St Louis Prosecutor Refuses To Accept Cases From Police Officers
St Louis prosecutor refuses to accept cases from police officers accused of racism.
Attorney refuses to advance investigations of officers who have allegedly posted racist and violent comments on social media.
The top prosecutor in St Louis has compiled an “exclusion list” of dozens of police officers whose investigations she will not advance by bringing charges or processing warrants because they have allegedly posted racist and violent comments on social media.
Kimberly Gardner, the circuit attorney for the Missouri city, created the initial list in August last year with 28 names but it has grown since and another 22 officers were added to it this week.
That brings the total number of officers she will not work with in the city’s police department to 59, questioning their credibility based on accusations of offensive posts on Facebook.
