The Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression will be hosting a Rally and March on October 22. This event marks our continuing participation in the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality. This year’s O22 rally will be at 4:00 p.m., October 22, at Poelker Park (Twelfth and Market). The title this year is “Towing Local Control Back to St. Louis”. We will be focusing on the ongoing scandal within the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the ongoing campaign to return control of our police back to the citizens of the city.
The Police Board’s mishandling of the Towing Scandal has made it clear that it needs to be held to higher standards of accountability. Its first reaction to this scandal, as in many other cases, was to sweep the issue under the rug. It has not apparently learned any lessons from its inadequate handling of the Rape Memo Scandal, the Missing Money Scandal, or the Cardinal Ticket Scandal.
A Police Board accountable only to far off politicians in Jefferson City is accountable to no one. We need Local Control.
We need a strong show of support to drive Local Control. Please attend and bring some friends. For further info contact John Chasnoff at 314-413-0454 or johnchasnoff at cs.com
