has to be a Rainford. Both the Tree and the Vets should be on the Plazas west of Tucker our real civic center.
